My Experience with Covergirl Succulent Cherry Colorlicious Lipstick:
Covergirl has grouped their “Colorlicious” range of lipsticks into four color families – nudes, pinks, reds and plums. “Succulent Cherry” is part of the “reds” family.
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a rectangular tube, similar to Covergirl’s Lip Perfection range. The lipsticks in the Colorlicious range have caps which indicate the color family they belong to. “Succulent Cherry” has a red cap.
The cap fits tightly which makes it “makeup bag” friendly. The lipstick tubes have a color coded base on which the shade name and number are printed. But the color of the base is not an exact match to the actual lipstick shade or finish. So, determining the color and finish just based on the colored base is a bit tricky.
Color: Succulent Cherry is a red shade with a hint of orange which is a great option for a summer wear lipstick. It is a very pretty shade which brightens up the face, but at the same time, it is not so overly bright that you cannot wear it in an office environment.
Texture and Finish: The Colorlicious lipsticks have a balm-like texture. Succulent Cherry is quite creamy but applies in thin layers. Even if you apply multiple layers, it does not look patchy or feel heavy on the lips. It feels just like you have applied a lip balm. It does not dry the lips at all. I have dry lips and with this lipstick, my lips feel very moisturized even after hours. “Succulent Cherry” has a slightly glossy finish. It makes the lips look fuller.
Pigmentation: Due to the balmy finish, the pigmentation is not very strong with just one layer. One layer gives a sheer finish. But with three layers, you can get a completely opaque finish. As I mentioned earlier, building it up does not make it feel heavy or greasy.
Scent: “Succulent Cherry” does not have any discernible scent.
Longevity: Being a darker shade, lasting power is better than the other lipsticks I had tried in this range. I get over 5 hours before it starts fading. It fades evenly all over the lips though, which is good. It transfers very easily and will not survive an oily meal. It does not leave any tint on the lips.
Pros of Covergirl Succulent Cherry Colorlicious Lipstick:
- Beautiful red shade with a hint of orange.

- Glossy finish makes the lips look plumper.
