Happy start of the week and hoping for a great October for you guys! To jumpstart the week, I am sharing (yet another) lipstick brand that almost NEVER fail! Maybelline New York!
Their newest lipstick line is unique, unique in a way that they actually got into the Korean Gradient Lip trend! I originally thought a "Western" brand won't make it to the cut of creating good gradient lip products, but thankfully, I am wrong!
The new Maybelline New York Lip Flush Bitten Lip by Color Sensational. This line isn't created for "Korean-looking gradient lips", this line is created for that "just bitten" lip effect that we all love!
Can you pick your favorite shade out of the 4 I got?
I've actually tested all these 4 shades in just a week, honestly speaking, I tested all 4 shades in A DAY and already picked my favorite! As much as I would like to post my favorite shade ASAP, I actually took a step back and took longer time! Thankfully, first impression does last!
L-R RD01, PK01, RD02 and RD03
AMW says ---
- All 4 shades have the right amount of pigmentation.
- Colors are build-able.
- The colors seem to blend into the lips perfectly.
- It does give a perfect "just bitten lips" look.
- Has a watermelon/melon taste. Sorry I can't seem to put my finger on to the taste, but it may bother you a bit if you are not used to scented lip products.
- Gives off a nice sheen.
- Hydrating, non-drying even on extremely chapped lips.
- Re-application is needed as it doesn't hold on to more than 4 hours.
- Super affordable!
PK01 Strawberry Cheesecake
A perfect shade for those just starting out on gradient-lips effect. The result is sweet, young and cheerful! I would call this an everyday shade.
RD01 Raspberry SmoothieA nice start-up red lip color! The effect is just right, nothing overwhelming! It almost looks like my own lips because of the dark pigmentation of my lip color. This would work as an "office lipstick".
RD02 CherryA step-up to your usual lip color. It gives a medium to darker red lip color at the center but creating a slight blur on the exterior! This is a perfect lip color for ALL skin tone! The shade is flattering for most Filipinas I can imagine!
RD03 Blackberry CinnamonA deep plum color at the center of the lips making this a perfect dupe for my favorite Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar in Dolly Grape. This has more sheen as compared to Laneige but the result is quite close! This is a perfect night-out color!
Overall, I am impressed with how "Perfect" these Maybelline Lip Flush Bitten Lip by Color Sensational Lip products are! They are almost fool-proof even I don't have to think twice in application! The nude are on the exterior of my lips but feel free to be bold and adventurous and flip the lipstick around for more dimension.
Each Lip Flush Bitten Lip are priced at Php299.00 (approx $6.60) available in ALL leading Maybelline counters nationwide.
