Beauty In Review: CoverGirl’s Colorlicious Lip Gloss

Hi Beauties! I have to start off by apologizing for not adding new content sooner. I’m soooo sorry. Life sometimes gets in the way and between the illness and death of my grandfather and opening my new Beauty Boutique life got kind of crazy. But I’m back and excited to bring you new beauty news!

So a few months ago I was doing research in my beauty magazines about the newest products getting ready to hit the shelves. One of the products that caught my eye was the new gloss from CoverGirl called Colorlicious. This collection boasts 13 colors and the tagline is:

Shades that never lie. 13 luscious glosses with true to the tube shades. What you see is what you get!”

So I searched every drugstore high and low for about the past month and a half with no luck. It was this past weekend when I was getting a lipstick for a bride that I saw them! I knew I had to have it. I was so happy to see that a drugstore brand had gloss comparable to my $20 tubes. I ended up buying three shades; Give me Guava, Whipped Berry and Succulent Citrus. They look so vibrant in the tubes so I couldn’t wait for them to be true to color. If you know me then you know I love bold lips!

So I intentionally did not wear any lip color to the store so I could immediately put my color on. Imagine my disappointment when the bolder colors weren’t so true to the tube. The formula is sheer and barely buildable without greasy looking lips. Plus they kind of made my lips tingle a little. I hate Whipped Berry. Succulent Citrus is tolerable and I actually like Give me Guava. Give me Guava is a natural sheer color anyway so you can pair it with a nice lipstick.

Bottom line, don’t waste your money. There are other affordable true to color glosses that don’t require layer upon layer to be able to see the color.
