Maybelline Color Whisper and Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm Review

Hi Everyone, this is Cindy here and I will be doing a guest post for my sister. Today I will posting product reviews on the Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balms and the Maybelline Color Whispers. These products are currently new on the market so me being a lip product fanatic, I just had to snatch these up when I spotted them. Before I get started, I wanted to show you guys swatches off all the colors -
swatches
Berry Twist, Apricot Twist, Rose Attraction, Who wore it redder
And now onto the reviews-

230 Berry

The first product you see is one of the jumbo gloss balms, in 230 Berry. This is my favorite color that I have tried. I use it pretty much everyday for school. It gives great pigmentation, but not so harsh that I can't use it in the day time when I go out with my friends. I recommend this color for anyone that has fair to medium skin or enjoys berry tones.

240 Apricot

Next, is another gloss balm in 240 Apricot. This color is a must-have for the summer time. As you can see in the swatch, there is a hint of coral inside. Now most of you know coral and bright colors are in this summer season, so this product fits in well with the known trend. However, I'm not much of a trend follower, unless I truly like it. With that said, I don't wear this color on my lips as often as 230 Berry since I personally find berry to complement my skin tone better.



Overall, I really enjoyed these two products. Each stick packs a punch of color and my lips never feel dry or cracked when I have them on. One thing I slightly dislike about the product is not the product itself, but the packaging it is in. The cap to the product comes off too easily in my opinion and that worried me because I wouldn't want color to accidently get in my purse. However, I still do love the product and I know I will be getting a couple more shades to try out soon.

75 Rose Of Attraction

Now to the Maybelline Color Whispers. First you see color 75 Rose of Attraction. At one point I used to wear this color everyday. It's my lip color, but better. I find this shade to be so natural looking and perfect when I want to enhance my own lip color. With the color whispers, I don't have to worry about my lips being cracked when I put this on since it covers them up perfectly.

Who wore it red-er 45

Lastly, is the Color Whisper in 45 Who Wore it Red-Er. Now to answer the name, definitely you. As you can see on the swatch, it is a bright, bold lip choice. This color will make you stand out especially during the day time and at night. I would recommend wearing this color when you go out at night or if you have an important job meeting. This color is not straight up red, but instead has a tad bit of pink to tone it down. However, even with the added pink, this color is still extremely bold and can make you stand out in a crowd.



Overall, I liked the Maybelline Color Whisper, however, I don't think I will be expanding my collection with  Color Whispers. I feel that the colors are a bit too sheer for my taste and doesn't give enough variety. One thing I am in love in this product is the packaging! I love the font on the cap. It looks so slick and gives a romantic feel. I might actually buy this product just to have the lid haha!

  12. I think Berry Twist is a pretty color. I am trying to soothe myself into the more pinkish coral colors, but I just can't stay away from the berries and plum colors - they look so good on Asians :)

  16. I'll have to look into Covergirl! I just bought a color whisper and it's alright. I really prefer my MAC lip, but it's also about 10 dollars more!
