Covergirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara

Truth: this wasn't supposed to be the post you see today (lashes twice in a row *gasps*) but the universe had other plans so it's the one you get. You don't really mind, do you? I didn't think so. Mascara is a total beauty staple. I think it's safe t say that if you're a makeup wearer, you're a mascara wearer. As much fun as a luxe, designer mascara can be from time to time, I tend to stick with drugstore-type brands because it let's me try them all without going broke. Plus, you can get some really great formulas. A win-win really. When the opportunity came along from Bzz Agent to try Covergirl Lashblast Fusion I was totally game. Want to know how well it fares? Read on!

Covergirl offers a few different varieties in the LashBlast range, with Fusion being best for you if you want a bit of everything from your mascara as it offers volume and length. I happen to be one of those who wants everything from my mascara, thus this sounded like my best bet.

Let's start with the silicone brush, which Covergirl calls oversize, but it's not as massive as you might be thinking (I've seen bigger...) It's long, but slightly tapered and has smaller bristles at the end to help grab all the little bitty lashes that often hide from large brushes. When silicone brushes were new, I was a huge fan, but have kind of backslid and steer my love more towards wire-style. That siad, I don't mind this brush. It gets mascara on there, does so pretty cleanly, and as mentioned, gets all the little lashes too.

When I first used this mascara, it was a bit wetter than I would prefer, but a week of 'maturing' after that initial use and it was the perfect consistency. I found this to apply nicely and love that you've got some play before lashes start to look overdone- I'm lash greedy so I go for a few coats if the formula allows it. I find I can do about three-ish coats before my lashes start to stick together too much and I know it's time to put down the brush. I love that this formula does add a good amount of volume and length, but I could use more hold/curl. This just doesn't hold the curl as much as I'd like (which is why I tend to go for waterproof formulas.)

Overall, I quite like this mascara. I'd pick it up again (in waterproof for added curl) as it ticks pretty much all of my boxes for an everyday mascara. Oh, I should add, it also wears very well with no flaking, smudging or colour transfer (no panda eyes!) Are you a fan of any of the LashBlast mascaras? Which one is your go-to?
