A few weeks ago I got a sneak peek of CoverGirl's latest amazing lip color/treatment product from CoverGirl global creative director and all around fab makeup artist, Pat McGrath at a CoverGirl Fashion Week beauty trend event.
It's called the CoverGirl Lip Perfection Gloss Balm and it's now permanent fixture in my makeup bag. It has the convenience of lip color in a crayon (which doesn't need to be sharpened as it it a twist up crayon) with the moisturizing ability of an traditional lip balm.
The colors are pretty awesome too.
I loved the creamy consistency of the crayon, and how unbelievably smooth and easy it was to apply. They do have a slight scent which I also enjoyed - slightly sweet that is the perfect touch. The formula has a nice level of pigment (more color than a tint or a balm, but not quite a lip stick) and it's extremely moisturizing, so no additional products are needed when you are wearing this.
As a matter of fact, I recently went on a beach holiday and wanted to pare down my makeup bag. This is the one lip product I reached for all day (in Watermelon Twist, shown above), every day. Some other great shades are: Scarlet Twist, Ruby Twist, Coral Twist, Haute Pink Twist and Apricot Twist.
The color has nice staying power during the day, but since they are not technically stains, reapplication is necessary after eating and drinking a bit. They're so quick and easy to use, this was not an issue for me however.
There's also quite a lot of product that you get for your money - so these will last you several months even using them every day.
Pick up several of these next time you're in the drugstore - you're going to love them! - RLB
