Mascara Monday: CoverGirl Lash Exact

Happy Monday, pretty people! I hope that you all had wonderful weekends. Between checkin’ out Tyler Perry’s newest movie, shoppin’ at Ikea (OMG, I loooove that place), studying for the GRE and workin’ out, I was able to stay pretty busy. And I doubt I will ever love Mondays except for no other reason that Mascara Mondays. Yessss!!! Check out what we have this week.

CoverGirl’s Lash Exact Mascara

Price: 3.5 out of 5
Packaging (Brush Wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 3.5 out of 5

What it claims: “No clumps on the brush means no clumps on the lashes for a DEFINED and LONG lash look.”

The truth: Hmm, it’s not bad. I didn’t get any clumps so it stands up against its claim!

What I loved about it: I really like the brush….but then again, I’m becoming a fan to the 3D wand since I’m learned how to use it efficiently.

What I didn’t like: Ummm, I would have liked if it gave me a little bit of curl. But I got nada. And even after I pumped the lashes with an eyelash curler a few times it was still didn’t a hold a “decent” curl.

Overall: I know this mascara isn’t new. It was reader requested by a lovely reader. Hey Claire! CoverGirl has since released LashBlast so LashExact is a bit on the “throwback” tip. But can I say something? Um….the wand, beautiful! You all know that I am a sucker for packaging so it was pleasant to have this baby girl in the mascara stash. As far as performance, hmm….it’s okay. I was able to achieve a good amount of volume. Length was pretty decent too. I didn’t get much of the flaky-flaky and was impressed with how well it stood up all day. Snagged this baby for about $7. Not too shabby.

Would I recommend it: Hmmmm….if you have something decent, stick with it. If you want to purchase this mascara just for experimental purposes, go for it. Otherwise….I say let it slide.

    i was introduced to mascara with this and it was one of my faves.. i loved the length and definition it gave my lashes. it’s a great match/combo for a volumizing mascara!

  • Fashion’s Darling

    I feel the same way. If it weren’t for the purple tube I’d prob let it go lol

  • Danyelle

    I agree, this mascara just doesn’t do it for me. LashBlast has upstaged it for sure. BTW…I like your hair!!! 😉 xoxo

    I’ve never tried any CoverGirl mascara, but since they’re typically inexpensive I just might give it a try.

  • SuzieC

    This was and still is one of my faves! It gave fabulous results.

  • Product Junkie Diva

    I have this mascara and I think it is cool, it isn’t life changing but for me it works. I like that I don’t get that clumpy mess that goes along with some of the other mascaras.
    Happy Monday.

    I love this one. It gives me incredible length so when I want long lashes I reach for this and when I want more volume (not necessarily length) I reach for my Lashblast. Definitely a fav and I’ve repurchased a few times over.

  • Tammy M

    I really think you are rocking the short hair! I am not a huge fan of CG mascaras…for drugstore mascaras I tend to go for Loreal…

  • Askmewhats

    I have tried the tester and you’re right, its nothing bad but nothing great too! thanks for this!

  • The Home Spa Goddess

    Not impressed with this one. It’s one of the ones I threw out when I cleaned out my mascara stash.

  • slvrlips

    This was my first experimental mascara purchases and I must say I liked it but for some reason didn’t rebuy it. I do like the 3d wand and its ablity to volumize w/o the clumps. Great review
