CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm: Swatches & Review

CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in 215 Watermelon Twist, 245 Ruby Twist, & 250 Scarlet Twist

CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm is again CG anser to the trend of gloss/lipstick products coming out this year and bright color option.Now there is a number o atural shades from what i can tell of the product caps (which are thankfully color coded). I my case I wanted something bright to ry out a it's easier to see on my pigmented lips if there is colour payoff. I picked these up for 8.99CAN at Zehrs. 

Again no daylight photo's as well are experience English winter in Southern Ontario this year. Overcast for weeks with rain/hail. >_< So no daylight photo's. :(

215 Watermelon Twist, 245 Ruby Twist, 250 Scarlet Twist

Product & colours
The colour is true to the bullet and the finish is silk but not heavy on the lips.

Wear: 5 hours wear total and about only 1 hour of the glossy look on the lips

Packaging: Twist up tube.

Compare: These remind be of the L'Oreal Colour Caresse by Colour Riche formula then anything else. The Jumbo Gloss Balm doesn't dry down as quickly however.

250 Scarlet Twist

Flash swatches: 215 Watermelon Twist, 245 Ruby Twist, & 250 Scarlet Twist with on stroke and block



Verdict:
Not long last and leave a subtle stain to the lips but much more pigmented then the rest of the Balm/gloss formulas in the market.

  1. So glad I found this review! I was shopping in the States about 3 weeks ago and I saw these at Walmart, but didn't pick one up for some reason. Ever since then, I have been wondering if they are available in Canada, so I am glad to hear they are available at Zehrs :) PS I also live in Southern Ontario!
