CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm Review And Swatches

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Here on Long Island we got more snow yesterday. I'm so done with it already! Though I don't particularly mind shoveling because it's a great workout and an excuse to not do a "real" workout for the day hehe. There has just been SO much snow that there is no room to put more snow when shoveling! That's my only gripe really. But it's supposed to be almost 50 degrees by the end of this week so I'm excited about that!

You know you're getting old when you start talking about the weather.

Okay moving on.

Today I'm reviewing a few of the CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balms. I got these on Valentine's Day evening from Harmon inside of Bed Bath and Beyond. I was able to use BB&B coupons on these so that was a huge win! I know these are available at Ulta, and I'm sure most other drug stores. Ulta lists these as $8.99 each, but at Harmon they were $6.79 each.

The colors I got are Ballet Twist, Watermelon Twist, and Cocoa Twist.

Ballet Twist, Watermelon Twist, Cocoa Twist

These are a neat lip product. They apply sheer, but they've got good pigment(the color is buildable the more you put on) and they're glossy without being sticky. I don't own a lot of lip gloss because I hate the sticky, thick feeling it has! These are very lightweight on the lips, it feels as almost I'm not wearing anything. They apply like a lip balm but I wouldn't say they're as moisturizing as a lip balm. I would still wear a normal lip balm under these.

-Ballet Twist is a really light shimmery warmish pink. This shade will go well with both natural and smokey eye makeup. But it is really really REEEEALLY light, might not be some people's cup of tea.

-Watermelon Twist is just that...watermelon pink. This shade is a great bright pink without being too "in your face" and super bold. This will be a great color to wear come spring time! Or

-Cocoa Twist is a lovely "my lips but better" nude slightly mauveish shade. A perfect color for everyday wear!

So all in all I really like this lip product! I definitely want to try to get my hands on a couple of more shades, perhaps a red and coral shade. We'll see!

Have any of you tried these lippies? Thoughts? Are you loving any particular fun lip products from the drugstore lately? Please share with me in the comments below!

Thank you so much for reading! I truly appreciate it :)

Shine on!
