If you haven't noticed, we're a little obsessed with finding lipsticks that last all day. So when Covergirl sent us a box of their latest products - called the Lip Perfection series - we were less interested in their claim that you could get a moisturized and "healthy" pout, and more fascinated with their time line. Can you wear this new collection and still live your life?
To test the range, which includes eight lip pencils and 44 lipstick shades, we grabbed our interns Bertie and Julie, and sent them on an ice cream field trip.
The results were really good (and not just because they love Soft Serve). After one application of the lip liner (which has a slightly gummy, sticky texture) and one swipe of lipstick (a slightly sheer but very bright pink), Bertie's lips were the exact same color as when she started.
We included before, during, and after photos to prove it - and just in case you want to copy her, Bertie's wearing the lip pencil shade "Radiant" under the lipstick color "Dazzle." (Don't panic - the results are less Barbie Dreamhouse than their names.)
