I really wanted to like this, given all the great reviews here on MUA, but it just isn't me. The brush is too chubby to wield properly, the formula thickens up too much and it can get a bit crunchy. I understand people prefer the non waterproof version, but I feel I need WP in order for my lashes to hold their curl. It does have a nice, deep black color and can yield pretty results if combed through enough, but overall I think I will be sticking with Full n Soft. Just wish they made Full n Soft this black. :(

I love the regular lash blast but I absolutely hate lash blast waterproof - it's everything regular lash blast isn't - wet, ridiculously clumpy, heavy, and a nightmare to remove. When I bought it I had no idea I'd be getting an entirely different mascara than the original....

I love the non-waterproof version of this so I got this one to use in snow and summer and, although not quite as good as the original, it is fabulous! It's very volumizing and lengthening and seperates and holds curl. The only thing is it clumps a little more and is a little more stickyish and dry. I do recommend a ton though and will be buying it again.

so far this is my favorite or most used mascara. it's not totally amazing but then again my eyelashes are almost non existant so I definitely won't be getting to lashes that they advertise on tv. the formula I think is pretty good. it does lengthen my lashes but doesn't thicken. the brush give a fairly well application and separates each lash so that there are no clumps, but..! the brush is so thick that applying can be a real pain. I would love to use it on my lower lashes which I do at times but since the brush is so fat it's very rare that I can do a good job without either poking my eye or getting the product on my under eyebags. it doesn't wear off which is good and doesn't flake (unlike the maybelline falsies) but I think they should make the brush thinner.

I've used this several times in the past 6 months and I'm really not impressed. The volume is alright I've had better, the packaging is horrid the tubes way too bulky I wouldn't be able to fit this in my wristlet If I wanted to, and worst of all it is the biggest pain to remove. I need to scrub my lashes to get this off (which I know isn't the best) and I have eyelashes fall out. No matter how gentle I am the product tends to stay on my lashes which is disappointing I really wanted to love this because I had heard so many good things

I decided to try this based on all the good reviews. Honestly, I don't understand what all the hype is about. The brush is too big, I hate the bristles, and the formula dries so rock hard, that it makes my lashes brittle & they fall out in clumps. The only reason why I gave it 2 lippies is because it does have good staying power & I thought no mascara could be worse than this until I tried Revlon Grow Luscious. I will not buy CG LashBlast again.

I have such mixed feelings about this mascara. I like using waterproof because you never know when those tears are gonna flow:-p I bought this mainly for my trip to Hawaii knowing that I will need a VERY good waterproof mascara. It certainly delivered on the waterproof part, but I don't know why it smudges? I just wore this yesterday (all day) and went to a banquet dinner at night. When I got home I got the shock of my life - it smudged under both eyes! Imagaine my embarrassment! There were even flakes on my cheeks and on my lids. I will never buy this again!

This mascara really filled out my lashes and gave them a bit of length. It flaked a little. But my biggest problem was that I could never get it off without removing half my lashes. It was like tar. even waterproof makeup removers couldn't tackle it.

Ok, so when came out, I was so excited. I have normal eyelashes, not too long, not to short, just right...
so when I tried it on, I was AMAZED! it made my lashes look great... but 7 hours later... I looked like I really bad under eye circles =(
this didn't stay on at all...it smudged/ smeared & its supposed to be waterproof...
I was very disappointed... I will not buy again.

I really wanted to love this mascara. It does what I want: holds the curl, gives me a bit of volume, some length and seperation. There's minimal flaking, and no smudging. Sound great? Yes and no....
HOLY CROW COVERGIRL why did you make this stuff so impossible to TAKE OFF? I lost track of how long it took to rub this mascara off with makeup remover, it's crazy. I lost way too many eyelashes for this product. I want to give it a 4 lippies cause it really is pretty decent, and you are gettng a lot of product for your money, but it's kinda useless if it continues to make me lose lash after lash just from one day of use! Even despite the amount of product you get, that darn massive infamous brush gets mascara all over the eyelid! Gah!
Could've should've would've been better. Won't be buying again, oh well.

Update 01-10-11: This is a second update about removal of this mascara. I find that using a mixture of Olive oil, Castor oil, Cocoa butter and Vaseline effectively removes the mascara completely after massaging it in for 30+ seconds. Hope this helps the people who find this to be difficult to remove.
Update 28-09-11: I find this mascara to be easily removed with Vaseline, since its first ingredient is Petroleum distillates. We all know that oil attracts oil, so using Vaseline, I was able to get it all off with two rounds, using my normal facial cleanser after. Do note that I layer Maybelline's WP Colossal under this mascara to give me some length. I find this combo to work best for me, it gives me great volume, good length and holds the curl extremely well. I've read all the reviews of LB Fusion, thinking that it might be a dupe for the combo I'm using right now, but it is said to not be able to hold a curl at all. Apparently it drooped the curled lashes of some users, so if you're thinking about trying that one, think twice. Personally I'd rather use what I am sure of so I'm sticking with these two. They are both very worthwhile mascaras, and I find them to be better than some HEs I've tried in the past. To counteract the drying problem of this mascara, I've started to use castor oil on my lashes every night and it has helped condition them so that they don't fall when I remove my makeup at night. I've also used cocoa butter before with good results. I will most definitely repurchase.
This orange fat tube gets a thumbs up from me. I bought this essentially to layer with my mascaras that smudge under my eyes after a long day, as I remember it being anything-proof. I think that if I used this mascara on it's own, it would damage my lashes a lot, because it is extremely hard to remove. On the other hand, the formulation and the rubberish bristles are very good at helping me creating voluminous and almost false looking lashes. It makes me wonder if I should get the normal version to layer with this one! :) this definitely holds a curl and since I bought it in Very Black, my lashes were impressively defined compared to the results I'm used to get from my other mascaras. Overall I like this mascara for what it's intended to do and I would not hesitate to repurchase it.

From what I had read, I was prepared that the brush might be awkward to use and difficult to hold, but I don't find it to be. (I don't know what people are talking about.) I actually really like the compactness of the bristles. It goes on smoothly and evenly, and I seem to get less on my face and lids than with some other brushes.
I tried this in both the Waterproof and non-Waterproof formulas. They're both pretty good, but I definitely prefer the Waterproof version. It doesn't smudge or clump, and it's amazingly long-lasting! If I don't clean it off at night, it will last for a few days. I'm not exagerating... a few days!
I'm able to get a nice "feathery" look that's mid-way between natural and dramatic. Over-all, a good mascara, although I'm not sure if it's really that much better than CG's "Professional" mascara, which is much cheaper. Also, I wish the tube weren't quite so ugly!

Pros: Makes you lushes long and dark, great staying power, but comes off with a make-up remover for waterproof eye make up.
Cons: the tube is simply too big; the wand is not easy to use, too large, bristles too sharp..
Verdict? Will repurchase because of the price, but am looking for something more perfect.

I have short, straight Asian lashes and am striving for dramatic, thick lashes. My dream mascara would volumize, hold curl, and not tear out my lashes when removed. CoverGirl LashBlast does indeed give me dramatic volume. It holds curl better than my go-to Maybelline Full n' Soft. The waterproof has great staying power, lasting me through my workout without drooping, flaking, or irritating my eyes. Unfortunately, it takes a little while to remove with baby oil, but does come off eventually. Other cons: the large wand makes it difficult to coat the inner lashes without getting messy and it clumps occasionally. However, the clumps are tiny and I find sweeping a clean mascara wand solves the problem. Overall, LashBlast was worth my money and made my lashes look full, but I'd like to try other mascaras that are easier to apply before I go back to it.
Covergirl LashBlast runs $7-8 at Walmart, but there are often $1 off coupons in the paper and BOGO sales at drugstores.

I have this mascara, and honestly, after experiencing both the normal version and the waterproof formula, I have decided that I might like the overall results of the normal version better. This waterproof version is great for summer, especially in Florida's humidity, and it's good for not having to re-apply, and even when you cry and shower and play sports. But it didn't give me as good as result as I remember receiving with the normal one. It's really hard to take off this version, but the normal one is easy. They're both amazing, but I've noticed the waterproof version works better when mixed with other mascaras. I will definitely be repurchasing the normal version faithfully, and if I haven't found a better waterproof mascara before next summer, I'll re-buy this one. As with anything, it has its advantages as well as cons. I always try different mascaras yet always happen to come back to Lash Blast. It's amazing! People always compliment my eyes, first thing they say to me, actually, and ask me what I'm using. I proudly recommend it because everyone who's tried it after, has thanked me and told me it worked wonders. The con is that it might have made some eyelashes fall, which is not unheard of, but still the best mascara out there -- nearly clump free (though I did find that the waterproof one might have even less clumps), it's bold and dark, it's filled with volume, and curls. I happen to love the awkwardness of the packaging and bottle and wand. Makes it feel as though I'm "wanding" a miracle. :)

I wanted to try a waterproof mascara and a friend of mine recommended I try this. However she never told me how horrible it is to remove this mascara. Lord even with my Lancome Bi Facil makeup remover this would not budge. I did however liked that it gave great volume and kept my curl pretty sky high. I liked the darkness of it, didn't smudge and tbh the brush was not as cumbersome as ppl made it out to be. I gave good separation and some length. I'd actually give this a 4 if it wasn't such a B*@*% to get off. But since it's so hard to take off it has to be a 3. At the end of a long hard work day or going out I don't want to have to fight with my makeup to take off. I did notice that as I was finishing off this bottle of mascara it began to clump more, made my lashes fall, and start smudging a lot.... strange. Yet still horrible to take off.
This was so hard to take off it has made me sworn off Waterproof mascara.... I sort of want to try the Maybelline Full N' Soft in WP but too scared to.
Final thoughts, I think I will try this mascara in the non-waterproof and see how I like it.

I too fell victim to all of the grand reviews of this product. Needing a waterproof mascara for summer time, I bought this for a mere $7 at my drugstore. I immediately did NOT like the tube when I took it out of the package. It was slippery in my hand and I felt it was very awkward to hold in my hand when applying. I actually dropped it twice the first time I used it. I found the wand to be too big and bulky to really get at my lashes. One plus was that it didn't clump on me, but I felt the look after applying wasn't anything to write home about, not great but not horrible either. Approximately an hour after applying, I happened to walk by a mirror at work and much to my chagrin, I had little black flakes all over my upper cheeks from the mascara, & I only applied one coat!! ICK!!! The straw that broke the camels back was trying to get it off at the end of the day. Neither my normal jojoba oil or eye makeup remover would budge the stuff. I had to RUB the heck out of my eye with a cotton pad to even get some of it off. NOT GOOD!!!! I suppose if you want a mascara for your wedding day, this might work, but I'd be scared of the icky black flakes. Try Maybelline full 'n soft waterproof. AWESOME stuff.

I don't understand all the love for this awful mascara.
First of all the brush is the size of the moon.
I HATE THIS BRUSH WITH A PASSION!!!
It's like trying to apply marcara to your eye with a beach ball. It's almost impossibe to coat every lash because the brush is so effing big. I had to spend an exta 10 minutes in the morning twisting and turning the brush to get this gunk on.
I also don't see much volumizing going on here. I bought this a year ago, tried it once and tossed it. I bought it again on sale and with coupons due to all the love it gets on You Tube. Used it again and it still sucks.
Why or why the giant azz brush Cover Girl???
There are so many better drugstore mascara's out there like Maybelline Lash Stilleto.

I was wearing Dior show. and i couldnt aford it anymore. so i went to the drugtore. and i needed a water proof one because i cry ery easily! and its summer. and all of my friends swear on lash blast. so i tried this. I found if you start at the base of your lashes and wiggle up. that clumbs it right away!! But if you just go up then it wont clump. i put on ix coats of this mascara (dance performance!) and i didnt have ANY clumps!
