My mom got me this mascara today and it was on sale for a $1.50! And it was the 'limited edition' kind that has different lash blast mascara with a different wand.(Score!) So yeah once I tried it on it was pretty good. It was more on the dry formula side and I liked that because I found that lash blast fusion mascara was a bit to runny for me and made my lashes do the horrible droop-down after a curling. Im pretty okay with the wand because it does have the separation effect but I still favor the traditional spiral mascara wand more. Even though it is a good mascara I wouldn't be running back to it if im done with the tube

I've enjoyed CG mascara since i first started wearing makeup and the truth is this is a really good mascara. The formula is on the drier side which i found is ideal for my sparse lashes. For awhile this was my favorite mascara and i thought it would be the only mascara i would use. Then i discovered CoverGirl still tested on animals. I find this inexcusable and refuse to support a company that resorts this unnecessary and barbaric procedure in the distribution process of their products. This is truly unfortunate because there are many other successful drugstore companies that do not test on animals. I find that NYC's Big Bold Mascara has the same effect on my lashes as LashBlast. It has a similar formula and brush size, though it takes some getting used when switching from the LashBlast brush to NYC's. Overall, CoverGirl has really disappointed me and the fact that CoverGirl continues to produce products at the expense of animal lives continues to disgust and appall me. There are better alternatives to this mascara and that is where i will be taking my money.

I haven't tried many mascaras, but so far this is the only one I've found that doesn't smudge a ton on me (I'm Asian [you know that deal] and have oily skin). And this is with the water soluble version! I was hesitant about trying this because I'm not a huge fan of Covergirl, but I was wondering about the hype behind this product... I'm glad I bought it! Contrary to a lot of others, I like the large wand with the rubbery bristles; I feel that these wands work better at separating my lashes than the bristle-y ones. I pat on a little bit of powder under my eyes before applying the mascara in Black (I never cared for "very black" mascaras) to get the most smudge-proof finish I can. I like to do a zigzag motion for maximum separation and to help the product from clumping on my lashes. It lasts all day! I do wish it had better lengthening capabilities though; I guess I should try the Length and Fusion formulas, too (and I'm hoping they won't smudge on me, either!).

My first mascara was the LashBlast Luxe, and it was great, but then later i decided to try this one, because i tried it at my friends, and loved it. And, ive loved it since! i've bought this on and off since 8th grade (im a sophomore now) only because i cant really buy the same mascara 2x in a row, because i get bored :P. I like to try new ones, but this and Maybelline's Illegal Length are my favorites. This has a super-black formula, and the perfectly in-between wet and dry. A lot of people love or hate the wand, and i personally love it. I have had my fair share of smudges from the extremely fat tip, but i really dont care that much, because since im only a sophomore, i dont really care if my makeup is not perfect! It separates, lengthens, and volumizes like no other. and for $6 at Target? This is going to be a staple in my makeup collection for a long time. im getting more tomorrow(:

I absolutely ADORED the LashBlast Fusion mascara, so I decided to take a chance and get the LashBlast Volume. It was on sale, had cute white packaging for the Olympics, and was limited edition. Why not? I was so thrilled with this mascara! Gives a huge, false eyelash effect on my eyes and has a great color. Gives a wicked amount of volume, and a decent amount of length. But keep in mind--this is a volumizing mascara, and does not specialize in length. I adore this mascara!

I dont like the brush to this mascara at all....I've poked myself in the eye with it countless times because its so big. It also doesnt give me dramatic volume like I expected. I'll be sticking to my l'oreal voluminous from now on

I enjoy using this. But it tends to get very flaky, and by the time I come back from a party, the whole formula kinda gets distributed into a flaky substance....but that's if you apply a little bit. I've had it for a long time and besides the flaky problem, I absolutely love it! Will I buy it again? No, there are better mascara's out there in the world. I advise you not to by the waterproof one, because it takes HOURS to get it off, versus the normal one, which comes off after one wash. I love how it makes me look cute and flirty! I'ts a good mascara....but like I said, there are better one's out there in the world! It lasts for a pretty long time too. I've had it for about a year maybe or more =-) time flies by too fast to tell!

Love this mascara so much!!! It doesn't make my eye lashes stick into each other while volumizes it! I bought the non-water proof one so its so easy to wash out. I bought this one about 18$ at a price line store, it's quite expensive in Australia but it's worth.

I loved the Fusion one of this, and had it about 2 or 3 years ago. I decided to try this one just because it's the original and such. I got one in a Christmas set and another one....not sure when. And this past week I finally opened up one of the packs and it's just average, definitely not a HG just yet. It works really great on my right eyelashes, but not that great on my left eyelashes (which is odd since I'm left handed). It clumps on my left lashes worse than the right.
