Hey guys ! I’ve been really into trying out different mascaras because lord knows I haven’t found the perfect mascara. There are however mascaras that I have been enjoying. MUFE smoky extravagant being one of them. I received this sample size mascara from the birthday gift from Sephora. They have a travel size and the full size that retail for $14 and $28 CAD before taxes. They only have the colour black for this mascara.

The travel size mascaras contains 0.16 oz of product versus the full size contains 0.23oz of product. Seems like for the price point it would be better to purchase two travel sizes for the same price of one full size but you get more product but on that note sometimes travel sizes can be different than the full sizes especially mascaras.

The wand goes from being pointed to being fuller towards the end, kind of like an ice cream comb if you will. The mascara wand is not made out of plastic but of that fuzzy fabric.

So this is my lashes after I have applied the mascara. I must say that I have really been enjoying this product. It gives my length but at the same time gives me the thickness that I have longed for a mascara to give me. I might even like it better than my benefit they’re real mascara.

This is a picture of my lashes at eye level and I love how this mascara flares out the outer part of my lashes because of the shape of the wand. I’ve fallen completely in love with this mascara but did find because of the length of the mascara wand I had to really work more with it because it was so short. I did notice some clumping but not a major thing to worry about.

As you can see it has definitely added length to my lashes but I found that the the formula was a little more drier then what I am use to especially after coming from using the covergirl clump crusher. I also noticed that a lot of the product was on the tip of the mascara wand, which is such a wasteful thing and if I didn’t remove most of it my lashes clumped together. I was overall impressed with this product because it was easy to remove, there were no fallout, did not irritate my eyes and lasted the whole day.

Pros:

  • Adds length
  • Adds volume with thickness
  • No fallout
  • Did not irritate eyes
  • Easily removed
  • Long wear
  • Shape of wand

Cons:

  • Price
  • Drier formula makes you think that there isn’t any product on the wand
  • Excessive amount of product on tip is wasteful
  • Some clumping

Overall I am truly content about this product! I love it and i would definitely repurchase this product and I do recommend others to give it a shot with the travel size !

Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara Review

Hey guys ! Today I’ll be reviewing the famous clump crusher mascara from Covergirl. So this comes in a green plastic tube and has 4 different options: black brown, very black, brown & black. I picked this up at walmart for around $9 CAD and some change with taxes. Is it just me or are drugstore mascaras slowly creeping up in prices. I’m sorry I didn’t include more pictures, specifically of the mascara on my lashes. I just tossed the mascara out.

The wand itself is a plastic wand that did not have a lot of excess mascara on the tip. After using this mascara I found that they didn’t clump but they did make my eyelashes clump together making it appear that I had a few eyelashes. It really didn’t do anything for my lashes, they just made my lashes darker. No matter how many coats I used it have no volume at all and just a tad of length. Even after I curled my eyelashes I saw no improvements.

I tried it on someone who already and long and voluminous lashes and the mascara seemed to work but for myself it had no affect. This mascara also irritated my eyes when I wore contacts and when I wore glasses. I noticed a flaking after 4ish hours and by the time it was time to remove my makeup there was a ton. I found the formula of this to be a little bit more wet than I am normally use to. I tried pairing this with another mascara and it helped but not enough for me to repurchase this mascara. For whatever reason I never have luck with Covergirl products and never seem to understand all the hype surrounding them. I’m disappointed it didn’t work but on to the next mascara !

The Good:
• Not a lot of excess product on wand
• can be found in a variety of places
• doesn’t clump individual lashes

The Bad:
• Clumps lashes together
• Higher price than other drugstore mascaras
• No volume
• No noticeable length
• Flakes
• Irritates my eyes

I would definitely not recommend this product and would not repurchase.
