Have you tried something new recently? I have. As you may remember, last month I attended the P&G “Have You Tried This Yet” media event right here in South Beach! I had a great time, and it was fun learning about the new P&G products. I was thrilled to be accepted to participate in the CleverGirls Collective “Try Something New” campaign with P&G and Kroger as a follow up to this event, because I did indeed try a new product, and I am now a COVERGIRL convert!! Allow me to explain…

I am what you may call an eye-makeup junkie, and I love makeup and the look of a “finished” eye. I have two gigantic pallets of  name-brand eyeshadow purchased at a large and well known makeup store, as well as various other brands of eyeshadow stuffed into my bathroom drawer. Seriously, way more than I can ever use. And let’s not even talk about eyeliners, brushes, eye primers, etc. I have a lot of makeup.

But mascara? I’ve always had issues finding the right one for me. Usually they are too heavy, or too clumpy, or make my eyes itch, or I end up getting an infection because I can’t get it to wash off properly, even with makeup remover! Not to mention they have all been so expensive since I tend to buy the big name brands at the department store. What a waste that was!

The result is that I haven’t worn mascara in years! What’s a makeup lover to do?!

When I attended the P&G event here in South Beach, I was curious about their Lash Blast Fusion mascara. I haven’t worn any COVERGIRL makeup probably since I was in high school, so I was more than willing to try something new. After all, it couldn’t hurt. Plus, one of my favorite makeup artists was working the event that night, and I trusted her to make me look fabulous!

I knew I had a winner with COVERGIRL’s Lash Blast Fusion even before I looked in the mirror. After the makeup artist finished applying the mascara, it felt so incredibly light on my eyelashes that I had to ask her if she’d actually completed the application. After checking myself out, I couldn’t believe the difference. My lashes looked even longer (something I didn’t realize could be possible – I have long lashes already) and OMG – they were not clumpy or heavy looking!!!! I was in love!

I’m recommending COVERGIRL’s Lash Blast Fusion to everyone I know, now — and I’m so thankful that I didn’t give up on mascara and decided to try something new! P&G and COVERGIRL — you rock!

  1. that’s great. i’ve also had issues finding a mascara that i like. i’ve been using mac’s plushlash but i’ve noticed my eyes starting to get itchy when i wear it, and i’ve been shying away from using it. i tried the regular lash blast & really wasn’t too impressed w/ it, but maybe i’ll give this a try at your recommendation!
