COVERGIRL VoxBox Product Review

I recently received these full size COVERGIRL products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

If you follow me on Instagram, I posted this picture early this week, giving me a few days to try these and give an honest opinion. So listed below are the products:

The Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara: Gives you 400% more corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned out lashes. Our amazing Lash Styler transforms even small lashes— just twirl as you apply it to your lashes for an instantly Super Sized lash look.

Intensify Me! Liquid Liner: Get the control of a pencil with the intensity of a liquid eyeliner for beautifully defined eyes every time. Our all-new paddle-shaped tip gives you two looks in one—thick and dramatic or thin and elegant. The intense black formula glides on smoothly and dries quickly for instant drama. 

As shown above, the top is a before application picture and below are two pictures after application. The only products I have on my eyes are these two products. 

The Super Sizer By Lashblast Mascara: 4 out of 5 stars.
My natural lashes are short and thin, that without mascara they're pretty much invisible. For the most part I love how thin and small the brush is so you have easier access to the inner and outer corner lashes without accidentally smudging that mascara wand somewhere on your face. The thin bristles also gives great length, which I'm thankful for, however I gave this a 4 out of 5 stars rating because I wish the bristles were a little bit longer or closed together, that way it gives me volume as well by combing my lashes thoroughly. I can definitely achieve that by the use another mascara on top, but it would be a 5-star product if I can do it all with just this one mascara. Overall, it's still a good product and I will continue to use it.

The Intensify Me! Liquid Liner: 2 out of 5 stars.
I was quite disappointed with this product. Let me first of all say, the 2-stars is for the easy flow and the intense and very opaque black. Other than that, I didn't enjoy using this product, all for one reason. This "new paddle" that is shown above and basically the selling point of this product, is sooo rough! I had a hard time trying to apply this because every time I swiped the paddle on my lid, it hurt to the point where my eyes will start to get watery, making it much more difficult to apply. I even tried to apply it with a light-hand--the product still came out really nice an dark, however it did not help with the pain. I've used a lot of different eyeliners, never have I come across one that would was so rough. I like the concept of being able to create a thin or thick line with this product, however they need to change the material of the paddle to something that is more gentle on the eyes.
