Unlike the original version of Clump Crusher, the water-resistant formula is wonderful! True to its name, this doesn't clump, but it also won't smear or flake, and stays on perfectly if lashes get wet. This isn't quite as robust as a waterproof mascara, so we wouldn't' advise wearing it for a long swim, but getting caught in the rain is no problem.

The slightly curved, rubber bristle brush deposits mascara evenly, allowing you to build length and thickness in fairly equal measure. This isn't the mascara to choose if you want a super-dramatic false eyelash effect, but it definitely adds worry-free oomph and doesn't require a lot of effort to remove. We found this came off quite well with a cleansing lotion! Well done.

Pros:
  • Lengthens and thickens lashes easily.
  • Doesn't clump, flake, or smear.
  • Easier to remove than most water-resistant (and definitely most waterproof) mascaras.
Cons:
  • None.
More Info:

None, unless you're going for super-dramatic lashes.

Since 1961, CoverGirl has been slowly building a portfolio of cosmetics that today is about as all-encompassing as a makeup line can be. Originating from the same "medicated" ingredients found in Noxzema Skin Cream (which was never medicated in the least, but seriously irritating for skin), the debut products are still available, albeit with slight modifications. The good news is that for the past several years CoverGirl has consistently updated their line with some very impressive products, especially their foundations, concealers, and vastly improved pressed powders. They also offer some excellent eye and lip pencils, lipsticks and lip gloss, and one of the all-time best long-wearing lip paints, Outlast.

What's puzzling is that although many of CoverGirl's latest products are progressive, they tend to hang on to the lackluster-to-poor options, including abysmal powder blush and eyeshadows and their long-standing, very irritating Clean Makeup. These items may be part of CoverGirl's humble beginnings, but you certainly don't see parent company Proctor & Gamble adding eucalyptus oil and menthol to their Olay products or to products of any of the other cosmetics companies they own. If those ingredients were so important, why not use them everywhere? Needless to say, the great products outnumber the disappointments, and the prices make it easy for those on a budget to be beautiful and enjoy some state-of-the-art products, provided they shop wisely.

CoverGirl's Web site is extremely easy to navigate, and presents a wealth of product information, along with practical (if somewhat cutesy) tips and tricks for successful makeup application and for finding the shades that work best for you. CoverGirl's consumer relations department is consistently helpful if you have any questions or concerns. For example, if one of your favorite items was discontinued, you might want to know what replaced it, and they will let you know. Such service and customer concern is yet another powerful reason to believe CoverGirl really has its (class) act together.

    Good formula,terrible brush
    • The formula goes on well, dries fast, and lasts pretty well.......but the brush is awful. It's rubber, with short, sparse bristles which don't get to all lashes, much less to the bases of each lash. I use the brush from an old tube of MAC Zoom Lash. I get a little smudging by the end of the day, but not as bad as a lot of other mascaras.

    Flaked for me
    • The two things I look for in a mascara are goes on fast and stays on my eyelashes rather flaking all over my under eyes. I was hoping water resistant would be a good compromise but this was all over my under eyes within two hours of putting it on. It's going back to the store.
