FIRST LOOK: Get Glam (for cheap!) With These New Products From CoverGirl

As you know Glamazons, I am the queen of eyeliner (oh and lipgloss, too). I first read about the CoverGirl LiquiLineBlast Eye Liner in the latest issue of Allure magazine because makeup guru Pat McGrath used it backstage overseas for Fashion Week. (And, of course, you know that she's the one that helped to create the actual product. She's so smart, that Pat McGrath!) I immediately zeroed in on it and (just like a drug addict) schemed of ways to get my hands on it before it hits stores next month. Luckily, the lovely PR team at CoverGirl decided to hold a fun blogger event with their celebrity makeup artist, Molly Stern and I was invited. And what did I notice when I first sat down but these amazing eyeliners?! I was like a kid in a candy store. Molly (who confessed that she's new to the Twitterverse so you should totally click here to follow her) walked us through some of the newest launches from CoverGirl and gave us tips on how to use them. The first great product that we were introduced to was the CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Serum Primer. It's like the best of my two skincare faves! I first tested it on my hand and it felt so silky smooth that I was soon smearing it all over my face.

Here's how it works: the Olay Regenerist serum portion of it contains an Amino-Peptide Complex to improve skin texture and glycerin to hydrate and help firm skin's appearance. Overall, it helps to improve skin's exfoliation rate to reveal new skin over time, so you can kiss that dull look good bye! It lasts up to 8 hours (ie all-day wear) is suitable for sensitive skin and won't clog pores. The best part? It's only $13.99! All that beautific greatness in a bottle for less than $20.
After applying the primer, we put on foundation. I must say that I'm not usually a fan of drugstore foundation, but I loved the way the CoverGirl Simply Ageless Foundation glided across my skin upon application and didn't look like it was pasted on my face. (It also doesn't hurt that it contains Olay Regenerist Serum and SPF 22...perf for summer!)

But the best part was the eye makeup. As you know from watching my video about my makeup bag staples, I'm a huge fan of the CoverGirl Smoky ShadowBlast Stick in Onyx Smoke, so I applied that first. I then chose to glide the LiquiLineBlast Eye Liner in Blue Bloom around my eyes (that's a pic of me applying it above) and smudged with the little smudger tip at the end. Um, can we say easy eye makeup look created in just two seconds?! If you're deathly afraid of liquid eyeliner, this would be a great product for you to try. It contains a special blend of waxes and goes on smooth, is water-proof (but you won't have to scrub your eye out trying to get it off at the end of the day) and comes in six vibrant shades: Black Fire; Brown Blaze; Violet Voltage; Silver Spark; Blue Bloom; and Green Glow. And, once again, super cheap for only $7.99.

The CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Serum Primer and LiquiLine Blast Eye Liners will hit drugstores next month (July) so be sure to let me know what you think after you get your hands on 'em.
