I was pretty excited when Covergirl contacted me asking if I’d like to review their new Super Sizer Mascara and Intensify Me! Liquid Liner. Covergirl is a classic and, growing up, I favored this drug store brand for many of my cosmetic needs.
Later into my adulthood, however, I switched to higher end mascaras and eyeliners because of their performance, lasting ability, plus the fact that I wear contact lenses and my eyes became really sensitive to eye makeup for awhile and could only tolerate certain brands! My eye sensitivity has subsided since switching to a better brand of lenses last year, but I was still curious to see how this liner and mascara duo would hold up to higher end since I never switched back to drug store after my eye sensitivity subdued.
First of all, here’s the wand for the Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara:
I liked the brush as soon as I opened it. I have teeny tiny lashes– almost non-existent– and it takes a really fine wand to coat them all and make them noticeable.
I’m admittedly a wuss when it comes to eyeliner. I like to stick to pencil or gel liners because liquid liners and I have never had a great relationship. I’ve tried all the “easy” hacks to apply it, but when it comes down to it, I know it just takes practice and I figured that I’m already in the habit of using pencil liners, why do I need to change that?
The Covergirl Intensify Me! liner is like a felt tipped liner… which is a type of liquid liner I have had more success with applying because it’s much easier to me than liquid liners with brushes. However, I still never had much luck with falling in love with feeling 100% at ease with it because I can’t get the line as precise as I’d like– there’s not a lot of room for error.
But when I took off the top of the Covergirl Intensify Me! liner, I noticed it has a paddle shaped applicator, and, I have to tell you, this has made all the difference! A bumbling clumsy-handed eyeliner applier like me can do this!
So, here are my before and after shots without mascara and eyeliner and with:
I’ve mentioned before, that I’m not great at taking pics of my eyes, but I’m getting better (believe it or not!) (But, seriously, any tips would be appreciated! I’m a little embarrassed). I was actually REALLY impressed with my mascara. The above pic was with just one coat. I haven’t purchased drug store mascara in years, but I think I’ve actually found a keeper here! And I’m thrilled because it’s considerably less expensive than what I’ve been using!
So, what do you think? Have you tried Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara or Intensify Me! Liquid Liner?
