CoverGirl Plumpify Mascara Review

{Press Sample}

Influenster sent me the new CoverGirl Plumpify Mascara to review. (It’s pretty fun to be a member of Influenster. It’s free to sign up! You can sign up here.) While the mascara was provided to me free of charge, all opinions are genuine and are my own. CoverGirl also had Influenster send me their new Oh Sugar lip product in caramel.

The brush for this mascara is gigantic. I have found that I actually really dislike huge brushes. I find that a huge brush does not mean huge lashes. Quite the opposite, in fact. The bigger the brush, the harder it is to expertly coat the lashes.

The Oh Sugar lipstick in caramel is a lovely, light nude color. I found it to be quite moisturizing. It nearly matches my natural lip color so mentally, I consider this a tinted chapstick. The quality is good and I would look for more colors from this line to add to my collection.

Here are my before and after shots of the Covergirl Plumpify Mascara. It does a good job of making my lashes look bigger, but I do have issues with the brush as described above. I think for a drugstore mascara, this one’s not half bad. (I really loved the Covergirl Bombshell mascara from a year or two ago. That was my all time favorite drugstore mascara.)

Here’s the full-face look including the Caramel Oh Sugar lip product.

I like the Covergirl Plumpify Mascara, but it’s unlikely that I’ll purchase it. It can’t compete with my favorite high end mascara. (And the Covergirl Bombshell mascara could!) This is a good choice for a drugstore brand mascara and it should be easy to find in many stores around. I like the Oh Sugar lip product line especially since it’s so moisturizing. Thanks again to Influenster and Covergirl for sending these my way!
