Thank you to Kroger and CoverGirl for sponsoring this review. While CoverGirl provided me with a $30 gift card to purchase CoverGirl products at Kroger stores, the opinions I've expressed here are solely my own, represent my honest viewpoint, and not that of CoverGirl, Kroger, or Proctor & Gamble. I am making no claims about the products, just expressing my thoughtful opinion. Clever Girls Collective supports Blog With Integrity.
Regular readers here will probably remember that about six weeks ago I made a lot of big changes in my shopping habits, especially when it came to using coupons and where I shopped. Up until then I have not been an avid Kroger shopper but thanks to some encouragement from my friends I have seen then light, and now I pour over the weekly Kroger circular and make at least one trip there a week. My Kroger card has been a huge help in saving me a lot of money recently.
So I was thrilled when I got the chance to check out Kroger's fabulous selection of beauty products from CoverGirl, a brand I know and love. I've been using CoverGirl products since I was a teenager and have never stopped, always having at least a few of their products in my routine makeup arsenal. For this review I was provided with a $30 gift card to purchase a few CoverGirl products of my choosing at Kroger. What really surprised me was how far I was able to stretch that $30!
What I discovered when I headed to my recently upgraded Kroger store in Katy was huge signs in front of the CoverGirl makeup display that declared all of the CoverGirl products would be 25% off with the use of a Kroger card. That's a huge instant savings! I was able to put together one entire cosmetic look with just that $30, purchasing ALL the essentials for a complete beauty routine. Here's what I picked up:
Foundation: Aqua CG Smoothers in Creamy Natural $6.13
Blush: CG Cheekers in Natural Shimmer $3.22
Eyeliner: Perfect Point Plus in Charcoal $3.90
Eye Shadow (with brush!) CoverGirl Exact Eyelights in Radiant Blues $5.99
Mascara: Lash Blast Volume in Very Black $5.99
Lips: CoverGirl Lipslicks in Cutie $3.74
The total for all that was only $28.97! That's without using any coupons either, the Kroger club card alone saved me $9.67!
That's a full face of makeup. I might normally also add my CoverGirl translucent powder to set everything and keep the shine away as well. I wish I could show you my finished look with these products, but for legal reasons I can't. If you run into me in real life or view my shopping haul videos after this post though, you will certainly see all these wonderful makeup products in action. I'm a big fan of CoverGirl products and you already know I'm a huge fan of saving money being fiscally responsible.
What about you, have you ever shopped at Kroger for CoverGirl or other makeup products? Which is your favorite product by CoverGirl?
