Manicure Monday: Covergirl Bombshell Outlast Nail Polish & Mascara - STACIE RAYE

Manicure Monday: Covergirl Bombshell Outlast Nail Polish & Mascara



I bought this myself.

Happy Monday peeps!  Hope you're not freezing your tushy off.  I so can't wait for spring and this color really puts me in the mood for warmer temps.

I'm wearing Covergirl Outlast in Bombshell.  I had been seeing this color all over the blogosphere and when I saw it in person, I  had to have it.




This picture really doesn't do it justice.  This is one base coat, 2 coats of color, and one top coat.

The color is the bomb, but after I went to the grocery store the next day, I found my polish had chipped badly.  I'm really rough on my nails because of cleaning and other household duties though.

During my trip to CVS, I also picked up the Covergirl mascara to see what all the hype was about.  You put the mascara on in two steps and it supposed to give you  thick lashes.



My lashes felt very heavy after applying the two steps.  Plus, it wasn't easy to take off.  I think it was a clever idea, but I didn't work well for me.  I guess I could just use each one separately, since they don't look bad by themselves, but that defeats it's purpose.

What do you think of the new Bombshell Mascara and Nail polish.  Yay or Nay?

  2. I love CG products. I am glad you posted about that mascara because I thought about trying it. I'll stick to Lash Blast. I do love that color of polish and will try to remember to find it when I am fiddling around the cosmetics section at the store :-)

    1. Shelly, this color is the bomb. You'll love it. I also have Lashblast and I think it gets the job done just fine.

  3. You're right, the color is great! I am all about springy colors right now since Mother nature is not cooperating. But I am hard on my nails, too, so I will probably pass if this polish chips easily. Thanks for the honest review! #SITS

  7. I have been hesitant to try CG nail polish because 1. my budget is stretched thin enough with my polish obsession 2. I was worried about how well it stayed. Thanks for the review!! I love this color on you.

  14. I love the nail polish color. I only use clear nail polish - I don't like taking the time to keep them up. I just bought L'Oreal's Lash Out Butterfly mascara. It is the best non-department store mascara I've ever used.

    1. I think it was a clever idea, but maybe they should have made the formula thinner.

  17. I haven't used either one but the nail polish color is very pretty, too bad it chipped. Have you thought about getting gel nail polish? I heard it works better. #ProductReviewParty

  18. Pretty nail polish. I am allergic to nail polish so I can't wear it. I have thick long lashes naturally (thank God) so I can use mascara sparingly. LOL #productreviewparty
