My thoughts on Covergirl Lash Blast Fusion

So the other day I went to my local ULTA and saw that Covergirl was having a sale on their line buy 2 get one free and I have been needed to get a new Lash Blast Volume cause my mascara that I have been using is drying out. So I figured this would be the best chance to try out Lash Blast Fusion.

The first day I used my regular Lash Blast an all time favortie of mine and I was VERY happy with it and remembered why I loved it so much before I went looking for new mascaras lol. So this morning I had to get up and get ready very early in the morning (4AM) and I figured what the heck why don't I try this new Lash Blast Fusion mascara. Well at first look it is just the same as the original but when you pull out the wand there is one MAJOR difference! The mascara which I purchased in black is GRAY! Yes GRAY! I love deep dark blackest black mascaras so I knew from then on that I wasn't going to be very happy with this mascara. Well after one swip of the wand there was little to NO difference in my fairly long lashes. So I kept going and going and going and there was nothing happening. It made them long separated but NO volume what so ever. Plus it did not make my lashes pop like they normally would with a regular black mascara. What I mean by that is since it is gray it makes the lashes look dull and lifeless. I could see this mascara being good for a day where you want a "natural" look.

With all this being said I am most likely going to be returning this mascara and getting a third Lash Blast Volume. I can not see myself grabbing for this. I like lengthing mascaras but not ones that don't make my lashes pop being deep black. This kind of makes your lashes blend into the background if you know what I mean.

I suggest trying this to see if you like it cause you just may. I can see a lot of regular Lash Blast user not liking this at all! It really gives you NO volume at all. So yeah try it out if you love it AWESOME if not then return it as I am. I know that if I wouldn't have gotten it and at least tried it I would have been curious about it until I did.

I hope this post helps you with any questions you may have on the Cover Girl Lash Blast Fusion.

Thanks for reading

I will add some pictures of the 2 mascaras so that you can see the difference when I am not at work.


  1. I own lash blast fusion in black and mine is definitely black! Maybe you just have a dud? I would try exchanging it, but in all honesty I don't think the formulas are that much different!

  2. That's curious about the gray color and not black. I have a Lashblast Fusion and mine is black. Marie may be right about getting a dud? I have to say, I have been enjoying mine. I still wouldn't say it's a fave. I haven't found my "soul mate" mascara yet. I'll let you know when I do! :)
