Review - Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick

Over the past several months I have picked up several, no, many of the new ColorSensational lipsticks by Maybelline. I can't walk into a Walgreen's, CVS, Or Wal-Mart without hitting the cosmetics section (insert lecture from husband here) and have often seen these on BOGO. I think I have 10 of these now! I am by no means a makeup snob, there are alot of drugstore items that I love, but I have not had good experiences with drugstore lippy's. What I want in a lipstick is staying power without drying, no feathering, I want it to look the same on my lips as it does in the tube, and all for a price that doesn't break the bank! Is that too much to ask? LOL! Well, these lippy's are pretty close to perfect for me. There are so many colors to chose from, reds, pinks, plums, & neutrals. The staying power on these is great and they do not dry my lips out at all! I even found a red I can pull off on my fair skin, Red Revival. Out of the 10 or so that I have, I have 4 that are my faves and I find myself reaching for them alot more than any of my high-end lipsticks.

Nearly There - This is a pinky-beige and is great when your going for a nude lip. It is a little frosty but still opaque enough for the popular nude lip look.

Born With It - This is a frosty light pink, great subtle lip when your doing a smokey eye.

Plaza Pink - Your basic candy pink, a great everyday color.

Blushing Brunette - I am loving this one for fall! It is a warmer brownish pink, great with my coloring. This one is probably my most favorite.

Overall these lipsticks are awesome and a great value!

Swatches (I am not the greatest picture taker!) In order: Red Revival, Blushing Brunette, Born With it, Nearly There, Plaza Pink.

  1. Hey Ya,

    I love these lipsticks also...... I mean they are no MAC Lipglass, but they are magic in a tube.

    I am as you may or may not know, medium skin, currently dark dark brown hair and usually emphasize my eyes, Nearly there and Born with it are just what I need.


    And that is all.....

    Love Love,
