Covergirl is quickly turning into one of my favorite drugstore brands. To be completely honest, a few years ago I stayed away from the brand because I really disliked their products. The textures, consistencies and overall feel of the brand was not something I was into. But over the last year or so, Covergirl put a spin on their products and look, and now it’s my first stop at Walgreens.

It sounds like they are amping up their brand again for 2016, so I cannot wait to see what they come up with!

I recently received two new Covergirl products to try, courtesy of Influenster: Plumpify blastPro mascara and Oh Sugar! lip balm in Taffy. I haven’t tried the mascara yet, but I have been wearing Oh Sugar! over the last several days.

Oh Sugar! is a tinted lip balm infused with vitamins C & E, grapeseed oil and avocado butter to keep lips moisturized and smooth. It comes in 10 transparent shades, and you can apply multiple layers for a slightly deeper color. They are scented, but smell like delicious sweet candy. This fits perfectly with my sweet tooth. =P

Taffy is a slightly deeper color than the tube implies. It looks more raspberry than pink, but it is very sheer, like I mention above. I was quite happy to open my tube and see it wasn’t a cotton candy pink! This shade fits better with my tan skin. One or two swipes and I get a very faint wash of color. Three or four and I get a slightly more pronounced look. It does keep my lips moisturized and feels lightweight, but nourishing at the same time.

I was bummed that my lip balm was smooshed at the top when I opened it, but sooner or later, I would have done the same to it. So I guess it looked into my future and came pre-smooshed for me. LOL!

This has been my go-to lip balm for the past several days. Because it is so transparent, I can quickly apply a swipe or 2 without a mirror. I also like to apply this under my lipstick to keep my lips moisturized and boost my lip color a little. Using several swipes under a rose-gold lipgloss produces an amazing color! I really want to purchase a few other shades of Oh Sugar!, like Gumdrop, Cupcake and Jelly.

Thanks to Covergirl and Influenster for sending this baby my way. You can find out more about Influenster and sign up at this link.
