I am a huge fan of CoverGirl and a lot of their products. They offer some really solid makeup at affordable prices. One of my go-to products from the brand is their LashBlast mascara in very black. It’s something I always have in my makeup bag and continue to repurchase.
Recently, I ran out of my LashBlast mascara and made a trip to Target to buy another. Instead of going with my staple, I opted for the LashBlast 24-Hour formula in very black. This mascara is not waterproof, but designed to stay on even longer than the original LashBlast formula.
I rarely give products horrible reviews because I think there are usually merits to any product, but I hated this mascara. It’s crazy how a mascara from the same line can be so drastically different and inferior to its original counterpart.
The first time I wore the product was at Amanda’s wedding two Saturdays ago. (See my bridesmaid look here!) It looked nice, but I noticed the formula was thick and a little harder to apply than the original. My real problem with the product wasn’t in how it looked, but removing it. At the end of the day, I washed my face and used my eye makeup remover. At the time I didn’t realize that all of the product didn’t come off. The following day I didn’t wear makeup. On Monday morning while getting ready for work, I applied the product again and noticed that it was hard to comb the brush through my lashes. It was then that I realized that some of the product was still on my lashes. My lashes looked clumpy. That night when removing my makeup, I took extra time to try to get the product off. It wouldn’t budge. I stopped using the mascara and it took a few extra days to completely banish the product from my lashes. I can’t imagine what the result would have been had I kept using the mascara every day.
I ended up throwing out the product after only a couple uses. It was a waste of money and I’ve since gone back to Target to purchase the original LashBlast mascara.
