Covergirl LashBlast Volume Mascasra Review

8:04:00 PM

Has any of you found your Holy Grail mascara yet? I know that's a rather hard question to answer. There are a lot of brands to choose from, all of which comes with different formulations. So, that's primarily the reason why I keep hopping from one mascara to another.

I've been using the Covergirl Lashblast Volume Waterproof Mascara in Very Black for about five months and so far, I could say it is above average and I like it.

Product Info from CoverGirl
Get a blast of bold, volumizing mascaras! LashBlast's patented volume-boosting hypoallergenic mascara formula and patent-pending brush are designed to max out each and every lash, leaving you with the ultimate big-lash look. Now in waterproof, too!

Retail Price: around $7.99 in the US
retails around Php600 pesos in our local CoverGirl counters

I bought this off last December 2013, but didn't open it till early this year. (around March I think). When I used up my Bobbi Brown Extreme Pary Mascara, this is the next mascara I opened. I always make it a point to use up my already opened mascaras, so as not to waste any of it. Unless, if it's really bad and does not do anything to my lashes, I toss it out. hehe

I honestly really like the huge ass applicator of the CG lashblast mascara. It separates and coats my lashes really well and it holds up the curl. I also appreciate how the plastic bristles gets smaller on the tip, so it helps with coating mascara near the inner corner of my eye.

I'm the type to skip eyeliner on most days, and just apply mascara right away. So, I usually prefer those mascaras that can really add volume to my lashes make it appear like I have a line in my upper lash line. This mascara does that for me.

Look at how the the Covergirl Lashblast Volume mascara makes a lot of difference on my lashes. I also coats my lower lashes really well.

This mascara has excellent staying power on most days. However, I have experienced that it smudged when I was crying while watching a movie. LOL

What I like about it...
* inexpensive, bought it at
* holds up the curl on my lashes really well
* defines and adds a lot of volume to my lashes
* lengthens my lashes
* separates my lashes and does not clump even with more than two coats
* the consistency is just right, not too thick nor too thin
* stays all day on me
* no irritation experienced

What I don't like...
* I got the waterproof variant, but tends to smudge a bit when wet
* stubborn to remove even with a two-phase makeup remover, so I end up pulling my lashes.

My rating: 4 / 5

If only this wasn't so hard to remove, it would have been great. Also, when I make mascara mistakes, it's hard to clean up the mess since it leaves a stain. Unlike, other mascaras I've tried, when I make a mistake, I just let it dry then easily sweep it with a clean brush. Overall, it's an awesome mascara. It definitely adds a lot of volume without clumping.  You just need a really good makeup remover so you won't have any trouble with removing this mascara.

Until next time.

  1. This is one of my faves, even if it's not perfect. It does smudge a little bit but I've had the same success as you have in prettifying my lashes using this product :)

  2. I think its a great product. Problema ko din sa mga waterproof mascara yung pagremove nito. haha. I may try this product based on your review, pero hindi pa ngayon i'm still inlove with my Maybelline Falsies eh :)

  3. OMG, even two-phase makeup remover doesn't work? ahhh sayang, it looks so nice pa naman on the lashes. I wanted to try CG mascaras too, some people I know say it's better than maybelline's.

  4. "huge ass applicator"...I can't even LOL. I haven't found my HG yet, but I really really like Maybelline's Rocket so far! I've always wanted to try Lashblast Volume, since everyone loves it so much, but I'be yet to get around to that.
    BUT HOLY SMOKES your lashes are amazing with this on. Also, strangely, I find a lot of 'waterproof' mascaras smudge on me. RUDE.

  5. now i see what the hype is about :D

  6. Still haven't found my HG mascara yet. Right now I'm using Fashion 21 Double Up and Maybelline Hypercurl.

    What's up with mascaras that are fat. Sayang sa space :P

    Pero this one looks great on you. Don't know if it's the way you apply it or if it's the formula pero I like that the ends are still somewhat wispy.
