CoverGirl Plumpify Mascara by blastPRO + CoverGirl Colorlicious Oh Sugar

I’ve got two new CoverGirl products to share with you today!!

 

The First is the Plumpify Mascara by blastPRO.

Its a bit hard to tell in the picture but the brush on this mascara wand has a a rounded tip and the bristles are in a spiral.  Compared to other mascara that I use the brush is huge! I was seriously afraid I was going to poke myself in the eyeball using this.

as you can see in the picture above my left eye has the mascara on and my right eye is bare.  With one coat my lashes were definitely lifted and lengthened as you can see in the picture.

Somehow I managed to not poke out my eyeball with the ginormous wand and applied two coats to each eye for the result you see below.

Pretty nice right?!  And forgive the unfilled brows 🙂

Here is what CoverGirl had to say about the mascara::: “For lashes that look darker, fuller and more voluminous, you need to lift them from the root.  Plumpify’s brush has a unique mix of conical bristles and fins that will grip, lift, load and comb lashes for 50x more volume. ”

Lara says::: Volume? Yes. 50x more volume. Uhhh… nope.  However does this mascara do a good job of giving your lashes volume and length? Absolutely!  I have lots of mascaras that I like and I’m more then happy to add this to my rotation and I would definitely consider picking this up from the drugstore.

Up next is the CoverGirl Colorlicious Oh Sugar! in Soda

CoverGirl Says::: ” Pamper your lips with an indulgent lip balm, Oh Sugar! made with ultra-rich ingredients such as grapeseed oil, avocado butter, and Vitamins C and E and leaves your lips with a hint of tint.  We dare you to compare to a $20 balm!”

Lara Says::: This is a clearly Covergirl trying to dupe Fresh Sugar balms.  And I’m ok with that.  I was doing my best to try and figure out the scent because it felt so familiar but I couldn’t figure it out. Its a sweet candy citrus scent.  While I like this, I don’t know if I  like it enough that I would pick it up in the drugstore.  After wearing for a few hours and eating a piece of pizza the inner of my lips had the color rubbed off and I was left with the look of darker outlined lips.  So this doesn’t wear off evenly, it is good but not great.

Me with the mascara and lip balm.  And yes I take pictures in my car because 1. The lighting in my house sucks. 2. I’m a busy person and its easier to snap selfies in my car on the way to wherever I’m  going (safely of course, in parking lots or red lights) and 3. Because I want to dang it!

Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation

Have you ever heard about a product that everyone seems to be using and finally one day you pick it up and literately kick yourself for not trying it sooner?  Well  I didn’t kick myself but I did ask myself what took me so long… It seems that quite a few of the YouTube channels I watch have been using this foundation and recently it was on sale and I had a coupon, so I thought what the hay, I will give it a try.  Oh my word, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!

I have stayed away from Covergirl products in the past for two reasons.  1.  When I was first starting out with makeup, Covergirl was the cheapest, so that’s what I bought and it holds a lot of bad makeup decision memories for me….  2.  Covergirl has made me breakout in the past, so I pretty much just swore off the whole line, which I now realize was stupid!

This foundation has great coverage and has done an awesome job of keeping my oily skin somewhat matte throughout the day.  I will say, for me personally, I still use a primer and a concealer.  But I have bad skin, if you have clear skin, you may be able to skip these products and only use the foundation as advertised.

Covergirl Smoochies in #tweet me

Eleventh Gorgeous turned me on to the Covergirl Smoochies and I have to say so far I am liking the one I have picked up.  After surveying the aisle at Walmart for a good ten minutes, I decided on #Tweet Me which is a red tone.  I have never in my life wore a red lip because I think I look ridiculous ( like a kid who raided her moms make up drawer ridiculous).  I decided that this sheer balm would be my foray into “trying” a red lip.  This really looks a little more coral on me then red but anywho, I like it!  The formula is a bit waxy for my taste but it isn’t horrible.
