Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that Star Wars Episode 75050437 (ok, ok, it’s called “Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens“) hits theaters this week. I remember being super excited when “The Empire Strikes Back” hit theaters when I was a kid. I love all the Star Wars franchise but over the years, I’ve become less excited about the actual movies and more about the marketing and branded merchandise for them. I’m a beauty lover, so I’ve been especially excited about CoverGirl’s Star Wars collection. Any excuse to try new makeup is a good one, right?! And as a self-proclaimed lipstick addict, I was particularly excited to try these CoverGirl Star Wars Limited Edition Colorlicious Lipsticks in six cool colors.
Inspired by the “Light Side” and the “Dark Side” of The Force (Star Wars reference, of course), the lipsticks come in intergalactic shades like silver metallic, a shimmery lilac and an equally shimmery nude, a deep red, an even deeper burgundy and an orange-y gold. CoverGirl lipsticks have never disappointed me so I had high expectations. And these all fit the bill. The shimmery, metallic lipsticks were shiny and smooth and could be easily paired with another lipstick underneath. The Silver #10, when applied, needed more coats than the others, but still I loved the finished look. The two deeper hues (Red 30 and Dark Purple 50) went on STRONG and left a surprise lip stain after wiping them off. The Dark Purple color left a fun bright pink stain on my lips, so it really felt like I was getting two lipsticks in one!
