So, first of all I want to apologize for the lack of posts for the last two weeks. It’s been a crazy time for me personally and professionally and I really needed to take a break.
So, back to business as usual. This week is Mascara Review #7 (are you counting the weeks left? There’s 7.5, not including this one, so you’ll read about a lot of mascara in the next few weeks.) and it’s featuring Covergirl Bombshell Volume by LashBlast mascara in Very Black.
The brilliant two-step Bombshell Boost System combines extreme volume with an intensifying top coat for big, sexy bombshell lashes. Step One: Apply the extreme volume basecoat. Step Two: Finish with the intensifying top coat.
I hated this mascara. I wore it three times to do this review and every single time, I didm’t like it.
You can see that it has pretty reasonable length and volume but I just didn’t like it and I really had to nail down the reasons why.
1. Two step mascara means more time to my already busy morning routine. And even with two steps, this mascara seemed pretty comparable to a couple of others that I have. So, Covergirl, just figure out how to get this great volume and length in ONE STEP.
Here is a picture of my lashes with just Step 1:
Not bad, you could probably just stop there and be fine. But, my complaints don’t end there.
2. My lashes were hard all day. Now, they have two to four coats of mascara on them, I don’t expect them to be soft but it was so annoying that I found myself poking at the lashes over the day. And fiddling with your makeup during a meeting is never a good thing. It was almost like they had hairspray on them, you know, that kind of hard.
Overall, I do not recommend this mascara. There are much better, or at the very least equal, products that do the same job and you don’t have to fiddle around with two wands. It also pisses me off that they have obviously placed falsies on Katy Perry in all the ads for this mascara. And yes, I know they do for all mascaras but this one really, really burns for some reasons.
Try any new mascaras that you loved? Or tried this one? What did you think? Happy Shopping!
