CoverGirl is well known across the beauty world as always having some pretty awesome mascaras. Very Black Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara is the latest and is available in four shades – Very Black 800, Black 805, Black Brown 810 and Brown 815.
On the eye below I used one coat of Step 1 followed by one coat of Step 2. While I don’t think my lashes scream out about me being a Bombshell (but let’s face it, everyone knows I am anyway haha) I did think that this is a nice every day type of mascara for me. It coated the lashes well and did an awesome job lengthening.
What is your take on the CoverGirl Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara?
CoverGirl Very Black Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara retails for $8.99 (approx.) and is available at your local drugstore/mass market retailer.
No matter how much makeup you put on your face, mascara is one of those products that finishes off not only your eye look, but completes your entire face as well.
Below I’ve compiled my Top 10 Must-Have Mascaras. These are the products and wands that work the best for me and my particular lashes. Some of these I’ve used consistently for over three years or more (replacing the actual mascara itself, of course!). Check them out and see if any of your faves made my list!
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara. $10 gets you amazing bottom lashes to match your high-voltage upper lashes that you’ll get by using the rest of the mascaras on this list Bottom Lash is awesome because the brush is tiny and gets all of those hard to reach lash areas on the top and bottom of your lids.
Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant. If you ever needed the perfect lengthening mascara, you’ve found it right here. This looks great on it’s own, but when you put Too Faced Better Than Sex on top the effect is amazing!
MAC Plushlash in PlushBlack. Separates, curls, thickens and lengthens. No matter how many mascaras I love, this one always ends up being the mascara I go back to for daily use.
Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill. The brush is thick, giving lashes a lot of oomph. I love that this one never flakes or smudges all day. Very long lasting! There are several versions of this mascara, but I’ve found I like the original one the best.
CoverGirl LashBlast Clump Crusher. It just does not clump. When this came out bloggers even tried THIRTY coats! Not only will it keep your lashes clump-free, but they’ll look awesome too!
Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Mascara. I discovered this one when I was in the 2012 Allure Beauty Blogger of the Year competition. For the purposes of the competition we were sent a huge box of products to assist in the challenges. This mascara is one I still use to this day!
Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam. My first Rimmel product! This came in an Influenster VoxBox and is now a staple for me. The brush is in an hourglass shape and just does amazing things to my lashes. Coating well for thickening, but doesn’t go clump crazy.

A few days ago I announced that Michelle from All Lacquered Up (who is clearly my sister from another mister) and myself would be #NAILGATING for CoverGirl at the Steelers/Browns game on November 24, 2013 in Cleveland, Ohio. We met some amazing people and had a great time, regardless of the weather! AND. The STEELERS TOOK HOME THE WIN 27-11!!! Standing in all that snow and wind was so worth it!
I’m excited to share with you some highlights of the weekend that Michelle & I had as well as show you some looks and swatches of some products that I used to get ready for the game!
We started off meeting up at the Oscar Giovanni Salon & Spa in Concord, OH. This place is gorgeous and the employees were so amazing. (FYI: I was told Oscar himself is a Steelers fan!). Shout outs to Chrissy & Jenna who did our #fanicures!
To get ready for the big game, CoverGirl set us up with some beauty goodies to do our makeup as well! Below are swatches of the products I received and a break down of my look.
(L-R: Ink It! in Black Ink, Gold Flame Flamed Out Shadow Pencil, Melted Caramel Flame Flamed Out Shadow Pencil, Silver Flame Flamed Out Shadow Pencil, Blazing White Flamed Out Shadow Pot, Melted Gold Flamed Out Shadow Pot and Molten Black Flamed Out Shadow Pot.)
Apologies for the not so great cell pic above. I used Melted Caramel Flame Flamed Out Shadow Pencil as the base and applied Gold Flame Flamed Out Shadow Pot all over the lid and through the crease. Molten Black Flamed Out Shadow Pot is at the outer V and through the crease while Blazing White Flamed Out Shadow Pot was used at the inner corners and to highlight. The eyeliner is Ink It! in Black Ink and the mascara is Flamed Out.
(L-R: Lipslicks Smoochies in #be sweet & #b4n, Clean Glow Blush in Roses – swatched separately and blended.
Game time was amazing. It was really interesting to see the energy levels of fans of both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns. The fans of both teams have a lot of loyalty and come from all over! I even met some Steelers fans sitting next to me that were in from Detroit! Below are some pics of Michelle and I #nailgating and hanging out at the stadium with fans as well as some shots of the field during the game.
I had the time of my life in Cleveland with Michelle representing CoverGirl at the football game for #nailgating. Weekends don’t get much better than this! Thank you CoverGirl!
