Bombshelling with Cover Girl

Lately, I feel like I'm 13 again when it comes to makeup, minus the crazy eyeshadow colors and weird glittery lip-glosses; all I want to do is try out new products! That's why I'm super excited to partner with Cover Girl to share my thoughts on their new Bombshell Collection. It's always great to find drugstore products that give you everything you need and don't break the bank.

Yesterday, I tested out Cover Girl's Bombshell Mascara and Eyeliner for a glammed-up day look. The eyeliner, more like a felt-tip pen, is really great for creating bold lines ie: cat-eye. It almost feels like you're drawing! The texture and smoothness  is on point and I was super surprised by the long-lasting formula; my eye makeup looked amazing at the end of the day. I wouldn't suggest the eyeliner for  lower water line as it's formula kind of washes away. The mascara is supposed give you volume (part 1) and intensity (part 2) which it did, but I was missing a curve or curls aspect. If you already have super curly, long lashes, then this could be a great mascara for you.

I had a little fun testing these babies out and even snapped some pre-eye makeup photos (eek!!)

Seriously, eye makeup is magical! Absolutely love the eyeliner and planning to take it with me to NYFW to create bold eye looks. I don't typically go this bold for work and my boss even said "your eye makeup looks fantastic today!"

{Tips & Tricks}
1. Use eyeliner to create bold upperlid lines like a cat eye
2. Prep mascara with an eyelash curler
3. Don't use eyeliner on lower water line, but do use on lash line to create bold definition

*Yes, I made up that definition but it works! Introducing COVERGIRL's NEW BOMBSHELL collection – Featuring a revolutionary dual-system mascara that delivers big, sexy Bombshell lashes. Take your look from ordinary to extraordinary!
