I purchased this mascara because I generally like covergirls products. I like to test different products out every once in a while. & I thought Id try to switch up my mascara since Ive been using the same kind for a while.. Well, I shouldnt have. Complete waste of money. I dont like this mascara for many reasons. First of all, it smudges. Terribly. Which then leads me too.. Its too wet. My experience.. I have fairly longer lashes, so when applying mascara, any mascara.. I have to be careful not to blink or the tips of my eyelashes will touch my eyelids, etc. Well, When I apply mascara I blink & twirl the brush at the same time, getting as much length and volume as I can. Well, that works great usually, except... This mascara is way too wet & made a huge mess on my face!! It was impossible to apply this mascara the way I do, & not get any on my face. Sooo, that leads me too.. Washing it off. Waterproof. Thats great! Its also one of things I look for. However, this mascara is super hard to remove.. Next thing, It clumps!! Horribly. Im the type of person who usually does at least 3 coats of mascara to get the best look I can.. With this mascara, after my second coat, my lashes just look like 1 big clump of lash. Gross.. Now lastly, This mascara did NOTHING for me as far as length. & Thats the biggest thing I look for in mascara. Huge disappointment.
