Covergirl Lip Perfection Swatches and Review




So, these lovely little lippies came into my life about three months ago. I've had them for a while and I can honestly say they are SO AWESOME. These are the only Covergirl products I own besides an old eyeshadow quad, because I don't really like anything from this brand. At all. These, however, are an exception.

The formula is very smooth and opaque, all of the swatches above are done on bare lips with one coat each. They stay pretty much all day and hardly fade or transfer, and they have never once feathered or bled on me. Embrace does stain a little which sucks, but it's a nice hot pink which I don't mind... I actually kinda like the look of it to be honest. It's just SO pigmented it doesn't want to come off. :p

There is a nice and soft fruity scent to these, which is really enjoyable.

Packaging is very solid and sturdy, in a nice sleek purple square case. They are a little large though so be warned if you're going to think these will fit in a vanity organizer at all. No biggie to me, because they look beautiful standing up inside my drawer with the rest of my lipsticks.

I paid $5.49 at Walmart for one, and then $7.99 at Rite Aid for the other two, but they were buy one get one free at one point a while ago. Just check around because they seem to be different prices everywhere I've been. :)

Final thoughts:

Packaging: 4/5
Price: 5/5
Pigmentation: 5/5
Staying Power: 5/5

Overall: 19/20


  1. Hey girl!
    Great to see you post!
    Love the lippies, they look great!!!

  2. Amy's back! Yay! Love Divine! Great color! I don't have any of these lipsticks, but a lot of people have been raving about them.

  3. Embrace looks great on you! I couldn't get it to show up very well on me for some reason.

  4. Diana- Thanks, it's great to be back. :) They're really lovely, if you can find them you should try them!
    Jill- So glad to see you're still here! :D These are really awesome lippies... honestly comparable to my fav indie ones!
    Vulcan Butterfly- Thanks! I don't have very pigmented lips, and I've heard that on people who have redish or orange based natural lip color it can cancel out the nice duochrome effect. :(
