want natural looking lashes? this is the mascara for you
this mascara is very good at lengthening so I give cover girl that much because it seriously does lengthen. What I find is that this formula weighs my lashes down. Yeah of course it makes them a lot longer but they are long and heavy to the point where I have to recrimp my lashes which is a pain in the butt.
This was made for me!
No matter what mascara I use, I always swipe the wand on a tissue to remove most of the product from the wand. This always allows me to build up the intensity I want on my lashes without getting heavy and clumpy. Cover Girl Lash Blast Lengthening Mascara has eliminated that step. It's a drier formula and the brush head comes out of the tube with no heavy product. The brush head is thin which lets me get ALL of my lashes covered (like Maybelline's Lash Discovery brush but amped up with more bristles). Because it's a drier formula, I apply 3-4 coats for outrageous length without the weight or clumps. This one is a keeper for me!
I just started to wear makeup so I wanted something simple a not to clumpy. This is a great mascara for getting started. It doesn't add to much length, but it doesn't clump, and it drys really nicely without and messes. I definitley reccomend it if you are starting to wear makeup or if you want your child to start wearing makup. I loved this product!
It did nothing for me
I just expected more. I find that waterproof mascara tends to hold really well. After curling my lashes it seemed to weigh it down. This one didn't work out for me. One positive? I like the rubber applicator. I'm pretty much using other mascaras and using this brush to separate my lashes afterwards. I paid for it, might as well make it useful right? :)
One of my Faves
I absolutely love this mascara. I wear it once in a while like if I'm going out shopping with my mom or when I'm at work. It lasts me the whole day with out flaking off. My eyelashes look longer and thicker. This mascara also makes my eyelashes look darker. I highly recommend this mascara to anyone!
Covergirl's Lash Blast Length Mascara was released after the super success of the original Lash Blast, (now known as Lash Blast Volume). Covergirl claims that this mascara's "elasta-nylon" formula is flake free and flexible, and coupled with their "longest brush ever", Lash Blast Length will give you "extreme, look at me! lashes" that are 80% longer. Lash Blast Volume is available in 4 shades, and water resistant, and non water resistant versions. Unfortunately Covergirl tests on animals, so please be conscious of that when using their products. I received this as a Christmas gift from Mummy, she purchased it at Ulta. I don't know exactly how much she payed for it, but Covergirl mascaras usually go for $7-8.
Packaging for Lash Blast Length is very eye catching. A long, thin, tapered, bright yellow plastic tube and cap. Covergirl and Lash Blast Length are written on the tube in silver. It definitely stands out in the mascara section. The shape of the tube reminds me of a rounded version of the Maybelline Lash Stiletto.
Covergirl calls this brush their longest ever and I believe it. It's very thin, and about an inch long. Before you dip it into the tube for the first time the short, plentiful bristles were bright yellow, matching the tube. Aside from the long brush, the wand is also quite long and thin. I find it unweildy and intimidating. This mascara isn't the easiest to apply, it takes a little technique
The wand, once correctly lined up with the base of the lashes, needs to be slowly wiggled through. Normally I'm not a wand wiggler, but it's necessary for Lash Blast Length. Without wiggling, the brush, you won't even be able to tell you've applied mascara, regardless of how many coats you apply.
What kind of results do you get from Lash Blast Length? Do you really get 80% longer lashes? I don't know if it's 80%. Maybe 40 or 50%. Your lashes do get pretty long with this mascara. Look at mine, they're reaching for the stars! It's a really nice amount of length, but I wouldn't call it "Extreme", or "80% longer", but it's good enough for me. Many people complain that you don't get enough volume from this mascara, but keep in mind, Covergirl doesn't make any mention of volume in their product description. But really wiggle your dang brush. Hasn't LMFAO taught you anything? Wiggling is the key to success. With three, wiggled on coats, I can get a small, but noticeable amount of volume. To be fair, my lashes are naturally on the thicker side.The best part of Lash Blast Length is the lack of clumping. You couldn't clump this mascara if you tried. It's probably good for mascara n00bz.
Like the other two Covergirl mascaras I've reviewed, Lash Blast Length holds up great through out the day. Even at work I don't get a single flake or smudge. That's impressive for any brand. Despite not flaking, Lash Blast Length removes super easily, with just water, or a little bit of makeup remover.
I recommend this mascara if you have average lashes that you want to add a nice bit of length to, with just a smidgen of volume. This is a great beginner mascara, because of it's clump free nature, and fairly natural look. I like Lash Blast Length, but I tend not to reach for it often, that alone has made me decide not to repurchase. It's just too average.
1 of the best drugstore brands i've come across.
Although 16 bucks is a little pricey for a drugstore brand mascara, I think this is totally worth it. It goes on smooth and is a nice rich color. It has long lasting staying power even without my mascara primer. Perfect for what I like which is a lot of length. I highly recommend this mascara!
Fantastic for Length!
The "expensive" version of over-the-counter mascaras (for us college students), this mascara, ringing in at around $8.00-$9.00, does a fantastic job of lengthening and separating lashes, giving them a doll-like appearance.
I wouldn't say this mascara is incredible, but it's not bad either. I love long lashes but hate using false lashes. I think they look way too obvious, fake and don't work for many situations. I just prefer something more natural. But this does give decent volume and a curl. The color pay off is good too.
