When Influenster reached out and offered to send me their latest parcel, I was thrilled because, as you all know, I love unboxing mystery packages! I’ve been a part of their network for quite some time now, and through them, I’ve had the opportunity to test out a variety of products. For today’s post, I’ll be reviewing three new products from Covergirl’s Queen Collection.
1. Covergirl Natural Hue Liquid Makeup ($8.79) – I hate to bash Covergirl, but I’m definitely not a fan. I personally didn’t have a very good experience! The makeup didn’t absorb well at all, and it went on super unevenly. Heads up guys, you’re getting very little coverage with this – it’s basically a tinted moisturizer – so if you want full coverage, get a different foundation. I tried Amber Glow, but it was way too red for me. Hopefully y’all will have better luck! I give this product 1.5/5.
2. Covergirl Stay Luscious Lipstick ($8.99) – I feel very “eh” about this lipstick. I had a chance to try Duchess, and although the lippie went on ok, the color just didn’t work for me. Props for its longevity though – it glided on smoothly and stayed put for most of the day. I give this baby 2.5/5 because of the price! I definitely think there are better and more affordable products out there for $9, but I’ll have to check out the rest to know for sure. I may totally be biased because of the shade!
3. False Lash Drama Mascara ($7.49) – I’m kind of starting to feel bad at this point! I really want to like this mascara…but I don’t. I had a hard time working the applicator, and at a certain point, my lashes started to clump. Then, on top of it all, I couldn’t get the right amount of curl. I give this a 2/5, and that’s me being generous! It’s available for $7 or so on the Covergirl website, but I’d rather save the cash and splurge on a solid mascara that works super well. That’s just me though! Let me know if you want a recommendation!
That’s all folks! I’m sorry I was a negative nancy for today’s post, but hey, I gotta keep it real. I’m not going to tell you that something’s awesome just because I had a chance to review it for free. However, I do want to thank Influencer for giving me the opportunity to try these items out…even if I didn’t like them, ha!
