Covergirl Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick ($7.99) are a new pigmented liquid lipstick that has a hybrid lipgloss and lipstick formula in the vein of Maybelline Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint and Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick.
I actually really loved Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint and I figured if Covergirl Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick was as good as that formula I’d be a happy girl. Covergirl released these in 12 shade selections that are available in some standard nudes, bold reds, and even some shades that aren’t fairly common to the drugstore world like purple and blue!
Let’s take a look!
Covergirl Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick launched with the Covergirl Summer 2017 Collection but was impossible to find in drugstores. I’ve been searching for these everywhere and finally, finally after adventure after adventure trying to find them I was able to locate them at my local Target.
Covergirl Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick are much like Maybelline Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint in packaging as they come housed in a squeeze tube with a slanted sponge application for application. Covergirl does gain points for being a smidge larger at 0.27 oz and a little cheaper at $7.99 versus Maybelline’s $9.99 price tag and 0.21 oz size. If I had to choose I’d probably go with Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint or L’Oreal Infallible Lip Paints! Covergirl’s formula is no slacker but I find L’Oreal and Maybelline’s formula a touch creamier, a bit more hydrating, and I felt like they had a nice shine to them which is lacking a bit in Covergirl’s formula.
None the less Covergirl’s still onto something here. These are fragrance and flavor-free and have a thick, creamy consistency that provides opaque, pigmented color on a single layer. The two shades I tried were beautifully pigmented. They apply very smoothly without falling into my natural lines and wear for a solid five hours. They aren’t a long-wearing matte formula but still don’t migrate or move during the wear and they do wear for a nice five hours without becoming tacky, patchy, or flaky. The formula is thick but not goopy and wears quite comfortably but isn’t terribly hydrating. The finish is that of a cream without any shimmer or glitter. They do have a very light shine to them but it quickly settles into a cream after a few minutes of wear.
All in all, Covergirl Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick is quite a lovely long-wearing pigmented lipstick! I do prefer Maybelline and L’Oreal’s formula if I had to choose but Covergirl isn’t a slacker here and performs very, very well not to mention they are quite a good deal cheaper than both of those.
Covergirl Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick are starting to launch now at drugstores.
