I bought this on a whim, it was on sale and I really liked the color.
Now, its one of my favorite lipsticks, the color is just spot on trend and I feel like you get the longevity out of it for what you pay (fully priced)
I noticed it in a couple of my friends lipstick collections as well and we all love it.
It goes on creamy, and if your lips aren't in top shape it doesn't show flakes or dryness. The smell is really pleasant as well. Cannot fault this in any way.
WIll buy again, and in other shades too!
I had a hard job to find this and when I did there was one left.
I bought the Fuschia and loved it so much I wanted the coral too.
It is a watermelon colour.
I wear mine blotted and applied with a lip brush to help it last.
The labelling of the color "coral" is a bit misleading because I feel this lipstick leans far closer to pink that it does the orange-y hues of coral. Luckily my skintone seems to agree with the color, and I'm sure I have several outfits that would go with this color (I only purchased it a few days ago.)
For a drugstore brand, this lipstick is quite rich and doesn't take too much time to get all-over coverage on my lips (I can only speak for this particular color.) I went to brush my teeth with the lipstick on, and after I finished the vast majority of it was still in place... not bad!
Hardly coral... more of a sweet pink
Difficult color for many skintones
If I could I would rate it 3.5... I like to think of this shade as a proto-Vivid. It's a bold glossy color, as are the Vivids, yet it is sheerer and not as long lasting. In fact, it's the sheerest of all my orange/coral lipsticks (that aren't lip balms). This isn't a bad thing in my opinion, since orange is a harder color to wear and all of mine are really pigmented. This is the lipstick I pull out when I want a sort of translucent but still really noticeable orange-y shade. Like other people have said, this is not the pure orange color it looks like in the tube, on the lips it becomes more of a pink-y watermelon coral. I find this shade to be a bit waxier in texture than the other Color Sensationals I've tried. If you have chapped lips, this will emphasize them. I like applying this on top of a clear lip balm, to get that sheer jelly-like color, but you could easily build it up (it will never be as opaque as the Vivids, fyi). Maybelline lipsticks have always smelled a bit like playdough to me, which I don't mind because I like the smell but others won't. The packaging is okay, not really my style, but I hate that it doesn't come sealed in store! I actually bought this because it was said to be a MAC Toxic Tale dupe, if that matters at all. Would probably repurchase, if I ever run out.
I'm amazed with this lippie! This wasn´t my first option at the drugstore, it seamed too bright, almost clownish, but when I saw the color in the tube I thought it was a really pretty color and I wanted to give it a try (after all, they are not very expensive). I'm very fair with a cool complexion and always stayed away from corals because orange undertones wash me out, but this lipstick was a nice surprise! It is more on the pinkie side without being "bubblegum pink", it is more like a watermelon color, it makes me look more awake and brightens my face. I love how this color makes my lips look "juicy".
Every time I swatch this there is usually only a tester as most displays are sold out...until today. Finally got a tube and it's pretty darn great. One of those shades you might see on someone and think, Wow that is a swell looking color. This coral is the best blend of pink and coral and a bonus is it makes teeth look whiter than white. I love this lipstick line cause they wear so comfortably and the colors are very wearable.
SOOOOOOOOO SUPER GORGEOUS!!! Don't use this review as a reason to buy this because I just got this today and loved it so much I couldn't restrain myself from writing a review!! The colour is more pink than coral. I've yet to find the perfect coral lipstick! The formula as a first impression is long lasting and creamy. Much like the Revlon Lip Butters, It looks bad if you have dry lips. BUT!!! This is a very pretty colour! About the price, It is 7-11 dollars CAD which is a little expensive for a 14 year old with a babysitting job! I would repurchase!
I was dying for this color. I wanted it to look more like the third picture but it comes out more like the ones later on, a darker pink. This is a more pink coral, and quite bright. It's not my favorite color like I hoped, but I still wear it. I like it enough but probably won't repurchase. I got a good price as well so that keeps me happy. I totally love the Vivid color in Shocking Coral, but you can't wear that everywhere while this is a bit more wearable for day time/work. One thing I do love is that it feels super emollient. Not at all drying and I don't think it has an offensive smell. For some outfits, this color works.
I bought this after i ve read the reviews here and im glad i did ;-) I loove the color! Its pinkish on me not really coral. Perfect for summer or if you want a pop of color on your face.
Beautiful coral. Nice pigmentation. Not overly creamy. A bit firm actually. But what ruined this lipstick for me was the scent. It smells like old lady mixed with... vanilla. But not a yummy vanilla. A weird rancid vanilla. I love the color, but when I wear it, all I can think is "oh god the smell". That is the only reason I don't like the Color Sensational Lipstick line. If the smell won't bother you, go for it!
