Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara review

Doing Drugstore: Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara


There's been a lot of hype leading up to the launch of Cover Girl Lash Blast—so much so that I've actually had a hard time tracking it down. Finally, Walgreens received a shipment, where I picked up a tube in black for $6.99.

After seeing so many samey-samey mascara wands, it's fun to see the fat orange tube, bent wand and prickled brush of Lash Blast. It's all just a design-geek thing, but still, it helps the product stand out. For my full review, including before-and-after pics, read more



First, the good. The mascara goes on smoothly and evenly, without leaving clumps. It also separates lashes and adds a very slight curl. It gives a little bit of that false-eyelash look without crossing the line into actual fakeness, and it doesn't flake. I don't think it appears to lengthen lashes as much as thicken, separate and define them. (Check out the pictures and you'll see what I mean.)

There's not much to complain about with this product, except that I don't like the feel of the wand in my hand. It's a little too short and stubby for me. Aside from this quibble, though, it's an impressive drugstore mascara that's bound to challenge Great Lash in popularity.
