After reading reviews on here & Teamsugar, I really HAD to try this mascara. Despite a few bad reviews, I have to say that I do love it! The formula is a lot wetter than I'm used to, so I can see why some people don't like it. It holds curls fairly well, but my lashes already hold curls well on it's own, so I can't really judge that aspect. Although the brush is huge, I didn't have any problems reaching all of my lashes. It made them fuller & slightly longer. The more coats I added, the better it looked (I put a lot on for Halloween, so I needed something dramatic). For everyday use, 1-2 coats is perfect for me. It separated my lashes beautifully as well. No problems with clumping either, but I've perfected my way of applying mascara, so maybe that's why. It's on it's way to HG material, but we'll see as the weeks go on. So far, I like it a lot!

LOVE THIS!!! The brush is awkward and big but you can get used to it. Even the handle is unreasonably chunky and annoying to use. This separates very well and adds length, curl, and volume. Oddly, I hated it at first and now it is HG all the way. I can't live without it. I use the NON waterproof (I hate waterproof) in 'very black'.

Ok after using Lash Blast for about a week, I can give a decent review now. I found it to be a decent mascara, but definitely not worthy of all the crazy hype. Overall, it is a good mascara, and I like the results, but I get better results from other mascaras.

To me it is wetter than Lash Exact and Volume Exact, making it slightly easier to work with, formula-wise. I found the brush to be a little too big as well, as I kept hitting it against my lid and getting mascara on my eyeshadow. However I didn't like the packaging, it was a little too big for my small hands.

I liked the results I got, it does a good job of lengthening and separating, but not an excellent job of volume. I got better volume and length from L'oreal Telescopic, which is my HG, and I will go back to Telescopic when I'm done with Lash Blast.

As far as improvement, I think the Lash Exact brush would be awesome with the Lash Blast forumla, and I may try that sometime.

I was very curious about this product after reading reviews, and managed to find it at Target for about $6.50 (not bad for a DS mascara). My lashes are already really quite long and the dark pigment in the very black color made them appear even longer. My lashes are also somewhat thick already, I was just looking for something to add to it and this product did, but I don't know if I like it or not. I almost feel like I should be wearing a costume, this is definitely not for a day-time look, at least not for me. I can see why some people said it made them look like they were wearing false eyelashes. I find it glues lashes together to make them look thicker, and when you already have long lashes it becomes pretty obvious that they are sticking together; you don't have too look too hard. Anyhow, I suppose this would be pretty good for some women, but overall for me it's not wonderful. Who knows, maybe I'll fall in love with it after a few days.

I have to say I like this. The brush itself is megabig and delivers the mascara really well, although I think I seem to have more clumping than most other reviewer, especially near the point of the brush. (Even after wiping.) Still, the mascara itself seems to be just the right consistancy - not too thick or too thin - to apply and adhere well to my lashes. I have to say I didn't notice any huge difference in volume or length compared with any other good mascara out there. Certainly not the false lash look others seem to be obtaining with it. It does seem to be very lasting, although I do notice some flaking later in the evening - but then most mascaras don't last nearly that long anyway. My only real complaint is with the brush handle, which is much too big and clunky to manipulate easily. It just seems to get in the way. All in all, I think this is a good mascara, but really not living up to the massive hype. I'll be using it as a backup to MF Volume Couture, which gives me a much more noticeable result.

I got this in Very Black, and I think it mostly lives up to the hype. I found the thick rubber brush easy to use, it's a nice glossy black, and it gives me that false eyelash look - perfectly separated lashes, no clumping, amazing length. The only thing that would make it perfect is more volume. My lashes are already long and curled... sometimes I want more thickness. Other than that, I think it's great. I put on four coats of this stuff and my lashes just got longer and blacker with each one, and still soft to the touch with no flakiness. I think this is a perfect mascara for nights out, and I will stick to L'Oreal Featherlash for a more natural daytime look.

I've been using this for a while now, and I haven't had any of the flakiness that others have described. It's held up very well, and I've been wearing it to work daily. My lashes look great all day, and I probably won't use anything else anytime soon.

I caved and bought into the hype and I'm glad I did. My lashes aren't very dark or long so I've still been on the hunt for my HG. I took one lippie off because the price is a bit high for a DS product. ($8 IIRC)

I find that the first coat simply defines your lashes, the second coat lengthened and added some volume and the 3rd coat made them super long. Overall you're not going to get super volume but that's not a huge issue for me. I also had no issues with it clumping or turning spidery after 3 coats.

People have commented that the tube is really thick making it hard to hold but I didn't find this to be the case for me. I will definitely be keeping the wand after the mascara is gone because it's really great.

A very good mascara. Gave me volume and a little length. I actually really like the brush (I know some people thought it was too big). I would definitely buy again if I could find it for a good price. I took off a lippie only because I didn't see much difference between it and other good d/s mascaras (Max Factor Volume Couture, L'Oreal Voluminous, Maybelline Full & Soft). Just don't think it quite lives up to all the hype.

I was resisting the raves and wasn't going to buy this, but I happened to be at Walmart today, and it was right there, and $6.98, so I thought "What the heck." I was a bit hasty and grabbed Brown Black by mistake; maybe if I had gotten Black, there would have been more of an impact. But my honest opinion is that this mascara is nothing special. The rubber brush thing is interesting, and I didn't really have a real problem applying with it. But yet again, this is another mascara that refuses to hold a curl. I also didn't notice a significant boost in volume. There was a little volume, but nothing amazing. Plus my lashes felt crunchy after the mascara dried. I have thin, short, stick straight Asian lashes and if I do someday find a miracle mascara that actually does what it promises, believe me, I will be the first to let MUA know. Lash Blast was not it.

This mascara is not only amazing. It's the first of newest technology to hit the mainstream market. As Cover Girl explains the brush is the biggest EVER from Cover Girl. The lash boosting formula is also the newest from P&G. The Mascara Brush is a happy new find. The brush enables every lash to be combed out and precisely colored. The new formula Thickens my lashes with 3 x the volume. There is absolutely no irritations, clumping, smearing,flaking and no fading. It's also easy to remove. I picked this up in "Very Black" This stay's the blackest I've ever seen from a mascara. I wore it all day and night and nothing changed. Its as if I put on a pair of very high end boutique faux lashes. I own dozens of fresh mascara and this impresses me the most. If I can finish a bottle of this This could possibly be my holy grail mascara. A mascara in one brand I could purchase and put away and use over and over. I have been using this for 4 days and a night now. Other mascara's that I own and have purchased do not compare to this right now. I still have others brands I haven't tried yet though in packages. Believe it or not my $30.00+ mascara's didn't do this good. I'm still on a buy-athon and try-athon gals. The price is a Bang for a budgeter's buck. For me very cheap. I've already picked up backups in other shades.
