Covergirl's new line of lipsticks does not feel anything like what you would expect from a drugstore brand. It is lightweight, goes on silky smooth and has amazing high pigment color. It is a guilt-free indulgence and can instantly pick up your look and/or your mood. If you like a matte-looking lipstick, you'll like Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick.
Looking for a bright pink color, which will be hot for Spring 2011, I found Spellbound (325). Worn with simple make-up on the eyes and cheeks, let your lips be the focal point with this fun, bold color. Eternal (350), another bright pink suitable for a darker skin-tone, was featured in the March issue of People StyleWatch. With a price point of anywhere from $5.50 to $7 something, depending on the store and whether it is on sale or not, you can't go wrong by choosing Covergirl Lip Perfection over other more expensive brands in a similar shade. Since a bright pink is not an everyday color, for most of us anyway, you won't feel bad spending the less than $10. on a lipstick you may only wear for a season or only a couple of times. Me, I'm gonna wear out this look. I love it on me!
As far as shades you can wear every day, there are 44 shades to choose from four groups. If you like a matte look, this is one I would stock up on. If not, you may find a couple of shades suitable to your skin tone for those days and/or nights you prefer a matte lip. For a quick, put-together look, I like to wear reds or a dark lip and little else. I like the shade Hot Passion (305) from this line, perfect for those days I don't have the time to put on a full face.
I've read other reviews of this new line, and the packaging was frowned upon. I actually like the sleek, unpretentious design. The packaging may not be luxurious, but the product in it is luxurious to me. It feels as indulgent as Lancôme and Estee Lauder. Another thing that may be criticized about Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick is that it has a taste. Some say vanilla. I can't quite pin-point the taste, but tastes like something synthetic to me. It doesn't bother me though and doesn't taste bad. It maybe tastes like a futuristic perfume? I can't pin-point it. You tell me... Let me know when you pick up a tube or two of Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick.
