Product packaging:IMG_9855The packaging of those lip balms are similar to their Coloricious lipsticks which have the identical clear twist up base and a barely metallic lid.  The within is totally white and the metallic lids correspond to the shade contained in the tube.  I didn’t have any testers obtainable after I went to get these, so I needed to base it off of the lid which surprisingly was fairly correct.  The tube itself is product of an affordable plastic and you may inform it isn’t prime quality, nevertheless it works with it’s solely operate which is to twist up the lip balm and hold it soiled free so I give it a move on that.

IMG_9704On the underside of the tube has a pleasant label with the corresponding shade and is clearly labeled with the shade quantity and the shade identify.  I actually respect the eye to small particulars like this as a result of if I need to retailer this the other way up with the label going through up, I can nonetheless simply inform what shade it’s with out having to waste time and fiddle round after I’m dashing out the door.

Find out how to use:
Apply this onto your lips both by itself or to moisturize your lips earlier than making use of your lipstick or lip shade.  These will be put on both means and with the darker shades, you’ll be able to even use it as a flush of shade on the lips to exchange lipsticks for a extra pure look.

Shade/ Pigmentation:
I used to be not anticipating a lot from these merchandise since I’ve my bias opinion of Covergirl as a model.  I haven’t had a lot luck with their model and I actually don’t just like the well-known lash blast mascara which simply offers me tremendous clumped up look.  These lip balms are literally respectable and I might hold these in my assortment to make use of as a lip balm.  If in case you have pigmented lips like me, I’d counsel you keep on with the darkish shades since these really do offer you a tint in your lips and you may move them off as lip tints or a substitute for lipstick.

IMG_9839Let’s strive these on~

IMG_9837Right here’s my pure lips with no product on.  I’ve fairly dry, chapped lips so I’m a lip balm hoarder.  If you wish to see different lip balms I take advantage of/ have in my assortment, click on right here for my lip balm overview if you need options on which lip balms to get for your self.

IMG_9858First up cupcake.

IMG_9842Naturally, cupcake doesn’t actually present up on my lips since I do have fairly pigmented lips.  It does barely lighten my lips and go away a child pink tint nevertheless it sufficient for me to need to purchase it once more. 


IMG_9845Caramel on my lips, once more, type of look clear on my lips. 


IMG_9848Soda is one I might repurchase sooner or later because it really does one thing to my lips.  As you’ll be able to see, it offers me the nicest, most pure flush to my lips like I sucked on a cherry popsicle


IMG_9852Gumdrop can be one other shade I might take into account repurchasing sooner or later if I used to be available in the market to get a inexpensive, tinted lip balm.  This shade offers me a slight berry tint which additionally seems to be pure.  I really gravitate this shade extra then soda since I’m not experimental with my lip colours and this shade is a bit bit extra muted which is my model.

Texture/ End:
These lip balms glide simply on my lips and melts proper in.  As soon as utilized to the lips, it offers my lips this juicy flushed look and doesn’t cling onto any dry patches!

Relying on what shade you bought, the colour protection varies.  I’d actually select the darker shades since it’s extra worthwhile to take action, except you simply desire a clear lip balm, then by all means get the lighter shades.  Nonetheless in case you simply desire a clear lip balm, I’d counsel you take a look at A’pieu’s Honey and milk lip sleeping pack which retails for $5 and has a greater moisturizing impact for the lips in the long term.

Lasting energy:
These final about 1-1.5 hours on my lips and leaves my lips barely moisturized.

Mimicking the Contemporary sugar lip remedy’s, Covergirl’s model smells just about the identical with the sugary lemon scent.  Scent-o-scale=7-10.

Is it a 100% dupe?:
Do I feel these are 100% dupes to Contemporary’s dearer model?  No I don’t suppose it’s a full dupe however it’s a shut second.  I’d say it’s about 80% there.  Covergirl presents a pleasant vary of shades and a extra inexpensive value.  Texture in comparison with Contemporary’s is rather less creamy and the tint left on the lips is about 70% there.  Contemporary’s is much more pigmented, a bit extra creamy and stays on my lips for at the very least 2-Three hours.  One factor I don’t like about Contemporary’s is that it typically clings onto my dry patches which Covergirl doesn’t do.  General Covergirl’s is a detailed second and never a nasty buy fro fraction of the worth.

-nice number of shades
-nice components, creamy texture

-could be a bit extra moisturizing
-needs a greater lasting energy
