The mascara has two heads, labelled 1 and 2. The first head has short rubber bristles and it reminds me a lot of the Covergirl LashBlast. This first step is supposed to deliver volume and it kinda does just that. The formula is a drier cream, again, very similar to LashBlast, which I was never particularly fond of. I just doesn`t work well with my lashes. I can get a decent flare and I can get the lashes covered but I need to put in some serious work to get mediocre results.
Head 1- Volume
Head 2- Length
The mascara does wear well, I`ve had no issues with smudging or flaking and it holds a curl pretty well through the day.
The worst part about this mascara however is the removal process. I am not sure if it`s waterproof but boy, is it a pain to take off. I usually have to soak my lashes in oil and eye make-up remover to manage to get the bulk of it off. I say the bulk of it because this bad boy never really removes completely. After a long session of rubbing my eyes with a shit ton of eye makeup remover I am usually left with crispy lashes as a thin layer of product still stays on. No matter what!
The culprit is the step two of the mascara. I have no idea what kind of wicked formula it is but it`s an absolute nightmare to get off. I`ve had my sister try it out to confirm that it`s not just me.
Overall, Bombshell is a pass. It`s a bad mascara, plain and simple While the results can be okay, while it wears well and doesn`t flake, the bulky packaging, the weird design with the short wands, the difficulty level of application and the nightmare of removal makes it a bad mascara in my books.
