Covergirl officially launched their Star Wars cosmetics collection on Force Friday, but shoppers reported problems with trying to order on-line. Covergirl acknowledged the technical glitches, and posted the following on their Instagram account –
We’re so sorry about the delays with our online presale. We know many of you have been looking for the products both online and in stores. Good news is you can now pre-order select products via covergirl.com, and the entire collection will be available for purchase online and in stores later this month. Thanks for sticking with us!
Searching for ‘Star Wars’ on the Covergirl website lists the following ‘Star Wars Limited Edition’ products (prices may vary depending on retailer) –
- Coloricious Lipstick – US$6.99
– 6 colours – Silver 10, Lilac 20, Red 30, Gold 40, Dark Purple 50, Nude 70
- Outlast Nail Polish – US$5.49
– 6 colours – Fury 93, Nuclear 97, Mutant 101, Red Revenge 180, Nemesis 195, Speed of Light 200
- Super Sizer Dark Side Mascara – US$6.85
– 1 colour – very black 800
- Super Sizer Waterproof Light Side Mascara – US$6.85
– 1 color – very black 825
The mascaras feature 10 different quotes – 5 for the ‘Dark Side’ and 5 for the ‘Light Side’ – personally this seems an odd choice, as I would much prefer to collection different colours of lipsticks/nail polish than 10 black mascaras. A lightsaber-themed mascara tube would have been much more interesting – not sure why the packaging has minimal Star Wars influence (besides the logo), when their ‘inspired looks’ are so bold. In any case, I’m really hoping stock will be available here in New Zealand soon!
- Dark Side Quotes –
“I will finish what you started” – “There has been an awakening” – “Indeed you are powerful” – “You will meet your destiny” – “Immune to the light”
- Light Side Quotes –
“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.”
