Last Saturday, I received two brand new eye makeup products from CoverGirl:
- The Super Sizer by Lashblast Mascara
- Intensify Me Liquid Eyeliner
I started out with the mascara, and I am so excited about it that I had to let you know about it ASAP.
CoverGirl The Super Sizer Mascara
I love mascara, and I have quite a few different ones that I really like. Yet I’m always looking for HG mascaras. And CoverGirl The Super Sizer is right up at the tippity-top for me!
First, we should talk about the wand. Now I happen to love the wand because it’s the kind of wand that I prefer with a little twist. Instead of being a big, fluffy wand, it’s a thin wand with plastic teeth of varying sizes that, in spite of their relatively small size, really do the job. The wand kinda reminds me of the wand on Too Faced LashGasm, one of my top 5 mascaras. I prefer this slim type of wand with plastic teeth because it is the most clump-free wand for me, and it really lengthens and coats. What makes the CoverGirl Super Sizer wand different is that it has an extra row of teeth at the very tip to get at every little lash when you effortlessly twist the wand around – it’s just intuitive and it really works!
The formula appears to be a regular formula, meaning I don’t perceive any fibers in the formula. It’s smooth and clump-free.
Between the thin wand with the hardworking tip and the formula itself, my lashes get perfectly coated – even the tiny ones the inner corner, the ones at the outer corner and every one in between, giving me a fanned out look that I like. My lashes look very long and nicely thickened. And they really maintain the curl. CoverGirl claims 400% larger. I don’t know what percent, but they look pretty darn big to me!
Plus, no flaking. The color stays put.
Unless you are wedded to the big fluffy wands, you must try this new addition to the CoverGirl Lashblast mascara line. Although I liked the clump-free aspect of the original lashblast mascaras, my complaint was that they didn’t make my lashes look big enough. The new Super Sizer definitely makes them look huge! I LOVE this mascara (“all caps” is necessary here)!
On the CoverGirl website, I found the following shades that The Super Sizer comes in:
- very Black 800
- Black Brown 810c1
- Black 805c2
The price is about $6.85 for 12 ml/4 fl. oz. Made in the U.S. I haven’t seen it at local CVS stores yet, but it should be everywhere soon. If you can’t wait, there are links below for the product at Amazon.
CoverGirl Intensify Me Liquid Eyeliner
I must start out by saying I am not a liquid eyeliner aficionado. Not at all. After all this time, I still have a hard time with it (with the exception of Jordana Cat Eye Liner and Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Eyeliner, both with the tiny brushes).
Intensify Me is supposed to apply with the ease and with the control of a pencil, but have the look and staying power of a liquid.
The pencil-like barrel is thin and easy to hold. The felt tip, that CoverGirl calls paddle-shaped, can be held on the thin side for a thin line or turned to the thick side for a thicker line.
When I opened mine, it already had a blob of liquid liner at the tip. Mistake #1: I should have wiped it off instead of using it as is. Mistake #2: I tried to apply it to my upper waterline, and it dripped. What made me think that was a good idea?
I used it to tightline between my upper lashes, and it worked fairly well for that purpose although it got on a couple of my lashes and made them stick together. Then, I used it to line my upper lashline. At first, I got a pretty good thin line.
But because it wasn’t perfect, I went back over it. Because I’m a klutz, I couldn’t get it to stay on the thin side of the tip as I lined my lid so I ended up with a thicker line than I usually draw.
After trying it, I think Intensify Me Eyeliner is a perfectly good liquid eyeliner. Those of you who actually know how to apply liquid liner will probably like it. For women like me who always struggle with liquid liner, you may continue to struggle, too, but maybe this will do the trick for you.
CoverGirl Intensify Me Liquid Eyeliner is priced at about $8, and it too should be in stores very soon.
What do you think? Which new CoverGirl product do you think you might try?
