Despite what most reviews of this product indicate this is a GREAT MASCARA. First off, yes it is a large brush so yes you will likely get some mascara on you eyelid while you're applying it. NO BIGGIE, simply rub some ponds cold cream onto a q tip and swipe the mascara off your eyelid, very simple. Regardless of what kind of mascara or brush I use I always get some on my eyelid so that step is inevitable for me. Secondly, this product does not clump when used properly! When it is new there is too much mascara on the want so SCRAPE some off on the edge of the tube! THEN apply starting at the base with a zig zag motion moving up the eyelashes. IF, and I do mean IF it does clump just run a clean spooly brush though it or eyelash comb and it looks great! Thirdly, This product does not flake easily! I use this everyday and it only flakes if I sleep in it! and I sleep face-down! And yes is it does take a while to remove but it is not impossible! I wonder what kind of makeup remover some reviewers have been using! I use Ponds Cold cream and rub it in for a min or so and then rub gently with a tissue and it comes off. I LOVE THIS MASCARA, ITS GREAT. I reccomend curling lashes before applying this. I'll admit I don't have short eyelashes but people notice my eyelashes ALL the time and comment on them, I've even been accused of wearing fake individual eyelashes! Also, this waterproof formula actually helps HOLD the CURL! I have also tried the non-waterproof version and I do not like it, it does flake rather badly and doesn't hold curl at all. Overall This is a GREAT MASCARA, dont let people who dont know how to apply mascara, or remove it for that matter, convince you otherwise, Its excellent!

I decided to try this only because the kind I've used for years (CG Marathon) was no longer available in stores and a friend of mine recommended this. As others have said, the big brush is bulky to hold and difficult to maneuver in the corners. I have also had difficulty getting the mascara to actually transfer to my lower lashes without ending up with mascara on my skin. Yes, in theory the excess can be removed with a Q-tip if I do it right away but even that does not always work completely so then there are smudges. On the plus side, it does stay put and I have not noticed flaking. I've been able to remove it fairly well with Almay oil-free eye makeup remover pads. Nevertheless I intend to see if I can return this mascara to the store once I've received my order for the Marathon mascara from this site!

    All I use is waterproof mascara and this one is pretty good. I just use baby oil on a piece of toilet paper folded in the morning and gently wipe off, adding more if I need it. This mascara lasts all day and night.

      Comments about CoverGirl LashBlast Waterproof Volume Mascara, Black 830, 1 ea:

      From what I had read, I was prepared that the brush might be awkward to use and difficult to hold, but I don't find it to be. (I don't know what people are talking about.) I actually really like the compactness of the bristles. It goes on smoothly and evenly, and I seem to get less on my face and lids than with some other brushes.

      I tried this in both the Waterproof and non-Waterprrof formulas. They're both pretty good, but prefer the Waterproof version. For one thing, it's amazingly long-lasting! If I don't clean it off at night, it will last for a few days. I'm not exagerating... a few days!
      It's also quite smudge-resistant.

      I'm able to get a nice "feathery" look that's mid-way between natural and dramatic. I think that you could probably get the "big, bold" effect they advertise by using several coats, but I never use more than two. Over-all, a good mascara, although I'm not sure if it's any better than CG's "Professional" mascara, which is much cheaper. Also, I wish the tube weren't quite so ugly!

      Comments about CoverGirl LashBlast Waterproof Volume Mascara, Black 830, 1 ea:

      I use this product everyday and it does as advertised. I personally love the large brush, handle, and container. If one puts this on CORRECTLY, there are no problems. I have long and full eyelashes so my lashes look great with this. I have no problems applying this to my bottom lashes either - just take your time! The only problem I had was that it was a little difficult to take off, but I found that Neutrogena Makeup remover or Avon's makeup remover worked really well to remove this. I don't get the raccoon eyes unless I end up sleeping with it on. It does not stay on your skin for days if you have the habit of washing your face everyday. Regardless, this is the best drugstore mascara I have ever tried.

        I hardly ever use mascara because it irritates my eyes. Since this is waterproof, it doesn't bother me. Looks pretty good on my sparse eyelashes.

        I use this product on a daily basis, although I think huge fun lashes are a daily "thing". This product is great because you get full super long lashes. Only drawback is that they do clump a bit, making it hard to remove at night. But with lashes all day looking great, its so worth it. Also, watch getting it on your lids, it can smear on your lids too, but as long as you apply it slowly and take your time you are good to go! I highly recommend after trying many MANY price points in the mascara brands out there.

          This is the best mascara I have ever used. The brush can be a little intimidating at first but after the first couple applications, it's like an old friend. I had no problem removing it when I was ready for it to come off. The only complaint I have is it takes a little longer to dry when you apply it so don't be too quick to blink but other than that, I am in love with this product.

            Comments about CoverGirl LashBlast Waterproof Volume Mascara, Black 830, 1 ea:

            I like innovative new concepts but this one is just not for practical use. The formula is good but it's the brush that sucks. The wand is huge making it difficult to use, it takes great technique not to get mascara all over you lid the first few times. The wand is very wide but the actual bristles themselves are kind of short and plastic. If you like to use it to curl your lashes backwards instead of using an eyelash curler you can forget about it. The bristles do not taper off at the ends like most mascaras do so you can also forget about using it on the inner eyelashes or your bottom lashes where lashes are naturally shorter. It' also very difficult to remove. Just regular soap and water (doesn't matter what soap you use) will not work! Must spend money on a GOOD eye makeup remover formula. Bottom line, if you have short lashes, or if you have or want curly lashes then THIS MASCARA IS NOT FOR YOU!
