I finally bought the much-reviewed CoverGirl LashBlast mascara earlier this week. I must say, I am very impressed. It's truly one of the best mascaras I've used - and I've tried a lot. The rubber applicator made me a little wary at first, as I haven't liked others I've used in the past, but I didn't experience any problems with this one. The mascara itself is great - it goes on evenly with no clumping at all, lasts all day and doesn't flake off. My lashes appear longer than they do with other mascaras, thicker too. LashBlast is definitely going on my Must-Have list.
