Giveaway + look | A spring look in pink and blue with the new Covergirl Flamed Out collection

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

Covergirl is a brand that I can really relate to. The brand’s products and campaigns are always young, fun and colorful, and the same can be said about the new Covergirl Flamed Out collection for the spring of 2014. The collection has been in stores since February and consist of a Flamed Out mascara, six Flamed Out Shadow Pots and six Flamed Out Pencils. For today’s blog post I created a colorful spring look in pink and blue using the Flamed Out Mascara, one of the Shadow Pots and two of the Flamed Out Pencils. Have a look!

Covergirl Flamed Out Mascara in Very Black Blaze

The new Covergirl Flamed Out Mascara has an innovative ‘Volume Igniter’ brush with two ‘Igniter Zones’ at the ends with long bristles and one ‘Volume Zone’ in the middle with shorter bristles to give your lashes as much length and volume as possible. Seriously, how totally super awesome are those names?! I can only imagine how much fun the people at Covergirl must have had while brainstorming about this mascara! And the new Flamed Out Mascara really delivers, because it indeed lengthens and thickens my lashes and the brush is very practical.

Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Fired Up Pink

The new Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Fired Up Pink is a bright pink shimmery powder eyeshadow.  The eyeshadow is intensely pigmented, long-wearing and easy to apply without creasing (win) and without fall-out (double win).

Covergirl Flamed Out Pencil in Ice Flame & Hot Pink Flame

The new Covergirl Flamed Out Pencils are colorful make-up pencils with a creamy gel formula that can be used both as eyeshadow and as eyeliner. I initially tried using them on my waterline, but unfortunately that resulted in burning red eyes and lots of tears. Strange, because I almost never get an allergic reaction to eye make-up… But as cream eyeshadow and as eyeliner against the lash line the new Flamed Out Pencils look absolutely lovely. Both Ice Flame (icy bleu) and Hot Pink Flame (dirty pink) are intensely pigmented, easy to apply and very long-lasting.

  8. Awesome! :-D I’ve just recently been loving the ‘one colour on the upper lash line, another colour on the lower lash line’ in my own eyeliner adventures recently, so this look inspires me to continue!

  9. Een allergische reactie is echt pijnlijk. Gisterenavond had ik voor het eerst ook zo’n reactie en ik heb nog altijd tranen in mijn ogen :’) Die 2 kleuren staan jou wel mooi. Dat is niet iedereen gegeven!

  10. I would gladly wear this, pink and baby blue is such a cute combination :D About the pencils I must say they didn’t attract me much but you swatches changed my mind because they look great actually! :)

  11. Loving those eye pencils, such adorable colors and perfect for spring! And great look, so sweet and innocent ^_^

  12. Hot Pink Flame just might come home with me! I’m drooling over a high end pink cream formula these days but I know I wouldn’t wear it much so this would be the perfect alternative. Love the look you’ve created. Ok now *dances the “come now spring” in livingroom* :)
