The VolumeExact Mascara by Cover Girl is made for definition and volume. It features a “unique, flexible brush with tiny micro chambers that surround individual lashes with the right amount of mascaara to create voluminous, yet separated lashes.” The result is plumping without clumping.
First thing to note is that the wand is packaged separately from the tube of mascara, of which I’m a huge fan. When I first used it, I have to say that it was pretty phenomenal. It thickened respectably, but what impressed me the most was how my lashes looked so incredibly long with just a couple coats. Honestly, if I were asked to identify my lashes in a photo lineup, I would tell you that they aren’t mine. The mascara doesn’t have any curling effects (but doesn’t promise to), so rely on your trusty eyelash curler. Also, I’ve been wearing this for a little under a week, and so far, no flakes or smudges! At the end of the day, just gently use soap and water to remove. For me, the only drawback is that a waterproof formula doesn’t exist yet (oh, how I love my waterproof mascaras)…but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time!
Available in Very Black, Black, Brown and Black Brown. More information and a list of retailers can be found at CoverGirl.com.
