New Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks

New Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks -1

I have never used any Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipsticks before. I know a few beauty bloggers who have raved about it, so I was super happy when Maybelline sent over some of their new releases and low and behold there was some brand new Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks too.

Maybelline describes these Color Sensational Lipsticks to be a creamy lipstick available in deep reds, pretty pinks, and soft neutrals. Achieve beautiful-looking lips in just moments.New Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks -2


How To Apply:

Step 1: Apply lipstick in the centre of your upper lip and follow the contours of your mouth. 

Step 2: Glide the lipstick across the entire bottom lip.

Maybelline already has an insane amount of shades they release the ones that I got are;


New Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks Swatches

05 Cruel Ruby

10 Nocturnal Rose

15 Smoky Taupe

25 Chilling Grey

30 Concrete Jungle

35 Carnal Brown

45 Smoky Jade


These are all matte formulas, but they are super creamy and feel so comfortable on the lips. It’s known that mattes can be very drying on the lips, but not these… They are pigmented too.

To be honest, Maybelline created the perfect matte lipstick in their Color Sensational range, it wears a long time… I ate with it and it hardly smudges. It’s definitely not a transfer proof lipstick, but it doesn’t transfer as much as other lipsticks at all. It also comes wears evenly so you aren’t left with ugly patches of lipstick coming off your face. I managed to get a good couple of hours wear and only retouched because we went for dinner the evening.

I am super impressed with these Maybelline lipsticks and I can kick myself for not trying them sooner. These lipsticks do retail for around R135, depending on where you buy them. Definitely have a look at Dischem, Clicks stores and Takealot online.

    Wonderful post as usual Candice! Maybelline lippies never really fail for me – they’re affordable, come in a wide shade range and the formula tends to be pretty nice too! I really am gravitating towards the likes of Cruel Ruby and Nocturnal Rose – you can’t beat a dusty pink!
