Maybelline has got another hit on it's hands! This time it's their newest version in the Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick line.
The High Shine version is a fantastic formula that combines the color payoff of a traditional lipstick with a light luster finish (not quite the shine you would get from a gloss however).
Some of my favorite shades were Glisten Up which is a medium pink with violet and Fruit Punch (shown above), a face-brightening strawberry pink with a touch of coral . The colors are somewhat sheer, but many of the deeper ones still show up even on pigmented lips.
They also provided fantastic moisture during the day. The formula was smooth going on and very lightweight. I was also able to layer the lipstick for a deeper color, or just apply one light layer for more of a natural, stain effect. The lasting power was great for a sheerer lipstick and the scent is such a fun one! (think Flintstones Vitamins - kind of an orange-sweet blend).
The packaging is also nice - a pretty shiny silver case which clicks closed, and stands out from a lot of the brands in drugstores right now. Some of the shades have subtle shimmer and the range also has some deeper shades as well.
Pick up a few of these ASAP my dears! - RLB
