For years I have been searching for the “perfect” mascara. I want one that gives my puny little eyelashes some volume and lift and make my eyes stand out. And for years, I have spent countless dollars, only to be disappointed time and time again. They would never seem to have the right combination of what I was looking for – volume without the lift or lift but no volume or just a downright clumpy mess. I was becoming very discouraged and was settling for less than perfect.
I was asked to try out COVERGIRL® Plumpify Mascara and I am not going to lie, I was setting myself up for another disappointment. But, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I think this is definitely the closest mascara I have found that has what I am looking for. It definitely gave my lashes volume and enough lift to look like I had used a lash curler, and this was only after one coat.
Obviously with a second coat the lashes were thicker but for general day to day where, only one coat was really necessary for me. The double action brush was a bit awkward at first, but once I figured out the correct angle to use it at, it worked great. I definitely recommend dabbing the end of the brush off the first few times you use it, as it seems to accumulate a lot of the product on it.
Being a contact lens wearer, I find some mascara’s can irritate my eyes, but I have not had a single issue at all with this product. One of the best parts is that it washes off so easily, no raccoon eyes here.
In all, this is definitely a product I would recommend to anyone and has become my go-to mascara. I will be purchasing it going forward.
