I was breezing through the drug store the other day while waiting for my oil to get changed in my car, and noticed that my local drug store never carries any of the new products from my favorite brands. I had vaguely heard about the Bombshell mascara, but didn’t know that there was actually a whole line to go along with it. Naturally, anything called Bombshell is going to be right up my alley, so I picked up the Volume Mascara and the Shine Shadow from the collection.
Here is how I got the look:
- I started with an eye primer all over the lid.
- Next, I applied CoverGirl Bombshell Shine Shadow in Copper Fling with my finger, adding more layers on the lid, and fewer working my way up to the brow bone.
- Using a liquid black eyeliner, I created a simple cat eye.
- I applied the CoverGirl Bombshell Volume Mascra using one coat of the base formula and one coat of the finishing formula.
The Shine Shadow gives a good shine, and does well in terms of lasting when used with a good primer. But this is not a pigmented formula, at least not the shade I used, and gives more of a natural finish. Which when you combine with intense eye liner and a good mascara, isn’t a bad thing at all.
The mascara is a fairly decent formula, but it doesn’t stand out in my collection. I’m always going for the biggest, boldest, inkiest lashes I can get, and while I’ll continue to use it, it doesn’t top my list. There are better drama mascaras both in the drug store AND the makeup counter. I’ll keep playing with it, and update if I figure out a way to pump up the volume.
