So I'm at CVS waiting for my refill of Albuterol (this weather is wreaking havoc on my lungs) and what do I spy in this weeks circular? I spy an ad for CoverGirl Exact Eyelights.
Designed to give you defined lashes with 4X brighter eyes.
Interesting…and just how will they do that?
The unique eye brightening formula combined with the patented no clump brush technology brings out the color of your eyes and gives you gorgeous clump-free lashes!
So you pick a color that compliments your natural eye color and voila you have instant brightness. Almay has something similar to this called Intense I-Color. Various eye makeup items that will enhance and compliment your natural hue.
The Eyelights (sounds like an old 50's all girl group) comes in 4 shades, Black Pearl for brown eyes, Black Ruby for green eyes, Black Sapphire for blue eyes and Black Gold for hazel eyes. The display comes with a color wheel to take all the guess work out of which color will work for you.
I figure it’s a colored Lash Exact mascara just not an obvious colored mascara. It just has a faint hint of color. So it’s kinda new but not really but it does have a pretty new package which I feel a strong need to have in my life.
I really like Lash Exact its right up there with my Max Factor Volume Couture, Lancome and Clinique. After being sucked in by the dark new Maybelline XXL packaging I was disappointed. It really didn't do much for me and the only time folks noticed my lashes was when I layered on my HG of the moment Max Factor Volume Couture.
Of course the CVS right next door doesn't have them, which would be way too easy. The CVS I did go to had them but of course that was the day everybody and they mama had brown eyes so all the Black Pearls were gone. I have read that it's available at Walmart which figures since it’s nowhere near me. I'll keep you posted…
