“I've been obsessed with mascara since I started wearing makeup. Rather than completing my look with a bold lip, I always try to make my eyes be the focal point because they're one of my favorite features. My two ride-or-die mascaras are COVERGIRL's Lash Blast Volume (orange tube) and Lash Blast Fusion (purple tube), so I was super excited to test out the new Last Blast Clean Volume mascara. Right off the bat, I loved its mint green packaging and knowing the formula was clean, cruelty-free and vegan. It's also infused with argan and marula oils to condition lashes, which is a nice extra touch.
“One of the things I love about COVERGIRL mascara is the brush itself because it has a special way of perfectly fanning out lashes, so I was happy to see the Lash Blast Clean Volume had the same type. In terms of application, I thought it went on smoothly, but I did notice that the formula was a tiny bit more clumpy than I'd hoped it would be. I was still able to achieve the length I typically go for and I was happy they still had that fanned-out look, but it took more swipes than usual to coat my lashes to my liking. I didn't notice any fallout after a day's wear and the formula washed off without any harsh scrubbing, which is a huge plus for me. Overall, I really liked it and will definitely add it to my COVERGIRL mascara rotation.” —Rachel Gulmi, Managing Editor, Branded Content
