Covergirl Lashblast mascara is regarded the top drugstore mascara for many years in a row. It’s almost become a staple in the youtube beauty guru recommendation. I purchased a tube for around $7 USD but you can find it cheaper at drugstores in US. Since I have decent eyelashes, I got the brown one because I wanted a natural everyday look and the regular jet black mascaras make my eyes look too dolled up at times. I got the normal kind and not their waterproof one. They also have it in black, very black and brown black variety.
All of the LashBlast mascaras have the wands with little silicone teeth in the color of the package(orange in this case), versus traditional bristle kind. They are packaged with a temporary cap on the tube, so that you can see exactly what the wands looks like in the box. The tube is much larger and thicker than any other mascara tubes. I found the orange bottle adorable.

This mascara gives my lashes great definition and volume. I don’t know if it’s the brush, but it does an excellent job accentuating my long lashes and doesn’t go on clumpy. If you’re looking for a great voluminzing mascara this is the one. Without using curlers, primers or lash combs, the LashBlast mascara makes the lashes look that good. The wear is pretty long too, it didn’t even flake off onto my face, but it will flake after you rub your eyes after a few hours of wear.
I took before and after photos with the one coat of the mascara (pardon my unruly brows):
To sum it up-
Pros of CoverGirl LashBlast Volume mascara
-Does not clump.
-Innovative curling brush.
-Brown mascara can be used to set your unruly brows.
Cons of CoverGirl LashBlast Volume mascara
-Some might find the tube a bit hard to hold. Its thick , at times slippery and the way it’s angled, might slip out of your grasp as you’re applying it to your lashes.
I love this mascara for everyday wear. Its gives the right volume to my lashes without screaming that I am wearing mascara. When I do go out on special occasions I use my Estee Lauder Double Wear Mascara in Black but for everyday wear, LashBlast in Brown works great for me. When I get done with this tube, I’ll probably be trying the waterproof Very Black version. Cover girl has other versions of their LashBlast range, but none of them are so popular as the original orange one.
