For some reason, CoverGirl is a drugstore line I’m not super familiar with, but I recently got a chance to try out CoverGirl’s new ShineBlast Lip Gloss, and based on this product alone, I should definitely check out more of the line! This is the newest addition to CoverGirl’s “Blast” line. The gloss was developed by Pat McGrath, the famous British makeup artist who has been called the most influential makeup artist in the world by Vogue! Not bad, right?
The ShineBlast glosses are not highly pigmented, instead they leave your lips with a shiny, shear wash of color. The gloss isn’t sticky or thick, instead it’s more like a moisturizing balm, but the look is very glossy. It has majorly high shine thanks to the little luminescent droplets ofpearlized pigment in the gloss, which leaves a nice shimmer to your lips. But it’s not overpowering; these are definitely glosses that are perfect for day wear. The applicators are really nice too, kind of angled, wide and flat at the tip. You will see what I mean when you try them–much nicer than the typical sponge applicator.
And something that I really love about these–the scent is very girly and fruity. They reminded me of lip glosses I collected as a kid. Loved it! They come in 16 high-shine shades and will be available at mass-market retail stores nationwide beginning in January 2010. These are must haves! You’re totally going to want these in your purse, at your desk, in your car… Price: $8.49
