Cover Girl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm

After getting my hands on a few of the travel sized Clinique Chubby Sticks last year, I was quite impressed and surprised with how much I liked the concept of a jumbo lip balm.  However, paying that amount of a Clinique Chubby Stick was not something I wanted to do, so when more and more drugstore brands released their versions of their "chubby stick" lip balms I decided to pick up a few to give a try.

Out of the different drugstore brands I've tried, I have to say that the Cover Girl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm has to be my favorite dupe for the Clinique Chubby Sticks.

The Cover Girl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balms are exactly what they look like, just a lip balm in stick form.  The concept of a jumbo lip balm in a pencil like packaging is great for anyone looking to touch up their lip color, or add a splash of moisture, on the go.  Twist up the product and glide on the product smoothly.  Infused with Shea and Mango butter, these lip balms are incredibly hydrating and adds that lovely, glossy finish without being tacky.

Now on to the colors...

Rose Twist, Blush Twist, Watermelon Twist, Ruby Twist

These babies are incredibly pigmented for being a balm, and that has to be one of the main reasons why I enjoy them so much.  They add that great pop of your colors to your lips effortlessly and aren't just an expensive chapstick with a subtle color.  With the Shae and Mango butters, these are extremely hydrating and the colors just stand out on your lips (with the exception of the nudes).  With a variety of 16 shades, there's a shade perfect for everyone out there.

But remember, these are lip balms, which aren't meant to be long lasting.  So do expect to reapply after drinks or meals.  But because they're convenient to carry around, it's easy to just slip these in your bag and bring them everywhere with you.
