Covergirl NEW TruBlend Undercover Concealer and MORE!

Thursday, August 8, 2019

As a busy mommy of twins, concealer is one of my most reached for makeup products.  And listen, concealing my under eye circles is no easy feat!  Many have tried and failed and only a very select few have made the cut.  In fact, the two holy grail concealers currently in my stash (not drugstore btw) better make room for their new BFF!  There are so many things i love about the new Covergirl TruBlend Undercover Concealer! First, i love the applicator because the wand makes it super easy to swipe and blend!  The formula is velvety smooth and matte which keeps things perfectly in place.  It blends seamlessly giving you the look of a  'full night sleep' even when you tossed and turned for most of the night!  With this powerhouse at your side, no one will ever know! Now let's chat longevity!  This concealer stayed put for HOURS!  I didn't wash my face until 11:30 pm last night and quite honestly, all was still perfectly in tact!  This is the first time i've had such a great experience with a drugstore concealer which is why i'm excited to shout it out here to my beauty BFFs!  I always spend quite a bit on concealer and am so excited to share that if you're a budget, this is the product for you! (ps... my shade is L900).

Ok now on to the finished look!  I played with some more Covergirl products (some i already owned and a few new to me)! First, i used Covergirl's TruBlend Matte Made Foundation I tried this for the first time when it launched and fell instantly in love!  I had so many of you reaching out to let me know how much you loved it too.  It's a medium to full coverage matte foundation that has major lasting power.  As far as drugstore is concerned, this is easily my favorite!  My shade is L50.

One of my favorite products to try from this Covergirl mailing was the TruBlend Super Stunner Highlighter!  Oh my GOSH it's so good!!!!  In fact, i opted to wear all three shades not only as highlighter but as eyeshadow!  I swept a combination of all three shades on my lids keep the lightest shade on my inner corners for a subtle brightening effect. There are three shades available (Pearl Crush, Rose Quartz and Gilded Glory) and i honestly could not decide which i love more!  They're so so beautiful and add such a gorgeous glow!

I set everything in place with Covergirl Trublend Minerals powder.  Also tried the Easy Breezy Brow Gel to comb my brows in place.  I didn't want super structured brows and love a good brow gel to sort of comb and shape in a natural way.  This stuff stays put so work quick before it sets.

Lastly, there are a few non Cover Girl products i used to complete the look!  I'm obsessed with this Tarte face palette for cheeks.  Also, now that my lash extensions are off, i was stoked to finally try the new Tarte Big Ego mascara and wow it did not disappoint!  BTW if you subscribe to BoxyCharm you may see this beauty in there (full size too baby)!

For lips, i reached for Steve Laurant's nude lip liner in Chic (also in this month's BoxyCharm), then i swept Christian Audette's Johanna lippie (the perfect nude created in collaboration with the gorgeous Beauty Professor), topped with Tarte's Busy Gal Gloss in 9-5!

 OK so this is the full look!  Major love for all the products working seamlessly on my face! Thank you Covergirl for introducing me to my new favorite drugstore concealer and highlighters which have officially earned prime real estate in my rotating makeup stash!  Also, guys my lashes..... uhhhh Tarte, this mascara is SOLID!

Thank you so much for reading!  Please know that while some of these products were sent for PR consideration, as always these are my true opinions based on my experience with the products sent as well as those i've purchased myself.  Xo, Carla
