So back in August I reported on the U.S launch of a Star Wars CoverGirl collection and it sure got a lot of geek girls pretty excited, it was a massive collection of a range of colours inspired by looks created by the awesome Pat McGrath. Well, I’m pleased to say that we finally have news on the U.K launch, so read on to find out more of what’s in store and how to get hold of this super limited collection.
So yea, that’s what we’re getting. The U.S CoverGirl collection saw 8 mascaras with quotes on the tubes, 6 lipsticks and 3 nail colours with colours ranging from safe red to metallic silver. The U.K counterpart is coming this week from MaxFactor and all we’re getting is two lipsticks and one mascara.
The lipsticks are in shades Berry and Gold for £7.99 and look like decent shades and part of what must be leftovers from the CoverGirl launch. The mascara however, is just a repackaged version of MaxFactor’s False Lash Effect for £10.99. Disappointing I know, but at least we’re getting something.
What’s even more of a pain is this launch is sneaking into the UK for a one day only limited edition sale exclusive to Boots.com so we won’t have the chance to swatch in stores. The official release says the range will be landing on the Boots website in the “early hours” of Thursday 26th November and will stay on sale until they sell out, which although it’s a meagre offering won’t be around for long. So yes, if you’re keen, set your alarms and get ready to ninja the MaxFactor page of Boots, personally I’m not going to bother, but I know some of you will be keener than me.
