Covergirl LipPerfection Lipcolor – review and swatches
Attention drugstore junkies, have I got a treat for you! Covergirl is at it again and this time pulled out the big guns with a 44 color lipstick release! I’ve been wanting to try these shades since our post about the Olympians favorite beauty products, and seeing Gracie Gold wearing Covergirl LipPerfection Lipcolor in the fabulous shade called “Hot.”
Let me tell you, not only are the colors gorgeous, but the formula is so creamy and smooth, you will think you’re wearing a high-end Dior. I am smitten with everything about Covergirl LipPerfection ($7.49) and will be hitting my local Target to raid the shelves for more.
Let me start by saying Covergirl has the lipstick tube perfected. They’ve been in the business long enough to know exactly how to house their lipsticks. The tubes are solid, twist open effortlessly, and show a great sample color at the base, so you know exactly what color you’re getting.
And the colors, wow, they really have some beautiful colors. You know how when you pick out lipstick sometimes the color looks so good in the tube and then just plain wrong on your lips? Well these colors have shades that translate well to the lip and almost every one I tried looked great.
Covergirl has divided the 44 colors into four shade families: Browns and Spices, Nudes/Corals/Reds, Pinks to Roses, and Lilacs/Mauves/Burgundies. There’s literally something for everyone and you will have no trouble finding a shade that you can’t live without. Let’s take a look at a few colors!
200 Sultry – medium rosy nude
270 Rush – medium peachy nude
308 Ravish – berry mauve
310 Smitten – berry plum
I tested two hues in the plums/mauves family – Ravish and Smitten – both are spot on and not too purple. They give a berry hint of color without looking goth.
327 Bombshell – magenta pink
350 Eternal – bright raspberry
405 Fairytale – medium coral
415 Siren – shimmering medium pink
Bombshell looks bold but is not over the top, and Eternal, a raspberry, is very wearable. Fairytale, an orange toned coral, is gorgeous but was the only one that didn’t look good on my lips. I’ve just never been able to wear coral.
The formula is a new surprise, for hidden in all of these fabulous colors is a moisturizing therapy to help improve lip condition. Made of an olive oil derived emollient, white tea, shea, avocado and aloe, Covergirl claims it will improve lip condition in just 7 days. I can definitely say after using them for a couple of weeks now, my lips have felt better than they have all summer. I wouldn’t say it replaces your favorite lip balm but this lipstick really does have an added moisturizing bonus. The formula is soft and creamy, and slides on lips easily.
• Wide variety of colors
• Moisturizing lip therapy complex
• Has a mild taste to it which some may not like
What I love most is that LipPerfection adds a moisturizing formula, while still providing a strong punch of color, which is so often sacrificed with other hydrating lipsticks. Plus, even though it’s super creamy it still has amazing staying power and was still visible at the end of the day. That is so rare for a lipstick and I am loving it! Hit your local store and give LipPerfection a try… your lips will thank you for it!
