This is a great everyday mascara. It's not too dramatic, but not too natural. The only thing I did not like about this mascara was that it did not lengthen as much as I'd like. I have short, thin, and light brown eyelashes. Using this mascara my eyelashes were darker and thicker, which I loved! No raccoon eyes and washes easy. Doesn't hold a curl for very long, but I don't have stick straight eyelashes, so it wasn't a problem for me. My all time favorite mascara is maybelline colassol (sorry about the spelling). It gives me dramatic feathery looking eyelashes!
I am a mascara JUNKIE! So its really hard to impress me. I am not a HUGE fan of cover girl, but I wanted to find a new everyday drug store mascara, that works well. After reading some reviews and being convinced to try it, I went out and got it and I have been using for a few days now. Here are some of my thoughts:
Lashblast is a fiber mascara (not a huge fan of fiber based mascaras), which makes it very easy to remove. Despite easy removal, it hasnt smudged, flaked off and I have not ended up with racoon eyes at all (which is usually what happens with fiber based mascaras). Everything stayed put as it should. This is a great mascara if you use about two coats or three really quick coatsĖif you work slowly on each coat, youíll end up with clumps all over the place (i learned this while being rushed in the morning and then later on being able to take my time before going out on the town). It didnít seem prone to clumping so much as it dries quickly. When itís dried, my lashes didnít feel heavy or crunchy, and they still looked like they had a natural softness to them (which is good because i hate those stiff fake heavy lashes...)
I think what left me less than impressed with this mascara is that the effect is too on the natural side, which isnít what LashBlast seems to be about nor is it the reason a woman even wears mascara. It gives some length, a little volume (I didnít notice much myself), and tiny bit of thickeningĖbut it doesnít do any of these with any va-voom which is what I had hoped for. Another failed cover girl mascara. However i would reccomend this to any woman who wants a mascara that looks like she has nothing on at all, and is going for that ultra natural look. At $10 per bottle, I will stick to my go-to lorel voluminous mascara as this never disappoints!
I have nothing bad to say about this mascara! I've tried several higher end brands since I first got this. This performs better than most high end brands imo.It works great for me for a natural look or with a smokey eye. I also use Essence's Volumizing Lash Powder on occasion and have tried several different mascaras to see which works well with it. I've found that this mascara is the absolute best to pair with EVLP. I saw this on display at Walgreen's and had to get it again (4th time!) It doesn't flake and gives great volume as well as length. Also, since the brush head is orange, it is easy to see when you're about to run out and it is time to repurchase.
Pros: -Lasts a long time for me
-Doesn't flake (ever)
-The black (only one I've tried) is a very pigmented jet black
-can tell when you're running out due to orange brush head
-volumizing AND lengthening (rare to have both)
-easy to remove
-seems to not hold a curl very well
I think the pros far outweigh the cons here! ;)
I have been using this mascara for as long as I could remember. I have pretty long lashes except not too full. This mascara definitely gives the appearance of fuller lashes. This is one of the few make up products that I have bought over and over. I highly recommend it. If you try it and don't like it, at least you didn't spend a fortune on it.
I can't really say anything that hasn't already been said about this product. This is the most buildable mascara I've ever tried; I could layer this stuff all day long and it would look great. Beautiful volume, pretty good length. Don't notice any smudges/flaking with this, but it's easy to take off. Love love love!
This is the only mascara I have bought more than once. I've tried SO many - Lancome (pretty much all), Clinique, Smashbox, L'oreal Voluminous, Benefit BadGal, Maybelline Falsies, a bunch of the other Covergirl formulas, the list goes on. With new mascaras coming out all the time, it's hard not to get tempted. But I keep coming back to this one. I've tried blue, black and brown. While brown might be a bit too natural for some, I think it would be great for blondes or anyone who wants a look that's work appropriate and natural. My preference is blue. It really makes my light brown eyes pop! And doesn't look blue somehow. This stuff never flakes, holds curl and very best of all, washes off easily. No raccoon eyes, ever! If you're going for a false lash effect and don't care about messy lids or getting it off at night, this won't give you that effect. For a non-fuss, everyday look that's buildable if you want it to be- this is the best!
I bought waterproof. This is more volumizing than the Clump Crusher mascara that covergirl makes. It is also very waterproof if I went to the pool with it, but it still would smudge on the corners of my eyes because my eyelashes touch my face when I smile. The color I bought was also very black which is nice.
I love this mascara! It lengthens and it gives you volume. This is the first mascara I ever used and I still use it! I have been using it for three or four years. It is my HG mascara.
This is the only mascara I bought more than once. I loved the way it made my lashes look full. A little bit clumpy but my lashes are unruly to begin with. However since a few months ago it seems like this mascara has a different formula because it makes my lashes look just ok. I now have bought something new to try unfortunately.
I don't get the hype surrounding this product! I found that it defined my lashes, which is why I gave it 2 stars, but it also clumped and didn't add much volume. It was difficult to remove, which is a pet peeve of mine. I had to add several coats in order to get the desired effect, but it would take three or four minutes to remove all of it.
