3 Amazing New CoverGirl Makeup Products

New covergirl makeup products

Everyone has their go-to drugstore brand, and CoverGirl is one of mine. CoverGirl is one of those brands that is always reliable – hello, LashBlast mascara, anyone? – and the company recently released several products that have quickly made their way into my everyday makeup bag.

Two weeks ago, I discussed the TruMagic mattifying compact, which is definitely an amazing product, and today I’m going to be discussing three more new CoverGirl products that I love. Read on to learn more about each one:

Bombshell Intensity Eye Liner

Most drugstore liquid eye liners are that kind with the blunt tip, and we all know those dry out quickly and don’t work well 100% of the time. I was expecting the same thing with this Bombshell liner, but was so surprised when I opened it! It’s similar to a felt-tip marker, plus the eyeliner itself is ultra-pigmented and long-lasting.

This product is marketed to last 24 hours, but I haven’t worn it that long, so I’m not sure if that’s true. However, I do know that it lasts an upwards of 8 hours, which is definitely long enough for me. Also, I have to admit, I’m a sucker for anything called “bombshell” – it’s what drew me to this product in the first place! I think CoverGirl hit a home run with this one.

LipPerfection Lipcolor

$6.99 at Ulta

These LipPerfection lipsticks are one of the best drugstore lipsticks, and the color pictured above made them even better! This shade is called “Seduce”, and is simply the most on-trend red color I’ve seen this season.

Although the LipPerfection line is nothing new, CoverGirl recently released a collection of “Bombshell” colors within the line, and all four bold and bright shades definitely live up to their name. The packaging is also so beautiful, which is different for the brand. CoverGirl isn’t always known for their sophisticated packaging, but these lipstick tubes truly mimic the look of an expensive department store brand.

Bombshell ShineShadow

I. Love. These. The new Bombshell (again!) ShineShadows are light, creamy, and beautiful. They glide on your eyes and last all day and night.

These shadows boast a metallic and glittery finish, but if applied lightly, they look so subtle. These colors can also be layered for a bolder look, which is perfect for a night out. Since the tube is relatively small, these ShineShadows are a little pricey, but each one will last you for a very long time.

What do you think?

    Posts like these are really kind of worthless. I’m all for hearing about new drugstore products, but at least make it sound like your not fishing for promotion money or goodies (or have already been paid).

    Nat – Sorry this post wasn’t to your taste! We’ll keep your feedback in mind for next time. However, it’s worth noting that CoverGirl was not involved with this in any way and I highly doubt they keep up with our blog. We always give our honest opinions about products and – in the rare case of a sponsored post/free product – disclose it very conspicuously in the post (e.g. titling the post “Sponsored:”). No shady marketing tricks here, ever.

    Nat – To comment on what Zephyr said, I genuinely enjoy these products and want to share them with the world. I try to balance my posts between high end and drugstore and I know a lot of college-age girls LOVE CoverGirl (like myself!). I will definitely keep your comments in mind for next week.

    i actually really like these posts because I know nothing about makeup and it’s nice to see what new and/or noteworthy products are out there (both drugstore brands and high-end brands) since I don’t go shopping for makeup often.

    I’m really into that eye liner too!

    Looks like a great product but after a long day/night, do it start to clog in the creases? Also, is it extremely difficult to take off before bed?

    Love the lipstick! I’m always searching for the elusive, perfect red- I’ll be getting that asap.
    Also, I personally love the makeup reviews from the viewpoint of a peer, and enjoy these posts.

    However, I was wondering if you would do a post on a makeup brand that doesn’t test on animals? (Or makeup from various brands that don’t test on animals). I love Covergirl, but that is one downside to their products.

    Sending good vibes your way!

    Hello girls!

    Ashley – It doesn’t! I think you’re referring to the Shine Shadow, so to answer your questions it pretty much wears like a primer. It doesn’t crease and it comes off super easy, kind of similar to wiping off a regular cream blush or shadow! I hope that answers your questions :)

    Jess – Thank you for reading and thanks for your kind thoughts! I can definitely do a post on brands that don’t test on animals, that’s an amazing idea. Look out for that post in the next few weeks!

    Thank you all for reading! xoxo

    I appreciate your replies. It just always raises red flags when someone gushes over products as if they have no drawbacks whatsoever. That’s pretty rare in a product, and especially in three. A more balanced approach would be great in the future.
