Covergirl Verve Violet Colorlicious Lipstick Review

This is the nastiest lipstick that I have ever tried and I threw it right out of my vanity. I can’t begin to explain that what all is wrong with this lipstick and how it is not meant for most of the skin tones, except the unusually pale ones. This shade made me vow to never buy Covergirl lipsticks ever again. Keep reading to know, why I despise this product so much.

My Take on Covergirl Verve Violet Colorlicious Lipstick:

Most drug stores that sell Covergirl products, have a huge array of these particular lipsticks displayed in a tasteful manner. Since, the packaging is also appealing, one invariably checks them out and chooses a color or two just based on the lid color, then happily walks home with the new purchase. Later, you remove the cellophane wrapper(so that there is no option of return) and swatch it only to find the awful shade that makes one look the scary version of Nicky Minaj.

The packaging is the only reason, why I bought this product at the first place. It looks sophisticated and is (supposedly) in the color of the lipstick, which makes the selection easier, if one does end up using this product and adding it to their vanity.

It is creamy, but not that buttery and does tug a little while applying. A thin layer of lip balm makes the process easier. The stub appears frosty and it indeed is frosty to the point that it appears unnatural and tacky.

I despise the color, as it is lavender with too much of white undertones and frosting.

It has a good pigment but it is of no use since I do not like the product. But if someone does happen to like the product, then they might appreciate this feature.

Shimmer and Shine:
It has a frosty, white finish and would go only with extremely fair and pale beauties.

The product has no fragrance, which I personally like.

Wear Time:
It stays long. But honestly, I don’t know how it wears between meals, since I could not bear to wear the color for that long.

This product might be good, but the shade is really disappointing. When I tried few other shades, I realized that most of them have a frosty finish and are not meant for my complexion. It would be a disappointing product for most of the readers.

  • Variety of shades for various skin tones.
  • Not that expensive.
  • Might look good on fair complexion beauties.

Cons of Covergirl Verve Violet Colorlicious Lipstick:

  • Quantity is not that appreciable.
  • Has a frosty finish.
  • Too much of white undertones.

Would I Repurchase Covergirl Verve Violet Colorlicious Lipstick?
No way. There is plenty wrong with this product and it is disappointing that a brand like Covergirl would come up with a product like this. This lipstick is a niche product, which is not meant for most of the skin tones and will be a let down for most. The fair skin tone girls can try it out because it might look pretty on them.
