2 for 1 Mascara Review - Covergirl Plumpify and Covergirl Katy Kat Eye

Happy Thursday!

Today we are having a look at two of Covergirl's mascaras.



Covergirl's Plumpify and Waterproof Katy Kat Eye.  Both mascara's are marketed by Katy Perry.  The Plumpify is a permanent addition and the Katy Kat Eye is a new limited edition.

I purchased both of them in black.  I opened them on the same day and alternated between the two for two weeks.

Covergirl Plumpify


Plumpify comes in a red and black tube.  The brush has 360 degree bristles in a spiral pattern with a bristle covered ball on the tip.


                     

This mascara is great.  It goes on smooth, lifts, plumps and lengthens.  It does everything a mascara is meant to do.  The formula is thin and allows for multiple coats.  There was no flaking or bleeding and it washed off with soap and water.

My issue with this mascara is the brush.  It is too gimmicky and fiddly for me.  I can get the same results with Covergirl Clump Crusher and don't have to spend extra time on application.

The formula is good, but the brush is an issue.

Covergirl Katy Kat Eye Waterproof

Katy Kat Eye comes in a simple white tube. The brush is a fanned out 360 degree spiral bristle.

                     

This mascara is just okay.  It goes on the same as the Plumpify.  The formula is thick and needs to be blotted off before application is possible.  Multiple layers are possible, but only if you continue to blot the brush.  As the Plumpify, there was no flaking or bleeding and it washed off with soap and water.

The brush on this mascara is gimmicky as well.  The spiral is useless and just adds time to your makeup routine.

The formula is too thick and the brush is an issue.

Comparison

The idea behind both of these mascaras seems to be the same as evidenced by the spiral brush head.


Plumpify
  • Spiral brush head
  • Thin formula
  • Thick brush head with spiral ball on the end
  • Large brush head
Katy Kat Eye
  • Spiral brush head
  • Thick formula
  • Fanned out bristles
  • Small brush head

Conclusion

I wouldn't repurchase either of these again, but if I had to it would be the Plumpify.

Are you going to try either of the above mascara?

Take care,
Jen
