Review: Cover Girl Professional Remarkable Washable Waterproof Mascara

Cover Girl Professional Remarkable Washable Waterproof Mascara

I was on the hunt for the perfect, smudge-proof, long-lasting mascara specifically for my bottom lashes. I know, why don’t I just use my normal mascaras that I apply onto my top lashes for that? Well, I am very picky when it comes to mascaras. I hate any type of smudging or flaking so I usually always use another mascara for my bottom lashes. I had been using the Loreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara but it finally dried up. That mascara is probably my favorite for my bottom lashes because it does not budge at all. It’s actually kind of a pain to remove because of how well it stays on! Anyways, I wanted something cheaper and heard that this mascara is actually great for bottom lashes.

Cover Girl Professional Remarkable Washable Waterproof Mascara – “COVERGIRL’s smudge-proof formula resists swipes and smears. What’s remarkable about it? It darkens and defines lashes all day, then washes away, remarkably, with soap and water. Waterproof, yet washes off with soap and water. Suitable for contact wearers and Sensitive eyes. Smudge-proof.”

This mascara isn’t one that you hear about on blogs and Youtube videos. I found this mascara on the very bottom of the Cover Girl mascara display. However, many great mascaras, including Maybelline Full ‘N Soft and Rimmel Scandal Eyes Lycra Flex Mascara, don’t get much hype because of all the newer mascaras that come out which seems to be every week (Miss Manga, Butterfly, Bombshell). Don’t hesitate to look on the bottom of mascara displays because there are some great finds! Anyways, this mascara is the epitome of plain Jane. It comes in a solid purple tube and the wand looks like your typical, fiber bristle mascara wand. It is in between a wet and dry formula, leaning more towards dry which I find perfect for the bottom lashes.

I really enjoy using this mascara solely on my bottom lashes. It does not add much volume or length so this would make for a great everyday, no-hassle mascara when you are in a rush and don’t want to spend too much time creating full lashes. It does not smudge nor flake throughout the day for the most part, but it is a little difficult to apply without getting at least a small smudge or two on the lower lash line, but you can simply wait for it to dry and clean it up with a q-tip. I found maybe two or three tiny flecks of mascara under my eyes by the end of the day so it doesn’t have the best lasting-power, however, it is smudge-proof. I also didn’t find this to be the best waterproof mascara, but it isn’t awful either. I actually love how easy this is to remove at the end of the day! I don’t have to use waterproof eye makeup remover to get every last bit of mascara off.

I definitely still recommend Loreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara for the bottom lashes simply because it doesn’t smudge nor flake even 12 hours later. It lasts all day and actually stays put. However, Cover Girl Professional Remarkable Mascara is a great cheaper alternative so I would definitely recommend checking this out!
