Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks in 256 Crème, 258 Honeyed and 395 Darling

Much to my surprise, I discovered earlier this year that Covergirl make some pretty awesome lipsticks! The pink (327 Bombshell Explosion) and the red (307 Seduce) that I tried had an excellent color payoff, the formula was comfortable on the lips and they lasted a long time too. But what about their nudes and soft pink shades? Well, I tried 3 of them for you!

258, 256, 395

The colors are beautiful, all of them looks great on me and even the light beige is flattering on my pale skin tone (NC25 in the swatches below). The texture is smooth and they glides easily on the lips.

The color payoff is also great, but the shades 256 and 258 aren't fully opaque and they have a tendency to settle into the fine lines. So if your lips are like mine (with lots of fine lines), you might not like them. However, 258 Honeyed is such a pretty nude that I'm willing to work harder to be able to wear it!

The staying power is good but not phenomenal (I need a touch up after 2 hours.), but honestly I would never expect a light shade to last all day.

The shades 256 and 258 are awesome, beautiful nudes like these are hard to find at the drugstore!

The Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks retail for $9 CDN.
