In My Opinion:
I love love LOVE Maybelline lip products in general. They have amazing colour choices and finishes for a drugstore brand. I always seem to end up with at least one of their lip products every time I go to a chemist and I’ve never regretted a purchase.
I recently purchased some of their Color Drama lip products and I have to say that they are just that, DRAMATIC! Well most of them are dramatic anyway and I just love them.
They are soft and creamy so you will need to keep them sharp and to allow for a smooth application. Because they are pencil shaped you get more of a precise line than with a lipstick alone which is great considering how bright they are. All except one of these (Minimalist) has a velvet semi-matte finish. Minimalist has a sheer finish. I didn’t find that any of the shades I have drying.
The range has 10 shades which I think allow something for everyone. There are pinks, reds, purples and nudes. This is a colour range that can take you from day to night and they look exactly like the colours on the packaging.
If you are into dramatic lips this is the lip product you will want to try. They are perfect to use to dress up a simple eye look.
I have 5 shades so far and I can’t wait to get some more. I’ve Berry Much, In With Coral, Pink So Chic, Fuchsia Desire and Light It Up. My favourites at the moment are Berry Much and In With Coral and that because I’m obsessed with these colours at the moment.
I have swatches of all them all and I think the only one I won’t get is the shade Minimalist and that because it’s not so bright, it has a sheer finish which is different to the others and I have similar colours in my collection.
I probably would not wear these lipsticks if I was going for dinner somewhere. Reason being is that they do smudge. This doesn’t bother me all that much because I’ve this issue with a lot of lipsticks.
I bought mine in Chemist Warehouse in Australia and they are currently only $4.95. I’ve listed their RRP below.
This is an amazing product for such a small price.
