Want Perfect Lips? Try COVERGIRL's Lip Perfection line

I got a sneak peek of COVERGIRL's Lip Perfection line, including lip pencils and lipsticks, which will officially launch in your local retailers in January 2011, which by the time this is posted, you can probably find at your local drugstore. (It's also available for sale on COVERGIRL's website.) These products are perfect shades for the winter time and provide enough moisture when your lips need it most!
I was sent a few goodies from the line to try a range of shades. Overall, I found them to be long-lasting, semi-moisturizing and the shades to be very pigmented. The packaging was also very sleek- something I didn't expect from drugstore brands. I personally haven't worn a lot of drugstore brand lipsticks (except Sally Hansen & Carmindy's line before they discontinued the lipsticks..) recently, but I am very pleased with this modern look.

COVERGIRL's slogan for their Lip Perfection line boasts 7 days to soft, smooth, beautiful lips vs. bare lips. In this weather, bare lips is not acceptable! Take care of them with at least wearing some kind of lip butter to protect it from the cold/wind. Like I said the lipsticks were very moisturizing and had nice reflectors, making it shiny. The lipliners had a matte finished look but are also very creamy so you can essentially wear the lipliners as lipsticks if you choose to do so.

Here are some of the colors that I tried..

The Lip Perfection lipsticks shown here are Darling (a pretty angelic pink) & Captivate (a darker brown/red hue). Both lipsticks are a bit shimmery than I thought but they are quite pretty. Again the packaging is super sleek and pretty. If you can find your perfect shade, it makes even prettier to carry with! Overall, I found these colors to pretty opaque. I'm used to wearing lots of lip butters and tinted lip shades that go on super smooth. So when I tried these lipsticks without a lipbutter, I didn't find them as smooth and creamy on my lips. It didn't help that my lips were already dry, but I do recommend wearing a base. After I did, the lipsticks were super!

The lip pencils shown here are Radiant, Passion and Smoky. They are my new fave items for 2011, especially Smoky. A gorgeous nude color to wear everyday. These are more matte and are very very rich in color. These are quite moisturizing which is great. The color Passion (middle) is a bright red for those who dare to sport the bright red lips this season.

Here are the swatches, from left to right (Passion, Smoky, Captivate, Darling & Radiant)
Sorry my camera was a bit out of focus I realized here, but you get the idea ;)

My personal favorites? Smoky lip liner of course! Also Captivate is a great winter shade. It's reddish/brownish hue is incredible gorgeous with the right amount of shimmer! I've already seen these at my local drugstore, so check yours out today!
