Covergirl The Super Sizer Mascara Review

I'm a bzzagent member and was invited to participate in a campaign for The Super Sizer Mascara by Covergirl. The purpose in participating in a campaign is to provide a review that is true to what you think about the product. This helps out the company. These are my real thoughts.
I use to use the Covergirl LashBlast mascara back in 2007. I can't completely remember why I stopped using it. It was a well liked mascara by many.
But I do know, I started looking for paraben free beauty products. Almost all of my daily used makeup is paraben free.
Now, when it comes to a mascara I use daily, I won't buy it if it has parabens. I find it very easy to find cheap, paraben free mascara, so that's what I buy. But I keep in account that mascara goes on your eyelashes, not your skin, so it's a little different. I also make a ''paraben exception'' if a product is very good and used a few times a year. For example, you're at a wedding and need something really good. If it has parabens in it, I can be okay with using it for a few hours. I'm not that overboard :)
I was therefore willing to give this mascara a try and I really didn't expect much.
I really like it. It is the only mascara to hold a curl and not smudge but still be easy to take off. Keep in mind that everyone has different lashes. For my thick, straight, half Italian lashes, it does them some good.
The CoverGirl Super Sizer Mascara gives you 400% more volume for fuller lashes. Opthalmologically tested, suitable for those who wear contacts.
The brush is really a hit and miss. I love how thin it is. I love that it adds thickness of mascara to the bottom of the lashes, to make them fuller. Unfortunately, I find the bristles are spaced too far apart. This means that it group together my lashes to have the appearance of thicker, but less lashes. I can get around this by using a disposable mascara brush to comb out the grouped together lashes.
Other than the parabens, the formula is great. It can have have clumps, but nothing horrible. It can be built up to huge lashes or kept very natural looking. It hold a curl for hours, even in more humid weather. It doesn't flake or smudge. It doesn't transfer to my under eye through the day. It does a nice job of lengthening as well as volume. I'm also VERY excited that it doesn't make my sensitive eyes burn and itch.
