CoverGirl Lashblast Mascaras

Because I have an addiction, I've tried out 3 different CoverGirl Lashblast Mascaras. 
Here's my take on them:

Lashblast Volume Blasting Mascara
The claim:
"LashBlast's patented volume-boosting formula and patent-pending brush are designed to max-out each and every lash, leaving you with the ultimate big lash look."

Lashblast Length
The claim:
  "The Elasta-Nylon™ formula flexes without flaking, giving you extreme, notice-me lashes all day long."

Lashblast Fusion
The claim:
"COVERGIRL's first ever volume + length mascara! The fiberstretch formula and oversized brush make every little lash bigger, fuller, longer -looking and more dramatic."


 My take:
Lashblast Volume - One of the best drugstore mascaras I've ever used. Volumizes and separates. The best of this bunch.
Lashblast Length - Doesn't do anything. If you layer it over Lashblast Volume or Fusion, you do notice a little more length, but not enough to warrant purchasing this even at a drugstore price. It's a skip.
Lashblast Fusion - Is nice, but isn't any better than Lashblast Volume. I don't notice any additional lengthening.


Ok, so there's my review on some of CoverGirl's Lashblast mascaras. 
Have you used any of them? What did you think?

okay so here's the thing. i haven't worn mascara since highschool b/c i was convinced it was making my eyelashes fall out (and i didn't want to cause wrinkles when i washed it off...even then i was worried about aging - so wrong, but so right)

so anyway, last weekend i used some estee lauder i got as a gift and thought - surely this can't be it?

you're readin' my mail katie!!

Katie-great review! I need a mascara that doesn't run at all. Lately, I have been skipping mascara b/c my eyes water a lot or if I yawn they get watery and my mascars smudges. Any recommendations?????

I have been wondering about that first one! I am a Benefit Badgal lash but am always looking for a good backup.

Wanted to thank you for your sweet comment on Walk of Fashion - totally made my day!

There are too many mascara's out there. I think there should be a law against all of the false advertising. Using fake eyelashes in mascara commercials...a little deceiving.

Zabrinah said...

I totally agree with this! So much. Thank you. I swear by the first one! It's amazing (I have itty bitty eyelashes sometimes, but not with the lashblast volume!)


:)

Best wishes from one blogger to another,

HATE the newest lashblast - clumpy, horrible formula, no lengthening. Nice review!

I use Maybelline and it works pretty great. I've never really liked MAC much.

Joanne Faith said...

Thanks for that...I've been looking for a new mascara. I'm using a Napoleon one ATM and it just isn't doing what I'd like it to do..

Love the volume! Great pick.

Josie said...

I've been using the same everyday Covergirl mascara for years -- maybe time to trade up?

great review, i'm still on the search for the perfect mascara and i think i'm going to get the lashblast volume now!

Audrey Allure said...

Great review & thanks for the tips! I usually use Maybelline, but now I'm thinking I should also try the Lashblast Volume :)

Rachel said...

I actually haven't tried any of these. I always read bad reviews on the Lashblast mascaras. I love my Maybelline Full & Soft though!

Dobbygirl said...

I'm using the Fusion and am not impressed, I'll try the Volume one next. Thanks!

I am OBSESSED with LashBlast! I get depressed when I run out!
