When did drugstore packaging get so cute?! Today I’m reviewing the Oh Sugar! lip balms from Covergirl and from first glance, I was in love! The packaging was so sleek and modern, nothing like when drugstore lip products were all just in clear plastic round caps!
There are 10 colors to this line and I’m trying out 2 Candy Bonbon and 6 Punch Cocktail. These lip balms are inflused with grapeseed oil, avocado butter and Vitamins C&E. Not only does it leave a light wash of color, it aims to soften and nourish your lips too! The color selection is quite diverse from a pale nude called Taffy to a dark berry shade called Gumdrop. All of the shades stay quite safe and wearable however in the nude, pink, and berry families.
I really love that the lid of each shade is color coordinated to what is inside. I can just imagine how cute this would be if I had all 10 shades lined up in my vanity! Candy Bonbon is a dusty rose that ends up being a very light wash of color and adds shine to my lips. Punch Cocktail surprisingly has a lot of pigmentation and gives a very nice juicy red look!
There is a light scent to both of these lip balms. It starts off smelling like lemons which I enjoy but then you get a bit of the old school lipstick taste that I don’t enjoy. It feels moisturizing on the lips and definitely leans towards the function of a lip balm although it looks like a lipstick. I love that I can get the shine with no stickiness. You have to reapply pretty frequently but that’s expected from a product of this formula.

The formula, packaging, and shade selection are all on point for the new Covergirl Oh Sugar lip balms! The only thing I didn’t quite like was the smell but I’ll get past that to keep these cute little things in my purse! If you are a fan of lightly tinted lip products, make sure to give these a try!
