Cover Girl Eye Enhancers in Country Woods

Some girls don't like wearing eyeshadows because of the extra work involved. They also don't want to give the impression that they're overly made up, especially in professional or formal settings where they need to look clean and almost bare-faced. Hence, the "no makeup makeup" was born.

I think that the Cover Girl Eye Enhancers in Country Woods were designed with that look in mind!

This palette has four neutral eyeshadows that are decently pigmented for a drugstore brand. The eyeshadows won't really show up brightly though. That just give the eyes the subtlest hint of glimmer and contour, improving their shape and color, without giving many clues that they're actually there. Pretty neat if you ask me.

What I like about the product

  • Nice pigmentation. Won't blow your mind away, but it works.
  • Colors really bring out the eyes without looking obvious. They look good on fair to medium skintones.

Cover Girl Lip Perfection Lipliner

You've already read my review of the wonderful Lip Perfection Lipsticks, so now get a load of the Cover Girl Lip Perfection Lipliner (P325)!

I don't normally wear lip liner because I'm lazy (hehe), but you have to admit that it's useful when you're wearing a really loud, hard-to-control color or when you want to slightly make your lips fuller. There's a ton of lip liner shades out there but the perfect color for you should be something very close to your lips. Think of it as if it were foundation - it evens out the color of skin and creates the perfect base for your makeup. 

I like the Cover Girl Lip Perfection Lipliner because it has a creamy texture, but not so creamy that it slips right off  your lips.

Cover Girl Lip Perfection Lipstick review and swatches

Lipsticks are the kind of products that drgustore brands do extremely well. True, prestige brands have amazing shades and textures, but you can easily blow P400 on a lipstick and you won't even know the difference!

One amazing lipstick line is the Cover Girl Lip Perfection (P395). It does everything a lipstick should, and beyond. Pigmentation, texture, shade selection, lasting power, and moisturizing properties are all ace - I'd say it's unbelievable for the price, but I have tried other cheap lipsticks that deliver these things well, too. The main difference of Cover Girl with the other drugstore brands is how slinky and moisturizing it is to the point that it feels like lip balm.

What I love about the product

  • Rich pigmentation that goes opaque in one or two layers (depending on the shade). 
  • Smooth, creamy texture glides on the lips. It's quite moisturizing so I suggest you skip the lip balm. Actually, you MUST skip the lip balm if you have normal lips or the lipstick will feel too slippery already.

Cover Girl launches the Lip Perfection Lipstick

I have a confession to make. It's quite embarrassing, actually, but here we go: I have never used Cover Girl cosmetics before. There! It's out! How can I be alive for 23 years without using Cover Girl? I don't know!

I'm glad that there's a first time for everything because the first time is always the sweetest. ;) When Cover Girl launched its latest innovation called the Lip Perfection Lipstick, I knew that there was a love affair just waiting to happen. The lipsticks are AMAZING. I am thoroughly impressed. I'll write about the lipsticks in a separate post (hopefully today!) but for the meantime, I just want to share what happened during the launch (plus previews of my Cover Girl haul).

Makeup + macarons = always a winner combination!

FOTD: Timeless

I went to the office yesterday so, again, I wore a neutral look. Actually I just really wanted to play with my new toy, the Bobbi Brown Tortoise Shell Palette in Sand. Will write a full review on it soon! Off the bat though, I find the palette gorgeous when it comes to the unique packaging and the timeless shade selection. Bobbi makes the best neutral eyeshadows; they never look like makeup, instead melting and blending into the skin as if they've always been there.

I also wore my new favorite foundation, the Clinique Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF15/PA+++. Other than concealer, I didn't use any other face product - no silicon base, illuminators, or finishing powders yet the finish is absolutely fantastic! I didn't edit my photo here except for a retouch of the eye bags (my eyes are SUPER puffy lately due to late nights), so you wouldn't believe that I have several dark, big acne scars underneath.

Ahh, the power of opaque concealer and a glowy foundation.
