If one frequently spends one’s weekends watching America’s Next Top Model marathons, one is likely to eventually fall for the not-so-subtle marketing of CoverGirl products. For quite some time now I’ve been curious about the brand’s Exact Eyelights products, due to the fact that the contestants on ANTM all have bright sparkly eyes whenever they wear the stuff. Nevermind the fact that they are all models who were probably selected for just such a feature.
A couple of weeks ago I bought a tube of CoverGirl Exact Eyelights mascara in Black Sapphire, the color specifically designed to make blue eyes pop. I can’t lie, I’m usually a bit of a mascara snob, happily laying down thirty bucks for a tube of high-end stuff. But I was pleasantly surprised by my purchase.
So far the mascara hasn’t clumped, hasn’t flaked, and hasn’t irritated my sensitive eyes. It doesn’t melt or fade, even after an 11 hour work day. And I think it does make my eyes look a little bluer and brighter. Last week one of my coworkers told me that my eyes looked super blue.
Not bad for a drugstore mascara.
