Drugstore Delight: Cover Girl Lash Blast Active Mascara

Cover Girl Lash Blast Active Mascara

Athleisure beauty is a growing category as more people look for high-performance products that allow them to sweat and look good at the same time. Personally, I avoid makeup during my workouts because I don't want to clog pores and trigger breakouts, but if I'm going to a barre class right after work I'll leave my brow makeup and mascara on. For the latter, I've been hooked on the new Cover Girl Lash Blast Active Mascara ($9.99 at London Drugs) lately, which supposedly stays put without smudging or flaking for up to 24 hours, no matter how much of a sweat you work up.

Well, Lash Blast Active certainly lives up to its claims—it's everything I want in a mascara at a wallet-friendly price. The polymer brush separates and lengthens lashes without clumping. The formula stays put and holds a curl for all-day wear. I'm seriously impressed with how well it holds up against my oily eyelids, and even when sweat drips into my eyes during barre it doesn't budge. All that, yet it comes off easily with micellar water at the end of the day.

The "Active" moniker is more of a gimmick than anything else. This is a solid drugstore mascara option whether you're a workout warrior or a couch potato who hates under-eye smudges, and it's become my new Holy Grail. Cover Girl, please don't ever stop making this.
