Covergirl Lashblast Fusion mascara is the best mascara I've ever used. It beats any designer mascara I have tried. This mascara is the holy grail of mascaras! Covergirl knocked it out of the park with this one. It doesn't smudge, flake or clump. It gives me nice fuller, thicker and longer looking lashes at an unbelievably inexpensive price. This has been my go to mascara for years now. I have no plans of ever switching or using another mascara. I use the waterproof formula and do not have a hard time removing it with a normal make up remover wipe.
