BGM Flashback: CoverGirl Lash Blast Mascara

when i first wrote this post about CoverGirl LashBlast mascara, way back in january, i really liked it, but had no intentions of it becoming my go-to, everyday mascara.

what a difference a short little-less-than-a-year can make! i love LashBlast, and think CoverGirl really got it right with this one. the effect it gives lashes is amazing and once you get used to the ginormous handle, it's a cinch to use!

CoverGirl has introduced LashBlast the latest mascara that promises "...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.".

i have been using this mascara now for a couple of weeks, and i must say that it really makes my lashes full. i have always been a "lengthening-formula" girl since i naturally have thick lashes, but i had heard about this product for a few months. i decided to try it--big lashes are in for spring after all!

the brush, i must say is huge. i was a little surprised, but i have used benefit's BADgal mascara in the past and the brush is comparable in size. however, LashBlast's brush bristles (say that three times fast) are made of a rubber material. i like that even after one coat, my lashes looked noticeably fuller. it did take me some practice getting a handle on the fat (and very orange) brush handle, so that for me was a downer. but... because of the great big lash results i got--it does lengthen slightly-- i continued using it.

it will not replace my everyday mascara, but i love using it every couple of days or so to give myself a bigger eye look. i give it a beautiful recommendation! ;)
