Again, courtesy my sis, loads of goodies from Covergirl coming up for you guys. Now, all pink lovers will drool over this shade. Agree, may not be available here, but we can always find a similar shade in the Indian market as well. The review will give you an idea of a very pretty, milky pink shade, which Indian fair skin can carry. Sorry, I really don’t think this one is for dusky skin as I could picture myself wearing this only when I have used a proper concealer and base, and not with dark circles as it would badly wash me out. Also, can picture myself with some brown-black eye makeup and pink blush too. So, I think dusky skin can give this a go by!
Covergirl Continuous Color Mauve Elegant is a wonderful crème lipstick, the texture which I die for, totally stunning mauve-y pink, I would say. I find it milky pink, towards mauve side, but mainly a pink for me. I picture mauve somewhere with plum in it and so I would safely call this a mix of baby plus milky pink.
The texture is soft and smooth but not of those melting nature lipsticks, like NYX. This one is creamy yet sturdy enough and the finish is absolutely creamy, some would say semi matte. There is no shimmer, sheen , glaze or glitter, it’s a plain everyday cream lipstick and such textures are ideal for me, my face, complexion and lips.
The packaging is also very cute, I have none like this one. It’s a cute black and silver with the cap being long and not meeting the tube mid way. I don’t know how to explain, but its so cute and the label itself shows the exact color of the lipstick.
I wish they would mention the finish at the label too, like the plastic packing said crème, but the label at the base does not, never mind that. The lipstick has some bubbles in it. I am not so fond of such sights as it would remind me of the crude process of manufacturing a lipstick, I don’t know what I am talking about, but yeah, I don’t like bubbles in the lipstick. It should be plain and nice, virgin lipstick, which looks perfect after I open the cap 😀
Now, I find that the crème texture is soft and glides on well. The pigmentation is also very good, like I would need two swipes to get a good pink. One swipe would be nude lip kind of color, but if I swipe it on and on, it would settle in fine lines, then I would need to rub the lips together to get rid of the accumulation. So, two swipes should be good. The staying power is like any other crème lipstick and leaves a hint of baby pink for me.
One thing I am noticing about all Cover Girl lipsticks I got is that these do leave stain on lips after removal, no matter what the color which really surprises me as owing to the texture of the lipstick, I did not expect that. This one too leaves a pinky stain for me.
Also, I find that 3 grams is very good quantity to finish for a lipstick junkie like me, 4 grams or more lose their charm very soon. So, I like the fact that it’s a crème lipstick and its 3 grams, so should be used up good and justified.
Last Word on Cover Girl Continuous Color Lipstick, “It’s Your Mauve” – 535 Mauve Elegant:
A very pretty baby pink kind of crème lipstick. I love it but be careful because it may wash out Indian skin tones. On the whole, I love the texture, finish, packaging, and shade. I am looking forward to getting more of these :haanji:
