Packaging:- The CoverGirl lipstick comes in a stylish metallic brown colored packaging, The long plastic cap closes nicely with the base and keeps the bullet secure.
There is clear glass bottom filled with lipstick which reflects the shade of bullet inside and hence makes it easy to locate and arrange the lipsticks if you own more than one. The name of the lipstick is engraved the bottom of the lipstick. The packaging is smart, sturdy and convenient to use.
My experience with CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick Heavenly:-
Heavenly is a soft rosy pink shade in creamy finish. The shade lies in the range of neutral pinks with no peachy or fuchsia undertones. It looks more neutral and muted and a bit peachy in the bullet but comes as a medium pink on lips. NYX Pinky Nude Lip gloss (Review Here) is bit darker, brighter and has a super glossy finish, Diana Of London Lip liner in Rose Blush (Review Here) is more bright, has cool undertones and has matte finish, Revlon Colorburst Rosy Nude (Review Here) is warmer and has peachy-brown undertones.
The lipstick has a nice creamy formula and the bullet glides easily but it has some graininess in the texture which doesn’t let the lipstick give that smooth creamy finish. The strange unevenness feels slightly uncomfortable during application and gives a freckled look to the lips which makes them look unhealthy. The formula provides medium coverage, and builds to its maximum opacity in 2-3 swipes. The coverage isn’t sheer but it isn’t fully opaque too, as I could still see a hint of my lips natural color peeks through.
The formula feels moisturizing to the lips and doesn’t make lips feel dry even hours after application. The color lasts a long time especially being a crème lipstick and it left me surprised to see amount of color that was still there on lips post-meals. It just wasn’t ready to leave my lips and was going strong even after 6-7 hours of wear. The formula clings to the lips and refuses to move. I am highly impressed with the lasting power of this crème finish lipstick
The color though is really pretty but doesn’t work for me as is; I have to pair with heavy pink or peachy-pink blush. It is sort of a neutralizing shade that wouldn’t work on its own but would look brilliant with heavy eye makeup to give a balanced look. It will look much brighter and flattering fairer skin tones but for my medium skin tone, it doesn’t look effortlessly beautiful.
Here, is how it looked on me..
Pros of CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick Heavenly:-
- Glides smoothly
- Decently moisturizing
- Gives subtle shine with creamy finish
- Extraordinary staying time.
- Stylish Packaging
- Easy to locate with color coded bottom
- Easy on pocket
- Makes a great shade for everyday/day time lip color (but for fair-skinned girls)
- Awesome color selection
Cons of CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick Heavenly:-
- Grainy texture gives a freckled finish
- Provides medium coverage
- Would washout dusky skin tone
Recommendation:- CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick Heavenly is a gorgeous soft medium pink lipstick with a creamy finish and subtle shine. It has wonderful packaging, moisturizing formula and nearly opaque color coverage but the unusual graininess in the texture comes in the way of smooth application and results in freckled look. However, the formula clings to the lips and refuses to leave which makes the color last long and its stays well for 6 hours and still going strong.
It is a great budget option, and makes a great go to lipstick for fairer skin tones and they don’t have to think twice before putting it on but doesn’t compliment warm Indian skin tones well. It is a pretty pink but doesn’t qualify to be one of my favorite pinks.
