Looks great and works as advertised with no clumps
on December 23, 2012
Aging baby boomers, my wife and I don't get out as much as we once did, but we do still go out occasionally. My wife has always used very light makeup, but she still uses mascara to highlight her eyes and long lashes. When she developed a slight tremble in her hands a couple of years ago, she was concerned about applying mascara for fear of injuring her eyes, so I volunteered to apply it. Surprisingly, she accepted my offer. One of her biggest gripes about mascara is its tendency to clump and look messy, so she was glad to try Clump Crusher.
The product comes in a sealed bottle with a separate brush that you can see through the packaging. The brush is slightly curved at the applicator end, which has dozens of very fine bristles about 1.5 mm long. The round brush's handle is about 0.9" in diameter, which makes it easy to hold. That's the obvious stuff.
In use, we both appreciated how the fine bristles separated and coated her lashes evenly with no noticeable clumping. I applied one coat of the mascara to both her eyes around noon yesterday, then we left the house for about seven hours to deliver Christmas presents and have dinner at a restaurant. When we returned, we both examined her eyes and found no smudging or flaking, even with a few tears shed at one stop. Later that evening, my wife removed the mascara with a washcloth and warm soapy water. It removed fairly easily with no visible traces left.
Overall, the Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara appears to be a fine product that works as advertised. My wife is sold on the product.
