CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipcolors - Swatches and Review

When I was younger, I owned a few CoverGirl lipsticks that I absolutely loved. A frosty pink (you know you had one too!) and a shimmery beige. They weren't particularly pigmented, or moisturizing - this is one of the reasons I was impressed with CoverGirl's current line of lipsticks, the LipPerfection Lipcolors.

The line has a wide range of colors, and is incredibly pigmented. I tested out the following shades for this review.

First off, the packaging is quite nice. I like that you can see the corresponding color of the lipstick at the bottom of the tube - it makes it a lot easier to search for a specific shade in a hurry. However, the bullet of the lipstick sticks a little bit out of the tube which makes it easy to smudge it when you put the lid back on.

Left to right: Hot, Bombshell, Ravish, Tempt and Crème, a few swipes each.

They are not drying at all, but I do not find them moisturizing either. The pigmentation of these is quite good - Hot and Bombshell are seriously vibrant on the lips. Even more muted shades such as Ravish and Crème look pigmented on the lips. They also last quite long on the lips - shades like Hot and Bombshell gave me a good 4-5 hours of wear.

My only real negative about these? The taste. It's has a sort of artificially sweet taste that's hard to describe. I honestly can't stand it - it's too strong for me. Some don't taste as much as others, but Crème was the worst offender. I didn't notice any taste with Hot, and Bombshell's wasn't too bad.

  1. haaaa! love the colors :)

  2. Nice shades! I use to have a CoverGirl lippie, (that pink frosty one!) But I'm not one for frosty lips anymore, but I haven't ventured into their new lip products yet. They seem to be stepping up their lippie game!

  3. I've accumulated quite the stash since joining Beauty United and pulled out a few recently to wear. Like you, I'm pretty impressed with the pigment levels and how well they wear.
