I bought the waterproof version of this mascara and while the thickening effect was somewhat compromised, the staying power was impressive! I actually went to purchase the Maybelline Rocket Waterproof Mascara after reading reviews but I couldn’t find it (I wonder if we get that one in SA?) so I bought this one prior to my trip to Mauritius.

I swam, I snorkelled and the mascara did not budge. It is a bit of a mission to take off but I bought makeup remover wipes specifically designed for removing waterproof makeup and it came off fairly effectively then. Definitely recommend.
