Seems like my year has begun with a new love : mascara – only after I started working at Sephora did I fall in love with mascaras and started searching for the black eyelash Grail. But you know what I\’m like : when I fall in love with a product, soon enough I\’ll start wanting one of each collection from each brand. Quite close. I hope that\’s not going to happen with mascaras \’cause it\’s pretty sure I\’m not buying three Dior mascaras, then three Marc Jacobs mascara and so on – don\’t want my credit card buried next to me before its time has come.
Since 2017 began I discovered some awesome, affordable mascaras and I\’ve only had a semi-flop so far. I still have a few non-opened mascaras but I\’ll get to them soon ; even though I\’m afraid they\’ll dry out quickly, I want to see their brush again and try them out again and again… Lastly I finally opened the CoverGirl black Super Sizer mascara I won in Claire MakeUp and Co\’s Christmas giveaway – I had never tried out this brand\’s products before and only knew its name thanks to the great reputation it had – and it\’s amazing. I\’m in love. Wow.
Don\’t try and find this in a French store – it\’s not imported in France by any of the websites I regularly buy from that sell US brands (Makeup Sens, Maquillalia,…). And that\’s where EBay US and Amazon France are important because you can easily find some affordable CoverGirl cosmetics there that can be shipped to France with reasonable shipping fees.
My Super Sizer mascara costs less than ten dollars in the US ($6.85 exactly) and I found it on Amazon France for about €12 (double the price but still a good price for a mascara) and free shipping – that\’s the easiest and less expensive solution for one that lives in France.
The packaging of this mascara is really basic, a bit fat, a simple blue tube with green printing – it looks young and fun. My eye was instantly caught by the very thin and cone-like brush. I didn\’t really know what to expect when I first opened it and I was a bit put off by the quantity of mascara on the brush ; I have a L\’Oréal mascara that has so much product on the brush that I need to wipe of the excess of product before using it and that drives me crazy – there\’s no such trouble with the Super Sizer. I can use it straight away when I open it, no need to wipe off any excess of anything, there\’s just the perfect quantity of product for one eye.
CoverGirl promises that you\’ll get 400% volume from one end of your eye to the other, all you have to do is twirl the brush when you apply the mascara. I didn\’t think it was that hard to do – you know, sometimes brand offer some weird explanation on how to make the mascara work and I don\’t get it so the mascara doesn\’t look as good as it probably should… Anyway, since I\’ve been using this mascara, I\’ve started twirling the brush of almost each of my mascaras – expecting the same awesome result from each !
My eyelashes are straight, light brown from the root and they get blonder on the tip – when you look at me face to face and I don\’t have any mascara on, it looks like I don\’t have eyelashes. This is why I need some good mascaras I can rely on, that pull my eyelashes up and make \’em look ultra black. It seems like I\’ve found the perfect mascara with my Super Sizer.
Not only does it lengthen my eyelashes, it also gives them a black falsies look and pulls them up so high that I think I look like a dolly. Throughout the day, my eyelashes stay up and the mascara doesn\’t come off at all, it\’s just perfect. I think we can all agree to agree – given how many mascaras and makeup products CoverGirl has, I\’m in deep trouble. Goodbye Credit Card ! Do you know the brand CoverGirl ? What do you recommend I should try from this brand ?
Il semblerait que mon année ait commencé sous le signe du mascara – c\’est après avoir commencé à travailler chez Sephora que j\’ai commencé à adorer porter du mascara et à rechercher le Graal du cil black et fourni. Mais vous savez comment je suis : si je commence à adorer un produit, il m\’en faut un de chaque dans chaque marque. Ou presque. Faut pas abuser, je ne vais pas me mettre à acheter trois mascaras chez Dior, chez Marc Jacobs etc sinon, on va bientôt enterrer mon compte bancaire à côté de moi.
