I absolutely love lip sticks and I have heard amazing things about the Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks. I never got a chance to try them out until I got one from my Walmart Winter 2014 beauty box. The color that I got was Maple Kiss and it is in The Buffs color selection from this line. They tend to retain for around $7.49 at most drug stores.
Overall, I think that the packaging is pretty cute, nothing too special but it doesn’t seem too cheap.
Here is what the color looks like. It looks like a coppery brown color and I do not think I have any color like this in my collection.
Here is a swatch of the color and I think that this shade is super unique. It is more of a satin finish.
Here is a picture of my lips without any product.
Here is a picture with the product on my lips. The product was pretty pigmented and I generally like how the color looked with my skin tone and it had a satin finish. It went on pretty smoothly (although I did wear lip balm underneath) and I like how it did not “show-off” the dry spots on my lips.
- Pretty affordable since it is a drugstore product (around $7.49)
- Glided on my lips
- Did not dry out my lips
- Lasted a solid five hours
- The line has a large range of colors (they even have lipsticks with matte finishes!)
- Had a bit of a plastic smell
Overall, I would repurchase this product, since I love how it looked on my lips and I love the formula of the product. I cannot wait to try out other colors in this collection.
