Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick - Temptress #400

So I THINK this will be my last lipstick post for the next week or so until I get all moved in and settled in the new place.

Normally I like to wear whatever I review for a full day so I can make sure I can show how the lipstick wears throughout the day. I haven't had the chance to do that this week, and I'll have even less of a chance as the week progresses, then next week I'll be knee deep in unpacking! 

So for next week and possibly the week after I will be post nail polish swatches/reviews Monday-Thursday! 

But this week I have another Covergirl Lip Perfection to share with you!

PS - it's been said that Temptress is a possible dupe for MAC Viva Glam Nicki

(bubblegum blue based bright pink)

**after 4 hours of wear**
Primer -
No primer and a light coat of balm
Coats -
Three to four swipes
Staying Power -
4/10
SO this bright and fun pink had even less staying power than Flame which I reviewed last week - I've read reviews of this lipstick that said it had great staying power so possibly it just depends on the person. I've always loved this color so it won't stop me from wearing it but I just want you to be aware that it could wear off quickly on you like it does me. But who knows it could last for much longer! You'll notice after 4 hours it was almost completely gone and that is without much eating or drinking.
Color Feathering/Bleeding/Build Up/Caking -
You will probably notice that this caked up a good bit but I hadn't used any sugar scrub to help remove any excess dry skin in a little while so there is probably slightly more caking and build up due to that but even still it cakes. SO if you have any issues with dry lips this probably isn't a great lipstick because it seems to show the dryness more so than other lipsticks I've used. Also a primer will help with lessening the build up also.

I should really sugar scrub my lips before reviews but I try to be as "real" as I can be with my reviews and not everyone has the time or desire to scrub the dead skin off their lips! Plus...mine is packed. Whoops.

Do you use any sugar scrub for your lips? Or do you do anything special to keep your lips free of dry skin?
