Wallet-Friendly Wednesdays: CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara
Who knew I would keep finding mascaras that would rival my famed Diorshow? I honestly didn't think it would be possible to discover another tube that would give my beloved favorite a run for its money. And to be quite honest, I'm usually too much of a mascara snob to use drugstore brands. But after much careful consideration, I decided to give in and try CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara — because I had read so many positive reviews, I figured I must be missing out on something. And you know what? All I can say is WOW!

Now, I must admit that when I first tried this mascara, I was not a fan. I didn't really see it doing much — my lashes definitely weren't longer or thicker, and I didn't even see much color difference. But I decided to try it again the following day, and then all of a sudden things looked so much better. My lashes were twice as long and twice as thick ... they were darker in color than I'd seen them in quite some time ... they were separated and lengthened without my even having to take my lash comb to them. A fluke, I thought to myself. No way could this happen AGAIN. So I tried a third time. And again, my lashes looked unbelievable!

Not only have my lashes now looked incredible every time save the first time — and maybe it's because the huge rubber brush took a little getting used to — but the mascara really lasts for hours and hours with no clumping, streaking or fading. I've tried it both with and without a mascara primer, and it seems to stay on perfectly fine either way.

So am I a convert to LashBlast? You'd better believe it!

  1. Yay! I love this mascara too. Funny thing is I find I never really like any mascara the first time I use it. Not sure why, but it seems to happen more often than not. LOL! In any case, this is truly one of the best drugstore mascaras on the shelves. :)
