Love this mascara ! The brush is a great size and it's very easy to apply onto my fairly long lashes. Unlike some other people I don't apply multiple layers, I just apply it until most of my lashes appear covered and I'm ready to go. I find that it doesn't clump at all and it doesn't dry awkwardly either. It holds curl and is certainly waterproof.

I find this my HG, but it does have its flaws. The color's amazing, it lasts ALL day, keeps my curl for forever, and it makes my lashes look absolutely FLAWLESS...before the hours start ticking. After a few hours, it started to clump together and it gives a dry, crispy feeling (I do one quick swipe for application and barely do any layers). It makes my lashes brittle, but that's what happens when you get waterproof. It's extremely hard to take off, but at least it's reassuring that it lasts all day. The brush is quite large and since my eyelid space is pretty small, it gets everywhere if I don't use a card. It's also hard to get the inner, outer or bottom lashes. Either way, I'd recommend this product if you have a good makeup remover (extra virgin olive oil is good and inexpensive!), strong lashes (or a good lash serum), or just need a mascara you can count on.

Hey guys! :D So I got this mascara recently because of all the Original Lashblast raves for about $7(ish if I'm not mistaken) & honestly there are the ups and downs to this product...

- Not the blackest black mascara but it is pretty black (that is sort of how I like it)
- Honestly it actually defines all of my asian lashes ( which i like)
- Doesn't clump for the first THOROUGH layer
- Keeps my lashes curl
- Easy to separate my lashes using a spooly and makes my lashes flutered and natural
- Dries off pretty fast
- Quite easy to remove (way easier than Maybelline's Falsies)
- Actually is waterproof! (not like some waterproof mascara that isn't actually waterproof)
- Doesn't flake off easily
- The brush really grabs on to each lashes

- Start to clump after 2 to 3 layers
- Feels really dry and irritating after 6+ hours of use
- Since the brush is really huge, it does get a bit hard to reach the ends of my lashes without getting the mascara on to my lid

So honestly this product isn't that bad, I will repurchase this just because the brush is really good and the formula IS ACTUALLY WATERPROOF (and also removes quite easily). And although it's not really a 'volumizing' mascara for me, but it is more to a lengthening mascara and I really like the huge and natural difference it gives to my lashes :D

One of my first few mascaras. I am mixed about this mascara. This mascara gives a lot of volume, and does not smudge or come off in water. Which is what I love about it. Unfortunately though, it is almost impossible to take off. If you have no makeup removal, don't buy this. Your mascara will stay on for days on end. If you try to take it off with your fingers or whatever, many lashes will fall off yours eyes.

Generally though, even with makeup removers this mascara is still very difficult to remove. Usually I lose at least three or two eyelashes when I remove this mascara. Regardless of this though, it is something I always turn to when I go swimming or on a long hot day out.

I am very mixed. If you have great makeup removers, go for it. But I wouldn't suggest wearing this daily, or your lashes will go from short to gone!

I picked this up because my local drugstore didn't have my HG mascara In stock (maybelline WP full n soft mascara). I do not care for this mascara. I think I would've been better off grabbing another maybelline mascara. This product holds a curl well but it does nothing to volumize lashes. It separates and maybe lengthens a little but I find that layering makes my lashes look spidery. Plus another con is that this mascara is sooooo difficult to remove. Would not repurchase.

This mascara holds the curl really well and it does volume my lashes. However, it doesn't lengthen them and it's sooo difficult to remove. Don't buy this if you have sensitive eyelids.

I actually wanted to try the regular non-waterproof version but I got this one :( We don't have Cover girl here in the Netherlands so I had to ask a friend to buy it for me in the US. Male friend, so of course he got the wrong one :) Anyway, it doesn't work for me. My lashes are short and I am looking for length and volume but this mascara doesn't give me any of that. Even with my Dior lash primer which I use to give my pitiful lashes some boost. I get spiky short though defined lashes. And of course I had to invest into a remover that can remove it, since I normally don't use waterproof mascaras. Really sad that it didn't work for me :(

Flakes off after 1 hour. At least it did for me. Found my mascara under my eyes in no time. Not a good look and never buying again. Total waste of money.

I have medium length lashes that are stick straight. This mascara did not impress. It did not length my lashes nor make them look fuller. And it did not hold my curl. And it clumped : ( I get better results with natural mascaras like Full n Soft.

A decent waterproof mascara and my current go to. It does have it's flaws though. The mascara does smudge a little (not too horribly) on my lower lash line, but it's nothing that a cotton swab can't fix. Holding my curl is great and volume is also great. Length isn't too bad, but I could definitely use more of that for my straight Asian eyelashes.
