Every other week there is a Makeup Wars post. But never in all of the time I’ve been doing them has it been so incredibly easy to pick the item I want to feature. Usually I cheat and add in a few different things. After all… who could sit there, with all of the awesome products at the drugstore lately, and pick JUST ONE drugstore lip product and deem it the best? Because of the new COVERGIRL Oh Sugar! Lip Balms ($6.99 // Target) I sure can.
I said in my previous post that featured four of the Oh Sugar! shades that I’d be picking up the other six. A sponsored opportunity popped up with COVERGIRL for social media and we were given a $25 budget to buy a few things. You can tell from my Instagram post that I was a little excited for all of the newness… and well exceeded that budget given to me and paid out of pocket for the rest. What else is new?! (PS – the social media was something I was paid for, but there was no contract or payment for any blog posts for the campaign).
Why are the the COVERGIRL Oh Sugar! Lip Balms best of the best? The moisture of them feels amazing on the lips, especially in the winter. They apply so easily because of the smooth slip of the formula and the tints are just enough. The pigment is mostly to semi-sheer on these but if you coat your lips in a liner first you will get a lip that looks like you’re wearing the glossiest of all lipsticks.
The six shades I picked up on this second run are 5 Spice, 6 Punch, 7 Soda, 8 Sprinkle, 9 Jelly and 10 Gumdrop. Check out swatches of 1 Cupcake, 2 Candy, 3 Caramel and 4 Taffy here.
