Today I bring you another review courtesy of Covergirl and *Influenster.
If you missed my last post featuring a product I received via this site, Influenster is a website where anyone can sign up for free, and have the opportunity to have great products sent to you (free!) to try out
So with that out of the way, let’s get into the products!
I was SO excited to get this box, because I really like the original Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara, and assumed I’d like this as well. This box also came with the Perfect Point Plus liner in “Black Onyx”, which is not a product I’m familiar with, so that was even more exciting!
Let’s start out with the Covergirl Super Sizer Fibers Mascara.
Right off the bat, the first thing I noticed is that the wand is exactly the same as the original supersizer.
(Original is on the left, Super Sizer Fibers on the right.)
This was not a wand I imagined myself liking, as I typically gravitate towards really full natural fiber brushes. I was pleasantly surprised how much this little plastic wand actually did for my lashes.

It gives me great length, but not much in the way of volume, which is typically my end goal with mascaras. And that is what makes the new Super Sizer Fibers mascara so amazing. I not only get the length that I loved from the original, but I get easily triple the volume with this than I was ever able to get with the original.
As you can tell, this does fantastic things for my lashes. I’ve never used a mascara that has made my lashes look this incredible, and I never thought I’d say that about a fiber mascara.
As for the fibers themselves, they are completely undetectable on the wand itself, and have zero fallout throughout the day.
The only bad thing I have to say about this mascara is that I really don’t like to use it on my lower lashes, and I’ve experienced a lot of smudging and I prefer a waterproof mascara for my lower lashes. On my top lashes, I have zero smudging or flaking throughout the day.
So to wrap up my thoughts about this mascara, I really like it and if you are looking for full, voluminous, long lashes, look no further and pick this up!
I don’t want this post to be super long, so we’ll just talk about the Perfect Point Plus eyeliner really quickly.
Initially, I was not impressed with this. I like the self-sharpening aspect, and how small the actual liner is, making it really easy to get a nice, sharp line. But, this claims to be smudge free and definitely isn’t.
It looks rich and black on the eye, and applies beautifully to both the lashline and the waterline. For me, it really didn’t stick around long in the waterline and began to gather in my inner corners, which really wasn’t attractive. So for me, I don’t recommend this for the waterline. But if you like using pencil liner on the lashline, maybe give this a go.
(This was about 15 minutes after application, and it’s already beginning to wear off.)
Another issue I noticed with this pencil is that once it’s clicked up, you cannot click it down, so don’t get crazy with this and try to see how much product you’ve got in it, because you’ll regret it.
And that will be it for this review! I hope you’ve enjoyed it, and if you have, please be sure to sign up for email notifications of my future posts!
