Be a Bombshell on your own terms…

Everyone at one time or another thinks about what it might be like to be a bombshell – even if it is just for one day. This month I got to try the COVERGIRL Bombshell Shineshadow by Lash Blast. This is a versatile shadow that is packed with lots of reflective pigments of buildable color. So you can easily control how much of a bombshell you want to be.

I own way more eye shadow that I should. My significant other would tell you I am “way over the legal limit” and he does not even the location of my secret stash. But this eyeshadow earned its spot in my collection. The packaging is unique because it comes in a tube. This was my first eye shadow in a tube but never fear, this is not your mother’s creme eye shadow.

The COVERGIRL Bombshell Shineshadow has a unique texture that is very creamy, yet does not feel wet. In fact it dries fairly quickly with a powder finish. This unique texture means you do not have to wait if you want to add another layer and build more color. This is an important characteristic because I do not always have time to wait for the layers to dry.

Another bonus is that it is versatile – you can wear the COVERGIRL Bombshell Shineshadows alone or as a base with other eye shadows on top. It also pulls double duty as a highlighter. The lighter shades looked really pretty dabbed over the top of my cheekbones and blended well – adding a nice bit of shine and contouring to my cheeks.

How does it feel to wear Bombshell? Really good, actually! It doesn’t feel heavy like some cream shadows. It is not stiff, tacky or sticky. It feels like a traditional powder shadow that is easy to apply. You do not need any special tools either. It is easy to use with your fingers or a brush, and blends very easily.

Tip: If you have oily lids I would consider wearing a primer.

    I was on the fence about these, but now I’m gonna pick one or two up–I love the idea of using them as a highlight, too, so I’m leaning towards the Ice Queen shade. I like the CG Bombshell Volume Mascara–it’s a great drugstore option for lush lashes.

      I agree. As I blended it, it became too sheer. If I layered it on, it creased. I like the Color Tattoos or Mally Eyesticks better.
