CoverGirl's Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara

Yesterday i said something about my favorite non-waterproof mascara. So, now it will be about my fave waterproof mascara... & its none other than the infamous Lash Blast from CG. I was not expecting that CG had actually beat Lancome on this one...but hats off on this product because it really is waterproof. No swimming or crying can tug my lashes down if they are coated with this amazing mascara!

Im pretty sure that most of us are familiar with this gigantic mascara tube. Most people who are on the look out for the best mascara have tried this out.

Get a blast of bold, volumized lashes - rain or shine! 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. In original, non-waterproof, too!

We all have our own favorites... when it comes to mascara, the list is endless because what works for others might not work on some....which makes it all the more hard to know what are the stuff to give a shot & to just ignore.

With Hypnốse being my fave non-waterproof mascara, i was really disappointed when i tried out the waterproof version of Hypnốse. Not only does it smudge, but its also clumpy...aside from the fact that its hella expensive.. :-( So after my horrendous experience with it, i just decided to see for myself what the fuzz is all about Lash Blast. I always see someone mentioning that this product is their favorite mascara because their curls really stay, etc....

So, since its way cheaper than Hypnốse, i said to myself "why not give this a try?", try i did!
& i am so happy with the result. For the first time in my life, i am able to sport a curled lash all day!

As for volume, this did not volumize my lash, but what the heck..if its able to keep my curl intact, i don't have a problem with that. To be able to open my eye is one of the main reason why i use mascara & this product does the job. It doesn't clump on smudges...even if i sneezed! Yay for that!

At first i find the brush a little awkward to use because its too big. It's really gigantic, but you'll get used to it. Oh & because of that big wand, you will not be able to coat your inner lashes. Well, i don't...for fear of poking my eye with that giant wand...i'll happily pass on my inner lashes being coated.

Again, when it came to mascara wands, i think L'oreal Telescopic is the best one out there. Telescopic is actually good too, but for now, i find myself reaching for this & Hypnốse.

One thing that i don't like about it is that, like most mascaras, this is very hard to remove.

I have to wipe it with a makeup remover for a couple of times to ensure that i completely remove it. No, let me rephrase that..I have to remove it first with a classic cold cream. I believe that cold creams are still the best in removing makeups...afterwards, ill wipe it with a makeup remover. I even have to use 2-3 cotton pad per eye to make sure that everything is gone...*sigh*....Oh, well, i can live with that!

My first Lash Blast mascara is already on its way to the trash bin & i need to hoard on mascaras. Im just waiting if there would be a scheduled sale on a shopping mall near me. So, if you are on the lookout for a waterproof mascara, make sure that you include this in your 'mascaras-to-try' list.
