AMW Reviews: Cover Girl LipPerfection Lip Colors

Hi guys!
Remember my Top 5 Moisturizing Lipsticks that Last post?  I included Cover Girl LipPerfection Lip Colors and finally, I'm ready to share the 6 shades I own and love!  

Which particular color caught your attention at a glance?


I got a couple of "nude" shades while the rest are mostly bright (almost neon) and super unique!

Pros
  • Packaging.  This is packaged  in a square shaped, steel chrome casing with cap color that corresponds the lipstick shade.  Easy to store inside lipstick container due to its' shape.
  • Creamy.  Applies smoothly.
  • Pigmentation is medium to heavy.
  • A wide range of colors to choose from: Nudes, Pinks, Orange, Plum, Reds.
  • Long-lasting.  As in super long-lasting!  Stays until removal.  (But has a bit of fading on the sides.)
  • Never feels dry or tight on lips.
  • Has shiny effect due to its hydrating ingredients.  You can easily mattify any of the LipPerfection lipsticks by reading tips below.
  • Can easily blend 2 shades to create new color.
  • Price.

Cons
  •  Stains the lips.  Need makeup wipes or remover to completely remove the lipstick pigments.
  • Can't see smoother lips in 7 days.  But thankfully, doesn't dry out my lips!
Overall
Highly pigmented, long-lasting lipsticks that works even on dry lips.  Cover Girl LipPerfection is one of the best drugstore lipstick brand I've tried to date since all 6 shades I tried are consistent in texture. 

Tips

  • For bolder colors, line the outside of your lips with a lip brush for more definition and start filling the rest in.
  • To make big lips appear smaller, apply a nude colored lipstick all over lips and gently dab darker color shades only at the center of your lips.
  • To create fuller, bigger lips, apply lipstick beyond your lip line.
  • While you do your makeup, apply your favorite lip balm to moisture your lips, before lipstick application, dab excess moisture with a tissue paper.
  • To remove excess "shine" from LipPerfection lipsticks, gently dab with tissue paper and tap translucent powder.
  • Mix and match light and dark shades to create your own unique lipstick shades.  My favorite match?  Sultry and Divine!  Sultry and Spellbound!  Sultry is such a nice "mixing color"!
  • If you find some of the bold shades too bright, fret not!  Apply face powder on top of the lipstick to "lessen" brightness.  Or in my case, I like to apply nude-colored lipstick on top of the bright-colored lipstick to create a toned-down version of your favorite bright lip colors.
Will I repurchase?
Big YES!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Lipstick wearers who like long-lasting lipsticks that aren't too drying.

Where to purchase and how much?
Available at local Cover Girl counters priced at Php395.00 (approx $9.00)

L-R Sultry | Heavenly | Hot | Spellbound | Divine | Fairytale

Sultry
A brownish-nude color, this can pass up as a "nude" lipstick for my highly pigmented lips.

Heavenly
A rosy pink shade that would look bright on others but it looks very natural on me!  
 This may pass up as MLBB (My Lip But Better) lipstick shade.


Hot
Oh my, I personally used this last but as they say: Save the Best For Last!  I didn't know I will like this color so much, yes, I own a lot of reds as of the moment but this one is different, it is extremely bright against my pale skin but it doesn't make me look...ahmmm..."cheap" :P  This is a blue-based lipstick that may show up differently on different skin tone but you have a rough idea on how it'll look if you have the same skintone as me!  


Spellbound
A fuchsia with blue undertone.  This is another unique from Cover Girl that every girl should at least try in their lifetime!  A close dupe for MAC's Girl About Town
MAC’s Girl About town lipstick


Divine
Okay, recently, I'm a fan of "purple" lip colors.  It started when I tried Inglot's Berry shade and from then on, I'm on a lookout for lighter version.  Cover Girl has done it with the shade Divine!  Divine is a cool toned purple lipstick that is almost bright yet just right even when worn during daytime!  If you want to "amplify" the lip color to night time, just apply a few more layer and you're off to go!



Fairytale
A coral pink shade on swatch but it warms up as medium pink lip color on me!  This is a great day time color and I can imagine would work well on almost all skin tone!
