It can be hard to find quality makeup that is reasonably priced when you’re ready to switch brands or products. I tested out the Cover Girl Professional Super Thick Lash mascara in brown.
It was in the cheap end of cosmetics (the Walmart $3-$6 range), but claims to be “professional” quality. Does this “smudgeproof mascara” live up to its maker’s claims?
Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara: The Good
I can’t go out of my way to say good things about the Cover Girl Professional Super Thick Lash mascara. The only good point I could find about this mascara is that it really does add volume and thickness to your eyelashes. Now, keep in mind, I didn’t say that volume would look good.
Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara: The Bad
The Cover Girl Professional Super Thick Lash mascara is thick, goopy, clumpy, and of very cheap quality. Once applied, the wearer looks like a bad version of Tammy Faye Bakker (remember her from the 1980s TV evangelism stage?) that has gone through a dust storm.
Thick & dry: From the first day I purchased the product, the mascara inside was so thick and dried out it seemed like it was months old. The mascara was so dry that it actually flaked off of my lashes while I was wearing it. I suppose this means the smudgeproof claim is true, but the package didn’t say anything about being flake-proof.
Clumpy and goopy: The Cover Girl Professional mascara clumps not only on the mascara wand, but on your eyelashes as well. It is far too thick to be applied to lashes with any regard for how they will look afterward.
Poor quality: I really expect this quality of mascara from a mascara in a kit of Halloween costume makeup, but not from a well-respected brand like Cover Girl.
Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara: Take It or Leave It
Leave It: Spend a few extra dollars and skip this so-called “professional” mascara for one that will actually be wearable and easy to apply.
Bad, bad, bad – that is the best adjective I can come up with for this mascara. If you made the mistake of purchasing this makeup, don’t punish yourself by trying to wear it just because you spent money on it. Be kind to yourself and just throw away the Cover Girl Professional Super Thick Lash mascara.
