The Non-Waterproof Mascara That Holds a Curl

After getting rid of all my old mascaras at once (they are in an "Empties" pile - stay tuned!) I headed to the drugstore and picked up the Covergirl Super-Sizer Mascara (I also picked up the Maybelline Lash Sensational which I'll also be making a post about soon).

I've been wanting to try new mascaras for the past two months, but I held off until I absolutely finished what I already had. I've been interested in The Covergirl Super-Sizer ever since I saw Ingrid Nilsen use it in a few of her videos. She seems to have very similar lashes to me (average length, stubbornly straight) so I thought this was worth trying.

The brush is an interesting shape: it tapers inwards and you're supposed to twirl it as you apply, which I think also helps with enhancing the curl. The effect is volumizing and defining, but not lengthening. 

My favourite thing about this is that out of all the non-waterproof mascaras I've tried, this one holds a curl the best. This holds a curl. All. Day. I had a long day at uni, went to the gym and met friends later, and my lashes stayed curled. My boyfriend even complimented my makeup after the gym, and all I was wearing was this mascara and tinted moisturizer. Although waterproof mascaras hold a curl well, I try to avoid using them because I find my lashes tend to fall out more when I remove the mascara.

It also builds up coats really well, but the brush isn't that separating, so it can look a little bit clumpy (which I don't really mind). It also doesn't flake or smudge! At the end of the day, my lashes still look nice and curled, and it is so easy to remove with just warm water and cleanser. I would definitely repurchase.
