“Intense” and “Super Size” Eyes with Covergirl

No matter how happy I am with a mascara, I can’t help myself from sampling the latest/greatest that comes out at the drugstore.

A lot of times the launches coincide with current trends, and I love to stay on top of what’s hot in the beauty world!

The latest of my eye experiments that I’m sharing today is with Covergirl The Super Sizer, as well as the brand’s new eyeliner, Intensify Me! Both of these products are new and not yet in stores, although you can find them on the Covergirl website for sale (more deets on that at the end!).

Both products were introduced to help us create the runway-trendy “statement eye” – a thick cat eye and voluminous lashes – at home.

Check out the wand on the mascara:

The Super Sizer is supposed to “provide bold, corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned out lashes,” according to the packaging, The idea with this wand is that you’re supposed to twirl it as you apply the mascara. First, apply the flat part of the brush to the root of your lashes, depositing product. You can see that there is a lot of mascara on the brush where its flat, too.

Then, using the twirling or rotating motion with it as you brush, deposit and work mascara up your lashes.

If you slowly turn the brush in your hand, you’ll notice that it has a natural twirl to it, like the stripes of a candy cane!

Let’s switch gears for a second!

Here’s a look at the tip of the eyeliner:

Intensify Me! has a paddle-shaped tip to accommodate a thin or thick line look with a rich black liquid liner formula.

Hand swatches of the liner, both ways:

The liner deposits a strong amount of pigment to your lid, with little effort. The above hand swatches are just one quick swipe!

Excited to try both products, I wore them as part of my eye of the day at The Makeup Show NYC on Sunday!

I prefer the thinner line, because with hooded lids, it’s a little harder for me to achieve a great cat eye look. Check it out:

A quick run down of the makeup used for this look, in addition to the mascara and liner:

  • Pixi H20 Skintint in Cream
  • Serenity + Scott Pressed Powder Foundation in Fair
  • Laura Geller Baked Blush in Bora Bora
  • Serenity + Scott blush in The Hamptons for contouring
  • LA Splash Lip Couture in Rose Garden on lips
  • Ofra Cosmetics Eyeshadow Primer
  • Serenity + Scott 9-pan Eye Shadow Palette (collaboration with Samantha Reilly)
  • Serenity + Scott Brow Gel in Golden Blonde

The first time I used this mascara, it was a big fail for me. I kept having to take a lash and brow comb to my lashes to try and get them separated, because they were clumping together from how much mascara is deposited at the base of the lashes.

With this look, the mascara was a little easier to apply because I went slow and patiently, understanding the directions. But it didn’t really give me length, and I still had to manipulate my lashes a little bit to get them to a place where I was comfortable. I curled my lashes prior to application, but I feel like you can’t tell with this mascara.

The liner was a breeze to use. I love the control I have with it across my eye, and how the deposit of color is so pigmented.

Both wore fantastic all day, until I took them off at the end of the night, going more than 12 hours. The liner barely smudged in my inner corner, where I usually have smudging/rubbing off.

Of these two products, I really prefer Intensify Me! over The Super Sizer. Mascara is such a personal preference, because everyone has different lashes – mine are thin and not long, while some have long and thick lashes. We all have different needs for our lashes. So this mascara might work for you but I do prefer softer bristles that are a more fluffy brush, giving me more separation, volume and length. Something like Covergirl Flamed Out (a Holy Grail mascara for me!), or even the new Full Lash Bloom, which I recently bought and tried.

According to the brand website, the mascara retails for around $6.85 and the eyeliner for around $8. The mascara is also available in a waterproof formula. Direct links to the product purchase pages are at the top of the post. I’m not sure when we’ll see these in stores.

What do you think? Are The Super Sizer and Intensify Me! two eye goodies that you’ll be trying out when they launch?! I’d love to hear what you think!

    I need that mascara in a bad way!

    • BeautyJudy

      It’s popping up in Walgreens and drug stores!

  • http://www.mynewestaddiction.com/ Laura

    I definitely want that liner! It looks so interesting.

    • BeautyJudy

      It is such a neat tip!

    Those eye shadow colors… gorgeous. 😀 I don’t think I’ll be able to make that mascara work, but I definitely want to try the liner 🙂

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Honey! You would rock the liner!

    What a great duo!

    • BeautyJudy

      I especially love that liner!

  • FabZilla_Kath

    Cant wait to try this duo. Hope to have better results w/ the mascara

    • BeautyJudy

      I hope you do too! Everyone has different mascara needs – I need a fluffy brush 🙂

    I have the same problem with my semi-hooded eyes and making a cat eye. I actually preferred the mascara to the eyeliner. I didn’t have the clumping problem you did, though.

    • BeautyJudy

      I’m glad this mascara worked for you!

  • marciaf

    I didn’t realize these weren’t out yet. I think the mascara sounds like it needs to be practiced with.

    • BeautyJudy

      I actually need to update – yesterday I saw a display of the mascara at Walgreens!! But the materials I got with the products said I was one of first to try this. So keep an eye out! Maybe I could practice with the mascara but there are other CG mascaras that work well for me in a few swipes without effort – I’d rather those!

    That liner looks SO cool! I love your eye look!

    • BeautyJudy

      Thank you, Brooke!

  • http://loveforlacquer.com/ loveforlacquer

    Ohhh I love the look of the liner! Its SO black!

    • BeautyJudy

      I know, I love it!

  • http://www.notesfrommydressingtable.com/ Erika

    I really like the mascara but am so so on the liner, as I am not usually a liquid liner girl. I will say, tho that this liner is the easiest liquid I have ever used and I was most successful with it.

    • BeautyJudy

      I’m glad you liked the mascara! I think liquid liner takes some getting used to especially when it is bold!

  • http://makeupbykim-porter.com/blog Kim Porter

    This liner looks great.

    • BeautyJudy

      I am impressed by it!

  • http://libbyspinkvanity.blogspot.com Kimberly

    I love your EOTD look. I have been curious about this mascara. I think I will pass on it because I like a mascara that thickens my lashes. Thanks for the great review!

    • BeautyJudy

      I am so glad there are others who love it, but it just isn’t for me. There are other really great CG mascara I love!

  • http://www.beautybymissl.com/ beautybymissl

    I have to try that liner!
    Btw you look really pretty!

    • BeautyJudy

      Thank you so much! <3

  • Cindy Ingalls

    I am very intrigued by the liner. It really seems to apply so nicely.

    • BeautyJudy

      I’m really impressed with the pigment and flow of it!

  • TinaBowling

    I’m looking forward to trying out the mascara. Great reviews!

    • BeautyJudy

      I hope you love it

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    I totally ignored the overly complicated directions on the mascara and applied it as I would any other mascara, and I have the most perfectly defined lashes that I’ve ever had from any mascara. In fact, I get the fanned out, each lash perfectly separated look that I love. I don’t know if it’s a quality control issue coz I’ve seen other bloggers who didn’t get great results from the mascara too, but I have definitely lucked out with this one. It has even replaced my YSL Faux Cils Mascara!

    • BeautyJudy

      I didn’t see the directions the first time I used it, which was probably why it was such a fail for me, lol! The second time I went at it a bit more gingerly, so I was able to make it work. But like I said, mascara is such an individual thing because we have different needs – hence so many brushes and formulas! I’m so glad this worked for you!
