Back in June I unboxed a Flare Box by Topbox and inside I received Covergirl’s Full Lash Bloom, to see the other items I got in that box, click here.
I was saving this product as a back-up for when my mascaras finished, however, one day I was tired of using one of my other mascaras and decided to just open this up and use it. I was surprised to find that a month later, this became one of my favourites for everyday! Here are my thoughts on this product;
On Walmart.ca the price is only $8.47. This is about the cost of many drugstore mascaras so you’re not breaking your wallet to purchase it.
I love plastic brush applicators. I find that for me it really allows the formula to coat easily on each individual lash. I also love the fat barrels that a lot of drugstore brands like Covergirl, Maybelline, Rimmel etc. house their mascara’s in. This is not only cute and bubbly looking but makes it much easier to grip and apply.
For everyday makeup I usually like brown black mascara because it is softer. Since this came in a beauty box I got black. Regardless, it’s not so dramatic colour-wise and I can easily wear it to the office. It lasts all day and does not flake! I love that my lashes look cute and wispy throughout the day and into the evening. Sometimes when my mascara has been on too long, my eyes start to get irritated but I don’t get that with this formula.
This also nicely fans out my eyelashes. I can easily maneuver the brush to get into the corner of my lids to create a dramatic look. One coat for me gives great volume, if I did do a second coat I could probably built more thickness. I feel like this really creates a beautiful, soft, looking lash.
My Lash Bloom is not waterproof, so it easily removes when I wash my face. This is not to say that this product doesn’t have longevity, I don’t wear it on rainy days or when the weather is too hot to avoid it smearing but on nice days this holds up well without fail! I know that Covergirl has released a waterproof formula that I may buy when I need to repurchase this.
I’m really loving this mascara, Lashblast was my favourite drugstore mascara and Lash Bloom by Lashblast is living up to the high hopes I had. It’s only second favourite to my Benefit They’re Real Mascara and honestly I think it looks just about the same as that one.
Have you tried Lash Bloom? What are your thoughts? What’s your favourite drugstore mascara lately?
