As you all know, Lash Blast (now known as Lash Blast Volume) was the original Lash Blast, in the orange tube, this is lots of people's HG mascara, it was meant to give volume. Lash Blast Length, in the yellow tube came next, it was meant for length. I didn't even pick that one up because of the poor reviews. Now, Lash Blast Fusion, in the purple tube is the newest offering, and it's meant to give volume AND length. Sounds good right? Let me tell you about it.
Lash Blast Waterproof (in Black) on Left and Lash Blast Fusion (in Black) on Right
The brush on the Lash Blast Fusion is the rubber type that most mascaras have. In the picture above, you can see the two mascara brushes are very similar. I am not sure why but the Lash Blast waterproof is a lot more glossy (which I like), the Fusion isn't very black, more grey looking there. The Lash Blast brush is a touch fatter (wider). The little bristles look identical on each brush. The length of the bristles look similar too, the original Lash Blast seems have to have bristles. So what is different about this new Fusion mascara? Nothing really.

From the picture above, the Fusion looks like a bit more smoother application, but it might just be because my Lash Blast Volume is quite old so it gets clumpier. However, the regular Lash Blast is blacker. I should of compared this to both non-waterproof version, but this was all I had and I couldn't find Lash Blast Fusion in waterproof at the store (does it come in waterproof?). Do my lashes look any longer on the left? Nope. Does the Fusion give more volume? Nope.
I paid $9.99 for the Lash Blast Fusion at Walgreens. I was so excited about it, but was left disappointed as the two mascaras are so similar. Would I buy this again? If it was waterproof maybe, but I could go with either the Lash Blast or Lash Blast Fusion since I think they are the same thing, just a marketing ploy to get people to buy it, don't be fooled!
