Garbage & a mini update

Sometimes I buy products because I really expect the product to live up to its claim but other times I think I buy products to prove that the claim is as ridiculous as I first imagined. When I walked into CVS on Friday I saw Rihanna's hazel eyes glistening in the Covergirl adversment I just had to read more. The new Covergirl Exact Eyelights is an illuminating mascara which contains little sparkley flecks that will make your eye color pop.
Yes, this $8.99 mascara is as ridiculous as it sounds. My eye color did not pop, it did not look any more brown than it did before I applied this worthless mascara. You can't even see theglitter on your lashes when you apply the mascara (not that I would want to see glitter on my lashes anyway but I'm just saying...gee whiz this product stinks.)
I have to be reaslistic I didn't expect this product to work because as B mentions in her review of this product, the claim just doesn't make sense.
Below you will see a pic of my eyes, the one on the right has nothing and the eye on the left has the Covergirl Eyelight mascara.
Obviously I would never buy this product again, it really is a true waste of money. Now as a regular mascara it has one of those plastic wands and its ok,, nothing special.
I haven't done it in a while but this product goes into the "SKIP IT" files.
Have you ever purchased a product with a ridiculous claim? If so please share. Also I would love to know if anyone has had success this this mascara.


Update
The H20 can get a little product build up if you don't rub it into your hair well.
I am not sure if any of you saw the post on the free Aveda makeup makeover. Check it out if you are in the NY area.

I saw that product the other day and was like WTH and kept it moving. Didn't make sense to me either.

The irony that we both reviewed this on the same day. LOL, I love it! I really had no interest in even purchasing this but I had several reader requests. I KNEW it wouldn't work. Ha! Probably the world's most dangerous mascara. Those little glitter flecks irritated my eyes alllll day. It was awful. And I'm mad I lost my receipt so now I can't get my money back. LOL, so disappointed in CoverGirl.

I had that thing in my hand the other day and then I stopped and thought about it. I was like hmmm, let me let PJD be the tester for this one, I'm sure she'll get it! Thanks for saving me some money.
