Sunday exhaustion has definitely set in, as today was very much a lazy day at my house. The most I did today was get out and take one of our dogs for a walk around the neighborhood. Since I’m feeling pretty exhausted from the busy weekend, I wanted to do a “quickie review” of this amazing lipstick I came across. Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in “Delish” is such a fantastic nude lip color for a bargain price. You can find this at the drugstore for under $7, and it puts down remarkably smooth, neutral color.
Delish is a light nude-brown shade, that actually looks a bit darker in the packaging versus when it is actually applied. It’s a really flattering shade for all complexions because it doesn’t lean too warm or too cool. On fair skin, it will look a bit darker, and on darker skin tones, it will look lighter. This gives me the famous “bombshell” nude lip look that I absolutely love. Think: Lana Del Rey, Twiggy’s signature look from the 60’s, and Kim Kardashian’s famous nude lip. It’s the perfect lip color to combine with heavier eye makeup, and it will work well with really colorful looks on the eyes as well.
It almost has a peachy-brown tone to it, which is probably what helps make it flattering. It was really opaque in just one swipe, and it feels soft on your lips. The only thing I dislike about the Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks are the scent. It’s not unbearable, but it does have a bit of an off-putting, synthetic smell to it.
On the lips, it makes your pucker look much larger than it really is. My favorite trick to make my lips look much larger than they really are is to line my lips using a nude lip liner, just slightly darker than this lipstick color, and then fill my lips in with this lipstick. It really gives you the illusion of much larger, plumper lips.
Overall: This is a great bargain-priced, drugstore available nude lipstick shade that happens to be flattering on a variety of skin tones. It has a peach-tone to it that flatters the complexion without washing all the color out of your face like some nude lipsticks can do.
Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in “Delish” is available at drugstores and mass retailers nationwide. Each lipstick retails for $7.00 USD and under. I believe I paid closer to $5 for mine at my local Walmart. I really enjoy this shade and I keep it on my vanity makeup stash of products I use regularly.
