CoverGirl Lash Blast Fusion Mascara - Review


CoverGirl Lash Blast Fusion Mascara, $8.99
Hello, beauties! If you've been following my blog for awhile, you'll know I'm on the prowl for my Holy Grail drugstore mascara. I am the owner of the most pitiful, short, baby lashes known to man, so I dream of finding a mega black mascara that gives me the volume and fluttery length I crave. Over the past few months I've been testing all sorts of mascaras hoping to find that hidden gem. Today, we'll take a look at one of the mascaras I've been giving a hopeful go.

The CoverGirl Lash Blast Fusion mascara is a multi-function product that claims to make lashes "bigger, fuller, longer-looking, and more dramatic". The fiberstretch formula is supposed to lengthen, while the large tapered brush is meant to reach every last lash. In my personal experience, I wish the mascara overexaggerated my lashes as much as it hyped up the claims. Honestly, I just didn't see it.

Because my lashes are so short, I take the claims of lengthening like I would a scout's honor. Seriously. After multiple coats, I saw no significant addition to lash length. Strike one! It did add a touch of volume, but not enough to be considered "dramatic". Strike two! I also purchased this mascara in Very Black, and it was far more subdued than very anything. Strike three! Off to the bin you go!

The real standout for this mascara is the bright, sleek packaging and the lovely brush. As a short lashed lass, I much prefer brushes that aren't super full and bristly, as it tends to get the product all over my lids. This brush has rubber bristles that get smaller towards the tip, really allowing the product to coat all the lashes without give me panda eyes. That's one thing I think CoverGirl got right.

If you already have longer lashes, then this could make for an alright natural looking, every day mascara. If you're like me with lashes that need a lot of oomph, this is not the droid mascara you're looking for. Alas, the search continues!

Have you tried the CoverGirl Lash Blast Fusion mascara? What's been your most disappointing mascara purchase?

Stay gorgeous, peaches!



  1. I need to try this! I've heard so much hype about it.

    1. I'd definitely only recommend this mascara if your eyelashes are already suitably long. Otherwise, it won't do much that any other standard mascara can do. xx

  2. Sounds like we have exactly the same eyelashes, I struggle so much with mine! The best I've found is the Maxfactor's masterpiece max!


    1. Girl, the lash struggle is real, isn't it? I have serious lash envy of so many people it's silly! Thanks for the recommendation. We don't get Max Factor in the US anymore, but I'll definitely look into having it shipped over. You're awesome! xx
