How to Use
Rated 4.28 out of 5 stars
I got to try the Covergirl Clean Fresh Mascara in Extreme Black. The formula claims to add volume, length, and definition. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, talc, and mineral oil. It has a soft curved brush. It is supposed to give a lifted long and beautiful all day lash look. It is a flake, smudge, and clump proof formula. This mascara is vegan and cruelty free. I have tried several mascaras from Covergirl. There have been some I've liked and some I've been very disappointed by. The formula of this mascara isn't too wet. I feel like it's a good buildable mascara. I was able to do 3 coats without getting any clumps or flakes. I didn't experience any flakes or smudging, and I wore it for the entire day. My lashes weren't weighed down by the mascara, and they achieved a nice length, volume, and definition. This mascara doesn't provide the most extreme lashes, but it's not the most basic. My lashes were enhanced classic and very user friendly formula. I appreciate a mascara that doesn't flake or clump when I build it up. I like being able to work up my layers to a desired look. I was easily able to do this with this formula. I love that it's free of harmful ingredients, vegan, and cruelty free. The packaging is very basic, but I believe that lends to the clean line. The brush is also very basic. It doesn't have all the extra frills of brushes now, but it gets the job done and applies mascara evenly and onto all lashes. This didn't make my eyes water or give a reaction. It also removed easily at end of day. Mascara retails for $10.99 at Ulta. These opinions are mine. Will update as needed.
I love that this mascara is cruelty free and vegan. It wasn't for me, though. My lashes are pale and thin and I like a mascara that really darkens & lengthens. This mascara was very subtle...great if you want a really subtle no-makeup, natural look! that's not what i want, though. Also, My lashes naturally are stick straight and point a little down, so I curl them with a lash curler. This mascara uncurled my lashes and after the third coat they were back to completely straight. In addition this was supposed to be a waterproof mascara, and I forgot to take it off when I showered, and it pretty much came off in the water without me washing it.

Great mascara if you're looking for fluffy lashes that feel soft, never crispy. Gives me a little bit of length, good separation, and some volume without clumps. I'm definitely repurchasing. If it gave more volume it would be 5 stars. I recently found out that if I use the Pacifica Fluffy Lash Primer first the CG Clean Fresh mascara builds more length and volume than on its own. I recommend the Clean Fresh mascara on its own for a more natural fluffy lash and paired with the Pacifica primer for more fluffy volume.

Simple clean lines and packaging is in line with the product marketing. The mascara was satisfactory and decent if you're looking for a non-clumpy separated lash and lengthening look. Not much volume or curl. Great if you want a soft natural looking but considering my natural lashes are very meh, I need a mascara with more oomph.

The simplicity of this packaging is so aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It's so refreshing to see packaging not in full gold or black coloring. This mascara has a curved wand (i would prefer if it was smaller),which helps to evenly coat each lash. It's separates your lashes extremely well, and adds a bit of length. It doesn't add volume to my lashes or keep its curl throughout the day. I find this mascara doesn't transfer or give you raccoon eyes at the end of the day (my eyelids do get oily through the day and I do powder under my eyes in the morning). Be warned, this mascara will give you a very natural and fresh look. The mascara has a soft, natural black color. No matter how much you layer on the mascara coats, your lashes won't become a darker black color. It's perfect for everyday wear, but I do wish the black color was a bit darker.

This was a decent mascara, but it didn't do anything special for me personally. The brush is a weird shape that I honestly think makes the mascara harder to use. I would choose other drug store mascaras over this one.

Holy smokes! All my expectations were blown out of the water with this mascara. I was thoroughly impressed with how it lengthens and volumized my lashes. The curved wand left my lashes perfectly curved and with a beautiful flutter look. For being 'clean', this is an amazing mascara and I will be re-purchasing!

I really like this mascara for a very natural, lengthening, lightweight mascara days. It is subtle and doesn't get clumpy. It definitely coats your lashes black though and I haven't noticed flaking other than when I rubbed my eyes because I forgot I had it on. I really like the wand and how it separates your lashes and doesn't apply an overload of product.

I got this product free from a promotional box from influencer to review I think that cover girl is going in the right direction by incorporating more fresh clean beauty and this is a perfect addition to a summer make up collection as it is light and airy but still gives you volume and length

It gives my lashes volume and it makes them look full. It's easy to apply and I'll definitely be purchasing in the future

I don't think there's anything special about this mascara, but it's also not BAD. I feel like it does its job perfectly fine and I love that it boasts a clean formula. The wand is curved, making it easier to apply to your lashes. The formula is quite thin, meaning that you're not left with any clumps after applying it. I have very stubborn, stubby lashes so I feel like a lot of mascaras perform very similarly. This is a great touch for light, refreshed looks!

I'm a tried and true waterproof mascara person and this didn't disappoint. Not too dry and clumpy. I didn't find it flaking off during the day.

This mascara was terrible. The mascara is too thin. I applied several coats but I couldn't see a difference between the mascara and my bare lashes. Save your money.

First time trying out clean beauty and was so happy that I received this COVERGIRL Clean Fresh Voxbox!! I love how this mascara is made of simple ingredients yet does it's job! It is long wear and does gives my eyelash the volume and length but you need to build it up, for me I did up to 3 applications to achieve the length and volume that I want. But definitely will use this mascara again, great for everyday look! Will recommend!

I love that this mascara is clean and lightweight. Perfect for those days when you don't want to wear a lot of makeup. It doesn't clump or smudge.

This mascara does not budge! I love it for more natural makeup days! My one complaint is it does not keep my eyelashes super curled
natashag33 from undisclosed
This would be a nice mascara for people new to makeup. It is subtle, doesn't have a ton of volume or length but is very black. I prefer a more dramatic look so it's not for me.
mrsstox from undisclosed
Overall like this for days just working from home to show I have eyelashes. But does move very easy with any type of water, eye drops, rain, etc.

Sometimes you want light mascara with a bare face… this is the product for you! I like having this option in my makeup bag for that look! It removes easily so that's a plus! You can't go wrong with having this mascara!
amaiyacharae from undisclosed
I love that not only is this product vegan and cruelty free but it's also so natural lengthening your eyelashes but still making them look like they're your lashes! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quick and easy everyday mascara.

Love this! This mascara is long lasting. Not too over the top but helps keep the eyelashes fresh yet beautifully long and defined.

As someone who doesn't change mascara often, I was so pleasantly surprised at the volume, lengthening, and curling that this mascara provides! The brush grabs your lashes, and doesn't get clumpy, or give you spider lashes (I actually like spider lashes, but I need a new go to). Easy application as well. Though I could've gone without the curve in the brush, it's still a go getter!

I really wish this mascara was waterproof/water resistant. I prefer it because my eyes get watery easily and regular mascara and eyeliner tends to bleed/get messed up. It's an okay regular mascara; doesn't provide enough volume compared to my current one, but it's decent. I do love that it's clean and vegan and would like to try their water resistant mascara.

Overall this mascara does what its purpose is; lengthen, adds volume, ￼and keep its curl. I could keep up throughout the day however if you do get oily eyes or your eyes tend to water then you can face the common issue of your eyes burning from the make up. I noticed any time I would tear up the mascara with melt into my eyes￼ and cause a stinging sensation. Not great, but this mascara is not waterproof after all.

This mascara is so good! I love how it leaves my lashes so defined with volume and length! The curved mascara brush is amazing!!
