This cult supermarket mascara just got a clean makeover

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this buildable lash offering

The product

When it comes to a mascara that you can rely on daily, you need something that’s natural but buildable – afterwork-appropriate lashes are a must in our opinion. Though a flake-free, smudge-proof option is always welcome, it’s more than just how the mascara wears throughout the day that makes a good mascara.

Unfortunately, there’s a wealth of mascara formulas using unrecognisable ingredients that leave much to be desired when it comes to keeping our bodies, as well as the planet, happy and healthy.

The same can not be said for COVERGIRL’s latest lash offering – COVERGIRL Lash Blast Clean Mascara.

Boasting a clean, vegan-friendly formula that’s free of parabens, sulfates, talc, and mineral oil, it’s a wand we can all feel good about using. Plus a welcome infusion of nourishing and conditioning argan and marula oils, this long-lasting volumiser defines lashes with a clump-free and smudge-proof promise that means you can rely on this pick to take you through the whole day.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this clean formula mascara.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about COVERGIRL Lash Blast Clean Mascara.

The buildable formula: Our members really liked how easy it was to layer this mascara. A few strokes would create a natural fluttery lash look, or they could build to a more volumised, statement lash.

The way it defines lashes: Reviewers really loved the clump-free formula that made lash definition and separation a breeze upon application, and also when layering the formula for more impact. 

The flake-free, smudge-proof formula: Those of our members who wear glasses and contact lenses loved the fact that they were able to comfortably wear the mascara throughout the day. They found they didn’t have to worry about the formula flaking off or smudging, resulting in a messy undereye situation or eye irritation. 

The verdict

“As someone who has been trying to reduce the number of chemicals in my makeup drawer, this mascara was a perfect fit for me. This mascara is long lasting and smudge free (even after a full day's work) and was easy to remove at the end of the day. I found a dab of micellar water on a makeup pad worked well. [It’s] easy to build upon [allowing] you to choose between a more natural application or big bold lashes, and the brush is great for separating each individual lash, creating long feathery lashes. Being a clean, vegan friendly formula, it didn't irritate my eyes and I didn't have any problems with flaking, so wearing contact lenses was fine.”

“While I wear makeup every day I'm wearing less than I used to. I want eyelash definition, length and volume but I'm not after anything super dramatic. This mascara definitely gave me good volume, definition and length, and it was great for everyday wear… The mascara was easy to apply, it stayed on all day with no smudging and – most importantly – it was easy to remove at night (I HATE stubborn mascaras!).”

“I am always skeptical of trying new mascara. I have been using the same brand for 10 years. Whenever I have ventured to try a new one, I've always been disappointed. Not with Covergirl Lash Blast Clean Mascara… I really loved the large brush as it allowed me to get right into the lash line and build up a really full and voluminous effect… [the mascara] did not smudge throughout the day and I found it wore really well, even when I was wearing my glasses for most of the day. My eyes were not irritated by this mascara and it did not feel cakey or flakey while on.”
