The Lipstick League Question of the Week
What was the last product you purchased due to hype, that ended up truly living up to the hype?
G's answer: I would have to say CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream. I saw so many people raving about it when it first came out, so I bought it the moment I found it and it is seriously my go-to BB cream now. Perfect for when I'm in a hurry and just need to apply something quickly that I don't need to worry about touching up throughout the day. It gives great coverage, stays put all day even without setting powder or primer, it controls oil, doesn't get cakey or settle into my pores or fine lines, doesn't break me out, and it doesn't oxidize on me. I also love that I can apply it right up to my lash line and on my lids and it doesn't sting or irritate my eyes (great for when I'm skipping concealer). It's perfect, I tell you! Absolutely lived up to the hype.
