The drugstore mascara that works just as hard as you do

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this long-lasting mascara

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / February 24 2020

The product

When it comes to mascara, you want something that works just as hard as you do and isn’t going to flake out on you by lunchtime.

COVERGIRL Exhibitionist Mascara is an impressive drugstore find that fits the bill. It has a hardwearing, smudge-proof, clump-proof and flake-proof formula that promises to lengthen, volumise and define lashes. This little guy is going to be your reliable new best friend. 

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this mascara to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent COVERGIRL Exhibitionist Mascara to a panel of women aged between 18 and 54 who wanted a long-lasting mascara for daily wear.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about COVERGIRL Exhibitionist Mascara.

How it didn’t budge throughout the day: Review Crew® members loved the fact that, despite their busy lifestyles, the mascara didn’t flake or smudge. 

The ‘everyday’ lash look they were able to achieve: Members found that the mascara struck the perfect balance between a more natural lash look and voluminous, lengthened lashes – making it their go-to for work days.

The mascara brush: Reviewers really liked the curved mascara brush that helped to define and coat each lash, creating thick, voluminous lashes. 

Good to know: Our members felt the formula was better suited to lengthening and volumising, rather than creating a curled lash look.

The verdict

“Happy peepers! What a beautiful daily wear mascara. No smudging, flaking or crumbling and has survived a week-long back to back meeting hellish week!!! Fabulous price point too.”

“Covergirl Exhibitionist mascara is a gem. This mascara delivers what it promises at a good price point. I have worn this mascara for two weeks, daily wear, including at the gym, it does not flake or smudge, even after a workout.”

“What I love about this mascara is the fact that it doesn't smudge and cause panda eyes, which I find so many mascaras do. You can even safely use this on the bottom lashes without smudges. It creates volume and length with a matte black finish but it’s natural enough for everyday wear too. Plus, no clumps!”
