Covergirl Colorlicious Lipstick is a new Spring 2015 permanent Covergirl Lipstick Collection that’s popping up at drugstores now. Covergirl is obviously taking the Colorlicious idea and running with it this year as they have brand new Colorlicious Lip Lava Lipglosses out now as well as the original Colorlicious Lipglosses that launched earlier this year. So why not a Colorlicious Lipstick right?
The Covergirl Colorlicious Lipstick is available in a plum, nude, reds, and pinks shade selections. It appears to be about 40 shades total that are launching from what I’ve seen at drugstores. Unfortunately, the display at Harmons was picked over rather badly as people had opened and swatches colors so I was limited to purchasing two colors only and ended up test driving one since one of the shades I didn’t really love.
Honestly for me these just remind me of a slightly revamped Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick formula. I actually don’t like what I’ve tried so far but might have to give more shades a try before deciding completely. But for now, this is my experience with the shade I did try (I’ll revise this review if anything changes). As you can see the packaging is the same square barrel that the original Lip Perfections come in but done up in a solid color that represents the shade inside. The tubes have a clear lower barrel that shows the shade inside but unfortunately, I feel like the shades are slightly different within the tube. For example, I purchased Ravishing Rose which looked like a pretty dusky rose but inside is a lighter pink frosty rose.
Strangely enough I got two frost shades which never look good on me. These were sealed so I didn’t want to crack them open prior to purchasing them so I had no way of knowing about the frost finish. Le sigh!

They have a light plastic-y vanilla fragrance and flavor which isn’t terribly pleasant so beware sensitive users. The texture is creamy, soft, and slightly balm once applied. The formula doesn’t drag during application and applies beautifully however, the texture ages my lips for some reason as it falls into my natural lip line and looks very on. I dislike the texture with a passion as it’s a formula that makes itself very well known on lips. It’s not necessarily heavy but it isn’t lightweight either. Pigmentation is quite good with full opacity on a single pass.
Again, I’ve only tried one shade but so far Covergirl Colorlicious Lipstick disappoints. Covergirl isn’t really my favorite drugstore brand to be honest so it’s no great surprise I dislike these lipsticks. I am however, willing to try a few more shades and give them a second chance just to see if the issues I experienced were isolated to the color I choose. I’ll update you when I do!
Anyone try them?
