Review: CoverGirl Clump Crusher Extensions mascara

CoverGirl Clump Crusher Extensions

CoverGirl has finally delved into the world of fibre mascaras, and let me tell you, they’ve done it right.

Expanding on their ever-growing Lashblast range, this spring they brought out the Clump Crusher. The big draw with this mascara was that the little rubbery spokes (is that what they’re called?) of the brush were spaced closer together than the average mascara clump, making clumps physically impossible. (If that’s not a practical use of math and science, I don’t know what is.)

Anyway, I tried the original Clump Crusher and loved it. It defined my lashes, added volume, and was just generally lovely. However, it wasn’t the best in the length department, and I felt the need to layer a fibre mascara (namely Maybelline Illegal Lengths) on top of it.

With Clump Crusher Extensions, they’ve kept the epic brush but tweaked the formula. The fibres in the mascara are so tiny that you can barely see them clinging to the brush (I can pick one out in the photo above). When you apply it, it adds some serious length to lashes and is fantastic at separating.

The first time I used this, I chucked my old Maybelline Illegal Lengths in the trash (it was due to be ditched anyway, but I was that impressed with this new mascara!). The Maybelline fibre mascara adds length, but sometimes if you try to build the tips too much, you end up with weird, twiggy, spidery lashes. (I’ve experienced this problem with the Imju Fiberwig Mascara too, which I still loved for a very long time). CoverGirl’s amazing Clump Crusher brush and teeny, tiny fibres do away with the twig-spider-leg look and makes lashes look long, separated, and…human.

The only thing is that the formula seems to have suffered in the volume department, but I’m willing to sacrifice that for the crazy length and separation. I’m just loving it.

And I picked it up for $8 on sale! Whee!

If you’re on the hunt for an awesome new mascara to try, CoverGirl Clump Crusher Extensions is pretty fantastic and definitely worth a try!
