So officially we are into the fall season and hence most of the posts are going to cater to the colors and looks appropriate for the season in sync with the latest trend ( not really).
But yes most of the looks and reviews will center around the mood of the season. So this post is on COVERGIRL lipstick which I know is going to get a lot of use this season. Its called ETERNAL, and like the name suggests the color is an eternally flattering.PRICE
: $6.99 USD
, and an outrageous price of 1600 INR on snapdeal
PACKAGING: I love the packaging on this lipstick, the metallic feeling gunmetal color in a square shaped bullet fives this lipstick luxurious feel like that of a high end lipstick. At the end of the bullet there is a transparent casing through which you can easily see the color.
COLOR: Ooo..The color is a deep fuchsia with blue undertones bordering on magenta and yet not quiet so dark.
If you want get into the fall mood and are not ready to dab the darkest/goth lipstick there is its a good lipstick to start with. Its still bold and seeks attention though not screams attention.
TEXTURE: This lipstick is creamy rich and glides on the lips effortlessly. Its on the creamier side but doesnt slip, though you will notice some bleeding if you apply it without a lipliner. So a quick tip to avoid bleeding with this lipstick would be to line your lips first.
PIGMENTATION: Its insanely pigmented. Just one swipe gives you a perfectly opaque finish. All the lip swatches in this post are just one swipe. You can definitely build up the color as deep as you desire.
STAYING POWER AND PERFORMANCE: I have compared these lipsticks to the Maybelline colorsensational range earlier , the texture and pigmentation is very comparable along with the price range( in USA).
But where these lipsticks score over Maybelline’s are in their staying power. Where Maybelline disappears after 3 hours me these stay a good 4 to 5 hours before they start to fade.
So overall I love this lipstick, I was ecstatic to find COVERGIRL products on Snapdeal, but the prices are such downer. Its a drugstore brand lipstick and I can neither justif nor suggest anyone to spend INR1600 on this one. But if you can shop from the USA, then its worth a try. I am certain you will love it.
UNTIL NEXT TIME..
P.S.: I have reviewed anoother lipstick from this range its called HEAVENLY.
