This is one of the items that I asked my parents to pick up for me on their trip to America earlier this year. I’ve only just gotten around to testing it as it seems a waste to open a new mascara when I have so many already on the go and nowhere near finished/expired – despite being a mascara fiend – I thought I would wait a while.
Unfortunately after all the build up to using it I was really disappointed. The brush looked nice when I opened it, but when I applied it made little or no difference to my lashes – huge fail.
Below is a shot of my eye with about 3-4 coats of this mascara on. I didn’t post one of my eye without as there is hardly a difference. The mascara is only on the top lashes.
As it’s waterproof it’s also quite tough to get off – although I haven’t tested it’s waterproof-ness yet so can’t comment on that. I don’t plan to continue using this (which is a little ironic considering I held of using it because I didn’t want to ‘waste’ it!) but I want long fluttery lashes and this just doesn’t deliver.
I have one more Covergirl mascara to test (the purple tube one – can’t remember it’s name right now) and hope it’s good. Although since I’m now going to New York in a few weeks I will pick up some others if there are ones that are worth it? Any America beauty recommendations welcome below.
