Covergirl Flamed Out Mascara Review

 Initially, I didn't plan on trying Covergirl's Flamed Out Mascara, the reviews were mostly negative and it just didn't appeal to me that much. Then, to my surprise I received it in a swap with my friend Steph. Covergirl says Flamed Out will help you "make a bold statement with winged lashes that curve up and out. The unique wire brush coats your lashes for an instant volume boost." There are four shades to choose from, my tube is in Very Black Blaze, not that its really. Also, Covergirl offers both washable and waterproof formulas, this review is for the washable version. A tube of Flamed Out mascara contains 11ml (.37 fl oz) and will run you about $8. Unfortunately, Covergirl does test on animals. This mascara was made in the USA.

 Covergirl's Flamed Out Mascara comes in a short, chunky red tube with metallic purple flame licks. The Covergirl logo is printed on one side of the tube, Flamed Out on the other - both in silver lettering. The color scheme is very bold. I have a pretty big complaint about the packaging. There is no stopper, no little rubber bit that removes excess product, just a gaping hole. Combine thatwith a small to average sized brush and you're asking for a messy applicator. Flamed Out has an interesting brush, which is average in size. It nips in a little bit in the middle, and the tip of the rush is flat, collecting even more excess mascara. The brush is made up of short, evenly spaced traditional bristles. I find the brush easy to work with, but the design is kinda curious.
 Flamed Out is a decent mascara. I have good luck with Covergirl mascaras in general, and this one is no exception. Flamed Out works it's magic in two coats. This mascara doesn't add much length, but it manages to both thicken and define the lashes. Flamed Out is great for holding a curl, though it barely provides one on it's own. This is a very wet mascara, so a slow and steady hand is needed for clump-free application. Unlike most Covergirl mascaras, Flamed Out takes a while to dry down on the lashes, and is quite prone to smudging while wet; I almost always end up with a few marks on my brow bone after applying this mascara. Despite it's initial propensity to smearing, once Flamed Out stays on your lashes, no flakes or smudges to speak of. This mascara is slightly difficult to remove.
 Covergirl's Flamed Out Mascara is pretty good, it definitely exceeded my expectations for sure. Packaging is bright and eye catching, but not very functional. The brush has a unique design. This mascara isn't for you if you like a lot of length, but if you want thick, lifted, curly and defined lashes you'll like Covergirl's Flamed Out. Honestly I don't understand all the bad press. Would I repurchase Flamed Out? Nah, I prefer Covergirl's Clump Crusher, but I'll continue to enjoy the rest of my tube. If you've been curious about Flamed Out, get it, it's worth a try.
