CoverGirl x Star Wars Collection Now Available Online

I want to thank readers @girlgo39 and Katie S. for the following tips:

The CoverGirl x Star Wars collection of lipsticks, mascaras, and nail colors is now available on the Drugstore.com website (free shipping on orders $35+).

BUT, here's where it gets a little tricky...






But when it comes to the mascaras, which you can order HERE, you can see in my photo at the very top of this post (taken from the Drugstore.com website) that it clearly shows tube number 6/10. But that may not be the one you get! To refresh your memory, there are ten different phrases available:


And when you go into the item listings, you do NOT get to select which phrase you want.


Product received may contain any 1 of the 5 limited edition quotes shown:

"I will finish what you started"
"There has been an awakening"
"Indeed you are powerful"
"You will meet your destiny"
"Immune to the light"


Product received may contain any 1 of the 5 limited edition quotes shown:

"I will finish what you started"
"There has been an awakening"
"Indeed you are powerful"
"You will meet your destiny"
"Immune to the light"

Notice that both listings repeat the same five phrases, when clearly phrases 1-5 should be in the Light Side listing. ANYWAY, if you care at all about which tubes you get, wait for these to appear in stores, so you can at least try to see if the number is visible through the packaging (depending on how the tube is situated in the packaging, I'm guessing either the number or the phrase itself will be visible).

As for the nail polish:


If you go on the CoverGirl site, you'll see that they have six Star Wars polish shades listed (see pic above), but only THREE of the six are limited edition (I believe the other three will still have "Star Wars" printed on the caps, even though they are actually part of the permanent, core collection).

The Limited Edition shades are:

Speed of Light (cement-gray)
Nemesis (black-plum cream)
Red Revenge (cherry red)

The other shades are:

Fury (orange-red)
Mutant (vibrant blue)
Nuclear (chartreuse)

@lifeinpolish actually swatched Mutant and Nuclear HERE, back when these first started showing up in drugstores (without the Star Wars logo, of course, since these are new shades in the permanent, core line for 2015).

If you want to purchase these, they are all available on the drugstore.com site HERE. HOWEVER, all six shades are mixed in with the core shades in the product listing, and when you click on the Star Wars shades, the product images do NOT show "Star Wars" printed on the lids. So order at your own risk, since I do not  know if you'll be actually be getting polishes with the Star Wars logo.

SUMMARY:  It's safe to get your lipsticks online now, if you're worried about not being able to find them locally when they hit the drugstores/mass retailers in your area. But I would wait on the mascaras and nail polishes, since you don't know which phrases you'll get with the mascaras (if that's important to you), and we don't know if the polishes currently on the Drugstore.com website actually have "Star Wars" printed on the caps (if you speak with anyone in customer service and find out, I would absolutely love to hear from you!).

I hope this helps and thanks again, @girlgo39 and Katie S., for the awesome tips!

  1. Just an FYI, even if you spend $35.00 on these, you still get charged $1.99 for preorder and backorder. The lipsticks are not actually available to be shipped until 09/09/15 on the website.

  3. G!!! I seriously LOVE being one of your loyal readers. I've been hunting the stores all day, coming up empty on any Star Wars Covergirl products, not to mention not being able to order on the covergirl website. Thanks to this post, I just ordered the 2 lipsticks I wanted. Holding off on the mascara because we can't choose the quote, so I might have to do a bit of hunting for that but I wanted the lipsticks most. So thank you!!!!!!!
