Review: Cover Girl Queen Collection Lip Color.....

Thursday, January 20, 2011

I finally got the chance to try the new Queen Collection Lip Color and I'm excited! I've been a fan since the very first collection of QC products that came out around 2006, 2007. I remember when their foundation collection fitted an array of women of color shades to be rivaled with. Since then, they have revamped a couple of times and now they have introducted a new lipstick line that I heard great things about. So, let's get started!

I was blessed to recieve four shades: Nude Attitude, Ruby Slipper, Fine Wine, and Powderpuff Pink....
I adore the packaging! Sleek, smooth, quality....
Swatches( gasp!)- Fine Wine, Nude Attitude, Powderpuff Pink, and Ruby Slipper.....
Nude Attitude is a golden nude shimmer. It's more pigmented than I thought it would be. Most colors in this range are sheer on my naturally dark lips. I like this one ALOT. Perfect basic day shade.
Ruby Slipper is a brownish light brick red shimmer. This will definitely be on of my "go to" red shades.
Its so pigmented its stains the lips. Really stains. But the color on is gorgeous.

Powderpuff Pink is flat bright pink. I will compare this to VS Sexy Lip Stick in Beg Me which is discontinued. Its a bright pink that women my shade and darker could wear without having to manipulate the hell of  out it with lip liners and glosses.

Fine Wine is also a flat ( meaning no shimmer) dark berry color. If this was matte, it would be a winner for me. I own dozens of colors like this so it didnt really excite me.

All the CG Queen Collection Lip Colors I recieved are of a satin texture, meaning its not matte but has a bit of sheen, but not glossy.  I'm glad they are not glossy. lol! The only negative is that the darker shades and even the pink I have are stain quite a bit and are tough to get off with just plain cleanser. I would suggest cold cream if you purchase a darker shade.

My Wal- Mart just received these and they were in horrible order. It was almost like someone just threw them in the display!!! Talking about an infuriated beauty addict!!

Have you tried these? If so, let me know the color(s) you purchased and how you like them!!
