Rated 4.28 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review My favorite mascara
I'm always trying different mascaras and decided to buy this after Cover Girl went cruelty free. Honestly, I was shocked (in a good way) by the results. My lashes are average length and light colored. With this mascara they looked much longer and fuller. It was a super dramatic difference and more impressive than other (more expensive) mascaras I've tried.
Two caveats: You have to be careful when applying to avoid getting it on your eyelids. Also, I wouldn't recommend this for a natural, "no makeup" look, because (in my experience) it makes your lashes look way better than they could in real life!
This mascara is awesome!
Most Helpful Critical Review Great Mascara, Blue one SMELLS TERRIBLE
So I'm not generally a fan of covergirl mascaras because they don't give enough impact...but this one is great! The wand is great, no clumping, and it thickens, lengthens, and adds loads of volume. My only complaint is that the blue one smells so foul! It's like I'm putting death on my eyelashes and it's a huge deterrent! Covergirl, please fix this, I don't understand how it made it to the market with the terrible smell!! Other than that, I look forward to purchasing the black one because I love how it looks. This would be a 4 stars if it weren't for the smell and will be a 5 stars if it doesn't smudge!

Y'all. Get this mascara. I have thin, long, silky, downturned blonde lashes. Not only do they not hold a curl no matter how many different tools and hacks I've tried, they also clump together and no matter how black the mascara is, it never pops with my blonde lashes. I have tried every brand, every wand shape and size, every formula, EVERYTHING, and the best I've ever gotten is "just okay" until this one. I've worn this to hot humid football games in the south. I've worn it to all day outdoor events in peak allergy season. I've cried with this, slept in this, worked out with this, really really put it to the test. It's never flaked, never lost it's curl, and always looked like I just put it on 5 minutes ago. I did read reviews that it's hard to take off - I've never had a problem completely removing it quite easily with Shiseido cleansing oil or a cleansing balm paired with a makeup eraser.
I can't believe I'm saying this about an item of makeup, but it has absolutely changed my life.
Good results but awful smell from the True Blue
Rox93 from Greenwich CT
The product works great... Has a great wand but it's absolutely an unpleasant experience to apply it because of the smell... I put it on and instantly got scared thinking something was wrong with the product? Why does is have such an awful smell? Some feedback would be great
Canitjanet from Evansville, Illinois
I've bought very expensive mascaras but this one is the best for contact users. I buy the wash off mascara. Even when I workout it doesn't run down my face. Love it!!
DLP1961 from Ohio
I usually use a different cover girl mascara but store was out so I tried this kind. It didn't seem to go over very easy. It was flaking off within a short time . Would never buy this one again. So disappointed I thought maybe there was something wrong with this tube and it is not usually this way
BUY IT OMG
AVA from SD
THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST MASCARA I HAVE EVER USED AND I HAVE USED A LOT. this mascara doesn give your lashes that ugly clumpy spider look, it leaves then long and full and omg it lasts FOREVER!!!! BUY IT
disappointed from State college
Just no. I thought this product would be great since I'm in love with the waterproof version. But it absolutely sucks. I just opened mine and the product is already dry and made my lashes look disgusting. I curled them and when I put on the product on it immediately made them straight ugh! Don't recommend

my absolute FAVORITE mascara, coming from somebody who is impossibly picky about mascara. it adds volume AND length, and the curl lasts all day, so my naturally straight/stubby lashes look beautiful. I feel so confident wearing this mascara, I have repurchased and will continue to repurchase. A spot-on dupe for Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, AND cruelty free, as opposed to other infamous BTS dupe, Loreal Lash Paradise.
Jillkimberley from Amarillo, Texas
THANK GOODNESS I decided to try this out before taking it with me on a trip. It is truly waterproof, no need to worry about it running or wearing off.
The problem is getting it off.
I tried makeup remover, micellar water, coconut oil, and scrubbing with makeup removing soap. The ONLY thing that I've found that can remove this mascara is PONDS COLD CREAM. So grateful I had some or I know I would have had this mascara on forever. Don't apply unless you have Ponds to remove with!

LOVE this mascara! I would buy this over and over, no exaggeration. It does the job and has great volume. You can definitely see the difference after a few small strokes. Definitely would recommend you all to try this if you haven't already!

I love this mascara so much it gives your eyelashes so much volume it dose not smudge it's so nice I love this product so much.￼￼
ashleyc22 from undisclosed
This was a really fantastic mascara. This gave me the volume I was looking for as well as a great curl. I could layer this product with very little clumping which is always a bonus. It was easy to remove as well! I would repurchase this.
meggie52804 from undisclosed
This is the only mascara I use. I love it! It's the in between. It gives good length and definition without looking completely fake or being heavy. Plus it's not clumpy at all. I've had that issue with other cheap mascaras. Great deal!!
k from nc
it's fine and does the job but it doesn't hold a curl and is very wet, so it's gets on my eyelids when i put it on
Dodgers from Michigan
I am so glad I seen someone review this on YouTube a couple of years ago...ITS THE BEST!! I've spent countless dollars on countless different high end mascaras ,I have used Thrive,Too Faced Better Then S*x ,Lancome,Grande, It Cosmetics,Tarte. This is a really good dark almost carbon black and it lengthens and curls, volumizes my lashes so good. They even seem like they are growing like crazy...maybe it's just me or maybe because I noticed I haven't lost one lash while wearing this mascara,one coat is all you need.Formula is creamy and glides on with the famous hourglass shape wand. Does not flake and okay for contact lenses wearers.
elisw from undisclosed
This mascara is light weight and affordable! I use this for casual days around the house or trips to the store when I don't want to wear a lot of makeup and it does the job just fine! Lasts all day and washes off easily. Would definitely buy again!
Not as good as I expected
Marguerite from Washington
Very thin formula hardly coated my lashes. Waterproof is valid but brush sucks. Not like L'Oréal lash paradise or better than sex by too faced. Don't purchase. No effect at all.

I love this mascara!! The waterproof version is my favorite, it holds the shape and doesn't weigh down your lashes. I get compliments everyday when I wear this! I don't need to spend a lot to look great!
maggic from undisclosed
I love this formula so much! My lashes always look fluttery, full, and whispie when I use this mascara. It does not smudge even with oily skin, and the tube only gets better with age.
I really look this...
janiyahneshell from undisclosed
I really look this mascara! It's not clumpy and I'm always getting compliments on my lashes and recommending it to others
Name does not suit the product, for sure!
Beachanddogs from NY
I use several of your products daily, and love those. However, I am very disappointed with this product. No clumping...? Just pulling the wand from the tube left one huge clump on the wand and I had to pull the wand through a tissue to be able to think about being able to put it near my eye. It got no better...I had to do this with every use. The actual product did not distribute throughout the wand evenly, applying too much mascara to the center and not on either side. And last, the curved wand made it difficult to pick up the sides. I would like to explain that I'm getting older and my makeup needs have changed so I am looking for products that can give me a fresh and natural look. I do have nice lashes, and no longer use liner so I like the look of less makeup with "exhibitionist" lashes. This was not the right product to achieve that, but also..the clumping as it leaves the tube was mascara-egregious. While I would not hesitate to recommend Outlast or your wonderful concealer, I would NOT recommend this product at all.
kathleenb1 from undisclosed
Goes on easy and really makes my eyes pop! The wand is shaped to really help define and thicken lashes. I have other products that clump or cause my lashes to stick together but this product does not. I have blue eyes and brown hair and the black looks great!
Waterproof? I don't think so
Natasha from Chicago, IL
I bought this hoping to find a cheaper and more convenient replacement to my go-to waterproof mascara. What a waste. The first time I used it, I arrived at my destination about an hour later, just happened to look in a mirror and found it smudged all under my eyes. Thank goodness I was only going to my mom's house and not an interview or something. Going back to my Clinique. That stuff is bulletproof.
Terri876 from undisclosed
I brought this product and loved it but was not able to sharpen it. I feel there should have made it easy for a great product
An ok mascara but takes time to build up
abuns_beauty from undisclosed
I honestly hated it at first, too wet and hard to apply without smudging. The shape of the wand did not do much for me. After a couple of days having it open it got better but the wand picks up so much product that I have to Swipe it on the tube several times before applying. Had no issues with smudging while wearing it, did not flake or was hard to remove at the end of the day. Just did wow me with how my lashes looked, they were very natural. Maybe it just wasn't for me.
Mascara that won't run!!
Heidi from Blackwood, NJ
It's a good waterproof mascara - I would recommend coating the lashes twice and letting them dry a little bit in between coats
