I received a Covergirl matte lipstick and mascara from the new Katy Kat Collection to test from BzzAgent.
You can find the review for the lipstick here. The mascara I received was in the Very Black colour.
I found this mascara has a bit of a learning curve to it. The brush is different than other brushes I have tried. The bristles spiral around the wand and I find that it picks up too much mascara each and every time. If I were to apply directly from the wand without wiping off the excess mascara, I would have very wet, clumpy looking lashes. So I have learned to wipe the excess mascara off before applying. After doing so, I am quite pleased with the results.
The mascara really does help to lengthen and add volume to my lashes. It even holds a bit of a curl without using a lash curler. I find it makes my eyes pop. It does not smudge or flake during the day and washes off amazingly easy with soap and water.
I am a fan of Covergirl mascaras but have to admit this is not one of my favourites just because of the brush and how it collects excess product.
