Review: CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion mascara

I am definitely the type of person who could be described as a "girly girl". I wear heels almost everytime I go outside, have a paralyzing fear of dirt, and I love frilly things. Oh, and I love makeup! I don't wear a lot of it at any time, but I'm rarely found without at least some makeup on. Even if it's just some mineral makeup and a bit of mascara, I don't feel fully dressed until my makeup is on!

Lately I've been in search of the perfect mascara. Until recently, my top runners were, of course, the most expensive mascaras from the makeup store, which doesn't work with my budget. So I was excited to get to be a part of a new BzzAgent campaign to test new CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion mascara.

From the CoverGirl website: 
Experience COVERGIRL's first ever volume + length mascara!

The fiberstretch formula and oversized brush make every little lash bigger, fuller, longer -looking and more dramatic.*
 * vs. bare lashes
My first reaction when I opened the package was "what a weird brush!" It's hard to see on the picture above, but the brush is fairly thick, with really, really short bristles.  But it works, and works well! With one coat of mascara, my lashes looked a lot longer. I thought that it took a couple of coats to get my lashes to look fuller, but that's easy enough to do.  I didn't have any problem with clumping, even when I was putting on multiple coats.  I've been wearing the mascara for weeks now and have never had a single problem with smudging or flaking under my eyes.

So now I have a new favorite mascara! If you're looking for a great mascara that won't break the bank, definitely check this one out!
