I was very surprised with this product.  Large brush that curls your lashes as you  use the product.  During the day about 2 swipes makes a natural looking eye.   The for evening add another 2-3 swipes to thicken it up.

I use Revlon makeup remover towels to clean my face before bed.  So no trouble there.  Amazing that swimming, even a quick shower doesn't destroy the lashes. * I  have washed off eye shadow but the mascara lives on.*

I recently went on vacation to [Catalina Island][1] and knew I would be participating in water activites, so I went out and bought my first waterproof mascara: **CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara.  **Since I had never used a waterproof mascara before, I chose one that I love in it's regular, non-waterproof version.  I had great results with the regular LashExact mascara, so I expected the same with this one, but didn't get it.

Just like the regular version, the **CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara **goes on nicely and clump-free.  It defines and separates your lashes very well and doesn't flake.  I have absolutely no complaints about this mascara...until you get it wet.

Since I was trying to pack lightly for my vacation, I only brought the one mascara with me.  I didn't feel like bringing a regular *and *a waterproof mascara with me so I wore the **CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara **even when I wasn't going to get wet.  On the days that I didn't get wet, just took a shower, the mascara held it's own very nicely.  It didn't run on my face when I got out of the shower, but it *was *difficult to take off.  On a day when I went in the ocean on a wave runner, I came back to my hotel to examine my lashes.  The mascara disappeared!  I had absolutely no trace of mascara on my lashes.  If it wouldn't come off from a shower, I don't know how it magically disappeared while out playing on a wave runner.

**The Scoop!**

If you are looking for a waterproof mascara for a wedding, funeral or another type of teary event, I *would *recommend this product.  However, if you are looking for a mascara to hold up to water sport activities, I say don't bother.  To read my review for the regular CoverGirl LashExact Mascara [click here][2] .

Not bad.

By 

from Kansas

Comments about CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara:

CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara is a fairly good mascara. It is good for separating your eye lashes and making them stand out. It can be found at just about any store for a reasonable price.

This mascara brush has very fine bristles, which make it great for coating every lash. Because of the brush design, even your tiniest lashes are covered. I usually put two coats on and my lashes look great. It does not cause there to be any dramatic appearance with your lashes but it is good for daytime. The mascara stays put and does not flake at all. I remove it just fine with my makeup remover but it will stay put in water.

I suggest this mascara. It is simple and does what it says.

Performance
This mascara performs well. It is not going to give you a dramatic look but it is great for daytime wear. It stays put throughout the day but can easily be removed with makeup remover.

Ease of Application
Very easy to apply and you usually only need two coats.

CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara. A great product!

By 

from Austin, Tx

Comments about CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara:

I love this waterproof mascara as it is currently my favorite over other brands. This brand and type I really like a lot. It does a good job at thickening and lengthening my natural lashes to give them a beautiful full look without clumping them up. I wish though that the wand wasn't so long because I sometimes have to extend my arm out far while applying but it's not too much of an inconvenience and performs great. It's a good mascara at an affordable price.

Performance
Performs wonderful. This mascara surpasses my expectations of what a good waterproof mascara should be. It's brush is bristled thin with spaces in between and allows for easy application to the eyelashes. The mascara itself is strong enough to build thickness without causing clumping which I love because let's face it, no one wants scary, spider web looking eye's. This mascara does not run if my eye's get wet and is friendly when wearing contact lenses.

Ease of Application
It's very easy to apply. After using a coat or two, I like to let my lashes dry and then curl them with an eyelash curler but of course that's optional and they look just as good without. When it comes to removing the mascara from my lashes, I try to be gentle and always apply makeup remover so that I won't accidentally rip them out. I find its the most effective way to remove any mascara in general.

CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara

By 

from USA

Comments about CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara:

CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara has been my go-to for YEARS now! Sadly, I was not blessed with thick, luxurious lashes so the best mascara for me has proven to be the mascaras with the teeny, tiny application wand. I have found that this mascara has the best application wand on the market for anyone with sparse lashes. Because of the small wand, I find that I need to apply several coats to get the desired length and volume, but I find that a solid trade-off considering I don't have to remove any little mascara "foot prints" from my lids or from under my eye. In my experience, the waterproof factor in CoverGirl LashExact Mascara has been equal to or better than any other brand I have tried. It can hold up to a good cry or a sweaty summer day. CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara is my #1 go-to mascara, hands down.

Performance
CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara gets all the tiny little lashes that other mascaras miss. The waterproof aspect is as good, or equal to any other mascara on the market.

Ease of Application
My only complain with CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara is that, because of the tiny brush, you generally need to apply more than one coat to get the desired effect. This is acceptable to me because I love the fact that I don't leave mascara tracks on my lids because of an over-sized, gloppy mascara wand.

Perfect for summer or outdoors.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara:

I think the cover girl lash exact waterproof mascara is the perfect mascara for outdoors, especially the summer. It will last through water and sweat. It does not look clumpy. Your eye lashes will not look huge, they will just make your natural lashes look more emphasized. Perfect for a more natural look.

"PERFECT" mascara!

By 

from Shepherdsville, KY

Comments about CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara:

This mascara held up to its name when needed most. It left my lashes looking perfect after application, and after hours of tears, there was no "raccoon eyes". I love the brush, the way it combs through my lashes leaving them perfectly placed without any clumps. My eyelashes were exactly perfect when I applied this mascara, and they were still exact after hours of wear and tears! This mascara was a last minute purchase due to my forgetting my usual brand, and Cover Girl has gained my respect! Heading to watch a "tear-jerker" in the theater, I applied this mascara clearly not thinking about it running down my face later, and was so very pleased when the actual thought entered my mind, that the fact was.. It stayed put!! I am now a fan of the pretty purple tube of mascara that has found a spot in my make-up bag. I will continue to be a fan of cover girl and am now the proud user of this great new mascara for years to come!

Cover Girl Last Exact is great

By 

from Bloomington, CA

Comments about CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara:

This is probably my favorite covergirl mascara of them all, other than the red tubed Fantastic lash. When I first used this mascara, I thought it did an amazing job at seperating and defining each of my lashes. The brush is perfect for defining even the smallest lashes and lower lashes really well. I find that the waterproof formula holds my curls a lot more than the regular formula, though it is a pain to take off, it does come off with makeup remover. It does do a great job at lengthening, however you really get no volume at all. This mascara is probably the one that started them all because this purple tube with the defined wand is perfect for having a really clean and natural look without the clumpyness or smudgey mess of other mascaras. This is a great mascara for those that want natural looking lashes with just more defintion. The color is also really great, I usually would go for a more normal brown color, but black looks really nice in making your lashes seem fuller, especially since this mascara is more on the defining side rather then voluminous side.

Lash exact mascara is exactly right!

By 

from Sedalia, MO

Comments about CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara:

Cover Girl Lash Exact Waterproof Mascara is the best out there in my humble opinion. I have tried various other drugstore mascaras and in the end I always end up coming back to this wonderful little purple tube. One of the things I like best about the lash exact mascara is that it never puts clumps onto my lashes. This is a fantastic plus. Another great feature of this awesome mascara is the great brush that swipes on the mascara. It works perfectly getting the really small lashes close to the corner of my eye and my tear duct. It gives them just enough definition without looking unnatural or overly "made-up." The waterproof formula is also excellent. I never have to worry about my mascara running or coming off until I am ready to remove it at night. This is a stark contrast to other mascaras that would frequently run or be horribly clumpy to the point they looked very unnatural and very unbecoming (namely Neutogena's Healthy Lengths, more like Healthy "Clumps!") Covergirl got this formula exactly right and I hope they keep it on the market a long time!

Cover Girl Lash Exact is average.

By 

from Apollo Beach, FL

Comments about CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara:

Cover Girl Lash Exact is not too bad for such a cheap drugstore mascara. First of all, it does clump a little, which is the first thing i look for in a mascara. It coats my lashes and adds a bit of volume to them. What I really did not like though, was that it did not lengthen and it does nothing at holding curls. It is also a little smudgy in humid weather.  Only one coat does nothing for me.  It is really easy to use, and manages to reach all corners of the eyes. It gives a pretty natural effect.  However, I was definitely not impressed with the dryness of the mascara formula. It is also difficult to get off your lashes. I use an oil based eye-make up remover, but I still had to pull and tug at my lashes in order for the mascara to come off.  Inevitably, that involved a few of my natural lashes being pulled off as well.  I suppose there is nothing to complain about given the price. However, i prefer mascara formulas that aren't so hard to remove, and that give a more bling effect.

Does the job!

By 

from York, PA

Comments about CoverGirl LashExact Waterproof Mascara:

I bought this mascara because it was on sale at my local grocery store and I had a coupon to pair with the sale. I had never used Cover girl mascara before so I really wasn't sure what to expect. Surprisingly I love it. For the price the mascara really works like a more expensive, brand name product. I didn't have any problems with the mascara running or smudging. It wasn't clumpy or too thick either. It didn't rub off or wear off throughout the day. It made my lashes look great too. In the shower I just used a bit of soap and water and it was pretty easily removed. Overall, for the low price the quality of this product was certainly desirable and it is a product I will look to purchase again in the future.
