I am not a fan of this mascara at all. I am generally a very big fan of Cover Girl's mascaras, but this one missed the mark. It goes on fairly clumpy, and the brush is a hassle to use. The brush is a large hourglass shape and it comes out of the tube with noticeable chunks and clumps. Application is not easy due to the clumpiness of the product and you need to apply several coats. This mascara flakes throughout the day without being touched at all. I am not a fan and would not purchase this again.
I will use this product but do not plan on repurchasing. It doesn't seperate well and the formula just isn't that great. I will still however keep it in my collection.
I was curious to try out a new drugstore mascara. I heard very little about this mascara before purchasing it, but I decided to give it a go.
Cover Girl sure hit the spot on this one. The mascara defines every lash, and gives me long lashes after about two coats. It does not clump, and others have complimented me about the results. The packaging is fun with the colors, giving it the "flamed out" effect.
It has a wide brush which I love.
For the price this mascara is amazing - it is much better then my Helena Rubenstein and Benefit They're real mascara, which is much pricier. I got this mascara for 5 dollars, that is very inexpensive.
Would definetely repurchase this mascara.
i absolutely love this mascara. it is my offical hg right now. it picks up everysingle eyelash. love the brush sooo much. only complaint i have is how wide the packaging is. it gets pretty messy. please fix
I'll be honest, I bought this because I had a coupon and it was the cheapest. I like it, but it clumps pretty bad. However I just run another fine mascara brush through it, and it looks awesome! This mascara really defines my lashes and gives them volume. Will buy again!
I need easy, breezy, beautiful in the AM, and CG failed miserably with this product. I like the brush, I like the formula but the packaging is terrible and renders this product bascially useless, espeically if you are in a hurry to get ready.
The brush and wand and shorter than average and the brush has a fluffy (not the rubber bristles CG is so fond of now), sort of wavy design. Despite not being tapered at the end like most brushes are, It gets to the outer lashes nicely and give pretty decent volume in one coat. The dark brown shade is really nice, looks so much better than black mascara on me. Formula is not heavy, doesn't make my lashes stiff or dry them out or irratate my eyes. Doesn't clump if you use a couple coats.
So, with all these great things going for it, I can't understand why CG did not make the opening for the brush smaller so it removes the excess mascara when you pull the wand out of the tube?? You would think that a company who's made this many mascaras could have realized that during the testing process of this product.
Every single time I pull this wand out, there is loads of excess mascara on the brush. I mean, like...whoa. Really?!!
Maybe mine was a bad batch but when I looked in the tube it does seem like they made a smaller opening but it wasn't small enough to really do what it was supposed to. Keep in mind, this brush is not tapered at the end and is smaller than typical fluffy mascara wands. They should have made the opening even smaller than what would have been typical.The bristles are pretty close together and falrly dense but it's not enough to keep extra globs of mascara from sticking on the brush. So bascially, this would not be a pratical option unless you have the time to remove the mascara wand from the tube, wipe it off with tissue or qtip or whatever and then apply it to your lashes. I am not a makeup artist, I'm not a youtube beauty guru or someone who has an hour to get ready for work every morning,
Am I making sense here? Am I the only one would finds crap like this totally annoying??
I'm pretty "eh" about this. The few times I have used it, it flaked a bit and doesn't hold a curl well, even though I bought the waterproof. I still wanna try it a few more times and if it keeps up, I might just throw it away :(
My inner lashes are pretty short and very hard to capture even with mascaras promising to grab them, so I've really learned to play the rest of my lashes and love to really focus on the outer ones. This wand is definitely the first I've seen of it's kind and took a little getting used to before I learned how to avoid getting the mascara all over my eyelid while applying it, but once I got the hand of it, I loved it! I always used multiple coats of 2 different mascaras, so with this one creating volume, I pair it up with a lengthening formula since this doesn't lengthen very well. I've absolutely loved the results and will be buying more once this tube is gone :o)
LOVE THIS! It is so natural and your lashes look naturally long. And it's cheap!
I feel so so about this product... I do like the volume the mascara provides but I do not like the applicator. It does not provide much length but I have long lashes already so for me it's no biggie, so if in need or want of some lengthy lashes this is not the mascara for you..
