today’s post is a review of Covergirls Exact Eyelights Eye-Brightening Mascara that comes in four different colours to enhances the colour of your eyes.
-Black Ruby for Green Eyes
-Black Gold for Hazel Eyes
-Black Pearl for Brown Eyes
-and Black Sapphire for Blue Eyes
Unfortunately we don’t have Covergirl here in Ireland, but like the previous product I reviewed a friend picked it up in the US for me a few months ago. I had previously tried this product in Ruby Gold (for hazel eyes) however in the summer months my eyes are more green, so I decided to give this one a whirl.
This mascara works as within the product are little speckles of colour which act as a counter balance to make your eyes appear brighter and enhance the colour (in this instance green). Of course this is only going to have the desired effect if you already have for example green in your eyes. For Instance If I wore the Exact Eyelights for blue eyes my eyes are not suddenly going to appear blue.
Covergirl states that this mascara has a “patented No Clump brush technology” which I would have to agree with, having said that the formulation in my opinion doesn't really do anything... so if your looking for volume or lengthening this probably isn't for you. I usually apply my mascara of choice first to add length, then apply the Exact Eyelights on top. The formulation doesn't really bother be because that’s not what I brought this for, I wanted this because I honestly do think it brings out the green in my eyes.
This particular colour (Black Ruby) I had not tried before but I have found that it does differ from the gold. Whereas the gold was a black mascara with particles of gold within it, this ruby is more of a deep brown ruby colour.
Overall I still like this product for what it does to my eyes it definitely enhances the colour, and I still might re purchase in the future even though the formulation isn't what I would usually go for in a mascara!
