As a blogger I happen upon a lot of awesome items, though very few hit that coveted HG (holy grail) status. I don't take HG items lightly and once an item gets there it remains there forever... or until it gets bumped which rarely happens. Even fewer f my chosen HG items are actually affordable and available on the mass market. Of the two new items from COVERGIRL that I tried out one is absolute, never EVER leave me HG status - and that is the COVERGIRL Intensify Me! Liquid Liner.
First I want to talk about the other new item - COVERGIRL The Supersizer Mascara($6.85 // COVERGIRL). Just because this mascara wasn't an HG for me like the liner doesn't mean it was awful. I actually really liked it! Supersizer is said to give corner-to-corner volume and has quite the intimidating applicator. Instead of the applicator bristles being tapered at the top it's taped towards the bottom and twisted. As you apply the mascara you're to slightly twist it for ultimate larger-than-life lashes. I found that this mascara gave good volume/curl but didn't do much for separation. My lashes have the propensity to stick together as it is, and generally I'm hard pressed to find a mascara that doesn't accentuate that. Supersizer wouldn't be in the top 5 for me in terms of drugstore mascaras but if the formula were tweaked to where my lashes didn't stick together as much it'd definitely hit Top 3 because of the nice lift. The shade shown is in 800 Very Black.
COVERGIRL Intensify Me! Liquid Liner($8.00 // COVERGIRL). Never have I ever had a liquid liner go on that quickly and that evenly with no pigment issues what-so-ever. I looked at myself in the mirror. Looked at the liner. Then called BS. No way did this $6 liner just make my life. So I tried it again the next day. Same results. Every. damn. time. The applicator is different - marker-esque but rounded and flat (like a paddle). You can hold it one way for a thin line or press it flat for something thicker. You guys if they don't make this liner in every single color of the rainbow part of me will die. It's that good. The shade shown is 300 Intense Black.
These items are currently available on the COVERGIRL website, though I'm not seeing them on other websites just yet. Look for them to show up soon online and in store!
