Covergirl The Super Sizer Big Curl Mascara Waterproof Review

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I have a review of the Covergirl The Super Sizer Big Curl Mascara Waterproof in the shade Very Black that I purchased awhile back in my little haul from Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty [info in italics taken from the Shoppers website].

Super-sized curl and volume in an instant! Use COVERGIRL’s Big Curl Mascara for evenly-coated, lifted lashes from root to tip. Your curled lash look will last all day!

Based on the description of the Covergirl The Super Sizer Big Curl Mascara Waterproof, this sounds perfect for me. If you’ve been reading abrashattitude.com for awhile, you will know that I am admittedly so mega picky about mascara. I have long, super stick-straight lashes that are quite light in colour considering my natural hair colour is dark brown. I need to use a lash curler and I need a mascara that holds a curl. My eyes are sensitive, and water easily so any mascara that I use must be smudge proof, and water-resistant.

I have seven requirements for a mascara, and I’ll comment on each requirement and score each point. So how did the Covergirl The Super Sizer Big Curl Mascara Waterproof measure up?

1. waterproof / water resistant  +1

2. smudge-proof +1

3. non-flaking / non-clumping +1

4. must be DARK black (not blackish, not brown black, and definitely not grey black) +1 Super dark black, MEGA!

5. volumizing +1/2 Sadly this mascara is not as volumizing as I had hoped – may it will improve as the mascara dries out a bit, if so, I will update the score.

6. must hold a curl +1 Holds a curl really well!

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1

The brush is a curved, needle type bristle brush – gets all the lashes, even the tiny lashes at the inner corner. Overall I would give this mascara a 6.5 out of 7 – very close, but not quite Holy Grail status.

Have you tried this mascara, did you like it?

Empties January 2021

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I have my empties for the month of January. I will link to the original reviews, and let you know whether or not the product is something that I would purchase / or re-purchase.

Skincare:

Indeed Labs Retinol Reface – I really liked this retinol serum, and would buy it again eventually. There are a few retinol serums on my list of products to try.

Be On Me Face Serum – This was a PR / sponsored review product, but I really liked it a lot. I used it every morning before my moisturizer for an added hydration boost. I would purchase this eventually – I have a list of serums that I want to try, so it might take awhile.

Eco by Sonia Driver Super Citrus Cleanser – This was one of the cleansers from my Cert Clean / Clean Beauty Awards judging package. I loved this one, and I would purchase it eventually.

Volition Beauty Strawberry-C Serum – This was gifted to me by a friend. Such a beautiful vitamin C serum! I am using another C based serum from my stash, but I would purchase this one eventually.

Grace & Stella Hello Hydration – This is a great, lightweight serum from my CAUSEBOX subscription. I would purchase this one for summer hydration boosting.

Makeup:

Covergirl Lash Blast Active Mascara – I really liked this mascara, the longer I used it, the more I liked it. I’m currently testing out two new mascaras, so no need to re-purchase at the moment.

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector – I’ve been buying this under eye brightening concealer since 2016, so unless I find something that works better, I’ll purchase this again.

Covergirl Exhibitionist Uncensored Waterproof Mascara – Another great mascara from Covergirl. I’m actually testing another waterproof mascara from Covergirl at the moment, so no need to re-purchase.

So there you have it – all of my empties for the month of January!

Covergirl Clean Fresh Skin Milk Foundation Review

Hello, hello! Welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I have a review of the Covergirl Fresh Skin Milk Foundation – I’ve already reviewed the matching pressed powder, and now I’ve finally purchased and tested the foundation. [info in italics taken from the Covergirl Canada website]

Show off fresh, healthy skin with COVERGIRL Clean Fresh Skin Milk. Formulated without formaldehyde, phthalates, parabens, sulfates and talc, this lightweight nourishing liquid foundation gives your skin the moisture boost it craves with a delicate infusion of milky coconut and soothing aloe. You’ll experience a glowing, dewy finish that lasts all day long, blurring imperfections and creating a more even skin tone. Pro-tip: Use COVERGIRL TruBlend Face Primer before applying for an even more flawless finish.

The foundation is available in 14 shades, ranging from Porcelain to Dark. I still think that the shade range could be expanded more. I purchased the shade 520 Fair, as the lightest shade looked too light for me.

Shadewise, I think that Fair is pretty close to my natural skin tone. This foundation is super lightweight and hydrating and the finish is very natural looking and radiant. The coverage is light, but buildable, and it evens out my skintone. I think that this is a good choice if your skin is on the normal to dry side. I’m not sure if the dewy finish would work for oily skin.

Have you tried this foundation?

Covergirl Clean Fresh Pressed Powder Review

Covergirl Clean Fresh Pressed Powder

Hello, hello! Welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I have a review of the Clean Fresh Pressed Powder from Covergirl [info in italics taken from the Covergirl website]

Covergirl Clean Fresh Pressed Powder is talc-free and formulated with tapioca and aloe vera powder to absorb oil and deliver fresh, natural-looking skin. The 100% vegan pressed powder makes pores less visible, so skin looks and feels smooth. Apply the powder with the included vegan foam puff for easy application. Covergirl Clean Fresh Pressed Powder is formulated without phthalates, mineral oil, formaldehyde, talc, parabens, or sulfates. Pro-tip: Pair the face powder with Covergirl Clean Fresh Skin Milk for a flawless finish that lasts all day.

This pressed powder is available in 6 shades – 100 translucent, 120 fair, 140 light, 160 medium, 180 tan and 200 rich – not a wide range of shades – kind of ridiculous really. I purchased the shade 140 light and it is perfect for me.

This is a really smooth pressed powder and it looks natural on my skin. I like it a lot!

Have you tried this pressed powder?

Covergirl Lash Blast Active Mascara Review

Hello, hello! Welcome to / welcome back to A BRASH ATTITUDE!

Today I have a review of the Covergirl Lash Blast Active Mascara in the shade Extreme Black. I purchased it recently and have been testing it out. [info in italics taken from the Covergirl website & from the packaging]

Covergirl Lash Blast Active

Lash Blast Active Mascara gives an instant boost of volume that can’t be stopped—offering up to 24 hour wear that won’t let you down! The formula is sweat-proof, smudge-proof and clump-proof ready to take you through your day. The brush provides easy application, control and separation due to the alternating bristle lengths and the brush shape that hugs the lash line. Suitable for contact lens wearers and ophthalmologically tested.

Based on the description, this mascara sounds perfect for me. If you’ve been reading abrashattitude.com for awhile, you will know that I am admittedly mega picky about mascara. I have long, super stick-straight lashes that are quite light in colour considering my natural hair colour is dark brown. Normally I always use a lash curler before applying mascara but I’ve recently had my very first lash lift and tint, so my curler is stashed away, and no waterproof formulas for me. My eyes are sensitive, and water easily so any mascara that I use must be smudge proof, and water-resistant.

I have seven requirements for a mascara, and I’ll comment on each requirement and score each point. So how did the Covergirl Lab Blast Active Mascara measure up?

1. waterproof / water resistant  – Not waterproof, but it withstood my watery eyes, so quite water-resistant +1

2. smudge-proof +1

3. non-flaking / non-clumping +1

4. must be DARK black (not blackish, not brown black, and definitely not grey black) +1 Super mega black, MEGA!

5. volumizing +1/2 to 3/4 depending on whether I do one or two coats.

6. must hold a curl +1 I’ve had a lash lift done, but the mascara did not make my lashes droop. I may change this score once my lash lift wears off and I test it with my lashes in their normal state.

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1

Covergirl Lash Blast Active Mascara

The brush is one of those narrow flexible needle type brushes (what is this mascara brush type called), which I’m not usually a fan of, but this one is great for getting all my lashes, even the teeny ones! Overall I would give this mascara a 6.5 to 6.75 out of 7 – veering towards holy grail status!

Covergirl Exhibitionist Uncensored Mascara Review

Covergirl Exhibitionist Uncensored Mascara Waterproof

Hello, hello! Welcome back to A BRASH ATTITUDE!

 

Covergirl Exhibitionist Uncensored 1

Today I have a review of the Covergirl Exhibitionist Uncensored Mascara in the Waterproof Formula. I purchased it recently and have been testing it out. [info in italics taken from the Covergirl website & from the packaging]

Covergirl Exhibitionist Uncensored 2

Go ahead, be bold with COVERGIRL Exhibitionist Uncensored Mascara. Available in waterproof and non-waterproof varieties, this ultra-volumizing mascara creates full, defined lashes after just one coat. Infused with decadent coconut and jojoba oils, this mascara won’t smudge or flake out on you. Keep the lash party going day and night with uninhibited, show-stopping volume!

  • Gives eye opening effect
  • Lengthens, lifts & separates lashes
  • Waterproof. Smudge-Proof. Clump-Proof.
  • Suitable for sensitive eyes

Sounds like the perfect mascara for me when you compare the claims with my requirements. If you’ve been reading abrashattitude.com for awhile, you will know that I am admittedly mega picky about mascara. I have long, super stick-straight lashes that are quite light in colour considering my natural hair colour is dark brown. I always use a lash curler before applying mascara. My eyes are sensitive, and water easily so any mascara that I use must be smudge proof, and water-resistant (ideally waterproof).

Covergirl Exhibitionist Uncensored 3

I have seven requirements for a mascara, and I’ll comment on each requirement and score each point. So how did the Exhibitionist Uncensored Mascara measure up?

1. waterproof / water resistant  +1

2. smudge-proof +1

3. non-flaking / non-clumping +1

4. must be DARK black (not blackish, not brown black, and definitely not grey black) +1 Super mega black!

5. volumizing +1/2 Decent volume but not as much as I had hoped!

6. must hold a curl +3/4 I think that this score might improve once the mascara dries out a bit as it is a fairly wet formula.

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1

Covergirl Exhibitionist Uncensored Mascara Waterproof

The brush is large (but not gigantic), which I’m a fan of. Overall I would give this mascara a 6.25 out of 7 – pretty great, and I think my opinion will improve once the formula dries out a bit.

Empties October 2019

Empties Oct 2019 - Buck Naked Soap Company, Native Deodorant, The Seaweed Bath Co., Moon Rivers Naturals

Hello, hello!

Another month of empties that I managed to finish up from my stash. I’ll link to the original reviews and let you know if I would re-purchase or not (immediately or eventually).

Bath + Bodycare:

Empties Oct 2019 - Buck Naked Soap Company, Native Deodorant, The Seaweed Bath Co., Moon Rivers Naturals

Buck Naked Soap Company Geranium + Purple Clay Sugar Scrub – This was gifted to me, and I loved it so much. I plan on getting myself a replacement the next time I do a haul from well.ca. Review is here.

Native Deodorant Vanilla & Rose – I’ve been using Native for over a year now, and it works well for my body chemistry. I have a few in various scents in my stash, so no need to repurchase just yet. Reviews are here and the sensitive formula here.

The Seaweed Bath Co. Firming Detox Cream – This was from a recent Petit Vour box. I really liked this body cram a lot, and would love to have a full size. I have some other body lotions and creams to use up, so for now it is a wishlist item. Review is here.

Moon Rivers Naturals Peppermint Lava Salt Hand + Body Soap – This was also from a recent Petit Vour box. I loved this shower gel, it smelled so good. I have other soaps / shower gels to use up, so I won’t be buying a full size right now, but probably would eventually. Review is here.

Skincare + Makeup:

Empties Oct 2019 - Ursa Major, Covergirl, Lily Lolo, Goldfaden MD, Cosmessential

Ursa Major Bright & Easy Flash Mask – This was a Petit Vour box sample. I really loved this mask. It worked so well on my sensitive skin and made it look so bright! A definite wishlist item as I have more skincare to use up. Review is here.

Covergirl The Super Sizer Waterproof Mascara – This mascara was good, but not a holy grail for me, so I won’t repurchase this particular one, but will likely buy a different one from Covergirl to try. Review is here.

Lily Lolo Makeup Mist – This was a nice setting spray that came in my Petit Vour subscription, I used it more as a facial mist than as a makeup setting spray. I’m currently testing out another makeup setting spray and a few toner mists so no need to replace. Review is here.

Goldfaden MD Needle-less Line Smoothing Concentrate – Another Petit Vour sample that I loved! I’m still using up a few serums, but would love to eventually get a full size of this one! Review is here.

Cosmessential Essential C Serum – This was a PR sample. My skin loved this Vitamin C based serum, so onto the wishlist it goes as I have several serums that I need to finish up. Review is here.

Did you finish up much this month?

Empties July 2019

Empties July 2019

Hello, hello!

Today I have my monthly empties for you with links to the original reviews, and whether or not I plan to purchase / re-purchase right away or eventually.

Skincare:

Empties July 2019 - Skincare - EiR NYC, The Ordinary, Blissona, BKind, Kahina Giving Beauty

EiR NYC Active Face Wash – This was a Petit Vour box sample. Quite possibly the most unappealing looking foaming face wash, but I really LOVED this one for washing off my sunscreen and makeup at the end of hot and humid days. Definitely going on my wishlist! Original review is here.

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG – This is the last product in my mini project pan for serums. You only need the smallest amount for your undereye, so this one took forever to finish up. I really like it, but want to try out something new. Original review is here.

Blissoma Refine Clay Renewal Treatment – Another Petit Vour sample. This was such an awesome mask, I’d love to own a full size. I have several masks to use up, so onto the wishlist it goes. Original review is here.

BKind Sensitive Skin Face Scrub – Yet another Petit Vour sample, a great exfoliating and moisturizing scrub, super gentle. I have other scrubs to finish up but I would purchase a full size of this one. Review is here.

Kahina Giving Beauty Oil Cleanser – Another Petit Vour sample. I loved this oil cleanser, so very gentle and effective. I’m still working my through my cleanser stash, so you guessed it, onto the wishlist it goes. Review is here.

Makeup:

Empties July 2019 - Makeup - Covergirl, Essence, Suntegrity

Covergirl Exhibitionist Waterproof Mascara – I liked this mascara a lot. I won’t be repurchasing this one because there are others from Covergirl that I’d like to try. Review is here.

Essence Volume Hero Waterproof Mascara – Similarly, I liked this mascara quite a bit as well, but I won’t be repurchasing this one but there are others from Essence that I’d like to try. Review is here.

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin Moisturizing Face Sunscreen Tinted SPF 30 – Another Petit Vour sample. This was slightly too light for me recently, but I started adding in the KVoss Bronzing Potion Glow Cream and not only did it make the shade perfect for me, it added radiance and made the finish less matte / less drying on my skin. Review is here.

Empties July 2019

Overall, I’m happy that I’m making steady progress at using up the products in my stash. Did you finish up much this month?

Covergirl Super Sizer by Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Super Sizer by Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara from Covergirl [info in italics taken from the Covergirl Canada website].

Covergirl Super Sizer by Lashblast Waterproof Mascara

The Super Sizer by Lash Blast 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. 

Covergirl Super Sizer by Lashblast Waterproof Mascara

I am so picky when it comes to my mascara because I have long, stick straight lashes, light in colour despite being a natural dark brunette. I need to curl my lashes before I apply mascara or else it looks like I barely have any lashes. I have sensitive eyes. And my eyes water easily, so any mascara that I use must be smudge-proof and water-resistant (or waterproof) or else I’ll be in hot mess!

Covergirl Super Sizer by Lashblast Waterproof Mascara

The brush is super tiny, which made it easier to get into the corners, but I usually prefer a larger brush for my mascara as I find that it works better volume-wise for my lashes.

I have seven requirements for a mascara, and I’ll comment on each requirement and score each point. So how did Covergirl’s Super Sizer Waterproof Mascara measure up?

1. waterproof +1 point

2. smudge-proof +1 point, no smudging!

3. non-flaking / non-clumping +1/2 This mascara can get clumpy if you don’t clean the excess of the brush before applying.

4. must be DARK black (not blackish, not brown black, and definitely not grey black) +1 point, this mascara is super mega black (yay!)

5. volumizing +1/2,  I got some volume but not amazing volume with one coat, two coats gives better volume (but at increased clump risk), but for daily wear, I tend to stick to one coat. Definitely not a 400% increase in volume.

6. must hold a curl +3/4 point, it held a curl for me pretty well (but not awesomely well), and no droopy lashes.

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1 point

Covergirl Super Sizer by Lashblast Waterproof Mascara

Overall, this one was good, but not great for me with 5.75 out of 7 (based on my rating scale).

Have you tried this mascara, did you like it?
