I read some really good reviews on this mascara and was excited to try it out. Unfortunately, I was kind of disappointed. It really didn't add as much volume or length as the original lash blast that comes in the orange tube. It does however stay in place all day and keeps my lashes curled.
The only thing this product did was make my lashes darker. It didn't make my lashes look longer at all. I would not buy this product again.
I love this mascara! I don't think I'll ever use any other mascara. I have never really been a cover girl fan but I decided to try this out because I liked the brush. I can't really say if it lengthens or not (since my lashes are already long, I don't usually pay attention to that) but it does not clump, which is what I look for! This is one of those mascaras that I can take straight out of the tube and apply it.(With a maybelline one, I had to swipe it off on a towel before I used it so it wouldn't clump). I'm in love with this mascara and I will never go back to another.
I tried this out because of all the raves. I really liked the product at first but I found that this dried out more quickly than any other mascara I've ever owned. It's also the only one that I've found is completely unusable after it's dried up. Once it's dried, it clumped and didn't go on as smoothly as it used to. It dried up in about 2 and a half months, and I finally threw it out at 3 months so that I wouldn't feel so guilty about throwing it out.
It held my curl relatively well (although my lashes do hold curl decently), didn't smudge much, which is the biggest problem I have with mascaras. However, it did flake sometimes and because I wear contacts, it wasn't a good combination.
The brush is also a little too big for my liking. After I threw it out, I've switched over to the Volume Exact Mascara and the brush is much smaller and more manageable. The effect of the VE is very similar to the LBFusion
Was disappointed by this product. It didn't do anything except separate my lashes and "color" them. The product is touted to "lengthen & volumize" of which it did neither. It didn't make any difference to the lash except darken then because I had "very black". What a waste! :-p
The very nice thing about it is that it is not thick & clumpy and it doesn't flake. It's not terribly hard to wash out. If you want to give your lashes some color; that's all it does.
I started out liking the original lash blast formula. It gave great volume and lengthened my lashes like no other. But with Cover Girl's creation of Lash Blast Fusion they hit a complete home run.
The original Lash Blast could clump sometimes, but this formula does not no matter how many layers you put on. One coat will give you defined and separated lashes with a hint of volume, perfect for the office or just around town. But if you want to go for a bit more thickness apply multiple layers and you get the amazing lashes that the original lash blast provides without a hint of clumpiness.
Although some may complain about the thick rubberized wand, I really don't mind because it has never been difficult for me to cover all of my lashes. I can imagine it being troublesome to coat some of the lashes near the corners of your eyes, but you get used to it quickly.
The reason I originally tried this was because of the fact that a friend said it was so easy to get off, and I loved lash blast but it was the bane of my existence when it came to trying to remove it. Fusion however comes off with any simple baby wipe, there is no scrubbing and massive amount of wiping to get it to come off.
Yet it stick on all day (and night) without even a hint of flaking, I've tested this out to the extreme, this mascara lasted through one whole day then a 14 hour red eye plane flight, only to come out to get soaked by the rain and yet my lashes still looked as good as when they had originally been applied. I would definitely say this is an HG product, even though I will continue on looking for better drugstore mascaras. The price does tend to be a little steep and I try to get it on a BOGO, but even still for drugstore it is a tad expensive.
I recieved this mascara as a Christmas gift, and I will probably be re-purchasing it in the future, however I'll probably stick to trying new things for the next while.
My staple mascara will be the Falsies from now on, sorry Covergirl.
However all that aside, it IS a pretty kick ass mascara.
The wand though is large, was very easy for me to get used to. The bristles are evenly spaced to provide great seperation and it glided easily through my lashes.
It doesn't flake, I put it on at around 8:15 and take it off at 9:30 in the evening, and I have yet to get any sort of flaking.
You don't need more than one coat.
My lashes dont feel hard after I put it on.
It adds good length, volume and seperation. With little to no clumps.
It can hold a curl pretty well. However The Falsies gives me better length, more volume, it can hold a curl better whereas with LashBlast Fusion the curl kind of fades away, however it gives probably a bit less seperation than Covergirl LBF.
If you're looking for less of a dramatic look I would definitely reccommend this one.
the orange tube is the rockstar and this is not even in the same stratosphere.
If you like a more natural look this tube is for you. I find if i layer it with another mascara (revlon fabulash) it looks like Im wearing YSL faux Cils. Dont think I would repurchase at the moment, I hoard mascara and must purge...
love this mascara for the voluminising effect and how easy it is to wash this with warm water. the wand is thick, making it easy to apply the mascara. i an asian, have relatively thick and curly lashes. this goes on so well!
I have both this and the Lash blast volume and I actually prefer this one. I wish the brush was a bit smaller, but other than that I adore this mascara!
