Review: Covergirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balms

A while back, I received 3 of Covergirl’s new LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balms and after trialling them over the busy holiday period, I thought it was about time for a review.

These Covergirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balms are similar in packaging to that of Clinique’s Chubby Sticks and Revlon’s Colorburst Balm Stains – fat crayons!

It looks like fat pencil and can be twisted up for more product. The lid of each shade is representative of the shade inside. Not an exact match but it gives you an idea.

I received 3 shades – Coral Twist, Cocoa Twist and Plum Twist.

Coral Twist – leaning more pink than orange, great for brightening up your complexion and can easily be built up

Cocoa Twist – a MLBB shade, would describe it as a honey-brown shade, not too nude, great for everyday wear

Plum Twist– perfect shade for Autumn, it’s a nice vampy, slightly cool, berry shade

My favourite shade out of the 3 is Coral Twist – I actually lost the one I received from the PR company so went out and purchased the same shade. That’s how much I love it!

These glide on easily, don’t tug at your lips and the coverage is sheer but can be built up. They’re glossy and even though they’re not the most moisturising product on the market, they aren’t exactly the most drying either.

Do make sure you prep your lips if you plan on wearing the brighter shades as I find that they do tend to cling onto any dry patches.

In terms of staying power, due to its gloss finish and balm-y nature, I get about an hour wear – that’s if I’m not consuming any food or drinks. However, if I do eat or drink something, either it comes off completely or leaves a very faint pink stain.

My biggest problem with these is that they break VERY easily. When I went to use Plum Twist, I was shocked to find that it had already broken away from the base. After several uses, Coral Twist did the same thing. I would understand if I had twisted the product up really high but I hadn’t.

Another con would be packaging-wise, the product names are only available on the plastic wrapping and once that’s removed, there’s only numbers on the bottom of the crayons. This is a minor issue but something that bothers me because I don’t remember numbers as easily as I remember names!
