Easy 3 Step Covergirl Makeup Look + P&G Most Loved Giveaway!

Press Sample

P&G is a pretty well known company, but many of you may not know just how many of your favourite brands are a part of the P&G family. She Speaks and P&G were kind enough to send me a huge box full of their 'Most Loved' products to try out, including these three from Covergirl:

1. LashBlast Volume Mascara 2. Perfect Point Pencil Eyeliner 3. Outlast Double Lipshine

I used these three products to do a simple natural makeup look.

  1. Line upper lashline with the Perfect Point Pencil Eyeliner in Espresso and use the sponge end to smudge and blend outwards.
  2. Apply 2 coats of LashBlast Volume Mascara in Black to both upper and lower lashes.
  3. Apply the Outlast Double Lipshine in Sheerly Nude, first the colour and once it's set, the gloss on top.

I really liked all three of these Covergirl products! Here's a mini review of them all.

Lashblast Volume Mascara: The brush is big, but because it has so many different sized bristles it catches all the little lashes that some bigger brushes miss. The formula is creamy, and builds up without clumping or flaking. I used 2 coats and the volume was quite nice and full. It also lengthens decently, although it's not specifically for lengthening.  This one isn't waterproof, but they do make a waterproof formula if you prefer.

Perfect Point Pencil Eyeliner: This is a self sharpening liner, which I like, although it means you wont get a super thin, precise line. The formula is very smooth, doesn't tug at all and blends beautifully with the sponge end of the liner. I love that they included a sponge for blending/smudging!

Outlast Double Lipshine: This is basically a lipstain, with a gloss to put on top. The colour sets to a matte finish and lasts quite a while, fading minimally through eating and drinking. I did notice it can flake slightly and settle into lines once the gloss wears off, but if you reapply the gloss it looks fine.

I will definitely be keeping these in my makeup stash to use again :)

I also received a bunch of other P&G stuff including some Gillette men's products, which I have so generously gifted to my husband. Whether he will use them or not is another story, it was difficult enough to get him to stop washing his face with soap.

Plus all of these P&G goodies!

I was most excited about the laundry stuff  =_=;;  #dathousewifelife. I love Tide so much. I'm almost tempted to purposely spill something just so I can try out the To Go stain remover pen.
