I was recently invited to join BzzAgent's latest campaign for COVERGIRL. I received THE SUPER SIZER mascara in Very Black. After using it for about two weeks now I'd love to share my thoughts!
First off let me fill you in on its claims found on COVERGIRL's website (link to site follows the text)
THE SUPER SIZER BY LASHBLAST MASCARA
The Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara gives you 400% more corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned out lashes. Our amazing Lash Styler transforms even small lashes — just twirl as you apply it to your lashes for an instantly Super Sized lash look. Opthalmologically tested, suitable for those who wear contact lenses.
So now the million dollar question, does it live up to its claims?! Short answer, yes it does! You definitely get lots of volume and length, similar to that of falsies. Having said that, it does take some practice to perfect the technique. You need to twirl the wand as you go, starting from the lash line moving up. Here's a link to show you how its done https://youtu.be/vX0Mq5v3bJw
It took me a few days to get the hang of it but once I did I was happy with my new lash look. However, I was not impressed with the longevity of this mascara.
By midday I noticed it started to flake off, yuck. This is not something I particularly like, naturally. It also clumps up if you're not careful and I can see this becoming a bigger issue as the mascara ages a bit.
The mascara does remove easily with eye makeup remover at the end of the day which is nice. No need to scrub or soak to remove it.
Verdict? As much as I like the look of this mascara once it's applied I can't get over the flaking. Therefore I don't see myself purchasing it in the future.
