CG's new Lash Blast is one the most popular drugstore mascaras out there. Their claim to give you "big, bolg, look at me lashes" had me racing to the drugstore to get a tube. Let's just see if it lives up to the hype!
*these are just my results. different lashes need different mascaras. I have typical "asian" lashes, a little thicker than most, if that helps*
ONE COAT: I untwist the top off. The brush bristles, originally orange, is now black. Suprisingly, there is no excess goop except for a little on the end which I scrape off. Using an index card above my lashes to guard my lid so i don't get horrible smears (
TWO COATS: Dip in the brush again, time for coat two. I have no idea whether you are supposed to let dry between coats, but I don't have that patience... Ahem. I wiggle the brush through my semi-dry lashes. This second coat REALLY makes a difference. Lovely volume and a little bit of length too.
THREE COATS: Three coats, three words: Oh. My. Gawdd. When I saw that commercial with Drew Barrymore, I never expected to have my lashes THAT volumized. Okay, so it's not, but it's as close as I'm going to get. Love it! A great falsh lash look. By the way, stick to two coats for bottom lashes if you're like me and have really sparse and short bottom lashes. I didn't even curl my lashes before actually and it lifted up my lashes (can't say this for everyone, my lashes are very light and easy to curl anyway). Don't rub the brush too hard agaisnt the index card, it's already wet and probably will make your lashes clump.
AT THE END OF THE DAY: After a day of shopping with my gals, I checked the mirror to see how this mascara holds up. I say- very impressive... it looks the same as it did in the morning. No flaking or smudging.
RECCOMENDED FOR: Most lash types. For any look from high drama to au naturale, it's very buildable. May be a bit difficult for people with small eyes, short lashes. Again, to prevent accidently smearing the product on your lid, use the index card trick and bend the wand (I promise it won't break lol). If you are a beginner, I don't think you should purchase this as your first mascara. Don't expect this to give definition or too much length. They are releasing a LashBlast Length soon though.
SO? This mascara delivers great results, when you know how to use it right. The brush IS a bit difficult to control. However, the fact that the volume it gives rivals high end products four times the price makes me overlook that and give Lash Blast 5/5 lippies.

I like this mascara because it does what it says!! it definitely gives more volume and lenght!! The price is cheap. I used to use the mac zoom mascara and I loved it !!! but it's good to find an alternate mascara that give similar result for less cheaper.

I love this, and it doesn't clump. This would be my HG for DS mascaras. I get it in Very Black. I think a browner one would not show up very well. It separates well, too.

I don't get the hype about this mascara. It is definitely better than most ds brands, but there are much much better high end mascaras out there.

I definately will be buying this mascara again. It's my HG mascara; that's why :) It really lengthens my lashes and kinda.. gives them a curl? Anyways; it's awesome.

This is my new DS HG, I love it! Got it in very black and it's perfect! Other "dramatic" mascara's tend to clump and flake, but this one goes on evenly and separates lashes perfectly! It's not outrageously bold, but it's dramatic. I just love how the lashes are perfectly defined. It's staying power is great too.

In my opinion I thought this product worked pretty well for me. I have asian eyelashes which are short and sparse. It did separate and make my lashes longer but I feel like this product would work better on people with longer lashes. It darkened my lashes and there were no clumps at all.
The packaging is rather bulky, the applicator is very thick and the bristles are kinda rough. I purchased this for about 7 dollars at Target and I guess it was worth it. I would probably repurchase cuz although my lashes are short I did like the overall results.

My fave DS mascara to date!! Very volumizing, builds fast and the bristles are great at separating! I think this is key to a good mascara!!

First, let me say that I'm asian and like most asians I have barely-there lashes (thin, short, and few). I ran out of mascara, and didn't want to walk 6 blocks to a department store to repurchase, so I decided to run across the street to a drugstore. This caught my eye because of all the commercials claiming this to result in "volumous, long lashes." So I thought for $8, I have nothing to loose. Well, I should have spent my $8 on two Starbucks coffee instead, because this did not do anything for my lashes. Nothing. Other than slightly darker lashes, my barely-there lashes were still barely-there.
This mascara is great for those who already have full and long lashes and are looking to slightly intensify it. But not for me.

Ok, so I just took this from my mom. I usually use higher end brands (Diorshow Iconic, Lancome Hypnose, Estee Lauder). This one beats them all. It will save you a considerable amount of money and you will get a very very similar effect to the one you get from higher end mascaras. I also found it really easy to use on my lower lashes. Usually, I tend to mess up that area..but not with this mascara! Love it !
