COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick + Giveaway | #KissedByCOVERGIRL

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/P&G. All opinions are my own. 

The perfect pair! COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick and Rent the Runway.

With Christmas right around the corner, I’m already prepping for New Year’s Eve festivities. I’ve decided that this Cranberry Margarita will be our signature drink so now I need to plan my outfit and my makeup. We are getting pretty fancy this year and our NYE party has a glitz & glam theme so I’m grabbing a dress from Rent The Runway and rocking some Covergirl lipstick for the festivities. There isn’t much going on in my world that requires a stunning cocktail dress so Rent The Runway is my new BFF.

Styling a cocktail dress can be a little intimidating if like me, you don’t have a bunch hanging in your closet. I decided to share some favorites with you and I matched each dress choice with a cute bag and some COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick.  Give a girl the right lipstick and she can conquer the world.

COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick | Tantalize

These lipsticks are deliciously rich color infused with moisturizing shea butter for color that’s irresistibly craveable. Available in 36 shades from four color families: smooth nudes, rich reds, yummy plums, luscious pinks. I’ve been rocking the shade ‘Tantalize’ and I just love love love it. Simple and stunning.

COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick | Tantalize

This shade and the other 35 pretties are available for an everyday low price at your local Walmart! Online you’ll only have access to 9 of the shades so make sure you head to your local store to see all of the pretties in this collection. Go get you some, I’m excited to grab some other shades from this line. I usually stick to nudes so I have been forcing myself to step outside of my comfort zone and add some serious color into my life.

New Year's Eve Outfits

I am obsessing over these three dresses. Seriously, so pretty. I think I’m going with the third one for your NYE party, it’s just the perfect amount of glitz and glam, pair that with some cute shoes, a bag and COVERGIRL lipstick and you’re good to go. The first one is a gorgeous shift dress from Jill Stewart that retails for $388, but you can rent it for $98. Something I think that’s really cool about Rent The Runway is that you get to pick two sizes, just in case. Never knowing how certain things run, this is perfect for me. Especially if we’re wanting something to wear to a party or a wedding, I can come here and rent it and know that I will be comfortable no matter what. The second dress is a Carlos Miele that retails for $675 and can be rented for $30. And the third, my favorite, the ever so gorgeous Mark & James by Badgley Mishka dress retails for $385 but can be rented for $55. The New York Times calls Rent The Runway “A Netflix model for Haute Couture” and they are so right. It’s just SO easy.

To make it even easier, you have a chance to win a COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick and a $50 Rent The Runway gift card. Just enter below, good luck! If you don’t want to wait, don’t forget you can get new COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipsticks at everyday low prices at your local Walmart. Convenient and easy – Get all your beauty needs in one shopping trip. Or shop the latest from COVERGIRL online at Walmart.com.
