Covergirl Fall/Winter lipstick- 'Smoky'

Today I have the first of my two last Covergirl lipsticks for you
that are Fall or remotely winter themed.
Tis one was a dud for me since the color turned out to be
nothing that I would wear,
but what do you guys think?
Would you like this shade?

Here's Covergirl's 'Smoky'.

You can see that 'Smoky' appears to be a chocolate brown color
with gold shimmer.
Sounds yummy, right?!

Once on my lips, however... it just wasn't what I thought it would be.

Now, if this really looked in real life like it does in these pictures,
I wouldn't mind it at all!
In reality though, this brown is significantly darker,
It looked a bit too gothic for my liking.
Plus, in certain light, it looks like I have mud or dirt on my lips.
Not very sexy :c

This is just my personal opinion, though.
Have any others of you tried this color?
What are your thoughts?


  1. i think it looks really nice on you! I'm sorry you don't like it.

  2. This is such a bold lip color! I actually kind of like it!

  3. That sucks. Dark brown is hard to pull off. Maybe with a golden gloss over it? It does look nice in the pictures though

  4. I'd blot it and combine it with a berry or red shade. It can probably be gorgeous with the right combination.
