Review and Giveaway: COVERGIRL LashPerfection™ Mascara


I remember my mom allowing me to start wearing makeup in 7th grade. Not a lot, a bit of gray liner, some soft, pink lipstick, and mascara. I loved how this little bit of makeup could completely change my look -- distract one from what I thought to be a large nose, make my lips look fuller, and give me long lashes like my younger sister. As I got older, I got more creative with my makeup -- a strong lip would make me transform me into Rita Hayworth, a smoky eye turned me into a sex kitten, dewy skin and I felt years younger.

When I worked as a personal shopper, I won a makeover at our company convention. They cut off a good 10” of my hair, which was life-changing. But more life-changing was the makeup application -- the artist used brushes in shapes I had never seen before, put shimmery, lemon shadow on my eyes, and even mixed shadow with gloss for my lip color. I was so inspired to get even more out of the box, treating my face like a canvas and the makeup as my paint. I was shocked by the final product of the makeover, but so inspired that I purchased a set of new cosmetic brushes that very weekend.

When planning my wedding, deciding on my makeup was just as important as deciding on my dress. I knew that makeup would complete the entire look, make me feel confident, feminine, and beautiful on my Big Day. I wore liquid liner and lots of mascara to perfectly complement my silk shantung gown and fingertip veil and loved the whole effect.

For me, makeup choices are just as important as my shoe choices or what necklace I paired with an outfit -- makeup is the ultimate accessory. With makeup I feel more polished, I feel my look is complete.

If you are a regular reader of Wardrobe Oxygen, you know my favorite type of makeup is mascara. I feel naked without it! So when I got the opportunity to try the new COVERGIRL LashPerfection™ Mascara, I was so excited!

Usually, I am a “the more the better” sort of gal when it comes to lashes. I want them thick, I want them long, I want them full. I want to look as though I am wearing false lashes. However, this past summer I had been wishing for a more natural look that would go with cotton sundresses, sandals, and shorts. I was achieving that by wiping my mascara wand prior to application, but I wasn't always thrilled with the results. It’s as though COVERGIRL was reading my mind when they created COVERGIRL LashPerfection Mascara!

I received a tube of black, which is the only color I wear for mascara. The brush is very stiff, almost feels like a comb instead of a brush. The bristles are spaced nicely to wiggle between each lash. After curling my lashes, I applied one coat and was impressed with the results -- my lashes were darkened and looked miles long. That being said, they looked completely natural, as though I was born with gorgeous long lashes (just like my sister)!

My lashes with COVERGIRL LashPerfection Mascara

I applied a second coat, and then a third and was pleased with how well it layered -- it didn’t give me spider lashes, just darker and thicker. I even wore this mascara to an outdoor concert, and the mascara held up through the humidity and heat and never irritated my contacts-wearing eyes. COVERGIRL LashPerfection Mascara is a fantastic day mascara, giving long, lovely lashes without clumps. With a few more layers, it would also be smashing for after-hours events.

Well here’s your chance to try this mascara out! BlogHer is offering one Wardrobe Oxygen reader a $50 gift certificate to Drugstore.com (one of my favorite online stores). Plenty of moolah to try out COVERGIRL LashPerfection Mascara or any personal care product that Drugstore.com carries!

  5. Like you, I love looking like I'm wearing false lashes! My eyelashes are naturally very long, so once I apply mascara, my eyelashes usually reach my eyebrows. (Don't hate me!)

    Love the new header, by the way!!

  6. I've tried many mascaras, but always come back to Diorshow because like you I want to look like I'm wearing false lashes.  That being said, I'm always on the lookout for new beauty products!

  11. I will give this one a try.  I used The Falsies that Amy mentions, but found it got clumpy after just a couple of weeks. My new go-to mascara is the COVERGIRL LashBlast Length Mascara in the skinny yellow tube.  Loving it.  Natural look, while still showing up behind my glasses.  It gives my lashes nice length and definition without clumping.  Like others, always eager to try something new though!

  12. I'm not a big makeup person, but the 3 things I do use are lip gloss, blush and mascara.  I think great lashes make a great impression.

    I just ordered some Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara because I've heard so many people talk about it, but I am a sucker for Cover Girl--I have two different kinds of Lash Blast in my make-up kit right now.  Sometimes I even layer them and then go over my lashes with one of those little comb thingies.

  22. This sounds promising - I often have clumping problems with my mascara.  Plus I usually have to buy the waterproof version otherwise the product somehow migrates from my lashes to my under eye area, which seems weird to me.

  32. I'm not a huge makeup user but mascara is a staple!  Once my aunt said, "Where are your eyelashes??? Where did you get those little stubby things."  STAB ME IN THE HEART, WHY DON'T YOU??? Apparently my dad's side has long luscious lashes.  Ugh!

I've used CoverGirl's products in the past and I love their mascaras and their eye pencils, and they make such a difference. I can go from looking tired to amazing with a swipe of mascara and a shimmery shadow!

    covergirl mascara has been with me through all of my happy milestones and kept me from looking like death warmed over on most of my worst ones. one thing i can say for certain that being less tan graceful and poking yourself in the eye with the mascara wand is worth it sometimes.and if i ever have to leave a lover again i want my covergirl there wa a song 50 wys to leave your lover i dont care how you do it do it with qpplied covergirl mascara

    I do not see an actual sweepstakes prompt, so I am just going to share a time when makeup was important to me.  I hope that is OK!  I had my makeup professionally done for my wedding and it helped make my day brighter and, since I cried all the way down the isle, I am glad they used waterproof makeup!  LOL  I knew I would cry a lot during the wedding, so that was one less thing to worry about!
