Covergirl Bombsell Mascara Review

Hey guys!! Has any one tried the new Covergirl Bomshell volume macara by lash blast? I have not tried the original lash blast mascara, but this new Bombshell one looked interesting to me!

First I'm going to say that this mascara is huge. I love the color but I think it's too big and chunky. However, this probably means you get more product in the two tubes. 

So basically you use side number one first for volume and side two for length and intensity. 

Side one has the huge rubbery wand. I'm not really a fan of big or rubbery mascara wands but I like how the other side has a normal wand. 

Side two has a normal wand. 

What this mascara claims to do-
" 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."

Heres how it looks on my lashes-

Here is one coat of the step one side. 

Two coats of the step one side. 

Here is one coat of the step two side ontop of the two coats of the step one side. (um what?) 

And here is two coats of both sides of the mascara. I put one coat on my bottom lashes of the side two. 

My thoughts on this mascara-
I am really happy with the results I got with this. I think it both gave me volume and lengthened my lashes. It doesn't make my lashes as thick as some mascaras do, which I prefer, but I still really like it.
The formula is nice too. It's not too wet or dry so it makes it easy to apply and doesn't clump. The only issue I had was on side two the mascara was too dry and hardly any product came out. But I honesty think I probably just picked a bad one and they probably aren't all like this. I just dip my wand in the other side to get product in it and it works just fine. 
I think both of the wands are nice and the bigger one doesn't bug me like I thought it would. 
Having a two sided mascara can be a bit tedious, especially if you are running late in the boring. But honestly, since both sides of the mascara are great, I think they would look fine on their own without having to use both sides. 
This mascara is priced at $9.99 at target which is a little pricey for a drugstore one. I had a $3 off coupon so that's why I decided to try it. 

Would I repurchase this mascara? Probably not. I do like it, but there is still other drugstore mascaras that I like better. It was fun to try out though! 

Have you tried this mascara? If so leave your thoughts in the comments! 


  1. I'm so glad you did this reveiw! I was wondering is it worth it versus other drugstore mascara I like. I'm not a fan of thick wands on mascara's either. Too bad it wasn't a hit for you, but your eyelashes look great!

    1. Thanks Pilar!! It's a good one but definitely not my favorite! And it's kind of expensive lol!

  2. Haven't tried it, but I love the rich black color and your lashes look great!
