So most of us know that there’s a new Star Wars movie coming out at the end of this year, and it’s gonna be huge. Equally as huge? The excitement over the collaboration between CoverGirl and Star Wars to create an out-of-this-world makeup collection to celebrate the new movie!
The collection consists of mascaras, lipsticks and nail polishes— 19 products total. I was able to get my hands on a handful so I could show you a sneak peak before their official release this week on September 4th.
The mascaras from the CoverGirl Star Wars collection are re-packaged tubes of The Super Sizer— a mascara I’ve mentioned numerous times on this blog because I really love the formula. They come in regular and waterproof, and there are ten collectable tubes, each with a different Star Wars quote on them. The brush has an inverted tapered shape to fan out the corners and coat each lash with volume.
What I was most excited about in the collection were the lipsticks. In the drugstore, we rarely see funky colors outside of the mainstream trends. CoverGirl took a leap with this collection including some really neat shades fit for droids and stormtroopers. Only two of the six in the collection have shade names, the rest are labelled as numbers.
Shade #10 is a super sparkly silver. You could wear it alone, as I did in the picture above, but it doesn’t build up to full coverage, so I think it’d be best if you used it to turn a matte lipstick into a frosted one.
Shade #20 is a frosty lilac shade that I’m totally digging. It’s much more opaque than the silver lipstick, but does take a little bit of work to get applied evenly. I think this is a fierce shade for those who have the guts to wear it! You could also probably layer this on top of another shade as well.
The most wearable of the three that I have is the shade #40 Droid, which is a sheer orange with a ton of gold glitter packed into it. The shimmer definitely makes it stand out while the toned down orange looks like a more normal lipstick shade.
The consistency of the shades are very glossy… slippy even. They don’t quite “dry down” or set, so you’ll have to be careful about smearing. Especially since these shades contain so much shimmer, it can be easy for the sparkles to end up on other parts of your face.
I really love what CoverGirl did when adapting the movie into a makeup collection, and I’m sure many others will too. With that said, you’re not going to want to hesitate picking these up if you see them in a store near you— they’re bound to sell out quickly! Keep your eyes peeled for them in drugstores near you this month, they’re already available on Drugstore.com.

Wow! They must have been waiting on stock. Good to know though, because I bet people who haven’t been able to grab them in store can now get them 🙂 Thanks for the heads up!
How fun! I hope I can grab the lipsticks.
Love these! You know i love the sparkly pink and droid looks cool too.
Hmm… those are some interesting shades for sure. I wish they had stepped up a bit in the packaging but love StarWars nonetheless
Interesting shades! I don’t think I’ll purchase them, but they look pretty cool 🙂
These are so neat!
I need to find these locally! Even if they look like dog womp on me, I must have them and I know that I love the mascara…
I’m totally geeking out about these. I hope I can find Droid and Stormtrooper!
Even if those lippies won’t look good on me, I still want to try
The products fit the theme perfectly. I can’t wait to see the other items.
Droid is very pretty but I don’t want glitter on my face so I will probably skip. Thanks for the honest review.
I will buy them because I love Star Wars and Makeup so it is a win win hehe
The orange is the best
Interesting lipsticks. I likely wouldn’t wear them, but they sure look fun!

I want everything in this collection! I love Star Wars so much, but I have to say my fave is A New Hope!
This is really a fun collection. I didn’t think I’d like it but it really is cute. And great for Halloween that is comin up.
I like Droid. I’d definitely wear that. Looks great on you!
