It’s a fact— well, in our brains, anyway— that there’s literally NO such thing as having too much makeup. This is especially true if the products happen to be affordable, convenient (as in, you can buy them at any drugstore within a five-mile radius) and actually work. All three of these vital qualities collided earlier this week in New York City at COVERGIRL’s BeautyREMIX event, where editors, bloggers, and even COVERGIRL faces like DJ duo NERVO and Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara experimented with the newest collection of eyeliners, mascaras, foundations, and nail polish. And because we were there too, we can say firsthand that summer 2013 is about to get really gorgeous, really soon.
The massive event was a epic beauty trial run, set up with different stations that each doled out various makeup “experiences.” You could go (almost) au naturale with the CC Creams or Clean Whipped Foundations, crank up the drama with the Flamed Out mascaras and eyeshadows, or get temporary inked with the new Ink It! eyeliner. After all, test-driving the products is the most important part of the entire process, and this event was one-stop shopping at its best. There’s no better proof of the makeup’s staying power than NERVO, who hit the decks to blast their single “Hold On,” AND look totally freshfaced and pretty the whole time. Better clean out your beauty drawer…the products hit drugstores in July!
