I know. I can’t stop talking about ‘em. Yah. I am that obsessed with Maybelline’s Color Sensational lipsticks. These things are magnificent, y’all. And so unexpected! I mean, who knew that a drugstore brand would be launching such beautiful and BRIGHT lipsticks? This never happens. We usually have to head to department stores to see brilliance. Maybelline is givin’ us face this season.
…and I am soooo here for it. I’ve been braggin’ about the awesomeness of these thangs for quite some time so please allow me to show them off via pics. You cool with that?
Formula-wise, they are like traditional lipsticks in that they may be a bit drying so wearing a lip balm underneath them is a must. Wear time is dependent on what you got goin’ on. A ton of eating and drinking may result in your lipstick fading a bit but I think that’s to be expected. I find that I get the best wear time out of these when I blot with a tissue after applying. Some have a bit of a stain-effect so even if I’m drinking on somethin’, the color will stick around a bit longer.
And now the beauties –
Brazenberry is a cool medium berry. It’s such an interesting shade of purple. I found it worked best when I wore it with a plum lipliner.
Electric Orange is a straight up ORANGE lipstick. It definitely isn’t for the faint of heart. I was surprised at how I can wear this without a liner or anything. ‘Scuse my flaky lippies on this one.
Hot Plum is a vivid magenta and I found it to be extremely wearable.
Neon Red is an orange-y red and it is briiiiight. It has quite a bit of orange for me but I can still rock it confidently. This is THE lippy color of the season.
On Fire Red is a great blue toned red lipstick. If Neon Red isn’t exactly up your alley, On Fire Red is it.
Pink Pop is a frosty bubblegum pink.
Vivid Rose is my absolute favorite of the bunch. It’s a punchy hot pink that is officially my color of the season.
Of course you can grab all of these at Target. That is, if you can find them. It was hard tracking these babies down because they are super popular. Simply put – these rocks. Especially if you’re the type to be a bit adventurous in the lipstick department.
Which one are you lovin’ the most?
It’s Time for Springtime.
