Review: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick

FINALLY i have internet. What happened was that outside, the internet box on the wooden post thingie broke. We had a storm and a tree branch fell. Well, with new internet, comes a new blog layout. Yes, the picture of the little girl is me. I didn't just type in "asian baby" in google images and stole a picture. But anyway, here is a new review for you to feast upon. 

BTW, thank you Red for telling me how to take a picture of my lips without getting the fish-eye effect!

Product Details

Why You'll Love It

Fall in love with color, all over again:
 • Crisper color from pure pigments
 • Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar
 • Lipcolor so rich, so stunning…it’s sensational
 • 48 captivating shades 

What I say:

Woop Woop, lets get to the nitty gritty. 

Swatch: A pinky nude. Basically, MLBB (my lips but better). Was I hoping for this? No. I was hoping for a more concealer color. I think that I'm going to have to go to MAC for this. 

 Just in case you didn't know, I put it on my bottom lip. It's quite nice. I wanted a beige color. Suggestions? I'm going to have to hit up a MAC store or Sephora sometime soon. 

Texture/Smell: For the record, I freaking hate glittery lipsticks. This is not the same for glitter in eyeshadow. I like my lips for be satin or matte finish. I don't like the real "glossy/glitter/I work at a Las Vegas showgirl" look. I think that my lips are kinda huge for an asian person and I don't like to emphasize it. That being said, I think that this is a little glossy for me. It is "moisturizing" as stated in the claims. Err, I don't know if there's "honey nectar" but I'll go with it. If you pat off the oily/glossyness of it with a tissue, it's quite nice. 

It goes on smoothly and doesn't emphasize my lip lines. Excellent. 

The smell= vanilla+ chemicals= nasty. I hate it when my makeup smells like something. I would prefer a very neutral smell. Like air. 

Wearability: It comes off easily with food. When it wears off, it kinda clings to flakes on your lips, so you can peel it off. It's gross actually. 

Price: Dumb CVS made it 10.49. Absolutely not worth that. I bought it with a 5$ ECB and a 2$ off coupon. 

Recommended: Yes. It is expensive, but with the right coupons, it can be whittled down to size. It's an excellent drugstore lipstick and I like it.
