COVERGIRL Bombshell collection and Ulta gift card giveaway

Wearing products from the new COVERGIRL Bombshell Collection

You know how in every group of gal pals, each gal kinda has her own role? You’ve got the mother hen, the braniac, the tomboy, etc.

Me? I usually fall into the role of “the funny one,” or “the weirdo writer.”

I always thought it would’ve been fun to be the one all the boys flocked to, aka “the sexy one,” but alas, seduction was never my forte.

I seriously could not seduce my way out of a paper bag. (Remind me to tell you about the time I dove into the ocean without my glasses or contacts on and swam away from a cute guy…who ended up being El Hub.)

Even though I’m not a seductive siren by nature, I still think it’s fun to role-play, especially with makeup. It’s like stepping into someone else’s shoes for a while or playing a character for a day.

Covergirl Bombshell Collection

A few things from the new Covergirl Bombshell collection…

Characters like “The Bombshell.”

Enter COVERGIRL. This spring, COVERGIRL is channeling bombshell beauty with their vampy new Bombshell collection of cream shadows, liquid liners, mascaras, lipsticks and nail polishes in colors designed to tempt and seduce.

Which brings me to this…

You know what I’m about to say, right? πŸ™‚


And mini-tutorial time, too. I’ve joined forces with Ulta Beauty and COVERGIRL this week to bring you a bodacious bombshell giveaway and a sneak-peak at a makeup tutorial I’ve been working on using products from the new Bombshell collection.

  1. Laurel says:

    What a great look!

  2. Chanelle (C.M.) says:

    I like CG’s hunger games polishes!

  3. maggie says:

    I prefer bright lips! I tend to wear a lot of blacks and greys, so I try to brighten it up a little bit with a strong shoe or striking lip.

    • Kiki says:

      Hm, I usually do neutrals with neutrals. But… I guess even a bright can be a neutral if it’s pure enough? Maybe? πŸ™‚

  4. Susan says:

    I really love the coppery-golden eyes, but I think with this look I will do a red or nude lipstick instead of the pink.

  5. Noon says:

    I bet Tabs could teach you how to seduce your way INTO a paper bag, though, if he’s anything like the other kitties I’ve met πŸ˜‰

    Also you look totally gorgeous in the bright lip color. You may not play a seductress, but you sure can pull off the look well!

  7. Andrea says:

    Love that bright pink! Right up my alley!

  8. Heather USA (Rafflecopter: Rosie Areola) says:

    I have a ton of CoverGirl product faves like the LashBlast and Clump Crusher mascaras, 3-in-1 Foundation, lip perfection lipsticks and their pressed powders.

  9. Deborah says:

    Ooh, awesome idea with the tape!

  10. CarolineL says:

    My first makeup product was from Covergirl-one of their powders in a green case. It was super powdery on me but just loved the smell. Also, bought a liquid foundation that totally didn’t match me for my prom. I didn’t wear it of course.

  11. stephanie says:

    Haven’t been in Ulta in forever, reminds me to make a stop there!

  12. rainebeaux says:

    I prefer nude lipcolor, but I’m not ruling out brights these days (the closest I get is mood lipstick…remember that classic?). Now that i have an Ulta within spitting distance of me (it’s been at least a year that i can recall), what better way to return than via this lovely giveaway? *big grin*

  13. Marta says:

    I am more a bright lipstick girl !

  14. Christa says:

    Oh that pink! And I love your tape trick–genius!

  15. Tiffanie says:

    Thanks for the tutorial. You look amazing!

  16. Ashlee K says:

    On a day-to-day basis I prefer a medium lip color, like a soft rosy pink or peachy pink. But I’m not afraid to go bold with a bright pink or red πŸ˜‰

  17. deb cohen says:

    i have a new Ulta close that just opened last month

  18. sienna says:

    it has been forever since i was in an ulta, but winng the gc would get me in the door asap!

  22. natalie says:

    We’re supposed to get a snow storm this weekend, so I’m planning for lots of reading and TV-watching.

  23. Lydia F says:

    Usually I’m a fan of nude lip colors, but I’ve been working on branching out and trying new colors. Red’s still a bit strong for my taste, but coral’s been fun.

  24. michele l says:

    i love covergirl ive used it for ever was the first kind of make-up i used as a teen and im still using it

  25. Brittnee says:

    I normally wear nude lipstick but I NEED that hot pink crayon!!!

    Love the look! So excited for the new collection!

  27. serina says:

    love this!

  28. Amy Simon says:

    I prefer a nude lip with any look, bright lips never look right on me!

  29. Gina says:

    The shadow looks fun!

  30. Angela Y says:

    I prefer light pink lipstick.

  31. Gina R. says:

    Considering the temperature never rose above FREEZING here in Atlanta today (what the what!?!?!), I never got the chance to take my beloved puppy Otto out for a date at the dog park. I’m hoping I can fit that in sometime this weekend! Also I’m definitely a nude lip girl, but your latest posts on those gorgeous purple/orchid lips may have persuaded me to go out searching for some bold color!

    • Gina R. says:

      After writing this, I just went to ‘hug-pologize’ said puppy and he gave me the cold shoulder! He just rolled his eyes with a, ‘I’m. So. Bored’ look and yawned and went back to sleep. I’m in big trouble if we don’t get to the park asap lol! TGIF everyone πŸ™‚

  32. sweeks1980 says:

    I went to Ulta earlier this week. I love how it has a mix of drugstore and high-end products.

  33. Jennifer Austin says:

    Great look. I wonder if using that tape would help with fall out? I have a few shadows I love but the fall out is horrible. It’s so hard to get it off your under eye and not look like you have black eyes! Any suggestions?

  34. Kathleen N says:

    My go to covergirl product is the clump crusher mascara! it does SO much for my wimpy lashes!

  35. Jenny S. says:

    I love going for a natural look, nudes and whatnot. But I do love randomly getting wild with more bold colors.

  36. Carolyn says:

    I like the day time lip look. I want it!

  37. Leah Quinn says:

    Bright lip stick all the way!

  43. Yolanda C. says:

    I love both nude and bold lipsticks. Lately i’ve been leaning towards bold lips for fall. Thank you for the giveaway!

    I’ve always wanted to try a bright red lipstick but I prefer the more mellow looks, so nudes and soft pinks are what I tend to stick too. Maybe one of these days I’ll break out and try something new. πŸ™‚

  55. Ambritt says:

  116. Petunia says:

    I have been diggin’ on Dior red lipsticks lately, but nude lips have their moments too. Depends on the day and the mood. Like most everything.

    Just visited ulta two days ago looking for the too faced chocolate bar eyeshadow palette.

  139. Varika says:

    I ordered online from Ulta a few days before Christmas- does that count? πŸ™‚

    Covergirl makes my favorite mascaras, hands down. Not wet, not dry. I will forever miss Volume Exact, though.

  141. Cee says:

    Loved the Hunger Games-themed collection, looking forward to more from CG.

  142. Jelisa F. says:

    I’ve been using Covergirl since I was 10 years old and I would sneakily use some of my moms compact powder. Which by the way didn’t match my color. I think my mom knew but never said anything.

    I’ve been curious about the bombshell mascara, though that tube looks like it will take up serious vanity space.

  172. shaula vercruysse says:

    I have never visited an ulta store and would love to experience it!!! πŸ™‚

  173. I’m more of an eyeshadow person than lipstick-but if forced, definitely love the bright lips for the right occasion!

  174. Wendy says:

    The eye shadows look great on you. I might need to try this collection out πŸ™‚

  175. Nika says:

    Hmmhmm, Cherry Twist looks tempting πŸ˜€

  177. Kathy T says:

    I prefer bright lipsticks!

  178. Nlm8 says:

    I prefer to wear a nude lip…but my New Year’s beauty resolution is to experiment with bold colors!

  179. Becca says:

    i love ulta and really liked your rule about shopping with cash….so there is no temptation to buy the 100th eyeliner, etc….my latest obsession is leave-in conditioner. I have like 5 just purchased since November! and over the holidays I bought more! what’s wrong with me??

  180. Reg says:

    My go to covergirl product is definitely their mascara!

  181. Jennifer Pham says:

    I love and use CG Lash Blast Waterproof every day as a base mascara. It holds curl perfectly!

  182. Caitlyn S. says:

    I had a beautiful fossil watch that had hearts with pink rhinestones and clear, and then clear rhinestones around the faces outside. It was my favorite watch but the battery died and the. Some of the stones started to fall out, but I had it five years. Now I really want a Michael Kors runway watch with the big MK symbol on the face…. Probably silver would be worn more but the rose gold is real pretty too. But their so expensive… If I could get one for under $100 I’d be happy but even on ebay they over that…. So I better find a new watch love!

    So beautiful! I’ve only ever used Cover Girl Mascara and no other products. But I do plan on checking this collection out! Thanks for the look!

  184. Cheryl F. says:

    I prefer nude lipsticks.

  185. I went to Ulta about a month ago. I always find so many great things there!

  186. Hanne L. says:

    Beautiful look, will be using this for daily looks!

  187. Jennifer brown says:

    I really love cover girl clump crusher mascara and I’m definitely going to pick up the extensions version next time I’m in ulta!!

  188. Debbie says:

    Hope you’re having a nice weekend!

  189. Fran says:

    Ever since Ulta opened a store right next to the Target where I do a lot of my grocery shopping, I’m in there at *least* once a week, sometimes twice or more! All the people who work there are so friendly and helpful. Since I bought the new Vice Palette there, I sometimes go in just to show off my eye shadow look of the day to other people who like to have fun with makeup. Having great people in the store really means a lot.

  190. Deanna says:

    Love this look! You’re so talented, Karen! Also, thank you for reminding me about that tape trick – I ALWAYS struggle with liner, definitely giving this a try soon!

  191. Deanna says:

    Hi, Karen! I wear a watch every day. I actually feel naked without it! The watch that I wear most often is a Skagen white ceramic watch that has crystals all the way around the timepiece. I love how it sparkles in sunlight!

  192. Melissa says:

    Gorgeous look! I’m loving this new collection!

  193. Amanda says:

  200. Amanda Val says:

    My friends and I were actually thinking about how boys would typecast each of us.. it’s not fair how our popular culture says that typecasting as a defense mechanism is okay. We are four brilliant girls, but only one of us is “dateable” per se.. Oh well.

  201. Alli Gberg says:

    Can you do a tutorial on the tape eye thing? I know it sounds crazy but I have seen several others do some kind of tape trick when it comes to eyeliner/eyeshadow and I wonder if it is really effective, and how I can use it. Thx! Love your blog, and although I am a Texas girl, I have a soft spot in my heart for the Bay Area. Bf and fam is from Sunnyvale (south bay) and I have visited so many times!

  202. Holly says:

    I love it!

  203. yelena says:

    oooh i like both daytime and night time looks!

  204. Paige says:

    Recently I’ve been loving the Clump Crusher mascara and one of the blushes that I can’t remember the name of right now!

  205. Lucina says:

    yayy! giveaways =D

  206. pam says:

    I love bold lips… I kinda never understood that nude thing

  207. Julia Alkaseltzer says:

    My last visit to an Ulta store was 2 days after Christmas! Woo it was so packed!!!

  208. Nicole says:

    The last time I went to Ulta was a week ago. And I’ll probably go back today… and maybe again tomorrow πŸ˜‰

  209. Joanna D. says:

    I went to Ulta 4x in the last month. I’ll also probably end up going tomorrow to hit up the Benefit Brow Bar. Starting to favor Ulta over Sephora but don’t tell Sephora that lol.

  210. Neha says:

    My go to Cover girl products are Covergirl Heavenly lipstick, great everyday pink and Fairytale lipstick.

    I prefer bright red and fuchsia lipsticks!

  216. Julie B. says:

    I much prefer color (pink or peach) to nude lipsticks, as I look really weird in nudes.

  217. Lynn says:

    I love nude lip colors… and especially the peachy nudes

  218. Emily says:

    Bright lips are always so much fun, but I never know if I can pull them off for a daytime look!

  219. liz says:

    I have way more nude lipsticks than one person should own, I think. But that’s not stopping me from buying more! Sorry to my wallet…

  220. Mandy says:

    I used to wear a watch but then I realized that I’m always around devices that tell me the time, like computers and my phone!

  221. Millie says:

    I always go to Ulta. It’s so close to my house. I think I bought some lippies to send to my sister in the Philippines also some of those Stila lip glosses which were 3 for $8.00.

  222. Tayler says:

    Gotta love a good lip crayon!

  223. Hollie H says:

    Last time I was at Ulta was about a week ago. I wanted to see if they had the new Philosophy Miracle Worker Foundation yet…sadly, they didn’t.

  224. Jacob says:

    I wear a classic style wrist watch; it’s a cheap one from Wal-Mart because I tend to break watches and thought it wouldn’t be worth a more expensive one

  225. Heather says:

    My birthday is coming up on the 8th and a $100 Ulta gift card to spend during my Birthday month, (double points) and some of that Bombshell makeup would make an EXCELLENT Birthday present…especially because I’m all grown up with kids of my own & don’t get too many birthday presents anymore, unless their from myself or hubby, lol.

    *fingers crossed*

    I go to Ulta whenever I visit the continental US and I spend gobs of money. Why don’t we have Ulta in Alaska? why? why? why? So the last time I was there was in October, 12. I went 8 times in 4 days.

    I visit Ulta twice a week!

  254. Sherry says:

    I love going to Ulta especially since it’s by my house. I was there last week to pick up a Tarte BB tinted moisturizer.

  255. Maddie says:

    I definitely prefer nude lipstick! It looks really pretty and almost colored on my very pale skin.

  256. I love the look of a large-faced/masculine watch on a woman. I especially like it for myself because as a plus size woman, I think tiny accessories look like I’m overcompensasting. I have a round faced watch that I can see without my glasses and I get compliments on it all the time. I only paid $12 for it!

  257. Jenifer says:

    Karen, what are you wearing on your cheeks? I love the bombshell look, any other colors in the line that are as deep as bombshell? Any good nudes?
    How did the mascara perform? These weekend was for a stomach virus πŸ™

  269. Georgia L says:

    Do you wear a watch? If so, tell me about it. Leopardy-tortoise Guess Watch I got @ TJ Maxx with a gift card. It’s one of my favorites. Other ones: a leopard tortoise-shell bangle bracelet that was a free GWP from Ulta years ago. I’ve had that watch repaired several times I love it so. It goes with my animalian wardrobe. And my third favorite watch is a basic, boring, black and silver watch I bought at Overstock.com years ago. It’s so classic and has served me well for years.

  270. MelodyJ says:

    The last time I went to Ulta was in November. So, I’m really overdue. I like to go once a month.

  271. Ariel R says:

    I really like Covergirl’s nail polishes.

  272. Danielle says:

    Great giveaway as always – really appreciate it and your blog. I prefer natural colored lipsticks, ones that are your regular lip color only enhanced for a really classic look.

  273. Jennifer says:

    I was just in Ulta a few days ago on the 1st. I didn’t spend as long there as I usually do since the hubs was with me. I’ll be going back soon!

    I love Cover Girl’s Clump Crusher!

  276. Shari says:

    I wasn’t all that into watches until Hubs bought me a totally gorg blinged-out Michael Kors watch (the Camille crystal encrusted) for Christmas. Now? I’m all over wearing a watch! The funny thing is I’ve had it for almost two weeks now and just yesterday noticed it was an hour off!! Clearly I wear it for the bling factor rather than function.

  313. Kayvid says:

    It’s very nice to see drugstore products matching up to many higher end products nowadays…

  314. Ashleigh says:

    Do you wear a watch? If so, tell me about it. No, although I do have a lovely one that needs a new battery. That reminds me…
    When was the last time you visited an Ulta Beauty store? Right before Christmas to do some shopping for my mother’s gift. Some of her favorite products (Too Faced) and a cute cosmetic bag. I also snagged some cute pink ORLY polish for myself when I was there 😑 Ulta is my fav.
    Do you prefer bright or nude lipsticks? Nude. Sadly my complexion (red hair, fair/neutral skin) makes life difficult when it comes to pulling off bright lipstick. But I still own a bunch and break them out for special occasions.

  315. roz says:

    Gotta try that tape trick

  316. michaela says:

    i’m a nude lipstick kinda girl

  317. I haven’t been excited by Covergirl in a while, but there are some really interesting things in their spring release! The liner looks great and I’m intrigued by the mascara. Packaging is pretty, too!

  318. I have to say I love your idea of the tape under the eyes. I’m always having to clean up makeup from applying a smoky eye, which is one of my favorite looks.

    I love Ulta! We don’t have many near me in NY, but when I go to visit my daughter in PA, we stock up on everything we can get our hands on. Makeup hair products, clips and potions, pretty much everything we see that we can’t get at home! Btw, love the pink lipstick in the photos!

    Covergirl Lashblast has been my go to mascara for almost five years! And theres an Ulta less then ten minuets away from my house so I go a lot more often than my wallet thinks I should!

    The last time I went to Ulta was about a year ago. It’s so far!I wish there was one closer to me

  361. Here’s hoping I win! I love ulta because they mix both drug store and high end makeup.

  362. Andrea says:

    I prefer nude lips, but I’m trying to branch out more! Maybe I could pull off this bright pink!

  363. Marlysha Mondesir says:

    I love Bright lipsticks! I find that nude ones tend to wash me out πŸ˜›

  364. Danielle D says:

    I love their make up!

  365. Rakhi says:

    love love love covergirl!!!

  366. Ling says:

    *Drools at all the makeup*

  367. Kelsey V. says:

    Covergirl was part of my first makeup kit as a kid! When I was about 9 my oldest sister got sick of my grimy hands in her makeup bag so she got my a little strter kit with Covergirl pressed powder, cheekers blush, and clear mascara. I thought i was the coolest pre-teen around! Now ten years later I have expanded my horizons, but I still make a trip to the Covergirl display every now and then to see what’s new!

  368. Cassandra Eastman says:

    This look is so beautiful! One of my staple makeup products is Covergirl. I can’t live without their Tinted Moisturizer, it’s the only foundation I can find to work well with my dry skin!

  369. Raluca T says:

    I just discovered your blog today and it’s amazing! Where have you been all this time?

  370. Cherylle Ramos says:

    Would love to win this!! Money’s so tight I couldnt spend money on make up:( money goes straight to the kids:) have had the same make up ( eyeshadows, blush, lipstick) for a while now.. Would love to be able to buy some new ones

  371. Karina says:

    Love the look!!! πŸ˜€

  372. Christine Orlando says:

    I got the bombshell mascara a few days ago! I love it more for everyday look as the formula is thin, and the brush is great for separating. But with extra coats you can get much fuller but still soft lashes.

  373. Linda says:

    Nice look! I’m still trying to figure out how to do a cat eye with my hooded eyes, extremely curled lashes that get in the way, and unsteady hands.

  374. Elsa says:

    love the jumbo balm!

  375. Brandi Price says:

    I have only been in an Ulta Store a couple times. I knew the moment I walked in that I would get in trouble if I went in there much… LL

  376. Kate McAtee says:

    Let me begin by saying this is such a fabulous giveaway! Thank you so much for hosting! I absolutely love Ulta! I thought I would answer one of your suggested questions, the one about bright or nude lipsticks. I prefer nude lipsticks. I’ve always liked to keep things a bit more natural and toned down, but I’m trying to step out of my comfort zone and become bolder with some of my makeup choices. I guess I’m in between at the moment. Thank you again for hosting this amazing giveaway! So grateful for the opportunity to get my name in the hat! Love your blog! Lots of love!

  400. Jill Ann says:

  408. Natasha P. says:

    Last time I visited an Ulta was about a month and a half to 2 months ago.. it’s not my favorite beauty store. The ones I’ve been to are always dim with not great lighting and I don’t know.. just something about the atmosphere that I don’t like too much, so it’s a rare occasion for me.

  409. cherry says:
