During the spring and summer months, I am all about colour. On my lips, at least! There is nothing quite as fun as rocking a super bold lip colour. Some of my favourite shades right now are purple, peach, orange, and bright pink. Enter the new Cover Girl Colorlicious Lip Glosses. Okay, so I don't normally reach for a ton of Cover Girl products or a lot of lip glosses....but what can I say? I'm all about colour.
There was a good variety of colours to choose from, including nude shades, lilac, pinks, reds, and more. But the colour I ended up with was Fruitylicious. Why this shade? It was so bright and bold! Plus, it was different than anything else I had in my makeup collection already. The shade is a bright pink with a slightly red-ish undertone. It definitely knows how to make a statement.
So, how was it? Not bad! Surprisingly enough, this product gives off a ton of colour. I can't speak for the rest of the shades but this one in particular packed a real punch. I was amazed by the level of pigmentation. It didn't take a lot of product to get that bright summery shade to stand out.
The formula itself was smooth going on but it did get a little tacky as time went on. As someone who isn't a huge fan of lip glosses, I didn't find this particular one to be super sticky or annoying to wear, though. The packaging for this product was nothing special. It had a standard sponge tip applicator and a twist off cap. It got the job done, though!
Want to see what it looks like in action? I created a makeup look around the lip colour. I kept the rest of my makeup pretty simple and went with defined brows and some look-at-me lips. Here it is:
For the most part, I was happy with this purchase. The colour is beautiful and it has great staying power. The only drawback is that the formula tends to get a little tacky the longer you wear it. Re-applying is a must! I don't know that I will be picking up any other shades, but I can definitely see myself wearing this colour throughout the season.
What do you think of the shade? Have you tried any glosses from this line yet?
