Totally unexpected, I received some goodies from Covergirl today. It’s their new The Super Sizer mascara and Intensify me! eyeliner.
1. Covergirl The Super Sizer mascara
The Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara gives you 400% more corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned out lashes. Our amazing Lash Styler transforms even small lashes— just twirl as you apply it to your lashes for an instantly Super Sized lash look. Opthalmologically tested, suitable for those who wear contact lenses. Removes easily with soap and water.
Color: 800 very black
Volume: 4 fl oz / 12 ml
Very promising description, I was so eager to try it out! And let me tell you it didn’t disappoint me. The brush seemed awkward to me and I don’t think I did a good job from the first use actually :) But Covergirl did everything that was promised. Very good volume, flexible lashes, buildable formula, no flakiness throughout the day, no clumps… I love the fanned out lashes you get! The only issue I found is that it is not as easy to remove, but all drugstore mascaras are guilty of that.
Bravo, Covergirl! Another spectacular mascara on the market.
I could achieve better results in terms of volume and length but I couldn’t wait to share this review with you, so I did this look pretty fast applying two quick coats on my lashes.
2. Intensify Me liquid liner
Get the control of a pencil with the intensity of a liquid eyeliner for beautifully defined eyes every time. Our all-new paddle-shaped tip gives you two looks in one—thick and dramatic or thin and elegant. The intense black formula glides on smoothly and dries quickly for instant drama. Clinically tested, suitable for sensitive eyes.
Color: 300 Intense Black
Volume: 1 ml
Ok, so this one was another unexpected and unusual tip shape. I was so so skeptical how this eyeliner is gonna perform on my eyes… Paddle-shaped tip for creating a thick or thin line, depending on your preferences, you just have to flip the tip. The idea is good, I like products which you can use in different ways. Well, I tried it and it worked. I could draw a thin line with no problem, even when I would get into my inner corner of the eye. Same thing with its flat side for a thick line, I had no problem making one.
The application was smooth and easy. Most of the time with eye liners like this, I had the feeling that there is not enough product in there, that it’s dry, with this eyeliner I felt like I am using my regular liquid liner. I am not sure though how long this effect is gonna last, I will update this post in a couple of weeks again with more info on this subject.
It has a semi-matte finish I’d say. It is not completely matte but I can’t say it is glossy either.
For those 5-6 hrs of having makeup on my face, this eyeliner didn’t smudge or crack; didn’t fade… I needed two layers of it to get the opacity I prefer.
What I like about pencil liquid liners in general, you can get as close to your lash line as possible without messing up your eye lashes, you know what I mean :)
Give it a shot. You may like this eye liner.
What do you think about new Covergirl products? I know they have some other new mascaras and eyeliners and even some eyeshadow. Let me know if you have tried anything ;)
