Covergirl Plumpify Blast Pro Mascara is a new Covergirl Spring 2016 permanent mascara releasing in drugstores now that promises “extreme plump and lift with 50x volume”.
As with most Covergirl mascara formulas, Plumpify Blast Pro isn’t really for me.
Covergirl Plumpify Blast Pro Mascara is Covergirl’s typical larger than life mascara with a club-like applicator that promises to make your lashes look incredibly full and long.
I’m a little immune to Covergirl Mascaras because they always look great in ads and commercials but I never get the results everyone seems to be getting. I think you might have to have longer, fuller lashes already to enjoy some of Covergirl’s formulas. I consider my lashes long but not sure I’d call them full.
This contains a new spiral rounded brush that promises to lift and plump lashes but technically I’m just trying to not poke my eye out when using it. I just find CG’s applicators are a little TOO large sometimes.
This isn’t a fiber formula but during removal it does seem to have some sort of tubing but I noticed no issues with flaking or smudging during the wear on my drier eyes. I would say I got fairly nice length from it but that length was light and fluttery which isn’t a look I personally go for. I like thicker, fuller, and longer versus fluttery and natural which is what Plumpify seems to do for my lashes. It separates lashes and draws them upwards and outwards producing a nice length that’s for sure. I just like a bit more drama myself you know? To me it kinda works the same as Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Mascara just with a different and larger brush. I will say the brush was a pain because I couldn’t quite reach the lashes at the inner corner of my eye.
It also proves a little bit of a pain to remove. I use a bi-phase eye makeup remover to remove my mascara and eye makeup and I had to keep saturating a cotton pad to get all of this off my lashes and still had some on as I headed in to cleanse my face. As far as I know this isn’t even a waterproof formula so if you have issues with smudging this might just be an awesome pick for you. However, there’s room for potential breakage if your lashes are a little whimpy or weak as removal isn’t necessarily easy.
Covergirl Plumpify Blast Pro Mascara just wasn’t dramatic enough for me sadly. It offered length but the advertised “extreme plump” action just wasn’t to be found.
Covergirl Plumpify Blast Pro Mascara is available now at drugstores.
