Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Review

My sister got me these 2 lipsticks - i picked them out of course :). The red one is Very Cherry and the pink is Pink Please. I picked these two out because
1) they aren't overly shimmery,
2) i heard very good reviews of Pink Please,
& 3) i wanted a red lipstick
There was another red that, to be honest - i kind of liked better, but the store had just run out =/ So i settled for these two!  Oh, i'm wearing Very Cherry in my most recent post by the way :)

Texture: The texture is sooo nice! It's creamy and feels really moisturizing, which is my personal favorite <3
Taste: It doesn't really have one, it does have a scent that some people may not be able to stand, but you can't smell or taste it once it's on your lips
Drying?: If you put on a bit of chapstick before you apply the lipstick, you shouldn't have too much of a problem. I first tried this without the chapstick and it was a little drying, so i tried applying the chapstick then the Color Sensational & didn't have as big a problem anymore :)
Durability: It stays on for a long time - i'm honestly surprised! I don't know why, but i would always feel like it had gotten messed up or faded a lot, so i checked in the mirror and found that it was still all there :). Of course I touched up a little because i had been drinking and eating and talking, but it wasn't really obvious
Pigmentation: The lipsticks are super pigmented. The slogan for this product is "fall in love with color, all over again" & i have to agree <3.
Packaging: I really like the packaging, of course it's not super duper gorgeous, but i still like it. I like the size and the cap stays on really well, so you don't have to worry to much about it coming off in your bag
Price: They're sold by me for about $6 & i think it's worth it, but this is the first drugstore lipstick i have tried so i really have nothing to compare it to in this price range.

Overall thoughts
If I'm being honest, i used to be afraid of wearing any color on my lips at all because i always thought it would get messed up and whatever, but this product made me love and enjoy wearing bright lipstick. I would definately repurchase this product! I think that anyone that wants to start wearing non-neutral lipstick (or even neutral-ish with a slight tint for that matter) should really pick one (or a few ;) of these up because they are great for hesitant people - like me!


  1. Ooh I LOVE lipstick! But I don't think I'll be getting anymore anytime soon unless it's a nude tint or it stains only a little. I'm still searching. heh Best wishes! Thanks for the review!

  2. Thanks for the review! I have been searching for the perfect red lipstick forever! I am going to have to try this!

  3. I love lipstick so much! I prefer it over lip gloss always, it's just more dramatic and eye-catching. Right now I want a good wintery color, like a deep berry or really really pale pink.

  4. I want Pink Please!!

    Anyways check out my blog too if you want :)

  5. I agree, I really love this lipstick! But you know what another GREAT red's by NYC & it's only 99 cents. . .Retro Red ! If your looking and don't have much cash at least! Your blog kicks butt mama !

  6. im late on poting comments, but i bought a maybelliner color sensational lipstick in totally toffee. it was so lovely. and i got it on sale for $5 at walmart. it reminds me of pink please. it's a pink basedd nude. and it smells like coconut!
