Well I thought I bought them ALL when I saw these four COVERGIRL Oh Sugar! Lip Balms ($6.99 // Target). Then I went to the COVERGIRL website and there are TEN listed! All are listed on the Target website, so basically it’s my fault for being blinded by a product I was dying to try out and not looking past the small display setup. Lesson learned, because I definitely need all of these!
The COVERGIRL Oh Sugar! Vitamin Infused Lip Balms (as they’re formally called) are touted as being a “vitamin infused, moisturizing lip treatment that nourishes, protects and smooths lips. Grapeseed oil, avocado butter and vitamins C and E lock in moisture, keeping lips soft and smooth.”
Like I said ten shades are available and I picked up four of them in 1 Cupcake, 2 Candy, 3 Caramel and 4 Taffy. I found them all to be incredibly moisturizing – they actually feel silky as you apply and wear them. If you’re not doing the eating and drinking thing they do last for around 3 hours, but if you drink a lot or eat anything you’ll have to reapply.
Cupcake was almost 100% sheer on my lips. This is a great “apply-on-the-go” lip product because it is so sheer it’s easy to apply without involving a mirror.
Candy is a sheer lollipop shade with enough tint to make it look like you had a red lollipop or Popsicle recently. My favorite shade to pop on for an easy makeup day or to glam up a smoky eye when I don’t want something “too neutral”.
Caramel is a sheer apricot that seems to add a chic-ness to any makeup look.
Taffy is a sheer mauve. I feel like I’m dressed up even when I’m not when I have this shade on. It’s the most pigmented of the four shown.
Below the COVERGIRL Oh Sugar! Lip Balms are swatched on bare skin. I did make a couple of passes to get the best color possible out of them (which I do on my lips anyway). Like I said these are sheer but (other than Cupcake on me) they do offer a tint. If your lips are heavily pigmented you likely won’t notice it as much. My lip pigment is a light pink so the tint shows up nicely after a few passes.
What shades of COVERGIRL Oh Sugar! Lip Balm are you going to be picking up?
