Recently I received two new products to try through Influenster. I was excited to receive make up products, especially when they are from a brand I usually don't try. I am grateful to be part of the group that reviewed these items before they were released to the public, and I was taken back at how much I loved both of them! Now to introduce you all to the Covergirl's newest releases; The Super Sizer Mascara and the Intensify Me! Liquid Liner.
Let's start with the mascara. I absolutely love mascara. It is a must have for me and if I am not wearing a full face of make up, I am wearing mascara at the very least. So when I was given the opportunity to try this new mascara out, I was so excited!
When I first tried it, I wasn't used to the wetter formula of the mascara. I had gotten use to the drier (possibly almost out) formula of my Better Than Sex mascara by Too Faced. The first application I was not too fond of. I ended up having too much product on the wand and my lashes ended up clumpy. I am not a fan of the clumped up lashes, so I really didn't like it. Thankfully I gave it another try the next day, because I haven't stopped using it since!
The wand has two different style sides, two are longer for more separation and lengthening and two are shorter for added volume and to get close to the lash line. Since I like my lashes to look more natural and longer, I have been using the ends with the longer bristles. It really does wonders and I see a significant differences in my lashes when I wear this. I have a natural curl to my lashes, so I don't have to use a curler and this formula doesn't weigh down my lashes and flatten them out.
The thing I love most about this mascara is it doesn't end up all over my under eyes by the end of the day. I have very oily eyelids, which tends to make mascara or eyeliner run and end up all over my under eyes. This doesn't do it at all and it isn't even waterproof!
This liquid eyeliner couldn't have came in my life at a better moment. I was in need of a new liquid liner and was contemplating between a few options.
What made this one stand out was the felt tip, it is flat so that the application can go on thick or thin with just a simple turn. I loved the idea of this and just couldn't wait to try it. The formula is super pigmented and is so long lasting. Just like the mascara, this didn't run down to my under eyes! Which I couldn't help but love also!
When I did my first swatches on my hand I had noticed the felt tip was very stiff. I have to admit, I was slightly worried about this because I was afraid it was going to apply rough. To my surprise, I didn't need much pressure to get the same pigmentation! With a softer touch, the felt tip was no longer a worry and I still got the same pigmented and long lasting results.
The eyeliner isn't waterproof either, but the lasting power almost feels like it is. I tried to remove the mascara and the eyeliner with a damp rag first. I noticed the mascara seemed to come off pretty easy. The eyeliner on other hand, was rough. By the end of it, I looked like a raccoon. Pretty much, if you want to get all of the eye liner off, you will need a make up remover.
I haven't tried many Covergirl products before, so I was pleasantly surprised at how much I ended up loving both of these products. I ended up loving both of them so much, they have made their way into my everyday must haves too! I've had both of these products for about a month now and I still use them everyday. I haven't found myself going back to my Better Than Sex Mascara or my other liquid liners. Overall, I would totally recommend these products to everyone! I may even go out a buy them myself when mine run out!
Let me know in the comments below if you have tried any of these. If you have, what are your likes or dislikes? I am interested to see how they worked for everyone!
