NEW Covergirl Peacock Flare Mascara Review (+Life Update)

So how did that extra hour of sleep work out for you? I kept thinking it was time to go to bed...and it was only 8! This weekend was a low-key one for me--a good dinner out, a successful trip to the mall (speaking of, do you want a list of VIB Sale recommendations?), and I got some blog work done. I'm still having some issues staying asleep, still having occasional restless legs, but I'm the happiest I've been in a long time. I swear it's something about the fall.

I've also been reviewing beauty products, OF COURSE! Y'all know my weakness is mascara, right? I saw the new Covergirl Peacock Flare mascara at Target maybe a month ago, and I'm here to share what I think! Have you seen it around?

Let's talk packaging--can you see the shape of the tube? It's not a traditional round one--it's pinched. And the top is sort of rubberized--think kind of like NARS packaging. The shape and feel make this easy to hold. It advertises it as a "revolutionary" soft grip handle. I wouldn't go that far, but it's an easy hold.

Next, let's check out the wand: Feather-fan brush catches, coats, and separates each lash of this plastic wand.

Here's another view of the wand. Nothing really new here, but it's a pretty good one.

Here it is on your left. The formula is mousse-like and applies easily. It does give some length and volume. It says it's clump-free, but it was still a little clumpy. It didn't flake or smudge. I would say it's right in the middle of being too wet or too dry.

Here it is on your left again. I always say mascara really does make a difference. Don't you agree?

Here it is on both eyes. Overall, I liked this mascara and would give it 3.5 out of 5 mascara wands!

Covergirl peacock Flare Mascara comes in 5 shades and waterproof. It's around $8.

What did you think? 
Would you buy this mascara?


  1. I like the sound of this mascara!

    xo, Elisabeth

  2. The brush reminds me a lot of the super sizer one! I haven't noticed this one in-stores yet, but will keep an eye out!

  3. I'm all about a good CG mascara, and it's one thing I miss since I did the transition to cruelty free. Lately I've been hearing mixed reviews on all their new mascara's that they aren't as good as their past ones. I love the packaging though it's so sleek/pretty looking, makes you think it's going to be a good one. If your looking for a good drug store mascara, try out Annabelle ( I'm not sure if the US has it )

  4. I always have to laugh when words like "revolutionary" get thrown around in marketing. Yeah, ok. Haha. The mascara looks pretty on your lashes though. Sorry you are still dealing with restless legs, but I love to hear that you are happy!!! Fall makes me super happy. This is my favorite time of year!

  5. Girl you are looking oh so gorgeous!

  6. I'd never really thought about it before but adjusting a baby to daylight savings times is challenging!I'm basically just back up to being woken up at 4 am every day!

  7. Oooh nice! Do you think this one's better than L'oreal's Grande Lash Paradise? That's what I've been using...

    Thank you for the visit babe, Haute Khuuture blog just got a brand new facelift! Hope you’ll be by to check it out! Xx- Julie

  8. This is definitely not for me because I need lots of volume with my mascara. I think anyone who is blessed with good lashes will like this.

  9. Looks nice! I haven’t really paid much attention to my mascaras anymore just because I’ve gotten in the habit of using false lashes all the time! 😬

  10. I never leave the house without mascara! This sounds like a great product and I love the name!

  11. What’s your all-time favorite mascara?

  12. I've been wanting to try this! I like the way the wand looks! It looks nice on your lashes Elle! And I'm so happy to hear that this is been the happiest you've been! I think Fall makes everyone happy!

  13. I keep reminding myself that before we know it, the days will start getting longer again- I hate how early it gets dark! This packaging is really pretty and the brush reminds me of the L'Oreal telescopic, if I'm remembering correctly?

  14. I am really glad that you are feeling happy, Elle, you deserve it! I am really happy when I read that you had a good weekend! Oh, and I definitely see the difference, what for a great mascara, this Covergirl Peacock mascara! I want one too! Beautiful!I would love to try a mousse-like formula, I never had something like that.

  15. I always want to try this mascara but I dont really like the packaging because the shape is not symmetry enough for OCD like me. LOL

    Come to visit my blog if you dont mind^^


  16. Glad to hear to hear you're happy Elle! Great review! I've been wanting to try this mascara!

  17. Your covergirl peacock flare mascara review is really awesome. Thanks to share this beautiful Mascara review. It's really helpful for eye makeups.I believe makeup is an important part of women's life.

  19. I’d love a VIB sale post! I already bought my haul but I love seeing what other people buy and why : ) I’m so glad to hear you are happy. You deserve it!!!

  20. the idea of a mousse like texture sounds good.

  21. Oh I haven't heard of this mascara before so thanks for sharing!!

  22. Oh it looks lovely! Being completely honest, I'd be tempted by the packaging alone if I saw it in store, haha! So it's nice to see what it looks like on :)

    Hope you are having a lovely week so far :)
