It's a mascara kind of day, isn't it? Today is all about CoverGirl's newest mascara offering, So Lashy! A mascara marketed as being and adaptive mascara that gives "bold, dark volume from every angle" that "separates, defines and lifts lashes, even corners and hard to reach lashes" I find I've gotten pretty picky about my mascara in recent years, and really don't think one formula /brush is going to work to everyone's tastes. It's just too subjective. But it is nice knowing you can run into the drugstore and find a great mascara without spending a ton. That's the resolution tie in of the day- spend less. Mascara can get pricey, especially when you're just going to toss it in three months. So, is So Lashy! my new must-have?



It's not. CoverGirl So Lashy! isn't on my list of must have mascaras. It's not bad, but it's also not great. At least for me.

The good: it does give a deep black hue (Extreme Black anyway, this is available in a whopping eight shades) it doesn't clump, and has a perfect consistency for me (not too wet and messy, but also not overly dry.)

The not so good: it doesn't lengthen my lashes very well, it doesn't hold a curl (my lashes need all the curl they can get.) I want a ton of length and volume from my mascara, and while this does add some volume, it just falls short everywhere else for me.

I give CG bonus points for the brush, but it's not a fave of mine either as it holds too much product. I like the spiky tip, which does reach every last little lash, but when you fist start using it, it's just a mascara mess. You really need to scrape product off of the tip and the rest of the brush before applying.


Bonus item! I was also sent the Intensify Me! Liquid Liner in Sapphire. It's very blue. I was expecting a navy, but this is a bit bolder and quite true to its name. I like it! On my brown eyes, it gives a nice pop, and brings some added interest to neutral eye looks.

As for the liner itself... it's interesting. The paddle shaped tip allows you option of creating a thin or thick line. The thin line is super easy to create, making this a great liner if you just want a thin line of liner for added definition. The thicker line... it takes a bit more effort, as I found the liner didn't want to glide very well. You can definitely crate a winged look or flick, it just can't be done in a few quick motions. You need to make smaller lines and fill areas in.

Overall, the mascara isn't for me, but I don't mind the liner. It's definitely a great option for those who are new to liquid liner and just want a simple line sans wing. I think if you're not an experienced wing-er, the tip shape is going to make the process harder. Not what you need or want in your life. What do you think, tried either of these products?
