Now y'all know I don't like to spend a lot of $ on makeup if I can find something cheaper or more reasonable. I've never tried the pricer brands, like Dior Show. I just can't afford it. And one area where that philosophy works is mascara. I've tried lots of mascaras, and I can't stand the cult-fave Maybelline Great lash. I normally use Cover Girl's Lash Blast mascara--in the orange tube. It works perfectly on my eyelashes. I was super excited to see the release of Cover Girl's Lash Blast Fusion.
It promises volume and length and was $7.99. So how did it work? Warning: Crazy Eye Pics AHEAD!
Here's my eye before. I realized later this shouldn't have been (a) at 8am with puffy eyes (b) without concealer (c) I look scary! And my eyes are blue-green. Anyway...
After 2 coats
Both eyes after 2 coats. No add'l eye makeup or eyelash curler so you can see the mascara better.
So how did I like it? To me, it seemed pretty much like my regular Lash Blast, with slightly longer lashes. I also don't let my lashes dry between coats so I don't have clumpy raccoon-eyes. Would I buy it again? If the regular Lash Blast is cheaper, I'm going for that since the results seemed the same. Maybe next time I'll do one eye with my usual and one eye with the mascara I'm trying.
What's your fave mascara? What makes it so great?
