Help my lashes!

Ok so I have a problem. I'm searching for the perfect mascara. I've always had this problem because my lashes are naturally thick, full and curled. I've been told I don't need mascara but I love the extra volume look it gives me and I figured, why not.

So, I've been seriously trying every type of mascara I can get my hands on (from e.l.f. to Lancome) and so far my favorite is the Lancome Hypnose Drama which I tried in waterproof ($27, upper right picture, third from left). My fault with this mascara is after using it for awhile my brush bristles started sticking together with the mascara which made it harder to apply correctly. I love the fact that the bristles are somewhat longer than the average brush. And when they say waterproof, they mean waterproof! Using it with my lashes, I don't quite get the intense dramatic look that you get with false lashes because my lashes are thick but it does help a bit. What I really want is something that can help A LOT. 

Today I decided to purchase the Lancome Virtuose Black Carat ($27, lower right picture) which is made to curl, lengthen and volumize. I figured since my lashes are already curled the curled wand will work through it. Hopefully this works for the amount of money I have to spend since I use mascara on a daily basis. I also decided to pick up a tweezerman mini slant tweezer ($15) for my brows. Nothing's wrong with perfectly tweezed brows.

Any comments on what your perfect mascara is? I'm willing to try new things! :)
