I got this after one of my favorite beauty gurus listed it as a february favorite. I was really excited to test it out, and the first time I used it a lot of product stayed on the brush, and made my lashes look clumpy, and awful. The brush is huge, which makes application a bit awkward. I tried applying it again after wiping off the wand (kind of annoying to have to take this extra step in applying mascara) and it looked a lot better. This mascara makes my eyelashes look longer, and thicker, than any mascara ever has. It stays on for hours, and I don't notice flaking. However, it looks clumpy to me no matter how I apply it, even after combing out my lashes. It also irritates my eyes, which is not a huge surprise as most eye products seem to do. Overall, it's okay, and I like anything that will lengthen my eyelashes, but I would not repurchase this and will continue looking for something better.
Update: This sucks. My lashes were pretty nice, after using the talika moisturizing serum/whatever. They had grown and thickened. This mascara is a week made my lashes brittle, and caused them to break. Never again.
This mascara is truly waterproof,it does not smudge and lasts all day in the summer heat. I will repurchase.
Bottom line, this mascara works better than my most expensive tube.
I love this mascara. I use it in black-brown. I have long lashes, that are very straight. I curl them with a Shu or Sephora curler before applying this mascara. I am very particular about mascaras and I have tried a lot of different ones. Usually, I can find one or two features I like, but more negatives than positives. This mascara performs better for me than any other I have tried, even after the tube is 2, or even 3, months old. It holds a curl, defines and separates my lashes, darkens, and volumizes. It's not overwhelming with adding volume, but perfect for every day. It never flakes or smudges. It keeps my lashes feeling soft and natural, and looks very close to the same at the end of the day as when I first put it on. I never get it all over my eye when applying, which happens with most big-brush mascaras for me. I used to use L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes, or splurge for Benefit Bad Gal, but both would flake by the end of the day, moreso the longer I had the tube.
Yes, this takes a bit more care to remove, but it's not as bad as (or drying like) waterproof. I use Neutrogena eye makeup remover on a cotton pad, and just hold it on my eye, and sweep down... It always removes all of the mascara without pulling my lashes out. You just have to be patient. For me, the work to remove it is worth it (it is a 24HR formula after all, you wouldn't want it too easily removed!). This is the reason it looks good all day and never flakes.
I have been using this mascara since it became available in Canada, and have tried a few others during this time, but nothing ever comes close. As long as they make it, I will continue to re-purchase.
After using up Lash Blast Fusion, I had high hopes for this mascara. Up until this point I fell in love with Covergirl's mascaras, and so did every girl in my school. This made my eyelashes feel like they were gonna snap off! It did make them have more volume, no length though. It dryed out my eyelashes quickly and hardly any was left by the school day had finished (which by the way, was only SIX hours, not twenty-four!). It isn't my least favourite mascara so far, succeeding only to Wet 'N' Wild's Mega Plump. The price is the same with all Covergirls mascara, about $7-$8 depending on what store you bought it from. I wouldn't buy it again or recommend it.
I have very fickle eyelashes. Most of the mascaras I have used in the past never last, ot flake off. There has been a couple that I have tired that worked better than the rest, but then they end up being discontinues. This is the first that I have love love loved! I do not use an eyelash curler as I hate the harsh curl it leaves, but with this mascara I will not ever need one. It holds my lahes up as if I did use a curler and do not droop all day. It does take a while to remove though even with babyoil. It does not say waterproof on the bottle, but it surley is! I can go swiming and still have beautiful lashes. Thanks Cover Girl! Please dont ever discontinue this product.
i went in the store with the mindset to buy covergirl's lashblast original because it was one of my first mascaras and i remembered i really liked it as a preteen! but when i saw the black 24 hour, i was like okay, this sounds pretty good and it's not waterproof (i try to avoid waterproof mascaras because to me, it's just not worth the hassle.)
WRONG! first, it's so a waterproof mascara. it holds a curl pretty well (hence the two lippies) but that's about it. it doesn't really lengthen or thicken or add volume. and on top of that, after a week, it became impossible to take off.
one day, i put a little more on than normal and in the shower, i noticed a part of my eyelash was hurting alot whenever i touched it. so i used a makeup remover to wipe my eyes but it still hurt. then i realized a clump of mascara was there that wouldn't budge! i grabbed a cotton bud and olive oil and was literally there for 30 minutes trying to get the mascara off my eye. it hurt pretty bad and i thought my eyelashes were going to come off.
so in short, it was such a hassle to take off and is definitely waterproof despite it not saying so. and i could maybe excuse that if the results were amazing but they weren't. it didn't do squat except keep a curl pretty well.
I probably would repurshase, but i might not. It was good, volumize, amazing, bu hard to take off! I used make-up wipes that still wouldnt do the trick, and it will smudge sometimes, not often, but when your swimming, Wouldn't clump, maybe once after alot of uses.
I bought this on impulse the day of prom because the mascara I was using was running dangerously low and since I needed a new one I decided to try this one. The sales consultant said it would last the night and she was right. I applied it to my lashes and was instantly wowed. It added volume and length and didn't clump. It also separated my lashes while giving volume. When it rained during prom (we were on a dinner cruise) and basically had to run to the boat, this mascara didn't run or smudge or anything. It lasted dancing for an hour straight on a crowded dance floor. I love this mascara with all my heart
New HG. This is good stuff. Much prefer this to original Lash Blast WP. It lasts all day, even overnight, doesn't flake or fade until you take it off. The Black Brown shade is a dark espresso brown, whereas the regular Lash Blast Black Brown is just brown, not dark at all which I didn't like. The 24 Hour version is just right! Have alrady bought a few times
