I love designer makeup brands in general but when it comes to mascara, I have no qualms going the drugstore route; why? save for the shape of wand and density of bristles, there isn’t really any huge difference, formula-wise. I had the opportunity to try the new Super Sizer Mascara and Intensify Me! liquid eyeliner by Covergirl. Are they revolutionary enough? keep reading!
The mascara is packaged in a large tube with medium-sized slim wand and sparse bristles. The idea behind is to get to the roots which in effect creates an illusion of thicker lashes. It also makes maneuvering easy. I like that it didn’t smudge or melt the entire time I was wearing it outdoors (daily walks), indoors (whole day in the office) and while sweating it out (treadmill and hiphop).
As with other mascaras I have tried, this has tendency to clump so just a word of advice, stop coating at two. Overall, it did give my lashes some volume. Not vava-voom level but decent enough to give my eyes a ‘lil flair.
This paddle-shaped tip liquid eyeliner intrigued me the most. Aptly named Intensify Me!, it was designed with dual purposed in mind. Apply flat for thicker line, slant for thinner. I have hooded eyes so flat application definitely won’t work as it will literally emphasize zilla’s missing crease. The tip is stiff so creating a precisely-thin flick requires a skilled-hand, something you ought not to do when pressed for time. Like the mascara, it is smudge-proof and deposits the blackest of black pigment. My eye shape is not the perfect target for this new product so while it didn’t work for me, I am sure there are ladies out there who will benefit from the innovation.
Have you tried the new mascara and eyeliner by Covergirl? thoughts?
