Cover Girl Blast Review & Giveaway

I have been a member of BzzAgent for several years now after hearing about it from my sister-in-law.  For those of you unfamiliar with BzzAgent, it is a WOM (word-of-mouth) marketing network.  After signing up (it's free), they will alert you when they have new campaigns that you might be interested in.  I have recieved free products to try and share and coupons.  If you like trying new products for free and telling your friends and family about them, then this is something that may be of interest to you.  What is the catch?  There is none. All you have to do before the end of the campaign is log into your account at the Bzzagent website and fill out at least two reports about your opinion of the product, who you talked to, what you said, and how they responded.  In return, you get MyPoints which you can redeem for gift cards from your favorite retailers.

I was recently sent a box of goodies to have a CoverGirl Blast Party.  I invited friends over for some good converation, yummy food, and a chance to try the new line of CoverGirl cosmetics.  Even though there was a snowstorm on the horizon and a few friends cancelled, several of us still got together for a "Mommy's Night Out". 

Here is what came in my CoverGirl Blast Kit Box:


We had a good time.  I told everyone about the makeup and showed them the colors.  Everyone got to take a Shineblast Lip Gloss and a SmokyShadowBlast with them.  Our little party broke up early due to the threat of snow but a good time was had by all.  Some food, wine, and makeup (did I mention no kids) all made for a great evening.

What did I like about the makeup?


I am not usually a fan of lip gloss but I would use this again.  I hate really shiny lips and I was worried about the "4x more noticeable shine" but there was no need to worry. The lip gloss in my opinion had just the right amount of shine.  The lip gloss comes in sixteen colors.  I tried number 815 called Heat.  It had just a hint of color and I really liked the shine it left on my lips.  I have to confess I also liked the smell of the lip gloss.  It had a hint of a watermelon scent to it.  The make-up artist inspired applicator made applying the lip gloss incredibly easy.  



 

The shadow stick includes two color combinations.  One color has a rounded end for shading the eye lid while the other has a tapered end, perfect for lining the crease of your eye and your eye lids.  I loved the colors which are perfect for spring.  I am not a big fan of powders so this was a great product for me to try.  I would note that I did not twist out as much of the stick as they show in the pictures above.  I can see it breaking if you would press to hard.  The shadow stick was super easy to use and it gave expert looking results without much effort.  It also doesn't take up much room in your purse. The sticks are also hypo-allergenic, so even if you have sensitive eyes, you can still enjoy these shades.

Cover Girl ShadowBlast and ShineBlast can be found wherever CoverGirl products are sold.  The ShadowBlast retails for about $7.99 and the ShineBlast retails for around $7.49.  You can probably find them cheaper though with some competitve shopping or coupons.  You can also enter to win your own CoverGirl ShineBlast and ShadowBlast products to share with a friend!

THANK you so much for posting this! I actually joined BzzAgent a few weeks ago, but was kind of skeptical about it, as I don't know anyone who has done it. WOW! That looks like such a fun way to get together with your girlfriends & do a review. I love reviews :) Thank you so much for visiting my blog the other day... just now getting back to everybody. I am subscribing to you!
