I have started to gravitate towards the color “red”now. In fact, I am always looking out for red dresses, nail paints and lip colors. Red can add that hot quotient to any look. This obsession towards red tempted me to get CoverGirl Double Dare Lipslicks Smoochies Lip Balm. I have tried this range earlier and loved it, hence I had ordered one more. The name “Double Dare” is also a reason why I picked it up. Check out whether this lipslick from Covergirl impressed me like the earlier “Luv U” one.

My Experience with CoverGirl Double Dare Lipslicks Smoochies Lip Balm:
These were called only ‘Covergirl Lipslicks’ earlier and they looked a bit boring to people. So, I guess they innovated and made the packaging and the names more fun and exciting by making it look very colourful and attractive. I earlier got Luv u which was a pink one and this year, I got a bright red one.
First, talking about the new packaging, they are super cute and gorgeous with a lime green bottom and a red inner packaging which basically resembles the colour of the lip balm so you can spot and pick them up quickly. Also, the outer lid is transparent with all those cute things written over it like oxxo and smoochies and stuff. The packaging is very convenient to use and you can carry it along easily. These are drugstore lip balms, so are super good in quality and affordable too. They have a very wide variety to pick from and trust me, all the shades are stunning and sweet.
This seems more appropriate for office or college going girls who need to pucker up their lips everyday with something that looks more natural and not too overwhelming. The texture is very soft and delicate and glides very smoothly on the lips without pulling or tugging, but at least 2-3 swipes are needed for the entire colour to show. The texture is a bit waxy, but it doesn’t take much time to settle down.
Online, when I was checking this shade out, it looked red. But, when I started to use it, I realised that it is more of a bright coral pink shade. It is a mix of coral and pink. Not really red, but bright enough to be noticeable. It instantly gives life to the lips making them look fuller and healthier. The pigmentation is really good for a lip balm. This could be used as it is or underneath a lipstick. My lips always look full and shine subtly because of the great glossy shine that it provides.
You get a marshmallow-like fragrance when you apply it, but it fades out quickly. The main issue with this one is that it does not survive for a long time on the lips. It lasts up to 2 hours and then the lips start to feel flaky and a bit dry. But, as soon as you apply it again, it gives a dash of color. Also, since the lip balm is highly pigmented, it may further highlight chapped lips and make them look even more visible. I think it is pretty fair for a lip balm to last for 2 hours because no lip balm lasts more than that.
What I really like about this lip balm is that, although, the moisture fades away, the mild red stain is left behind on the lips. Hence, the lips do not look dull at any point of time. The lips stay stained in red for 2-3 hours more. So, I think I loved this variant too, and now I have a good collection of lip balms ranging from peaches, to pink to reds.
