CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara Made My Tiny Lashes Visible!

Ok, we're getting away from nail stuff today, I hope you guys don't mind. But I simply had to share this. If you hated it, tell me, and I'll try not to do it again. :D

So, some women are born with amazing lashes. You know the ones- long, curled, sexy lashes that frame their eyes beautifully. I always wanted lashes like that. Instead, I have tiny, fine lashes that are hard to see, and I also have a fat face with deep set eyes. This means that my lashes are all but invisible, unfortunately. I dream of the day I could get lash extensions... or just visible lashes!

So I was provided with a sample of CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara from BzzAgent. My first action was to run to the web to check it out. There I found that it's $10 at WalMart! $10, for drugstore mascara... for COVERGIRL drugstore mascara? This better be something special...

Well, I got it. I tried it. It's not perfect... the brush for it is weird. It's thick and stubby, and seems hard to control to get your corner lashes covered. And yet, this stuff really IS special. It's buildable, so you can put on as much or as little as you need. It's amazing, in that it both thickened my lashes and lengthened them, visibly. It even curled them a bit! I mean... look at this comparison!

Pardon my big scary head there, but really... do you see the difference? No smudges to clean away, no clumpy ickiness, and holy crap, you can see my eyelashes!!!

It also isn't waterproof, which makes me want to cry. Because even though it makes my eyes look this awesome, my eyes are deep-set, and this will wear off between my laughter and sweat in no time. I cannot wear non-waterproof mascara. But still, if you can? This stuff is a dream.

So there. If you're looking for high-end performance from a drugstore mascara, add this one to your list of ones to try. It won me over. It won me over so much that I'm abusing exclamation points. :D


  1. I don't mind not talking about nails! :)
    This product is worth sharing your review. The mascara does make a difference. Blasted that it isn't waterproof. :(

  2. I'm glad you agree! Honestly, if it was crap, I couldn't post it, I'd feel guilty. At least, not this happily! That picture says it all, really!

  3. Wow, this mascara works really great. The difference is remarkable. Thanks for this post :)

  4. Don't worry, Cover Girl bound to make waterproof version! Because of my Oriental lashes, I can only wear waterproof mascara.

    I had the orange CG LashBlast, it's good but I prefer Maybelline's Colossal Volume Express. BOO HOO!

    Can you believe that UK does not carry ANY Cover Girl?!?!?! Hopefully waterproof version would be out in a few months when I go back to Canada.

    Check this review on this, I'm a bit of a colour geek and I find this hilarious:

  5. Cel- You're welcome!

    Stylishly yours- My eyes are hooded and deep set, so I feel your pain. I have to wear waterproof mascara if I wear any at all.

    You know, I can believe the UK doesn't carry CoverGirl. Usually I'm not fond of CG products, that's why this absolutely blew my mind! Then again, you guys have Gosh cosmetics, and for the nail polish alone... *swoons*

    Seriously. Gosh Rainbow? Gosh Holographic? Gosh Gasoline? Ohh, I could easily buy up the whole Gosh nail polish line without even blinking! You know, if I was in the UK and had the money to do that. :D

    That review is too funny... no, yellow and orange do not make purple!! That made my head hurt! *laughs*

  6. girl i LA LA LOVE this mascara! and you took the words right outta my mouth, it's soooo buildable! exactly what i need in a mascara. perfection!

  7. I thought so too, Kellie! I just need waterproof! *laughs*
