I grabbed the Maybelline Colour Sensational lipstick months ago in duty free. It was only around £6 and I fell in love with the caramel colour instantly. I'd been after a light pink lipstick for a while and this little beauty ticked all the boxes. I'd never tried any of the Colour Sensational lipsticks before so I didn't really know what to expect but for just over a fiver I was willing to give it a go. 

So what did I think of the Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in beautiful Ice Caramel?

The colour is actually a pinky brown shade, similar to Velvet Teddy but not quite as nude and it's not a matte lipstick either. Although it's not matte, it isn't very glossy which I love as I don't like super shiny lips, but it does apply really smoothly. 

Although I really like it I don't think the staying power is amazing and I do need to reapply every few hours but it does last a lot longer than some of my cheaper lipsticks. Its doesn't having anything on the staying power of my Mac lipsticks but I'm still pretty happy with it as I don't mind reapplying every now and then.

This has been one of my favorite lipsticks over the last few months as I love the colour and the texture and I think the shade really suits my skin tone. This was the lipstick I chose to wear in my 'Get ready with me' video may back in July. Although I love it, I do think it's more of a spring/ summer colour so I'll probably be retiring for the winter months.

Overall I've really enjoyed wearing it as I think it's a very versatile shade that I've worn day or night. For the price I paid I couldn't be happier and I'll probably be investing in some more lipsticks from the Colour Sensational range as I'm quite impressed so far.

Have you tried this shade or others similar? What did you think?

  1. I really like the look of this lipstick; I would definitely agree it's more of a summer lipstick, I think in winter you need something a little more durable!
