Covergirl Lash Blast Luxe Mascara
So, you all know by now that my favorite mascara is Covergirl Lash Blast. I headed over to ULTA this weekend to pick up a couple of things including a tube of Lash Blast (original) and they were out of stock. But, I saw that there were a ton of Lash Blast “Luxe” in stock.
I’ve never heard of the Luxe formula, and I wasn’t sure whether to get it or not for a few reasons.
1. I was unaware of exactly how shimmery this mascara is; I didn’t want mascara with glitter in it.
2. I was unaware of how BLACK it is. I like my mascara to be the blackest black.
3. I wasn’t sure if the formula was exactly the same as the original lash blast. I wanted the same formula (I didn’t care for Lash Blast Length).
I decided to try it anyway, because I was desperate for a fresh tube and I didn’t feel like running all over town for it.
Covergirl Lash Blast Luxe is available in four shades: Black Platinum, Black Cabernet, Black Royale & Black Emerald. I chose Black Platinum; the darkest shade.
When I opened the tube, I wasn’t too happy with how black it is. Its more of a dark charcoal grey black with teeny tiny bits of shimmer. It’s not overly shimmery. It’s definitely not glittery. Once applied, it was super black. I was very happy that It didn’t look like I had charcoal colored lashes & I couldn’t tell that it was shimmery – only if I pressed my nose against my compact mirror, I could spot a few specks of shimmer. I was also very pleased to see that the formula is indeed the same as the original Lash Blast. I would definitely re-purchase this mascara!
