Covergirl Gold Star Wars The Force Awakens Lipstick Review

The geek in me is so love with this retired Covergirl Star Wars The Force Awakens Lipstick. I had gotten No. 50 in Dark Purple this summer and now have the No. 40 Gold shade which I like much better.

What’s to love?

My 12-year-old self would have worn this lipstick day and night as I was an extreme Empire Strikes Back fan back in the 80’s. The idea of having a Star Wars branded lipstick would have blow in mind in 1982.

Today I am genuinely thrilled to own this tiny bit of pop culture and I am all over this Gold (C-3PO) shade. It’s a gold/orange shimmer shade that looks surprisingly good for a novelty product. I would serious wear this one. It would also be great for a witch or Star Wars costume for Halloween.

The 6 piece set consists of 3 Dark Side and 3 Light Side shades. Dark Side is Dark Purple, Gold and a Berry Red while the Light Side is Lilac, White and Light Pink. I really want that White shade!

The pigmentation is really good on Gold although it feels a tiny bit grainy which I think is the shimmer.

I got this one on Amazon for $4.99 so they are still out there floating around if you want one.

Covergirl Star Wars The Force Awakens Lipstick

Yes, I know I’m way, way late on this review but I just found the Covergirl Star Wars The Force Awakens Lipstick on Amazon this week and being that I’m a freakishly huge Star Wars fan I had to pick one up.

What’s to love?

Well I wasn’t completely expecting to love No. 50 Dark Purple shade on my lips. I mostly bought this as a Star Wars collectable but now that I’ve got it home I’m kind of in love with it!

Covergirl did an amazing job with both the packaging and the product has a dark side and a light side (I ended up on the dark side).

The lipstick itself looks really dark in the tube and has very little scent. However once you apply the lipstick it looks more purply/mauve. I would actually wear this shade to an evening event in the Winter. You should definitely use a lip liner, as you can see the product has a slight bleed on the edges.

This lipstick is also super creamy (not sticky, at all) and feels awesome on my lips. I had it on for awhile and it had great staying power.

I’d really like to get my hands on the other 5 shades to I’m on the look-out on Amazon.

The girl geek is super excited about owning Star Wars lipstick!
