So recently C has been board the pink train–one that loyal readers will recall I have been on for pretty much ever. Thank you, thank you. Fine, so it’s really only the super bright shades that she–and more and more celebs–have been hoarding, but I have to say that, as someone who usually goes for more subdued forms of the color, I have been dipping a toe in the hot pink waters as well. My pick? CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Spellbound, a bright rose that’s deep enough to not be neon, but also bright enough to be a member of this trend. The best part, though, aside from the $7 price tag, is that the lipstick is super lightweight and has the teensiest hint of vanilla scent. But does it last?
Lipstick on your collar/ told a tale on you
Ok, so I had a sip of tea and this happened, but yet when I checked the mirror, the lipstick didn’t really show any wear, despite transferring onto the very fancy-looking cup above. And sure, by the end of the day, the color definitely wasn’t as bright (see below), but it was also definitely still on with zero reapplications–a lot more than I can say for most lipsticks. I even sort of loved the stained lip I ended up with. As for the rest of my face, I’ll just say you’re lucky I was selfless enough to share this with you, dear readers, to properly show you how the color lasted. See how far us Brooklyn Dolls will go? So hold your comments.
Help me, I’ve been at work all day.
Anyway, remember that L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Le Gloss in Watermelon Crush that I was disappointed with? Looks kind of amazing over the CoverGirl Spellbound-stained lip. In fact, my new going-out look has involved pressing (literally) Spellbound into my lips for a deep stain and then slicking on some Watermelon Crush gloss for a kind of sexy, not-too-perfect mouth. So, L’Oreal, I found a place for you in my makeup bag after all. You’re welcome.
