Third Time's the Charm: Part One

In which our heroine (that's me!) tries out various mascaras to find one that meets all of her needs.  

Ok, we've all seen the ads with Drew Barrymore flaunting her huge fat lashes on tv while hawking Cover Girl Lash Blast.

The tube echoes that fat volumtastic lash appeal.

But in practice?

Not blowing my skirt up, if you know what I mean.

It was not really a thick volume boosting formula, but a thin wet coat that made my lashes stick together and smudge on my lower eyelids.

So, Drew, I think much like Charlie's Angels 2, I'll pass on this offering.

I gave this mascara a chance. I really did. And I was disappointed. Went back to my DiorShow love.

agreed. i hate that i fall victim to the silliness of mass marketing. alas, i bought myself this lash blast and was sadly disappointed.
diorshow takes the cake, however if you have sensitive eyes (like i do) i do like Revlon? BareNaturals mascara...

I recently tried Max Factor's Volume Couture - and I'm in love! I don't know how you feel about mascaras - but I'll also tell you what I hate - Maybelline Great Lash, DiorShow, and Loreal Featherlash. If you try Max Factor's, let me know what you think!

like Marisol I too tried the lash blast and have returned to Dior - have yet to find one that comes even close

What is it about that big orange tube? It lured me in as well. I didn't like it either. I do like Neutrogena's Healthy Volume Mascara. Apparently lashes, like bread, are improved with olive oil :)
