waterproof mascara

I wear two coats of mascara: one regular, and one waterproof. I've been doing this daily since last summer because....

1. It makes my eyelashes look extra long! Sometimes I get asked if my eyelashes are real or fake. [They're totally real ;)]
2. If I shower in the middle of the day, I don't have to worry about redoing my makeup. This is great if I go work out in the morning. In the summer, this is also great because my mascara stays on when I swim!

The two types of mascara I wear daily:

Maybelline Great Lash BIG in Blackest Black
I love Diorshow by Dior, but since that's a little pricey, I like to use this mascara from Maybelline. I used to use the regular Great Lash mascara until I tried this one with the "BIG" brush! The brush is much larger than the other one and I think it makes my lashes look like they have more volume.
Find it here for $5.19 at Ulta

Cover Girl Exact Eyelights Waterproof Mascara
A perk about this waterproof mascara is that its color subtly "matches" your eye color. My eyes are Hazel so I use hazel or Green, depending on what's available at the store.
CoverGirl Exact EyeLights Waterproof Mascara, Black Sapphire 730 Blue Eyes

What is your favorite mascara? Have you used the ones I use, and how do you like them? Will you be layering a waterproof mascara over a regular one this summer?
