(NBC) - Bigger, bolder bombshell eyelashes. Cover Girl's Bombshell Volume Mascara offers luscious lashes with just two steps.

Amy Schavolt says she saw instant results.

"It said use up to one to two coats on each side of the product and I did as so," said Schavolt. "I had a couple of people say wow your eyelashes look really nice and I was all excited."

But in a blink of an eye, those results were overshadowed by a clumpy, gooey mess that was hard to get off; even with makeup remover.
 
"I was wiping downwards with the cotton ball and noticed a chunk of my eyelashes fell into the palm of my hand," added Schavolt.
 
Cover Girl says Schavolt's eyelash mishap is not typical, and they have not had other complaints.

But, other women are sounding off on their website, adding their eyelash horror story to the reviews.

Schavolt is worried about how long it will take for her lashes to grow back. 

Dr. Alan Bauman repairs damaged eyelashes and says Schavolt may have to conceal the lost lashes longer than she wants.

"Eyelashes can take some time to rebound. It can take two to four months," said Bauman.

Over time, problems like Schavolt's can lead to permanent damage. Bauman says consumers should choose products carefully as more cosmetic companies are trying to deliver runway worthy looks in a second.

"With each of the cosmetic enhancements there comes some risk the consumer has to be careful what they choose it can be buyer beware," noted Bauman.
 
It is a lesson Amy Schavolt reflects on daily.

"Now I have to walk around with a chunk of my lashes missing out of my eye."
