Super lengthening, and defines like a dream. However, it lacks in the volume department if that's what you're looking for. Also, Cover Girl tests on animals, BOO. Just for that, the product only deserves a 3.
I have the shortest and most stubbornly straight lashes ever and this mascara is one of the few I have tried throughout the years that can keep a curl for me. I really enjoy the waterproof one over the regular formula because it does give you that extra strength to hold the curl, the only problem is that it is a little bit of a pain to take off, even with makeup remover. Overall though, this is my go to mascara and I use it daily!
I really loved this at first, but i noticed It likes to drain down to my lower lid and smudge. It made my eyelashes stand out at first, but throughout the day it slowly goes away. haha, I don't know if it is just me that notices that it does that, but for me it was alright.
LashBlast is so popular in the makeup community, it's almost redundant to write a review on it. But I digress; the original LashBlast is designed to simply volumize the lashes-it doesn't promise much else. Simple claims, simple standards to meet. And while I wasn't awestruck by the volume the mascara gave me, it did it's job well, and wore nonstop for over 12 hours, looking flawless by the time I removed it.
The shade I got was "brown," which is a little misleading. On the lashes, it does not look brown at all, but more of a rich, soft black. I did not have problems with the brush, because I have larger eyes, but I imagine people with smaller eyes may find the length of the wand annoying to use. The spikes on the wand are good at separating the lashes and loading on color.
It's cheap ($9 USD) and works well for what it intends to do. Personally, I like to use it best as a base to use a lengthening mascara over top of it. On it's own, it does well enough, but unfortunately it's nothing impressive.

Great Mascara :)
This Mascara is great in my opinion, it gives a natural subtle look, which is great for school and beginners :) the short bristles don't grab on to the lashes that much, so it doesn't lengthen the lashes that much. But it does add a bit of volume. I would rate it 7.5/10 :)
This mascara used to be my favorite. I stopped using it because I really wanted to switch to waterproof only and I didn't like their waterproof formula. This is still a great non-waterproof mascara. It's volumizing and you can easily comb out clumps and keep coating. I like my lashes to look full and thick and this does the trick after a few applications. I highly recommend this one for a budget mascara.
This is definitely my holy grail mascara because it does everything a mascara is supposed to. It darkens, lengthens, separates, and volumizes my lashes without clumping or giving me spider lashes. It literally coats every single one of my lashes, even the tiny ones that you may not have noticed exist at first if you have some lighter/finer lashes like I do. I've been asked on more than one occasion if I was wearing false eyelashes after applying this mascara, and since I wear thicker winged eyeliner on a daily basis, having my lashes stand out used to be a challenge.
I've repurchased this mascara several times and I've noticed two quirky things about it that might not make it right for absolutely everyone: I like the product best once I'm about 1/2 way through the tube because at this point it doesn't overload your brush with product which means you don't have to scrape off excess before using, and due to the size of the brush to get the lashes in my inner corners I have to turn the brush vertically to avoid getting any mascara on the skin by my tear duct/on my nose. Otherwise use is a breeze as long as you know when to stop applying.
This mascara's brush is the secret. The brush is the reason why I get absolutely perfect lashes every single time I put this mascara on. I swear, I feel like I could take on the world in this mascara lol. I've bought this one over four times because I like it that much (I kid you not).
