COVERGIRL’s #GirlsCan program

I was given products in this post for review.  I was not paid to write this review.  All opinions are my own

COVERGIRL’s #GirlsCan program

As a woman I can't tell you the amount of times I have heard that I can't do something because I am a girl!  My dad had a construction business a few years ago and my cousins didn't want to let me in on it.  They kept saying she is a girl she can't work on houses!  I showed them though I happened to be the best out of them.  Well not as good as my dad, but I always picked up what he was teaching us the quickest.  I never left "being a girl" hold me back and to truthful I resented the fact that the term was ever used.
When I read about the Covergirls girls can Program I just knew KNEW I had to help promote!

This year marks the second year kickoff of COVERGIRL’s #GirlsCan program, a movement with a mission to empower young women to overcome barriers, break boundaries and be the next generation to rock the world!  
COVERGIRL launched an truly empowering video content series produced by journalist and documentarian Soledad O'BrienThe series is available to view on the COVERGIRL YouTube channel at
The content series features powerful stories of four women who have faced challenges, forged ahead and defied the odds to achieve their dreams, setting an example for many other women to follow. The pioneering women featured in the series include:
COVERGIRL Becky G, an inspiring young Latina rap star, who has broken through on the charts in a male-dominated industry
Geena Rocero, a transgender woman who has not only graced the cover of top magazines and ads for fashion brands, but is also an entrepreneur with her own production company
Tina Garnanez, a former female military veteran coping with PTSD, who fought for years in the military, where women make up just 15% of the population
Rochelle Ballantyne, college student, and currently the closest female in the United States to achieving the chess title of “Master” —there are only 50 female masters out of 846 in the US!

Isn't that amazing!?  I don't know about you, but this message hits home for me.  We are women/girls and we can do ANYTHING!  We can do EVERYTHING!  I love that Covergirl is supporting great causes such as Girls Who Code, and Soledad O’Brien + Brad Raymond Starfish Foundation.  

It is with great pride that I represent Covergirl here on my blog today! 
Now you may not know this, but I am a dork.  Okay lets not fib, if you even read one of my posts you know this about me.  I am quirky and always silly.  It should be no surprise that when I found out Covergirl offered a Star Wars collection I all but bounced off my computer chair!!  Covergirl + Star Wars!!  
I can't wait until Christmas for the new movie!  In the meantime I can totally rock the Star Wars look with the 4 items I was sent.

Unleash the light within or dare to discover your dark side with a Colorlicious Lipstick shade from our STAR WARS Limited Edition Collection. 
This deliciously rich lipstick is infused with shea butter for long-lasting color in 3 ‘light side’ shades and 3 ‘dark side’ shades. Discover all 6 limited-edition colors.
 I was sent both the lilac color and red.  A light and dark color!  That way I can switch up which side I want to be on!  Come one I am a woman some days I feel like playing for the dark side ;)
I love how super smooth these lip colors are and the fact they are long lasting.
Also the colors a rich and popping. 

Now that my lips look good it is time to focus on my the eyes.  I was sent

Each has a Light Side Quotes on the side
 “May the force be with you.”
“Do. Or do not try. There is no try.” 
“You’re my only hope.” 
“I feel the good in you.” 
“Luminous beings are we.”

My said "you're my only hope."

So besides my ex-stream fan girl moment, I wanted to mention my lashes are full, thick and look amazing!  I didn't noticed any clumping.  It went on easy and came off with a simple warm water/makeup remover washing.

Okay we covered the lips and eyes!  Time to talk about nails!
