In my last post I spoke about how I was on the hunt for my perfect nude lip colour. The next lipstick I decided to try was another by Maybelline, a Color Sensational lipstick in the shade ‘Tantalising Taupe’.
The packaging looks classy and the shade is printed on the bottom, which makes it easy to see which colour you are picking up. The lid also feels quite secure so you wouldn’t have to worry about it falling off in your bag.
The texture of the lipstick is really nice. It is very moisturising, which is great for this time of year, and it glides easily onto the lips. The lipstick almost sinks into your lips, which gives a smooth finish and feels a bit like a lip balm to wear. The formula of the lipstick does mean that it is not very long lasting, which would normally put me off, but it is so easy to reapply, you can do it without a mirror.
The actual shade is a lovely browny pink colour which I think would suit a lot of people. It is a subtle nude, that doesn’t look like concealer-like and would look great for a laid back daytime look or paired with more dramatic eye makeup for night time. I have worn this shade to work and received quite a few compliments.
Below is a swatch of the colour:
The swatch looks more brown than it looks on the lips. On my lips it definitely looks more brown/pink.
Overall I really love this lipstick, it feels great on the lips and the colour is gorgeous. The only downside is the longevity, but I think the good points outweigh this one negative. If you are looking for a great nude lipstick I would highly recommend this one.
Overall Rating- 9/10
