    Learn how to appy before you object

    Black Ruby, as the color name implies, is dark. Though the common association with 'raisin' colors tends to be much brighter and redder than an actual raisin, this one is rather more like the violet black you see in real raisins and eggplants. If it were any paler, lighter, or brighter, it would only hold up to the pastels and vanish in most liners. That said, it's colored and lightly frosted(on...read morely lightly so it holds it's own against shadow and liner). To get the most out of any color, scrape off excess product, apply to the back of lashes first, comb well with a clean lash comb, wipe comb, then layer the front of the lashes, combing and wiping often. The waterproof works for me just fine with any of my red-based shadows and liners and amps the greens just fine. It also stands alone just fine if you don't need length and volume, and I don't recall that being a promise on the package. My only objection is the color sticker is misleading, though many companies are at fault for the same thing. — 1 year, 2 months ago

    I LOVE THIS MASCARA

    I met a girl who used this with the matching eyeliner, and I could not stop looking at her eyes- they looked absolutely beautiful, and the color was so vibrant! I had another friend who used just the mascara, and the effect wasn't as dramatic, but still noticeable. Having seen it in action, I had to try it myself. It didn't work so well for me, but that may just be because I have a complicated eye...read more color. I've heard many people argue over whether or not my eyes are hazel or green. I got the version for hazel eyes, and when I wore it, my eyes seemed to have a darker hazel tint. I'm tempted to buy the one for green eyes to see if it has a different effect. While the mascara didn't do much to "brighten" my eyes, the formula itself was amazing!!! No clumps, the brush is easy to work with, and it adds a pretty good amount of volume and RIDICULOUS length. I really don't care what color the mascara was meant for. I'll buy it again simply because it's one of the best mascaras I've ever use!! — 1 year, 5 months ago

    Actually Love It

    Exact Eyelights is actually my favorite mascara. I am not a makeup kind of girl and this mascara is light and goes on clump-free every time. My lashes are already long and thick, so this mascara adds just the right amount of separation and 'oomph' I am looking for. — 2 years, 1 month ago

    horrible!

    seriously...false advertisement. I was so excitedd to buy this since it was suppose to have sparkles and play up they eyes. Unless I'm doing something wrong, I saw no sparkles. at all... NONE. Other than the fact it doesn't do what it's suppose to do, it's an ok mascara. I'm still using it because I haven't bought anything else. — 2 years, 6 months ago

    What A Disappointment

    My eyes are my favorite feature so I love anything that enhances them and makes them pop. I normally like CoverGirl, but I think they dropped the beauty ball on this one. The mascara clumped and didn't do anything special. It looked like an ordinary black mascara. I was very disappointed with this one. Normally I don't throw anything out, but this made a one way trip into the trashcan. While I sti...read morell love CG I won't be buying this or anything in this line again. It was a total waste of money. — 3 years, 5 months ago
