Heyy guys today I am going to review my first lipstick from Covergirl.
This one is a part of Covergirl LipPerfection lipstick and I am gonna review the shade #325 - Spellbound.
It really has left me spellbound ;)
The packaging is sophisticated and sturdy. These rectangular tubes come in semi reflective , semi matte packaging.
The bottom of the tube shows the color so its very convenient to find the lipstick. Saves time you know.
Although I feel they should have mentioned the full name of this collection on the tube Covergirl lip perfection. Since I got it as a gift I had to search for the full name online.
|Spellbound - 2 swipes|
The pigmentation is excellent, lipstick goes super opaque in just one swipe. The staying power is remarkable and even when it start fading which is after some 8-10 hours there is a stain left on lips.
Its a pain to remove this lipstick I need 3 sprays of my Lakme Absolute Bi phased makeup remover on my cotton pad to clean it completely.
If you just want a tint of this then apply it using a lip brush or just dab directly from the tube with a light hand on your lips.
It has a right level of softness and glides on smoothly. I would describe the finish as satin-y and it gives a nice sheen.
The only con I find is that the smell of the lipstick is synthetic but it fades away in just a few seconds. You may not like it if you have a very sensitive nose and you need some extra effort to remove it completely.
Availability in India is a problem.
|My lip swatch|
I first applied using a lip brush and built up the intensity gradually for a even and precise application.
I dint use any lip liner underneath so that I can show how it looks on my bare lips.
Since its super pigmented I recommend you apply it with a lip brush first and then directly from the tube.
P.S : Its said to be a dupe for MAC Girl about town but since I have not used GAT I cant really say. Check out THIS link to see the swatches of MAC GAT & covergirl spellbound and decide by yourself ;)
