Sophistication Sunday - CoverGirl Clump Crusher Mascara

My Sophistication Muse, Audrey Hepburn

Sophistication Sunday revolves around my favorite beauty finds, techniques, fashion trends and anything else "pretty" that catches my eye. I look forward to sharing these ideas with you and hope to hear your suggestions and feedback as well! I am no expert at beauty or fashion by any means but perhaps that will make my thoughts more relatable. Simply put, I'm just a girly-girl navigating my way through the fabulous finds I come across.

Hello everyone!  I wanted to hop on quick and write a beauty post about my new favorite mascara the CoverGirl Clump Crusher.

I know I've said before that CoverGirl isn't currently one of my favorite makeup lines.  I really like the prices (obviously) but as far as drugstore brands goes I've had much better luck with Revlon and Maybelline.  CoverGirl is very hit and miss for me.  Luckily this time, it is a BIG hit!

So many people LOVE the CoverGirl Lash Blast mascara (in the big orange tube) but I never understood the hype.  Like Maybelline's famous Great Lash mascara I thought it was just... "meh."  I didn't see what the big deal was about lash blast other than the fact that it was the first drugstore mascara I saw that had the rubbery bristles.  

However, I got a little adventurous the other day and decided to spend $5 on the newest CoverGirl mascara.  CoverGirl describes this product as:

A breakthrough in no-clump mascara. Get 200% more volume and zero clumps. Features an innovative double-sided brush with lash-loading and clump-combing zones to crush clumps.

I am SO glad I took a chance on this! When I used it for the first time I was amazed when I could keep coating, and coating, and reapplying.  My lashes didn't stick together, they didn't clump... the application was amazing!  Another great bonus is that it doesn't flake off throughout the day and it doesn't leave my lashes feeling stiff or dry.  Put one down in the win column for CoverGirl!

I also want to mention that the brush is great for bottom lashes and I love a mascara that works well for upper and lower lashes.  

Have you tried the clump crusher?  Will you give it a shot?

I understand the pain of trying new mascaras with constant disappointment. Affordable to pricey (Drugstores, Home Shopping Clubs, Department Stores, etc.), over the past 2 years I haven't repurchased any of them! However, a recent purchase from Ulta, a growth enhancing mascara is a keeper! * It sounds like CoverGirl's Clump Crusher is worth a try! Thanks Christi!

Looking for a coat rack/stand led me to your site and as I was looking around I notice this post. I myself am always looking for a better mascara that doesn't clump, flake and smear and have tried various high price ones... some good and some not good at all. I have also tried drug store ones and have found fairly good ones. I am currently using L'Oreal Telescopic mascara and love it. The only complaint is that the wand is cheap and not very sturdy at the end where the brush is. Since this post was done in 2013 I am not sure they sell Cover Girl's Clump Crusher anymore, but I will have to check it out. Thanks for sharing.
