From a Galaxy Far Far Away…


One of this year’s most anticipated theatrical releases, Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, has now even captured my attention with the limited-edition Star Wars-inspired CoverGirl collection!

CoverGirl asks its beauty queens, are you on the light side… or the dark side? The collection includes out of this world mascaras, vampy nail polishes and shiny futuristic lipsticks.

CoverGirl Global Creative Design Director Pat McGrath created six amazing new looks and two in particular to promote the campaign: Droid and Stormtrooper. Droid, inspired by C-3PO offers a glimmering look that includes a stunning gold highlight, gold shimmer lipstick and metallic gold nails.

Stormtrooper on the other hand focusses on the monochromatic look and harsh angles of the Stormtrooper’s legendary armor. This look also features a deep maroon lip as a nod to the dark side.

In this collection are also 10 mascaras featuring classic quotes from your favorite characters including Yoda, Princess Leia and Obi-Wan Kenobi. As well as five new futuristic lipsticks in Dark Purple, Gold, Red, Lilac, Silver and Nude.

This limited edition collaboration will go on sale online on September 4th and at mass retailers in mid-September! Essential for any super fans out there, I can already see recreations of Pat McGrath’s looks being a big hit for the release of Star Wars The Force Awakens in December!

What about you? Will you be joining the light or the dark side?
