Review: Covergirl Oh Sugar! Lip Balm

image

I was so excited to hear that Covergirl was coming out with an affordable answer to fresh’s Sugar lip balm line. Those run you at least $22 a pop, while Oh Sugar! runs you about $8.99 at most. Remember there are also coupons and BOGO options for this as well.

I got my hands on them at Walgreens and Bed, Bath & Beyond for $8.99. I bought Candy, a subtle pink, and Caramel, a nudey pink.

Clearly these are sheer since they are tinted lip balms. I have to say I was disappointed. I suffer from chronic chapped lips no matter the weather, and this stuff was just not moisturizing enough. It had a strong citrus smell, which I actually loved though. But over all, I really only plan on wearing these when I’m going for a subtle, glossy lip.

They did go on smooth, but the color pay off could only be seen after a few swipes.
