Really like this mascara for a drugstore mascara. I bought several tubes of this when I was vacationing in the States since we do not carry Covergirl mascaras in BROWN here in Canada. I took a bit of a chance since I hadn't yet tried this particular big purple tube, but I have enjoyed all of CG's spikey wand mascaras (Lash Exact, Volume Exact, Lash Blast Length, etc)...and I think this is the best one of the bunch, as it does hit every desired trait in one affordable little package. I'm pretty impressed with what it does to my lashes for a drugstore mascara. Will definitely be buying more next time I'm in the US. (Please bring your brown formula to Canada, CG! I don't know anyone who uses the blue you provide here in place of brown...)
EDIT: this mascara isn't as great as I thought it was. It's not lasting me through the winter very well. It wears away with minor eye watering and it flakes everywhere. I will keep buying it/using it as a cheap alternative, but Diorshow Iconic is still the best mascara I've used.
This is my go-to drugstore mascara. Though it voluminizes and lengthens, it doesn't do the best job I've ever seen, but the product is good quality and definitely helps my lashes. It doesn't give me spider lashes and isn't too black for the office everyday. For what this product is worth, it does the trick.
I've used the original Lash Blast and liked it fine but found it dried up really quickly in the tube. I hate this version. The brush is too soft and the bristles are too short to grab my lashes. I remember the brush from the original being a bit over sized but it worked excellent and grabbed every lash. This one is terrible. This product was a waste of money and time. It gave no fullness or length what so ever even after multiple coats. I think I'll be avoiding this entire mascara line if the brushes have been changed to that crap. It's like putting on mascara with a q-tip.
Great mascara for the price, though the brush is huge, but the bristles are short >>
Does a half half job at lengthening and volume, but nothing too amazing.
Doesn't clump, the formula is a nice consistency.
While this stuff is good, I will be switching back to my reg Lashblast. It did nothing really for any volume. Length is pretty good but not great. I didn't get the full look of my reg Lashblast that I was expecting to out of this. If only my normal stuff didn't expire. =(
I found this mascara worked pretty well considering it's a Cover Girl product. Not clumpy and doesn't flake off. It adds quite a bit of volume and a bit of length. Not as much as my favorite Clinique High Impact mascara, but not bad concidering it's half the price. Good for every day wear, but I'd still prefer a more dramatic look for special occasions which this mascara doesn't deliver.
Price: I bought this for about 9$ CAD which is average price for a mascara over here.
Packaging: This brush, is basically the same as Lash Blast Luxe, and Lash Blast original. The brush is thick.
Packaging: is meh.
This mascara, is ok. You gotta be able to put it on in a certain way to put be able to use it to its fullest. So, no I wouldn't buy this again,I believe there are better products than this out there, just gotta find them.
This mascara is good, but nothing extraordinary.
This mascara sort of does what it claims to do: separates, stays, lengthens, and volumizes(a bit). However, there are so many mascaras out there that perform these tasks much better than this one. It separates and defines my lashes, but not as well as Estee Lauder double wear. It stays on all day without smudging or flaking, but again, I only had these problems with horrible mascaras. It does lengthen and volumize, but not a lot. Overall, it's good but not something that I can't live without. I don't see anything exceptional with it. I probably will not miss it once I run out.
On top of these, its big fat brush is quite hard to use on the corners and the bottom lash. You really need to be patient with it at first. Because the stubby rubbery bristles are so short, they can't grab onto my lashes. It gives volume if you apply multiple coats, but I'd rather use other mascaras that give similar effects in one coat.
There's nothing wrong with this mascara, but nothing too good either. I will finish the tube I have but probably will not repurchase in the future.
My new favorite mascara! This mascara is best at length, and second best at volume. It gives my lashes a dramatic length while adding some volume. The packaging is very cute and you get a lot of product in the tube. Only down fall is that it is more expensive than other drugstore mascaras.
I bought this product thinking it would be a good product to add length and volume to my lashes. It was a big disappointment. It worked alright, but defiantly are better mascaras for the same price out there.
