Summer makeup options-Covergirl Clean Matte BB cream and Supersizer Fiber lash mascara

These products were sent to me for review.

Summer’s coming. I tend to change my makeup routine with the changing of the seasons-what about you?  In the warmer months, I tend to lighten up on the face products but keep my lashes lush.  My skin is oily even in my 40-something years, and while I still don’t quite understand that-I’m glad to have a product like this matte bb cream to keep me looking fresh all day long.

I have to say after using this product for 2 weeks, I do like it.  Does it last all day on me?  Yes but I still need to blot and sometimes reapply as I do have breakthrough after 6-7 hours of wear.  I don’t consider that  negative….I don’t expect a BB cream to ‘hold’ for 8+ hours.  I find setting this with powder does help it stay longer but I still need to blot.  The color match is great for my skin tone and if I do tan at all this year, I can add a bronzer to this (or my cover fx drops).

The Covergirl Supersizer Fiber Mascara is my latest ‘mascara wardrobe addition.  I’m no stranger to Fiber mascaras-I have used Cherry Blooms, and Younique’s 3D Moonstruck mascara and liked them both.  The difference here?  The afore mentioned products are 2 steps while Covergirl has 1 step.

Discover 400% more volume and get the look of long, dark, amplified lashes with Super Sizer
Fibers Mascara. Our specialized formula contains built-in fibers for the ultimate false-lash
extension effect.

I have used this product (als0) for 2 weeks.  Yes, I like it.  Do I like it as much as my Rimmel Wonderfull Mascara?  No. It’s great for grabbing lashes and lifting ….and it coats my lashes like a dream.  But I don’t see the volume that I expected.  Were my expectations too high? Maybe.  I don’t notice enough fibers either?  The wand is tapered-wider at the top and then tapering down.  I find it easy to work with.  Formula is on the wet side but doesn’t transfer to my browbone or lid (hooray!).  If you are looking for a mascara with a bit of lift, I’d try this one (and it’s not hard on the wallet either).

Overall, I like these products enough to continue using them throughout the summer.  The BB cream will more than likely be a repurchase for me too (I love a product that is light AND mattifies).

Do you change up your routine for the summer -cosmetically speaking?
