Spotted: CoverGirl x Star Wars Collection (In-Store Display)

I know a lot of you were waiting for this moment, so I'm happy to tell you that the CoverGirl x Star Wars collection has officially landed in stores! I know this collection is available online (I'll post links to where you can order at the end of this post), but this is the very first in-store sighting I've heard about!

Many thanks to reader Jennifer (@rockgirlmaxim84 on Instagram) for sharing the following pics of the in-store display she spotted at her local Meijer last week. I would imagine that this display will be hitting all of the usual drugstores very soon, since sometimes Meijer gets things a few weeks before other retailers.

A closer look, after the jump...

This is a free-standing, narrow floor display:

As you can see, in addition to the actual CoverGirl x Star Wars collection items (all of which you can see HERE), there are some repromotes from the permanent line in this display as well (lipsticks, mascaras, and eyeliners). 

Jennifer confirmed that the display at her Meijer only had 3 of the 10 mascaras, 1 of the 6 lipsticks, and 3 of the 6 nail polishes (only three nail polish shades in this collection are actually limited edition--you can see my explanation of what's going on with the nail polishes HERE). So I'm wondering if this will be the case as this collection starts to pop up at more retailers? I hope we all have an easy time finding what we want, because it would be a bummer if all stores only carry partial inventory and we find ourselves having to go from store to store to find everything we want. That would be particularly frustrating for the 10 mascaras, since we can't select which phrases we want if we order online.

Which brings me to online availability. If you caught my last post about this collection, then you know that has this collection available for purchase (link below for more info). But today, reader @emilysvanity on Instagram let me know that Ulta is now carrying the lipsticks! So here's a quick breakdown:

I just checked the Target site and nothing there (as of the time of this post). If you find any other online retailers that are carrying these products, I would love to hear from you. I would also love to hear from you if you have spotted this in-store display at other retailers!

Thanks again, Jennifer, for the great sighting and pics. I really appreciate it!


  1. Hopefully they come to CVS and Walgreens soon! Drove around to all the drugstores on Monday and there was no sign of them.

    Target only had the nail polishes, but weirdly enough they didn't have the Star Wars Logo on the caps. I even double checked the names of each nail polish to make sure that they were from collection and not from the regular line. There was no display either. They were put in next to the permanent nail polish collection.

  2. Thank you so much for this info! I'll be excited for more intel as it happens.

  3. I was at Target today and did not see them. I did see the Revlon no light gel polish( 2 pack, color and clear top coat) for 4.48( 70% off). I was able to use the 3.00 revlon MQ that was in sunday's paper along with the 5.00 off 20.00 target coupon. Made for some really inexpensive makeup( also got some maybelline with coupons).

  4. I really hope we get this collection here as well!

  5. I saw this at my meijer too and was so disappointed there was only one of the lipsticks. I'm definitely not motivated enough to hunt around for this collection if it is only out in bits and pieces at various stores.

  6. Still haven't seen a sign of it. Hopefully soon.

  7. I've been stalking *fingers crossed* for today.

  8. I've managed to find this collection at two of the Meijer stores near me. The other ones didn't have it out yet. I was really disappointed in the amount of product available. I'm guessing Meijer is only getting the "Dark Side" mascara as that's what I found. The lipstick was the dark purple one which was the one I wanted most.

    Considering all the hype I'm pretty disappointed in the overall availability for the specific mascaras.

  9. Can't find them in Target or Walgreens yet! Oh well

  10. I saw a tiny display of this at CVS in Pearland. CR 94/518 They had 3 mascaras and only the red polish and lipstick

  11. Just spotted at Walgreens. Display was full. 2 phrases each of mascara, and 4 colors of lipstick. Right now you get BOGO 1/2 off cover girl and 5,000 points back on your $20 or more CG purchase.
