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.

Worth the hype. One swipe, two swipes, three swipes, four clumps. Amazing. My SO even commented that my lashes look "extra blasty."

I've been using Lash Exact ever since it came out, and so of course I HAD to try this, because, well, it might be better! The bigger brush doesn't really reach my lashes well, and it didn't give me much volume. I'll stick with L'Oreal Voluminous when I want serious volume, and Lash Exact for casual daytime wear. At least with that one I'm not scared of the wand!

I have to give my two cents. I thought that the hype was a little much...but when I came across it in Wal-Mart I had to grab a tube or two. I have to admit that I love this! I will definitely repurchase (and it may have to be soon..I haven't reached for anything other than this since I got it!) I have tiny pale lashes and this actually gives me full noticeable lashes!

The formula is wetter and I really like that. I feel like I can get it placed where I want it better than a thicker one. The brush is a little bizarre, but efficient for reaching the littler lashes. Altogether I would say that this gave me more volume than length. I recommended this one to my mother and she loves it, too!

This mascara isn't as great as I expected by all of the glowing reviews here. This reminds me of Cover Girls previous hits- Lash Exact and Volume Exact- except I think I like the previous versions better than Lash Blast. The brush is fat and a little tricky to maneuver without making a smudge.... but it can be done. The formula is a nice, dark black (I bought the "very black") which I like, and I find that it doesn't really smudge or flake too much as the day goes on. What I don't like about this mascara is that it does seem to pull the curl out of my lashes a bit, and it doesn't create any noticeable length. It gives me a little bit of volume without clumping... but I like my lashes to look long, and dare I say "spikey?" (Not freakishly spikey, just more of a false eyelash kind of look.) I still find MAC's Zoomlash to be the best at accomplishing that task for me. This is a good, everyday mascara, because its best feature is that it does NOT flake. (Flaky mascara is a bane to my sensitive eyes!) But in comparison, Maybelline Define-A-Lash and L'Oreal Telescopic give me more length and perform a little better than Lash Blast... so I probably will not repurchase this one.

i generally like this mascara. i am not blown away by it like some of the other reviews but it's okay. i wonder if they will bring out a water proof version? i thought it was kinda expensive though. i paid $8 for it at CVS which seems quite high for a drugstore mascara. EDIT: this flakes badly. not buying it again.
