Oh man, this was a disappointment. I saw this at the drugstore and thought, hmm I found it! The "holiday berry" color, unique and cool toned, not the usual Christmas red. I'm gunna be sultry and classy at the same time with this baby...
But it was not meant to be. SO gorgeous in the tube... SO dark on my lips... it applies significantly darker than it appears :/ Very decent product, as maybelline lipsticks go. Good staying power. But sad about the color. Just too dark to be the vibrant berry I was hoping. Made my eyes look black (which has become a big indicator in whether I like a color of a product or not - it needs to be flattering to what I already got going on!).
I love this color. I usually go for light pinks when it comes to lipstick, but I was drawn to this beautiful color. It's perfect for the fall and I think it looks pretty against my fair skin. :)
great product, great pigmentation i just dont like the metallic sheen it gives off
Magentaaah! A very classy shock of creamy magenta that makes my face come alive. It's intense but you can apply it over balm to sheer it out or apply it on dry lips with your finger for a stain. An hg for me and I will definitely repurchase.
Great color, great texture.
Love the color...its a bright, but not neon, fuschia. Really brings green eyes out. The only thing is these lipsticks tend to go rancid pretty fast within several months. Moisturizing and good pigmentation and color stay. They really have a great selection of colors in this line, I'm pretty impressed.
Another beautiful pink other than Hooked on Pink that brightens my NC43 skin. This is a more lighter and hotter pink than hooked on pink. Excellent pigmentation. Does not dry the lips.
I loved the color, a soft fuschia, very wearable. The texture was nice, creamy. And, the packaging is sleek and pretty. However, the scent on mine was crayons from the beginning, and it had a slight weird chemical taste. It also turned on me within months. I'm not the type of person who wears the same lip color everyday, so I cannot have a product turn on me within months. Will never repurchase any of the Color Sensational lipsticks because of the turn factor. I'll stick with Revlon for drugstore lipsticks.
This lipstick is not a true pink, it's somewhat of a violet mauve plum... very brightening to my skintone. It instantly wakes up my face and works with my tone, not against it. I had a $2 off coupon, and the price has recently gone up on all make-up. On camera this looks purple, but it's not in real life. I don't think I'd love to take pics with it on... I love the shade range and pigment of these, but they tend to go rancid after only a few months. I even bought the last tube of Born With It one time, and it was bad when I got it home! A brand new tube that was already rancid... something in the ingredients has to be the cause. When it does go bad, it smells like a very strong clay chemical scent. Every tube of this lipstick I've had has done that eventually. :( So I suggest you use these up and don't keep them in a drawer.
I like that you can see these colors before you buy.......that is important, especially if you're like me and you don't want any frost or shimmer. Party Pink is a fantastic color for going out, it makes me think of some Clinique color from yesterday that I loved.........Tender something???? I really dig the new formula Maybelline has come up with as well. It's almost gel-like in consistency. Will pick up more of these.
