Confession: I wish that I could be super prompt with my reviews on makeup purchases. But I am not. I purchased this Covergirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm back in January! I wanted this shade, Haute Pink Twist, because it is the shade P!nk wears in the Covergirl ad. I just love P!nk, her look, her music, her persona, the whole package. Therefore, I needed to have this color!
The Covergirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm is a twist up lip color that claims to provide sheer color and soft shine. The Covergirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Haute Pink Twist actually does provide a sheer pink with one layer. If you apply a couple of layers you get a nice bright pink which is what I really wanted! It does have some shine to it and will need reapplying after drinking/eating. I don’t feel like it it is as moisturizing as a balm but not very drying either.
I do wish the Jumbo Gloss Balm had some kind of pleasant scent and flavor. Instead it has a not-so-great plastic/vintage lipstick type of scent. Thankfully it’s not really bad like the CoverGirl Blast Flipstick! The scent/taste does not really linger so I can still wear the Jumbo Gloss Balm quite happily.
Overall, I like Haute Pink Twist but I would not buy any more Covergirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balms. The lack of a pleasant taste/scent just doesn’t make these a favorite. Find these at retailers for around $6.99. I purchased this at my local Walmart.
