Cover Girl Review

I was sent two Cover Girl products from the Blast collection to review. I wear make up everyday and love trying new things so I was really excited about this. I received Shine Blast lip gloss and Smoky Shadow Blast eye shadow.

I got lip gloss pictured above and I love it! It's incredibly smooth, not too shiny or pink, and it lasts a long time. The ShineSculpt applicator is one of the reasons this is different than any other lip gloss. It hugs the lips so the gloss is right where you want it. Shine Blast lip gloss comes in 16 shades and is by far, my new favorite lip gloss.

I was also sent the Smoky Shadow Blast in Citrus Flair (the green/rust combo.) This product makes the smoky eye look super easy to recreate. It took me about 30 seconds per eye and I was done. It's fool proof. It comes in 6 color combinations.

While the concept is great, I think this eye shadow combo needs more time in the testing stage. About 20 seconds after I put it on (and after I got one picture), my eyes started burning and tearing up so bad, I had to wash my face and rinse my eyes. I doubt this is a common reaction but for me, it did not work. I followed the application instructions exactly and, as I said, I wear makeup every day. I was really excited about this eye shadow so I was disappointed in the results.

Overall, I think Cover Girl has created a simple, every day solution to perfect makeup with the Blast Collection. You can go to covergirl.com/blast to discover your favorite color combinations.


Disclosure: I was sent these products by BzzAgent on behalf of CoverGirl to review and share my opinion.

Okay, so I tried this. Maybe I don't know how to apply the darn thing, but it did not give me the reaction that it gave you. maybe I need a lesson from you to make the smokey eye effect yes?
