I recently got my hands on some new goodies from Covergirl and I’m pretty excited about it! Their new Melting Pout Gel Liquid Lipsticks line recently launched a few months ago and included 12 shades, ranging from nudes, to bold reds, to bright purples. These lippies are formulated as a lipgloss/lipstick hybrid and are described by Covergirl as being “high-impact, super rich color with a lightweight, satin finish”. You can pick these up from your local drug store for about $10 CAD. (or about $7.99 USD).
This line of lipsticks was actually launched as part of Covergirl’s 2017 summer collection, but were impossible to find. I don’t know if it’s because I live in Canada and everything just takes longer to be released here or if these were just in super high demand. Either way I’m glad to have them.
These lipsticks come packaged in a squeeze tube, containing 0.27 fl. oz. of product. The packaging is a sleek and soft plastic, similar to the packaging of the Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick by Too Faced. I love that Covergirl took the time to match the colour of the tube to the colour of the lipstick. This is great for when I’m in a rush and don’t have time to guess what lipstick shade the numbers correspond to. The applicator is a slanted sponge, which provides a smooth, easy and controlled application. The one thing I will say about applicators like this is that they have a tendency to become messy after a few uses. I find that the sponge starts to soak up a lot of excess product, which can be great for actual application and user error. However, too much product in the sponge can cause it to start smearing and running down the neck of the tube, causing a real mess!
The lipsticks themselves are fragrance and flavour-free, which is great for those of us that have super sensitive skin or noses. They have a creamy consistency and provide opaque, pigmented colour. These give a glossy, cream type finish without any glitter or shimmer. I picked up three shades, Gel-Ful (105), Evan-Gel-Ical (110), and Don’t Be Gelly (130). All three shades provided amazing pigment and applied smoothly without settling into any lip lines. Since there’s no real dry-down with these lipsticks, I was worried they might move around during they day. I’m happy to report that they stayed put and didn’t slip or feather outside of my lip line. They wore for about 6 hours (so almost a full work day!) and didn’t leave my lips feeling dehydrated or dry. The formula is quite buildable and allows for reapplication without pilling, caking or gooping. I was also quite happy to see that the brighter berry shade I purchased, Don’t Be Gelly (130), provided as much opacity as the nude shades I tried. There were no application issues or patchiness with this shade, which can sometimes be an issue with darker, more berry liquid lipsticks.
Here’s how they look on the lips!

Overall, I’m really enjoying these lipsticks. I think they’re a great drugstore alternative if you’re on a budget (or even if you’re not!). I like that they are comfortable and don’t leave my lips feeling dry or chapped as some liquid lipsticks often do. I’ll definitely be purchasing a few more shades for the Fall and Winter months!
