Another bundle of Maybelline lippies landed through my letter box last week, can’t say I was complaining.
These new Maybelline Colour Sensational lipsticks are great. My main hang up with most lipsticks is that they dry out my already parched lips, and bleed around the edges. These applied smoothly, stayed on the lip and they felt just as moisturising as a lip balm.
- 255 ‘Mauve Diamonds’; a healthy, shimmery berry colour. Perfect for a bitten look to the lips.
- 280 ‘Purple Glam’ (my favourite); a darker, more wearable take on the perfect Barbie pink.
- 143 ‘Pink Fizz’; an on trend coral pink. Perfect for the spring/summer colour blocking trend.
All leave a glossy finish and last well on the lips. I had to reapply after eating and drinking, but otherwise they tend to last quite well. Perhaps just a top up to intensify the colour every few hours works fine.
However, if you’re not a lipstick fan (I know I’ve been there) the Colour Sensational lip glosses might be a little better. They taste amazing!
I received 410 ‘Peach Sorbet’ and 760 ‘Cocoa Fever’. Both of these are sooo tasty! The challenge is keeping it on my lips and resisting the urge to lick it off. The Cocoa Fever adds a sheer hit of colour to subdue any bright lips or intensify any dark ones, while Peach Sorbet simply adds a luxurious sheen that isn’t sticky.
Right now my current favourite combination is Purple Glam lipstick with Cocoa Fever over the top. Adds even more gloss and of course, an even better taste.
All Maybelline Colour Sensational products will be available nationwide in Superdrug stores.
