COVERGIRL has a TON of products that I consistently reach for. And, since I find myself using the CG brand more than any other drugstore brand for my fresh-faced, warm-weather-friendly look, I decided to share my favorites with you all! Some are my tried-and-true and some are new favorites. The best part is these are all quality products that are priced affordably. Meaning, I don't have to pick one favorite over the other. I can get them all! Enjoy!
Clean Matte BB Cream - This BB cream! It's a little bit of a new favorite but I have been using it for many months. I just recently realized it has become my go-to foundation. I like the finish on it. It's not super matte but it also doesn't appear greasy on my skin like most BB/CC creams do. It has a nice, natural finish, medium coverage, and it doesn't break out or irritate my skin. It also doesn't oxidize into that awful orangey color like many products do when my skin is on the fairer side shade-wise.
Outlast All-Day Matte Finishing Powder - I don't often use powder. So, I don't like to spend a lot on a product that is most likely going to expire before I have a chance to use all of it. BUT I do like to have powder on hand for touch-ups on those super humid Florida days. Just to chase away the shine. And this product does just that and has more staying power than comparable products I've tried.
TRUBLEND FIXSTICK Eye Concealer - This concealer has become a tried-and-true. It's quick and easy to apply and I don't have to do much blending to get the product to look natural on my skin. Great for any busy-bee looking to apply and go.
Outlast All-Day Soft Touch Concealer - New favorite alert! I use this guy when I'm looking for something a little bit more long-wearing than the fixstick. It conceals well without being cakey or chalky. It goes on smooth and stays that way! Again, a natural finish is key in getting that "natural beauty" look.
TRUBLEND Blush (in Medium Rose) - This is THE ONLY drugstore powdered blush I use. I just have not been able to find another that has the pigment, quality, and lasting power that this one does. Before I found this blush, I only used one by MAC Cosmetics. It was the only one I loved. I have now switched from the MAC blush as my daily go-to to this one.
Colorlicious Oh Sugar! Vitamin Infused Balm - I know I have talked about this lip balm numerous times before. And, yes, I've tried many, many lip products since being introduced to this one. And Oh Sugar! is still at the top of my list of lippy favorites. It's moisturizing, doesn't settle in the lines of your lips, and gives a beautiful touch of color- More than you'd expect from a balm. My favorite shade is a mauvy-pink called Taffy.
Full Lash Bloom Mascara - Ok. So yes, I have three mascaras listed. Because...well, because I like eye makeup the most. Out of the three I have listed, this one is my favorite. It's a tried-and-true so it's earned my trust. When I'm in a rush, this mascara is the one I reach for. It's a zero-mess, throw it on, and run out the door type of product. I've heard others say they had to adjust to the feel of the brush but I didn't have a huge problem with it. Yes, it feels different than a typical bristle brush. But I like it. It feels like it's getting every single lash the first time. For me, it feels satisfyingly effective.
So Lashy! Blastpro Mascara - This is COVERGIRL's new, hot mascara. And, obviously, I like it! For me, THIS wand took a little getting used to. I expected as much, however. Since the wand is completely different than anything I've ever used. If you're looking for a dramatic eye, this mascara is your friend. It doesn't look clumpy or give you spider lashes. It just provides a lot of volume without a lot of fuss. All good in my book.
Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara - Let's end on a classic note, shall we? This mascara isn't new and it isn't fancy. But it does just what it says it will. I find it comparable to (the much more expensive) Volumizing Mascara by Mally Beauty. Full lashes, classic bristle wand, and less expensive than other drugstore mascaras. I have repurchased this one so many times I've lost count.
