I love the Covergirl Remarkable mascara so much more now than I did years ago. I like the old packaging better b/c the handle was easier to hold. The formula got tweaked a little when they changed the packaging. It's creamier, less dry, & a richer color. I use Black Brown. It's plenty dark enough for me even when I rock a smoky eye. I don't apply it to the lower lashes so I don't know how it'd stay on in that region. I've tried it on lower lashes a few times but wiped it away before leaving the house b/c I didn't like the look. On my top lashes it applies smoothly & gives excellent fullness w/separation w/1 or 2 layers. It hold up well through these hot days we've had & at work. I have a curl to my lashes & the formula enhances it. It claims to be water resistant & washable. I don't care about the water resistant part. It removes easily w/a makeup removing cloth from Clean & Clear or Covergirl Clean. Thanks for improving the formula while keeping the price about $5!

Ok so I have an issue with all mascaras. They smudge where I look like a freak show. Anyhow this one smudges only very little in me. So I'm happy with this. It goes on nicely but you have to rub the brush with Kleenex or against the tube so it won't make ur lashes stick together/clump. I gave it a 4 bc I wish it didn't have parabens. I am very happy with it though.

I wasn't expecting much from this mascara when I picked it up on sale. I have not had the best luck with CG mascaras so I did not expect to like this one. I had previously tried the original Professional mascara (in the blue tube) and was not a fan of it. That said, I do really like the Remarkable mascara. The formula is on the dry side. The brush is a spool but it does a great job of separating the lashes and giving them a fluttery effect. While the effect is not overly dramatic, it coats the lashes well in one coat and I bet it could easily be built up. I tend to like more natural looking mascaras so one coat is perfect for me. True to it's name it also washes off easily. I haven't experienced any smudging and it flakes only a tiny amount me, which is why I gave it a four rating. I haven't tested the waterproof aspect but like I said it doesn't smudge so that's good sign. It also doesn't dry out my lashes, or make them fall out like some other CG mascaras. I might actually repurchase this one, provided the formula hasn't changed (I know it was just repackaged). A good work horse product.

Yep, I'm a fan. I usually use CG LB Clump Crusher waterproof but didn't love the effort I had to make to remove it at night. I'm a fair skinned redhead with blonde lashes and brows. I have really good luck with Cover Girl mascaras as a rule, but the non-waterproof versions of Lash Blast (all of them) would leave just a hint of darkness under my lower lash line. My eyes didn't look like full on raccoon eyes, but it did make me look really tired. I also have been using Careprost for about 11 weeks now, so my lashes are really long and it sometimes transfers to my upper lid. I decided to try this again because I used to be a fan years ago before I started using the Lash Blast line. When I first applied it, I wasn't impressed because I felt the formula was too wet. Since my lashes are so long, the wet formula would transfer little mascara dots to my upper lid. I kept using it and working with it, and the way that works best for me is to wipe the tip of the wand with a tissue and wave the wand in the air for a few seconds to dry out the formula a bit. It works beautifully! It's very buildable without getting clumpy. I use this at work (dental asst) for a more natural look and build it up when I want my lashes to really be long and thick. This doesn't flake or smudge. It washes off extremely easily (I use either coconut oil or EVOO) with minimal effort, which is important for me. I use the black-brown shade and plan to purchase the black shade for when I want a really dramatic look. I realize this is probably a rather long review, but when I find something that really, really works for me, I feel I have to share it with the world, especially other fair skinned and haired friends who realize the struggle is real when it comes to finding good mascaras :)

Not a fan of CG mascaras I used to like their professional mascara but something changed and it was no longer good.

My major issue with this mascara is the wand. The bristles are so short they only coat the outside of my lashes and not the inside angles. Thus, they get clumpy and look dry. Also, I found it isn't super waterproof. It smudges a little.

I bought this after almost ripping out all my lashes from CG's waterproof LashBlast. I needed something to last me if I went in the pool, but would come off with soap and water. After hearing a blogger recommend it, I found it for $5 and gave it a shot.

It's not a bad mascara. With two coats, you get natural volume and a touch of length. It's not a really thickening mascara either. It wasn't too clumpy though, which I liked.The formula is kinda wet but dries to a nice matte black. However, I definitely prefer my regular washable Miss Manga.

Finally testing this in the pool, it ran horribly. It smeared and clumped and was just gross. I was so disappointed because the concept is great!

Not wanting to waste it, I now use this on my bottom lashes everyday which it works great! It's easy to apply, doesn't look spidery, and removes like washable. It doesn't smear or flake either. I don't recommend it as a waterproof formula at ALL, but I guess if you like a natural look, or are looking for a bottom lash mascara, this is for you! :)

************The new, smaller, tube is definitely a new formula, and it sucks, in comparison. This would be the new review: meh. clumpy. ****************


See above for edit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PROS: Last very long for not being a true waterproof (It's NOT a true waterproof, no matter what the name says). Gives lots of length and volume to my very sparse and short lashes. Very inexpensive. Last very well but still washes off quite easily. One I can just throw on sort of quickly, rather than spending tons of painstaking time applying.


CONS: My lid broke. Don't know if others have had that problem. Not a true waterproof. It's just not (see application tips to fix that). Wouldn't be good for someone who does NOT want volume.


APPLICATION TIPS: Shiseido's primer (even the new one) helps this stay on with WAY less smudging/transfer/flaking. I am a recent convert to using Shiseido's popular curler too. Can cover this with Clarins Double Fix to make it even more "waterproof." I like to put this one on in one coat, sort of. I don't like to do multiple coats. It gets more clumpy. I also like to dab the brush off on paper towel, etc., before using and then not be afraid to really drag it through my lashes, pushing through them, sort of. In other words, using a light, feathery touch doesn't work great for me with this.


ALTERNATES: L'Oreal Telescopic - NOT the "shocking" version is great for length. OR The Rocket Volum Express, Waterproof (or some name like that) is good for volume and lots of length. For lots of volume and good length, I like Jordana's extreme volumizing or Milani's Runway Lashes. (but I have to cover the Milani with Clarins Double Fix.)

I used to love CoverGirl Professional mascara as a teenager : cheaper and much more gentle on my eyes than Maybelline Great Lash, and easier on the wallet! Those blue tubes were a staple for a long time until I could afford a more "grown up" mascara. Now I've been thinking lately that $25 for something you are going to throw out in 3 months is getting more than pricey , so, I've come back to the Drugstore for my beloved CoverGirl Professional. Sadly this one is not it. Color was nice (brown/black) and went on fine (I only want color really, my lashes are okay by themselves just grey now), but it flaked under and in my eyes all day. Total fail, even Great Lash is less irritating than this formula.

For me, this mascara give my lashes the same effect as lashblast volume. So therefore, I purchase this mascara since it is significantly more affordable and much more easier to apply than not only lashblast volume, but the whole lashblast collection (including clumpcrusher). The formula is perfectly thick and consistent which is what I mostly love while the fact that it's also flake free is what I adore! It's packaging is also favored by me over the lashblast collection. The thin n slime tube is much more easier to stash in a pocket or purse. Don't get me wrong. Lashblast is cool, however, this takes the place as my Holy Grail mascara hands down!
