This review is all about the scale as in 10 being the best and 1 being the worst and how each trait of these COVERGIRL Melting Pout Mattes ($6.99 @ covergirl.com, target.com) tests out. I’m going to rate each aspect of these liquid lipsticks on that scale.
The formula of these liquid lipsticks is a mousse and when it comes to pigment, these were about a 6, which is sometimes a nice alternative since there seems to be a competition between who can out-pigment who these days!
On the comfort scale, I’d give these a 8 (1 is suffocation and 10 is I’m not wearing anything on my lips).
Like most liquid lipstick, the lighter colors wear better (less streaky) than the darker colors. I did find with a few of the berry shades like All Nighter, that after I apply them, I quickly blot and then it’s even on the lips and looks better.
On the longevity scales, the lighter shades of these didn’t seem to last past about 4 hours, which is not that great, and the darker shades wore about the same.
Overall, I’d give these a 6 out of 10. So they didn’t fare the best but I really did like the All Nighter “stain” out of the bunch as seen in the picture.
