The VIP (Very Impressive Product) Pick of the Week #33

Posted 10/28/11 at 05:13PM by Audrey Fine

The Product: CoverGirl LashBlast Luxe

The Price: $6.

The Company Spiel: "The blackest black LashBlast formula, now tinted with Luxe shimmers. The giant Luxe brush helps blast lashes to their biggest, boldest, and most beautifully shimmering."

The Real Deal: My name is Audrey and I'm a mascara-aholic. Something about the promise of long, lush lashes never fails to get me to plunk down the debit card -- even though I'll probably be disappointed. Again.

Such was the scenario at CVS the other day. I was drawn to this mascara -- or, rather, I was drawn to a photo of Drew Barrymore looking downright lashtastic. And since $6 is a small price to pay for beauty of that magnitude, I went for it.

Boy was I surprised. LashBlash Luxe is aptly named. It lengthened and thickened and darkened my measly lashes and, while I didn't end up looking a thing like Ms. Barrymore, I didn't care because I looked like ME, only with better eyelashes!

The Upshot: No denying it: this mascara worked to give me what so many before it had failed to -- volumized, long lashes. The formula isn't too thick and doesn't clump, plus the wand works very well to fully coat each lash. I'm beyond tickled.

What's your favorite mascara? Please share -- I'm happy with this for now but I never know when the urge to get a new tube will hit.

    I like the original Lash Blast, but I haven't tried the luxe version yet.

    The CoverGirl Lash Blast Luxe was not a favorite of mine. The brush was too big for me and it flaked pretty bad. My absolute favorite mascara is the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes. This will increase the volume of your lashes by 400%, won't clump, won't flake, and is the blackest black!

    There are so many great drugstore mascaras for under $10, why spend more? And @jenn8779, thanks for the tip! I wouldn't want to get mascara under my contacts for sure.

    One word of caution on this mascara- the luxe shimmers do tend to flake off and can get in under your contacts. Unfortunately, I discovered this the hard way...sigh. However, until that occurred, I was thrilled with the results. Those who don't wear contacts, this an awesome mascara. For those who DO wear contacts, try the LashBlast Fushion instead...it gives the same results.
