Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara is a new volumizing mascara that offers a clump free finish. I’m not sure I really have issues with clumps…don’t get me wrong there are mascaras that clump occasionally but I blame the formula or applicator not necessarily my lashes. That’s not to say that clumping isn’t an issue some folks experience, in that case you might be seeking out a formula that will offer you a clump free finish.
On top of not having issues with clumps I wasn’t terribly excited to try Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara. I have not come across a single mascara from the Lashblast Collection that I actually like. For all the marketing and all the bells and whistles that comes along with their massive applicators I typically end up with a more natural fringe of lashes after use. You’d think all that fanfare would give me some drama but sadly, the finish from a Lashblast Masara is typically mediocre and just falls flat of what one would expect especially because most come with those HUGE club style applicators that look like they could do some major damage.
Perhaps Clump Crushed by Lashblast will change my mind?
I hate to go into a review knowing I’ll dislike a product but that’s basically what happened with Clump Crusher Mascara. I knew I was going to hate it but I ended up purchasing it anyway. I guess some part of me was wishing that this would be the one Lashblast product that would work.
According to Covergirl you can apply up to 30 strokes (the equivalent of three coats, not sure what math they are doing but ok) without the mascara clumping.
Clump Crusher comes with a plastic curved brush applicator that has bristles which are positioned super close together. This is part of the reason the formula resists clumping. Actually swiping on layer after layer after layer won’t result in clumping, I tried it. So if you’re a builder when it comes to mascara have no fear this won’t create a mess.
I personally didn’t like the drier formula and with added layers it begins to feel a bit crunchy however, it does keep lashes remaining very light and natural looking, the finish is almost fluttery and whisper-like. I don’t think it’ll win any major awards for volume but it does lend some length.
Although dry the formula doesn’t come across gooey and the perfect amount comes out of the tube onto the applicator which also aids in keeping clumps at bay.
Overall, I thought the whole experience with Clump Crusher was uneventful. I personally don’t like a more natural lash look. I look for the drama when it comes to mascara and like with most Lashblast products this failed to give me that drama. If you have shorter, stubbier lashes I imagine you’ll see better results. If you like a more natural lash look you might like this but if you want something bolder I’d skip it.
You’re going to run across a slew of raves on this one so I imagine it’ll be something you might have to test out for yourself to see if it’ll be a yay or a nay for you. Personally, I’d recommend skipping it as I really didn’t love the results…!
I look forward to hearing your experience with it.
