Highlight with EyeLights

Cover Girl EyeLights MascaraHey girls!  So yesterday I told you about my new fav addition to my makeup bag for this summer.  Well how perfect would it be to have a just-as-fabulous mascara that compliments your shimmering eyeliner?  It would be great, right? Mascara definitely helps to define the eyes and there’s nothing flirtier than batting those sexy eyelashes. Well how many of you have ever tried Cover Girl EyeLights Mascara?  It launched earlier this year and with spokesmodels such as Rihanna adorning their advertisements, the little drugstore mascara has gained much popularity.  Especially with me!

Now I have to tell you, I am a total mascara FREAK!  Like a real mascara addict!  It is the one thing I absolutely cannot leave the house without.  If I don’t have mascara on I might as well just walk around with a bag on my head.  Yes, it is THAT bad!  But just like some of you out there who can’t leave the house without a little lip gloss, I can’t leave the house without a little mascara.  Now I have probably tried every single mascara known to man and definitely have my favorites, which I will be sharing with you at some point on Big City Beauty.  So I’d kind of like to think of myself as a mascara expert.  So when Cover Girl came out with a mascara that they claimed would make your eye color appear brighter I just had to try it!  I have brown eyes.  Not green, or hazel, or anything fun like that.  Just brown!  So I’m thinking that if there is a way to make my boring brown eyes stand out, I am going to be the first person in line.

Cover Girl EyeLights Mascara actually comes in four different shades: Brown, Blue, Green, and Hazel eyes.  Each shade contains different light-reflecting metallics that are supposed to make your eyes appear 4x brighter.  Now I have to be honest.  I love love love this mascara, but it definitely didn’t make my eyes look like the girl in the picture.  However, and this is a HUGE however, I still absolutely recommend it!  Now you’re probably thinking that I’m crazy but let me just tell you why this mascara has reached the top of my favorite mascaras list.  First of all, the “Exact brush” is amazing and really lives up to its name.  Sometimes I even reuse the brush with some of my other mascara formulas because it really gets every lash and gives great definition.  Secondly, the metallic shimmer in the mascara is so much fun!  It may not have made my eye color appear brighter, but it definitely made my eyelashes noticeable.  And not in an over-done way, it’s a very subtle shimmer that definitely makes for flirty lashes while watching the sunset.  And third, because I have thinner lashes and love to layer my mascara, the formulation can definitely be used in two to three coats.  Now for drugstore mascara, I’d have to say that it’s absolutely worth the money!

Have any of you tried out this mascara?  If you have, how did it work out for you?  Let me know!  I’d love to hear your feedback.

Until next time ladies…  xoxo
