Friday Beauty Links: CoverGirl XL Nail Gel, Lancôme Grandiose Mascara, and more
Posted Jul 11 2014 7:57pm
Is it just me, or has this week sped by?
I did my nails on Monday with this new CoverGirl XL Nail Gel from the #instaGLAM collection and they’ve lasted 5 full days, as you can see here with my manicure in Overblown Orange. No top coat or base coat necessary, and they have a plump, glossy appearance that really does replicate the appearance of a gel manicure. For only $8 at the drugstore, you can color me very impressed.
[Psst: Sneaky bit of product placement for my book Confessions of a Beauty Addict, eh? If you're looking for a fun, breezy beach read with a little romance thrown in, it's currently on sale at Amazon both in paperback and on Kindle, along with my first book Beauty Confidential. I'll have more book news for you very soon!]
InStyle makes a bold promise , claiming that the new Lancôme Grandiose wand will “change the way you apply mascara.” Them’s fighting words. I’m getting a sample next week, so I’ll let you know if it lives up to the hype.
