Comment to Win Covergirl

Published in: Just For Fun

This giveaway is closed, and the winner will be announced soon. Thanks for entering!


Back when I was in high school about a billion years ago, one of the things I loved to do after school was hit up the drugstore with my friends to grab an ice cream cone and to check out the beauty aisle.


This afternoon, I thought it might be fun if we all did something similar together (without the ice cream, unfortch), by holding a virtual drugstore makeup party from our respective corners of the world.

And instead of ice cream, the tasty treat will be a giveaway with a chance to win some makeup from Covergirl!

The prize

One lucky lady will win a prize package containing four items from the Covergirl makeup line:

    BEN & JERRY’S Chunky Monkey Ice-cream! YUM YUM!! =P

  2. Rachael says:


    They never sold Ice Cream at the drugstores in my town but we have this ice cream/refreshments drive up by the beach that has so many flavours! Every time I go, it’s cotton candy all the way – you can get your cotton candy fix without going to the fair!

  3. xtina says:

    Haagen Daz Mint Choco Chip! πŸ™‚

    (yes they do sell that at my drug store :))

  4. Dia says:

    Blue Bell’s Mocha Madness. Pecan, chocolate chips and caramel =]

  5. Kate & Zena says:

    Edy’s French Vanilla. I loooooooove the French Vanilla. I eat it out of the jar.

    Ironically, I got two out of the four items on my previous visit to the grocery store. Firecracker’s green and pink are no where near as pigmented as I like when using my brushes but they’re okay if you use the spongey applicator thingers that come with them but hate blending. The other one I’ve used only one of the colors but are much more pigmented. I’ve been spoiled by HiP. >.<

    But, who can say “no” to free make-up? Not me!

  6. meimei says:

    The first thing that came to my mind when I saw this post was the pistachio ice cream from Thrifty’s – it was the first ice cream I ever had from my first visit to California (visiting family in LA) and I’ve always loved their ice cream ever since! I didn’t get to go to a Thrifty’s on my last few visits, though, but I have fond memories of that pistachio ice cream.

    Current favorite ice cream flavors: Chunky Monkey and Rocky Road.

  41. Molly says:

    Moose tracks! I have trouble finding it at my grocery store all of the time, but when I do.. πŸ™‚ Delicious vanilla with fudge swirls and mini peanut butter cups.

    I don’t think they ever sold ice cream cones at the drugstores I went to, but they did have those prewrapped ones… my favourite was always the Haagen Dazs ice cream bar, vanilla with the crunchy chocolate (I don’t remember what they put in it to make it crunchy).

  73. Jasmine says:

    Oh!!! My favourite is Ben and Jerry’s Pistachio! It’s so light and nutty, not too dense or sweet on the palate … I love its soft green and the frozen pistachios embedded in the ice cream. The weather here is hideous, it’s like 95 degrees, and I can’t find this flavour here at all .. πŸ™

  74. Bobbie Sue says:

    Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia, is one of my all time favorite ice creams!! If they didn’t have that I would have to go with Ben and Jerry’s Mint Chocolate Cookie!! It is awesome, my all time favorite Cookies N Cream with Mint. It can;t get better than those 2!!! πŸ™‚
