I could be wrong as I am hardly a beauty guru, but could it be that the problem isn't the mascara but the remover? I use baby oil. I know it sounds crazily greasy, but it cuts through even thick waterproof stuff. I then use cleanser/micellar water to get rid of the oil and all the rest of the makeup. My eyes aren't greasy by the end, and there is no mascara left on them.
