Every year I watch the MTV Video Music Awards, something always happens on that show and I’m sure this year will not be any different. At the very least, there’s some awesome style and beauty inspiration on display. Tonight I’ll be watching the show with all of you and chiming in on Twitter as part of the #LOOKSTHATROCK red carpet Twitter party at 5pm PST.
CVS asked me to host a pre-VMA party to come up with our own #LOOKSTHATROCK so I had a view friends over, served up some chicken piccata and some wine then gave each of my guests a gift bag with a CVS gift card and some Cover Girl, Olay, Gillette and Crest products to play with. When there’s good food, good wine and beauty products on the table, a good time is had by all. 🙂
Aside from the CVS gift card, each gift bag had a great selection of products, some I had been very curious about myself and a few I already knew well and loved:
- Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl For Eyes
- Crest 3D White Brilliance Toothpaste
- Gillette Venus Snap Razor
- Cover Girl Bombshell Shineshadow in #300 Ice Queen
- Cover Girl Outlast Illumina All-Day Lip Color in #553 Moonlight Mauve
- Cover Girl Bombshell Curvaceous Mascara in #800 Very Black
CVS tasked us with creating our own looks with the contents of our goodie bags and what instantly came to mind was a silver, shimmery lid with a soft pink lip and lots of winged, black eyeliner. Gorgeous and VMA worthy, right? I realized something very crucial was missing from bag to complete the look, eyeliner! This inspired me to pick up an extra for each bag: Cover Girl’s Bombshell Intensity Liner in Pitch Black Passion. It was a good time for this too because right now it is BOGO 50% off on a variety of Cover Girl and Crest products.
So this is me attempting to create the look. Not as va-va-boom as I hoped for but I like it enough to do it again. I thought the Cover Girl ShineShadow was going to be a little too shimmery but it sheers down nicely to give your lids a subtle shimmer that is buildable. And the Bombshell Curvaceous Mascara does all sorts of favors for my lashes. My favorite thing about this look is the Outlast Illumina All-Day Lip Color in #553 Moonlight Mauve, it wears for days (not literally but you get the idea…) without budging. I had forgotten how much I liked these!
Check out all the offers CVS has going on your favorite P&G brands and don’t forget to tune in to the MTV VMAs tonight and join me for the red carpet Twitter party at 5pm PST (8pm EST), just use the #LOOKSTHATROCK hashtag to follow along!
