Brand: Covergirl
Range: Lipslicks Smoochies Lip Balm
Shade: 235 Tru Luv
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Covergirl Lipslicks Smoochies Lip Balm is a tinted lip balm that glides on really smoothly leaving lips with a sheen with a “barely there” tint.
  • Available in 12 shades (see screenshot below), 235 Tru Luv is a sheer nude and has a noticeably waxy taste.
  • It’s both moisturising and waxy, but doesn’t smooth any lip lines making it more suitable for those who don’t have concerns with lip lines.
  • Verdict: I can see this being a hit among under 18 year olds, but the high wax content doesn’t agree with my 30-something lips, making them look worse (due to the wax accentuating lip lines) once all the moisture has absorbed.  The “barely there” sheer does “nude” out my flushed lip tone really well without being streaky.

Brand: Covergirl
Range: TruShine Lipstick (Discontinued in some countries)
Shades: 415 (Blushberry Shine) & 465 (Peach Shine)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • 465 (Peach Shine) is a peach shade, and a dupe of MAC’s “Dressmaker” (from the Pret-a-Papier collection)
  • 415 (Blushberry Shine) is more rose than peach as the swatch suggests.
  • Hydrating, glossy and smoothing. Very pigmented for a sheer texture.
  • It takes a lot for a lipstick to impress me, but this drugstore lipstick is certainly one I’d recommend.

The packaging is definitely for those young at heart!

415 – Blushberry Shine

465 – Peach Shine
Due to the sheer finish, 465 reveals more of my natural lip tone underneath, compared to MAC’s “Dressmaker” which has a creamier coverage.

I noticed this is discontinued in Covergirl’s official website. If this is discontinued in Australia too please let me know.

Brand: CoverGirl
Range: Continuous Color Lipstick
Shades: Really Red (575), Almost Nude (820)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Almost Nude: Creamy & pigmented. The down side is that it doesn’t sit well from direct application. (I used my finger to even out the application) and accentuates lip lines rather than smoothens it.
  • Really Red: A sheer blue-red that can be built up depending on the look you want. The down side was that the red stain took a bit of effort to remove from my lips (It would be an upside if you like to be left with a cherry lipstain)
  • In terms of hydration, of the two, Really Red lived up to its promise & delivered a glossy red finish without any lip balm.

Brand: CoverGirl
Range: Continuous Color Lipstick
Shade: 415 – Rose Quartz
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Super-reflective metallic finish
  • Applies evenly & doesn’t slide
  • Semi-hydrating & comfortable on lips
  • Light taste / scent – the kind that you don’t think about.
  • Since the finish is so reflective, I wouldn’t recommended this if you have deep lip lines (as it only accentuates it more)


The shine in this is not digitally enhanced. It’s very reflective!
