I've been using my CoverGirl Lashblast mascara for almost 2 months. Unfortunately, it's definitely not one of my favourites.
I almost always curl my lashes before applying mascara - unless I feel lazy or in a rush.
What it claims to do:
"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."
First, I think the brush is too thick and bulky to get around to the shorter lashes at the inner corners of my eye. Next, I find the mascara formula doesn't help hold up my curled lashes. I noticed around 3 hours after application, my lashes have lost its curl and poking straight out. To me, I want my mascara to be able to hold up the curls and last all day. My ideal mascara is to be able to curl my lashes without needing a eyelash curler. Therefore, since this mascara can't hold up the curls, it really is no use to me.
Now I don't have a problem with smudging and it doesn't clump my lashes. Also, it doesn't get flaky.
In terms of the package, I like how the brush doesn't create a mess at the opening - unlike some of the other mascara brands I've tried.
