Va Va Va Voom Lashes & More! CoverGirl Bombshell Collection (PLUS Giveaway)


Recently I had the chance to review the new CoverGirl Bombshell Collection from Walmart and I’m loving it! CoverGirl nails it every time!

Walmart is a great place to shop for the latest in beauty trends and you can find the Bombshell collection including three amazing products both online and in-stores.

-          COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume by LashBlast™ Mascara

-          COVERGIRL Bombshell Shine Shadow by LashBlast

-          COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner

I’ve used a number of the CoverGirl mascaras in the past and the Bombshell Volume is AHHMAZING! It is a 2 step process that gives your eyelashes major volume. If you use just the Step 1 I found that your eyes look how they would normally look with any CoverGirl mascara. But put that Step 2 on and Va Va Va Voom. Lashes for days!

I also absolutely loved the Shine Shadow. I’ve found that many cream shadows tend to smudge easily, create creases in your lids and also fade easily. I was super impressed with these. No smudge, creases or fading at all. You can also layer the colors or add more or less to create whatever look you are going for. My favorite color is the Platinum.

Bombshell Collection Information

Taking cues from the new wave of bombshell beauty, with sexy starlets gracing magazine covers and lingerie-inspired looks on the runways, women are craving beauty tools that will help them stand out and feel sexy. So obsessed with achieving an over-the-top lash look, many women are “cocktailing” multiple mascaras, applying several different formulas to achieve the desired volume and definition.

Bombshell Volume mascara is now the best-selling CoverGirl product at Walmart*! This entirely new mascara experience, unlike any other two-step offering available, features a first-of-its-kind Boost System that has two brushes and two formulas for MEGA VOLUME and DRAMATIC INTENSITY.  It’s time to take lashes way beyond big.  Shades: Very Black, Black, Black/Brown and Brown

-          Step 1: Extreme volume basecoat that loads on the volume with a big brush and mega-volumizing formula to thicken lashes; the result is volume that’s even and clump-free

-          Step 2: Dark, intensifying topcoat that seals the look with a dark, smooth finish; the proprietary micro-thin lacquer offers maximum impact and lasting power in just one coat

With big sexy Bombshell volume, you need sexy shimmer and shine shadow that lasts all night. Shine Shadows feature reflective pigments that play with light to bring dimension to any look.

-          Available in six buildable, blendable, get-me-noticed shades, each shadow is easy to apply and leaves behind a creamy shimmer finish.

-          Shades: Ice Queen, Platinum Card, Color Me Money, Gold Goddess, Copper Fling and Ooh La Lilac

Bombshell eyes can be intense – and your liner should live up to the look.

-          Intensity Liner is a precision felt tip pen with a smooth formula that glides on for a little or a lot of deep, dark sexy.

-          The longwear liner is available in two shades, Pitch Black Passion and Chocolate Kiss – both providing liquid intensity for 24 hours of sexy Bombshell eyes.

Saturday Blogher ’12 Recap

Had a wonderful breakfast and made some new friends (that’s the point right?). Got to meet Elly from Buggin Word. If you didn’t meet her you have to hunt her down next year in Chicago. She’s a blast. And she plays the ukulele!


My day of course consisted of walking around the expo space but I also attended some pretty amazing seminars.

I attended Katie Couric’s keynote luncheon and learned all about her new show “Katie” coming September 10th. Trust me this is a show you won’t want to miss. I love how the new show is going to be very women focused as well as social media focused. Katie is also going to be featuring bloggers at each show. Love that! Check out her keynote HERE!


Some of my fave brands:


Duck – You know the Duck Rape folks! Check out there booth! Amazing what you can do with duck tape.

Zicam – Made my own bracelet with charms which I thought was super cute and a nice little remembrance. I took a charm that said “I Love to Blog”. Appropriate right? Can’t wait to try out Zicam next time I feel a cold coming on.


Hershey’s/Wal-Mart S’mores suite – Ok I loved it 2 years ago and loved it again. I mean if you don’t love S’mores there’s seriously something wrong with you. Trivia – The first printed record of the S’mores recipe appeared in a Girl Scout handbook in 1927.


Starbucks – We were among the first to check out the new Starbuck’s Verismo which is not even in stores yet. It’s a super-convenient, single-cup machine for making espresso-based beverages at home. And it’s coming in late 2012 – just in time to be a splendid gift to you or a coffee lover you know.


Kiss & Broadway Nails – As you know from my previous post I love Kiss & Broadway. This time I got to try out the Nail Dress products which I was super excited about. You put on the adhesive nail color and it goes on over your nail. Then you file your nails so that it fits the shape of your nail perfectly. They come in some really cool colors/patterns, even leopard.



They hubby and I grabbed food from The Halal guys because I had been dying to try them. It was delish!


Then I headed to the Land’s End party off-site.


Came back to the Hilton and attended the first ever Blogher Fashion Show. Click HERE to watch a recap.


Headed to the Cheeseburger Party, followed by a goodbye cocktail with my new friends Debbie & Heather.


As you can tell I had a blast at Blogher ’12. What a whirlwind! Can’t wait til next year!
