I wouldn’t call myself a drugstore mascara girl. I use, for the most part, Urban Decay’s ‘Perversion’ from my Naked on the Run (I wasn’t a fan at first, but it quickly grew on me). Which is why I am so incredibly surprised at how much I like Covergirl’s new mascara and eyeliner. [Many thanks to CG for sending these my way, XOXO]
This mascara is called ‘Super Sizer’ – and not just for the fat tube that it comes in. I have a healthy dose of thick, dark lashes to begin with (thank you, French genes), and it’s rare that I find a mascara that can really amplify what I’m already working with (and do so without looking clumpy). But this mascara makes my natural lashes look like #AmateurHour – applied, huzzah, larger-than-life. It gives me the same affect as if I applied some super-sized Mink lashes, and we all know that’s one bandwagon I haven’t jumped onto. Covergirl calls it ‘400% corner to corner volume’, and I would have to agree. Mega-wow!
Covergirl refers to the ‘Super Sizer’ wand as a ‘Lash Styler’. You begin by placing it flat-side at the base of the lashes for an immediate drenching of mascara. Then twirl-comb the volume from root to tip. The short bristles on the wand – erm, ‘Lash Styler’ – apply the mascara, and the longer bristles comb it through.
The eyeliner is called ‘Intensify Me!’ and that it does. I’m usually afraid to venture into cat-eye territory (although I have tried before with Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Feline Flick’) but this eyeliner has a paddle-shaped tip – I’ve never seen anything like this before! It’s almost like a hybrid – I felt in control, like if I was using a traditional pencil, but the color pigmentation was definitely akin to a liquid liner. Instead of needing two products, you could easily use this for a thick/dramatic eye, as well as a thin/elegant eye.
Have you tried the new Covergirl ‘Lashblast’ items? What’s your go-to drugstore mascara?
