Nothing is quite as synonymous with summer as a trip to the beach, lake, or pool—or if you're lucky enough, all of the above. But as much as we adore a maritime moment, one of the biggest challenges of summer can be finding waterproof makeup that actually holds up. But fret no more because a $5 Influenster-favorite mascara just got a bit of a makeover.

The beloved fan-favorite Lash Princess Mascara from essence has long been a hidden gem of the beauty world. In fact, it's chatted about so much among beauty lovers (and budget lovers) that it's word-of-mouth reputation has earned it some serious street cred. Don't believe us? The OG mascara has an impressive 4.4-star rating and has Influensters raving. Take Angelic E. who said, "This is the best mascara I have ever tried because not only does it add volume but it also adds length and curls my lashes all in one. The brush is amazing. This mascara doesn’t leave my lashes clumpy. Love it and I highly recommend." And that's not all. Its big sister, the False Lash Effect, has even more Influenster love. How does more than 2K reviews and a stellar 4.5-star rating sound? Not to mention it holds a top five spot in mascara on Influenster.

So when we learned this beloved mascara was getting a waterproof makeover all because the people demanded it, we knew we couldn't keep the news to ourselves. (Hey, the power of the people is kind of our thing here at Influensters!) And yes, this new version still rocks the same unique wand shape that has makeup lovers cheering. The conic-shaped fiber brush allows product to coat lashes for a true falsie effect. And now, you get the added benefit of that waterproof formula. Bring on the beach, baby.

The new Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara Waterproof is available right now for only $5 at the drugstore or
