Rated 4.15 out of 5 stars
When I saw the commercial for this mascara I knew I had to try it. I have blonde, short lashes & can't afford to lose any! When I use clean formulas, that happens less. This mascara (pitch black not waterproof) gave great pigment, separation, & volume. In my photo I'm wearing black eyeliner & no primer. I applied 3 coats. This lasted all day & even after a nap did not flake or run. This will be a staple in my makeup bag for sure. I wear contacts & had no probs.
This is my first time using drugstore mascara in almost 20 years. I was skeptical, but now I'm impressed -EXCEPT for one major factor. The reason I purchased was because of the clean ingredient list; I want to support that effort.
Formula: goes on so smooth, no clumping, beautiful separation, gives a nice "omph" to my lashes, and doesn't have a weird smell. The very black is very black. It dries fairly quickly. Has a similar look and feel to Glossier's Lash Slick, but gives more volume!
Wear: I do not typically experience racoon eye with any mascara for the record. Only a little flaking after 12+ hours of wear.
Removal: comes off easily with warm water and my usual face cleanser!
The not so great...the wand: The bristles are short, plastic bristles that give an even, smooth, clump-less coating. But the brush itself is FAT. Too fat to get into the corners to touch up tiny lashes. The handle of the wand is so fat and unwieldly that it's hard to feel that I'm in control of application. It gives an overwhelming sensation of using a fat toddler crayon to put on mascara.
If they will slim the brush and handle I will make this a staple.

I bought this recently and I'm absolutely addicted to it

CoverGirl has a lot to cover with this mascara since it's vegan and cruelty-free while also being expected to stand-up with other products in today's bold lash marketplace. It did not quite hold up for my needs in terms of staying flake-free all day. I won't purchase this again.

my number 1 thing i HATE with mascara is clumping & this one lengthens & darkens... & it looks so natural bc it doesn't clump 😩😩😩

it does not glue, but separates the eyelashes. if you apply a little, then the eyelashes look natural. if applied several times, the eyelashes will become fluffy and voluminous. It is not waterproof, easily washed off with water, but does not flow during the day. it does not crumble, has a bright color. it is used for a long time, does not dry out.

I needed a good non-waterproof mascara that wouldn't run after I had Lasik surgery. I found this and love it! It stays on until you take it off, with just warm water. And the black is truly dark black. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is the blunt tip in the brush. It makes it difficult to get to the smaller and lower lashes without getting mascara all over my eyelids and under eyes as well.

I love this mascara! Gives so much volume in your lashes! No clumps at all!! Gives a lot of length and flake free! Long lasting! Makes my eye lashes look so long!

It's very good volumizing, clump-free, it makes my lashes very long, flake-free, it's very easy to remove, I use this mascara every day and it's great.

It's really lengthening and it makes my lashes look fake in the best way like it's so pretty which suprise me because of its price and brand. I usually just get the ones the everyone wears and this time i just grabbed it hoping it would be good to try and surprisingly it's my favorite. it's so beasy to take off and buildable.

I love this mascara. I have been looking for a clean drugstore mascara that actually gives length & volume. I love it more than the Lash Paradise I had been using for years (reluctantly -- because it was't clean but it worked so well.)

This mascara made my lashes clump together and splattered under eyes and was not buildable in my experience but it was very easy to remove so definitely points for that.

I have been looking for a mascara like this for years. Perfect
Not what it claims to be from Merrill wi
I bought it a month I did not like it at all. It was clumpy and seemed to be dried out and when it came time to remove I had a very had time.

I was excited to try this clean mascara... but this mascara is not clean, very messy to apply , leaves many clumps behind, flakes off and impossible to remove (waterproof) used eye-makeup wipes and baby oil. I"ll go back to Cover Girl Clump Crusher

The CoverGirl Lash Blast Clean delivers such a good lengthening formula that works really well. It's buildable, separates your lashes great and I love that mine came with an eyeliner in the pack too

This is my favorite mascara I've gotten since it does not ever clump. The waterproof hydro fudge one was clumpy and hard to get off, but this one; the clean version, is super easy to get off. I've gotten this mascara more than 5 times and it takes a long time to run out.

Worst mascara I have tried. The black-brown is too far into black. The brush is what makes it awful. It clumps my lashes into 3 disturbing-looking sections. I comb through but it is hopeless, they look bad. Then it flakes off after just a few hours. Used it 5 times and problems each use. I rarely review products and don't like being so negative, but this really didn't work for me. I bought it on a trip because it is vegan and I have liked CG mascara in the past.

I have used the brown lash blast volume for a long while. I loved the true brown color. THEY CHANGED THE COLOR to a black -brown. Now I need to find a new mascara

This is my favorite mascara EVER! The nourishing ingredients leave my lashes not damaged after a full day wear and also apply like a dream. There are little-no clumps and is very buildable and is water resistant and can remove easily with micellar water! Overall, my favorite drugstore mascara.

I do not like this mascara at all. First off, it smells like gasoline. Secondly, it is impossible to apply! The wand was not working at all. Lastly and most importantly, it was impossible to take off. I used every makeup removing product under the sun to take this mascara off and it still did not come off! It gave me an allergic reaction and made my eye lids and under-eyes swell up. Do not get this mascara!!!

This has been my favorite mascara since MIDDLE school (I'm a college graduate). The formula never fails. I've always been somebody who likes putting on a lot of mascara. Not clumpy, but just putting on lots of layers to make them look bigger/longer. I've never worn fake eyelashes, but I've had so many girls ask me if I'm wearing them, and every single time has been when I have this mascara on. I've tried other ones here and there just for fun, but they're so bad in comparison that I just end up washing it off and coming back to this green (clump crusher) lash blast. If they stopped making it, I wouldn't know what to do! I'd probably end up trying eyelash implants.

I love this eyeliner because it doesn't feel clumpy or heavy on my eyelashes and it feels clean! It doesn't have any weird smell to it or make my eyes water like others brands do! The price of this you cannot beat either! 10/10 highly recommend!

I absolutely love this mascara! I have been wearing it for 15 hours in this photo with only one coat. It works great for layering for a more dramatic effect, too!

This mascara is one of my favorites! It very lengthening. I would recommend getting another mascara for volumizing. This is so affordable, clump free, and can be easily removed.

The product had a few tiny clumps but, it's easy to use. It's non-irritating to sensitive skin even if you were to mess up your lash stroke. The product builds well when it comes to layers which makes it Volumizing on your lashes. The length changes but by bit but it does make your lashes bolder and stand out more.
