When women ask me what my favorite mascara is, it may surprise them that my answer can be found at your local drugstore. I always tell them it's Cover Girl Lash Blast and then I include the following tip without hesitation;
When you’re looking for a mascara that will hold the curl you created, you want to look for one that is waterproof. If you don’t feel like it's giving you enough volume or length, your second or third coat can be another mascara you love for that. Just make sure your base coat is waterproof (and ideally Cover Girl Lash Blast) so that your curl is locked!
Now here is why Lash Blast is my favorite; This formula is strong but lightweight so it doesn’t clump up my lashes. The wand separates each lash in perfect sync and in the same direction so you don’t end up with any open areas. Then I can add any volumizing mascara and VOILA my lashes will look fluffy and last all night long!
However, you do have to be careful when removing your makeup as the waterproof mascara is obviously meant to endure water. The best way to remove it, is with an oil based eye makeup remover or just plain old baby oil on a cotton ball or soft tissue. Hold it over your lashes and let it sink in for a little before wiping so you aren’t rubbing your eye too long. Rinse and repeat for your next night out!
