This lipstick is one of my favorites. You don't need to use lip gloss over it because it has a good amount of shine to it. My favorite color is "Cherry on top" because it looks good with my skin tone and its a fun bright redish pink color that works for spring and summer. It covers my lips really well especially since my upper lip is naturally tinted darker than my bottom lip. They have gorgeous shades that I can't wait to try.
Depending on the shade, it doesn't color very well. I wore "Pink possibilities" to add a nice light pink color to my lips but my top lip is naturally tinted darker than my bottom lip so this lipstick only colored my bottom lip well. My top lip looked pink but my natural tinted lip would show through especially since the lipstick doesn't last all day.
Overall: Depending on the color, it covers well and lasts for most of the day. It feels smooth on your lips but if you don't wear a lip balm under the lipstick, the lipstick will dry out your lips.
I would repurchase this product in the "Cherry on top" shade because it covered well but not "Pink possibilities"
I totally love these. I have been looking for exactly this lipstick for what feels like forever. I have three shades - 'Who Wore it Redder' which is a gorgeous pinky red, 'Cherry on Top' which is a bright pink perfect for summer, and 'A Plum Prospect' which is a surprisingly easy-to-wear and flattering purple/fuschia.
These are SO easy to wear - they go on smoothly, are hydrating, and apply just like a sheer lipstick usually does but have great colour payoff (Color Whisper isn't really an appropriate name, as they give much more than a whisper of colour and are quite buildable). I also find they're really long lasting. I've actually had several instances of people complimenting me on my lip colour and asking what I'm wearing HOURS after I've applied it. The colour definitely fades, but it fades to a really pretty stain, so I have no complaints.
They're a little pricey at around $10 CAD, but I've been lucky to find them on sale on a few occasions at around $5 or $6 (at Target). Honestly, though, if I ran out of any of these colours I'd have no hesitation to re-purchase at full price, as they're totally worth it. Quickly becoming a Holy Grail lipstick!
LOVE THIS! after awhile of wearing this product it doesn't go uneven like some lipsticks it also doesn't settle into the creases of your lips. amazing product and even better price.
I own the shade "Oh La Lilac" and I am absolutely in love with this lip color! I found the formula to be very moisturizing but the only problem that I found with this particular shade is that on my lips it has a tendency to require some sort of color underneath to boost the color payoff.
Just purchased one of these today after seeing so many high reviews on here! These probably would of never gotten my attention if you all hadn't been raving about them. In all honesty the packaging is cheap looking and I tend to always go for Revlon lip products, but I'm happy I tried this. I bought Oh LaLilac because I've been searching high and low for a light purple! It's almost the color of some of the links here on make up alley lol. There are always loads of nudes and light pinks but never any purples in a lot of lines or if there are it's a deep plum. I definitely wanted something the color of lilac and that's EXACTLY what this looks like on my lips and in the tube. I am a little bummed there doesn't seem to be that much product when you roll the tube all the way out? It just seems like less than what you usually get. I did knock off one lippy for that in price rating.
There are a lot of tinted lip balms out there right now, and if you're looking for a heavily pigmented but still balmy lip product, look no further because this stuff is perfect. I just wanted to brighten up my natural lip color, but I didn't want shine, shimmer, or opaque coverage. This stuff has great color payoff, but you can still see my lips underneath and I LOVE that. It's very moisturizing but not shiny. It doesn't have a ton of staying power, but it does gently stain my lips in a pleasant way that eliminates the need for constantly reapplying!
What a fantastic range of lip colours!! I am a big fan of the Revlon Lip Butters, but these are even better!
These wee beauties are really affordable (over $10 cheaper than the Revlon Lip Butters in New Zealand) and I managed to get a 2-for-1 deal which made it even better! The packaging is sleek and they're slim and on the small side so won't take up much room in the makeup bag. And, unlike the Lip Butters, they don't melt or crumble when you apply them, but are just as moisturising.
The shade range is pretty limited, but I LOVE the shade Orange Attitude on my NC44 skin - it's a really easy to wear everyday red shade on my darker lips and looks amazing with a red lip pencil underneath to make it bolder. The colour builds up nicely with several applications. I also have Who Wore it Reder, which actually comes up like a plum/fuschia on my lips and the pigment is REALLY strong on this one - no whispering here, even with just one application!
I was surprised at how long they lasted, too. Even after eating, they stayed on strong and didn't stray all over the face. The glossiness wears off quickly but over about 6 hours they fade to a bit of a stain.
5 lippies for an incredibly versatile, buildable, affordable, moisturising and relatively long-wearing lip colour range!
YASSS! I love maybellines lip products so when i got this i was soo pumped! I had first purchased One Size Fits Pearl a pink nude color and loved it, it was a perfect wash of color and sooo creamy! Months later I decided to pick up a darker color to try, beary Ready. This was still the amazingly creamy lip stick (practically a balm) but a much much more pigmented color! The plus to the darker color was that it stained your lips and hydrated! 2 in one!!!
I have this in "Made-It Mauve" and I love using this on days I'm leaving the house with little to no make up. Whenever I run to the gas station or grocery store looking like complete crap I like throwing this on and it does make me feel a bit more put together. This color was my favorite out of all of the ones I tried because I think it feels like "my lip color but better". It is VERY moisturizing and sort of feels like chapstick or carmex. I definitely wouldn't use this if I was going to work or for a night out but it's definitely very sheer and light weight for a super natural look or just going to the gym or something. You could wear a lip liner underneath it and it would make it more pigmented and appropriate for work and be longer wearing. This was probably the most pigmented one out of all of the colors I swatched, though.
Even though I'm not a vivid color lipstick fan, I thought I'd try out Maybelline's colour whisper in Oh La La Lilac after watching a tutorial online using Mac's Viva Glam Nicki 2. (Perfect dupe by the way). These colours are so vivid and go on so smoothy. They are super hydrating and pigmented. I am more of a matte girl so these aren't for me but I'm sure any glossy lip lover would adore these.
