Star Wars, it’s time for me to come clean. I’m just not that into you. My ex-boyfriend would cry reading this admission because when we first bonded over 1980s vampire flicks and similarly nerdy experiences, I’m pretty sure he assumed I was a fan of the famous sci-fi franchise also. While I’ve never cared to get into the epic “space opera” created by George Lucas, I am of course excited for the film series’ new themed make-up line from CoverGirl.
The line makes its debut next month in preparation for fans to master their beauty looks before the December release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Celebrity make-up artist Pat McGrath is behind the limited edition line that features three nail polishes, six lipsticks and 10 mascaras, all named after famous lines from the films. The last time the brand ventured into this kind of territory was their “Capitol Couture” line in conjunction with Hunger Games: Catching Fire in 2013.
Who knows? I just might become a Star Warrior (I went to one of the franchise’s forums and saw that’s what fans call themselves, so don’t shoot me if I’m wrong!) after all.
