“ Brand: Cover Girl / Type: Lipgloss „
I got this Cover Girl lipgloss as a present from a distant friend for my birthday one year. I´d not really heard of Cover Girl make up before but a magazine in that name sounds a little familiar, unless Im imagining things.
This lip gloss, called Wet Slicks Gloss comes in a plastic squeezy clear tube with a little girly floral pattern on. Something that I quite like having in my hand bag. My particular one is a slightly different one to the one in the picture, maybe a sub-brand of the Wet Slicks Gloss called Fruit Spritzers. I think this maybe have been a remix of the origional as it looks as though this one has a little more glimmer and looks alot ´creamier`than the origional Wet Slicks Gloss.
I have this lip gloss in Berry Splash, which is a mild pinky colour with a nice tint of sheer something I really like. Im sure there will be a range of colours in this gloss to suit everyones skin tones and tastes.
This lip gloss is one with a lid that you twist off and squeeze and apply directly to your lips with no wand, which makes things pretty easy.
Whats quite different about this lip gloss compared to most is the shape of the applicator. It is round rather than straight and on an angle. I found that applying this lip gloss was really easy, wasnt sticky and just went on my lips like a dream. This lip gloss gets top marks for its quality of application.
Once this gloss was on, I found that it gave my lips a lovely shimmer and didnt make my lips feel sticky or that wet kind of feeling your lips get when you have just put gloss on.
I found that after having this gloss for a few months that my opinion did not change and I still really liked it. I didnt know much about Cover Girl make up before having this gloss, but what I do know of it I love. I loved the little differences about the gloss and the actual difference it made to the application process and how it made my lips feel and look.
I wouldnt mind trying more Cover Girl products, however we dont seem to have them in my area. Maybe I will try online someday, when I run out of a particular product and want to try something new.
I use this lip gloss. Well i think it is very good lip gloss. It has everything which a perfect lip gloss should have like its colour is very attractive and a natural lip colour and also the packaging is very nice which ensures us that the product ids orignal.
It is long lasting and the taste is also very good.Its a tasty lip gloss however i suggest u not to lick it again n again as it is bit expensive to eat hahaha.
Well it has very smooth applicator. Like the foam which is at the top of the applicator is really very soft and you can apply it very easily.
The fragrance is good and its worth to buy. Its a branded product so you can also gift this product to your friends and relatives.
I highly recommend you to try it I am quiet sure that you wil like it.Cheers
I had never heard of Cover Girl make-up products before I found this in my big bag of Christmas goodies. I know, I'm no girl and certainly not a 'Cover Girl' but what the hell, this older and middle page female wanted to give it a whirl!
~ Cover Girl ~
Cover Girl provide quite a large array of cosmetics for lips, nails, eyes and face.
I was quite impressed by their website which is very comprehensive except for listing prices and since it is a US based company it only lists US stockists, not UK ones.
It's worth a visit if you are interested in make-up: www.covergirl.com
~ Price ~
Since this was a present I don't know the exact price that was paid for this particular one but I have since seen them in one 'saver-type' store at a knock-down price of £1.99. These usually retail at £4.99 but it's well worth shopping around if you, like me love to scavange around for bargains!
There are also a few websites that sell this product but just watch out for the P&P charges. One such website is www.buycosmetics.com but be warned there are sometimes limited colours available.
~ Packaging ~
This gloss comes attached to some cardboard with Covergirl emblazoned along the side of it.
The gloss is easily 'ripped' away from the backing card. The gloss itself is like most standard glosses on the market. The bottom section is transparent so that you can see the colour of the gloss that you are getting and the top has a 'dazzling' silver screw top lid!
It has to be pointed out at this stage that it doesn't look a bit like the phot shown by dooyoo which is a tube versions.
~ What is Wetslicks Gloss? ~
Below are some of the statements that have been made to market this product:
* Provides non-sticky shine.
* Gives lasting hi-beam shine.
* Feels like a balm
* Pure colour
* Scented shades
There are 26 colours available in Wetslicks Gloss ranging from pinks, natural shades, peach etc..
~ My Experience ~
I have the Snow Drop shade. In the holder, this looks creamy / white with lots of silver sparkles in it.
The gloss is very easy to apply and doesn't give a horrible sticky feeling that some glosses tend to do.
It has to be said that I absolutely love the smell of it. It is a combination of almond and coconut and I love it, reminding me of summer days, which is a bonus in this weather!
When applied, the gloss is almost transluscent and certainly isn't white or cream. It does have little sparkly bits in it so much more of a night time gloss than an daytime 'at work' gloss, depending obviously on your job!
So why then, have I given it only 3 stars?
In short, this is due to the fact that it doesn't stay on for very long at all. I would say ten minutes max, so unless you aren't bothered about re-applying in front of everyone (something I don't like doing but lots of my friends do) or you want to keep popping to the toilets every 10 minutes, this gloss really doesn't give 'hi-beam shine' for long at all.
It's great when first applied, looking glossy, a tad sparkly and diffusing a fab smell but quite frankly it's a pain when it keeps disappearing from your lips.
If you want instant gloss, shine etc and aren't bothered by the short time it stays on then this is the one for you. I still use this for two reasons:
a) I hate waste
b) The smell
It may be my fault that it doesn't stay on for long as I tend to lick my lips quite a bit without even realising it so I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has had a different experience with the gloss.
