Some of you may remember how I raved about the original Super Sizer Mascara last year. I didn’t think Covergirl could do any better! And then they did…
As soon as I saw marketing for the Super Sizer Fibers Mascara – a sister version with built-in fibers – I knew I had to give it a try. When I spotted them in store for the first time, I hesitated for a total of 0.1 seconds before adding it to my basket. OK, I did take a moment to think “do I really NEED mascara right now”? But sometimes our wants overpower our needs, and in this case I was (dramatically) dying to test the new version of my favourite mascara.
I’ve tried a couple different brands of fiber mascaras in the past, but until now they’ve mostly been a two-step process. One tube with mascara and the other with fibers. Does anyone remember when they were white? I still don’t understand that concept. It was a nightmare trying to cover up the look of dandruff on my eyelashes. Maybe that was a mascara primer…I’m not totally sure. Regardless, I like that the Super Sizer Fibers Mascara is an easy to use, one-step product…that’s dark. I got mine in Very Black. It’s never cumbersome and fits into my regular beauty routine.
The wand is exactly the same as the original version, with short plastic bristles perfect for gripping at the root and combing through lashes. The new formula apparently has 29,000 fibers in every tube to achieve 400% more volume. That’s a lot of volume! The great thing is I never notice the fibers falling out of place onto my face or in my eyes. I’m a contact wearer so this is a pretty big deal for me!
Fun fact: When the lady at the cash register told me she was wearing this mascara, I actually didn’t believe her because they looked like fake lashes or extensions.
It doesn’t thicken my lashes quite as much as I would expect, but I am more interested in length than volume, and this mascara does not disappoint in that department. The fibers grab on to the tips of my lashes to add even more extension. I’m left with the look of long, natural falsies. It’s perfect for every day wear but can be built up for a more glam look if desired.
It’s official! After almost a year of pure devotion to the original Super Sizer Mascara, I have a new favourite.
