In general, I’m a fan of waterproof mascaras. They tend to be less clumpy, they stay put longer, and they hold curl better. I have fairly long lashes, but they are fair, so I curl them with my Shu Uemura eyelash curler and then I like a super dark mascara that’s going to hold the curl and not drop my lashes the second I apply it.
But wearing a waterproof mascaras all the time gets to be annoying since it’s so hard to remove and it dries out your lashes. So I’ve been in the market for an everyday mascara, and that’s where CoverGirl’s new LashBlast Length mascara comes in. It includes a Elasta-Nylon formula that helps lashes bend without flaking, and I must say this mascara simply does not flake. It stays put and doesn’t clump, which is awesome. It also really lengthens my lashes–it’s perfect for day use and gives my lashes a really natural, fresh-faced look. You won’t get fat lashes with this mascara, but you will get noticeable length. It also washes off very easily with face wash–no eye makeup remover necessary.
However, I did find the color (I tried Black) to be a bit light and not a glossy intense black like I prefer. The mascara wand is also extremely long a little unwieldy because it’s so flexible. I like shorter, sturdier mascara wands, but it seems like every drugstore mascaras is going in the opposite direction with their mascaras!
Overall, I like this mascara for day use when you want a natural, fresh-faced look. I would like to try the Very Black shade next time and see if that makes a difference in the color for me. Also, just to let you guys know, this mascara does come in waterproof, too. Price: $7.79
