    I bought this product because it caught my eye with the bright orange packaging, and the commercial was rather convinving. So I got home and was actually kind of excited to use it. And when I did, I think i stroked it onto my lashes about a million times, to make it look really thick and long.. I wasnt so satisfied. And I was really upset because I got the waterproof one, and without paying attention I got the brown color, and it looks horrible, like mud on your eyelashes. Its also really chunky and dries up really fast, and flakes.

    I like the look of full lashes and I don't think this mascara does what it promises to do. I have to apply a few coats to get the fullness I want. I don't think I would buy it again

    I was psyched when I bought this product because i looked at the little rubber brush thinking how on earth could this make my lashes clump together?!

    sad news is thats exactly what happened. my lashes were one big black clumpy mess.

    It could have possibly been my fault though because I like to use more than one coat or mascara and i'm not used to using water proof meascara but i bought this because a friend recommended it to me. If i had the chance to go back i'd probabaly buy either cover girls lash exact which i had a good experience. lengthens lashes and no clumps!!!

    I bought lash blast because it was cheaper than my regular mascara, lash exact. I found the container huge, and the brush way too big. i can't help but get mascara all over myself because the brush is stupidly big. I would not buy this again, my lashes were no more amazing than when i use lash exact.

    I've used this product several times now and overall like it. I guess I still don't have down the curling technique however. I've been off chemo for four months now, and my lashes aren't yet as long as they use to be, but this mascara does the job and makes them look nice and long. The only drawback for me is the large handle. Makes me feel like I'm about to drop the wand, but with each use, I'm getting better with it. This is a product I will keep using and recommend.

    Being a sucker for innovation, I like trying new ways to do old things. I found the container a bit slippery in my hand so didn't feel like I had a lot of control of the brush due to the smoothness of the plastic. My lashes looked great if I applied slowly, curling the brush away from my eyes as the package instructed. My beef was how quickly the product dried up - after only a few weeks it's clumpy and either empty (weird) or genuinely dried out (and I know not to "pump" the brush in my mascara, which for those of you out there who aren't aware, it forces air into your mascara tube, speeding up the drying out process). Good for a short-term mascara but nothing revolutionary after it clumped up. I wouldn't buy again, going back to my Maybelline Full n' Soft favourite.

    Twenty. Twenty's my number. I have used/tried/hated/loved/thrown out/'inherited' about twenty different types of mascara. Of all twenty, which is my favourite? Well, I honestly can't say. I find mascara is like shampoo/conditioner. The first few times you use it you see the difference and you love it or you hate it, but eventually you're not going to see any change in your hair and you'll end up buying a new product just so you can see the difference again.

    Mascara is just like this.

    The first few times I used LashBlast, I was impressed, loved it, it made my lashes more prominent and I used it everyday. But eventually I just didn't care for it anymore and wanted something different. So I tried another high definition mascara and loved it! Somewhere down the road I switched back to LashBlast and loved it all over again.

    To me, cosmetics is about change. We like to see something different every now and again on our faces/bodies. We embrace change in hopes that somebody else will notice. Nobody notices the same lashes or the same hair or the same outfit, unless you change location and friends. Variety is the secret to getting noticed, even if it's noticing yourself. Admit it, you love it when you check yourself out in the mirror/window reflection and there's something different about yourself to look at and admire. And there's nothing wrong with that - except maybe the price it could cost.

    So, love it or hate it. LashBlast is great if you want something different to try out and keep around like a cute ex-boyfriend until you're no longer bored with him.

    So I have to admit that it took me a little while to warm up to this mascara. I do also have a tendency to think that most cheaper mascaras just won't do the trick for my lashes. Which is also why I wouldn't rate it right away... I wanted to give it a few chances!

    It took a few tries before I was able to get it right... but what I found the result to be was nice, natural lashes. Maybe it was a little too natural for me?

    I find that the trick with this one is you have to put on tons of layers to build it up. What I liked about the results (because of the cool brush) was that there was very little clumping - no eyelash comb needed! And my lashes stayed soft. This is a great everyday mascara, but that's it. I didn't find it to be extraordinary.

    Another thing is the packaging. I found it to be a little too bulky . I prefer a sleeker, slimmer container and applicator. But otherwise, overall it was good.

    Oh, Cover Girl, why bright orange?! ...Hmmm...probably so I can find it easier in the makeup bag.
    But this mascara is so good, I could never lose it. It volumizes, offers a hefty amount of curl and makes my long, spindly lashes long and plump. They are thicker, bigger, sexier. They're rubinesque!! (Funny how what we want for our lashes is the OPPOSITE of what we want for our bodies?!) The big, porcupine-like brush may seem a little intimidating, but after you see what it can do for your lases--sans curlere nonetheless!--you shall never fear porcupines again. This will be your new best friend.
    When CG first launched this mascara, I know Makeup Alley (a review site) went gaga over it and the boards where rocketed into havoc over LashBlast. Everyone wanted, searched and basically HAD to have the amazing halloween orange mascara.
    Months later, I still understand why. Is it so amazing that you should get into a fist fight with someone else over the last tube? ...Um, no. (Legal charges could be drawn up, my dear.) Will you ditch your Shu curler? Maybe.
    What this mascara won't do: completely rid you of clumps, create lashes from a lashless lid (just put the falsies on!), stay on forever (unless you get the waterproof version--but then you will sacrifice a bit of volume and curl).
    If you do get the waterproof version, keep in mind that it goes on thinner than the original and you'll need your curler beforehand for the same amazing results.
    And, unless your uber blond hair is platiunum, don't bother with the "Brown" shade. It's way too light. Stick to Black/Brown for a natural look (yes, even with this mascara!) and black for a more "wow!" look. Sometimes you can find a "Glossy Black" or "Blackest Black"...they appear to be a bit more blue-black if you like that look.
    Ultimately, go for it!

    I've heard good things about this product and finally decided to purchase it. I bought "very black" for 8.99 at shoppers (turns out it was actually on sale)...anyways I couldn't wait to get home to try it out and I must say it lives up to the hype. Lash blast did not clump and made my lashes look longer and thicker. I usually don't like drug store mascara or Cover Girl products for that matter but this mascara has changed my mind. I would recommend this mascara to anyone. Cover Girl Lash Blast still comes second to my favorite Benefit BadGal Lashes though!
