Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara in Very Black
Cover Girl Lash Blast departs from the traditional bristle brush standard and uses a spiky rubber bristled brush instead. As a result, the feel of the application is much smoother and softer than a traditional bristle brush.
The formula is thicker and less drying than the Colossal Volume. While the length and volume the mascara produces is amazing, it doesn't yield as good of separation as the Colossal Volume. Notice in the photo above how my lashes tend to stick together a little bit more than in the photo of the Colossal Volume Mascara. I generally don't care about separation as long as my lashes are lengthened and volumized but this might be an important point for some of you ladies.
Lash Blast comes in a fat orange tube and the handle is enormous. Again, a lot of people might prefer a more dainty handle but I didn't mind it at all. It retails for around $7.50 but you can likely get a lower price through drugstore deals.
WINNER: Its a TIE!! Really, I could not pick between the two because they were both fantastic! So how to decide between the two when you are at the drugstore?? Pick the Maybelline Colossal Volume (in the photo above it is on the left) if you want super long lashes that are well separated. Pick the Cover Girl Lash Blast (in the photo above it is on the right) if you want more volume to go along with your very long lashes and like a rubber bristle brush.
