Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Fairytale Review & Swatches

Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Fairytale is described as a pink to rose colour. The Lip Perfection Lipstick line is said to be “Enriched with Silk Moisturizing Complex, our formula helps sustain levels of moisture and helps create soft, smoother, beautiful lips in just 7 days.”

The packaging is sleek, with a metallic cap and a coloured end showing the shade, and I really appreciate how the colour actually matches the shade. ┬áThe pigmentation is excellent, one swipe on the lips yields opaque coverage. The formula also feels great on the lips, it glides on easily, no tug-o-war with the lips is needed.

It also lasts a very long time on the lips, at least 8 hours for me, which is exceptional, since most lipsticks lasts only 3-5 hours on me (including MAC ones). I had breakfast after I put on the lipstick, and after breakfast it still looks like I just put it on (and I had a big breakfast at Cora!)
