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,

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.

this is my favorite mascara! I bought 4 at a time because I use it so much and its worth every penny. it makes my eyes pop and look amazing. I will always be a fan of lash blast. I wish I could see more in the tint of glitter one. The regular lash blast does the job with only a couple brushes. F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!!

I am not sure why she thinks her lashes look good- I agree with the comment about having 8 eyelashes..... I personally love the mascara over the top of volume exact mascara- it makes HUGE lashes!

love this mascara. I saw the commerical a couple of weeks ago and had to get it! i am addicted to mascara. i was pleasantly surprised when i put it on. It made my eyes pop and i have never had a mascara do this before. I love the fact that it also comes off easily with soap and water. I would recommend people to try it. It is great that it is an affordable mascara and gets the job done! this is now a staple in my makeup bag!

I must say I like the picture with "naked eyelash" the makes the lashes look so much longer and softer..and more, instead of some fat ones.

i tried lash exact waterproof and had a hard time with the rubber bristles. i'm a fan of applying mascara from root to tip and found that the bristles were so long and spread apart that i got product on my lids as well as my lashes. i also feel like it clumped up after a few weeks of use too. i'll stick to my diorshow :)

I've tried almost every mascara out there, and Volumeexact is my absolute favorite. I noticed alot of people said they love DiorShow, but I hated it. It made mmy eyes sting for 10 minutes every morning, and the little plasic thingie kept coming out on my brush, so I would just have this huge clump of mascara on it. I will never buy it again!

Ok, first of all lilstacylou that's a little mean! I'm sure she wasn't trying to do all of her make up for us! Anyway I really like Lamcome Hypnose too Glamourgasm, and I just started wearing a base underneath and it really helps! I just ordered Lancome's Virtous Courbe or something like that, it's suppose to curve more then hypnose...

I just bought this about a week ago during vacation. I love it. But I think I have to make another stop to get the black color. They only had the black brown color when I bought it :[

I got this mascara when it first came out. I hunted it down! I was happy with the results it gave me -- thick, lush lashes. The only problem is that it tends to fade a little by the end of the day, but since it doesn't clump, it's easy to reapply. I'm with shugah, I like CG mascaras!

I was actually kind of scared to try this mascara after reading some early reviews on, but when my mom decided to get it for me, I couldn't say no. I am very pleased with the results and have gotten compliments about my "fake" eyelashes. I like to use LashExact when I don't feel the need for so much volume and drama. In either case, I'm really liking these new CoverGirl mascaras!

Sounds good as a last minute pick up

I agree with cnlew. I prefer the fan-style lashes. So far Diorshow (I use waterproof) is my Holy Grail mascara for thick, long, dark lashes. I find the big fat brush works really well for me. I wanted to really like Benefit's Bad Gal (which has a similar brush), but that stuff only looks awesome for the first five minutes -- once you blink, it smudges like crazy. I've tried a couple of those mascaras with the plastic prickled brushes (like Max Factor Lash Perfection), and they've always made my lashes look stringy and clumpy.

I tried it and it did nothing for me...I'll stick to my Diorshow mascara.

i'm not really impressed by the look of this mascara. i totally swear by diorshow mascara or rimmel eye magnifier but i think i'm gonna try the lycra lash extender ambermarie is talking about!

Atiyah: Mine doesn't have the bent wand either. Someone(forget their name, I'm sorry!) responded to me last night saying that you can bend the wand in the tube, but I tried that this morning and it doesn't bend. Its not a big deal to me, I still love it!

I'm not so sure I like the way it looks. Instead of having a fan of 20-25 beautiful eyelashes, it looks like she has just 8 or 10 really fat lashes.

This looks similar to lash exact and that stuff makes my eye lashes so clumpy.. :(. I think I'll just stick to Maybelline Full and Soft..I love that stuff.
