COVERGIRL MAKE-UP SPECIAL - FEATURING A COLLECTION OF MY FAVOURITE COVERGIRL MAKE-UP MUCH NEEDED ESSENTIALS !


HELLO BEAUTIES! 

This week I discovered more Covergirl basic make-up essentials and I am very impressed with their latest range. I usually pick up Covergirl products from my local supermarket or chemist as they're super affordable and I simply love the pigmentation and colours of their lipsticks, eye shadows and especially their lip glosses. 

I am so excited to share with you all of my experiences of these Covergirl favourites! They include the following: 
  • Covergirl - Mascara in "Flamed out" (Shade black/brown) 
  • Covergirl - Bombshell shineshadow (In colours - 305 Color Me Money + 320 Ooh La Lilac.) 
  • Covergirl - XL Nail Gel (In Bodacious Berry 840) 
  • Covergirl - Lip Gloss (In 630 Colorlicious, Give me guava) 

I used all of these products for my go to look during the day and also for an evening look. These products are perfect if you're looking for a simple and cute look... So keep on reading to see what I thought girlies! 


Covergirl - Mascara in "Flamed out" (Shade black/brown blaze 310) 

The Covergirl Flamed Out Mascara is a very volumnizing and waterproof type of mascara. The brush is in a form of an hour glass shaped brush where it allows you to grab more mascara product and distribute this to your lashes. My lashes felt more volumnized, thicker and the texture of the mascara did not flake or clump. The best part of it all is that it is has a waterproof formula. I tried and tested this and found no smudges at all and this definitely would be so ideal for those looking for a type of mascara that does not leave smudges when exposed to water. (Note: Ideal for a rainy day) 

For this mascara, it definitely has strong hold to your eyelashes and I felt that it kept my lashes coated longer with volume. It didn't give me any clumps on my lashes so I was really impressed with that. The brush design is more fuller and is in the form of a curved design. I would say that it coats each individual lash more equally and I found it very easy to use. I have thick eyelashes which grow out straight and so when I used an eyelash curler, I made sure that my lashes were really curled before applying on the mascara. It gave me more of fluttery and thick look to my lashes and overall I am quite satisfied with the product. With just two coats of mascara, my lashes look more thicker and you can tell that it gives off a more volumnized look. 

When removing the product, it was very simple and hassle free. The mascara was removed in an instant once I used my make-up wipes to clear off the mascara. The Flamed Out Mascara makes a perfect mascara for a daily and basic go to look for the day. Definitely ideal for day wear since it has a waterproof formula present in it so I would give this a 5/5 stars! 

POSITIVES:
  • Very volumnizing. 
  • Comes in a hour glass shape brush which is ideal for covering each individual lash equally. 
  • With just two coats of applying the mascara will give more thicker looking lashes. 
  • Waterproof. 
  • Easy to use.
  • Comes in a cute, super red look packaging.  
NEGATIVES:
  • Zilch. 
BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • Curl your lashes before applying on the mascara for a better coverage.

Covergirl - Bombshell Shineshadow (In colours - 305 Color Me Money + 320 Ooh La Lilac.) 

Covergirl's Bombshell Shineshadow is quite a lovely pigmented creamy eyeshadow type of eye product. Their colours in 305 Colour me Money and 320 Ooh La Lilac are such gorgeous angelic colours if you're looking for a creamy type of eye shadow. They're very pigmented in colour and they look gorgeous when applied onto your eye crease. 

What is great about the eye shadow is that it has a sheer metallic look to it where it offers a dewy look. I quite like the colour it gives off when applied on and it did not feel sticky or oily at all. I used my fingertips and eye shadow brush to evenly distribute the product along my eye crease as that was the easier way of applying it from its 5.4ml tube. In terms of the product packaging, I found it to be very unique but I think they could increase the size of the product so that we can get more of it. That was the only thing I would recommend should they look to improve this product. 

The texture of the product is in a mousse-form and it's more simple and easier to distribute onto your eyelids. I thought that the texture would have been in a liquid form but to my surprise it was a mousee form which is always great because it won't be as messy as the liquid form. I find this really appealing about the eyeshadow mousse and I definitely would look to repurchase this at my local drugstore. The eyeshadow dries really quick when applied onto the eyelids because being a dry texture base - this means that the finish is very quick and you don't have to wait long for it to dry. 

Not only was this eye shadow use on my eyelids, but also this makes a great highlighter for cheekbones. You can choose to use the Bombshell in many ways so there's always a multi-purpose for using this product. Overall, it's pretty decent for an eyeshadow mousse and it's very unique! The colours used made my eyes look subtle and elegant at the same time without going overboard with having too much on. 

I am giving this a 4.5/5 stars! They have other colours in their range - please see below for more swatches of the colours. 

POSITIVES:
  • Highly pigmented.
  • Sheer, glowy look. 
  • In the form of a mousse texture, with fast drying effect. 
NEGATIVES:
  • Only thing is that it comes in a 5.4ml tube, they could perhaps offer a bigger sized tube. 
BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • Use your fingertips to evenly distribute the eyeshadow along your eyelids.  
WHERE TO PURCHASE:

  • Or if you're in Australia, you can find them at your local Priceline store, Target or Chemist Warehouse .

Covergirl - XL Nail Gel (In Bodacious Berry 840) 

Covergirl's XL Nail Gels claims that you can get the gel like look without the hassle of going to a nail salon. You can get the thick, plump polish look on your nails without use of a UV light. With just ONE coat of the polish, it gives you a natural and amazing shine and also an intense colour to your nails.

So, I put this to the test to see how good of a nail polish this could be. The colour in Bodacious Berry 840 is actually shiny, bright and so vibrant in its dark purple colour. It took only ONE coat of nail polish for my nails to saturate the colour and give off a more plump look. The nails remained the same for a good six days and without any chipping. I suppose what they're trying to achieve when they say 'Without the use of a UV light' is that the nail polish really does give off a more quality product to its nail polish range and that it lasts longer, similarly to you having shellac nails done. It's quite easy and convenient for me to just use this type of nail polish because all it takes is one or two coats and I have achieved the look that I want. I am so happy with Covergirl's XL Nail Gel and am giving this a 5/5 stars! 

POSITIVES:
  • Gives you more of a vibrant finish to your nails. 
  • Achieve the desired look in just one coat. 
  • Fast drying formula. 
NEGATIVES:
  • Zilch! 
BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • File, buff out nails before applying on the nail polish.

Covergirl - Lip Gloss (In 630 Colorlicious, Give me guava) 

Wow! I think I found my ideal lip gloss in Covergirl - 630 Colorlicious Give me Guava. The lip gloss is so rich in colour, gives me more of a vibrant shine and does not feel sticky at all. Covergirl promises that this lipgloss range are very pigmented in colour whilst leaving your lips feeling super moisturised, soft and silky. 

So the lipgloss felt very lightweight when on lips and it looked very appealing. The shade in Give me guava actually a nice, soft and sultry look to my lips! My lips felt so soft and smooth with the lip gloss on and the fragrance smelt so delicious and addictive. It smelt of sweet vanilla honey and it's seriously addictive every time I apply this onto my lips. 

For a drugstore product, the formula of the gloss felt of high quality and really suited my standards. The packaging of the lip gloss came in a sleek and thin type of package, along with a nice sponge brush applicator to coat your lips with. The lip gloss goes on really well and also leaves your lips feeling super hydrated. It gave my lips more added shine and glossiness to it which is what I always love to see about lip glosses. This is the perfect lip gloss to pop into your purse and whenever you feel like touching up, Covergirl's Lip glosses make the perfect item to carry with you. I really enjoyed using this product so hence I am giving this a full 5/5 stars. 

POSITIVES:
  • Very moisturising and hydrating.
  • Non-sticky formula. 
  • Very glossy when on lips. 
  • Easy to use. 
NEGATIVES:
  • Zilch! 
BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • Touch up every hour or so when you want to retain the glossiness in your lips.
