21 May Makeup Review, Before/After Comparison Photos, Swatches: COVERGIRL Flamed Out Mascara, CC Cream, Smoochie Lipslicks, Shadow Pots, Crayons
Easy, breezy, NEW! That was the tagline (and hashtag) at last night’s COVERGIRL Summer Beauty REMIX, which showcased the Summer 2013 release of 10 new products!
How cool are these COVERGIRLS?
Sofia and NERVO talking beauty, of course!
NERVO DJed the event with their fresh beats that kept the party pumped and loaded! Fellow COVERGIRL Sofia Vergara visited each beauty station of the event, from the Smoochies Photo Shoot to the Glosstini Salon Bar. All stations highlighting each new and fantastic COVERGIRL product.
Eyes were your first stop as you entered the COVERGIRL event space at the Flamed Out Motion Makeover. The COVERGIRL Shadow Pots and Flamed Out Shadow Crayons got your eyelids ready for more color! My eyes were gilded in gold and burnt copper shades that made me feel like the Girl On Fire!
Afterwards, I was introduced to COVERGIRL’s new Ink It! liners in Charcoal Ink and Golden Ink. The pigments were incredibly rich and they glided on easily. Not to mention they did not come off! I easily fell for the gold shade, which the makeup artist used in my tear ducts and lower lash line.

She winged out my liner to accentuate the fierce gold shadows used, which guests could choose from an assortment of eyeliner looks.
The Flamed Out Mascara did just that to your lashes! The mascara wand itself goes from round at the end, to thin, then rounds out again. It grips your lashes and really helps to extend the outer corners.
It was also easy to reach my bottom lashes, and I found myself using the tip to separate as well. This is much more of a lengthening and defining mascara that really makes your lashes extend or flame outwards!
What’s an eye look without some lip color? The Lipslicks Smoochies are sheer, balm-like gloss sticks. I gravitated towards a true red shade (220 #Text Me) that applied like a stain — the perfect lip product for summer when you want a little color with a lot of moisture!
The COVERGIRL + Olay CC Cream Eye Rehab is infused with pigments and Olay‘s serum to provide moisture to fight fine lines and wrinkles. It brightens the eye area all while concealing dark circles. It is rather light in texture and leaves a velvety finish on the delicate skin around the eye area.
COVERGIRL + OLAY CC Cream Tone Rehab Foundation instantly evens skintone, reducing the look of discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles. I picked shade 140 Natural Beige, which when I got home appears rather dark. But, there will be plenty of shades to choose from.
It definitely is moisturizing (more so than the COVERGIRL + Olay CC Cream Eye Rehab in my opinion) and will leave a semi-matte finish on your skin. It blends rather easily, but I found that you need to work quickly before it sinks into your skin.
There will also be a Clean Whipped Creme Foundation and Clean Glow Blusher in 100 Roses. The foundation is very airy and whipped in texture. It does provide high coverage and didn’t look heavy at all. I never used a whipped foundation before, and was surprised at how powder-like it appeared on my skin — good for the hot summer months, don’t you think?
The Clean Glow Blusher is a tricolor product. Use one, two or all three shades as you swirl the colors on your cheeks for a natural and flush of color.
But, my favorite product of the night had to be the COVERGIRL Outlast Brilliant Glosstinis! I picked the bright yellow shade and couldn’t believe at how shiny the finish was!
It’s the next day, haven’t applied any topcoat, and no chips! And it dried quickly as well! They are so cute with the brightest shades to choose from. I couldn’t keep my eyes off of NERVO as they were spinning records — each nail was a different color! I wanted them all!
All new COVERGIRL products will be available at mass retailers/drugstores starting in late June 2013!
