IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara Review and Swatches

Sponsored: I was given a full size sample of IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara $24 at the IT Cosmetics Happy Hour Event. I was not asked to do a review, but felt it would be helpful to my readers. All opinions are 100% my own. I tried this mascara several times. It lengthens. So if you're looking for a mascara that will lengthen your lashes, it will do that. It's a very black mascara. Super black as stated on the packaging. So if you like super dark lashes, then this mascara is for you. This mascara is not for me and let me tell you why. It clumps my lashes together (it groups them). The first time I applied it, I started from the base of my lashes to the tips. It grouped my lashes together and left clumps at the tips (ends). So I read the instructions again and it said to wiggle the brush from the bottom of your lashes to the top. I did so. I still had the grouping of the lashes, BUT LESS clumps at the tip (so that worked somewhat). I need both lengthening and volume. I felt my lashes looked like long black sticks once I was through. I also felt this mascara was very heavy for my lashes. They just felt weighted and coated down. This mascara promises volume, length, elasticity. I say it's more of the latter than volume. This mascara is not waterproof, but it is paraben, cruelty free, ophthalmologist tested and suitable for contact lens wearers. Has anyone tried this mascara or seen reviews? Let me know your thoughts.

Volume is ok but I would wanted to give more length to the lashes and it doesn't. I tried many mascaras lately and most of them were disappointing, why is it so difficult for them to create a great formula?

It looks pretty average to be honest, doesn't give that great of volume.

I guess it's okay? The way you described it, kind of reminds me of the Maybelline Stiletto something mascara. Gives length but no volume which is what I would have preferred. xD

Kim, from the pics, I do love how your lashes look! I totally understand though if you don't like it coz of how heavy it feels. The no-no for me would be the fact that it's not waterproof. I know you're not supposed to wear waterproof mascara all the time, but I find those are the only ones that last on me:(

I did like the look of your lashes. I've heard so many rave reviews, I'm happy to hear a different perspective. I also want length and volume to my lashes. Thanks for your honest opinion.

Kim, I will be honest - I have yet to find one mascara that does everything that I want it to. On any given day, I typically layer two to three different mascaras to get the look I want. I feel like this mascara could do part of the job for me, but definitely not all of it. And for me, that would make it just like every other mascara. I hope one day I find a mascara that really works for me, but in the meantime, combining multiple products is the best solution I've found.

It doesn't sound like a good review but it doesn't look too bad in the photos! That could be because I'm using a trial size version of a mascara that gives me similar results, haha! I won't be repurchasing it, but I'll put up with it until the tube is done or I hit 3 months of use ha.

Hope you are having a wonderful week so far :)

Mascara is one of those items I am finicky about. I like my lashes to be understated so the brush must be bristle filled!

I have a couple of sample sizes and I wasn't a fan. I thought perhaps it was because they were tiny samples (sometimes, in my opinion, they just aren't the same.) But I had so much flaking, and I normally don't. But I know a lot of people swear by this mascara.

Thanks for the review Kim! It seems like a mascara that does is all is like an elusive unicorn sometimes. The super dark color sounds great but I think the clumping on the tips would probably drive me crazy and the weighted down feeling doesn't sound that appealing either. Well they can't all be winners...

Tanya Dufour said...

I need lengthening and volume too! I tried a sample of this and it didn't work for me either. Thanks for your honest review!

It's really bad that the mascara doesn't do that it claims. Very nice review Kim <3 Have a great day <3

Shira said...

People rave about this mascara but I hateee clumps!


Ashley Sue said...

That's too bad this didn't work for you! I've seen some good reviews but not enough to make me want to try it. I like tons of length and volume! And no clumps!

Laura - Alagoz said...

Its a shame it didn't work for you :( I have mascaras, which makes my lashes clump together x


Diva Desle said...

Such a pity this did not work out. I hate when mascara clumps together and gives an illusion of three lashes, lol. I love volume mascaras for that glam effect.

jo said...

That's too bad, it didn't work out Kim! I don't have any particular favourite mascara brands.

Too bad to hear it did not deliver Kim. I've been trying new mascaras and to be honest, nothing like Lancome.
