CoverGirl is the name in affordable cosmetics. The company has been around for a long time and it will very likely continue to rule supreme for many years to come. Why? Because CoverGirl is always morphing into whatever it needs to be in order to fit the wants and needs of an ever changing industry. Quite simply: Nobody does it better!
One of CoverGirl’s most prized cosmetics is its mascara. Considered the best of the best by makeup artists around the world, it has found its way into the makeup kits of Hollywood’s most elite. That includes the likes of cover girls adorable Drew Barrymore and the ever stunning Queen Latifah.
Recently the company decided to combine two of its best mascara products together – its highly popular LashBlast and its glittering Eyelights. LashBlast is CoverGirl’s most popular Volumizing mascara. It not only adds what every woman desires – fullness — but it also creates length and beautiful texture.
Eyelights add a shimmer of glittering color to a standard mascara shade to help play up each woman’s individual eye color. Together at last in LashBlast Luxe, these products provide the best of both worlds.
LashBlast Luxe comes in four shades. They include black platinum, black cabernet, black royale and black emerald.
The mascara couldn’t be easier to use. It applies beautifully each and every time; adding immediate volume and ultimate intensity. The extra hint of shimmer not only plays up the color but also makes the eyes sparkle and stand out more than ever before. It is a partnership made in heaven.
As with many CoverGirl cosmetics, LashBlast Luxe is hypoallergenic. That means it is safe for even the most delicate eyes including those that wear contacts. It is also safe for use with eyeglasses.
The mascara’s big brush, with its perfectly placed bristles ensures that lashes are made big, bigger, and the biggest yet with maximum fullness and perfect volume. The brush never over applies. It deposits only the amount of mascara needed to do the job at hand. The result is beautiful, memorable lashes that look oh so natural.
LashBlast Luxe also removes without any hassle. All it takes is a standard makeup remover or simple soap and water. What more can you ask? Well, perhaps its affordable price tag, which is around $8.
Here is my summary review:
Ease of application:5 stars. It is almost impossible to mess up this mascara. Whether you put on a little or add a lot, your lashes will look beautiful and perfect with each and every application.
Price: 5 stars. It retails for around $8; about the same as other comparable mascara.
Effectiveness: 5 stars. I don’t think there is a better bargain mascara on the market today.
Variety: 4 stars. It only comes in four shades. I find it hard to believe those are the only four shades that could play up natural eye color, but then I’m not a makeup specialist.
Claim accuracy: 5 stars. It delivers on what it promises
Packaging: 5 stars. LashBlast Luxe comes in a big pink tube that is easy to locate on the store cosmetic shelf.
Ease of storage: 4 stars. The tube is a bit fatter than most mascara tubes and, therefore, could be difficult to fit into the slots of some cosmetic cabinets like mine from Lori Grenier. However, it fits easily into a handbag and should fits into most cosmetic cases.
Ease of purchase: 5 stars. CoverGirl products can be found almost anywhere – beauty boutiques, discount department stores, drug stores, and even in some grocery marts. It can also be purchased online.
Product purchase probability: 5 stars. I like this mascara.
Retailer purchase probability: 5 stars. I got mine at Wal-Mart where I shop constantly so it is the perfect place for me to make a purchase.
Final rating:4.8 stars. This is a good, solid product.
5 stars – outstanding
4 stars – good
3 stars – average
2 stars – below average
1 star – poor
