Yes, You ARE a Bombshell! Brought to you by CoverGirl

Who do you think of when you hear the word "bombshell?"  Marilyn Monroe?  Jean Harlow? Elizabeth Taylor?  Jayne Mansfield? Perhaps Sophia Loren or Brigitte Bardot.  Maybe even Ann-Margret.

For my younger readers I'm talking about women like Eva Mendes, Scarlett Johansson, Kate Upton, and Beyonce.

Whichever lady comes to mind, there is one common theme.  GLAM.

Kate Upton

Now I've never thought of myself as glamorous. I've always heard words like "fresh faced" and "girl next door" used to describe my features. Plus, being clumsy and goofy doesn't really send off the sexy, alluring vibe.

Then I received CoverGirl's Bombshell Collection. At first I thought I would look like a little girl playing dress up or putting on mom's makeup. But honestly, it turned out completely differently than I expected.

Check out the video of my Bombshell experience and my product break down below.


Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara

This is my favorite product out of the collection.  Its easy to apply and I love the look it gives.  Plus it really does last all day and is practically smudge proof.  I have worn this every day since the video and definitely have a new appreciation for CoverGirl.

Bombshell ShineShadow by LashBlast in Ooh La Lilac

This liquid/cream eyeshadow is highly pigmented, easy to apply, and easily blends.  It stays put all day without creasing and can be applied to create a simple or dramatic look. 

Bombshell Intensity Liner by LashBlast in Pitch Black Passion

Despite my fumbling, this felt tip liner is easier to apply than most.  I honestly have the hardest time with liquid and felt liners.  I usually am unable to do a decent eye lining job at all using anything other than a kohl or pencil.  But I was able to with this one.  Once dry, it stays all day and does give an intense look.  Definitely a product any bombshell would make use of.

COVERGIRL LipPerfection™ Lipcolor in Bombshell

I LOVE how bold this lip color is! I have used it a few times since making the video and now carry this lipstick with me.  It goes on very smooth and the color doesn't bleed- which is ideal for those of us with thinner lips.

Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Bombshell

This product was absent from the video.  I didn't think watching me put on nail polish would be very intriguing.  I used this polish on my toes and it is perfect for Valentines Day and Spring.  It may actually be one of my favorite polishes I own.  The color is a beautifully dark, vibrant pink with tons of shimmer in it.  Not chunks of glitter, but shimmer; like you find in the more expensive nail polishes and lacquers.  It applies seamlessly without any streaks or bumps and really compliments any skin tone.
