All right N&Kers, it’s time for another installment of N&K’s Mascara Funday*!
Today, Miss Nals will be reviewing Covergirl’s SuperSizer (Lashblast) 🔗.
Their website states “The Super Sizer Mascara gives you 400% more corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned out lashes. Our amazing Lash Styler transforms even small lashes— just twirl as you apply it to your lashes for an instantly Super Sized lash look. Opthalmologically tested, suitable for those who wear contact lenses”.Click here to read that description on their site
Reviews on their site 🔗are basically favourable at 88% (1161 reviews). Covergirl has suggested they contact Customer Service to remedy an unfavorable situation, if a reviewer mentions it. People might respond to this with of course they would because they don’t want bad PR. But, it takes time to read each review and respond accordingly°.
Makeup Alley reviews 🔗are also favourable in scores (218 reviews, 68%) but comments are varied°.
Getting back to the N&K review…
Yes! (And even at the corners with the stumpier baby hairs.)
Product clumps with >2 layers.
I curl before and after applying mascara**. Mascara holds the curl well through out the day.
Product colour is black, which helps the look of fuller lashes. But since it clumps with >2 layers, there’s not a lot of thickening effect.
Due to flared brush with bristles in a spiral formation (like DNA or pineapple seeds), application is best when you follow instructions on the package.
✓Mascara didn’t interfere with my contact lenses. ✓This particular tube had staying power and was waterproof.
×But it stuck on like a SOB. I use an oil-based facial cleanser (such as Julep’s Love Your Bare Face🔗). I tried all-sorts like soaking my lashes with Julep cleanser then gently rubbing to lift up product. I used makeup remover before cleanser… And then tried after. I tried to triple wash my lashes. And there were days that I didn’t get all of it off. I still haven’t found the best method because each time is slightly different.
This is not a good mascara for a newbie/novice due to the application instructions and difficulty of removal.
For the experienced mascara-ista… I probably would not recommend it again due to difficulty of removal and clumping properties.

° To give you guys an idea, it probably takes Kells and I a couple hours to post and publish ONE post. Formatting, uploading pictures, viewing and re-editting take scads of time. Add additional time to take photos, picking topics and then writing. So, both N&K appreciate how much work goes into it. However, the varied comments on Makeup Alley give us pause. Why are comments different on the CoverGirl vs. MUA site? Hmmm…
** MUAs might balk at this double curling, as the curler could pull lashes out after mascara-ing. But I curl when mascara is dry as a bone. If you double curl, don’t do it wet!
