Review: Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipstain


Okay-- now to my favorite drugstore lipstain!

Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipstain, $6.99 at Ulta.

The color I chose was Wink of Pink.

This has the same felt tip applicator, which I really prefer to brush applicators~ just a lot easier to apply.

BTW-- I have a beef with Maybelline....
In their ad, they say the model is wearing Wink of Pink... which is a LIE. Just look..


How it was in real life:

Still a pretty color! But I bought it thinking it was a lighter pink. Siiiiigh.

All-in-all, I absolutely love this stain!! Really though, in my mind, the Color Sensational lip line can do no wrong. I am in love with their lipsticks/glosses/stains. Such great color/pigmentation and hydration and selection.

Since it IS a stain, it isn't very hydrating-- though it is significantly better than the old stains (ex: Cover Girl (not to pick on them!)). So I used my trusty Dr. Pepper chapstick on top of this as my "hydrator."

Here is what it looked like after 3.5 hours!!

Which from far away wasn't too bad!!

What do you think? Will you try this? I want to hear some of your stain experiences!! =)

Until Next Time~

  1. That looks great! I never wear lipstick because I swear it makes me look clownish unless it is completely neutral, but I might try this!I hope they have a little lighter pink than that though for me ... I'd like to have what that model is ACTUALLY wearing haha
