NEED: CoverGirl TruBlend Primer

I won't lie to you, I gave up on drugstore primers a few years ago. I can't even tell you the amount of brands that I've used and they have never compared to the ones that I get from Sephora. 
They have all left me super oily and really disappointed.

I was sent CoverGirl TruBlend Primer ($12.00 CAN) and literally I didn't pay that much attention to it. I was packing overnight bag a few weeks ago and then I realized that I couldn't find my usual primers. I was honestly freaking OUT! Since I knew where CoverGirl one was, I took it with me not really thinking that it was going to do much. 
I was surprised. 

Cover Girl: Katy Kat Matte Lipstick Swatches

I have always been a fan of Katy Perry style. She's unapologetic and not afraid to step outside of the box. I was really excited when Cover Girl tweeted that they would be doing a one-of-a-kind make up line with her: Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks ($11 CDN). I was even more excited when the whole collection showed up at my door.

COVERGIRL Ready Set Gorgeous Liquid Foundation

Here is another foundation to add to your list for women of colour. 

We all know how hard it is to find a foundation that is not to "red" or not "too muddy". I  found one which can be found in your local drugstore. I should let you guys know that this is not a review. I just wanted to put this out there for any looking for something affordable to try.

If you're looking for a medium coverage to full coverage foundation that is oil-free 
try Covergirl's Ready Set Gorgeous ($7.99 CAN)! 
This liquid foundation's oil-free formula provides medium coverage to even skin tone and cover imperfections. The result is a flawless, natural look that lasts all day.

Apparently this foundation has a built-in powder system to fight shine and sweat.

For me 315 was too light and 320 was too dark so I mixed 
them both to get a custom colour.

My Favourite S/S’14 makeup look

As most of you all know, I'm apart of P&G #BeautyUnited. This month, we were given a very unique challenge. Pick a favourite S/S’14 Looking Glass look from here: Then do a DIY of your fave S/S’14 look!

We were given a Walmart gift card to get all the COVERGIRL, Pantene and Olay beauty products needed to complete the  look.

I choose a look called PLAIT PLEASE.
**I have braids in- so I couldn't complete the hair component but it didn't stop me from doing the makeup portion**

I loved the golden/bronze eyes combo with the pink lips. Perfect look to recreate on my skin tone. 
Plus the gloss is onboard with the latest spring trends.

Covergirl Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara

Calling all girls who cocktail their mascara! Covergirl has a new mascara on the shelves which you may be interested in. It's called bombshell volume by lastblast mascara ($10.99 CDN)!

Flaunt the next big thing in lashes with Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara! The brilliant two-step Bombshell Boost System combines extreme volume with an intensifying top coat for big, sexy bombshell lashes. 

Step One: Apply the extreme volume basecoat. 
Step Two: Finish with the intensifying top coat.

I am the queen of cocktailing mascaras. I find that one mascara is not always enough. I like to experiment with different brushes and formulas.

First off, I will admit it's pretty big.. but it really beats carrying around two mascaras.

My number one rule is wait until the first mascara dries before
you add your second coat. This ensures that it doesn't clump together.

If you are new to the idea of cocktailing mascara- don't be nervous. It's pretty easy because there's a big number one and two showing you which mascara to put on first. If you're a rebel like me- you can start with number two and finish off with number one. It all depends on what you would like.

This summer Covergirl wants you to unleash your inner Beauty Rebel.

I automatically gravitated towards the new mascaras! Mascara will always be one of my weakness.
I can have five bottles open at one time. A different lash look for every occasion.
Both of these are very unique but get the job done.

Flamed Out Mascara ($9.99 CDN)
Make a bold statement with winged lashes that curve up and out. The unique wire brush coats your lashes for an instant volume boost.
If you're going for all over volume, I'd definitely recommend this mascara. You can also build more volume by letting it fully dry in-between coats. In my opinion, if you have time to play with your lashes this wire brush is awesome for getting the look that you want to achieve.

Clump Crusher Mascara by Lashblast (10.99 CDN)
A breakthrough in no-clump mascara. Get 200% more volume and zero clumps. Features an innovative double-sided brush with lash-loading and clump-combing zones to crush clumps.
This mascara is definitely for definition. I got more of a natural lash look when using it. This is the perfect mascara to use when you're in a rush because you do not have to worry about separating your eyelashes. Plus I love the curved rubber wand.
