Bloomiss Blooming Lashes Mascara Review

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

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen in my stories that I recently received a PR package from Bloomiss – they’re a Canadian brand that specializes in beauty, skincare and aromatherapy. I received the Tension Balm, a Natural Tinted Lip Balm, and the Blooming Lashes Mascara. Today I’m reviewing the Blooming Lashes Mascara. [info in italics taken from the Bloomiss website]

Blooming Lashes Mascara will give your eye lashes a treatment that is nourishing and conditioning, making sure to keep them healthy. That’s not all…we all know volume is key with lashes, so this special formula will lengthen and give your lashing natural looking volume in a deep black to make your eyes pop.  It’s a 100% natural clean mascara that you will feel good about putting on your eye lashes. A mascara that is toxin-free, paraben-free, and free from any harmful chemicals. 

Based on the description of the Blooming Lashes Mascara, this sounds like my kind of mascara. 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 not had a lot of luck with any of the more natural mascara formulations that I’ve tried so far, but I’m always willing to try another one!

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

1. waterproof / water resistant  +3/4 Not waterproof, but it withstood my watery eyes fairly well!

2. smudge-proof +1 This was surprising as it is not a waterproof formulation, but I had no smudging!

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!

5. volumizing +1 Gave my lashes pretty good volume!

6. must hold a curl +3/4 It held a curl for several hours, but not as long as I had hoped! If it improves as it starts to dry out a bit, I will update my score.

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1 Probably the most eye friendly mascara formulation I’ve ever tried!

Overall I would give this mascara a 6.5 out of 7 – the highest score I’ve ever given to a natural-based mascara!

Essence Lashes of the Day Super Volume Mascara Review

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

Today I have a review of the Essence #Lashes of the Day Super Volume Mascara that I purchased awhile back in my little haul from Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty [info in italics taken from the Shoppers website].

Have a #fabulash day with look at me lashes! This Super volume mascara will give you the perfect curl. The brush is designed to evenly apply mascara to each and every lash.

Based on the description of the Lashes of the Day Super Volume Mascara, 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 Essence #Lashes of the Day Super Volume Mascara measure up?

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

2. smudge-proof +1 This was surprising as it is not a waterproof formulation, but I had no smudging!

3. non-flaking / non-clumping – If you don’t wipe the excess of the ends of the mascara wand, if can get a little on the clumpy side. +1

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

5. volumizing +1 Pretty great volume

6. must hold a curl +1/2 It holds a curl pretty well for several hours, but not all day. Hopefully this will improve as the mascara dries out, if it does, I will revise my score.

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1

Overall I would give this mascara a 6.5 out of 7. If it held a curl better, I would have scored it higher. Nearly perfect, but not quite holy grail for me.

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.

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.

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.

Smashbox Super Fan Mascara Review

Smashbox Super Fan Mascara

Hello, hello! Welcome to A BRASH ATTITUDE!

Today I’m reviewing the Smashbox Super Fan Mascara. I got it as a free sample / gift with purchase with my last Shoppers Drug Mart / Pharmaprix online order. [info in italics taken from the Smashbox website]

Smashbox Super Fan Mascara

This lengthening mascara gives you modern, fanned-out volume. Get 12-hour length, lift and volume without any heaviness or clumping.

BENEFITS

• Buildable lift, length and volume that lasts for 12 hours
• 360° Precision double-bristle brush loads product from root-to tip, while the soft comb reaches, styles & reveals lashes you never knew you had
• Super-black formula keeps lashes looking fuller and thicker without any clumping, smudging, flaking or heaviness
• Cruelty-free

If you’ve been reading my blog 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).

Smashbox Super Fan Mascara

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

1. waterproof / water resistant – +3/4 This is not a waterproof formulation, but it did mostly withstand my watery eyes, so it is somewhat water resistant.

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 Fairly good volume, but not mega volume.

6. must hold a curl +1/2 It holds a curl for me for about four hours before my lashes start to return to their natural stick straight form.

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1

Smashbox Super Fan Mascara

The brush is really great for getting the micro lashes at the inner and outer eye corners. Overall I would give this mascara a 5.75 out of 7! I do wish that it held a curl better. The lengthening is really nice, but my lashes are quite long naturally so it isn’t a must have for me. This isn’t a holy grail for me, but it is quite good. If you don’t have stick straight lashes, this might be perfect for you!

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

Hello, hello! Welcome to A BRASH ATTITUDE!

Today I’m reviewing the Fitglow Beauty Goodlash + Mascara that came in my January Petit Vour box [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

3-in-1 vegan mascara, amplifies lash volume and length while nourishing lashes with powerful botanical extracts and plant protein to promote lash health and growth.

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

I am so picky about mascara. I have long, super stick-straight lashes. They are quite light in colour considering my natural hair colour is dark brown. Because my lashes are straight, 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).

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

I have seven requirements for a mascara, and I’ll comment on each requirement and score each point. So how did the Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara measure up?

1. waterproof / water resistant +0 This is not a water-proof or water-resistant mascara. And I have eyes that water very easily.

2. smudge-proof +1/2 This mascara was not smudgeproof on me. It was not horror movie level smudging, but definite darkness under the eyes by the end of the day.

3. non-flaking / non-clumping +1 No flaking or clumping!

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

5. volumizing +3/4 It gave my lashes some volume, but not as much as I was hoping for

6. must hold a curl +3/4 It held a curl pretty well, for most of the day.

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1 My lashes felt soft after using this mascara and my eyes were not at all irritated.

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

The wand is a nice conical shape, great for the inner and outer lash corners. Overall, I would score this mascara a 5 out of 7. It is a really nice mascara, just not a mascara for me due to my watery eyes. If you don’t have watery eyes, this might be an awesome mascara for you. I will continue to use it on days that I’m working from home to get the lash conditioning benefits. If they ever make a waterproof version, I would definitely want to try it!
