I'm a huge fan of mascara in general - I think that if I could only ever use one type of product, it would most likely be mascara. So of course, considering its well founded status as popular yet affordable, I had to try CoverGirl's Lash Blast Volume mascara.
The formula of this mascara is great - it left my eyelashes looking full and thick with a little bit of added length (though I did find that it added a lot more volume than it did length). Best of all however, it didn't smudge or flake at all. It stays in place all day yet isn't too much trouble to remove with a little bit of Bioderma. What more can you ask for?!
My only slight disappointment with it is the size of the brush. Despite separating and adding volume to my lashes wonderfully, I found it impossible to apply the mascara without getting smudges from the brush on to my brow bone. However, I am particularly clumsy so this might not bother everyone, and even though it was a bit of a pain, it was nothing a cotton bud couldn't fix.
Overall, I've really enjoyed using this mascara and would happily purchase again, though it hasn't quite knocked L'Oreal's volume million lashes off it's podium as my most favorite mascara!
As CoverGirl isn't a brand available to buy in shops in the UK I bought mine for around £8 (including shipping) on ebay.
