You Light Up My Face: CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balm #250
There’s nothing like a bright lip colour to brighten my day. On this day, the colour of choice was a sheer red, #250 Covergirl Jumbo Gloss Balm.
Similar to the Clinique Chubby Sticks, the Gloss Balms look like thick lip pencils. They glide on like lipstick and offer the shine of gloss.This sheer red added the perfect amount of colour to waken up my makeup-less face. I think this colour is ideal for those who want to try wearing a red but aren’t ready to fully commit to a statement lip.
The product feels nice on my lips and I love the glossy shine. If you’re looking for a long-wearing product, however, this isn’t it. I find the Clinique products to last longer. These contain Shea and Mango butters so they feel very moisturizing. What I also love about this is that you don’t need to sharpen. Just simply twist up and you get more product.
Priced at about $9, these are a fantastic buy.
Have you tried the Covergirl Jumbo Gloss Balms? Any colour recommendations?
