Forget MAC, get these Lip Perfection lipsticks by Cover Girl!
These are so creamy and they last for-evah! They don't dry out my lips and they come in a boatload of pretty colors. What's there not to love...oh..they are also pretty near dirt cheap when you use coupons or get them BOGO or at Walmart.
Go get yourself one or two.
I love this line of lipsticks! I have one in 'Sultry', which is a medium pink nude and has a very opaque finish. The colour on my lips is the exact same as Revlon's Colorburst lipstick in 'Rosy Nude' (which I also love). The formula is quite moisturizing and I don't need to wear a lip-balm underneath. It is creamy/smooth, gliding easily on my lips and this shade is one of the few "nudes" that I can wear without washing me out. I like the packaging too - very sleek, and is a step-up from previous lipsticks by CoverGirl. Definitely recommend and will try out other shades.
What a fantastic lipstick! So many others I've tried have been much too sticky or dry or not true to the claimed color. I LOVE this one, I have it in Hot Passion (305). It's like putting on very nice lip balm (the formula is silky smooth), and it's very pigmented. I only need two coats to achieve the bright red color I wanted. This is VERY pink-based. The first coat I put on was an extremely vibrant fuschia, so I applied it again to get the color Drew Barrymore has -- exactly -- in her ads for the product. Side note #1: since it is very thick and so vibrantly colored, you cannot make mistakes with this! Side note #2: It stays put for a good 4-5 hours, but fades into a fine bright stain. Some people may not like that, so it could do well to reapply (I did). OVERALL: GREAT!
I have this in 2 shades. Divine and Temptation, and i LOVE them both. This is a great quality lipstick. The color lasts all day too. I actually like these better than MAC lipsticks. I'll be trying more shades. Highly recommend. Pigmentation is great, long-lasting- what more could you want in a lipstick!Oh & they don't dry out my lips.
I would like to say that while I love lipstick, it does generally not love me. Too long have I suffered from a lipstick rut. I woke up one day and decided that I will suffer no more and off I adventured to my nearest drugstore to peruse the cosmetic aisles hoping to find a glimmer of hope to solve my lipstick woes.
And I stumbled upon these and I was in love. Seriously, these are amazing. I bought one, went home and tried it, and I bought a bunch more the next day. It is effortless to apply them. They're nice and creamy without being too thick or slippery. They're very pigmented, one swipe and you have all the color you need but you could easily build up the color if you wanted to. It's long lasting and fades into a nice stain on the lips, which I like but I could see how others might not.
I love the selection of colors, I am so tempted to buy every one of them.
Overall, a great lipstick, if I ever run out of any of them ( I doubt I will) I will definitely repurchase.
I normally don't like lipstick, but this brand made me fall in love with lipstick! The lipstick is pretty pigmented. The color goes on richly and has staining power. It lasted all day, even after I ate and drank water. At the end of the day, my lips were stained from the lipstick (in a good way). I'd definitely buy this again!
I have this in Hot (bright red), Burn (dark berry red), Soulmate (berry red) and Fairytale. All look really bright, but go well with my skin tone. I am a warm, Light 4.
I am NC15 for reference : )
I own Delight (watermelon pink-red), Temptation (golden orange), and Dazzle (pink-purple). Dazzle reminds me alot of Maybelline's Born With It but less opaque.
I have tried alot of the colors in this line, but for my skin tone, these are my 3 favorites. As a NC15 leaning neutral, orange is still hard for me to pull off, and most corals I can't do, but this one is HG for the orange lip this summer.
This formula is very moisturizing, and I find that if you blot, it creates a great stain for the rest of the evening :)
Most of the colors in the line did little for me, but they are very bold and bright and unique, so maybe others will find favorites among them.
I bought this in #340 Entwined. The formula is nice. Fairly creamy and smooth, easy to apply. The lipstick is HIGHLY pigmented so there is no room for error at all. And it acts like a stain. As many others have commented, it stains your lips pretty badly. It fades in the middle of the lips but leaves a harsh dark ring around the outisde. So for that reason I would buy this again only in lighter, more neutral shades. But a fresh application looks great, just doesn't look so great after a few hours. I had to constantly touch up the spot in the middle of the bottom lip. It is very difficult to remove from your lips. Overall, I'd say this is above average but nothing spectacular.
I have so far bought three shades of this product: Tempt, Eternal and Heavenly. The first two are a little dark for my taste and not for everyday wear, for me. But I really liked the way it felt on my lips; very smooth like the NatureLuxe color gloss balm which I LOVE...so I bought the Heavenly which was recommended on the website as a color that is supposed to work for my hair/eye/skincolor...it looks nude brown/mauvey pink but goes on I can see the orangey pink on the outside of my lips (the bleeding). But the color was subtle enough this time around. After a few hours of wear my lips started tingling and burning a bit, like I had put on mentholated chapstick. They also started feeling really dry. The lipstick had long worn off. :( Sadly this will be my last purchase, not because I don't like it but I believe I'm simply allergic to this product.
I got two Lip Perfection lipsticks, one in Kiss and one in Hot, from the Nudes/Corals/Reds section on the recommendation of the CoverGirl website. The lipsticks glide on moist and stay moist as long as I'm wearing them. They do come off rather easily when I eat or drink, but the tubes are well designed and easy to tuck in my purse. The cap never comes off unless I want it to come off. I adore the Kiss. It's a peachy nude hue with a touch of sparkle to it. It goes with nearly any outfit I put together. I've been getting a lot of wear out of that one. I'm personally less fond of the Hot, but other people have complimented me on it. It's a brown-based red, very strong against my fair skin, so I need to be mentally prepared to work bold lips when I put that on. All in all I recommend the Lip Perfection line without reservations. The recommendations on the website are pretty solid too.
