Mascara Monday: CoverGirl Queen volume mascara

| December 14, 2009 | 5 Comments

Nope, it’s not new. You probably haven’t seen any commercials for this mascara in a while….if ever. I am huge fan of CoverGirl’s Queen line. Did the mascara impress me? Hmm….

CoverGirl Queen Volume mascara

Price: 5 out of 5 ($7.00-ish at drugstores)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 2 out of 5
Overall: 3 out of 5

What it claims: The packaging…



The truth:
Eh…it’s not BAD.

What I loved about it: It gave a good amount of volume.

What I didn’t like: The wand was massive. I’m so not a fan of wands like this:

Overall: I didn’t have have high expectations for this baby. And I guess that’s a good thing because it really didn’t let me down. When I think of CoverGirl mascaras, my mind always flashes back to the fabulousness that is Lash Blast. CoverGirl got it right with that mascara. Don’t get me wrong, Queen isn’t “bad”. It’s just an average mascara. Now and days mascaras are vibrating and have funky wands and colors and well, it doesn’t look like CG Queen volume can compete.

The larger wand makes for difficult application. For ladies with smaller lids and lashes, y’all will endure somewhat of a struggle. This wand doesn’t work too well with getting in the corners either.

In the volumizing department, it fairs well. In fact, I was shocked at the amount of volume that I got. I didn’t see much length but the volume was enough for me. No real major problems either. *yawn* It works. It works well. But don’t don’t expect to be blown away. And if you’re looking for just a bit of volume and don’t need any tricks….you may like this one. But if you’re like me and want fireworks after applying a new mascara…NEXT!

Would I recommend it?: Only if you find it on sale or just have a general interest on how it works. I think there are better ones out there. But if you do end up getting it, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed?

What do you think about CoverGirl’s Queen volume? A fan?
