Mega volume and dark intensity in one mascara for an over the top bombshell look from Cover Girl. Step 1 volumize – load on for unbelievably big volume – Step 2 – intensify – seal in with one coat for an intense, dark all day finish. Beautifully separated lashes. Removes with CoverGirl makeup remover.
This review is for CoverGirl’s new Volume Mascara, which is part of the company’s Bombshell line. This mascara comes in 4 shades, and has 2 sides: a volumizing side and an intensifying topcoat. The shade depicted is Very Black.
This mascara comes in a violet-colored, fairly thick tube with two ends. One end has a brush just like CoverGirl’s LashBlast mascara and the other has a more narrow brush with longer bristles. Each side is numbered according to the order you should apply it.
You can use each side by itself, or the sides together. If you use the sides together, you should apply them in the order they’re labeled because the finish looks better that way.
When used alone, the first side gives you some volume while tinting your lashes a very dark black. The second side gives your lashes length and definition. Used together, you get a bit of both.
The second side definitely locks in the mascara. I suspect it has a waterproof formula because it requires a waterproof makeup remover.
Ease of Use: 9/10
The first side does a good job of not clumping with the first 2-3 coats, just don’t wait for each coat to dry between coats. The second side should be limited to 1-2 coats because the waterproof formula will start to fuse the lashes together if you apply too many coats.
For $11.99, you get 0.66 fl oz (20 ml) of product. Unlike some duo-ended mascaras that slight you on the amount of product, this mascara gives you almost twice the amount you’d typically get, and for less than twice the amount.
