There was a lot of hoo-ha about this mascara when it was first launched. The huge brush simply screamed volume, and the tiny bristles promised clump-free lashes. I’ve read many good reviews on it, and when it was finally launched at Priceline, I grabbed one (the waterproof version), just before my holiday.
Get a blast of lush, volumized lashes! LashBlast’s patented volume-boosting 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!
Instant volume and fullness
Smudge and smear-proof
Hypoallergenic and suitable for contact lens wearers
Unfortunately, this did not work for me. Not at all. I’m afraid I have to say that this does not work for Asian eyes (please let me know if any of my Asian readers who have tried this actually liked it, yeah?). The brush is simply too big to accommodate our short eye lashes. I don’t have very short Asian eye lashes, but they’re not long either. When I tried this on, I had to be very careful not to smudge my face, simply because the brush was so big.
Many a time, when applying the mascara, I did smudge my skin. And I really hate this from mascaras, especially after I’ve done up my face and still have to be very careful in removing the smudge without creating a hole in the foundation.

So nope, I didn’t like this mascara at all. As the brush was freakin’ huge, it did not curl nor volumnise my lashes at all. I’d be better off sticking to mascaras with smaller, normal brushes. Plus the tube is huge compared to other mascaras, thus taking up valuable space in my makeup bag. To those with short Asian eye lashes, I’d suggest you to give this one a miss.
Lash Blast? More like lash blah to me. Who wants to take it off my hands? It’s yours for free :p Just make sure you have eye lashes that go on for miles. If you do, I hate you. Okay I don’t *fingers crossed behind my back*.
Cover Girl’s Lash Blast mascara retails at AUD17.95 and is available at Priceline.
What I like about it: As a mascara on the whole, it’s okay, I guess.
What I did not like about it: Massive tube, massive brush for my Asian lashes. Sigh.
