Another attempt by CG to convince us that this product is somehow different from anything else they have tried to market since the original Lash Blast. This one is worse than the original and clumps easily. It is not waterproof so it runs if my eyes water or it is raining. More garbage mascara to throw out.
I really like this mascara. It's a casual mascara for people who want to have a nice polished look without looking crazy or having super long/thick lashes.
With that said, let me assure you that you are NOT going to get bold lashes with this mascara. It will thicken and lengthen your lashes a little, not a lot so don't buy this thinking that your lashes will be like WOAH because they won't.
It's just a basic mascara. And I love it.
Plus the brush is nice and the mascara doesn't have any clumps :)
UPDATE September 15, 2010: I'm taking off one lippy because the mascara dries out quickly and I'm really starting to hate those pointy bristles on the mascara wand because it sometimes pokes my eyelid when I put on mascara really close to the base of my eyelid. I prefer the non-plastic bristles.
Decent Mascara, wasn't expecting a lot out of it since I wasn't a huge fan of the orange Lash blast. I have to apply 3 coats too actual see a nice difference.
I bought this mascara shortly after seing it on a sale at Shoppers for around 8$ - and in my excitement.... took the wrong color. yay... anyway the one i picked up was the blue one, which after application as far as i could tell looked black to me. Like promised it does lengthen, and volumize - however i wish there was more volume in the fomula. There are no clumps just like the previous LashBlast Mascaras. It's a debatable product which I have bought recently - so i can't exactly give my complete opinion about it.
I used the original lash blast and HATED IT. Seemed like I was the only person who did, it made my lashes look so horrible. So You'd think i'd learn when I though of buying this last blast fusion? no. Well It did better then the original lash blash- but still made my lashes look very spaced out, thin and short. I usually use some form of Maybelline Volume Express (Lately the "falsies") -But even the oldest version does SO much better then lashblast. Sorry lashblast, you lose.
Im surprised that this doesnt have higher scores as this is my fav mascara - i have quite long lashes so im after volume. And i get it (sans clumps) with this baby!
I often get asked if i have lash extensions when i use this - its perfect!
I LOVE CoverGirl LashBlast, so I was excited to receive the Lash Blast Fusion from BzzAgent. It doesn't thicken as much as LashBlast, but it does a good job lengthening your lashes. I think this product is good in conjunction with your favorite mascara. FYI: I prefer mascaras that thickens. My favorite mascaras for thickening is DiorShow and Lash Blast.
I usually go for lengthening, non clumping mascaras. I'd been using Cover Girl Last Blast Length before trying this one. The wand is the only complaint I have about this product, and even at that, it's not a big deal. I'm not used to the fat wand, but after a few uses, it didn't bother me as much. I was pleasantly surprised that I actually like this better than my Last Blast Length. I absolutely hate any mascaras that clump. I found this one to go on clump-free, which is surprising for a volume mascara (at least in my experience). I will still use Last Blast Length for days when I want a more natural look. I will definitely repurchase the Last Blast Fusion for when I want a more made-up or dramatic look. I love Cover Girl mascaras and I've liked everything I've tried from the Last Blast line. Also, there are almost always coupons for Cover Girl in my Sunday paper, so the price really can't be beat.
UPDATE 05.15.12: Changed rating to 5/5. I've tried a few other brands (both high and low end) and keep coming back to this. It's the only mascara I use now. Love it! And I prefer the fat wand now!
I like the purple chubby tube on this mascara. What led me to purchase was a magazine article comparing it to Dior Show. I haven't used that and didn't really expect it to compare anyway, but it did make me want to buy it.
I think this is an OK mascara. I do like that it seems to dry quickly and stay on my lashes rather than smearing above my eye,etc. The brush is OK, sometimes it feels a little rough on the lashes. I do like that it doesn't flake during the day, its easy to wash off. I didn't really notice major wow lashes but they look fine, I usually do 2 coats. My lashes are about average without mascara, I did notice that look a tad straighter when I use this.
Overall, this is decent mascara. No miracles, fairly low price, it works, but for me it wasn't earth shattering :)
$10.99 BOGOF. I don't really purchase DS mascara's so this seemed like a good deal to me...since then I have seen it for $6.49 a tube at WM. Oh well, I purchased Black and Black Brown. Initially I was meh about this mascara. I think I was being too passive applying it so it had more of a natural look vs made up. After wearing it for a few weeks and perfecting my application technique though it has become my everyday go-to mascara. This lasts a good 10 hours without flaking, smudging or smearing. I don't get panda eyes and no flakes on my upper lids either. I curl lashes, coat all the tips and then start from the outside lashes in. I use the wet on wet application method and average about 4 good coats on each eye. The big brush works best if you keep the taper toward the inner eye. I can get a fantastic dramatic eyelash effect that holds curl and stays fresh looking for my entire day. I love big doll/doe eyed makeup looks!
I have been wearing this almost daily since the initial review. I am updating this to make note that the 'Black Brown' shade is a true dark browned down black, very nice and not garish in any way. The 'Black' is not a true black, on me, it goes on black but the drydown leaves me with a grayish tone which, I believe, is usually called 'soft black'. The charcoal-ly gray dusty lash look does not do it for me at all.
I have already repurchased this in Black Brown but Black is in the 'emergency' makeup stash I keep in my desk at work---as in-- I would only wear it in a serious makeup emergency.
