These make my lips soft and have a good pigmentation.
I have this lipstick in two shades. I find the price right and the shade selection phenomenal... but that is all. The formula is subpar. Its wearable but definitely not the most comfortable. One shade I have in Born With It has shimmer. As the lipstick wears, I find it leaves behind chunky pieces of shimmer and glitter. The other shade I have is Shocking Coral which is a lovely shade and a cream finish. It is highly pigmented but still not comfortable on the lips.
Just not my favorite formula. I much prefer my Revlon Lip Butters and Rimmel Lipsticks at the drugstore level.
I have #625 Are You Red-dy. It's a great color, I feel like it makes my teeth appear whiter. But it's so difficult to apply. I don't have full lips, and so the lipstick kinda goes over my natural lip line and it's a pain to try to fix. also, it dries out my lips.
I had bought my first Maybelline Colour Sensational in Pink Wink..it is a berry pink with an irradescense to it. It went on like butter and didn't leave any residue. It was fairly moisturizing and had pretty good staying power. So I thought I should buy another so I bought Warm Me Up. I didn't even know that it was one of the most popular colours and still picked it out, leaving me with satisfaction. It is a beautiful beigey nude with a hint if pink. It is like a "your lips but better" while Pink Wink is a toned down berry red pinky colour. I love these lipsticks better than my MAC ones and that says a lot!!
I recently brought the color sensational in the color "party pink" and I love it. It's not drying, the color applies very smoothly, it's opaque but can be toned down with a lighter gloss. It's a great lip color for everyone in my opinion. I haven't yet tried any of the other colors but I'm exited to.
I have their BoldMatte lipstick in Mat 6, semi matte finish tho. But the shade is perfect, red warm undertone for my skin tone (tan) ! This is totally my pin up lipstick, doesnt last that long..
I have this lipstick in the color 645 Red Rival. I love it! It's a beautiful darker red with no orangey tints. It's so creamy, and the color looks great with my skin tone. The only reason why I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 was because it definitely didn't last as long as I wanted it to.
The Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks are just that...sensational. For the price point alone, the colours can't be beat. The vivids in general are as pigmented as any other high end lipstick and they definitely compare well for the unique colour choices. As far as longevity, they last an average of 4-5 hours without eating a major meal and 1-3 hours if I have had a significant meal. I have purchased the recent limited edition colour Lavendar Voltage and it is very comparable to MAC's infamous Heroine. The one exception is the finish which is more Satin compared to Heroine's matte formula. There is a slight vanilla/playdoh scent but not very powerful. No significant taste is discernible and the wear was comfortable and moisturizing. After being strictly a "department store" brand girl, I'd have to say that Maybelline has turned my eyes back to the drugstore for makeup finds...and my pocket is grateful.
These are fantastic lipsticks! I have 630 Red Revolution and it is a really great pink-y red for my fair cool-toned skin. You do have to put on a couple layers to get the "tube" color as it applies like a dark pink the first layer. It wears off pink, as well. I also have 645 Red Revolution which is really the perfect true red (blue-based, it wears off as a darker pink). I love red lips, can you tell?
This lipstick stays wonderfully, wearing off evenly. The smell is a soft vanilla-y lipsticky smell which I don't mind; it is actually much better than some lipsticks! When I'm looking for a new lipstick color I will most definitely look in this line. The price of these lipsticks is great, at about $5-6 at Walmart or Target. I highly recommend!
Update: I recently bought 420 Deepest Cherry and I love it! It's an oxblood color, a perfect hue for those fall/winter lips that are so trendy right now.
I really really really love these lipsticks I just wish there were more wearable colours in the UK. It's so light and smooth, not drying, feels like you have nothing on. I'm tired of MAC lipsticks which feel like I have paint on my lips. These actually stay on better and feel so light. I have summer pink, a medium cool toned pink.
