As far as mascaras go... i'd say Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume is one of the best. Best drugstore hands down and even better some of the department store brands! Will continue to purchase this over and over as it never disappoints. Its a black black (not dull or grey), it holds a curl well, volumizes and lengthens enough, and lasts quite a while without smudging (I have oily lids so a little smudging is always expected) Great value too. The fatter brush needs getting used to but i'd say this is my HD at the moment.
I don't know what it is about Cover Girl mascaras, but I really love'em! This specific mascara comes in a fat orange tube and it's a gem!!! I have decent size lashes but I could use a lil volume to make them look fuller. I find that darkening my lashes always gives that voluminous look which is why I wanted to try this one. I am soooo NOT disappointed. And you can't beat the price. Target has massive sales on this mascara so I can usually find it for about 6$US. Its great! I apply about 2 coats and my lashes are definitely BAM and WOW!!! But I do use a curler. this mascara doesn't weigh my lashes down and it doesn't smudge either. Simple water and cleanser will wash this right off. Soooo easy and great results. try it! You will luv it!!!
My favorite drugstore mascara! Goes on well, gives me amazing results, no problem with it lasting... it's not very waterproof but it doesn't claim to be and I don't expect it. I love it! Much better than the other Cover Girl mascaras in the lash blast line that I've tried. Wonderful!
I also have a couple other friends who have tried this who aren't on MUA, and they all love it too! :) I don't find many people who don't really love this mascara once they try it.
I use this mascara everyday and I love it! I have thin lashes and this mascara is great at holding a curl. I like putting mascara on my bottom lashes and it stays on without smudging and giving me raccoon eyes. This mascara really opens up my eyes and makes my entire face look beautiful!
gives me long lashes in 2 coats
the brush is HUGE so it kinda makes it diffcult to put on and not get it all over your eyelid.
Comes off very easily I wish I've gotten waterproof
This is my go-to mascara. It doesn't clump as much as most other mascaras and it does a good job coating my lashes with a minimal amount of fuss. My lashes don't flake a lot and they feel soft and natural. If you aren't looking for anything too dramatic, this might be a good mascara for you.
On my hunt for the perfect mascara I have ventured out and left the safety of Lash Blast Volume behind, but every time I find myself returning to the haven that my go-to mascara provides. I'm sure someday soon I will get the two-year itch and return to the eternal quest, but I'm not certain there is anything better out there for me.
I actually bought this product on a whim at the grocery store. I had run out of my usual Maybelline Falsies mascara that I get from the drugstore, and thought I might as well try this. I'm a fan of the rubbery/plasticy brushes compared to the normal bristle ones. I didn't know how well this mascara would work, but I was pleasantly surprised. The mascara definitely gave me both length and volume without looking clumpy, which was great. It was a tad more expensive than the mascara I usually get, but not horrible. I'm definitely a penny pincher when it comes to makeup, but I would buy this again. I like the look of the packaging, but sometimes my cap has a hard time screwing back on all the way, which annoys me, because then the mascara drys out faster. Probably just a bad cap, but other than that, good mascara. I'm going to keep trying others to see what my favorite volumizing mascara is, but this is one of the best!
UPDATE: This is currently my favorite and most repurchased mascara. Love the volume and separation it gives, it always makes my lashes look stunning. I give this mascara 5 stars now because I always come back to it :)
I have a love and hate relationship with this product. The way I like to have my eyelashes look seem to come from mascara's that have a bit of a drier formula. This mascara is quite wet and the first couple uses make my lashes look really ... well not what I prefer. But once the formula dries up a bit I am in love with this product! Granted, I don't follow the 3 month rule where after using a mascara for 3 months you throw it out. So once my mascara starts to get drier and drier to me it works even greater !
I still rate this 4/5 because even when the formula is wet it still does a great job with my lashes just not the best and the results when the formula is drier is amazing for me!
This mascara can't hold a curl very well, I think the formula is too heavy. Also the brush is to big to reach the tiny lashes and makes them clump. Overall it's an average drugstore mascara but I wouldn't buy again.
Price: 2 (~$6 at Wal-Mart)
Packaging: 2 (eh.. it's ok. I don't like how big the tube is)
Buy again: yes
This is my 2nd tube of this, which says alot, because I have NEVER bought the same mascara twice. Ever. I am Asian and have super straight, average length lashes. I loved the volume that L'Oreal Voluminous Waterproof gave me, but hated how the waterproof formula managed to make my lashes brittle and fall out.
I bought my first tube of the original Lash Blast in 2009 and I found that the formula was a bit more "wet" than it is now, but otherwise, pretty much the same. It made my lashes look thicker and more sexy, especially as the formula dried a little in the tube over time. I find that the Lash Blast Volume formula is very much like the original, but a little "drier" so it helps retain a curl better.
Wear: I can wear this all day without problems of clumping, flaking or smudging. Definitely a plus in my book. Occasionally my eyes water, but I haven't ever had a problem with it smudging my mascara either. At the same time, it is easily removed with soap and water (or eye makeup remover).
Volume: I find that this mascara is very effective in giving my lashes a boost of volume with just a few coats. It's appropriate for daytime, but can easily be increased for nighttime too.
Overall, I do not have any complaints about this mascara. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because I actually like how Lash Perfection makes my lashes look more!
