Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick

I am huge lipstick fan. And while I know most Queens think the cat’s meow are MAC lipsticks….THIS brown queen can’t always drop that kind of money on just ONE tube of lipstick. That’s more of a treat to myself than a staple product. Soooo if you’re like me, and want to  feed your lipstick addiction with a quality lipstick for a reasonable price, Maybelline Color Sensational lines are the affordable way to go. There are 3 lines in the  Color Sensational family which are: Lipcolors, Vivids, and Pearls.

What This Brown Queen Says: The colors are gorgeous. Very pigmented. I have not come across any matte ones, though I’ve researched and there are a few. The lipstick is very creamy. It doesn’t go on dry at all. Very smooth. The lasting power is ok. Some colors stay on longer than others and some colors stain while others don’t. I find that even though the product isn’t drying, that some of them still can leave a flaky residue behind when it fades. Noticeable especially when you go to reapply. I combatted this issue by making sure I always moisturize my lips again before reapplying. Usually takes care of that.  For the price and quality, these lines are my go to lippies from daily wear to more bold looks. See my swatches below:
