I hope all of you enjoyed my reviews of the new Maybelline On the Runway eyeshadow quad reviews as much as I enjoyed playing with them. But there is more in this collection than the eyeshadows, which included lipglosses, lipsticks, eyeliner, and nails. I didn’t pick up any of the liners or nail polish, just cause I didn’t gravitate toward those. I, of course HAD to get a few of the lip products. So....... we’re going to look at the lipglosses today and the lipsticks tomorrow.
So lets get started......
First up, we had the lipgloss that I was much interested in. It is the Color Sensational High Shine Lipgloss in Purple Royale. I stood out from the rest because it is a dark, but unique looking color. It is very in season type color, with it being fall and usually darker colors are worn during this time of the year.
Let’s get into the details......
What does Maybelline say?
- Sophisticated color and shine from pure pigments
• Luxurious feel from nourishing honey nectar
The Shade and How did it perform?
In the tube, it appears as an opaque deep purple with blue undertones. This is a unique color don’t see. Once I swatched it, I was somewhat disappointed but not that all surprised. It came off, sheer and with a color like this it could be expected. When I wore it, it appeared very deep, sheer, and it almost pulls slightly grayish, which I don’t find flattering at all. However, my sister and mom both tried it, and looks great on them, but their are slightly deeper in skintone. With a dark lipliner, such as Vino from MAC it looks a bit better, I will have to play with other color to see how it works out. It is a cream finish, it is not sticky, it feels smooth, but applies streaky.
As for their longevity, I have 2 other of these from Maybelline permanent line, and I don’t those or these to be long wearing. On me it wears off within 1 and 1/2 hours.
-- applies smoothly
-- unique color
-- little streaky
-- it colors off a different color than in the tube
Although the color in the tube is lovely, I don’t care to much this particular shade like I thought I would. I don’t really have bad thoughts on it, it just didn’t work for me. If you like dark shades, you will like this one.
Hope you enjoyed, stay tuned for the following few reviews left.
