Like Rimmel, Covergirl should definitely enter into Indian market. Their products just rock and pricing is commendable considering the quality of the product.
I wanted to buy the MUA one but I am not a very big fan of the brand so I thought of picking up Covergirl lip stains instead. They have named them Jumbo gloss balm and the name reminds me of Jumbo pencil which I hoarded like anything and now I can’t seem to find them..

My experience with Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm Scarlet Twist:-
I chose the deeper shade because the brand claims to give sheer colour and soft shine. Sade Scarlet twist gives nice coverage and bit of initial shine.It’s pretty light weight and not very buttery but if I compare it with Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Stains then its almost similar.
Problem is with the staying power.They just last for a maximum of one and half hour on my lips which is kind of a disappointment.
Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm Scarlet Twist Swathes:-
Its a sheer glossy reddish coral shade which glides on beautifully and is very smooth in application but I do find the texture bit waxy.
Only disapointing thing with these jumbo balms or lips stain etc etc is that they can not be sharpened and when I lose the tip they remain kind of rounded off making the application not that even. I have trouble applying them on my cupid bow.
This is how it looks on me after fifteen minutes of application. You can see that glossiness just goes away and the red tint stay over.
Summing it up :-
What I like about Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm Scarlet Twist:-
- Decently priced
- Available in sixteen shades .
- Smooth in application
What I do not like about Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm Scarlet Twist:-
- It’s not long lasting
- Won’t work on pigmented lips
- Not available in India
Will I recommend it to others – Unless you are fond of reapplication you will be left a little disappointed with it.
