Review: Covergirl Lip Perfection in 400 Temptress

Covergirl is a best known drugstore brand from US for their fabulous LashBlast mascara series—which I sadly don’t have the chance to get them yet—but today I’m going to bring you another lovely gem of them: their Lip Perfection Lipstick!


I have four of them, and am admittedly going to review them one by one in separate post for a detailed review for each! Today I’m going to review my first: Temptress. Now let’s jump into the description of this lipstick, which was taken from its site:

Description

Pretty Packaging!
The bullet is housed in a rectangular tube, with silvery-lilac color all over its body. The whole body of this lipstick was made of a sturdy, semi-matte yet a little bit reflective plastic material and cap shuts perfectly it has the “click” sound which we all love too (that feeling, remember?) At the bottom of the tube they have some kind of dummy—like NYX Round Lipsticks have—showing pretty accurate color of what this lipstick has and its various finishes.


Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick has total 48 shades in the range, varying from crème to frost, each has 3.5 g (.12 oz) of lipstick for $  and is available at Ulta, Drugstore, Target.




Pretty Vibrant Pink!
400 Temptress is a bright, light pink. It’s not a muted pink color for me, it’s has a gorgeous brightness to me it’s almost neon—pink that works on cool people, from the palest to the darkest. Having such a beautiful soft formula (but not the one that seems to melt too soon while stored in a hot place), Temptress glides on perfectly smooth on lips without tugging even Temptress is kind of lacking the creaminess of usual Lip Perfection Lipstick. The color payoff of Lip Perfection range is awesome, but Temptress for me is a bit sheerer than the others. It has a crème finish. Here’s an arm swatch of Temptress:

But
It stays for a decent time on my lips for around 3 hours before it starts to feel a bit drying on lips. I don’t know what’s wrong with this shade, but being that said Temptress is not very great compared to its siblings even though it’s a beautiful shade to have, and is wearable for day to night.


Score
 

Last Words?
Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks are so far my current favorite for drugstore choice of crème finish because they are mostly consistent in formula for their lipstick, but Temptress is a miss for me. It’s a nice shade and wearable, but the formula is unfortunately drier and not as moisturizing as the rest in the collection.

Do you have any of Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick? What shade(s) is/are your favorite? Share below, and see you soon! XOXO <3
