I know this topic was already dicussed a bit in the former make-up and beauty thread, but I figured mascara is such a make-up essential that it deserves it's own thread. I haven't found my holy grail mascara yet but I really like:
cheap: Rimmel glameyes (for sublime separation and a natural look, easily to build up to more volume), MaxFactor 2000 Calories (volumous everyday look)
waterproof: Helena Rubinstein's Lash Queen Feline Blacks (my last holiday purchase, works great, although very natural result), YSL Everlong (used this one on my wedding, long lashes, great separation, but quite natural at the same time)
expensive: YSL Faux Cils (this is the best mascara by far, but it dries out in 3 weeks, so a waste of money basically. Still, I can't resist to buy it sometimes when it's on sale), DiorShow (very very nice volume, but a bit too clumpy for my taste).
I would love to use a mascara that is not tested on animals, but I hate Body Shop mascara's with a passion, some local shop's mascara (like Dutch HEMA) is ok though.
