Effective, but intimidating
The packaging says that 4 out of 5 users saw the volumizing effect of this mascara, and count me as one of those four. I consider Covergirl as one of the pillars of the makeup world when it comes to mascara, and they do not disappoint with this one. The formula distributes evenly, does not clump (specially if you've learned not to pump your mascara wand) and keeps curled lashes up all day. It also lasts for a looooong time. I wear this when I know I'll need my lashes for than eight hours. I have walked 10,000 steps, sweated in this summer heat, and my oily skin going crazy, but I can trust this baby to not let me down. I took one star off because of the brush -- and to say that the marketing for this mascara is "because of the brush". It's scary and stiff, and I've hurt my lids whenever I'm in a hurry in applying this. The size of the brush also does not allow for an effective lower lash application. The original price is also a sore point for me, specially when you consider the best practice of disposing of your mascara after three months. It was a good experience, but I know other more comfortable mascaras for the same price.
