Covergirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm – Haute Pink Twist

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!

DSC03381 The Covergirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm is a twist up lip color that claims to provide sheer color and soft shine.covergirl haute pink twist covergirl jumbo gloss balm swatches covergirl lip perfection jumbo gloss balm swatch reviewThe 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.

Product purchased by me, all opinions are my own.

Have you tried Covergirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balms?

    I like the Jumbo size and color of this very much! Every lip product had some scent back in my prime makeup wearing days so I do not mind a slight vintage scent. lol
