Hi lovely ladies…first of all let me introduce myself. Iam Samaira, Iam from Mumbai and am a Banker by profession. Since last two-three years Iam following Wise She blog and I am now totally hooked to it. This is my first review for this blog so I was thinking so as to write about which product in my vanity? I zeroised on the captioned lipstick i.e. Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in shade no.310, Smitten Amoureuse. Covergirl cosmetics are not available in India, so last year when we visited Canada on my hubby’s LFC tour I laid my hands upon this beauty, lets see how it fared on me?

- Price: $6 for 1.2 oz of product.You can but it from here
- Shade: Smitten is an opaque, medium-dark, pink plum shade having a slightly glossy sheen. It is very rich in pigmentation. Plummy tones really work well for my dusky skin tone and make this pink more wearable and colorful as well for me.
- Packaging: Packaging is simple and features a metallic-like case. The case is in chrome finish and is a square shaped bullet. The cap snap tightly and makes it travel friendly At the end of the bullet there is a transparent casing through which you can easily see the color. The color sample on the bottom is pretty much spot on for what color the stick is (unlike some brands that have the color sticker on the bottom instead). However the case is bit flimsy and you can see scratches on it very soon which kinds of look cheap.
Smell: Mild and fruity one.
Texture: Non-sticky Thick, Creamy, buttery smooth.
My take on COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lipstick 310 Smitten Amoureuse:
The lipstick is super light weight, creamy rich and glides on the lips effortlessly. This product is insanely pigmented so I need only one swipe to get full burst of colour. This beauty get full scores on colour pay-off front. Staying power is also very good it stay put upto 5-6 hours easily after which it started fading.
However since this lippy stains so your lips are never ever devoid of any colour. Stains are the subtle version of the original colour and not hot pinks like Velvett Matte range of Colorbar. Since the formula is on creamier side it neither tugs or pulls the lips rather give a moisturized feel to the lips. However I’ve observed one thing that after some time it started bleeding so using lipliner with this one is a must for me.
What I like about COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lipstick 310 Smitten Amoureuse:-
- Creamy, buttery smooth formula.
- Never accentuate imperfections of the lips.
- Super pigmented, super colour pay-off.
- Lovely shade.
- Non drying.Moisturizing on the lips.
- Good staying power.
- Value for money.
What I don’t like about COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lipstick 310 Smitten Amoureuse:-
- Non-availability in India (Not sure about online shopping though).
- Bleeds from edges of lips if not applied in conjunction with lip liner.
- The case is a bit flimsy so you can see scratches on it very soon.
Rating: 4.5/5(deducting 0.5 marks for its non-availability in India).
Do I recommend this?
Yes, I do. I myself am getting a one but in some different shade. They have mind boggling 44 shades to offer
