There has been an awakening… in the cosmetics aisle at your local big box store. CoverGirl has officially revealed their Star Wars: The Force Awakens inspired makeup collection, and it’s all about choosing between the light and dark sides of the Force. Word of CoverGirl’s Star Wars collection leaked in June, along with pictures of packaging, and I was already drooling then. Now that we have a closer look at the products and shades, I’m just going to go ahead and set credits aside.
The line includes six new lipstick colors, three shades of nail polish, and ten tubes of mascara featuring quotes from the Star Wars films–including the first six films and The Force Awakens. CoverGirl Global Creative Design Director Pat McGrath has come up with six different and dramatic looks using products from the collection, and those are being unveiled at CoverGirl’s Star Wars Tumblr.
On to the product! The Colorlicious lipstick comes in new shades exclusive to the Star Wars collection. You can choose from Dark Purple, Gold, Red, Lilac, Silver, and Nude. And yes, I want them all.
I’ll have to be more selective with the mascara. The tubes of light side quotes are waterproof, the dark side quotes are not. Other than that, there’s not much difference between the items except for the quote on the container.
Flip through the gallery below to get a closer look at the products and to see the nail polish–it comes in Light, Nemesis, or Red Revenge. You’ll be able to purchase CoverGirl’s Star Wars collection online beginning September 4th (Force Friday) and in stores beginning in mid-September. The collection is limited so be sure to grab products as early as you can if you want them.
Do you find yourself needing all the makeup just because it has Star Wars on the packaging? Because I maybe have that problem. Head to the comments and let me know what you plan on buying from this line.
