Taylor Swift endorses this new Covergirl Natureluxe mascara which claims a lightweight formula with a touch of beeswax for 2 times more volume - here's my review :)
- Black brown.
- Very black - is the shade I picked up.
- Very black (water resistant)
- Black (water resistant)
This mousse mascara comes packaged slightly differently from the usual mascara tubes. The wand is packed separately and not inside the bottle. You have to remove/discard the cap and then replace it with the wand-cap. I guess the purpose is so that the wand can be seen properly, and as a marketing strategy, it sure worked for me :D On to the wand itself, this is my favorite kind, with stiff bristles that help get even coats and definition without the clumps.
Actual Performance: This is a very light weight mascara, and the wand picks up just the required quantity of mascara without the goopy mess. On my eyes, one coat made hardly any difference. I needed two coats to get it to show some effect, but I didn't have any clumping even at this stage. It washes off easily enough with soap and water, and since I hardly ever purchase waterproof eye makeup, this is a good thing for me. Waterproof version of the same mascara is also available for those who prefer that.
On my eyes:

You might want to look elsewhere, though, if you want a more dramatic effect in terms of volume and like the mascara to deliver with just one coat - you would find this mascara a little too lightweight.
