I love this lipstick, it's very sheer, moisturizing, not drying, it's like my lips, but better. I definitely would buy this product again. And the smell is very pleasant.
really like this a lot - color is sheer, but moisturizing, not drying as many nudes. will definitely buy again!
Wow, I did not expect this to mute out my lips soooo much. I expected something closer to Revlon's Creamsicle, but this came off more as a full on nude lippie on my naturally rosey brown lips. I mean I was thinking of picking up MAC Creme de Nude, but if I decide I really like this, there is no need for that. The thing I am worried about is at first few applications (without full face proper makeup), this came off a bit more Myth than Creme de Nude, and on me, Myth = concealer lips on me. To truly judge this long term, I need to play with different looks. And if my opinion sways more one way or the other, I will update accordingly. But as of now, I am on the fence. The quality & comfort of the lipstick as well as that fact that this $6 lipstick can work the job of more expensive lines make me comfortable giving it a 4 for now. How well this color works on my NW20 skin with almost black hair, brown eyes has yet to be determined. continued >>
Bare to be Bold is a beige nude with the slightest hint of pink. I think it's the pink, sheerness, and glossiness that makes this shade a wearable nude for all skintones. Although, personally, I find that this is one is sheerer than the others Color Whispers I own (Pin Up Peach, Coral Ambition, and Lust for Blush), hence the rating of a 4. It has light pigmentation and it's not as buildable as the others either.
It works for my NC30-35 skintone, but it's not my favorite nude lipstick (that would be MAC Blankety).
It glides on smoothly and lasts for a few hours, but I don't mind reapplication. It's also not very moisturizing, so I recommend you wear a lip balm underneath, but please note that Maybelline doesn't claim these to be moisturizing, nor do they claim these to be pigmented, so you can't blame them for its lack of moisturizing ingredients and pigments!
It retails for $6-$7.
Would I repurchase? No.
