We did it! We made it through a week of testing the effectiveness of the Silk Moisturizing Complex in COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor together. I want to give each and every one of you a high-five and a sincere thank you for hanging in there with me for an entire week of lipstick posts from a single brand. I appreciate your support!
So, I have to tell you—just in case you’ve never had the chance to read the original review that I wrote about LipPerfection back in November of 2010, I had my reservations about these moisturizing claims. It’s one of the reasons I took this challenge so seriously, even 6 months later! Here are my own words from that post:
When it comes to the 7 day claim that Lip Perfection will transform the smoothness of your lips, here are my thoughts: I believe that if you change your lip color/lip balm habit for 7 days with any brand—you’re going to see either a welcome or an unwelcome result … So while I’m not discrediting Lip Perfection’s 7-day claim—I’m saying it’s all in how you look at it; is the glass half empty, or half full?
Wow! Looking back on that—I now feel some mixed emotions about what I said, given that I have actually experienced LipPerfection for 7 days straight (back then I hadn’t), without the help of any other lip product. It’s still true that you’re going to see a result one way or another, but this challenge has changed my mind about LipPerfection FOR SURE. Had I tried this experiment with another lipstick, there’s no doubt in my mind that the condition of my lips would have worsened over several days of use without anything else to condition my lips. And that’s what this was all about! COVERGIRL LipPerfection passed! For the final day, I chose Dazzle—a nice light pink with shimmer.
As a treat after the jump, please don’t miss the swatches of all 44 shades in the LipPerfection range below, I did them for you with the hopes they will help you find your own shade to conduct a challenge with for yourself! I hope you enjoyed following me along on this challenge as much as I enjoyed participating in it.

About the challenge:
A few weeks ago, COVERGIRL came to me with a fun idea, and that was to wear NOTHING but the new COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipstick for 7 days. Now for me, I took this as a serious challenge because I’m a lip balm-aholic. Over the next 7 days, I will wear nothing on my lips except for one of LipPerfection’s amazing 44 shades, and chronicle the health of my lips in the process through my lip diary photos. At the end of the week, I’m hoping to see just how well COVERGIRL LipPerfection’s Silk Moisturizing Complex really works. I hope you’ll join me on this journey, and enjoy the little “Lip Tips” I’ve thrown in too!
