However, I’m really crazy about Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara. I normally use a Mabelline product and was fairly happy with that mascara. But, after trying Lash Blast, I’ll stick with it! The cool (albeit not-environmentally-friendly) packaging and newly-designed wand look snazzy and shapely. The mascara goes on easily and is not too sticky, dry or clumpy. It covers both my top and bottom lashes well and really does separate and make them look longer – just like the marketing information promises. I’ve used it for about 2 weeks now and am very happy with the results.
And, as an added bonus, having Drew Barrymore as the Lash Blast spokes-person doesn’t hurt either! I’m a big fan of hers and Cover Girl has done a great job making her look smokey, sexy and stylish in the ads.

This month Cover Girl launches the new look and updated colour palette of Outlast All-Day Lipcolour. Pat McGrath, world renowned make-up artist and Global Creative Design Director for P&G Beauty, assisted in the design of the latest 23 shades – taking her inspiration from fashion textiles art and theatre. She also helped to organize the full palette into six shade families: Pinks & Roses, Mauves & Berries, Corals & Reds,Naturals & Nudes, Browns & Spices and Burgundies & Wines.
Newly infused with botanicals, each lipcolour offers an improved, higher chroma shade range for brighter, more noticeable lips. What I really like is that my colour lasts for up to 16 hours without leaving my lips dry and flakey. The improved top coat keeps my lips soft with shea and cocoa butters and Vitamin E – it evens tastes like vanilla – yum!

New Year’s Eve is always a fun time. I love getting all fancied up in a little black dress and really taking time with my makeup and hair. This year New Year’s Eve falls on a Monday night! For most people we will be working and then off to our dinners or parties straight after work. That puts a bit of a damper on taking multiple hours to get ready.
Well my pals at Cover Girl think of everything and provided me with everything I need to look fashionably festive in minutes! The snow-kissed Cover Girl “Party Ready” Holiday Package was designed with busy holiday schedules in mind and contains products that help with quick touch-ups for on-the-go make-up application.
Advanced Radiance Age-Defying Concealer
Eye Enhancers Cream Shadow Kit
LineExact Liquid Liner Pen in Smoke
Volume Exact Mascara in Very Black
Outlast Double Lipshine in Plum Pearl
Outlash Pressed Powder in Translucent Light
Boundless Color Nail Polish in City Lights
Paul Venoit, the Cover Girl Makeup Pro, (whom I absolutely adore) has provided me with easy party prep tips so that I cannot make a mistake…
Freshen up with a quick touch of concealer to help neutralize redness and conceal imperfections. Don’t forget to tidy up the under eye area to brighten up the look of the eyes and make them really stand out.
Whisk away excess oil with a light dusting of powder.
Eyeliner is a quick way to create instant drama. Rim the upper lash line with LineExact Liquid Liner pen in Smoke. For a more intense look, blend with shadow.
Limited-edition Cover Girl Eye Enhancers Cream Shadow Kits are a must-have for your make-up bag this holiday season. Use the lighter tones for the inner corner of the eye and under the brow .
Apply mascara to top and bottom lashes.
No look is complete without sexy shimmery lips for any party.
I think I am set. I’ll just paint my finger nails with a sparkly polish and off I go!
