I used this mascara from the time I was in high school on the swim team. We would practice in the morning, so I was always rushed for time. I could put this mascara on BEFORE swimming and it would still look great after practice!!! I didn't wear much makeup back then, but I always had wimpy lashes, so I needed this mascara. I used this mascara for the last 15 years. The price was great and the product was great! Since Cover Girl discontinued this, I have been on an everlasting search for anything comparable. I have tried probably 10-15 different types of mascara in the past 6 months or so. I've learned that my eyes are sensitive to many mascaras. Some have caused me to get little red bumps around my eyes. The ones that don't irritate my eyes, don't work well either. I tried the Remarkable Waterproof Mascara as well as the All in One from Cover Girl and they are nowhere near as good as this mascara was. I just wish Cover Girl would bring this mascara back!!!

Well, I hope that Cover Girl changes their mind about discontinuing this product, however, I'm so thankful to be able to find it online. Sure, the price is about 3 times what you would pay at a local Walmart, but that's what to expect when items get discontinued, right? The product was sent to me on time, and just as advertised! Once again, I am a happy customer!

I truly hope that Cover Girl will re-think it's decision about discontinuing this product. I've never found a mascara that compares!!

I'm pissed that CoverGirl discontinued this product after so many years. From what I hear it's not due to lack of sales either. Why CG? Bring it back. This will be the last time I buy it for 3 times the price -- Not cool. I will now hunt for a product to replace it with and it won't be by CoverGirl, who had a customer for life with Marathon and its eye makeup remover, but I'm now on a mission to find a different one. I already wasted money on CoverGirl's suggested replacement, but it didn't work as well and seemed dry. Please bring back old faithful or I'm off to find a comparable mascara by another. Let Marathon run a product longevity marathon -- That's generally a good thing.

I have used CG Marathon mascara for at least 2 decades now because of its waterproof ability. But this year I had not been able to find it in ANY store around me! I have been mortified trying other so-called "waterproof" mascaras to find that they smudge when I sweat. Buyer beware: If the mascara says it's waterproof, but also states it's removable with soap and water, it's NOT waterproof!

After going for 2 weeks without even wearing mascara, I searched online for my CG Marathon mascara, and found it here of all places!

I am SO happy to have my CG Marathon mascara in house once again! I can now wear mascara again!

Fabulous mascara. I have been wearing this product for about 18 years and am so disappointed that it has been discontinued. It is truly a mascara that you can wear swimming and it won't give you "raccoon eyes" and on those nights when you're too "tired" to take off the makeup, it does not smudge! (I find that baby oil is the only product that removes it). I have tried to find another mascara that works as well, but have not been successful. If anyone has found one I would love to know about it. Thanks.

Great product. Lasts until one removes it without flaking or leaving "raccoon eyes". Too bad that Cover Girl decided to discontinue it! I've tried other CG mascaras and none came close to this one. Now, it's impossible to find "Marathon" anywhwere... I wish I've known that there wouldn't be any more to buy, so I would have bought more at the same time...

I used Marathon waterproof mascara for 28 years, and it was fabulous. It was easy to apply, felt and looked incredibly natural (the brown color was a great option for blondes and redheads who don't want to look heavily made-up), and STAYED PUT NO MATTER WHAT. I could rub my eyes while swimming, and it wouldn't budge. I could use eyedrops, and it wouldn't budge. I could fly overnight transatlantic with an eye mask on, and it wouldn't budge. And did I mention that a tube would last for months? My theory as to why it was discontinued is that it's either toxic, or Covergirl decided it was actually TOO good. The product Covergirl recommends as a replacement (Professional) clumps, flakes, and turns to crap-in-a-tube in about a week. After spending hundreds of dollars trying other drugstore options and being continually disappointed, I'd been limping along with the Professional stuff, but now Covergirl appears to have discontinued the black/brown color, and I've finally had it. I'd rather spend four times as much for a department store brand that's only marginally better than continue to give any amount of money to a company with so little regard for niche consumers. Adios, Covergirl.

I don't know why Cover Girl stopped making this mascara!! I used it for years. Now I have to pay $25 for mascara that is waterproof. I tried 5 - 7 other brands that claimed to be waterproof but were not.
