Nothing really beats CoverGirl. I keep trying other things, but I always come home to CG. My three favorite mascaras, EVER. are LashBlast, DiorShow, and Clump Crusher, and two of those are CG. I use DiorShow for things like weddings, where I need to be just a little bit glam but not cry my mascara off; I use Clump Crusher for every day wear, and I use LashBlast every time I need a boost of confidence and don't want to break out the really expensive stuff, or I'm traveling, or for not-fancy evening wear. I totally love it...I really do. For all that I wear Clump Crusher more often, it's not like I get many more clumps with LashBlast, and I really love it more. It's my go-to mascara.
