Rated 5 out of 5 by roxygrljc827 Passed the Test!
I have always been skeptical of waterproof mascara and have tried many brands none up to my standards, so I had every intention of returning this when it didn't work! However I'm happy to say I was wrong! It doesn't clump or flake and it withstood my crying eyes! Not just a few tears but my blubbering, broken speech, tears streaming. The first thing I did was check my eyes and you couldn't tell a thing. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by LizJean Holds A Curl Beautifully!!!!
I have very straight long eyelashes that are very hard to curl. I have learned that using a waterproof mascara (that is oil not water based) makes all the difference in the world. I can put Cannonball on in the morning and go riding in the hot Florida climate all day, and they are still curled and no smudging after 10 hours of wear! This is the only mascara I will use.....PLEASE don't ever discontinue it!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by addieroo Smudgy, Runny, Don't do any actual Cannonballs!
I gave this mascara a fair chance. I tried it with primer, by itself, with a full smoky look and with no eyeshadow at all. Within 30 minutes of application it smudged, flaked, rubbed off, and on one particularly bad allergy day ran off with my sneezy tears. I adore everything else Urban Decay, but the mascaras just aren't up to par. Has less staying power than my regular mascaras. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by duke2193 No raccoon eyes!
I have always felt that mascaras give me racoon eyes by the end of the day. After trying many products I decided to splurge and try this cannonball mascara. I love it. It stays where it's supposed to and the pigmentation is a beautiful black. I've worn it in the pool, for my outdoor wedding and just for everyday wear. I highly recommend this product to anyone who isn't happy with their current mascara.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nswickstrom0124 The best mascara ever for wimpy lashes!
I am Asian, and I have short, sparse lashes. I have tried dozens of mascaras. This is the only brand that looks great on me. It's not clumpy, or too thick. But it makes my lashes "pop "! I also love that it's waterproof. Sephora doesn't carry it anymore and I was worried that I wasn't going to be able to find it. Please don't ever discontinue this. Until then I will always keep a back-up on hand.

I wear contacts and use waterproof mascara a lot. This is by far the best waterproof mascara ever! I have tried Clinique, Estee Lauder, Lancome, and Mac and all of their waterproofs were sticky and made my eyes itch. I love how this mascara lengthens my already long lashes. I get a lot a questions about whether I wear false eyelashes because of how bold this mascara makes my lashes appear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JazzySassy Not what I expected
Cannon ball mascara is think is overrated. When I bought this product I was expecting it to be a lot better than the regular $5-10 waterproof mascara you buy at the pharmacy, but its not. My first impression of it was the consistency. The mascara is very thing, and it has a lot of little hairs all over it. at the beginning I thought it was just the brush, so I cleaned it up, removed all the hairs in the brush, but as soon as I put it back in the container it got even more hairs than before. some of those little hairs also got inside my eyes and tangled in my lashes. second, I do not like the kind of brush it has, its hard, for me at least, to use this kind of brush, it was not applying enough in my lashes. Third, when I tried it inside the watter, it just rubbed off as quickly as the other waterproof mascaras I have tried. Over all, its not a bad mascara, its just overpriced for what it does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by adri24 Exactly what I was looking for!
I bought this mascara in hopes of finding a good, waterproof mascara that didn't dry out my lashes, wasn't impossible to get off, and provided the dark color I adore. I got all of this with Cannonball! It's absolutely lovely, lengthens, darkens, and doesn't clump at all. However, when I wanted to take it off at the end of the day, I wasn't having to yank my lashes out. Definitely a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by alexjaii BEST waterproof mascara!!
This is one of the best waterproof mascaras out there.the brush catches every lash! it does not clump. and it stays all day !! it even stayed on through a shower and being in the pool all in one day from 8am- 7pm!!!! the best part it washes off easily!!! your not playing tug o war with you lashes trying to get the mascara off, it just glides off easily with make up remover or facewash/soap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Frances96 Good, but still smudges through the day..
I originally was in love with this product. Finally a mascara that added length and volume, with also holding my usually straight lashes curled through the day. However, when the weather started getting hot here in Texas, I found that the mascara started smudging and giving me the dreaded raccoon eyes by the end of the day. Overall, however, this mascara is good and I would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by riley497 Cannonball
I bought this because I love my waterproof mascara. I have oily skin so any normal mascara will rub off. This does not disappoint, it is very very waterproof. With that, I do have one complaint. I can't use it everyday, because it is a bit drying to my lashes. So if it will be a busy day, or I'm going to be out in the water this is what I will use, too drying for everday use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shiori123 Works well for normal use
I've been starting to swim almost daily this summer, so I figured why not try a more substantial waterproof mascara? It holds up well under most water-related events - rain, tears, boating, etc. However, during my swim sessions is when it started to fall apart. I'm not sure why I really expected any mascara to hold up to a few hours of swimming, but needless to say I was disappointed.
It holds up fine for around a half hour, and then it starts flaking off whilst in the pool. The flaking makes the mascara wearing off substantially more noticeable than running, which would just wash away in the water. The flakes are a real pain to get off, too - even rubbing won't cut it.
That being said, I love, love this mascara. It makes my lashes look phenomenal and it does hold up in 99% of daily life and is vastly superior to every other waterproof mascara out there, so it's a win from me. Just stay out of the pool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Margo17 Cannonbal gets a 10 from me!
I bought this product because I was going to Hawaii and a girl has to look good in the surf, right? Well I did, thanks to UD's Cannonball. It saved me a lot of racoon eyes and I looked flawless in and out of the pool/ocean. This stuff truly is waterproof. Brush is awesome and its really pigmented. It doesn't thicken my lashes so much but it makes them pretty and long! Love!

I bought this because i was going to a pool party last summer. i went in the pool for a little bit, rubbed my eyes, then went to the bathroom and it didn't budge!! no raccoon eyes at all!! the only thing i wish is that they had this in a brown color, but otherwise its perfect!!!

Stock up on this for summer because I can honestly tell you there is no better waterproof out there. I wear this during boxing when sweat is literally dripping off every inch of my body and the mascara stays. I base a good waterproof on whether it can hold up to some tubing action on the lake and this one did! It is the ONLY one that did out of about nine different mascara brands!

I love this mascara so much I bought it over the summer casue I like to have waterproof mascaras over the summer just so if i go into the water then I can not worry about my mascara going everywhere and I absolutly love this mascara it does not run and while its not running it is also making your lashes look like false lashes, and when you get them wet they dopnt get all ruined.

I love Cannonball! I spend my summers in the water, and I needed a good waterproof mascara. This one stays on through swimming, playing and yes...even survives actual cannonballs. :)
It does take a few coats to get the look I want (though do note that it's not super lengthening or curling). It's just a waterproof mascara that says on in the water, which is exactly what I wanted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dorna This trumps all competition!
I was afraid to try this since my last experience with waterproof mascara was a clump-tastrophe, but I promise this will completely erase any notorious preconceived notions you may have about waterproof mascara. It went on so easily and didn't have a single smudge after a pool day in 100 degree Florida weather. My only complaint is that they don't make it in brown too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsKMc Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara
This is an excellent waterproof mascara. It does not dry out your lashes. It applies evenly. It does not speck or flake during the course of the day. It comes off without a struggle with eye makeup remover/makeup remover wipes. It doesn't have that "hard" feeling to it that most waterproof mascaras have. It holds up very well on stressful days/hot days/days outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JunkieJenny Great waterproof mascara!
I live in Texas and it's humid and hot and I swim a LOT! Really love that it stays all day, no smearing, it's got a cool name, and the brush is perfect for my lashes! I don't know what's up with other brand mascaras coming out with crazy brushes that are supposed to have all kinds of benefits but they don't. I'm totally satisfied with my Cannonball!

I am a runner and I'm also always at the beach. With the amount of sweating and swimming I do, I find that this mascara is spectacular! It's dark but not clumpy. It stays on and doesn't run down my face. The brush works great on my smaller lashes. For an athlete, I feel good looking great for race photos, but I don't look overdone or like I'm trying too hard!

FINALLY a mascara I LOVE! I have to use waterproof mascara because nothing holds the curl & I also have a job where it's extremely hot. This gets 10 stars on both issues! My lashes look long, full & fluttery. They don't feel crispy or crunchy. And no more raccoon eyes, flaking, flopping or smearing. And remember... Urban Decay is CRUELTY FREE!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by meglg89 Very waterproof
This mascara is probably the most waterproof mascara I've ever tried! It was very pigmented and lengthens the lashes well. The only thing that I don't like about it is I like volume in my lashes and this didn't do that as well as I would have liked. This is amazing at staying on through the pool and is hard to come off even with makeup remover.

I cant believe how good cannonball stays on!!! I actually wore this to the lake and swam all day long and it looked just as good as when I put it on, no smudges or streaks!!! and it works great when I have a early class in the morning and don't have time to do your makeup, just leave it on the night before and you will look great!!!!!

I've worn this to the beach TWICE, and both times I had to remove it in my after-ocean shower to get it off! It doesn't BUDGE once it goes on! FABULOUS! Dries quickly, combs/brushes out well to remove what very few clumps the brush leaves behind, and is just the best stuff out since sliced bread! A girl has to have her waterproof mascara!

This is truly the BEST mascara I have ever used. It is the ONLY mascara I will use! I have tiny short eye lashes and this mascara makes them long and full...the bonus is that once I apply it I don't even have to worry with it for the rest of the day. Easily removes with eye makeup remover! A definite must for your makeup bag!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Genevieve One of my all-time favorites :)
It's safe to say I'm a mascara junkie. I have over 20 mascaras in my collection and layer at least 3 pretty much everyday. However, this is what I keep on reaching for. :)
I initially got this for the waterproof factor and didn't really have high expectations in terms of actual lash lengthening/de-clumping/any of that, but it really adds a lot of length with absolutely no clumping. It ALWAYS looks good. Plus, the packaging is really cute in my opinion- as per usual with Urban Decay.
It has a long, skinny, soft-bristle brush- which is the kind I personally like for mascara- I find it adds length, as opposed to big plastic-bristle brushes, which are usually more volumizing.
Also, the mascara has a liquidy formula. It's not messy or anything, it's just not waxy like most other waterproof mascaras.
I use this on my own or layered on top of my other mascara to seal it in and add waterproofing. It lasts through pool and beach trips.
A definite repurchase! :) x

Rated 4 out of 5 by CatMUguru Fall-proof mascara
Typically throughout the day I notice my mascara starts running down my face so I bought this one hoping it would do the trick. It has not failed me yet. I usually just use it on the bottom lashes to keep everything in place because it doesn't necessarily work as something to give length or volume I strive for with my top lashes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tt03 LOVE ... this mascara!
I gave UD Cannonball mascara a 3 for color selection because the only color choice is black but actually that is the only color I use. Otherwise, Cannonball scores all 5's as far as I'm concerned.
It goes on well, does not flake or look clumpy. I have had no problems with smearing or smudging. I like the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiffany Perfect so the beach or pool side.
I LOVE this for lounging pool side or when taking a dip at the beach. I'm a swimmer and this holds through anything I do even cannonballs. It's also tear resistant, I cried several times and had something get into my eye while wearing it and the mascara didn't budge. I just hope they can start making this in more colors!
