Back in November 2020, CoverGirl launched its first clean mascara, a volumizing formula that’s vegan and cruelty-free and made without ingredients like talc, parabens and phthalates. It became a new favorite and fans begged for a waterproof version. (Seriously, just look at any retail site for the where’s the waterproof?! comment.) That’s why today I’m bringing you a CoverGirl Lash Blast Clean Volume Mascara in Waterproof review—in video, too.

Not only is CoverGirl launching a truly waterproof version of Lash Blast Clean Volume Mascara; the brand also updated the formula. It promises to stay flake-free even longer with zero clumps. It contains argan and marula oils so the formula conditions as it lengthens and volumizes.

Now, when I say it’s waterproof, I mean waterproof—not just smudge-or water-resistant. To me, that means you should be able to soak your face, even jump into a pool, and you won’t come away with raccoon eyes. To put this mascara to the test, I applied a few layers and was pleasantly surprised to see it didn’t clump up at all. I let it dry for a few minutes and then sprayed myself in the face with water. Yes, I soaked my face as much as I could while standing in my bathroom. You can watch me make a total mess here.

What wasn’t a mess? My mascara. While my lip tint smeared and my concealer melted away, the mascara fully stayed put. There wasn’t even a drop to clean up under my eyes. I was impressed. If you have oily eyes and your mascara often smudges, this could be a really good option to try. I know I’m definitely going to wear it to my next beach day.
