AMW Reviews: Maybelline ColorSensational Fifth Avenue Fuchsia

Happy Thursday everyone!
My mood hasn't been great for the past few days!  I was sick since last weekend until the start of the week, then my dog Pudding passed away last Tuesday.  Seldom do you find negative happenings on my blog but yeah, life is like that!  We do have our ups and down, I'm not saying I am perfectly fine now but life has to move on, and I'm trying my hardest.  

Speaking of moving on, I have been looking rather pale so picking up the brightest lipstick I could find and yet, gives the comfort at the same time of not looking too "shockingly bright" is one big challenge I embraced!  I found a gorgeous lip color that I used even during my Tokyo Trip!

Shade is 160 Fifth Ave. Fuchsia

Maybelline says ---
  • Crisper color from pure pigments.
  • Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar
  • Lipcolor so rich, so's sensational.
  • 68 captivating shades.
AMW says ---
  • Better packaging as compared to the previous Maybelline ColorSensational Moisture Extreme Lipcolor.
  • The cap is the same color as the lipstick which makes it easier for us to know the shade without peeking the name.
  • Includes manufacturing date and sealed upon purchase to ensure freshness.

  • A perfect, bright fuchsia shade that can brighten up the whole look even without eye makeup.
  • Very pigmented, you get the shade on first swipe.
  • Applies smoothly and has a slight sheen finish which prevents lips from cracking or drying.
  • I can't seem to find one for now!  I love this lip color!
A perfect "to-go-to" lipcolor on lazy days that I don't want to put much makeup!  Since Japan was extremely cold, I was too lazy to do much makeup so I just applied this lip color and it goes perfectly well with the Cherry Blossoms! :)


  • It helps to prep your lips with your choice of lip balm to prevent dryness.
  • feel free to top this with your favorite gloss for that shiny look!
  • On a regular day, you can apply this lipstick without much makeup.  On a party night, apply this lip color with full eye makeup for that dramatic look!
  • If you think the lip color is too bright for your taste, blot your lips with a tissue paper to lessen "brightness" and "pigmentation".
  • Use a lip brush for more defined lips!
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who likes the bright, summery lip color!

Where to purchase and how much?
At Maybelline counters for Php399.00 (approx $9.30).  Thanks to the reader who confirmed the price :)
