Cover Girl Lip Perfection Lipsticks - Entwined & Kiss

Here I go again with another overdue post.
These Cover Girl lipsticks launched at the beginning of this year as far as I remembered. I've had these two lipticks over a month ago. There are soooo many shades to pick from and I must have gone back and forth trying to decide which ones to get, lol.

Here is what it claims to do:
"Bright, gorgeous color that can transform your day and your lips. Enriched with Silk Therapy Complex, our formula helps sustain moisture levels and helps create soft, smooth, beautiful lips in just 7 days."

  • I like the rectangular shape of it. It prevents my lipstick from rolling and falling
  • I think the color of the lipstick showing through on the base is helpful but can be misleading when purchasing.
  • Wide range of colors to choose from
  • Very pigmented
  • Apply smoothly
  • Feels creamy but not slippery
  • Long-wearing. I get 3+ hours of wear with these and they'll stain your lips.
  • Retails for about $6
  • Has a sweet coconutty scent, similar to Maybelline ColorSensational. It doesn't smell as bad as the Colorsensational lipsticks IMO but the strong scent can be overpowering for some.

Entwined looks very dark and scarry in the tube, lol, but I think it looks beautiful once on my lips. The color is medium plum that leans more red. It has a satin finish.

Kiss is frosty coral. This color is so obnoxiously frosty and reflect so much light that I feel like I have high beams on my lips, lol. I would recommend you either skip shade or use a gloss on top of it to make it less shiny.


At first, I was very impressed at how smootly and evenly the color applies on my lips. I was also very pleased at the pigmentation. It feels really good on my lips when I first applied it. The sad thing is I don't think it does what it promises to do. My lips felt quite dry after an hour, even when I have primed them with a lipbalm prior to using the lipstick. I can't apply more lipstick on top of it because it would only emphasize my dried chapped lips. At this point, I would normally just apply more lipbalm.
I've heard great reviews about this lipstick but personally it really doesn't have enough moisturizing agent for me. My rating 6/10. I would have given this lipstick a higher rating if it was more moisturizing like it claims and less frosty (in some shade).  


  1. Seriously, I think you do the best lip product reviews! Love the swatches and honest opinions :) I'm not a fan of frosty or dark berry colors so I think I'll skip these. I might try out some of the cream colors that are lighter like Heaven and Delish though. Hopefully those are a bit more moisturizing :/

  2. excellent review, you pointed out great aspects to take into consideration. I was more leaned to gt the lip glosses but I might get the Entwined, it looks gorgeous on you! :)

  3. the first one definitely looks better on the lips then the tube

  4. You do amazing reviews. Entwined is really pretty but if it will dry out the lips is it worth it. I bet pairing it with a moisturizing lip gloss might work.

  5. Thanks ladies...yeah using a lipgloss or lip balm definitely helps but on its own...not moisturizing enough for me.
