Most Helpful Positive Review Great lipsticks
I bought two of this lipsticks on clearance at my local Ulta, 324 Tantalize (like a dark mauve) and 280 Rapture (peach like color), see pictures :). I haven't used Cover Girl lipstick ever, but the colors look really nice, and I was looking for a peachy color and as they were in clearance the price was great.
I will be honest I was a bit skeptical due to the fact that Cover Girl eye-shadows don't tend to have much pigment, but really liked the colors. To my surprise, this lipsticks are super pigmented, the color pop in a beautiful way. They glide on very smoothly, both end up looking kind of matte/silky finish, but feel very silky. And for not being a long lasting lipstick, they have staying power, and they don't bleed at all. And if smell is a thing for you, they have a sweet smell, kind of like cotton candy, I just get a candy idea hahaha.
One thing to keep in mind, like most lipsticks, if your lips are dry or chapped, this lipstick will magnify the situation, so try to be as hydrated (inside and out) as much as possible.
Most Helpful Critical Review Cream does not equal chunky glitter.
I bought the color 275 coffee crave since I love browns. The tube said it was a cream finish so I assumed it was a cream finish, how wrong I was. It is not a cream finish, it is a glitter finish. It is full of chunky gold glitter that makes the lipstick feel like a scrub. And the glitter sticks to the lips even after removing the lipstick color with an oil. Such a disappointment.

I bought Riot for my daughter's first lipstick. She is 11. It stays on her all day through meals and such, the only variable is greasy food. When she wants to take it off, she simply uses a makeup wipe. She said it doesn't dry her lips. The matte effect is true

I bought 2 colors and neither of them lasted for more than a couple of hours. I do not smoke and I did not eat anything.

I have bought #365...
Pamby from Council Bluffs, IA
I have bought #365 Enchantress (not blush) for many years and always got compliments from friends. Now apparently Covergirl doesn't offer it anymore and now sell as the same number but the color is absolutely not the same. It is called Enchantress Blush and I do not like it. I have looked at multiple different brands with no luck finding any color the same as the plain old "Enchantress" I used to buy from Covergirl. I wish products didn't have to change! If anyone knows where I can still get the plain "Enchantress" please share, it would greatly be appreciated. I only gave two stars because if the replacement color otherwise this product is great.
Best long lasting lipstick i ever tried!
Nadine23 from Italy
Bought the color "the real thing", and it has become one of my favourite reds and lipstick formula. At first it goes on like butter, so it's really easy to fill in my lips even without a lipliner, then after a minute it goes matt and it doesn't move anymore. It lasts more than some of my liquid lipstick while still being super confortable, and it even survived lunch without fading (maybe just a bit in the center). Will definitly buy more colors :)

I thought the Coffee Crave color was in the brown family. It's not. Its a rose color with big gold glitter chunks in it. The gold glitter migrated all over my face and chin. Awful. Not at all what I was expecting. Glad I didn't pay full price for it. Will toss it.
Moisturizing and long lasting
Maheen from Markham, Ontario
Loved the coverage and smoothness. Stayed on for a good 8 hours without having to do any touch up.

I absolutely love the shimmery sheen and soft pink shade. It is darling.
I Can't Find My Color Any Longer!
Steph33 from Naples
I have been using your #370 Verve Violet Cream color lipstick for years. Now I can't find it anywhere. It's in none of the stores. I tried another shade and it was too pink. HELP!!
Robina22 from Mebane North Carolina
I really really really love the color kiss of peach....Number 277!!!!! I cant find it anywhere!!! covergirl...it must be popular....so please please please make more!!! does anyone have any i could buy?
Not the advertised color!
linparrish2 from US
I was really disappointed in the shade Sweetheart Blush. It looks like it would be a nice pink shade but was so metallic and sliver colored on my lips. Came to read reviews and I see another customer had the exact same experience with this shade. Covergirl, you really need to either label this as a metallic or change the formula because it looks nothing like the photos. So strange because it honestly looks completely different on the lips!
Does not last 24 hours
Babs68 from CT
I was so excited to find a nude color that worked for me. That said, nothing else worked about this lipstick. It barely lasted 3 hours. It was all over my coffee cup and defeats the purpose of a 24 hour lipstick having to reapply at all. Going back to maybelline.... Usually like Cover Girl products, but this is a flop.
Nicunurse2980 from Miami
This product barely lasts an hour, 24 hours is a joke. The lipstick makes your lips feel like chalk and leaves a nasty ring around your lips. I'm very surprised and disappointed in cover girl. I'm usually a cover girl fan, but this product fell flat. I bought 3 different colors and dislike the results on all of them. Number 690 soloist soliste was clumpy on my lips. Definitely don't recommend
Stays on absolutely non-drying
MAFV from Manila, Philippines
I have dry lips, and when I put on these matte long staying lipsticks my lips would take a beating after, and what I hate most is the lipstick may stay, but my lips crack and you see dry skin with the lipstick! ugh!
But not this one!
This is an awesome lipstick that really stays on and doesn't crack my lips!
I usually do put on a mask over my lips before I apply this, but it doesn't change the application, look and feel of the lipstick.
I hate retouching, especially red lips - this silver my issue on that and I've never been happier!
Who says drugstore brands can't be awesome! I'm suppose sold on this! Hope it comes to Asia soon!
Linda23 from Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada
I purchased 390 Sweetheart Blush - Cream lipstick today and was absolutely shocked and disappointed to find that the color was so silvery metallic that it was hard to see that the lipstick was pink. I will be returning this to the store and trying to get my money back.
Rachelb0523 from Denver
Bought this thinking nothing. Wore it out one night out drinking who knows what not. Woke up and it was this fricking close to flawless the next morning. Like I just put a little more on the next morning. I was amazed!!!
Does not last
treiprich from Lake Ariel, PA
I bought this lipstick and was seriously disappointed. It is not really matte nor does it stay on for one hour, never mind 24 hours. It wears off quickly leaving a ring on the outside of my lips. I will not purchase this brand again.
I was surprised!
JayGJ2 from California
I have this lipstick in "Stay with me" and "The Real Thing". I picked these up on a whim because it said 24 hours. I am constantly touching or licking my lips so I have no patience for re-applying. I wear liquid lipstick from a competitor at least 6 days a week but was curious to see if a tube lipstick could stand the time test.
The Real Thing does not really live up to the transfer/kiss proof claim, as it transfers quite easily, however through eating and drinking, I only have to re-apply it once maybe twice.
Stay With Me handled better with the transferring.
A big plus for these is that they feel very smooth on the lips, there isn't that weird hard line between the lipstick and the water line of your lips and when you re-apply the lipstick it does not crack or get gross.
I am definitely looking at getting other colors.
Fatz from Colorado
I love the color 275 Coffee Crave, but I did notice that they changed the color depending on the color of the lipstick cover. The black one isn't the same as the gold color cover and I bought a few of the black ones thinking they would be the same and they were not. One has more glitter to it, the other is darker and more solid. That I didn't like.
Not what I thought it would be
La chula from Brooklyn new york
I bought this lipstick hopeing it would last a few hours at least but it didn't but it didn't do the job .so disappointed.
90's color but dosent stay put
Lips21 from NYC
If you are looking for that 90's 90210 color this is it. It just dosent stay put. As soon as you eat or drink it comes off. But the color is amazing!
Lightweight and pretty
ashley432432 from New Jersey
I bought the gemini color and found it to be a pretty, everyday pink I can wear to work. Goes on lightweight. Also the product is sealed pretty well - I had difficulty opening it! But I prefer that because I hate when I go to the store and the lipstick is all messed up from people touching it.
As for long lasting, it does last, but probably not as long as those 24 hour liquid lipsticks that dry on. However, it does come off easy when you need to take off your makeup unlike those 24 hour ones that I try to scrub and still have some on the next day.
Romance Mauve perfect nude
Maude from New Jersey
Although it's not a "nude" this color perfectly enhances the natural color of my lips. Exactly what I have been looking for. Perfect color and does not dry my lips as mattes do. I love it! My new go to color!

These are perfect if youre looking for a satin lipstick at an affordable price. I love the selection of colors but just wish it lasted a little longer when wearing it.
