On kind of a mascara binge lately. Started with Lancome's very mediocre but very expensive ($35!!!) Cils Design which went back to Sephora after a day. Next in line was Maybelline's new Curl XXL. Great mascara, drugstore or otherwise. And this CG formula was my third. I ran to CVS right after I read about it here and I'm pretty happy I did. Between this, Maybelline, and my usual HG YSL Effect Faux Cils, I can't really distinguish the results which is to say that all three are great mascaras, at least volume wise. All three formulas deliver dramatic, buildable results. My lashes are long so I am not really looking for length. Nevertheless, I get comments on my lashes which is always a sign of a great mascara.
I was pleasantly surprised with this mascara.It went on evenly with no clumps,the very black lives up to its name and it can be layered for a dramatic effect.I am anxiously awaiting w/p as it tends to hold a curl better,but this will do in the interim.I find that it tends to fan out the lashes as well as add volume,which is an added benefit.
I've been using this mascara for a week now and I really like it. Nice volume, lengthening and lasting properties. No smudging, flaking or clumping and it holds a curl well, which is very important to me because my lashes are stick straight and point downwards. I really love the color of the tube, however, it is a bit big. Not overly big, definitely won't bother me, but like another reviewer said, it's kind of awkward. For those of you mascara junkies (like myself) it's certainly worth a try.
First time wearing this mascara and so far so good. It is only the 2nd mascara I like with these new plastic bristle brushes (the 1st being Px Here to Stay 24hr mascara.) I didn't like Lash Exact or Volume Exact but this is much, much better than either of those. Good volume & length, doesn't weigh out the curl. In fact, I tried it on one eye w/o curling my lashes & on the other with curled lashes and I couldn't tell a difference. Goes on nicely with no clumps, but builds well for more than 1 coat. I found this at target for about $6, so price is decent. The big fat tube is awkward but tolerable I guess. First impression of this mascara is definitely positive. UPDATE: after wearing this for several days, I'd say it's still good but not my favorite. Sometimes it smudges just a little; not bad but still a little annoying. Also, with extras coats, it can turn clumpy quickly. And the tube is still awkward. Overall, not bad, but I prefer Full & Soft or Clinique High Definition mascaras.
I just got this last night (went to CVS, Walgreens,and finally found it at Target) and I like it so far. The brush is nice and my lashes look super full and not clumpy..The price was definately right. It was less than $6 at Target. I had been using Tarte 3 in 1 and loving it but for the price, this might be my new favorite.
So far I'm really not liking this mascara. I just bought it two days ago, but I'm underwhelmed by the results. I agree with the other reviewer who noted it's like the DiorShow of the rubber-bristle mascaras. The brush certainly is chubby and the tube is just as unwieldy. I liken Lash Blast to Lash Exact. I get the same wimpy results. CG Volume Exact was better for me, but my current fave is Max Factor Volume Couture. I actually put Volume Couture over 2 coats of Lash Blast today and the results are good, but I really don't like having to use 2 mascaras to get the results I want. I may continue to experiment with Lash Blast, but I can't say that I'd buy it again.
wow...love this..no irritation, clumps or smudges...even my co-workers noticed...will def buy again...try this!
CG newest mascara is certainly living up to it's name "lashblast" - thick wand, thick tube -great lashes! Thick, dark and very natural.
The rubber bristle wand does a superb job of keeping the lashes separate and despite being so chubby, it gets the little inside lashes quite well. No smudging, no flakes, no change in the lashes look the entire day. And the best part of CG's mascara formula - it washes off very easily. This is a beauty bag staple!
Well I worked 12 hours and came home and looked in my 10x magnifying mirror. Didn't move or smudge. The big honkin' brush will take some getting used to......hope I don't poke my eye out.
Was going to get DiorShow during Sephora's F&F, but now ........what's the point?
Update: I continue to really like this mascara........some downsides though. Beacause this is very wet, it has an increased drying time which can be a problem. Sometimes I have to go back and clean up under my eyes where it has "speckled. "
I also finedI do need to go over it with a dry "spoolie" to separate my lashes.
However I can't rave enough about the staying power. I like the "no smudge" aspect especially in the humid climate that I call home.
I love CoverGirl Super Thick Lash, so I wanted to see if Lash Blast could top it. I must say, they're very similar (no smudging and great volume), except for Lash Blast's big brush, which covers lashes quicker and makes them darker. I love the big brush (I've been meaning to try one, and was going to buy Benefit BadGal -- glad I didn't!), and will repurchase.
UPDATE 1/18/08: This mascara irritates my eyes, so I've stopped using it. Plus, it's hard to get the lashes on the outer corners of my eyes with the big brush.
