I had the terrible misfortune of forgetting my Lash Blast
mascara when I visited my boyfriend the other weekend.
Refusing to spend the day sin mascara, I dragged the
both of us to the CVS by his house. I didn't
have much cash on me, and per the recommendation
Marlena made on MakeUpGeek, I chose this
mascara. Oh, how I hoped I would find a mascara
to rival my love for the HG Lash Blast, but alas,
it was not meant to be. To find out more, follow the jump.
The packaging is very reminiscent of Lash Blast volume
to me, and I frankly like the bright yellow!
Then I pulled out the wand, and noticed the applicator
had a pretty unique shape. It's a spiral wand, but the
stopper of the mascara left a lot of product on the end
of the brush (as you can see below)
Application is pretty straight forward, but beware
two coats of this means you will have absolutely
no seperation of your lashes. If you want the full
feathery look with volume, this is not the mascara
you're looking for. However if you want people
to wonder if you're even wearing mascara in the first
place, this is a nice one to try. But really, the look
is super natural. No added volume, not much
length, really the only 'results' I could see was
that it made my lashes black.
Wear is okay. I have experienced some flaking
with this mascara, which it typical for cheaper
mascaras. I also find that as the day wears on
your lashes kind of stick together almost? Like
any lash separation you had at first
application is gradually lost as the day goes on.
Overall the best use i've found for this is as a
lower lash mascara because I do want a natural
look for that area. I was really disappointed in this
mascara, and probably the most telling thing
about how well this works is that my boyfriend
even noticed how poor my lashes looked that
day compared to when I used other mascaras.
