Product Review and Swatches: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick

Saturday, January 28, 2012

*Warning: picture heavy post!!*

Here are swatches of the Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick range that I received recently. The colours I received were:

109 Rosy Dream; 140 Juicy Bubblegum; 161 Juicy Pink; 255 Mauve Diamonds; 330 Sugar Plum; 445 Mango Diamonds; 550 Cherry Candy; 602 Beige Rose

715 Ice Tea; 760 Luminous Cocoa; 240 Barely Brown; 295 Bronzed; 300 Warm Latte; 310 Mochachino

I like to see full-face shots when I look for lipstick swatches online, so at the risk of annoying everyone for taking up all your bandwidth, here are the full-face shots.

109, 140

161, 255

330, 445

550, 602

715, 760

240, 295

300, 310

These lipsticks are quite sheer and easy to apply. They last about 1 1/2 hours or so, normal wear time for a lipstick.

My favourite colours are:

140 Juicy Bubblegum - a gorgeous Barbie-pink colour that, true to its name, looks as juicy as ever
255 Mauve Diamonds - a very natural looking colour, and I personally love mauve in makeup products!
550 Cherry Candy - this fiery red colour is brilliant! My favourite colour out of the entire collection!
310 Mochachino - this is my stepping stone towards wearing darker colours. This is the easier version of Tom Ford's Black Orchid (without the purple undertone). Because this colour is also quite sheer, it is more easy to apply and is a lot more forgiving if you happen to make any mistakes.

Have any of you tried these? What are your favourite colours?
