Makeup Review: Cover Girl LashBlast Fusion Mascara

Cover Girl’s LashBlast mascara line has been around for a few years. They had LashBlast Volume (which I didn’t like very much), and then LashBlast Length.

The Final Verdict

Although I liked Cover Girl LashBlast Fusion, I didn’t think it fulfilled all of it’s promises. While it added volume to my lashes, it didn’t lengthen them. Still, it didn’t clump up, was easy to apply and looked great. For these reasons, I give Cover Girl LashBlast Fusion a…
