Review: CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick

I'm kind of obsessed with trying new things, especially beauty products. I love trying new formulas, new colors, new anything really, so I was beyond thrilled when I found out that BzzAgent was sending me two new lipsticks from CoverGirl's Lip Perfection line to try out.

Yes, I'm a BzzAgent. In case you're not familiar with BzzAgent's program, it's a free service you can sign up for that allows you to try out new or existing products and share your experience with your friends and family. I've had an AMAZING experience with this company, and I highly recommend that you consider joining. I'll stop rambling now because I'll be doing an in-depth article about BzzAgent soon!

On to the main event, these lovely lipsticks. 

I LOVE the new packaging. So pretty.

CoverGirl's Lip Perfection line claims that you'll have "more beautiful lips in 7 days" from the lipstick's Silk Therapy complex that helps your lips retain moisture. I'm not sure if I noticed a difference in my lip's texture, but the lipstick was extremely smooth and moisturizing on my lips.

I was sent the colors Sweetheart, a frosty light Barbie pink, and Soulmate, sort of a middle ground between fuschia and red. I would say that CoverGirl's Lip Perfection line is medium coverage, but can be built up to full coverage on the lips.

My personal favorite color was Sweetheart, a frosty light pink. I think the color is extremely wearable, and it lasted  nearly all day. I'm usually a lip gloss girl, but I've been wearing this lipstick a lot lately. It's such a fun spring color!

I could not get my camera to capture this color accurately, so please look at the swatch in the picture above for a more true color representation. I really did love the color of Soulmate, but I thought that the color was a little too bright for me for everyday use. I doubt that I'd wear this color often, so I gave it to my mom.

Overall, I'd rate CoverGirl's Lip Perfection Lipstick an 8/10. If you're looking for a medium coverage, moisturizing lipstick, Lip Perfection would be a great match for you. I've recently browsed through their complete color collection at CVS, and there is definitely a huge selection!

I almost forgot about CoverGirl's 50th Anniversary! Check it out on their Facebook page if you get a chance! They've been posting fun activities, and they also post opportunities about free samples!

I'm normally more of a lipgloss girl, but testing out this lipstick has inspired me to branch out a bit with my lip routine. What are your favorite lipsticks? Any brands that I should try out?
