    Nothing!!! It is my HG Mascara… so glad I found it 😉

    I would make the tip of the brush differently so there’s not a lump of mascara when I take the brush off the tube.

  3. Michaela

    I would make the entire brush less thick…but keep the bristles the same length.

  4. I would make it not flake off so easily.. I love what it does to my lashes but then I find black flecks all over my cheeks once it dries!

  5. Christine

    I’m in love with Lash Blast. I wouldn’t change anything about it.

  6. Make it less flakey! I LOVE this stuff, other thank the flakes its PERFECT. I do not enjoy having to carry around a brush to brush away all the flakes that fall off because of it :[

  7. Randi

    Less flaky and better lengthening properties, for sho.

  8. Tattoo Girl

    I love this stuff! It is my HG! The one thing I would change would be the smell. It is strong, especially strong when you open a new tube.

  9. electrik love

    the formula makes my eyes sting.

  10. Kornesican

    I wish it would be more thickening but keep everything else the same

  11. Michelle

    I think the brush is too fat — I wish it had more lengthening to it, but it does a great job for volume.

  12. The formula seems to work very well when I use the mascara fan brush. It is the brush that I canot get to work for me. I cannot get my inner lashes or my very outer lashes…only the ones right in the center. The wand is just far too large. I would make it smaller.

    Love the mascara itself, but hate the freaking brush, I still catch the skin after a few month..!

  14. vane

    omg !:(
    i would change the ingredients!
    when i bought it, i obviously wore it haha, and OMG it made the roots of my eyelashes it, and i would scratch and like two or three eyelashes would fall oout :(!

    im lash-less now.

    thanks lash blast.

  15. Ruth

    SMALLER BRUSH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Caroline

    A smaller brush and more lengthening.

  17. Sarah

    love the mascara but caz i have the waterproof one its is extremely hard to get it off. thats what i would change. otherwise the best mascara ever. whenever i wear it ppl think i have falsies on.

  18. Cassykins

    Nothing. This is the one and only CG item that doesn’t make my eyes sting, so no changing it on me!! I also don’t have the flaking problem nor do I find the brush to be too big. I also don’t do my lower lashes, though, so I can see how it might be a problem for those that do.

  19. I’d have CG stop all animal testing.
    Makeup can’t mask an ugly heart.

    I agree about the smaller brush… I really like LashExact but I can’t wait to try the LashBlast length that comes out in Sept! But LashExact is my HG.. I ALWAYS go back to it!

  21. Ju

    I agree about the smaller brush… [2]

  22. liana

    love the formula but would make the end of the brush smaller to get the smaller lashes too!

  23. Bren

    Smaller brush
    Make it last longer 😉
    Ditch the wide packaging

    Lose the flakiness, add more lengthening, smaller brush, and thinner tube/handle for a better grip. This was a so-so to me. I actually switched to it when my HG Maybelline Lash Stylist got discontinued. When I didn’t LOVE it, I went on a rampage and finally found my HG and bought 5 tubes. Does Mascara expire if its sealed and all?
