Packaging: This mascara is a beast. Its huge. Its the same size as a regular LashBlast Mascara
(LashBlast 24hr on top-LashBlast Volume underneath)
(Lashblast 24hr compared to CG Natureluxe mascara)
I dont mind it soo much, however, the handle (at least for me) isnt too user friendly. But, it gets the job done. I love the black and orange lettering!
Formula: CG definitely got the formula right with this one. Its different from the other mascaras CG has. This one holds a curl very well, and the color I got (black) is a super very dark black. Its not runny and its not too thick. I was expecting my eyelashes to be a little hard feeling since this is a long wear mascara, but they weren't! They definitely felt like they had mascara on, but it didn't leave me with a hard and crispy feeling. It even stayed on through a few tears. I forgot after a while that I was wearing mascara. There was no flaking, no clumping, no nothing. It was actually quite surprising. And take a look at this beast of a brush.
I love the brush. It separates, adds length and volume, and gets in there. I did have to wipe off the tip of the brush (I hate that shmutz at the end..), but other then that..its great.
Performance: I didnt take any before/after pictures, but take my word one this one..It did pretty darn well. I put this on at about 9am and took it off at around 11p. Towards the end the curl started to deflate a bit, but my eyelashes did look just as good as when I put it on. Taking it off was a bit of a pain. I use Neutragena makeup removing wipes, and I had to hold the wipe on my eyes for about 30sec to get it off, without harming my eyelashes.
Overall: A great addtion to the Covergirl mascara family. It volumizes & lengthens, without any clumping or flaking issues. Its tad bit difficult to remove, but it lasts for hours and keeps your eyes looking gorgeous. Its a win!
5/5-bought it myself.
