I looove CoverGirl LashBlast mascara so in preparation for my upcoming wedding I purchased the Waterproof version. And I am having major issure with it! It flakes off which is very problematic for my contacts. All day long my eyes bug me as mascara flakes off.
Can anyone suggest a waterproof mascara that contact wearers can use?

I love DIORSHOW waterproof. Major volume and it really stays put.

Ditto on stupid flaky waterproof mascara! I tried a Clinique kind this weekend taht I loved. It is a B*TCH to get off though! It forms sleeves on your eyelashes and is super gross to take off. BUt it stays and stays and I even slept in it and it didn’t flake off under my eyes or IN my eyes which is my biggest peeve about mascara.
If you need a regular mascara, I love the Two Faced kind. I bought a kit with one small "lash injection" bottle and a larger kind and it is FAB.

I hear you on the flaking! It happened to me too, I kept ripping my contacts at work because I would rub my eyes so much.
I would second the recommendation for Diorshow waterproof! It works just as well as CG Lashblast (better, in my opinion) and DOES NOT FLAKE! It’s a little pricey but well worth it if you ask me.

for a cheap option, I reallllly like Maybelline Full and Soft(or maybe its Soft and Full?) in waterproof. Its a nice buildable mascara that doesn’t seem to flake(and I am also a contact user).

It’s a cheaper option than some but Avon’s wash off waterproof is awesome! I wear contacts for at least 14 hours a day everyday, and it never flakes but comes right off with warm water and soap. It’s great!

Clinique’s waterproof mascara is hardcore. I wore that at our wedding. To remove it, put a warm washcloth over your eye and slide it down your eyelashes (it forms tubes). Warm water and/or makeup remover both work well to take it off. Otherwise it’s staying on!

Ditto, Cherrypie. That stuff was awful trying to get off! But I’m convinced it won’t budge on my wedding date, no matter how watery my eyes get! It’s "thermal activated" so you basically sit around with a hot washrag on your eyes for 30 seconds before you can take any of it off! It’s great for a wedding though!

I also like maybelline, thats the one in the pink tube right? The waterproof one is great. When I did wear contacts (I have since gotten lasik), that’s what I liked.
Now my favorite is by Chanel
