Covergirl Lip Perfection Queen Collection in South Beach Sand

There are times when disappointments turn into not-so-bad news. That’s how I would describe one of the lipsticks I purchased without swatching it. I am talking about Covergirl’s Lip Perfection Lipstick Queen Collection in South Beach Sand.
I purchased this awhile back and since I bought it from a bazaar, there were no testers and no swatches available. I just looked at the tube and decided that I liked the shade a lot so I bought it.

When I finally tried it on, that’s when I realized it wasn’t that opaque and that it has a lot of shimmers. To be honest, I was taken aback. I initially thought of buying this because I wanted a somewhat peachy nudish shade for everyday. But obviously, this isn’t it as it was really shimmery.

Here is a swatch:

What I LIKE:

  • Pigmented
  • Loving the gold sheen
  • Perfect with matte eyeshadows or matte face makeup
  • I don’t think I’ll be able to pull this off on a normal day
  • This lipstick + Shimmery makeup will totally clash and be an overkill!
  • Not as long lasting as my matte Lip Perfection lipstick
Even though I didn’t like it at first, I eventually learned to love it. It’s just important to pair it with the perfect makeup. I would usually wear this with matte eye makeup just to give my look a little surprise.
Tip: If you really want to tone down the shimmer, use a lip liner. I find that it helps doing so. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And so, I am now happy with this purchase! Good thing I have it in my stash since I don’t really own any shimmery lipsticks aside from this. By the way, I got mine from Chedelyn’s Cosmetics for P300.
What do you guys think? Can you pull off a shimmery lipstick? Now I know I can. ๐Ÿ™‚
