new waterproof mascara

I would like to get a new waterproof mascara-I've been using Bare Escentuals's flawless definition waterproof mascara, but it dried out in the tube much quicker than I would have liked.  It was definitely waterproof though!  I need something really waterproof and sweatproof-I exercise A LOT and need something that won't run and smudge under my eyes.  If possible, I would like a mascara as close to $20 as possible-so I was thinking maybe Tarte Lights Camera Splashes Waterproof Mascara or Urban Decay's Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara?  Any other suggestions are really appreciated!  Thanks!

 I'm very outdoorsy and love to swim during the summer. I've tried all the waterproof mascaras you named, and the one mascara that has worked really well for me and have never let me down at the beach/pool/water park is:


Tarte "Lights Camera Splashes! Waterproof Mascara" (Sephora Product Page) This mascara is the best, in my opinion, because it gives me the increase in volume that I want everyday but still survives swimming. This one also conditions lashes and is not nearly as drying and hard on my lashes as so many other waterproof mascaras are. This mascara does a great job of volumizing my lashes, but they still feel soft, and look natural and feathery. It's also easier to remove with a good eyemakeup remover.than other waterproof mascaras.


As for the others, the Urban Decay "Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara" looks nice when I first apply it, but it's not a reliable waterproof mascara and the 2 times I used it I ended up with racoon eyes. As you said,  B. E. "Flawless Definition Waterprrof Mascara" is truly waterproof. It's nice and defining, but I found that it really dried out my lashes and the tube dried out fast. I love the normal version of Fairydrops "Scandal Queen," but the Fairydrops "Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara"  flakes a bit throughout the day and is so hard to take offf that I ended up losing a bunch of lashes when I tried.


I hope all this helps you! :smileyhappy:
