My Experience with Covergirl Lip Perfection Lip Color in Temptress Charmeuse 400:
The Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Temptress Charmeuse come in a very cute and sleek packaging. It is a deep purple shade tube with the a clear bottom which showcases the color of the lipstick. I feel this has a very convenient packaging because it is easy to see the color without having to open it up. The color is a bright hot pink with very tiny hint of shimmer which can go unnoticed.
When I first swatched it, I was surprised to see how bright it was. Unfortunately, when I applied it to my lips, I need to swipe it several times to get the full color on. It was a disappointment for me because the swatch on my hand came out so nice, but it was the opposite on my lips. BUT, after a few swipes, I got the exact color that’s on the tube and that came out on my hand, so it did not bother me too much after that. Also, the staying power is fairly decent, it lasted up to 3 hours without eating or drinking on me. Though I should mention that it stains my lips. So, when the lipstick fades away and if I do not re-apply, I am left with a pink stain which generally I wouldn’t mind as much, but it leaves an uneven stain, so that becomes a problem for me. For instance, my upper lip line is more pink that the rest of my lips and in short, it just seems like I have chapped red lips. I even tried to scrub it off and that just irritated my lips and did not remove the color until later on in the day.
Aside from that, the formula is nice and creamy, and glides on very smoothly. I have heard people complain about it not being moisturizing, but I believe it keeps my lips moisturized while it remains on my lips and once it fades away, it does not over dry them even though it stains. The name “Temptress” surely does justice to the actual lipstick because it sure is a tempting color, I reach for it all the time regardless of the flaws.
