Covergirl Flamed Out Mascara
Covergirl Flamed Out Mascara
($6) is a new mascara that provides maximum volume to create a bold, winged-out look. The unique wire brush coats your lashes and curves them up and out. This mascara doesn’t claim to add any length, so keep that in mind.
The brush awkward. It’s very large and full, and has an hourglass shape. I find that slightly rolling the brush at the base of the lashes while moving the brush upward works really well. The middle of the wand hugs the lashes as you coat them, and does a pretty good job of coating the lashes evenly. But because the tip of the brush is large, you can’t really reach your corner lashes with it. Often times my fine corner lashes get missed with this mascara, otherwise I’ll end up with mascara on my lids trying. The brush seems to deposit more product to the base of the lashes, so it gives almost a dark, liner effect to the the top lid. I despise any brushes that aren’t your standard mascara wand shape, but you get use to it after a few uses.
It doesn’t do anything for lengthening, but it works really well for building volume. The formula is on the drier side, and because of this, even when there is too much product on the brush and I apply it to my lashes, it doesn’t stick all of my lashes together and make them look stubby. If I do end up with small clumps, they comb out easy with a spoolie without removing the mascara. For a volumizing mascara, I found that it separates fairly well and makes my lashes look thicker and fuller. You can build coat after coat of volume with no problems.
It holds a curl well and doesn’t flake or smudge all day.
If you’re happy with the length of your lashes and just want volume, this mascara is excellent. But, if you’re looking for length and volume, I’d skip this mascara or use it in conjuction with a lengthening mascara or a good mascara base because it layers really well.
Would I repurchase? Although I prefer Covergirl Lash Blast, because it gives both volume and length, I really like this mascara because of the volume it provides without looking spidery. If I want some super intense lashes, I’d definitely apply several coats of this mascara over a good lengthening mascara. So I most likely will repurchase this mascara in the future.
Have you tried this mascara? What did you think of it?
Also, if any of you were wondering, all I have on my eyes is Make Up Forever Aqua Cream
in the shade #15. I’ll be reviewing it soon!
