Covergirl is one of those brands I've always wanted to try but due to only being available in the US, I've never had the opportunity to try it. So you can imagine how surprised and excited i was when i was browsing the make up section in Poundworld to see some of the Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks there. At £1 each, i picked up quite a few.
|Enchantress, Siren, Rich, Romance, Hot|
They have a very creamy formula and feel really smooth and moisturising on the lips. I'm not quite how to describe their finish of them; it's almost like a satin finish and some of the shades have a slight shimmery frost to them. I actually really like this formula as it's so pleasant to wear on the lips.
They're really pigmented and have pretty good staying power, especially Enchantress, Siren and Hot they are slightly more stubborn than others as they leave a slight stain to the lips. They also have quite a pleasant scent but i have no idea what it is.
Enchantress is really pretty, frosty pink shade, it's quite a light pink colour but it's really flattering colour once applied. Enchantress actually reminds me of Mac's Snob Lipstick except it's more pink toned than lilac.
Siren is a gorgeous plummy shade; in the pan it looks like the perfect autumn lip colour but on application it's slight more pink. Similar to Enchantress is has a frosty sheen to it but it really is a lovely colour.
Rich is definitely not what i expected it to be shade wise. In the packet it looks more like a mauve pink shade so i was a bit let down when i opened it to find a completely different colour. This is a red toned coppery brown shade, it is really beautiful but i don't know if i suit brown tones when it comes to lipstick because i always feel quite alien in them.
Again, i completely misjudged Romance when it comes to the shade. To me, it looks like it should be a deep red (Maybe it's me?) but it's definitely more on the brown side of things. Like Rich, i feel quite alien when i try this on because i can't decide if i suit or not. It's a lovely colour but i might pass this onto a friend.
Hot is my favourite one out of the bunch. It is a gorgeous bright ruby red; this is the only one out of all these lipsticks that doesn't have that frosty sheen to it, this is just pure red. It's absolutely lovely and when i was reading up on these lipsticks i discovered that this Hot is actually one of Taylor Swift's favourite lipsticks to wears.
Some of these still had the US prices on them, they retailed at $8.29 which according to google converts to about £5.37 and i got all these for £1 each which is such a bargain. I absolutely love checking out the make up aisle in Poundworld because you can find some serious bargains there, each of these lipsticks came in a packet with a nail polish too and they actually aren't bad either.
There's a couple more shades i want to get my hands on that I'm wishing i picked up but overall I'm made up i got my hands on some of these lipsticks.
Will you be heading down to Poundworld?
