Askmewhats Reviews: CoverGirl WetSlicks AmazeMint in Toast-ed


As seen in my previous post, I won this CG Wet Slicks Amaze Mint together with other cool stuffs. I've given this product a try the moment I received this. I've been using this for more than a week. Meaning, right time to give this baby a review.

Here's how the product looks.
Physical check, you'll think this is too brownish and dark.




If swatched, here's now it looks like, brown with peachy tone



CG says ---

CoverGirl Wetslicks Amazemint isn't just a lipgloss, it's a smile treatment! Crest Peppermint Oil provides a minty breath sensation while the gloss itself gives a dazzling high-shine without all that "sticky".

  • With Crest Peppermint Oil
  • Brightens your smile
  • Feels like a balm
  • Lasting high-shine
Askmewhats says ---

Pros
  • non-sticky, again using the "kiss hubby" test *winks* I love testing lip products! LOL
  • non-drying
  • lasts approx. 3 hours of continuous talking, drank 2x (for me, this is already good for a gloss)
  • packaging is just right, not too big or too small
  • I love the minty feeling, it definitely feels like a balm
Cons
  • it has minty PLUS chocolate-y flavor and scent. I find the chocolate scent OK but after continuous usage, and on "not so good" days, this bothers me
  • I don't think we have it available here locally (correct me if I'm wrong)
Overall

This is a cool gloss because of it's Peppermint oil, it soothes my dry lips and I find the color really pretty and flattering. I tested this to my friends and I would say it looks great on them as well. I like the fact that it is a gloss, it's not too dark, but it does cover the "lines" on my lips.

Tips
  • though glosses are high shine, I still recommend to use your favorite lipbalm to protect your lips before putting anything else.
  • do not rub your lips together too much if you're using a gloss, will cause lipgloss build up <-- not a pretty sight

Will I repurchase?
Yes, IF this gets to be available here! I have seen their website and they have a couple of shades I would purchase!

Find this useful?
Send me a *hug*
I needed this, such a loooonggg week! :D

  11. Purple Snowflake, me too , everytime I'm at a MAC store, I am swatching and testing on their glosses, so pretty! I hate deciding!

    Caryn :) Sure, tell me how it goes!

    Sab, well I support you in your "no buy" mode. Thanks for the hugs :) How are you? how's your wednesday? When will you start school?

    Alyssa, really? You love it huh! thanks, I find myself reaching out for this gloss everyday!

    THSG, try it! I'm sure it'll look great on you! Your lips are lovely!

    Prettybeautiful, yes, the first impression was..TOO DARK! But when I tested on my lips! It works really well! How do you test your lips' stickiness? LOL

    Cinthia, funny twin!!!! I am honestly missing you!!! how are you?

  13. *Hugs* Feel better. :)

    The lip gloss looks pretty (and not brown at all) on you. I'm all for the peppermint oil, but I agree with the chocolate flavour, probably something I'd stay away from.

  14. crest peppermint oils? whoa. when did that pair-up happen? at my work we sell lipglosses with peppermint and spearmint oils but i'm pretty sure we don't have much of a color range as CG. haha. i like the color on you! it doesn't look too chocolate-y too, which is nice :)

  15. I love when lipgloss has a mint flavor. It's great to use when you can't get to a toothbrush!

  16. Nikki, I know! I have never heard that combination! that's why I'm glad I was able to try it! I love the mint-y flavor!

    Leeann, lol true! that's the point of CG i guess, you can smell the mint for sure!

  17. I bet you don't get C.E. Bigelow there... sadness. They have a great minty lipgloss -- high shine and well, sticky too, but yummmmm. Deliciously minty. We don't have it in Canada either. I bought it either L.A. or NYC for about $8 US. That was the first minty lipgloss I encountered. :-)

    By the way, Nikki, you have the most perfectly shaped lips! Lucky hubby! *giggle*

    And Toast-ed looks soft and pretty on you. Has a delicate pinky tone under the caramel shade -- that's your natural lip pigment, isn't it? Sooo pretty!

  18. Janine!!!! Yes, no C.E. Bigelow here! I guess you too huh? Well at least the US nearer from Canada compared to from Manila !LOL

    *blush* you are soooo sweet. Do you know that when I was younger, one feature I really hate are my lips (aside from all others) coz it's thick (Angelina JOlie isn't famous then), it's dry, it's dark! lol

    Yes, I just used the Toast-ed lipgloss and do you know that I LOVE this shade! Wouldn't buy this on my own! coz the color looks too dark on tube! thanks again sweetie
