The formula on the original (non-matte or metallic) version is decent, though it doesn't spread as nicely as similarly priced lipsticks. The strongest point of this line is the shade range, and the packaging is nice too. I find that these lipsticks turn (go bad) really quickly, much faster than lipsticks that I have from other brands.

I have three of these that are all very different. However, I love them all! Firstly, I have Vivid Rose, which is a very vibrant cool pink shade. It's safe to say it's nearly fluorescent. I think it's great fun in the spring and summer though. The second shade I have is Orchid Ecstasy, a bright purple that's definitely on the cool side of things. It works really well on my olive complexion, and I have received tons of compliments. The third shade I have is Smoking Red, a deep and dark red shade that I usually tone down and can't wear straight from the bullet. It's just that strong and powerful! I tend to wear that one by applying it with a lip brush. All three shades I have apply smoothly, last for hours, and aren't too bad to transfer. They don't fully "set" like liquid lipsticks, but they don't wind up on everything like many other competing products do.

I have a few of these but only one colour that I actually use shade 107 - 'Fairly Bare.
Its pale petal pink with a very subtle hint of frost not in the colour but evident in the 'feel' of the lipstick which is not very moisturising. Had this been a cream formulation, it would be perfect but I have deducted a lippie for the consistency. Lovely colour though...

I have now four colors of this lip line: barely brown, untainted spice, crazy for coffee, and going greige. I really love this line. The smell is a strong almost a signature "makeup" smell, but I don't mind it. The colors wear great. I do have to re apply every 4-6 hours if I am out running errands, and every 1-2 hours if I'm eating or out at night drinking. However, for the price you can't beat the quality. I just throw them in my purse and I am good to go for the day. Out of all the drugstore brands I always go back to these! Definitely recommend if you need something in the 5$ range!

I currently have these in the shades Shocking Coral and Red Revival.

These are great lipsticks to own.

I plan on getting On Fire Red, Touch of Spice, Vivid Rose etc.

I bought the shade Mauve Mania and whilst the colour is quite nice I cannot stand the smell. It's a sickly vanilla scent that takes a long time to get used to. Otherwise the colour payoff is good, a pinky mauve shade (definitely leans more towards pink than purple) that borders on being a bit sheer, would need to reapply a few times throughout the day. It does feel nice and creamy on the lips and is fairly easy to reapply. It did start to feel a bit grainy as the day went on and didn't last all day. The smell is what lets the product down as it's too much to have constantly under your nose.

I love these!!! I have about 7 or 8 Color Sensational lipsticks. The price is very reasonable and there are so many shades to choose from.

I would give this product line five lippies if I could, but Maybelline has disappointed me. I have about 12 of these,(some are backups), some discontinued colors such as Summer Sunset, Coral Gleam, Magnificant Mauve and Mauve Mania. Warm Me Up (warm pink) and Plum Perfect (dark plummy red) are great colors on me, so I am glad these are still in the line up. Oh, but wait...these will probably be discontinued if I don't stock up on it! I was looking for another Mauve Mania #450. Has anyone noticed that while the number is the same, the color name was changed to Romantic Rose? Ugh. This isn't mauve. It is a light milky pink. Why, Maybelline? Why do you do this?

I have to add the taste do not bother me but as my lippies get older and worn down, they get bitter tasting. Resulting to buying a back-up color which no longer exists.
