Since my current 'waterproof' mascara just plain... isn't waterproof, I've been researching what new one to get~ One of the ones suggested was the Collection 2000 Skyscraper Waterproof Length & Definition Mascara, which is only £4.99! Well, I popped to Boots before work on Saturday and found that it had been re-branded as 'Skylash', but apart from the name change, the product packaging was identical (there was one 'Skyscraper' mascara remaining, so I compared the two).
I tried it on for work on the Saturday and these are the results after about 9 hours:

There was a noticeable 'shadow' of mascara underneath both eyes, which it was hard to capture in artificial light, but you can see it pretty well in the middle image above. As I write this on Sunday, I topped up the mascara a teensy bit for work today (just before 8), and by about 12 there was a pretty ghastly ring of black underneath my eye. XD I was still at work, though, so I just wiped it off the best I could and didn't take a picture.
This is a pretty common problem for me, I think because my lashes are quite long and straight. I guess wearing false lower lashes actually helps preserve my makeup in this case..! XD
I'm also not too happy with the way the product looks and feels on my lashes, so I think I'll be moving on to one of the other highly-rated products soon! If you have a recommendation for me, please let me know~ ^^
