There are some new lipsticks in town, ladies, courtesy of the COVERGIRL Queen Collection. Hypoallergenic and infused with a silk protein designed to soften your lips more and more with each wear, they are available in a range of colors specifically suited to women of color. The selection which I test drove included Ruby Slipper, Fine Wine, Spicy Seduction and Girly Pink. Fine Wine was by far my favorite.
It is a richly pigmented shade that goes on smoothly, though it is sadly not thick enough to avoid light re-application many times throughout the day. This particular color faded into a lovely berry-colored stain on my lips which I appreciated, though not as much as I enjoyed the intensity of color when it was freshly applied. Although the packaging on these lipsticks has been given an upgrade, work still needs to be done in the longevity department. -Zee
