You ever have one of those days where work is extremely draining that all you want is to go home and sleep and there’s nothing that could remove the dull look from your face? That was me yesterday UNTIL I opened this amazing package. A few weeks ago I entered a contest that Lisa Estrella Yang of Your Makeup Social was holding and I WON!!! 🙂 It was for this amazing hot pink lipstick which is the perfect summer color. When I opened the package and saw that not only was the item I won there but that she included the sweetest note – I instantly had the biggest smile! Sometimes all it takes it 1 compliment to make someone’s day, week or even month. Thank you Lisa for the great prize but even more so for your thoughtfulness when putting the package together! xo
Here it is:
I love the packaging of this Covergirl collection. Most lip products come with a clear cap so you can see the top of the lipstick but this one has a solid case and the bottom features the color that is inside the tube.
( ehh…excuse my small little thumbnail, it broke this week )
Now that I’ve had the chance to try this collection out, I am super excited to purchase other colors. This has got to be one of the best drugstore brand lipstick collections I’ve come across in a long time. It is super creamy and rich and just glides on giving the maximum amount of color with just one stroke to the lips. While on my lips, this formula never seemed to dry them out and they stayed moist until I took it off. A little goes a long way with this collection. Even though the packaging doesn’t market it as a “stay; long-lasting” type of lipstick, it totally is!! I enjoyed dinner and drank from a cup and the lipstick did not smudge or bleed.There’s no need to constantly re-apply and that is always a plus. I actually found it slightly difficult to fully take off and even after wiping down with napkins I could still see a hint of pink. Maybe some people will find that as a negative but I did not as it does not stain my lips that bold color after I wiped it down. Here’s a few photo’s showing what the color looks like on me 🙂
Happy Friday!! xo
