I will start this review by simply stating that I love this lipstick! I only have two in Covergirl Lip Perfection line, but I hope to own more. I believe I counted 44 shades on Covergirl’s website.
The wear time of this lipstick is great… especially if you use the apply-a-coat-blot-apply-another-blot-technique. It isn’t too drying, which is a huge plus for me, since my lips always seem to be peeling off my face. One little warning that I must draw your attention to: this stains your lips. I know that could be a deal-breaker for some people… but I find that desirable in a lip product. I like to know that the color will be there for a decent amount of time.
Another possible deal-breaker for some would be the smell. It has a terrible lipstick-y, flowery, fake scent. This doesn’t bother me as much because the scent doesn’t seem to linger, and the formula is fantastic. If you are incredibly sensitive to smells, this is definitely something to keep in mind.
The color is a bright, pinky-coral shade. It is a cream finish with no shimmer of any kind. I have seen several places online that this lipstick is thought to be a dupe for MAC Crosswires. Unfortunately, I do not own any MAC lipsticks at this point… so I cannot compare them personally.
I would definitely recommend this lipstick! If you aren’t loving the color, check out a different color in the line… there are plenty of options for everyone!
Here’s a post on another Covergirl Lipstick that I love: Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Divine .
