In Our Makeup Bag: Covergirl Lashblast Mascara
Is it just me or is there another “revolutionary” new makeup product introduced every freaking day?! Just walking into Ulta or Sephora (or even Walgreens!) sends many chicas into fits of hysteria, reaching for the nearest brown bag to regulate their breathing. It’s all so overwhelming.
So how can you know which product – among the sea of thousands – is the best? Which does what you need it to do? Which ones are worth the extra money?
Let me help. I don’t know every beauty product out there, but I’ve tested a lot of them and I’ll let you know which are worth the money (like Dior’s Skinflash Primer) and which are not.
What it is: Covergirl Lashblast Volume
Why this should be in your bag: Cuz Drew Barrymore says so in the commercial. Okay really though, while this is what initially enticed me to buy it (who doesn’t trust Drew?), homegirl was right. This mascara is under $10 (awesome), it’s waterproof (fantastic), and the brush is packed with tiny bristles to make sure that every lash is covered (hollaaa!). Drew called it the most successful mascara launched in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. It covers completely with great color and volume (I tested the very black option).
How to use it: Curl your lashes with a curler, holding down for several seconds. Start at the base and wigggle the brush back and forth until you reach the end of the lashes. I like to use the curler again before applying a second coat. Then, pointing the wand at your eye, swipe back and forth lightly on your bottom lashes.
Could my money be better spent on a cheeseburger? Nope. This mascara is great and so reasonably priced! Plus, it won’t clog your arteries. I’d definitely pass up a dinner on the town for this stuff; you won’t regret it.
