This fragranced cream lipstick is as close to perfection as you'll find at the drugstore! Between the feather-light feel, semi-matte finish, and incredible staying power, it's a winner for CoverGirl and you.

The shade range is quite good, including trendy "runway-inspired" colors as well as classic pink, rose, red, nude, coral, and brown tones, and the pigmentation these have make them a great value.

Pros:
  • Rich color application and exceptional staying power.
  • Lightweight, non-greasy feel on lips
  • Gorgeous range of contemporary shades that are divided into color groups, making shopping easy.
  • Red lipstick fans take note: The Hot shade is a drugstore double for M.A.C's Russian Red
Cons:
  • None, unless you prefer fragrance-free lipstick
More Info:

The claims about this lipstick creating "soft, smooth, beautiful lips in 7 days" refer to the combination of moisturizing ingredients Cover Girl calls "Silk Therapy Complex." Although this lipstick does have an impressively smooth texture that leaves lips feeling moisturized (but not greasy), the added beneficial ingredients are present in such small amounts that the claims of being a treatment product are over the top.

Bright, gorgeous color that can transform your day and your lips. Enriched with a silk moisturizing complex, our formula helps sustain moisture levels and helps create soft, smooth, beautiful lips in just 7 days.

Since 1961, CoverGirl has been slowly building a portfolio of cosmetics that today is about as all-encompassing as a makeup line can be. Originating from the same "medicated" ingredients found in Noxzema Skin Cream (which was never medicated in the least, but seriously irritating for skin), the debut products are still available, albeit with slight modifications. The good news is that for the past several years CoverGirl has consistently updated their line with some very impressive products, especially their foundations, concealers, and vastly improved pressed powders. They also offer some excellent eye and lip pencils, lipsticks and lip gloss, and one of the all-time best long-wearing lip paints, Outlast.

What's puzzling is that although many of CoverGirl's latest products are progressive, they tend to hang on to the lackluster-to-poor options, including abysmal powder blush and eyeshadows and their long-standing, very irritating Clean Makeup. These items may be part of CoverGirl's humble beginnings, but you certainly don't see parent company Proctor & Gamble adding eucalyptus oil and menthol to their Olay products or to products of any of the other cosmetics companies they own. If those ingredients were so important, why not use them everywhere? Needless to say, the great products outnumber the disappointments, and the prices make it easy for those on a budget to be beautiful and enjoy some state-of-the-art products, provided they shop wisely.

CoverGirl's Web site is extremely easy to navigate, and presents a wealth of product information, along with practical (if somewhat cutesy) tips and tricks for successful makeup application and for finding the shades that work best for you. CoverGirl's consumer relations department is consistently helpful if you have any questions or concerns. For example, if one of your favorite items was discontinued, you might want to know what replaced it, and they will let you know. Such service and customer concern is yet another powerful reason to believe CoverGirl really has its (class) act together.

    A hidden gem!!
    • I will take this lipstick any day over lipsticks from Lancôme, Chanel, MAC etc. The colors are modern, sophisticated and cover a wide range of shades. I own about 7 of them and every single one is incredible. The shade Precious is one of a kind universal medium warm pink/red. The texture of these lipsticks is very thin and comfortable, the color stays on for hours and I don't think I need to say anything about the price!!! I could use a little less fragrance, but that's the only small drawback.

    Fabulous Lipstick
    • This is the best lipstick on the market. Great texture, price and staying power. I am disappointed because Covergirl has discontinued the colour Impassion 215. This was a unique, gorgeous and exotic medium coral copper with a subtle shimmer that provided depth. There is no match for this colour anywhere on the market. It makes no sense why Covergirl would discontinue the best colour they have ever made. Paula, you should consider reproducing the colour and texture and have a bestseller.

    good color, good staying power, bleeds
    • Great colors, good staying power, not drying on lips. Only complaint I have is it bleeds into the fine lines around my lips. If you are a young lady & don't need to worry about the fine lines around your lip (I didn't know they existed until my mid thirties!) this lipstick is a good value. However, for me, that bleeding in the fine lines around the lips is a deal breaker and I will not be purchasing it again.

    Staying Power
    • The only reason I didn't give this product a 4 (Best) rating is that, although the color lasts almost all day, it is drying and by the end of the day my lips are sore. NO peeling or signs of true allergy, just sore lips and some dryness. I like to wear this lipstick when I need color to stay, and once it is on for 10 minutes I reapply and then top it with my favorite thick gloss or another more emollient lipstick. Color will fade some, but only needs an occasional app of gloss throughout day
