The Lipstick Compendium: CoverGirl Lipstick in 330 'Divine'

FACT: My favorite drugstore lipsticks have always been Revlon lipsticks. But this new line of CG lipsticks, called Lip Perfecting Lipsticks, are amazing and I am starting to like them a lot.


Divine is a purple based medium toned pink. It is similar in texture to a MAC Amplified lipstick. In fact, this is very similar to MAC Up the Amp lipstick, but less purple toned and more pink. 


Price and Availability
Depends on where you buy them, but I got mine for $6.99 at Rite Aid. Usually all drugstores carry these.

PROS:
~Easily Available in the US
~Price is fair, compared to MAC and high end brands.
~The packaging is sleek and chic
~Wide range of colors and finishes
~Lipstick is very smooth and creamy
~Doubles as a lip stain, since they are gel based lipsticks they stain the lips
~Can also be used as a blush since they are gel based
CONS:
~This will be, for some people, expensive for a drugstore lipstick
~Some people also won't like the fact that this one stains



Swatches
Divine on its own

Divine with MAC 'Revenge is Sweet' Lipglass on top
Verdict
I love this this lipstick because the color is pretty, it is creamy, and when the color fades, it leaves behind a magenta stain on my lips. This is also easily available and honestly a really great quality lipstick. For $7, it is worth checking out, even for just one color. I am definitely thinking of checking out more colors~ These can be great MAC lipstick dupes and replacements

Rating 8.5/10
Recommend? Yes, I really recommend this shade, and would recommend people who love to buy drugstore beauty products to check out this line of lipsticks.

What do you think of this lipstick?
