I am a undercover all-things beauty fanatic. Besides being brow obsessed (tutorial coming soon!) and I nude lip obsessed, mani obsessed and all eye lash obsessed. When it comes to my lashes I like them long and thick and want my mascara to give me the va-va-voom, hey honey you doing look.
I do have some holy grail ones, Dior Diorshow, Maybeline Falsies, and Maybeline Illegal lengths, but I am always looking to add a new product to the list. My most recent acquisition is Covergirl's Bombshell curvaceous Mascara. It claims to be water-proof so what better time to try it out then the nuptials of two dear friends I was to attend. Additionally it states that "it gives Mega volume and dark intensity for an over the top bombshell look." Let's see if proof is in the wand (see what I did there).
Step 1 volumize - load on for unbelievably big volume (so the instructions say). I found that this side of the mascara unit had a very unpleasant odor. No bueno, but I carried on. The things we do in the name of beauty.
So whats the verdict. My mascara stayed on all night, through all my tears from the I do's, to the first dance, to the reception, and all they way to the after-party (yes there was an after party and yes it was sweaty). So it passed the longevity check. Lets look at the pro's and con's:
Gives great length
Easy to apply
Stayed put all night
Weird odor for wand 1
Bulky and sizable
water proof so it has to be removed with eye make-up remover
Taking into account that it stayed on all night and made my lashes GORGEOUS I would give it a C-. It would be a B+ if it was not for the awful smell on wand 1. The tube itself is rather big preventing it from being a solid A. If those things were corrected, then it would probably become a product I would reach for often.
Has anyone else tried this product? What are your thoughts? I would love to hear from other beauty obsessed gals (and guys too).
