I don’t love Lash Blast.
Sorry, is everyone going to throw tomatoes at me now? I’m not sure I get the hype that surrounds Covergirl Lash Blast and every single variation I’ve tried of this mascara was always such a fail.
But I purchased Cover Girl Lash Blast 24HR Mascara in the hopes that this one be the Lash Blast that changed everything.
Let’s find out.
Let’s get this out of the way, I liked and I disliked it.
Yup, that’s my final thought and I’m sticking to it.
I disliked the traditional plastic club-like applicator that Covergirl embraces for their Lash Blast line. It scares me. For serious. This thing would do so much damage if I let it and could possibly poke my eye out or worst. It’s a weapon not an applicator.
I both disliked and liked how they are SO bloody serious about the 24 HR they slapped in the name. “Bold lashes up to 24 hours…” Dude, true story. The formula stays and stays and stays…..I had no issues with it flaking, fading, or migrating anywhere. It’ll wear well on a mad dash through space and time with David Ten Inch and deep sea diving if you will. The formula is very long wearing and even the oilest of oily lids will adore how strong it holds. I dislike it because it’s a spoiled little child to remove. Oil based remover is a must have to get this off! But when they say 24 hours, know they mean it!
It does a fairly good job with both volume and lenght but you have to work at application a little bit. This is one of those mascaras where you want to get the applicator under your lash line and wriggle it up and out to get the best results. My photos below are a bit misleading as I tried the mascara several times and didn’t end up with as great results as you are seeing below. The look below takes a little work to get it down correctly. If I don’t take time to apply I end up with limp lashes and a bit of a spidery look. The mascara has a tendency to apply and end up on my upper lash line as well so I have to swipe away with a q-tip. It also clumps a fair bit as well if you aren’t careful. Build up isn’t great since it makes lashes crunchy and stiff however it does produce the best and most dramatic results if you use a few layers. This doesn’t produce a lot of curl either so if you want lashes that flick upwards this might not be the one for you. One thing that drove me up a wall was when I did apply it correct some of the mascara would get under my upper lash line. This kinda gives that eyelash in my eye feeling and it drove me bonkers all day and kinda of made my eyes water.
Overall, I’m not sure Covergirl Lash Blast 24 HR Mascara is every going to make it onto my hit list but it wasn’t a total fail. I both love and hate it. It has good points and bad. This one is something you have to try for yourself as you’re either going to really love it or just not care. I will say if you’ve tried and disliked Lash Blast in the past this one is considerably better than past releases. As for fans of the line already, you’re probably guaranteed to love it.
