It’s been a long time since someone asked me if my lashes were real. I am fooling everyone thanks to Covergirl. I know it sounds like a fake commercial, but it’s the truth. The weird mascara wand does wonders. The trick is that there is a lash teasing part of the applicator. It helps to lengthen and separate your lashes. It’s actually a miracle worker. It makes my lashes so long and fluffy. I have even used it after applying different mascara. I might have found my new favourite mascara of all time.

Sometimes it’s easy to forget about where your love for makeup started. I got back in touch with my roots with some new Covergirl products.
First I tried the Covergirl Tru Blend Face Primer for Dry Skin. My initial reaction was to the smell. This primer smells bad. I’m not sure what the scent is, but it’s not really something that I want all over my face all day. It might sound weird, but I think it kind of smells like tobacco. It is a good primer, but it’s a bit too moisturizing for my skin. I prefer primers that are more mattifying. I might give this product another chance and go for the oily skin primer to see if the feel, and smell, is any different.
To follow this up, I got two new Covergirl products from BzzAgent. I tried Covergirl’s The Super Sizer Fibers Mascara. I have to admit that I don’t understand the brush for this mascara. The bristles are so small that they barely exist. My long lashes want a long mascara brush to get in between and keep the separate. My lashes look fine after applying, but they aren’t super long. They tend to get clumped up easier.
On the other hand, the Covergirl Clean Matte BB Cream is amazing! I don’t know what took Covergirl so long to jump on the bb cream trend. I assume it’s that they were perfecting this product. Like I said before, I prefer mattifying face products. This bb cream gives my face good coverage without feeling heavy. I’ve been avoiding a lot of heavy moisturizers and foundations this hot summer, but Covergirl’s bb cream is great for even hot days.
Many of my favourite mascaras in the past have been from Covergirl, so I was excited to learn about the new Clump Crusher mascara. I have fairly long lashes naturally, so they can get pretty clumpy with the wrong mascara.
I got this new mascara in the mail for free from BzzAgent from the new Covergirl Lashblast Collection.
I was heading out to a music festival the first weekend that I used it. I was excited to see the results. One coat was ok, but nothing amazing. My lashes looked sleek. There wasn’t a trace of a clump. Every lash was well defined. I needed another coat though. After a second coat, my lashes still looked hot! No clumps at all! I was impressed.
I left for my music festival with the threat of a storm approaching. When I got there, the sky opened up and it started to rain. I was stuck outside in the pouring rain with just my friends and my amazing lashes. The only problem was, my lashes didn’t look so great anymore.
Unlike the eyelashes of my friends, my mascara was running down my face. So while the Clump Crusher mascara may not create clumps, it also isn’t very waterproof.
Since that day, I have worn the Covergirl mascara many times. I actually really like it other than the waterproof issue. Two coats give the perfect length and thickness for day time drama with no clumps. You just have to decide how important it is for your mascara to rush.
