♡ A Quick Review - CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara

January 28, 2013


I'm a huge fan of mascara in general - I think that if I could only ever use one type of product, it would most likely be mascara. So of course, considering its well founded status as popular yet affordable, I had to try CoverGirl's Lash Blast Volume mascara. 

The formula of this mascara is great - it left my eyelashes looking full and thick with a little bit of added length (though I did find that it added a lot more volume than it did length). Best of all however, it didn't smudge or flake at all. It stays in place all day yet isn't too much trouble to remove with a little bit of Bioderma. What more can you ask for?!

My only slight disappointment with it is the size of the brush. Despite separating and adding volume to my lashes wonderfully, I found it impossible to apply the mascara without getting smudges from the brush on to my brow bone. However, I am particularly clumsy so this might not bother everyone, and even though it was a bit of a pain, it was nothing a cotton bud couldn't fix.

Overall, I've really enjoyed using this mascara and would happily purchase again, though it hasn't quite knocked L'Oreal's volume million lashes off it's podium as my most favorite mascara!

As CoverGirl isn't a brand available to buy in shops in the UK I bought mine for around £8 (including shipping) on ebay.

  1. I agree!! Love this mascara. I like the brush but at the same time I don't. I like the bristles but I get clumsy with it because of its size x

  6. The orange packaging really is a treat as it makes it stand out in the midst of our other beauty products! I love the plastic/rubber like wand as it is great for separating the lashes. Great to hear that the formula is good although I do find that the brush is a little too big!
