By now, if you ever go to the grocery store, you know that Cover Girl has released a new mascara that they are calling “Bombshell”. I wanted to try it out, especially after watching Kandee Johnson’s review of it on YouTube.
There are two steps to this mascara. Step one is the brush in the top middle. It coats your lashes with a black primer. Step two is the brush in the top right. This really adds a lot of length and volume!
The big middle picture is after applying both steps. The bottom left and middle are me without any mascara on. The bottom right is my eye closed with mascara for comparison purposes.
I really like the volume this mascara adds. I had been using Benefit They’re Real, which I loved! I think this one is a good drugstore replacement for that. I do think that Cover Girl Bombshell clumps a little bit more than They’re Real, but paying 1/3 of the cost for it is a good tradeoff.
The only really negative about this mascara is it’s really hard to get off! The good news about that means it lasts all day. The bad news is that you’re scrubbing your eyes trying to get it off! Even a good eye makeup remover has a hard time with it. I find myself using a different mascara on the weekends so I can give my eyes a rest from this hard-core mascara.
The bottom line: I like this mascara a lot and I will likely repurchase it.
Have you tried it? What do you think?
