CoverGirl Lash Blast: Volume

Swatches & Review

I am not too big on wearing mascara because my eyelashes are hard to curl. I purchased the CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume mascara because I have heard good things about it & I had coupons, which made it a good deal for me to try.
This mascara comes in an orange tube with the orange fiber bristles. I have never actually felt bristles since the mascaras I usually buy have the wand already in the tube, and it felt like some silicone toys I used to have when I was younger. The orange wand does not really matter since the mascara is going to cover it up anyway.
The color I purchased was black. When I put the first coat on, there were clumps all over my eyelashes so I had to use a second coat (after wiping some mascara off the wand) to even them out & get rid of some of them. That was a bit irritating since some just flaked off my lashes and went into my eyes. Although it did add a bit of volume to my lashes, it took a while to dry so by the time it dried, my eyelashes were barely even curled anymore.

I have tested this mascara out a few times and it always gave me the same results. I have other mascaras that dries faster that actually holds my lashes up for a few hours so I guess I will just stick with those. I do not think I will even grab this to use anymore since it is such a hassle. This, I do not like.

What are your thoughts on CoverGirl mascaras? Are there any drugstore brand mascaras that you love & would recommend for me? Let me know! :)


  1. I dislike anything CoverGirl. I've never been happy with any makeup I've purchased :( Stila is the best mascara for me. Its pricey but it doesn't clump and it stays on. :)

    1. I think the mascara I tend to go for most is Urban Decay's Super Curling Mascara. That actually keeps my curls! lol. This was my first drugstore mascara & I'm not so impressed.
