31 Days of Reviews, Day 25: Covergirl Melting Pout Gel Liquid Lipstick

quick take.jpg

Hello everyone! Well yesterday came and went, and still no package (you will know what I am referring to if you read yesterday’s post). Therefore, I am going to go ahead and review a different liquid lipstick today, and will revisit the liquid lipstick that I am waiting to receive in the future.

The liquid lipstick that I am going to review today is the Covergirl Melting Pout Gel Liquid Lipstick in the shade 105 Gel-Ful. I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes in the Covergirl Vitalist Voxbox. If you are interested in hearing all about my Voxbox experience and an overall review of both items within this box, stay tuned because I will be posting about that soon. Please know that even though I received this item for free, my opinions expressed here are 100% my own. Neither Influenster nor Covergirl have solicited me to say anything specific. So without further ado, let’s go ahead with the review of the lipstick!

Packaging and First Impressions

The packaging of these liquid lipsticks is very cute and functional. The shade of the packaging matches each of the lipstick colours offered in this line. The outer packaging is very reminiscent of the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick (the one pictured below is smaller because it is a sample size).

The packaging between the Covergirl Melted Pout and the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick is very similar, as seen in the picture. While the packaging between the NARS Velvet Lip Glide and the Covergirl Melted Pout is not similar, the formula and colour is very close to identical.

These Covergirl lipsticks come in a squeezy tube that has an oval sponge-tip applicator. To dispense product, you simply squeeze the tube and the lipstick will come out of tiny holes dispersed throughout the sponge tip. I like the shape of the sponge tip. Because it is oval in shape it makes it really easy to apply the product accurately and in a uniform layer, especially to your cupid’s bow. This sponge tip is also similar to what you see on the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick, except that the sponge tip on the Covergirl Melted Pout is a bit smaller.

The packaging between the Covergirl Melted Pout and the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick is very similar, with a very close to identical sponge tip applicator. However, they are not similar in formula, as the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks dry down to a matte finish.

The Covergirl Melted Pout is on the left whereas the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick is on the right. You can see that the Covergirl Melted Pout has a slightly smaller applicator which makes it easier to apply the lipstick accurately.

This is the type of liquid lipstick that does not dry down (it may set down a tiny bit). It is a comfortable gel, almost a gloss when first applied. These lipsticks come in 12 shades, ranging from nudes to berry tones. I did not notice any particular scent to the product.

Price and Quantity

These liquid lipsticks are priced differently at different retailers, and those prices are displayed on the Covergirl website. This is incredibly handy for customers!

Clearly, you should be buying this product on either Amazon, or at Target. However, there isn’t a huge price difference across all of the retailers. I would say that the price of this lip product is pretty comparable to other liquid lipsticks at the drugstore, and it is obviously much more affordable than the liquid lipsticks available in high end retailers like Sephora.

This Covergirl Melted Pout Gel Liquid Lipstick comes with 8 mL or 0.27 oz of product. This is less than you get in the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick (12 mL or 0.4 oz), but more than you get in the NARS Velvet Lip Glides (5.7 mL or 0.2 oz), which I talk about later in the review. Additionally, the amount of product that you get in this Covergirl lipstick is more than you get in the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipsticks (6.3 mL or 0.21 oz), or the Maybelline Superstay Matte Inks (5 mL or 0.17 oz), both of which have become popular liquid lipsticks recently.

Claims

Here are the claims from the Covergirl website:

“If you want color so hot, it’s melted, this is the lipstick for you! New Melting Pout Liquid Lipsticks give you a high-impact, super rich color with a lightweight, satin finish. Melting Pout lipsticks give you Intensely rich color in a gel-based formula for a smooth finish.”

Pigmentation and Performance

This is the type of liquid lipstick that does not dry down. It is a comfortable gel, almost a gloss, that will eventually set down to a satin finish. It has pretty good pigmentation upon application and can be built up for full coverage. I received the shade 105 Gel-Ful, which is a really nice lighter pinky coral colour. This is definitely a great colour for the summer! The texture is very light and non-sticky. It also doesn’t feel like it will migrate out of your lip line.

This lip product was moderately hydrating, however I do have chronically dry lips, so they did get a little dried out from not wearing something more nourishing. Because this product is similar to a lip gloss, it wasn’t all that long lasting. I reapplied every 2-3 hours, especially when eating and drinking. However, a good amount of pigment remains even though it isn’t transfer proof.

I would say that this liquid lipstick is a good dupe of the NARS Velvet Lip Glide in the shade Playpen. It has a similar texture and light-weight feeling and the colour is almost a perfect match. I would say that Playpen is just a bit brighter than Gel-Ful. Additionally, the Covergirl Melted Pout might actually have better pigmentation. The best thing is that this lip product is WAY more affordable than the NARS counterpart ($5.99 for the Covergirl Melting Pout on Amazon compared to $34 for the NARS Velvet Lip Glide at Sephora). Get it girl!

Final Thoughts

Overall, this lip product is great for an affordable lipstick. I enjoy more glossy lips in the summer, so I think this is a great product for this time of the year. I am seriously considering purchasing other colours from this line.

Have you tried any of these lippies? What do you think?

  1. I got this Vox Box also! I was pleasantly surprised by the Melting Pout! I liked the formula a lot and pretty much had the same experience and thoughts as you on it. I’m really happy with the colour they sent too because it’s so pretty and flattering!
