Not truly waterproof!

I am a mascara fanatic and love to try all different kinds of mascara. This one didn’t work for me. It is NOT truly waterproof. A little too much crying or getting the lashes wet, and the mascara starts to come off. If you want an excellent, truly waterproof mascara, try Loreal Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof or Covergirl Professional All in One Waterproof Mascara.

truly waterproof and washable!

i have used this mascara for about 10 years and can’t find it in my local big box anymore. I have super sensitive eyes that burn,sting, tear and turn red easily. This mascara never runs and i can wash it completely off with Dove soap. I now buy it in packs of 3 to make sure i have it around!

Great mascara so far!

I have been on a quest to find a mascara that works really well for me. I have tried MANY different kinds, from products that used to work well for me (e.g., Maybelline Full and Soft Washable Mascara Brownish Black–now I find that this hardly shows on my lashes AND that the tube dries out too quickly) to newer products (such asMaybelline New York Volum’ Express Falsies Flared Waterproof Mascara, Very Black 295, 0.31-fluid Ounce–not bad overall, but the formula was very wet, and too much of the product came out on the wand, making very clumpy).More recently, I read about Cover Girl Professional. I liked the idea of a washable waterproof mascara–I prefer to have at least one waterproof mascara on hand for when I wear contacts, but I hate using eye makeover remover and/or struggling to get the product off my lashes. I found this product on sale, so I tried to give it a try, purchasing the “Brownish Black” version (it also comes in black, but I tend to think that looks too harsh with my brown eyes and medium-dark brown hair).When I opened up the mascara to try it, the first thing I was impressed with was the brush. Many of today’s newer mascara’s have fancy, complicated brushes; this one is simple yet well-designed. The thing I like best about it is that when you pull it out of the tube, it wipes off a sufficient amount of product (this is one of my mascara pet peeves!) so that you don’t have to waste product by wiping off excess with a tissue (why would I want to waste money that way?). Furthermore, it means that you get an excellent, clump-free application!This mascara worked extremely well for my short, stumpy lashes. It builds quite a bit of length without giving that “spidery” look. I also found that I could apply several coats–with or without drying in-between–and build the product up even further for a more dramatic look. The focus is definitely more on length than volume; that worked fine for me, but someone searching more for the latter might be a bit disappointed. So far, I haven’t had any problems with this mascara running or smudging (although I haven’t given the waterproof aspect a full test by swimming or anything like that), and it truly DOES wash off easily with soap and water, which I love.Unless I happen to chance upon something better, this product has definitely become my #1, go-to mascara. I will be re-purchasing, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it!

It’s just ok, not waterproof as it says

So i bought this pack of three, cause i thought the price was cheap, and it said the mascara was waterproof, then i got it, and well.. its just ok, it’s not waterproof at all, i mean, it doesnt run down your face during the day, but the point of being waterproof is that u can use it while u are on a pool, beach.. right? well, dont count on this mascara for those activities, also i think the formula is too heavy. Im giving it three stars only because it was really cheap and it does a “ok” job for a daily mascara.

Waterproof, but washes off easily

I recently needed to purchase some waterproof mascara to wear to a funeral, and saw that this had positive reviews on a beauty forum. It really is a nice mascara! While it doesn’t make my lashes quite as thick as my go-to mascara (Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash), it creates nice length and volume, and really stays put, even through quite a few tears. Unlike other waterproof mascaras I’ve tried in the past, it is also very easy to remove, and comes right off with my Clinique or Sonia Kashuk eye makeup remover. I really like this mascara, and will definitely re-purchase it when I work my way through all three tubes.

Pretty good

This is a great natural looking clump free mascara. It stays on throughout the day at my job in an extremely hot kitchen where I sweat a lot. I did wear it swimming and it came off when I rubbed my eyes, though it did not run down my face. I have used other waterproof mascaras while swimming and they stay on the lashes even if I touch them. I guess that’s where the “washable” part comes in, which is very true. It is easily washed away with soap and water and does not damage or pull the lashes out when you wash your eye makeup off.

1. Personally I don’t like the density of the brush. Too much product gets onto it but isn’t applied to the lashes well. Doesn’t build a lot of volume. Isn’t going to be my go to mascara.2. Waterproof, but washes off easily….kinda. The first time I wore it I had to use eye make up remover first, washed after, and still had mascara on. So with a little labor and scrubbing with additional remover it eventually came off.3. Price, for the product is fair.4. Shipping, very quick.
