Covergirl Total Tease Mascara Review

Hey tootsies!

Before I dive into this mascara, I thought I would remind you all of my two tried-and-true overall mascara tips guaranteed to work with ANY mascara.

  1. NEVER “pump” your mascara. This incorporates air into the bottle and will dry-out the product faster.
  2. Treat a new mascara like a fine wine. Open it, let it breathe. Obviously don’t leave the wand out or anything but give mascara like a week or two until you start judging it. I find that a newly opened mascara is never at it’s best right off the bat. It needs some time to ripen up and blossom.

Now back to the Covergirl Total Tease.

 

PACKAGING

I Gotta love the baby pink and black color combo. It reminds me alot of the Benefit Roller Lash in that regard!

WAND

The wand on this is pretty damn weird. The bristles are rubber, fairly short and spaced out. The bristles do not wrap all the way around the wand, either. On the side where there aren’t bristles, they put in a tiny bump at the tip of the brush with two little lash combs. I think the idea is the comb allows you to get into tiny places, like the inner and outer most lashes.

FORMULA

Sorry about the RBF

This is a wetter formula for sure and it does not dry super shiny. In fact it dries fairly matte and leaves the lashes feeling pretty soft. The product itself goes on the lashes fairly thick and goopy but because the wand is so separating, it works.

APPLICATION

I don’t find myself using the little comb on the end too much when I apply this product. I mostly use the other side and enjoy the separation it gives. I definitely like to wiggle this one back and forth between the lashes to ensure an even coat.

WEAR

Here’s what this mascara looked like at the end of the day:

It looked pretty nice throughout the day, albeit a bit scraggly at the tips of my lashes. It also doesn’t hold a curl wonderfully, but it definitely wasn’t the worst in that department.

OVERALL

I really like this mascara. It isn’t my absolute favorite but I am always hard-pressed to find a mascara that looks nice on it’s own. Most of the time, I have to use two different mascaras to achieve the length, separation and fullness that I want but this one does a pretty good job on it’s own. It is a bit more “gloppy” then I like on a day-to-day basis but sometimes I need those ka-pow lashes and this stuff delivers on that front.

    Can I just say that I have read your blog for a while now and agree with your reviews 100%! Also, it’s nice to meet someone else who uses more than one mascara (maybe I learned that from you?) and waits a few weeks to judge a mascara, I scream at the youtubers I follow through the screen in their “first impression” videos of mascara! I will definitely try this mascara because I love the original “super sizer” and maybe together they would be a good pair? Thanks! PS Sometimes I wish I was back in high school burning the crap out of my hair with “frost and glow” hair coloring while watching DDG with Amy or you and all the Stauffer’s. It was a simpler time;)

        Oh Siera. Using two (or sometimes three) mascaras in the only way to live life. This one in particular would work well with a volumizing formula like L’Oreal Voluminous. And I also wish I was back in high school, burning my scalp with bleach at the Stauffer’s and drinking buckets of DC. One time, Lacey and I actually left a giant clump of it in the back of my hair and had to wash it out in the locker room before a boys basketball game. True Story.
