- "I just tried this today and i love it! I may have to buy a waterproof version for work, because it will move on you if you have watery eyes. It applies smooth, isnt too thick, isnt too watery( but it does apply wet). It builds nicely too, so if you like more than a single coat it doesnt clump. And all that is great, but i am OVER THE MOON!!! About the packaging. Its a rubberized grip...and it blew me away bc i didnt read anything about it, i just needed a new mascara. The grip is so awesome! I have butterfingers, and i cant tell you how often i feel like im gonna mess up my makeup bc the wand feels slippery, or too smooth. I wish all wand handles were like this. I love it!" in 39 reviews
!¡!pRoTiP!¡! I applied 2 coats and liked the result much better afterwards! FINAL THOUGHTS: If ur in the market for a lightweight, fanning but natural mascara, the Peacock Flare in “extreme black” is totally for you! :-) COVERGIRL Peacock Flare Mascara
This product does absolutely nothing for my lashes. It claims to give you “full fan of thick lush lashes”. Nope, not even close. It provides no volume or lengthening whatsoever. My lashes look separated on the swatches but it’s not a big deal since there is zero volume. I have quite nice lashes (that could be more voluminous though) and it’s not that difficult to make them look better, but this mascara doesn’t do the job for me. Also, I have to mention that the curl you can see on the photos is the job by Kevyn Aucoin curler, not this mascara.
I’m also not a fan of plastic bristles and never buy mascaras with them myself (no matter what brand), but I’ve had some mascaras with such type of wands before. I have to say that Peacock Flare brush is the worst I’ve tried. First of all, as I already mentioned it does nothing for the lashes. Second, I have no idea why COVERGIRL calls it “feather-fan brush” since it’s super-spiky and its bristles are very firm and hard, to the point where it’s not comfortable to use it near the eye waterline. I’ve heard that some girls accidentally stab themselves in the eye with a mascara wand time to time. I’ve never experienced that but, girl, you better not to mess up with THIS wand.
Probably the best thing about the formula is its staying power. I’ve experienced some minor flaking during first ten minutes after application (which is super weird) but afterwards mascara performed well on the lashes.
As for the package, I love the color scheme and the soft touch grip on the cap (it will become dirty very soon though), BUT I definitely not appreciate how bulky the tube is.
My final thoughts: I can’t recommend COVERGIRL Peacock Flare Mascara to anyone. I can’t even call it basic or average since there are tons of other options in drugstores that are the same price or even cheaper but ten times better. Sorry, COVERGIRL.
MY DAILY EYE LOOK: I tightline under my top lashes, do a coat (max 2 but not likely) of mascara, and add a baby-baby wing with a liquid liner. That being said, the mascara I use is EVERYTHING in my daily eye look- it's the star of the show, the main thing you see when you look at my eyes.
MY REVIEW: I was NOT impressed by this mascara AT ALL. I have not found 1 CoverGirl mascara I like, so I had hope for this one since many other drugstore brands are stepping their game up but this one did nothing for me. They describe the brush as a "feather fan" but it's more like a prickly comb. When I think of feathers I think of something that is thicker, more plush. This brush did nothing special, hardly separated my lashes and the formula ended up making my lashes stick together. They also describe this formula as "lengthening" and "volumizing", two words I would not describe this mascara to be. It applied mediocre and the initial payoff was not worth me trying for another coat. I've even tried this on my lower lashes only and it still had little-to-no affect on them.
FOR REFERENCE: My natural lashes have an average volume and length but nearly 0 curl. I use the Shiseido eyelash curler with every mascara I end up putting on that day, and it gives me an amazing initial curl.
LAST THOUGHTS: I would not recommend this mascara to anyone that wants their natural lashes to be at their best. There are plenty of other drugstore mascaras lately that are comparable to prestige brands and this retailing at $7.99 at my local Target, I would just spend another $2.00 and get the other mascara we all hear a lot about ;) *cough cough* For now, I'll use this for a quick coat under my falsies.
I love how it defines them, lengthens, and brings volume to them all at once.
This is a great mascara if you're looking for definition and volume instead of the really thick clumpy stuff.
Highly recommend COVERGIRLCOVERGIRL
I received the Peacock Flare mascara from @covergirl thanks to an influencer campaign. I have to admit the packaging was so pretty, that I was super excited for the product and wanted to love it. There are a few features, however, that keep this from being my ideal mascara. 1️⃣The wand, while innovative, doesn’t feel good when it brushes the roots of my eyelashes. That is my number one complaint. Because the bristles are in a spiral and not the brush style I am used to, there is a grating feeling that actually startled me the first time I used it. 2️⃣ It coats my eyelashes well and doesn’t make them clump together. The length is good. I like the way it looks, but the fact is, I like my other two mascaras more. Right now I alternate between #Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black, and #TooFaced Better Than Sex mascara. Swipe through the slides 1 & 2 to see the comparisons on me. Slide 3 is left eyelashes bare and right eyelashes wearing Peacock Flare. First slide is the brush itself.
I’m always grateful to try new products, and genuinely bummed when they don’t work out for me. It doesn’t feel good to have to say that you didn’t like a product, but it’s a priority for me to be completely honest. As with all beauty and skincare, YMMV! 💃

It doesnt give me the length on my lashes that some of my other favorite mascaras do, even though my lashes are fairly long, but that is what i love about this product! It gives me a natural fanned lash without it being too extra. You know some times of people thinking i have on fake lashes and i dont. So i love that.
It can at times feel slightly heavy on my lashes. But it DOES NOT CLUMP you can apply as much as you want to get that real long "PEACKOCK" look.
I also love the shape of the bottle and the fact that is has little grips on it. It also clicks to close so i know its closed tight, and i do not have to worry about it spilling in my makeup bag.
I didn't get any eye irritation with this mascara. And i usually do with most products.
To take it off was fairly easy for me. I just used my simpy clean makeup wipes and it came of with 1 wipe. Then i washed my face with a face wash to get off any remaining product.
Thank you covergirl for these great complimentary products! You've been inspiring me since Americans next top model. And inspiring and motivating me now with my FIRST VOXBOX! :)
