Review: CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara in Black Brown

CoverGirl Lash Blast Mascara in Black Brown ($8 ~ .44 fl oz.) - An oldie but a goodie! I've used this before and keep going back to it. As you can see, my tube is a little beat up, but I only hold on to one mascara at a time (because how many tubes can a person use up in three months?) and this one just goes wherever I go.

It's an inexpensive mascara (compared to designer brands at least) and it makes my lashes look lovely. Besides, drugstore mascaras (at least most of the ones that I've tried) can really match up to designer mascaras these days. I think the brush "volumizes" my lashes quite well and I've never had any problems with clumps or my lashes sticking together.

I find it a little difficult to get off and have heard of others having the same problem, but it's nothing a little olive oil can't fix. I use the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes and I like them a lot, only they're not so great on mascara. It takes a bit more time and patience, neither of which I have in abundance. When I have trouble removing mascara, a little olive oil goes a long way and works wonders for getting off tricky makeup (because I really don't want to spend $34 on the M.A.C. Cleanse Off Oil and I just think that's a crazy amount to spend on makeup remover. I've heard it works great, but the makeup I put on my face costs less than that!). Plus, olive oil is very moisturizing and, being the Italian that I am, I always have some on hand to make a quick plate of pasta. It can be found at drugstores, Walmart, Target, and Ulta.

With love,

What's your go-to mascara right now?
