We’re almost done with the reviews, bare with me. I just really want to get them out so you have a general idea on what to get. The last two items I want to talk about are the lipsticks, which I only picked up two. Of course, I picked the two purples. Hey.....its fall, I had too. Haha. Anyways...... I am going to put the last two together. check these out.
Again, I haven’t tried alot of Maybelline cosmetics, I don’t why, but I haven’t. It wasn’t until the Vivids that I ventured in to Maybelline, and of course collection, which has me looking at their permanent line.
What Maybelline says:
• Crisper color from pure pigments
• Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar
• Lipcolor so rich, so stunning…it’s sensational
L to R: Violet Intrigue & Lavender Voltage
The first shade I picked up is called Violet Intrigue of the Color Sensational line. Other than the vivids, I never tried any other of their lipstick. And just like vivids, it is full of color. This is a violet with some fushia tones, so there is some pinky in it.
The other shade is called, Lavender Voltage. It is more of a deep violet than other, I really don’t see lavender, but that’s just me. Unlike the other, this has some bluer undertones. Although these are purple, it is not so extreme that its not wearable. They can be worn day or night without looking so done up.
How did it perform?
The application glides on smoothly, it’s not super moisturizing but its not dry either. They last fairly well, between 5 to 6 hours before I have to retouch. It is also not super opaque but still well pigmented with a bit of a shine. You can most definitely build up the color for more intense color payoff.
Violet Intrigue & Lavender Voltage
-- can build up the color
-- affordable ($7.99)
-- great purples
-- leaves a slight stain
-- limited edition
-- I don’t like to smell to much
I just resist a good purple, and these didn’t disappoint. For the price, you are getting great colors and pigmentation, and wear. I don’t what their permanent line really looks like, but I am sure to check them out.
Hope you enjoyed all the reviews and found them helpful. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
