Mascara Review-- CoverGirl's NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara

Hey Lovelies!!

I finally tried-out a new mascara, yaay! My favorite beauty product is- by far- mascara, so I was super excited when I picked-up this new one.


CoverGirl's New NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara, $9.99 at drugstores. 

What it claims: 
- Our innovative mousse formula exchanges select synthetic polymers with natural beeswax to help make stunning volume feel luxuriously light on your lashes. 
- Removes easily with soap and water. 

Let's take a look!

I have to admit--- when I very first put on this mascara, I immediately wanted to return it. I was just so NOT impressed. But after returning to it a few times, I've learned it's little quirks and how to make it look great, haha! (Also, I think that mascara formulas in general need to be introduced to air to really perform properly-- even with my Voluminous, it sucks if I apply it right after opening the package. Just a thought!)

First of all, the formula is AMAZING. Not too wet/dry/cakey, and it layers pretty well. You can really tell that the synthetics have been replaced-- it's not crunchy or heavy AT ALL. Yes! And, even with the moisturizing, it doesn't smudge throughout the day, and definitely no flaking.

The brush is ok... it's a molded brush, so it does a decent job of separating, but honestly it's not anything remarkable.  The formula is the major kicker here~

You'll notice that it is a tad clumpy, but only if you get really close. But seriously-- see the difference between the 1 coat and 3 coats?! I'll tell you the trick--
** Let the mascara sit on your lashes for about 10-ish seconds before applying another coat. It allows the formula to dry, but not too much that it gets too clumpy. Ta-da!

I wish this mascara had more length, but as it's marketed as a volumizing mascara, I'll let that slide. 

In a flash!~
A great lightweight, natural feeling mascara. Not as much drama as I would prefer, but a nice daytime choice.

What do you think? Have you tried this? Anything from the NatureLuxe line? Lemme know!!

Until Next Time--

  1. I love this mascara! I've tried it in waterproof and non, and I think I prefer the regular. I love the color it gives my lashes and also the major volume. You're right- length isn't as much as I'd like it to be, but it's still good.

  2. Great review! Luv the pics! But does it leave little mascara dots halfway through the day? I really wanted to buy this but if I have to check in mirror every couple hours then I'd rather not..

  3. Huge fan of this mascara. Its light and it doesnt flake after the day like others do. I love the color and the feel. Highly recommended.

  4. This mascara is amazing for a natural, more defined look, not if you want a dramatic, false lash effect. I found that it gave me more length than volume.

  5. have you tried the new clump crusher? how does it compare to the natureluxe one? i have short, stubbornly straight lashes and i can't decide which mascara to buy....???
