Based on the description of the elf Cosmetics Big Mood Waterproof Mascara, this sounds like a great mascara for me. If you’ve been reading abrashattitude.com for awhile, you will know that I am very very 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 use a lash curler and I need a mascara will hold a curl. My eyes are sensitive, and water easily so any mascara that I use must be smudge proof, and water resistant.

elf Cosmetics Big Mood Waterproof Mascara

I have seven requirements for a mascara, and I’ll comment on each requirement and score each point. So how did the Big Mood Waterproof Mascara score?

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!

5. volumizing +3/4 Good volume, great length, but I always want MORE VOLUME!

6. must hold a curl +3/4 It holds a curl pretty well, wish it had better hold

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1 no itchy eyes!

Overall I would give this mascara a 6.5 out of 7 – which is pretty damn good! I especially love the chunky hourglass wand – it works well for my lashes and eye shape. I love that elf Cosmetics is cruelty free, and vegan, and affordable!

Have you tried this mascara?

Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Waterproof Mascara by LashBlast Review

Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Waterproof Mascara

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

Today I have a review of the Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Waterproof Mascara by LashBlast – I purchased it a few weeks ago and have been testing it out. [info in italics taken from the Covergirl Canada website and from the packaging]

Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Waterproof Mascara

Full Lash Bloom Waterproof Mascara gives you exceptional lash fullness that’s soft even to the touch and is perfect for everyday wear. With our new petal-shaped brush and mousse formula with natural beeswax, lashes are never stiff or brittle. So bring out every last lash, and embrace you in full bloom!

Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Waterproof Mascara

Full Lash Bloom brush, with short and long bristles, creates volume from root to tip and combs and coats lashes evenly for full separated volume. Waterproof formula provides volume that stays soft to the touch all day.

Based on the description of the Full Lash Bloom Mascara, this sounds like a great mascara for me. If you’ve been reading abrashattitude.com for awhile, you will know that I am 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 use a lash curler and I need a mascara will hold a curl. My eyes are sensitive, and water easily so any mascara that I use must be smudge proof, and at least water-resistant.

Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Waterproof Mascara

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

1. waterproof / water resistant +1 Waterproof!

2. smudge-proof +1 No smudging!

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

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

5. volumizing +1/2 The volume was ok. Not the full volume that I was hoping for.

6. must hold a curl +1/2 Did not hold a curl as well as I had hoped. Surprising for a waterproof formula, usually they hold a curl much better.

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1

Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Waterproof Mascara

Overall I would give this mascara a 6 out of 7. If it held a curl better and had better volume, I would have scored it higher. I like it, but it’s definitely not a holy grail mascara for me. If the mascara starts to perform better as it dries out a bit, I will re-evaluate my score.

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.

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!

  • 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).

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.

Essence All Eyes On Me Waterproof Mascara Review

Hello, hello! Welcome to A BRASH ATTITUDE!

Today I have a review of the All Eyes On Me Waterproof Mascara from Essence Cosmetics. [info in italics taken from the Essence website]

All eyes on you! The essence all eyes on me waterproof mascara provides your lashes with extra volume,  length and a breathtaking curve. The volumizing wand covers each individual lash and offers ideal separation.  Paraben Free. No Animal Testing

Essence All Eyes on Me Waterproof Mascara

You all know that I am 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).

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

1. waterproof / water resistant +1

2. smudge-proof +1

3. non-flaking / non-clumping +1

5. volumizing +1/2

6. must hold a curl +1/4

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1

Essence All Eyes on Me Waterproof Mascara

The brush shape is really great for getting the lashes at the inner and outer eye corners.

Overall I would give this mascara a 5.75 out of 7. I wish that it had better volume and 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. I like it, but it isn’t a holy grail for me.

Catrice Rock Couture Extreme Volume Waterproof Mascara

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you will know that I am extremely picky when it comes to mascara because I have long, stick straight lashes, that are light in colour despite being a natural dark brunette. I have to curl my lashes before I apply mascara or else it looks like I barely have any lashes. And I have sensitive eyes that water easily, so any mascara I use must be smudge-proof and water-resistant (ideally waterproof).

Catrice Rock Couture Extreme Volume Waterproof Mascara

I have seven requirements for a mascara, and I’ll comment on each requirement and score each point. So how did the Catrice Rock Couture Extreme Volume Mascara measure up?

1. waterproof +1 point

2. smudge-proof +1 point

3. non-flaking / non-clumping +3/4 point – I find that short bristle brushes tend to clump if you don’t wipe off the excess mascara before using. No flaking though!

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 point – I did not have extreme volume, I had some volume – but not enough in my opinion.

6. must hold a curl +1/2 point – It did not hold a curl all day for me.

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

Catrice Rock Couture Extreme Volume Waterproof Mascara

Overall, this one was good, but not great – mainly because it did not give enough volume and did not hold a curl all day with 5.75 out of 7 (based on my rating scale).

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).
