Covergirl Star Wars Limited Edition Light Side Mascara in Very Black
Unleash the light within using COVERGIRL Star Wars The Super Sizer by lashblast Waterproof Mascara! Our new Light Side lash styler transforms even small lashes and gives 400% more corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned-out lashes.
The quote “Luminous beings are we” from Star Wars: The Force Awakens is printed on the collectible mascara.
I first hauled this mascara in my Covergirl Star Wars Collection (here) but only got around to using it just recently (had a lot of other mascaras to go through first).
On paper, this isn’t exactly my type of mascara as I prefer a large brush, and yet somehow this slim, short-bristled mascara just works! The limited edition Star Wars (Light Side) packaging although pretty cool, is unnecessarily huge (for no apparent reason since the “lash styler” is so slim).
It’s also tapered and has bristles on all sides. Such an interesting shape and different than what I’m used to, but like I said, somehow it just works. It coats every lash, defines, lengthens, and curls them sufficiently.
I was pretty in love with this mascara from the moment I swiped it on… until the time came to remove it. Even my trusty Clean & Clear Makeup Remover (reviewed – here) was no match for this mascara! I pretty much tried everything else in my arsenal but nothing worked. Most of it was gone, but what was left was enough to clump my lashes together and refused to budge (triggering my OCD). That’s when it dawned on me that this thing is Waterproof and even says so on the tube itself (see first photo). As such, I will refrain from using it until I get a decent waterproof makeup remover. That said, I’ve used it twice or thrice before but that’s pretty much it. In general, I’m not big on waterproof mascara because when I was younger, my mom told me that waterproof mascara can damage (read: break) my lashes so I’ve always just avoided them. Who knows? This might be the one that changes everything. Aside from the hassle of removing it, the brush and the formula is really good!
