COVERGIRL LashPerfection™ {product review} and a GIVE-AWAY!


;


Recently I had the wonderful opportunity of reviewing a great new product, COVERGIRL LashPerfection™.
Before I tell you all about how awesome this new mascara is let me tell you a couple little things about me.
I AM SHY!
I HATE BEING IN FRONT OF PEOPLE!
BUT! I REALIZE THAT SOMETIMES I NEED TO DO THESE THINGS!
Okay, so you know that I'm shy and I hate being in front of people, what helps me build confidence in myself. Well, honestly there are a few factors that have gone into helping me build confidence and not be so dang shy, but a big one for sure is great make up. I don't love every little wrinkle, I don't love every little eyelash but when I can use fantastic make up to enhance the good things my confidence is totally built up and it isn't quite as hard for me to present a trunk show or share one of my new quilts.
One big moment in my life that fantastic make up really helped me was this past spring when I presented for the new Moda Bake Shop Book at spring Quilt Market!
So onto this great mascara!




MSRP $5.99
It comes in Very Black, Black, Black/Brown and Brown.
in the pictures below I used the Black/Brown, I've always been a straight-up black mascara user but I really am happy with this Black/Brown color.




This picture above is me with NO mascara on. BLAH, I would never go in public like this, seriously!

In this picture I am wearing the COVERGIRL LashPerfection™" and I love it, I love that it doesn't clump as much as the mascara that I was using before!



I think that's because it has an awesome brush, the bristles are smaller than what I had been using so they seem to coat the lashes better while not clumping as much.
Over all a great product!

  3. I started wearing contacts and noticed that I probably should be doing something with my eyebrows. At age 33, I started to powder my eyebrows and I got compliments on my new "look" w/o really doing anything grand. I noticed it frames my face so maybe I'll snag a guy. lol

  4. I don't know if I've ever used makeup to add confidence (power from within ladies!), but I do love having long,dark sexy lashes to flash "the look" at my super cute hubs!

  5. I don't wear make up everyday, but when I wear mascara, I always feel more put together. I definitely put it on when I have a meeting at work.

  8. I am in a band. I lOVE to sing and play, but I really don't like to be the center of attention! For gigs I like to go all out and use fun colours, bold products, and go all out! (on a normal day I am without makeup and in comfy clothes!) You know sometimes when you dress the part (make-up included) you feel the part!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I don't think I have ever used make up for a confidence builder. I barely wear it at all, but I do like mascara. I like to put it on for Church and choir, but mostly to flirt with my hubby.
    This sounds like something I would like to try. Covergirl Lash Perfection will go on my shopping list.

  10. I don't feel completely dressed without makeup. It makes me feel more confident.

  11. Makeup makes me feel more confident on a daily basis! I usually don't use much, but a little powder, some blush, and mascara work wonders for making you look put together. For big events, I definitely use foundation, eyeliner, etc. to look extra sassy! :P

    ReplyDelete
  12. I need to use makeup to cover an unsightly birthmark, especially necessary when I have to present something and want people to listen to what I have to say and not listen because they are staring at my face.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Makeup is so fun and it recently gave me the confidence I needed to attend my husbands graduation and feel great!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Now that I'm not working, I don't wear make-up everyday. So when going out for a special occassion or family function I "put my face on". I do feel more confident and put together when I do.

    Thank you for the giveaway and chance to win.

  15. Um, how about every day of my life! Mascara—Cover Girl, specifically—is an absolute necessity in my life. I have strawberry blonde hair and pale, pale skin and blonde eyelashes that look non-existent without the miracle of mascara. And I will say that I've tried every brand on the planet, and except for a Mary Kay one that has been discontinued, Cover Girl wins!

  16. What would we do without makeup ! I have short light colored lashes , so I'm in for trying this ! thanks for the review !

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ahhh...I don't leave the house without makeup. I love knowing how it makes me feel pretty. But love the example of the mascara. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  18. I don't wear makeup too much anymore, but my son just got married, so I made sure I wore it that day!

  24. Every time I need to go into an important meeting or appointment (especially when I know it will be stressful) I put on full make-up. Having a well-made-up face can intimidate and convey a more professional appearance.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I’m not a make up person and usually don’t wear any or have very light make ups on. When I attend my husband’s company dinner, I wanted to look my best for him and I put full make up on and I sure felt great and more confidence meeting his colleges for the first time. We both had a wonderful evening at the event.

  26. for my wedding! I knew that 100 pairs of eyes would be watching me during the entire ceremony and I hate being the center of attention, so I had my make up and hair professionally done so I looked and felt great, and it wasn't so bad after all :)

  33. I wear very light makeup daily (tinted moisturizer and little bit of blush). It makes me feel confident and pretty. The makeup on my wedding day was fabulously gorgeous and got lots of compliments.

  35. I love wearing mascara. It always makes me feel confident. In fact I get compliments on my lashes because they are long and look great with mascara. Mascara has always been the one piece of make-up I always wear. I think I picked it up from my mom. She loves wearing mascara.

  41. I was never comfortable wearing make-up. It always me feel conspicuous, and as a country girl, I shied away from it.

    ReplyDelete

  59. A quick twirl of Mascara and a moderate swipe of blush helped me feel confident enough to make an amazing maid of honor speech for my best friend. :) I always thought I would grow out of my fear of talking to a big crowd, but nope same ol fear, but making sure my make up is just so and that I don't look half bad, sure helps :O)

    thanks for the opportunity! :)

  65. I had my makeup professionally done for my wedding and it helped make my day brighter and, since I cried all the way down the isle, I am glad they used waterproof makeup! LOL I knew I would cry a lot during the wedding, so that was one less thing to worry about!

  75. After returning to the country from one year in Europe, I had to look for a job. I hadn't worn make up while overseas but I decided to put on my professional face and head with confidence into those job interviews. I was lucky enough to find a temporary placement that lead to a permanent job in my field.
