Win It! I’m Taking the 7-Day COVERGIRL LipPerfection Challenge
Join me during NYFW as I test out COVERGIRL’s “Runway Collection” curated by Pat McGrath. Plus, enter to win the entire collection!
-April Daniels Hussar
Today is the official first day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (Spring 2012) here in New York, and the lovely people at COVERGIRL invited me to add a little luxe into what is otherwise going to be seven days of complete madness. They want me to try their LipPerfection lipstick for seven days straight, and see if it lives up to their claims that it will revitalize and soften my poor neglected, oft-chapped lips. (I should probably mention I have the terrible habit of picking my lips — so not glamorous!)
Here’s what COVERGIRL says about LipPerfection line and the new “Runway Collection”:
LipPerfection lipcolor has been a favorite of Pat McGrath since its launch last year. This year, 16 of the season’s most fashion forward shades have been plucked from the COVERGIRL LipPerfection Collection by Pat herself as a capsule “Runway Collection.” Packed with silk moisturizers, these runway faves smooth and improve lips over seven days. A collision of color and moisture has created perfection for lips. In a single stroke, lips are enhanced with rich, rewarding color and in just 7 days, the Silk Moisturizers help transform lips to their smoothest and most luscious.
Hmmm … I like the sound of “smoothest and most luscious”! I also like the promise of a lot of color — I’m not into these lipsticks that disappear the second you even think about taking a sip of your soda.
Plus, there are a zillion gorgeous colors to choose from. Okay, 44 in the whole LipPerfection collection, and 16 in the Runway capsule collection. So, like, a zillion. The Runway Collection includes: Darling, Fairytale, Divine, Tempt, Euphoria, Embrace, Hot, Flame, Delish, Fervor, Sultry, Enamor, Coquette, Spellbound, Heavenly and Temptation. If they are anywhere near as fabulous as their names, I’m in (luscious) heaven!
And, yes — we have two complete Runway Collection sets of 16 lipsticks to give away to our readers. More on that below!
I didn’t wear any lipstick yesterday (gasp! awe!), and it’s the crack of dawn as I’m writing this (trying not to paw my chapped lips. Ew!). I’m going wild and crazy and posting a pic now og me sans ANY MAKEUP so you can see the state of my lips …
Scary! And why is that hook sticking out of my shirt?
Over the next week I’ll be Tweeting updates daily from our @BettyBuzz account and my own @AprilHussar. Then, after seven days, when presumably my lips will be so gorgeous you’ll all want to smooch me, I’ll post a recap of the week’s challenge.
And now! The giveaway!
Two (2) lucky readers will win one (1) complete COVERGIRL LipPerfection Runway Collection, which include all 16 of the shades curated by Pat McGraph herself. (Each lipstick retails for around $6.50 — quelle bargain — so all toghether each prize package is worth approximately, uh (calculator ….. ) $104.
