Review: Cover Girl Lip Perfection Lipstick

My mom always told me when I was growing up that I should play up my lips and wear lipstick (or gloss) more often. But until the last few months, I've stayed firmly planted in the Aquaphor-only camp, barring special occasions. And now, I have no idea why I ever did that! (Shh, don't tell my mom, but I guess she was RIGHT all along!) Anyways, I've branched out the last few months, and I love how quickly bright lips make me feel pulled together, even if I am too lazy don't have time to do much else. 

I do have a pet peeve about lipstick, however, and it's part of the reason I didn't wear it very often before. My lips tend to dry out really easily, lipstick tends to dry them out more, and let's face it, flaky lips and bright lipstick is an icky combination. 

Enter Cover Girl Lip Perfection lipstick. The last time I was at the drugstore, I decided I'd buy a little lipstick as a pick-me-up. Since I usually wear more pinks, I decided to mix it up and buy a bright reddish coral color (Flame) and try it out. 

Consider me a Cover Girl convert. My lips felt softer a couple hours after I had put it on, no Aquaphor needed. And as an added bonus, it stayed on for hours and hours- I washed my face, and there was still color on my lips! It wasn't as super bright after a couple hours, but it faded to a really pretty stained color that I love. The best part? It's seven dollars. Sold! I think I may have to pick up a few more colors! 

What's your favorite lipstick?

  2. I don't really wear lipstick or lipgloss.. but my favorite gloss is by Maybelline. I've been looking for a bright pink lipstick for a while, but I haven't found the right shade yet.. :)

  3. now that's a great colour on you!! Love it!
    I love neon pink right now :D
    Come follow my blog sweetie :)

  4. I hardly ever wear lipstick but when I do it's usually those covergirl lipstains, which last forever. The only bad thing is that they seem to dry out your lips a bit. Sometimes I use them like a lipliner and smudge it inwards before it dries, then put chapstick over it and it looks more natural. They're awesome because you put them on like a magic marker!
