The Covergirl Lashblast mascara has received so many rave reviews. I’ve seen so many people writing about how they love this mascara, and my friend recommended it as well, so I decided to try it out. When I first got the product, I was really surprised by the size of it. I would call this mascara a chunky-looking mascara. However, the packaging is strangely attractive.
Mine is orange, but there are other colors, depending on the type of Lashblast you buy. The wand is notoriously large, which admittedly does make it harder to apply on bottom lashes and corners of eyes. The wand is one of those latex or rubber wands, and is covered with orange spikes all over the tip of the wand.
The color is very black. I have black hair, and black eyelashes, so this is not such a big deal for me, but for those who have lighter natural hair colors and are looking for a very black mascara. So thumbs up on the color and pigmentation of this mascara.
As I mentioned before, the wand is very, very thick. I definitely have trouble getting into the corners of my eyes, or on the bottom lashes, especially because my lashes are rather short. In addition, I do have problems with the amount of product that comes off on the brush. The lip of the mascara container is not small enough, and when I pull the wand out, it turns out with a lot of clumps of the little spikes. I solve this problem by applying the mascara in a zig-zag pattern.
However, I do love the volume this mascara gives me. I love my Clinique lash double mascara, but it really does not offer volume. It gives a more natural look. This mascara gives excellent volume to the lashes. I have no complaints about the volume. I really have not seen a mascara that has ever given me this much definition.
I really would recommend lashblast to people who are looking for a lot more volume than what they get with other mascaras. I would be a little careful with application, but I think that the volume is worth the little inconveniences.
