CoverGirl Liquiline Blast

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

erase2If you’re not that skilled with eyeliner, you’ll like CoverGirl’s Liquiline Blast Eyeliner. It has the intensity of a liquid liner (which can be difficult to use), and it has a smudger on one end which makes it easy to correct crooked lines. We especially liked how dark the eyeliner went on – some pencils can be very waxy and don’t leave enough pigment behind. You can do both subtle and dramatic looks with this eyeliner.

Tip: For an expertly blended smokey eye, try putting the eyeliner on first, then put on gunmetal gray eyeshadow on top.

CoverGirl LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Removing waterproof mascara can be pretty annoying so we were intrigued when we saw CoverGirl’s LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara which claims to stay put for 24 hours, but it’s not waterproof. The mascara brush is definitely huge, and the nubs on the brush really allow you to coat your lashes. However, this is a formula that is best in one layer. If you try to do multiple coats of mascara you’ll get clumps. The look is volumized of course, and you should really wiggle the wand upon application to prevent your lashes from sticking together. After some trial and error we loved the look. However, this is not a mascara that’s going to easily wash away. We suggest using our favorite, Neutrogena Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes, by using about 3 swipes. If you don’t remove this mascara properly at night it will definitely travel under you’re the eye area by morning (a little bit of a raccoon look). Our verdict is that  this is a great mascara for when you’re going out, but requires more effort for makeup removal than every day users might expect.

CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Lip Color

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Since fuchsia lipstick is in style, we’ve been reviewing this great pink shade by different brands. We reviewed NYX Round Lipstick in 639 Eucalyptus, and this week we tried CoverGirl’s Blast Flipstick Lip Color in Pucker. With this lipstick, you get two colors that you can blend or wear separately. One color is fairly close to the NYX color we tried, and the other is more of a frosted pink. Priced at around $10.00, this may be a little more expensive than other lipsticks in the drugstore but you’re actually getting two lipsticks. The tube is pretty   large so they weren’t stingy with the product at all. What we thought stood out the most about this formula was its staying power. It goes on and on for the entire day and it’s very moisturizing. These are real full coverage lipsticks, so the shade you see is exactly how it appears on your lips. Frosted lipstick is a bit more challenging to wear, so our favorite side was the fuchsia shade.

CoverGirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Lipstick and lip gloss have a completely different look and feel. If you’re searching for something that’s in between you may want to try CoverGirl’s NatureLuxe Gloss Balm. The subtle color in this Gloss Balm is not as strong as a lipstick, and it’s not as shiny as a gloss. You also get the benefit of SPF 15 and nurturing mango and shea butter. We thought this was a great formula for going to the office, going to the gym, or anywhere where you don’t want to look like you have obvious makeup. Thankfully, our lips were soft but we didn’t have to go through the stickiness that gloss can have. We tried NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in shade Grenache (235), which is a very natural looking plum shade.

Cosmetology courses via accredited online colleges are an option for those of you who also have a passion for beauty.

CoverGirl TRUcheeks Blush

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

We are fans of the CoverGirl TRUblend line, which is a line of cosmetics that adjust to go with your skin tone. Once you know what your foundation is, there are corresponding concealers, pressed powders, and blushes marked with the same number as your foundation. It eliminates the amount of time many of us spend in the drugstore aisle staring at products and trying to figure out the right shades. TRUcheeks blush has a palette of 3 complementary colors that are meant to be mixed to get the perfect shade you want. However, if you’re like us and like a contoured look, you can you use the lightest color to highlight your cheek bones, the mid-color for the apples of your cheeks, and the darkest color for the hollow of your cheek.
