I recently received some gorgeous Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipsticks to for my honest review. I love Maybelline New York. The products are really nice quality and affordably priced.
I want to focus my review on two of their lipsticks lines — the Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lipstick and the Color Sensational Powder Matte Lipstick:
So pretty! Doesn’t this make you want to play with lipstick? This is almost the full shade range of the Metallic Mattes ($7.49 USD). I am only missing the shade Silk Stone. The shades I have are from left to right — White Gold, Pure Gold, Copper Spark, Hot Lava, Copper Rose, Molten Bronze, Smoked Silver, Gunmetal and Serpentine.
Here are the swatches:
This give a very matte finish with a subtle metallic gleam. It feels comfortable on even though it is matte. It does have honey in it for hydration.
I really love most of these shades and can see myself wearing the first three. They will be especially gorgeous in the summer time The others are a bit bold for me, but maybe for nights out. But if you want a bold metallic matte, try one of the more fun colors like Copper Rose or Serpentine.
These are the shades available in the Color Sensational Powder Matte Lipstick ($7.49 USD). These colors are cool, concrete colored shades: Cruel Ruby, Nocturnal Rose, Carnal Brown, Concrete Jungle and Smoky Jade.
You can tell that this is an extreme matte finish. It goes on matte and stays matte for hours. Cruel Ruby looked the best on me, which is strange because I usually only wear nudes and pinks. This is a gorgeous shade, though. Really rich. I think I can pull it off because it is a matte.
I think both of these collections are really different and fun. I think that if you like unusual shades along with pretty reds and pinks, you will enjoy these lipsticks!
What’s your go to lipstick brand and shade?
