COVERGIRL's Latest & (I think) Greatest

COVERGIRL's shiny new cosmetics (used on Maggie Gyllenhaal at the "Nanny McPhee Returns" premiere) got me sufficiently intrigued so I had to test them out myself. They've had a slew of praise-worthy products come out in the last few months including their Simply Ageless Foundation (a CEW Beauty Awards Winner) and Smoky ShadowBlast double-sided Eyeshadow stick (also a CEW Beauty Winner), so I was already impressed with their offerings.
I'm always looking for beauty basics such as primers, lip colors and eye enhancers and I certainly found them in their latest collection. I tested out their COVERGIRL & Olay Simply Ageless Serum-Primer and loved how lightweight it felt on my skin. I  was also impressed by how non-clogged my pored felt after use. I'm always looking for a great lip stain (so much less up-keep than a gloss or stick) and always looking for a great eyeliner pencil and I'm pretty sure COVERGIRL knocked it out of the park (I've been living in Boston for way too long) with these products. I am OBSESSED with their LiquiLineBlast pencils. They go on super smooth (almost gel-like) but don't end up ringing around your eyes at the end of the day. The smudger on the other end of the pencil gives an incredibly firm and precise point and the shades are incredibly versatile. The pigments are rich and extremely blendable. The consistency reminds me of a liquid liner but the pencil makes applications easy. Only complain I've heard from online reviews has been about finding a sharpener that works effectively once the pencil goes blunt. I'm also loving their Outlast Lipstains. I had tried a few in the past and could never really find the right shade. Ironically, I found it when I tried the same shade Ms. Gyllenhaal was sporting: 450 Saucy Plum. Talk about versatile! The cherry-plum stain is rich but not overpowering and brings out a great natural-looking flush with the contrast in color to my skin tone. I love this shade!
