CoverGirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm – Review, Photos, Swatches

Covergirl Lipperfection Jumbo Gloss Balm 2

If you’ve read my recent interview with the lovely Danielle from Danimezza, you’ll know that her favourite drugstore beauty products are the CoverGirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balms. I hadn’t tried them, but was intrigued. As luck would have it, I was contacted by CoverGirl Australia and asked if I would be interested in reviewing them.

I was sent 4 shades to review – 215 Watermelon Twist; 220 Haute Pink Twist; 230 Berry Twist and 250 Scarlet Twist.

230 Berry Twist is an appropriately named sheer berry shade, and is my favourite of the 4 shades I have tried. It’s the perfect wearable, everyday shade, and has become a staple in my handbag.

 #250 Scarlet Twist

250 Scarlet Twist is a semi-sheer, orange-based tomato red. Although it’s a beautiful shade, I find it to be the least flattering on my cool-toned skin tone.

Packaging:

The CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balms are packaged in a twist-up, crayon style tube. As far as lip crayons go, this is my favourite style of packaging because there is no wasted product.

Texture:

The CoverGirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balms are smooth in texture and slightly waxy. Although they can catch slightly on any dry patches on my lips, I find them to be quite hydrating, and when they wear off my lips feel like they are in better condition than before I applied the balm. Although they are called “Gloss Balms”, they are not especially glossy, leaving my lips with more of a light sheen than any in-your-face glossiness.

Pigmentation/Ease of Application:

These Gloss Balms are designed to be a lightly pigmented, easy to wear, everyday lip colour, and they live up to their purpose beautifully. All 4 colours I have tried are lightly pigmented, making them very wearable and easy to apply on-the-go.

Longevity:

The light pigmentation and moisturising properties of these Gloss Balms mean they are not the longest lasting lip products, wearing off after about 3 hours, however they are so easy to apply without a mirror that I am not worried about reapplying when I’m out and about.

RRP:

$6.99USD; $12.95AUD
