I'm a BzzAgent, and they sent me CoverGirl LashBlastFusion Mascara to try out and review.
The package always include a pamphlet from BzzAgent. Drew Barrymore being the CoverGirl model can impress anyone to try the product. She's just so gorgeous or at least for me!... hehe~
Product Review: CoverGirl LashBlastFusion Mascara in #860 Very Black

Where can you purchase this: drugstores, grocery stores, mass retailers, and online
Price: $8.99 (I got mine free to try)

Made in USA.

Information on the back: Use LashBlastFusion to get a blast of volume PLUS incredible length! It's the perfect fusion of LashBlast's super-volumizing brush and a buildable fiber-stretch lengthening formula that work together for dense, long-looking lashes! Discard bottle cap. Replace with brush and close cap completely before first use. Safeguard Purity: always handle/apply in a careful, sanitary manner. Don't share or add anything to mascara. Treat applicator in a hygienic manner, don't reuse in a new case. Don't use if change in odor or appearance occurs. Cap tightly. Warning: Always use in a sanitary manner, do not share; do not dilute; never use if yor eye is irritated, infected, or scratched. In extreme cases, eye infections can lead to blindness. consult an eye doctor immediately in case of injury.

Ingredients:

My thoughts: To be honest when I first received this, I wasn't expecting much since it's not waterproof. Non-waterproof mascaras tend to weigh my Asian lashes down. I'll go into this later... hehe~ So when I received this, the first thing I did is look at the wand.
How cute is the wand!... lol~ I fell in love with the color, purple, and yes I'm that simple. Little things make me happy... wheee~ Then I looked at the wand and realized how thick it is. I'm so use to thin wands that I got scared. There's a pro and con with using thick wands or at least for me. I noticed since it's thick, it's very easy to apply to my lashes. Since it's so thick, I noticed mascara marks on my eyelids and the bottom of my eyes... lol~ It might just be me and needing some practice. :X I also noticed the thickness of the wand makes it harder to get to close to the lashes close to the eye.

The next thing I looked at is how it's suppose to give you volume and length. I need both of that!... lol~
I definitely noticed length.
It also gave me volume. I was really happy!... wheee~ :)

Now going back to non-waterproof mascara... I was actually pretty impressed it didn't weigh my lashes down. It might be because the mascara didn't get close to the lashes next to the eyes. I'm not too sure, but I would imagine the waterproof one would be amazing if they had one. I tried one and two coats, and they both didn't weigh my lashes down. I did noticed with two coats my lashes got bunched together though. :/

Pros:
* CoverGirl; mascaras experiences are good.
* Cute colored wand.
* Thick wand; quick to apply.
* Gives volume and length.
* Doesn't weigh lashes down.
* Easy to take off since it's not waterproof.

Cons:
* CoverGirl; most of their products are not good.
* Not waterproof.
* Thick wand; touches skin.

Would I buy this again: Yes.

Ulta Hand Cream in Cranberry

I bought this long time ago. I found the post on this haul and cannot believe I bought this in January 2009!... eek~ :X Anyone who knows me well knows I have hand cream/lotion everywhere. Like a lot of people carry lip balms, I carry hand lotions... lol~ This lotion was kept in my car and finally finished it. When it comes to Ulta products, I'm not the most keen on it. I never found Ulta products that good but this hand lotion is pretty decent. It's very moisturizing even for my dry winter skin!

Would I buy this again: Yes.

Thanks for the review! I'm glad it worked out for you. I liked Lashblast but I don't think I'm gonna try these new ones out. I'm kinda wanting to try more Maybelline mascaras out...

I really want to try this mascara. CG mascaras are pretty decent. I just don't like their eye shadows, they are not pigmented at all!

You're lucky to have been able to try this mascara! I'm dying to try it as I'm a big fan of the original LashBlast, but I'm waiting for a sale to get my hands on it (=

with the heat down here, I can never go for non-waterproof, but you're right, the length is obvious on photos!

I feel the same about waterproof mascara too, I feel insecure when I wear non-waterproof mascara. Thanks for the great review, it looks really great on you :)

Nic Nic said...

looks like a nice mascara - i can def see lengthening there! Drew does look gorgeous there!

Kalmo said...

Thanks for the review Alyssa, this product looks great. Your lashes look super long but maybe they always are? haha I can't remember, they look nice any how. hehe That hand lotion is really nice, thanks for letting me use a couple of times. Smells great too.

Diane said...

I just bought this mascara a week of 2 ago and I'm really loving it also. I actually have never liked any of the LashBlast mascaras and at the time I didn't know why I took the chance with this one, but it turned out great. Great review!

PS yeah it leaves marks on my lids too. =(

i was thinking of getting this one, but got discouraged when i found out it's not waterproof. i like waterproof too. for me, i like it because i'm a crybaby and i never know when i'm going to cry. hahaha... so yeah, waterproof comes in handy. at least i won't end up looking like a raccoon after crying. LOL.

after reading your review, i feel a little more at ease about buying and trying this product. it has promise. :D especially after seeing how amazing your lashes look. i love how long and fanned out they look. it's like you have doll-like lashes. i'm going to tell my fellow makeup loving friend, letty, about this too. lol. :D

thank you so much for the review. also for your compliment about my recent pic. :D that's sweet of you to tell me i look good with less makeup. it gave me a confidence boost. :D i haven't been wearing much of it the past few weeks. maybe because it's summer and my face feels better with less makeup. or maybe i'm just lazy. hehehe...

just like most of your friends, a lot of my friends and relatives my age are married with kids too. they can't go anywhere without them too. i'm glad i met my work buddies. they're a lot younger, but always game for girls' night out. :D in case you come to town, you are invited. they will like you. :D

i heard a lot of good things about NYC bronzers too. especially the one called sunny. that shade looks like it compliments a lot of skintones. i should buy it next time. i always pass it whenever i see it. i need to get it already. plus, the price is reasonable. it should be about less than $3. :D

i wanted to get hard candy meteor glitter eyeshadow after work, but we ended up not going to walmart. bummer. oh, well. i have all week to go. hehe... now i want intergalactic too. i still want the purple one as well since i did not get its MAC dupe a few months back. lol.

oh yeah, i still have yet to message you on facebook and email you. i'm sorry it's taking me a while to get to everything. i will soon. promise. :) take care and enjoy your sunday. :D

i love the packaging!! I would probably get it just cuz of the colour.. lol.. I've heard so much about Lash Blast that its always at the back of my mind.. but I don't use mascara enough to order it online and ship it all the way over here.. =X
