Hey guys! Happy Friday! Ready for the weekend?
Today’s post is going to be a review and swatches of the limited edition Star Wars Coloricious Lipsticks by CoverGirl. So grab yourself a blue milk and your lightsaber and let’s going!
Now I don’t know about you, but I am a HUGE Star Wars fan. I’ve loved the movies since I was a kid. I had Star Wars action figures I played with more than dolls. Not a fan of the prequels (outside of Ewan McGregor… but I’d pay $20 to watch him tie his shoes, so that says it all right there. LOL!), but I am so excited for the new movies.
Anyhow, to celebrate the upcoming new Star Wars film, The Force Awakens, CoverGirl came out with a limited edition collection of lipsticks, mascaras and nail polish. I managed to score a couple of the lipsticks from the collection. I admit I mainly wanted them for the packaging as GoverGirl products and I have never really gotten along over the years.
Out of the 6 lipsticks available, I got shade 30 – Red and shade 70 – Nude. The other colors in the collection are Silver, Gold, Lilac & Dark Plum.
These lipsticks are infused with shea butter, so they’re supposed to be moisturizing. They also claim to have long lasting color.
Let’s start with shade 30 – Red. This is a really pretty red shade. It’s also unique as it’s got quite a bit of shimmer and you might even say a bit of micro glitter in it. But that makes sense since this is a lipstick with an outer space theme. Not a shade I would wear everyday, but a fun color for special occasions and the like (and especially with Halloween coming up next weekend).
Shade 70 – Nude, is a little more wearable. It’s a pretty peachy nude color. It also has a lot of shimmer in it like the red shade. You could wear this on its own or use it as a topper over another lipstick to glam things up a bit.
Both of these lipsticks have good pigmentation and apply nicely. They feel moisturizing on the lips thanks to the shea butter. I’m not sure how good wear time is though as I’ve only applied them to my lips a couple times just to see how they look on. I’m guessing you’d get average wear time out of these (a few hours if not eating or drinking).
You want swatches? We got swatches!
These lipsticks are hard to track down. I got the nude shade online through Ulta and I happened to find the red shade at the Walgreens near my apartment complex. I looked on Ulta’s site and they’re not available on there anymore, but I did find them on drugstore.com (all but the nude shade are in stock) and Target’s site has most of the shades in stock as well. Walmart’s site says they’re only carrying these in their stores, so you might want to check out your local ones. They retail for $5.94 to $8.49 depending on where you purchase from.
Ok that should do it for today! Have you been able to score any of these limited edition lipsticks? If you have, what do you think of them? Sound off below in the comments.
As always, thank you all so much for reading! I hope you all have a fun-filled weekend and I’ll see you again Monday with a new post. And may the Force be with you! 🙂
