I have been using max factor false lash effect (waterproof) for ages. I have quite long eye lashes but would like to 'chub' them up? This one is good, doesn't smudge etc and prefer one that is waterproof. Iv tried quite a few but they don't ever match up to the max factor one, always go back to it. Am I missing one that is fab? Don't rate maybelline and recently tried a Mac one. Would prefer waterproof. Anything fit the bill?

I have the seventeen waterproof - I buy it because I find it the best one for not smudging so not sure how it would fair in the "chubbing" stakes. I've found it quite hard to find a decent waterproof mascara.

I use Benefit They're Real. It's not strictly waterproof but has amazing staying power and it's the only one I've tried that doesn't run or smudge. I have very watery eyes, to the point that before using this I used to have to dye my lashes and define them a bit more with a clear mascara.

Haven't looked poked at 17 for years! I'm not sure they even stock it in my towns boots and Superdrug... this max factor one is fab as waterproof. Has lasted a day in centre parcs pools, flumes and Rapids!!

Yes! My eyes water too!! So annoying! The wind makes them look like I'm crying! I think Iv tried that benefit one but haven't tried that lasted one people have spoken of, can't remember what it's called now...

I use natural collection £1.99 black lash length mascara available in boots . It's amazing and as good as any of the expensive ones in my opinion . Def worth a try .

There was a bit in the tv show Shop Well for Less that compared waterproof mascaras last week and L'Oréal's 4D architect mascara came top as the best long lasting so maybe worth a look.
