Covergirl Colorlicious Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Covergirl Colorlicious Lipgloss

Covergirl Colorlicious Lipgloss ($7.99) is a new Summer 2014 Lipgloss formula that’s popping up at drugstores now in 13 shades. I think Covergirl is a little lacking in the gloss department so a new range of juicy lipglosses for Summer sounds like a great idea to me.

The Covergirl Colorlicious Lipgloss Collection promises a highly glossy and pigmented finish with a moisturizing formula. They call the packaging a true to tube color so what you see in tubes is what you get on lips.

I disagree with some of the marketing on these so let’s take a look at my review!

Covergirl Colorlicious Lipgloss are a thinner non sticky lightweight gloss with a sheer finish. These have a sweet vanilla flavor and fragrance that’s quite strong but fades fairly quickly after application. They are marketed as a pigmented formula however, I do think they run sheerer and even some of the darker shades that a friend purchased for me are translucent enough that my natural lip color peeps through!

I think by drugstore gloss formula standards this is a fairly nice one. It’s thin, very comfortable on lips with zero tackiness or stickiness. It’s incredibly lightweight and has a nice bit of color (I wouldn’t say medium but it can be built nicely) but not full opaque coverage. The sponge applicator saturates well with color and applies product nicely to lips. They also feel nicely hydrating on my drier lips with a smooth, even finish with a nice bit of shine and glossiness.

Unfortunately, they wear for about an hour at best before they slip and slide away. They don’t migrate or feather during the wear but they do just sort of disappear after 60 or so minutes. The gloss formula is a bit too thin for longer wear and also the lack of tackiness means they aren’t adhering well to lips so they just kinda fade away quickly.

If you like lighter glosses and don’t mind the shorter wear you might just enjoy Covergirl Colorlicious Lipgloss. For some I think the scent and flavor will be a deal breaker as well as the short wear. On the upside they are nicely glossy with a lighter texture that’s ideal for Summer wearing when you don’t want a ton of sticky, heavy gloss on your lips!

These are available now at drugstores.

    I was so excited when I saw the swatches but now I’m just meh. I was so hoping they’d be more opaque and longer lasti. They would have been perfect if they were!

    I really like Juicy Fruit! They all look pretty on you. I like sheer glosses like this and don’t mind reapplying them. Maybe I’ll have to try these out. I’ve been wearing a lot of tinted balms lately, but I still love a nice sheer gloss.

    I picked up a few of these glosses! I am in love with them! I have Fruitylicious and it lasted me more then 4 hours. I could still see some of the shade and the gloss was still on my lips after 4 hours. I have not tried the other shades but Fruitylicous is great. I also like the formula of these. It is non sticy which I love in glosses!

    Looks like Revlon still reigns supreme at the drugstore for gloss. (At least, for me, anyway! XD)

    Sweet Strawberry is beautiful on you! I was hoping to be a bit more impressed with these…they seem fine, but nothing special. Thanks for the review!

    The packaging and shimmery formula reminds me of the Neutrogena MoistureShine gloss!

    I’d like some advice,plz? Haven’t ever been into makeup & all of a sudden I’m obsessed BUT I don’t know to much about it. & I’ve NEVER even worn mac, feel like I have been missing out. I don’t like my lips shiny for some reason,maybe it’s my skin tone? It doesn’t look good on me. matte colors look better on me.my favorite lip stick Revlon colorstay in Endless Spice & a few outlasts by cover girl. I JUST HAVE TO HAVE A LIP STICK THAT STAYS ON. Also I LOVE the buffs by maybelline,kindareminds me of lip colors JLo wares on American Idol. With all that being said. Do you know a good natural/neutrals matte gloss? I do have the give me guava & I love it bcuz of smell & it’s not too shiny.I do like some lip glosses & this was one of the few. Also what do you mean by “pigmented finish”?.
