Review: Limited Edition Maybelline Colorsensational Lollipop Lipsticks

11 Aug

Hello everyone! A limited edition review I haven’t done one of these in a long time as I really don’t like the idea of limited edition.

Product Description: An lollipop color and shades perfect for the summer. I picked up 110 Raspberry Ice and 120 Citrus Slice. Both are basic glossy lipstick with a slight hint of color.

Review: Well as you can tell from the swatches they don’t show up on my hand but there is a bit of a tint when applied to the lips. Strange that it doesn’t work for my hand though. Anyways, the lipstick has a balm like feeling when applying and sometimes it tugs on my lips. It doesn’t dry out my lips but doesn’t make them feel moisturized either. I wasn’t expecting much from the product and it turned out there really is nothing really special about this except for the super bright packaging and the see-throughness of the lipstick. Each of the shades had their own scent which was nice touch. Overall, I would say a nice lipstick for those just looking for a tint or for those who just like quirky lipsticks.

Cost: $8-13CDN @ drugstores and supermarkets for a limited time

Would I recommend this product? I would purchase all the shades as they are a really cool concept with the see-through lipstick but you can get better formulation and pigmentation for the amount of money you are paying. So I would say unless you like these sorts of lipsticks it just isn’t worth purchasing.

Review: Maybelline Colorsensation Lipstick in 625 Are you Red-dy

3 Aug

Hello everyone! OMG it’s a red lipstick!!

Description: A true red leaning a bit orange but overall a true red lipstick.

Review: Every woman should own at least one red lipstick but finding the right red lipstick is hard to do especially considering undertones and whatnot. With Maybelline’s Are you Red-dy the color is a saturated, pigmented red shade. There is bits of underlying orange but this is mainly a red lipstick. The lipstick slides smoothly across the lips and is pretty long lasting. On me it lasted about 5-6 hours including eating and drinking. There is no scent which is good and I really like the packaging of this; the red makes it easier for me to spot and pick up to use. Overall, a great shade for any skintone.

Cost: $5.99-9.99 @ local drugstore/ supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I totally would it is a nice red to own but I probably won’t repurchase because I don’t wear reds that often.
