Product Review: CoverGirl Blast & got2b Smooth Operator

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

Joined Bzz Agent awhile back and they sent me some products to review.

First the got2b Smooth Operator:

It’s a ‘Smoothing Lustre Lotion’. I combed it through my towel dried hair and the sample they had given was quite large so I didn’t use all of it. It smelled great and made my hair soft and somewhat shiny. But I wouldn’t say that it did much for the frizz or smoothing of my hair…not past the initial few hours. I wouldn’t buy it because I tend to not use a lot of products in my hair and hate the idea of putting something in and weighing it down.

Second, the CoverGirl ‘Smoky Shadow Blast’ duo. I was able to choose colors and chose the ‘Citrus Flair’ combo (shown left).

I did that because I don’t really have any green eyeshadow that color in my collection. Now I realize with good reason. While the concept is great – combine the two colors so all you have to do fully cover your eyelid with one side (has a wide tip) and then use the other (smaller curved tip) to do the liner/shadow – it didn’t look right on my skin at all. I’m sure another color would have looked much better and it really is an easy to-do. However, I’m not the greatest fan of any eyeshadow but MAC powder so I don’t think I”d ever get it. And especially not in the color.

CoverGirl and Bzz Agent also sent me the ‘Shine Blast’ lipgloss.

I chose the color ‘Smolder’ because I have been looking for something nude. However, what I got was something that didn’t look anything like the color online. In reality the color was not a dark nude, but rather a very shimmery pale color that on my lips only shows up as glossy. Fail. However, I do like the color and I love the applicator tip which is specially designed to cover your your lips. Just wish the colors were less shimmery gloss and had more color to them.

Now I’m off to a job interview for something super fun. Fingers crossed…
