Department Store Make-up Look... without the price!

Recently arriving in the mail were a couple of packages from BzzAgent. Being a member of BzzAgent, from time to time I am sent products to try and report on for market research. If you enjoy trying out new products and sharing your findings with blog world you should sign up too! (It's free!)
The first package I received was from CoverGirl. It contained their new ShineBlast lip gloss & Smoky ShadowBlast eye shadow. I was excited to try these products as I had recently purchased "Lash Blast Length" from Target and was extremely impressed! It lengthened my lashes better and flaked less than the more expensive brand I'd been using from Ulta. The angled tip on the ShineBlast lip gloss applicator was perfect. It was easy to apply, even on the run, and didn't look messy or sticky like some glosses. (I had just purchased a lipgloss with a brush applicator from Bobbi Brown and enjoy the Cover Girl much more ... plus it gives you a great look for much less!)
I decided to add a little oomph to my look one evening and tried out the Smoky Shadowblast eye shadow in "Onyx Smoke." I'll start by saying I am no make up artist but when I added this to my regular eye liner routine for a night out, I got the great "oomph" look I was trying to achieve! I even got some great complements on my "fierce" eyes! I use the white end on a daily basis to highlight, then add more color for a fun evening out!
Three cheer to CoverGirl & their new line of "blast" products! If you are interested in trying them out for yourself, I have several $2 off coupons to be used towards any Cover Girl product I'll be happy to mail you one!

I'll spend good money on foundation but I can't beat Cover Girl products for other stuff. I'll have to give this one a try!

I actually bought the same mascara and really like the way it looked but found that it seemed to wear away after just a few hours and needed to be reapplied. I have now discovered panoramic curl by Loreal and am obsessed!!! I highly recommend you try it!
