Just over a month ago, I received a Red Carpet Beauty Bundle full of COVERGIRL makeup and a hairspray from Pantene. I was really excited because the colours that were sent to me were colours that I could see myself using…except for the lipstick LOL, but I’m willing to try!

I was so excited that I started using some of the makeup on the very 1st day. I was going to work so I chose the matte shadows- no glitter. Here’s my instagram pic from that morning:
Let’s just say that I received compliments when I got to the office
I honestly continued to wear makeup from the package until now.
Last Night, I had a special Date Night with my Hubby so I chose a bit more of a shimmery- glamorous look:
Here’s what I chose:
Although we weren’t going to a red-carpet event, we were going out to dinner and to the Opening Night of BOOM at the Segal Center, so I figured why not Glam-it-up a little 😉
I started with the primer. I then applied my trusted COVERGIRL Eye Depuffer / Concealer & a bit of powder to seal it (these latter two not part of the pack but part of my daily makeup application!). I then applied the TruBLEND foundation in Classic Beige, (dusted with powder again, to ‘seal’). I then applied the Bronzer in Bronze, the Blush in Medium Rose. For my eyes I started with the eyeliner pencil (Mocha), then applied Champagne shadow over my eyelid all the way to the brow line. In the corner of my eyelid, I applied the shadow in Coffee. I used a brow brush with the Sable to fill in my eyebrows. I “plumpified” my eyelashes with the Plumpify and finished up with the Covergirl OUTLAST on my lips in Enchantress Blush. ( I actually should have used the Oh Sugar from the kit but I grabbed the wrong lipstick LOL!)
Here’s how it came out for my instagram pic
Here’s a pic at dinner:
And here’s a pic with the fabulous @RickMillerActor after the show:
It was a great night, and I loved the show so much I actually wrote a post about it. You can read it here: BOOM AT THE SEGAL CENTRE – DO. NOT. MISS.
Overall, here’s what I thought about all the product:
TruBLEND Foundation: It’s actually good, goes on light & not too greasy, but I normally still use my powder foundation, because I find it faster because I don’t have to wash my hands after applying.
TruNAKED EyeShadow: Phenomenal!!! I have completely moved over to the TruNaked “Nudes” shadow palette. I also used my liner brush to use the darker colours as eye-liner. Perfect. I use the matte colours for daytime & add the glimmery shades for some night-time “glam”!
TruNAKED Eyeliner duo: I normally don’t use a eyeliner (as in the pencil) I use my liner brush. That said, I tested the pencil several times over the last month or so and I really liked it! It’s also a little faster than the liner-brush method I also liked having both black & brown ( mocha) in one pencil!
TruBLEND Bronzer: The colour is excellent and it goes on evenly. The only thing that I’m not crazy about is that I find it leaves a lot of ‘stray powder’ in my sink when I apply.
TruBLEND Blush: Again, the Medium Rose colour is perfect for me and goes on looking very natural but with a hint of glimmer which, I find adds a touch of glamour 😉 Although it still leaves ‘stray powder’ as well, I love it so much that I have used it too many times to count over the last month.
Plumpify Mascara: It’s good and does make the lashes look thicker, great for an evening when you want to glam-it-up. That said, when it comes to everyday, I won’t be switching from my beloved Clump Crusher by COVERGIRL!!!
Oh Sugar Lip Balm in Punch: I used it on day one & liked the silky-smooth way that it went on…It also tasted ‘punchy’! The colour was not so intense when it was on so I was able to live with it LOL, which is saying a lot because I really am NOT a fan of bright lipstick! As mentioned, last night I accidentally used the OUTLAST liptstick which looked fun & fresh but to be truthful, I had a hard time removing it when I got home:( My favourite continues to be the COVERGIRL Smoochies I simply just LOVE THEM!!!
Tru BLEND Primer: I don’t use primer on a daily basis so I only tried it out this past week. It’s thin so doesn’t feel ‘gloopy’, which I like. Given that I didn’t try it out more than twice I can’t speak very well as to its impact on my makeup. I will use it again & keep you posted
Pantene Air Spray: I am embarrassed to tell you that I completely FORGOT to try this out! I’m not a big hairspray user so I’m not SO surprised that I forgot, LOL. Update coming soon…likely via Instagram or Twitter 😉
