CoverGirl History


Covergirl logo

CoverGirl was founded in 1961 by the Noxzema Chemical Company. Originally having only 6 products, the makeup was marketed as being a “medicated” makeup line with Noxzema’s face cream ingredients of menthol, camphor, and eucalyptus.

Jennifer O'NeilModel and actress Jennifer O’Neil, who was 15 in 1963, began working for CoverGirl as their model. Her 30-year product endorsement made CoverGirl the top-selling brand of makeup in the US. Cybill Shepard was another model for the company, advertising the more natural look of the 1960s and 1970s, establishing the “girl next door” look.

The company was once one of the largest global brands to conduct animal testing, but this is no longer true.

CoverGirl hired a male model for their makeup line and New York resident James Charles was recently named one of the 25 Most Influential People on the Internet by Time Magazine.  covergirl male model

The company was acquired by Coty, Inc., in 2016.

Covergirl is a good makeup product, however, your TV commercial ad with Maye Musk in my opinion is NOT a good model for “older” ladies. I feel that Ms. Musk looks hard with the makeup chosen for her in the TV ad and is not what one would expect regarding a “mature” woman. I’m 76, so I know something about getting older and looking well, but too much makeup can be a handicap for us mature ladies. We want to look attractive but not overly madeup. A natural look is far more attractive for us than too much makeup. Thank you for listening to my complaint. Try softening Ms. Musk’s makeup to see it that would help make her look better, and more natural.

I would like to be considered for your “OVER 50” Cover Girl campaign. II have seen 70 year old Maye Musk in your current advertisements. I called the corporate office but they could not provide any e-mail addresses to send pictures to for your consideration. I have an address of 350 Fifth Avenue, New York, New York 10018. Is that correct? And who would I address my request to so my letter and pictures get in the right hands. ? Thank you.

HI! I’m an exotic east indian woman who needs to be on the cover of Cover Girl makeup. I know if you saw my picture you would agree. You have different ethnic backgrounds of women and men but I’ve never seen an indian woman for Cover girl. I think I should be it! Please consider me. I can send pictures. Thank you!

You could increase your lip color sales (20% ?) If you displayed your products at eye level. Trying to bend down trying to read the color’s numbers / name is very difficult. Also on your website please include the product number for easier re ordering. Another sales increase potential. Easy fixes for increased profits and customer satisfaction.

I Love Cover Girl Products but I am tired of buying Cover Girl Eyebrow Pencils and they seem to break off in the middle of the Pencil causing me to sharpen the Pencil over and over again. Then the Pencil has disappeared. I have been using Cover Girl Pressed Powder, Eye Shadow, Liquid Make-up, Eyebrow Pencils since I was 16, I am now 64. Please find a way to fix this Problem. I have lost too much money over the Years. Thank you.
