COVERGIRL So Lashy! Mascara & COVERGIRL Intensify Me! Liquid Liner Review

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing with you two new COVERGIRL products that are for the eyes! I will be talking about their new Intensify Me! Liquid Liner as well as their So Lashy! Mascara that is designed for all types of lashes!


COVERGIRL So Lashy! Blast PRO Mascara in #785 Extreme Black 


This product really speaks to me because I have both Straight as well as Sparse lashes! It can be difficult for me to find a mascara to help me out in both departments! I have high hopes for this product and can’t wait to see what it will do to my lashes! Applying fake lashes is a quick fix, but this mascara would be ideal for when I go to work or for days that I don’t have the time to apply falsies on.


Pros:
- An innovative product
- I am drawn to the packaging and really like it!
- It is a drugstore item that can be found at major drugstore chains
- This is a plastic wand for those of you who are fond of them
- It comes in 5 different shades: Extreme Black, Intense Black, Jet Black, Black & Black Brown
- It is also available in a waterproof formula (according to the COVERGIRL web site,) for those of you who prefer that formula. I personally do not use it so therefore, that doesn’t affect my opinion on this product.
- The ball tip is designed to get even your smallest lashes


Cons:
- This mascara is more on the expensive side for being drugstore
- Certain areas in the brush lacked bristles to be available to actually coat my lashes which can cause clumps because it is depositing too much product
- The bristles are quite stiff which can raise concern for people with sensitive eyes

Product Features/Claims:
- Lash Fibers
- Mascara can be used for all lash types (Curly, Sparse or Straight)
- 3-in-1 brush head
- Long lasting
- A volumizing mascara
- Bold and dark volume for any type of lashes (their darkest formula to date)
- COVERGIRL is claiming that it is a unique product and there are none that compare to this one
- Smudge, flake and smear resistant
- Great for contact lens wearers
- Easy to remove at the end of the day

Price:
It retails for $11.99 USD on the Ulta web site and $12.99 CAD at Shoppers Drug Mart. This is definitel more on the pricey side for being a drugstore mascara. 

COVERGIRL Intensify Me! By Lash Blast Liquid Liner in #300 Intense Black


Product Features/Claims:
- Paddle Tip - Thick to Thin lines depending on your preference 
- Marker-style pen
- No Mess
- That it has the control of a pencil
- Intensity of a liquid liner 
- That it is suitable for sensitive eyes which I do have
- Dries quickly
- Easy to remove with soap and water


Pros:
- I swatched this on my hand before applying it to my lids and it was budge proof!
- It was waterproof for about 6-7 hours despite washing my hands multiple times before I finally seen it start to fade slightly
- It is very opaque in colour
- The product glides on effortlessly
- It is very easy to use
- Matte finish
- Very easy to remove with my YSL Eye Makeup Remover. I barely had to rub it off on my skin.
- Delivers a very bold colour onto the eyelids
- Affordable as it retails for about $8-$11 CAD depending on where you purchase it from
- A drugstore product
- There are 5 great shades to choose from: Intense Black, Sapphire, Emerald, Blue Topaz & Smoked Amber


Cons:
- The applicator is stiff and can take some getting used to for those who like a flexible applicator tip
- Can feel like you are using a Sharpie marker to line your eyes
- Need to store this tip down in a jar or a glass to prevent this from drying out quickly
- There is a learning curve to using this liner and especially to perfecting using this liner!

Overall Thoughts:
Everyone has a different way of doing their liquid eyeliner. It takes months to master and once you get the hang of it, you become comfortable doing it a certain way. To change the way you are doing it can lead to much frustration. It is inevitable that this product is going to get mixed reviews depending on what your preference is with liquid liner.
