Confession time: Until about five years ago, I wasn't a mascara girl. Sure, I HAD mascara, but it was not part of my regular beauty arsenal. Mascara was only for special events, like drinks or birthday parties. I always used the excuse that I had glasses, but what did that have to do with mascara, really?
I've had many mascara loves in my time now, Maybelline's Great Lash, Maybelline's Colossal, Benefit's They're Real, Buxom Lash, Dior Baby Doll and Lancome Grandiose to name a few. But as I moved into the gorgeous luxury of I thought my days with drug-store mascara was behind me! That is, until CoverGirl leveled up the playing field with CoverGirl's Super Sizer!
How CoverGirl's SuperSizer Stacks Up:
Application: I literally don't remember the last time I used a mascara wand that was a brush instead of plastic, I just love the way this style of applicator separates and coats the lashes. The Super Sizer adds an extra twist on this too, with a wand that literally allows you to coat from the base of the lashes and twist to fully dose your lashes. It took a few tries, but after only a few days? I totally got the hang of it. It was much easier to adapt to than Lancome Grandiose which I swear, I still screw up every other time I use it.
Durability: One coat in the morning and it lasted all day long! The formula doesn't crumble or smudge, (which is great because I hate that embarassing mascara dust!) so I'm left with fluttery lashes all day long. Not too shabby, CoverGirl!
Final Verdict This mascara is a total win. It's much more affordable than some of the other products I've been using lately, and totally better effect. I can see some people having trouble with the set and twist technique but once it's mastered, it's so easy to do a quick flick or two to add some volume or to really glam up with a few coats. I don't think I'm spending more than $10 on a mascara ever again. (But don't quote me on that!)
