There are so many new lip products in the drug stores right now. I came across the new Lip Lava from Cover Girl in Walgreens a week ago and had to pick one up!
The color I chose is #850 in Look It's Lava!, which is a bright fuchsia pink with violet shimmer.
Blurry flash shot to pick up the violet sparkle!!
First off the packaging is cute and just a general lip gloss tube. I do love the red cap as opposed to a basic black or silver cap.
It does have a brush tip applicator, which I like. It pulls out more product than a doe foot applicator.
It has a light scent which I can't honestly tell what it is as I'm currently sick with a cold and a sinus infection! Not fun btw!
As you can see the color is gorgeous! It is very opaque. This shade is by no means a sheer gloss. You can wear this on it's own without lipstick because it has full color payoff! The shimmer in this is amazing as well! If you like sparkly glosses you need this!!
The formula is very smooth and hydrating. It's not very sticky.
It's not extremely long lasting. It will last a good three to four hours. If you eat or drink you will get some fading and it will transfer.
This Lip Lava reminds me of MAC's dazzleglass but much more opaque, less sticky, and less expensive.
There are quite a few colors to choose from. If you like nude colors there are some gorgeous lighter shades in this line as well, but you know I like my bright pinks! :)
I definitely am loving this Lip Lava and recommend you check them out! I plan on picking up a couple more shades myself.
You can find them at your nearest drugstore or Ulta for around $6 to $8.
Have you tried Cover Girl's new Lip Lava?
Purchased this myself.
