With a brush unlike any other we've seen, the CoverGirl Total Tease Waterproof Mascara ($9) makes it easy to reach every last lash. One side of the wand features a teeny-tiny teasing comb, perfect for the the little lashes at the inner and outer corners of your eye. This makes them look longer, though the formula is also thickening and adds volume, too.
Whether you're hitting up sweaty spin class, taking a dip in the pool, or just going about your business on a hot and humid summer day, the Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara ($26) isn't going anywhere. Plus, the rich black formula is also enhanced with fibers that wrap around your lashes, making for an ultra dramatic effect.
The O.G. version of this mascara is a fan favorite, a go-to among makeup artists and beauty editors alike. The L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Waterproof Mascara ($5.59) touts all the same volumizing and plumping effects as the classic, but in a budge-proof formula that won't leave you with raccoon eyes. Also nice: It's infused with conditioning ingredients to help keep your lashes soft and strong.

A tapered brush on the Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Colossal Spider Effect Washable Mascara ($5.69) lends dramatic volume to lashes from root to tip, while also letting you reach the lashes at the corners of your eyes. A unique liquid latex formula grips to and sets on your lashes...and won't go anywhere until you want it to.
Ever wish your favorite mascara could magically be waterproof? Now it can, thanks to the NYX Proof It! Waterproof Mascara Top Coat ($7). Simply swipe two coats of this clear gel over any regular mascara to instantly make it waterproof, while also helping to prevent clumps. Dreams do come true.
The wavy bristles on the large brush of the Lancôme Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara ($25) deliver just the right amount of creamy formula for full and lush fringe. It's totally smudge-proof, touting an impressive 24 hour staying power to boot.
For those with sensitive eyes, the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Waterproof Mascara ($25) is choice. Fragrance- and paraben-free, it's also dermatologist- and opthomalogist-tested, so there's no need to worry about irritation. The formula is infused with good-for-your-lashes jojoba oil and ceramides and is most definitely waterproof, but still comes off easily once you are ready to take it off.
