Mascara Monday: CoverGirl Lash Blast Fusion

Sooo, CoverGirl drops a new CoverGirl Last Blast. Is anyone just as excited as I am? The original promised insane volume. And according to my review…it delivered! Lash Blast Fusion is all about volume AND length? Was it hot? Or not so much?

CoverGirl Lash Blast Fusion mascara

Price: 5 out of 5
Packaging (Brush Wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5

What it claims:
“Use Lash Blast Fusion to get a blast of volume plus incredible length! It’s the perfect fusion of Lash Blast’s super-volumizing brush and a buildable fiber-stretch lengthening formula that work together for dense, long-looking lashes!” (per packaging)

The truth:
Yay! I’m happy to see another fiber mascara on the market. And with the Lash Blast wand? Awesome!
What I loved about it: The wand!

Which is totally ironic because it took me forever to like the wand on the original…

What I didn’t like: The volume isn’t as va-va-voom as the original.

Overall:  I was SO excited to review this mascara. I mean, who didn’t love the original Lash Blast?  That’s really a rhetorical question, y’all. I know somewhere out there isn’t the biggest fan of it. I thought it was the ideal mascara for separation and volumizing.

Now first things first, know that the review in this mascara review is Black Brown. I usually use black mascaras and for that reason, the mascara may not POP as much as it does in my other mascara reviews. But you know what? I actually like the natural look that black brown mascaras give. I’ll have to be trying some more of these.

CoverGirl Lash Blast Fusion is a fiber mascara. Remember what a fiber mascara is? It’s all about little itty bitty “fiber-like” that are intended to attach on to your lashes. They are like washable extensions. You can get a good view of them in my video review.

Fusion seems to be a little lighter on the lashes than the original Lash Blast was. I also find that it clumps less. You can get a good 2-3 coats with this without entering Clumps City. And that’s a huge plus in my book. I didn’t experience any flaking and like most fiber mascaras, it rinses off without any problems.

So in terms of it being a good mascara on its own…yes, I think it is! But when comparing it to the original Lash Blast, I don’t think it’s THAT much better. They are both good. Period.

Would I recommend it?: The thing is…I experienced a good amount of length with the original Lash Blast. I can’t really see much of a difference between the two other than the visible “fibers”. If you haven’t tried the original Lash Blast, give this one a whirl. Or, you if you REALLY liked the original and just want to see if you can maximize your length, give this one a try.

Until next time…..

    I have got to try this! The packaging is pretty :)

    I reviewed three Lash Blast mascaras – Volume, Length, and Luxe – and really didn't like the applicator. I was clumping all over the place, really had to go through contortions to get my endmost lashes. The Length, though…I love that stuff, I love the brush, and I love that it performs as well as BE's Flawless Definition mascara at about half the price.

    I think I may steer clear of this one because of my problems with the applicator. But thanks for the review!! My mom is looking for a new mascara, now that Max Factor's being discontinued in the US, and this may work for her. I'll suggest it!

    Kay So Heres The Real Deal. The Original Lash Blast Mascara Was Amazing! The Waterproof Worked So Well That I Couldn't Even Get It Off My Lashes With Soap And Water. So I Decided To Try Fusion When It First Came Out And It Absolutely Sucked. It Was Clumpy And Didn't Work To Add Length At All. I Was Very Dissappointed. :(

    THIS PRODUCT IS GREAT!!!! I will never go back to another mascara brand or type again. The orange tube was my favorite till i bought this one a few weeks ago and the NOTICEABLE improvements it makes exceeds my expectations more than any product has in the market. Sadly advertisers “Amp” up their products to make sales on them, but this mascara really truely does the job that its makers claim it to do. The is ONE thing that i noticed besides the much longer / fuller lashes, it does have a slight odor that isn’t necessarily bad, but just weird being i haven’t ever had a mascara that had given off a sent before.

    I just got this mascara and I am hooked! CoverGirl wands are great for no clumps/good separation, better than the Falsies in that department. The packaging is gorgeous (love the purple!) and it’s just overall fabulous. I love the water resistant formula because it lasts all day but comes off easily at night. TOTALLY recommended.

  • wow! i am totally going to CVS and purchasing this mascara. your lashes look great! you’re so pretty 😀
