My thoughts: To be honest when I first received this, I wasn't expecting much since it's not waterproof. Non-waterproof mascaras tend to weigh my Asian lashes down. I'll go into this later... hehe~ So when I received this, the first thing I did is look at the wand. How cute is the wand!... lol~ I fell in love with the color, purple, and yes I'm that simple. Little things make me happy... wheee~ Then I looked at the wand and realized how thick it is. I'm so use to thin wands that I got scared. There's a pro and con with using thick wands or at least for me. I noticed since it's thick, it's very easy to apply to my lashes. Since it's so thick, I noticed mascara marks on my eyelids and the bottom of my eyes... lol~ It might just be me and needing some practice. :X I also noticed the thickness of the wand makes it harder to get to close to the lashes close to the eye.
The next thing I looked at is how it's suppose to give you volume and length. I need both of that!... lol~ I definitely noticed length. It also gave me volume. I was really happy!... wheee~ :)
Now going back to non-waterproof mascara... I was actually pretty impressed it didn't weigh my lashes down. It might be because the mascara didn't get close to the lashes next to the eyes. I'm not too sure, but I would imagine the waterproof one would be amazing if they had one. I tried one and two coats, and they both didn't weigh my lashes down. I did noticed with two coats my lashes got bunched together though. :/
Pros: * CoverGirl; mascaras experiences are good. * Cute colored wand. * Thick wand; quick to apply. * Gives volume and length. * Doesn't weigh lashes down. * Easy to take off since it's not waterproof.
Cons: * CoverGirl; most of their products are not good. * Not waterproof. * Thick wand; touches skin.
Would I buy this again: Yes. Rating: 4/5 Tobey's Paws
I bought this long time ago. I found the post on this haul and cannot believe I bought this in January 2009!... eek~ :X Anyone who knows me well knows I have hand cream/lotion everywhere. Like a lot of people carry lip balms, I carry hand lotions... lol~ This lotion was kept in my car and finally finished it. When it comes to Ulta products, I'm not the most keen on it. I never found Ulta products that good but this hand lotion is pretty decent. It's very moisturizing even for my dry winter skin!
Would I buy this again: Yes.
That's the only thing I finished last month. How sad is that!... lol~ :X
