Beauty Letdown: CoverGirl Clump Crusher Mascara

After cleaning out some of my old mascaras that I rarely used, I decided to purchase the CoverGirl Clump Crusher to replace my now diminished mascara collection. I used to be a big fan of the waterproof version of the original LashBlast so I decided to give this one a try. I have both the original and the "water resistant" versions but today I will be talking about the water resistant version.

Like the original LashBlast, it comes in a large brightly colored tube. I actually find the packaging quite adorable so I have no complaints In that department. The color I chose was Very Black because I prefer having dark, sometimes dramatic lashes. The brush is perhaps my favorite part of the whole thing. It combs through my lashes leaving it clump free no matter how many coats I pile on.

It seems like I'm raving about the product right? However, this is where my love for it ends. The formula is where this product falls flat. It's a bit too heavy for my lashes and makes them wilt like little sad flowers. I can get a great curl using my Shu Uemura lash curler and this mascara negates any curl I've created. Another gripe about this mascara is the water resistant part. It doesn't seem very water resistant at all! If I tear it will smudge. I don't know why CoverGril insists on creating this water resistant formula when their waterproof formulas have been some of the best mascaras I've tried. The curl doesn't drop and there is no smudging whatsoever.
It definitely is a lengthening mascara, as you can see from the eye photo. However you can also see how my lashes do not look curled at all. Overall, this was definitely a beauty letdown that I would not repurchase. If you have straight lashes or Asian lashes, stick to waterproof formulas and keep far away water resistant ones because there is a huge difference. If you have no issues with curl or smudging this will probably be a great mascara for you. 

-Cute packaging
-Great brush
-Lengthens lashes

-Not very water resistant
-Does not hold curl
-Does not create volume

Repurchase? No


Quick Post: Outfit of the Day

Went out to grab some dinner and came up with this outfit. Nothing too crazy, just comfortable. 

What I'm Wearing:
-American Apparel infinity jersey scarf
-Old Navy knit sweater
-ASOS leather jacket
-American Eagle jeggings
-Nike trainers


So, Yeah...

It's definitely been a while since my last blog post. I still even haven't put up my sale yet. I know, I know, shame on me. But I just wanted to write a little update on life for those of you who are still readers of my blog!

- I'm still working out, I kind of fell off the wagon a bit due to a back injury (which is still healing). I still thoroughly enjoy lifting heavy. Due to my back injury, I have had to eliminate deadlifts from my routine, which makes me incredibly sad considering how much progress I made with them. Instead of stopping completely, I've been finding ways to work around my injury. It does make it different and a change of pace, so I can't complain much!

- I went to Vegas at the beginning of the month! The Mister and I went with our friends and stayed for a short week. I say short because I wish I could have stayed longer!

Me and my handsome celebrating his birthday in Vegas!

- Picking up WoW again, because I'm a sucker for Blizzard. Does anyone still play this?

- I got my first leather jacket! I'm crazy excited about this. It was relatively priced considering it's made entirely out of leather, but then ASOS is fairly priced. The jacket is the classic biker jacket, no belts, studs or frills because things like that can go out of style quickly. Always invest in timeless pieces

- I finally purchased the Beauty Blender. I don't know why it took me so long to get it. I bought the Graftobian version of it when I went to IMATs about two years ago and they were OK. I don't know what it is about the BB, but it makes such a nice finish on my skin. I apply my tinted moisturizer and foundation with it and each time it's amazing. I'm definitely a fan and will re-purchase.

That's really all I can think of off the top of my head, I truly hope everyone is doing well!
