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.

  1. Lash curlers look scary. So it's doubly bad to go through that just to have a mascara make them droop. Boo!

    lol, who would have guessed I could comment on a mascara review? :)

    Hope you had a good weekend!

  2. I was just about to pick this up to try! On the hunt for another mascara now...

  3. hahaha, I used to be terrified of lash curlers! And the first time I tried using one, I pinched my skin!

    I hope you've had a great week so far!


Thank you so much for taking time to read my blog. I read all my comments and appreciate each and every one! ^_^
