A quick introduction! My name's Shona and I blog over on my blog freshbeautyxox. I love Clare's blog so its great to be guest blogging for her! I hope you enjoy the review.


This is a mascara that I've had for a while now and I've been deciding on my opinion of it for a little while as well. 

This is the 24hr Version of the Covergirl Lashblast Mascara, I take it this means that it will supposedly last 24hr's. This is a pretty hefty claim so I was intrigued to try it, although I don't need a mascara to last that long.

The brush is rubber with short fibres. It catches all the lashes.

2 coats (sorry for the annoying hair!)

This mascara adds length but mainly adds volume to my lashes. I didn't curl my lashes in this picture so its not looking its best but you get the idea. One coat adds length and a bit of volume and then adding another coat up's the volume a lot. 

This did clump a little bit on the second coat but I usually go for one coat of mascara and with just one coat I didn't find it to clump at all.. Unfortunately though after about 3/4 of the day it started to flake and smudge. This was a bit of a disappointment especially when it claims to last 24Hrs. 

Overall I think I will continue to use this mascara but only one coat. I think using two coats, which I don't usually do, made it smudge more. I do like this mascara so I would recommend it. Although I don't think its good enough to pay all the shipping costs etc if you find somewhere to buy it online in the UK. I'd recommend trying out the MUA Every Lash Mascara and Maybelline's Mascaras.

Thanks for reading,
