Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers!!
Today I have a mascara review to share with you. It is the Cover Girl Full Lash Bloom mascara. Disclaimer: I received this free from Bzzagent to try and provide my honest opinion, this post is not sponsored.
Let's get started...
Here's a little company description,
Cover Girl Full Lash Bloom Mascara by Lash Blast - Soft, full lashes that are never stiff or brittle. New petal shaped brush and soft, mousse formula, with natural beeswax, brings out every lash. Ophthalmologically tested and suitable for contact lens wearers.
I have decent length lashes, but they are stick straight. Every time I curl my lashes and put on mascara, my lashes fall right down and becomes stick straight again. It usually takes me a long time to use mascara and achieve the look I want.
It comes with a beautiful bright fushia pink tube, the shape of the tube is same as the other 3 mascara from the lash blast line. It has little flowers printed on the tube. The packaging is very girly and it makes me happy.
I love that Cover Girl separates the actually mascara from the wand in its store packaging. I can see clearly what the wand bristles look like and feel the bristles without getting mascara on my hand. The bristles are made of rubber and are very flexible. I like that the wand is not too thick, this give me better control when I'm using the mascara close to my lash line.
First time using this mascara, the product is quite wet. But from my previous experience with the lash blast fusion mascara, this formula gets better with use. I find that the formula in this mascara is quite different from the lash blast fusion, this one has a more airy, not as dry consistency.
This mascara is so easy to apply with the perfect sized wand, I can apply it close to the root of my lashes without getting mascara on my lids. My lashes became visible with one coat. With two coats it achieve the soft, voluminous , natural looking lashes. I also tried the third coat, it gives more of night time looking lashes. I would probably stay with 1~2 coats though because I like more of the natural look. Another great thing about the Full Lash Bloom is that even with multiple coats, my lashes never look stiffed, and they don't feel stiff when I touch it. There were no clumps and definitely buildable.

The one I tried is not a waterproof mascara. However, it lasted more than 9 hours on my lashes, from school to work without any rain, tears. Something I noticed is that there were no flakey fall outs on my lids, around my eyes nor in my eyes. No smudging and no transfer.
I would give this product a....
I gave it a 5/5 because even though it didn't hold my curl after applying the mascara. The product didn't claim to hold curls, plus it does not have a waterproof formula. Even most of the high end mascaras doesn't hold them. I really have nothing bad to say about this mascara, I think it's better than some of the high end mascara I tried. Lash blast is really one of my favorite mascara lines. Thank you Cover Girl and Bzzagent for the wonderful mascara.
