I was in New York for Fall Fashion Week 2013! So many shows with so little time! I needed to be able to wear lip color that was simple and easy to touch up. I didn’t have time for lip liner and color and gloss, but rather one lip product that was easy-to-use throughout the day. I mean, I’m doing touch ups in the back of the cab. (How NYC of me!) I was able to try out CoverGirl Queen Collection Jumbo Lip Balm in Soaked in Wine, and not only did it save me time, but the double-duty lip balm kept my lips moist and colorful during the cold New York days.

After watching a show about trending colors, I chose CoverGirl Queen Collection Jumbo Lip Balm in Soaked in Wine to create my perfect “pinot pout” for the day.I honestly only wear lip color when I dress up. My normal day to day wear is… wait for it… lip balm!
So, CoverGirl Queen Collection Jumbo Lip Balm is right up my alley with the benefit of both a lip balm and a color. CoverGirl Queen Collection Jumbo Lip Balm in Soaked in Wine is more of a lip tint than a full color, with pretty sheer coverage. CoverGirl Queen Collection Jumbo Lip Balm is described as “sheer color and soft shine” and that is the exact result I had using it. Don’t let the dark color fool you, the coverage is very sheer!
I lined my lips on my initial application, but not for touch ups. I was able to create the perfect “pinot pout” I saw earlier on television with this sheer wine color lip balm. CoverGirl Queen Collection Jumbo Lip Balm is simple to use and has a smooth application. Its balm-like wear kept my lips moisturized in the cold NYFW weather.
I am pleased with the “Soaked in Wine” color—it’s perfect for day or night. The formula of CoverGirl Queen Collection’s Jumbo Lip Balm keeps my lips moist and lightly tinted. I love that it’s packaged like a chunky pencil but holds the product in place nicely.
