I have had the opportunity to review three new makeup products from CoverGirl!Â They are from their new Bombshell line.Â They are supposed to give you a big, bold new look. I love makeup, and I especially love trying new makeup.Â So when I heard about this opportunity, I was all over it like a monkey on a cupcake.
CoverGirl sent me a Walmart gift card so I could purchase these products either online through Walmart’s website, or in store.Â Well, I was anxious, so I bought them in store.Â I usually prefer ordering online because I can get Swagbucks for my purchases, but when I was in Walmart and saw they had all my colors in the store, I just went ahead and bought them.
CoverGirl also asked me to do a video review/tutorial on how I applied my makeup and how it looked, so you can view that here.
I have to say, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Bombshell line.Â I usually feel like my makeup isn’t bold enough, so I have to apply it a couple times.Â And I don’t wear really bold makeup, but it just seems like some of the quality of makeup I get sometimes is just so weak.Â Not that problem with Bombshell!Â Apply once, and you get a bold look that will last all day.
First I tried their Bombshell Shineshadow.Â This is an eyeshadow.Â I chose the color “Copper Fling”, because I prefer neutral shades in browns for my eye shadows.Â I didn’t know if it was going to be a liquid or a powder, but I was very pleasantly surprised to find out it was a cream.Â (I guess reading the package that said “creamy shimmer finish” would have given me a clue.. just sayin’).Â Just squeeze a little (or a lot!) on your finger and blend it in on your eyelids.Â You can make it as bold as you’d like.Â I found out that a little bit goes a long way!Â I love the shimmer it gave my eyes, and it was so easy to apply.
Then I tried the Bombshell Liner.Â This is an eyeliner, and I chose the color “Pitch Black”.Â It had a very fine tip point to it, which made applying the liner very easy and effortless.Â Â It glided right on.Â I’ve tried other “pen” liners and they always turned out disastrous.Â They would smudge, drip, be too thick, whatever.Â Not the case with Bombshell.Â I loved how it looked on my eyes and that it was so easy to apply.
Last I tried the Bombshell Volume Mascara.Â This thing is awesome.Â I chose black. Â It is 2 mascaras in one!Â Side #1 you put on first, and it gives you volume.Â Then you apply it from side #2 and it makes your lashes dark, intense, and seals in the color.Â I looked like I had eyelash extensions!Â It was so easy to apply, and it gave me the look I wanted.Â Big, bold, long lashes!Â LOVE IT.
There wasn’t a thing about any of these products I did not love.Â I’m not just saying that – anyone who follows my blog regularly knows that I have a tendency to be “brutally honest”.Â Â I am in love with CoverGirl’s Bombshell line.Â IN. LOVE.
Here’s my very embarrassing BEFORE pics (I seriously don’t even recognize myself in these!!) and the after pics…
Eye makeup makes ALL the difference in the world!Â I don’t care what anyone says, lol.Â Â If there’s one makeup product I won’t leave the house without, it’s my eye makeup.Â Especially my eyeliner.Â I mean, look at those pictures… without eye makeup, I look like I have mousey, beady little eyes and just, eww!Â Â Like, just kill me now.
Now that I have my eye makeup on again, and have a new line that I absolutely love, I’m a happy girl.
