- Helps keep lips soft and moist
To be truthful, I don't think that I have ever tried anything from Covergirl in my entire life. Until Revlon's rebirth via the Colorburst Lip Butters drugstore brands hadn't really been on my radar since I was a teenager. That said, one day as I was foraging through my lovely sister's stash I found this Covergirl Lipslicks Lipgloss in Daring. I was immediately smitten and promptly ran to Rite Aid to buy it ($5.99).
As Covergirl suggests, this is a very sheer formula with lots of shine, and it does, indeed, keep lips soft and moist. I like the way that it feels- there is enough cushion to feel super comfortable. It feels a bit like a cross between a lip balm and lipstick with a lovely dewy shine. While it is categorized as a lipgloss, I would say it's more of a lipstick/lip balm hybrid. It functions in the realm of the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine, but make no mistake- Chanel's permutation is of superior quality in every way. That said, this is a lovely drugstore version of this über popular type of lip product. I get about 2-3 hours of wear time out of it, but sometimes less because it feels so good that I tend to rub my lips together to feel it.
While the coverage is on the sheer side a few extra passes will build the coverage a bit. The color that I chose, Daring (130) is a sheer deepened cool-toned raspberry shade, and not nearly as vampy as one might assume judging by how dark it appears in the tube. As for the name, it really isn't such a "Daring" color to wear- frankly it's sheer enough that they should have called it "Looks Daring, but it's Demure!" However, it is a really lovely color that is very easy to wear. There is a slightly perfumed taste to it upon application, but that quickly fades away.
