My Favorite Drugstore Mascara



Yay! I have finally found my favorite drugstore mascara and I wanted to share it with you guys.
I am sure many of you are familiar with it, it's Covergirl Lash Blast Volume, a mascara that claims to 'max out every lash, provides instant volume and fullness and not smudge'. 
So when I knew I was travelling to the US I had to ask Yessie to tell me the best drugstore mascaras she knows and she mentioned this one so I went straight to it.

When you have such sad and invisible lashes like mine it's hard to achieve any good make up look as I am missing the eyelashes part and I don't really like to wear falsies so well, wondering how this mascara would work I decided to give it a try the next day I bought it.

And woah! First of all, the wand... I knew something good was coming. The formula is great, not too watery not too dry, good enough to build invisible lashes, separate them and not let them go straight again. When I applied the first layer I worked mainly in the roots, let it dry a bit so it they can get a good hold. Second layer was all about getting a full lash effect.
See the difference? I can't believe this mascara! I think it's even better than Benefit They're real and besides, it's easy to remove.

Have you heard about this mascara? If so, did you get similar results? 
What's your favorite drugstore mascara?

Sí! Finalmente encontré mi mascara drugstore favorita y la quería compartir con ustedes.
Quizás algunas ya la conozcan, es Covergirl Lash Blast Volume y promete "maximizar cada pestaña, proveer volumen instantáneo y no correrse ".
Ni bien supe que viajaba le pregunté a Yessie que máscara era buena y barata y me dijo que esta así que no dudé en comprarla rapidísimo.

Y wow! Primero que todo, la brocha... sabía que algo buena venía. La formula es ideal, no muy aguada ni seca, ideal para armar las pestañas, separarlas y no dejarlas caer nuevamente.
Cuando apliqué la primer capa trabajé casi únicamente en las raíces, dejé secar unos segundos para que tengan una buena base. La segunda capa fue dar volumen.
Ven la diferencia? No lo puedo creer! Creo que es mucho mejor que Benefit - They're real y aparte, mucho más fácil de remover.

Escucharon de esta máscara?
Cuál es su máscara de farmacia favorita?

  11. LOVE this mascara. Probably my all time if I had to pick. I wasn't a big fan of the They're Real...it was soooo hard to remove. Lash Blast is amazing. I use the waterproof for brides!

  19. whatever you do don't waste your money on the lash blast length! I made the mistake of buying that over the original lash blast and I'm about to throw it out! I havent ever tried this one though, the Rimmel Lash Accelerator is an awesome mascara! It's my fav from the drugstore.

  22. Yo uso la False Lash Effect de Max Factor, el cepillo es igual a el de Cover Girl y también el resultado!! Tengo pestañas largas pero muy finitas y para mi es ideal<3 y lo mas importante! también se retira fícil y no me hace picar ni arder los ojos...también vi una de la marca Rimmel que es idéntica a la Lash Blast,envase naranja,mismo cepillo,precio accesible..es una opción para las niñas Argentinas ( la vi en pigmentoLa Plata)Besos !!!

  38. So glad you liked my recommendation! I'll have to send you the Jordana mascara:) thanks for the mention!

  39. Sad and invisible are not two words I would use to describe your lashes! I think this is a great everyday mascara though I still prefer Benefit They're Real. I'm currently rotating this one and Max Factor Masterpiece Max.
