Being the beauty junkie that I am, you could imagine my surprise and insane delight when I received an email from CoverGirl asking me if they could send me some of their new, not yet in store products.
I mean, CoverGirl is one of the first brands of make-up that I have ever bought and it's such a classic so it was a really proud moment for me.
The package arrived over the weekend (while I was away at school) so I played with them on Sunday.
The package was adorable with cute, blue confetti pieces and I was excited to dig in. The two products I received were a new eyeliner and mascara. The eyeliner is called "Intensify Me Eyeliner by LashBlast" and the mascara is the "Super Sizer Mascara"
I haven't been wearing eyeliner a lot lately but last week, I did and I realized how much I liked how I looked and that I missed wearing it. I was probably equally excited for both products but maybe slightly biased toward the eyeliner. I haven't found an eyeliner that I've LOVED recently so this one is a contender.
The eyeliner is very odd. It is a flat yet rounded, stiff brush that is unlike anything I have ever seen. It's SUPER black. It's one of the blackest eyeliners I have ever come across and it makes the most precise, thick, black line. It's amazing. I think I'm in love.
The mascara however, isn't my favorite. It's not that there's anything wrong with it, it's just not what I prefer. It's a very skinny wand that has short, synthetic bristles. It didn't give me much volume, as those types of brushes usually don't, but it did lengthen my lashes. I have very long lashes to begin with so that's why I usually prefer thicker, fuller brushes to give me lots of volume and separation.
I will, of course, use the mascara because I have it and I don't totally hate it but it's just not what I prefer. Who knows, after a few times of wearing it I may fall in love. I don't discriminate against beauty products!
I am so grateful that CoverGirl chose me to try out these products before anyone else! It's a total honor and I am really excited to use both of these products in my daily make-up routine!
