Covergirl Lipslicks Lipgloss: Demure, Princess, Precious, Edgy & Daring Swatches and Review!

Purchased by me
According to Covergirl, "Give your lips sheer color and a shot of shine – or pump up the shine of your favorite lip color! This emollient-rich formula helps keep lips soft, moist, and feeling their best as it helps to protect. So say goodbye to dull lips, and hello to beautiful shine."
Left to Right: Demure, Princess, Precious, Edgy & Daring
Features:
Sheer color
Lots of shine
Helps keep lips soft and moist
Left to Right: Demure (nude pink), Princess (baby pink), Precious (pink with lavender flair), Edgy (purple plum) & Daring (cool-toned deepened raspberry shade).
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 ├╝ber 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. There is a slightly perfumed taste to it upon application, but that quickly fades away.
Overall assessment: I like these a great deal, and speaking of great deal I just saw them on sale for a little over $3.00 each at Walgreens (on 6/4/13). They come in fun colors, feel great on the lips, and are very affordable.

I bought mine at Rite Aid and CVS on sale. Unaffiliated link provided for your convenience.

Have you tried any of the CG Lipslicks Lipglosses? Do you like them?

  2. Precious is my favorite swatch. I love a gloss with a subtle hint of color. Give you just the right amount of shine. I definitely have to check these out. Thanks!

    1. Hi Monae! Precious is really pretty! Try to get it from Walgreens if you have one near you-- the clearance prices were fantastic at just a little over $3.00. It might be worth calling first because the last Walgreens the I went to didn't have many left in their display. I saw piles of them at CVS and Rite-Aid, but they weren't on sale like that! :-)
