New Cover Girl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm – Swatches & First Impression

I’ve been a mad woman on the hunt ever since I first heard the buzz that Cover Girl was coming out with a new product – the Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm.
 
 
The day before Thanksgiving, I spotted the new Cover Girl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm at Wal-Mart for $6.94 each.
 
If you’re searching for these new Jumbo Gloss Balms make sure to thoroughly check the entire cosmetic department. As a heads up – they were in an odd location – not quite on an end cap, but not in the Cover Girl aisle either. At my Wal-Mart the new Cover Girl Jumbo Gloss Balms had their own display on the corner of the aisle.
 
Today is the first day I’ve had a chance to crack open these new Jumbo Gloss Balms – so I’ll only be sharing my first impressions in this post. If you would like a more detailed review of this product, please leave me a comment below.
 
The new Cover Girl Jumbo Gloss Balms go on somewhat sheer and leave a slight shine on the lips. They feel rather moisturizing right after application but wear off quickly. The display claims “petal soft lips” and “sheer color, soft shine, soft feel” – statements I can agree with.
 
 
One thing I didn’t like right away is the packaging – the shade name is only on the plastic wrapper. When you take off the plastic wrapper the only reference to the shade is a number on the bottom of the tube. I enjoy relating a name, not a number, to each color.
 
 
 
 
The color selection is ah-mazing with shades of nudes, corals, reds, pinks, and berries – something for everyone. At my Wal-Mart there were 15 shades available:

205 ballet twist
210 blush twist
215 watermelon twist
220 haute pink twist
225 rose twist
230 berry twist
235 coral twist
240 apricot twist
245 ruby twist
250 scarlet twist
255 jam twist
260 plum twist
265 mocha twist
270 cocoa twist
275 mauve twist
