Product Review: CoverGirl Star Wars Makeup Collection


I’m pretty sure by now most of my readers know I’ve got a bit of a geek side, which means when I heard the news about the CoverGirl/Star Wars collaboration that is launching on September 4, I got pretty excited.

CoverGirl Global Creative Design Director and all-around rockstar makeup artist Pat McGrath designed six different beauty looks inspired by the Star Wars franchise, including the amazing Stormtrooper character above.

Star Wars Mascara Dynamic Shot The CoverGirl Star Wars Makeup Collection will be available online on the 4th, and then hit shelves in stores mid-September. The limited edition collection includes waterproof and regular formula SuperSizer mascaras, complete with ‘light side’ and ‘dark side’ quotes (May the Force Be With You, I Feel the Good In You, You Will Meet Your Destiny, Immune To the Light, etc.), six shades of Colorlicious lipstick and three Outlast Stay Brilliant nail polishes.






The polishes are a pearly cream named Light, a plum shade called Nemesis and a bright red called Red Revenge. Star Wars Nails_Speed of Light_Nemesis_Red Revenge
As for the lipsticks, of the colors I tested, my favorites were Red #30:


and Gold #40 (which is a metallic orange and super fun for fall makeup looks):


The Lilac #20 would also be a gorgeous shade on people with darker skintones.

So tell me–are you geeking out over this collection? Let me know when you try it out!


Peace, Love and Using the Force,

The 5 Best Butt-Busting Yoga Poses

Butt-Busting Yoga Poses

Confession time: This pregnancy is kicking my butt. As it, making it huge and saggy. It was way easier for me to stay in shape the first time around, but this time, I am having to work (hard) to stay even remotely in shape. And, since I was too nauseous the entire first half to do any kind of exercising at all, I’m having to work overtime now to fix the serious spread that has overtaken my butt, arms and hips. But mostly, my butt.

As Seen On TV: Summer Beauty Problem Solvers

You know what I love about the magic of television? Pre-taped segments! On Wednesday, I was somehow on TV in both Phoenix and Atlanta simultaneously–I get around!

In Atlanta, I was talking Summer Beauty Problem Solvers with the lovely Christine on Atlanta & Company, and it’s one of my favorite topics. I mean, if you can’t solve problems with beauty products, than what good are they?

Click through to watch the segment and get all the details on what I wore and the products I discussed.
