It seems like every makeup line is coming out with a tinted lip balm lately. As I'm a lip balm addict I just can't help but try them all! My take on Cover Girl's Smoochies:
- in comparison to other brands the color selection is wide
- it's moisturizing
- it goes on smooth
- with my favorite shade Sweet Tweet the colour payoff is sheer and natural looking
- some of the shades are more opaque than others and it's impossible to tell which ones are more opaque without using them on your lips. One shade which I thought would be a sheer rose ended up being very dark and opaque and therefore unflattering on me.
- somewhat expensive in comparison to other similar brands, where I live these usually go for $7 or $8 whereas other tinted balms are about $4 - $5.
- the neon coloured packaging annoys me somewhat
- the balm does not twist all the way down into the tube making it easy to nick the balm with the cap repeatedly
Overall it's a good lip balm, I definitely prefer this one over other similar brands that I've tried.
not that hydrating, barely adds colour, and the glitter is really out there, like a little girl playing with sparkles. The packaging is plastic and feels cheep. for a better product for your money, just go with the burts bees tinted lip balm
I bought a couple of these and I really like them. They are nice neutral balmy type lip glosses. I have #215 which is a rosey color that I wear on black/gray wardrobe days and another one that is a nude/beigey color that looks good with earth tone wardrobe days. I put them right on par with the L'Oreal Color riche Balms which I also like.
I bought this from target for like five dolars. It gave me a pretty, glossy shimmer. It did work well as a moisturizer but nothing amazing. For 5 dolars, definitely worth it and gives you good bang for you buck
I bought one of these today. They do not feel anything like a balm on my lips, which are on the dry side. Didn't apply evenly and looked like old lipstick and felt cheap. The colors are nice, but that's about it. Won't repurchase.
The smoochies have a really nice colour variety, unlike the baby lips by maybelline that have a small colour selection. Now for packaging, in my opinion i find them extremely cute & fun, although they have a "cheaper " look than other lip sticks in the drugstore. I LOVE the formula, their smooth, pigmented & extremely hydrating! Would repurchase
I really love the color! The only bad thing about it is that it comes off through out the day on food and leaves a mark on glass cups. Also, I wouldn't use this as a daily moisturizing lip Balm for dry lips. More of a touch up of color thats more moisturizing then lip stick but not as much as Chapstick.
Love these! They are glossy like the Revlon lip butters. I have two shades; text me and luv u. They are both pretty on and very flattering. Highly recommend!
These are smooth, moisturizing, and have a great colour payoff. I like them over baby lips because they're more pigmented and they're actually moisturizing. Baby lips dry out my lips. These colours look great on the lips while baby lips sits on top and essentuate every dry flakes on the lips. They're thicker than baby lips but have more slip than eos lip balms. I have 3 colours. The only con is that the lip balm doesn't roll all the way down so you have to be careful not to nick it when closing it. #luv u | #text me | #2 cute. #luv u is a light to medium toned pinkish mauve. It's so pretty and so natural. It's very wearable since its like a my lips but better colour. #text me is the darkest out of the 3. It's really pigmented and its kind of like a deeper red but not too deep. #2 cute I only bought because I wanted something deep and burgundy-red for the fall. This in the tube does not look like it would suit lighter complexions like mine. But this is nowhere near dark. It's actually lighter than #text me which looks a lot lighter than #2 cute in the tubes. #2 cute is a PERFECT light to medium toned coral. Another plus is that these smell (and taste!) like Jolly Ranchers! Mmmm I'm definitely getting all of the colours even the ones that look like they wouldn't suit me. I mean #2 cute turned out to barely be a medium toned colour while it looked really dark in the tube so I'm excited to try the rest. I'm buying #smooch or #tweet me next
I got the shade Smooch 265 and since the packaging colors looked like Maybelline's Great Lash...I was sucked in. Stupid me, always getting products without looking at reviews first. A friend of mine actually recommended this to me, so of course I got it! It's a nice neutral pink...with horrible, cheap-looking glitter. No, not a nice pinch of shimmer. Noticeable glitter that you would wear when you were 6. I get that they were trying to get to the younger age group, but the glitter totally made me regret buying this. It was $7 for me, and that's really expensive for the quality of this product. I can find better quality products that are cheaper than this.
- Nice color for everyday wear.
- Not extremely moisturizing, but it gets my lips soft.
- Colors make it easy to find in your bag/backpack.
- Wears off super easy.
- Flakes and gets into the creases of my lips.
- Disgusting looking glitter.
- Glitter transfers all over hands and face. ONLY the glitter.
- Packaging makes some product rub off onto the tube and cap.
- Smells like berry medicine. YUCK!
- Tastes a bit plastic-y.
I will finish this, but will not buy it again. If you're going to wear this, make sure to exfoliate and apply chapstick beforehand!
