Drugstore Buy of the Week - CoverGirl Queen Collection Stay Luscious Lipstick, Monarch

CoverGirl Queen Collection Stay Luscious Lipstick in the new shade, Monarch, was one of those shades that I just knew would be a knock out even before I used it.  *It's also featured in the new CoverGirl Queen Collection ad with Janelle Monae and looks spectacular!

The CoverGirl Queen Collection Stay Luscious Lipstick is a new, ten shade collection of lipsticks that launched with the new CoverGirl Queen Because We Rule Collection for Spring 2016. The difference between these Queen Collection Stay Luscious lipsticks and similar CoverGirl Outlast Long Wear Lipstick are that these feature deeper, richer and warmer shades created for warmer and darker skin tones.  These shades are loaded with pigment, smooth and hydrating with gorgeous colors.

If you're looking for a glamorous, sexy warm red, look no further than the Monarch shade. The texture and weight are just right.  It felt light, but very creamy on my lips.  I could immediately feel how hydrating and comforting it was.  The pigment was incredible.  With just a light swipe of the tube, I got full, opaque color and the beautiful, deep berry red shade.

The finish was semi-matte and did not smudge or bleed through (but there was transfer to cups, straws when drinking as this is not a stain or long wear formula).

Monarch is a must-have deep red (& under $8!), but if you're looking for  beautiful deeper pink, fuchsia and purple shades, CoverGirl Queen Collection Stay Luscious Lipstick line has plenty of those as well! - RLB
