I received a Target ecard for $10, and wanted to purchase items for myself, as I so often buy things for the house. One item I decided on was CoverGirl Professional Remarkable Mascara. The color I went for is #200 Very Black. The price was $5.99 plus S. & H.
I have dozens of mascaras but I wanted this one as it is a washable, waterproof mascara.
After taking it out of the packaging, it is a nice fat mascara. It contains 9 ml (.3 fluid ounces). The color of the product is a rose/purple, with a silver band and silver colored writing.
I applied one of my Estee Lauder mascaras to my left eye, and it darkened the lashes, and made them a little longer, and slightly more volume. Then I got my new CoverGirl Professional Remarkable Mascara, and opened my right eye.
I use upward strokes and applied it to my upper eyelid. I then put my glasses on, and the first thing that hit me, was that this truly is a Very Black. The difference from the 2 mascaras was amazing. Then I looked at the length, and there wasn’t any difference. However, the thickness of my lashes was so improved.
I then did the lower lashes, and loved the darker black, and the fullness, that this mascara gave me.
That first day I went swimming and didn’t put my face under the water, but did get a couple of splashes. My mascara didn’t run.
The following day I used my CoverGirl mascara in the morning, and when it came to getting ready for dancing, in the evening, I didn’t need to add a second coat of mascara. I didn’t have any smudges under my eyes, that some of my other mascaras have, after a day’s wear.
What CoverGirl say about their product:
“The smudge-proof formula resists swipes and smears like never before. What’s remarkable about it? It darkens and defines lashes all day, then washes away, remarkably, with soap and water. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
This mascara compares with one of my Lancome ones that retails at over $30. I am so pleased with it, and have had no problems with panda eyes, flaking, etc.

If you haven’t tried CoverGirl Professional Remarkable Washable Waterproof Mascara, and haven’t found the right one for you, then I would suggest you give it a try. I am so happy with it.
