 L-R: Kiss 275, Coquette 375, Rich 295

 Kiss (frosty coral)

Coquette (shimmery medium mauvey-rose)

Rich (shimmery medium nude)

  • pigmented
  • non-drying
  • creamy formula 
  • last a few hours
  • sleek packaging

  • expensive for a drugstore lipstick 
  • the shades I have tried tend to look a bit frosty
  • not moisturizing enough if you have really dry lips (like me)

What I think:

All of the shades I tried go on creamy and last a good amount of time on the lips, and they only require one swipe on the lips to show their true color. However, they tend to be frosty, and thus, they do settle into fine lines.

Altough the lipsticks aren't moisturizing enough to completely eliminate the use of a lip balm, they doesn't dry my awfully dehydrated lips, which is an absolute must for me. I still wish they were more moisturizing, and I would have like a more shiny finish, but I guess I was just excepting more.

To me, the scent is just the usual lipstick scent; nothing too agressive or disturbing. It doesn't really taste something either.

The metallic-like case feels luxurious for a drugstore product, even though it's not as heavy as it appears to be. I like the fact that you can see the color of the lipstick at the bottom of the tube (just like NYX Round Lipticks), and the square shape is nice and sleek.

I'm not sure about the whole 7 days claim, as these lipsticks didn't seem to have drastically improved my lips' condition.

  3. Very nice review! You take amazing photos!!! These shades all look really lovely on you! I have been eyeing these at the drugstore for quite awhile now. I might have to pick up Coquette! :)

  4. Really pretty lip swatches!!!
    Covergirl actually has some really nice stuff. IN the first few pictures it looked such good quality i didnt even realise it was covergirl!!

  5. All 3 colors look lovely in the tube. I love coquette on you. Great pictures and swatches.

  6. the lip swatches are gorgeous. the colors suit your lips beautifully. i love this lipstick too and its packaging. i agree with you about it not being too moisturizing. i do like the gorgeous colors though. i noticed there's quite a selection as well. :)

  7. i feel like eating the sticks lol!! love how every picture is so detailed great help for choosing the product :)

  8. @Shang J.: Aww thank you, I'm glad you liked this post (=

    @Chloé : Ils ne m'ont pas asséché les lèvres encore plus, mais je ne dirais pas qu'ils sont hydratants non plus. J'ai toujours besoin d'un baume à lèvre en dessous.

    @Pammy (PammyBlogsBeauty): Thanks Pammy, I'm glad you like my pictures. Yes, Coquette is very pretty!

    @Jordy's Beauty Spot : Yes I was impressed by the packaging too, pretty good for a drugstore product.

    @Kristie : Thanks! Coquette is very pretty (=

    @Jannie: Yes, I'm impressed by the huge color selection. I wasn't too disappointed about their moisturizing propertie sthough as I'm not used to rely on lipstick for moisture.

    @Peach Crush: I'm glad you like my pictures, and I'm happy they could help (=

  9. The non-frosty ones are a lot creamier and less drying. I took Sweetheart with me in an overnight bag and I was getting really annoyed at how drying it is! I don't have that problem with any of the non-frosty ones though... try Siren, it's gorgeous!

  10. @Cydonian : Thanks girl, I'll be sure to check it out x

  11. wow, those look gorgeous! It doesn't look drying on your lips at all, I've yet to find a decent drugstore lipstick that is good for my chappy lips :x

  12. @SiSi Sparkles : I wouldn't say they are drying, but I still needed to apply a lipbalm before the lipstick to ensure my lips stay moisturized.

  13. Waw! Super beaux ces rouges à lèvres! Dommage qu'il n'y ai pas CoverGirl en france :/

  14. great review! excellent pics!

  15. @Mara : Je suis toujours étonnée d'entendre que CoverGirl n'est pas disponible partout. C'est tellement une grosse marque pourtant 0=

    @Aly: Thanks Aly, I'm glad you liked it (=
