Mascara, the one product that I find women have a love affair with. We love it ... but very few of us are in a committed relationship to just one brand. I too fall into this category. There may be seasons that I go back to the reliable ones, but I'm quite certain I've never purchased the same tube of mascara twice in a row. Now in all fairness I'm quite harsh in my judging. I expect the trifecta of drama to happen with every swipe of the brush; it must lengthen, add volume and curl. If any one area falls short, I'm not buying the tube again.
This mascara for the most part has passed the test, well at least enough that I've bought this type 2 or 3 times before. It's CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara. It's the one in the orange tube, don't get the other colors . . . (see the last comment about the green tube)
Here's the proof
Length - Much longer lashes
Volume - Each lash appears to be wider, but they aren't clumped together.
Curl - I do not curl my lashes with an eye lash curler and this mascara still gives me pretty good lift. I have noticed they will straighten a little through out the day. If you did curl your lashes, this mascara would help the curl stay.
This mascara can be a little thick, but I tend to prefer a thicker texture to a thin one.
The plastic brush can take some getting use to. It seems to be a little fatter around than a regular mascara wand, but I find I've adjusted to it by the 2nd or 3rd use. (Note-When running late in the morning, do not get in a rush applying your mascara quickly with this brush. One's eye, when poked by the little plastic bristle will water profusely, potentially ruining your eye make up and making you even later. I may or may not know this from experience. :)
Occasionally, I've noticed the mascara flaking off my lashes as the product is running out and I'm getting near the end of the tube.
As for the green tube, CoverGirl's LashBlast Clump Crusher, it does exactly what it says. It's so good at removing clumps it also removes all the product from your lashes meaning I had some length, minimal curl and no volume. I made the tube work, but was happy to toss it when it was empty.
