Quickie Review: CoverGirl Bombshell

Welcome to my new series of quickie reviews! A place where I can do quick-first-impression of drugstore or high end products that I pick up in my travels! I plan on doing a combination of blog posts and videos on my YouTube account so keep an eye on both!

CoverGirl Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara
CoverGirl Promotional Shot
My Promotional Shot
The first thing I noticed was that the different kinds of brushes. The mascara works as a two step process. A rubber brush is suppose to provide “extreme volume” and the second traditional bristle brush is suppose to provide “an intensifying top coat.”  I pick up the color very black which is the blackest black in the line. I really do like the packaging but it’s a bit cumbersome. The product comes with .660 fluid ounce of product between the two wands which is about .20 fluid ounces more than a normal mascara comes with. As far as the product and how well it works, I’m fairly impressed with the results. The product promises “10x more noticeable lashes vs. bare lashes” which seems kind of unfair to bare lashes and not quite sure how this is calculated but my lashes did look much longer. 
I started the application with curled eyelashes.

All in all, I think the product provides A LOT of length but not so much in the volume department which is what it is marketed for. It did clump a little bit when I was putting on the second step so I think the 2nd step is kind unnecessary. It’s not a bad mascara by any means but for me, it didn’t give me the volume I was hoping for. The only two cons about this product are it is a VERY wet product so if you have hooded lids (like myself) it transfer everywhere and the two brushes are pretty big. 

Final thoughts:

Good lengthening mascara
Great color
Pretty packaging
2 step process seems unnecessary
May clump
Will transfer to hooded lids because of wet formula
