So let's hear it, Star Wars fans! What do you think of this upcoming collection? Once again, the release date per Allure is September 4th but as we all know, these things sometimes have a way of hitting drugstores a bit earlier than the official release date. So be on the lookout for these soon, and hopefully there will be a good sale + coupons when you find them. May the force be with you when it comes to getting a good deal on these!

Thanks again, @specktranet and @missjae1908, for the tip about this one!

  2. I wonder why they didn't bother to give the lipsticks Star Wars names?

    1. I kind of wonder if maybe they do have star wars names but they don't want to release it yet... probably not but it's A New Hope (can't resist a pun.Lol.)

  3. I'm a little disappointed, but that won't stop me from buying them because I'm a Star Wars fan. I'm not really blown away by the colors and the names (for the lipsticks especially) are a little lame. I am really going to have to prevent myself from buying all 10 mascaras, though.

    1. I agree. I was hoping for some eyeshadows too. And 10 mascaras that are all the same? Boring. However, being the huge SW fan that I am, I will purchase every item in this collection because I am clearly insane.

  4. Can you actually see which quote is on the mascara before you buy it, or do you blindly have to keep buying if you want to collect all 10 for whatever reason?

  5. I'm a nail polish collector and the fact that the nail polish colors aren't really unique makes me so sad. Not sure if I can justify buying one.

    1. ugh, my thought exactly - if we're in a galaxy far far away, why are we getting these same old earthbound colors?!?

  6. Coming from someone who I'd working with lucas on product development in an unrelated field I would be hugely surprised if the lipsticks don't have more fitting names. Those silver and gold puppies will.be.mine.

  7. It doesn't seem like the mascaras have "names" either. They're all "very black", dark side is regular nonwaterproof and light side is water proof it looks like but each tube will have a different design. At least that is my understanding?

  8. Can't wait love Starwars might have to get everything from this collection. :D

  9. Too bad they didn't make the mascara look like lightsabers.

  10. I really want a mascara tube that says "You're my only hope."

  11. Dear Wallet,
    Sorry, not sorry.

  12. I don't love Star Wars enough to start collecting makeup (isn't it worth more if you DON'T use it?), but I will say that I love the Cover Girl Outlast Stay Brilliant formula and the SuperSizer mascara.

  13. I was just on Tenptalia and she recently posted about this collection, too. It looks like some of the lipsticks have unique names, but maybe all of the names haven't been released yet!

  14. They couldn't even name the silver and gold lipsticks after R2D2 and C3PO? Boo-urns.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Why why why why why can't this be a cruelty free brand?!!!

  16. I want a few of those lipsticks. I can take or leave Star Wars, but I'm into metallics at the moment so that dark purple, the gold and the wine are all appealing.
    I think all the mascaras are black, aren't they? I'm hoping that's not the case. If they have 10 different tubes, it'd be cool if they released 10 colors. Why not space-age silver and gold? Bronze? Pewter? A shimmery lilac, a pearly white and and ice blue or something, you know? Go all out!

  17. A few of the lipsticks look interesting. I hope the formula is good.

  19. I'm definitely will be hunting this one down! love Star wars! such a great collaboration

  20. Why did it have to be CoverGirl?! :( I'm allergic to their lipsticks, so that's a huge bummer. I really like the metallic lipsticks and I might have to pick a few up for display, but I don't think I'll be able to wear them!! :(

  21. I'm very meh about this whole collection so far.

    ReplyDelete
