I've always been a huge CG fan and this new lashblast might be my favorite yet!
The brush is the same as in every lashblast mascara- big and thick with lots of little rubber bristles. I bought the formula in the blackest shade and I love it! The mascara doesn't smudge or collect in my undereye (even on super hot summer days). I find that it lengthen, thickens, and holds my curl very well. It also doesn't smear too badly when it gets wet (so it is great for the pool).
The only downside to this product is the removal process. Like any long-wearing mascara, it's a pain to get off. I find that soft cotton pads and an oil-free liquid remover work best.
For anyone who needs a long-wearing mascara, Lash Blast 24 HR has my vote!
Great mascara! Holds your curl all day with minimal smudges. Only mascara out there that can hold your curl all day. No more having to curl, apply mascara, then curl again and risk pulling out some of your lashes when curling with mascara on. Once you curl your lashes with this mascara and then apply, it helps to fan out your lashes making them look so long, lushes and beautiful, best of all the curl stays all day! For those that say it's hard to remove, it is not with baby oil. Just soak a cotton pad with good old baby oil, let it sit on your lashes for a few seconds and swipe, it will come right off! The baby oil will also moisturize your lashes and help them grow! I have to agree, it was difficult to remove in the beginning, but then I realized that you can use baby oil, because that's what I use when I take off heavy eye makeup. Yes, ever since I've gotten this mascara, I have learned to use baby oil to remove it and my lashes have grown and become so much fuller!
New favorite mascara, right here!
Prior to trying this, my staple mascara was the regular CG lashblast mascara (orange tube). Don't get me wrong, there was nothing wrong with it, but when I went to the store to pick up a refill, all they had was the lashblast 24HR. So, in desperate need, I picked one up. I've only been using it for a week now, but it has definitely topped the regular lashblast for me! The packaging is the same and the formula is essentially the same to apply to your lashes, but the 24HR holds a curl soooo much better! I usually have to go through a routine of curling my lashes, applying mascara, and then recurling a few minutes later. Not so with this bad boy! The curl holds as you apply the mascara, and it continues to hold all day long. No flaking, smudging, irritation, etc.
The only major downside to this mascara is the fact that it is ridiculously hard to remove (thus, it only gets 4 of 5). Even when I'm armed with my cotton pads and make-up remover, it can be a bit of a battle to completely get off. Even so, it can be removed with a few extra minutes of soaking and scrubbing - think of it as a positive, if you will. This mascara doesn't advertise to be waterproof, but it definitely, definitely is (much better than the lashblast water resistant - that stuff comes off way to easily).
All in all, it's a great drugstore find. CG rarely disappoints me with their products, and this one is definitely a hit. It is a bit pricey for a drugstore mascara (I think I payed 10$ for mine), but for that price it dominates a lot of high end mascaras that I've tried. Jump on the CG band wagon!
This is the best mascara I ever had. Every mascara that I used before straight out my lashes immediately, but this is incredible! I love the way my lashes looks. It last for long time and is not hard to remove. I definitely will buy this product again.
Absolutely the best mascara I have ever tried. Yes this is incredibly difficult to remove, however this is the ONLY mascara I have ever tried that does not cause my ridiculously straight lashes to loose the curl. I spend so much time and effort curling my lashes every morning and 30 minutes later the curl is gone. I tried every drugstore and many high end ones and none of them have held the curl as well as Lash Blast 24 hour. Theoretically I should take away a point because it is soooooo difficult to remove, but I love my lashes so much when this is on I can't in good conscience give it less than a 5.
I bought this mascara on a bit of a whim, having loved Cover Girl mascaras in the past. I was hoping like others I see here that the 24 hour staying power advertised would mean that this mascara was smudge-proof too, but I guess it was powerless against my Asian mono lid. Although when dry it feels pretty immoveable to the touch, after a few hours even in winter, I have dark smudges beneath my eyes. The formula was clumpy on first use and too wet; on my straight lashes, it often smudged onto my lower lashline line if I even squinted before it dried. The brush head is large and clumsy which makes accessing lashes on the outer eye a pain. Perhaps this product is good for people with a different eye shape. For me, I will probably not even finish the tube.
This is the worst of both worlds: hard to remove and still smudges. After a visit to the hair dresser I had just as bad raccoon eyes from the humidity as other mascaras. It is more time consuming get every last bit off than even some waterproof formulas, yet it doesn’t make my lashes any thicker than my other standbys. Won’t repurchase, probably won’t even finish the tube.
I think that most of the negative reviews are due to this mascara being difficult to remove, but I think that may be user error rather than problems with the formula. Like any other waterproof mascara you will have to use an oil based remover to remove it. I recommend using good old fashioned cold cream - it's cheap, non-irritating to the sensitive eye area, and does not clog pores. After rubbing the cold cream on my lashes and removing it with a tissue, this mascara comes off easily, no fuss, no muss, no lost eyelashes. I love this mascara, it makes my lashes long, thick and I don't find that it smudges or flakes at all. It does everything I want in a mascara.
LOVE THIS MASCARA! It makes my lashes look thick and fuller. I dont get why the negative comments, maybe some people are just not applying it right. This is my favorite!
This was so horrible. I agree that this was almost impossible to get off and it was faded grey at the end of the day. Covergirl should not sell such crap.
