CoverGirl’s The Infinite campaign pays tribute to consumers
After making waves for introducing its most inclusive line of foundation, TruBlend Matte Made, CoverGirl has unveiled a new campaign that showcases the inspiration behind the line.
The brand’s The Infinite movement is a tribute to everyone who spoke up about what they wanted and needed in a foundation, which was a product that was not just available in an extensive range but also catered to various unique skin needs, the company said.
In addition, the beauty company also unveiled a new film that serves as a tribute to those who spoke up and helped bring the product to life. Hundreds of women are showcased in the short film, alongside current brand ambassadors Issa Rae, Maye Musk and Shelina Moreda.
The campaign showcases women from all walks of life and encourages them to use makeup as a powerful tool of self-expression. The film concludes with a credit list that personally thanks some of those who inspired the foundation.
CoverGirl’s TruBlend Matte Made Foundation comes in a four-shade range and is available for purchase Walmart for the suggested retail price of $9.

Starco, the brand behind innovative consumer packaged goods, has developed a new brand of sunscreen that covers those hard-to-reach areas.

It gives us tremendous pride to enable a healthy and convenient change to an everyday behavior that simply improves people’s lives.”

“The name Honu refers to the majestic Hawaiian green sea turtle,” David Dreyer, a member of the Company’s Brand Advisory Board, said. “Just like the Honu, our innovative package design provides you with a protective shell of your own.”
The brand’s sunscreen is now available for purchase at Walmart locations nationwide. Further product information can be found on the company’s website.
