Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks (Review and Swatches)

Saturday, May 17, 2014

One of my favorite lipstick formulas are ones that glide on like balm, sticks like matte lipstick, and has a soft creamy finish. I recently found that in Covergirl's Lip Perfection Lipsticks.

I have always believed that splurging on makeup base like powder or liquid foundation is a must, but you can scrimp on other products like blush, eyeshadow, and lipsticks. Not so cheap that you'll get allergies, but a reasonable price that work just as well as high-end ones. Although there is no problem in wanting to own luxury items, but there are now products available in the market that work just as well for women in a budget but still get top-notch quality.

I have been wanting to try Covergirl's Lipsticks but I never got around to purchasing one for myself, so imagine my surprise when they sent me a whole bunch to try! They sent me warm and cool shades, and it's just awesome.

I am loving the no-nonsense packaging. It's simple, and chic. But not flimsy. Ya'll know how I feel about flimsy, cheap packaging. I like that the shade is transparent so you can see the shade without having to open the tube when digging around in your purse.

I won't be biased and judge which one I like best before I even try them (Hot Pasion!), so let's begin.



The texture is amazing, it's just as good as most luxury brands out there. It's soft and creamy and glides on like balm, but has the staying power of matte lipsticks, but the finish is a soft shine.

The pigment is very high! The colors are true with the bottom of the plastic tube that's why it's easy to choose which one you think will suit you best. I have high acidity on my lips so shades tend to be different on me, but these shades stayed true on my lips.

Here are the actual swatches on my lips:

Delish Regal is a very nude lip shade that is for women who love the no-makeup makeup look. I love that it doesn't look ashy or like concealer, it has a beautiful light beige undertone that looks great even worn on its own.

This beautiful shade is a bright pink lipstick that you see a lot now a days. I will never get tired of pink lipsticks. I was actually quite surprised on how this pink lipstick appeared on my lips because on the tube it looked a little bit pink-coral.

Fairytale Conte de Fees
Just as I suspected, this shade is my favorite! Hehehe... Hot Pasion is definitely my current favorite shade! I love that it slightly has a blue undertone on my lips that makes it look slightly berry which is not too harsh for the summer. I can just layer is with a deeper red like MAC's Viva Glam I and it turns darker.

Heavenly Paradisiaque is a nude-pink lipstick for the perfect blushing pink lipstick. For women who are not that brave yet in wearing bright colors!

This is my second favorite. I love this orchid shade that brightens up the face! I have always loved fuchsia-orchid shades ever since I saw it on Claudine Barretto and a different shade on Anna Palabyab-Rufino.
