My thoughts

PRICE

This product retails for $9.49 USD on the maybelline website. It’s $2.00 more expensive than the maybelline lipsticks, which I love. But also, keep in mind that the price can change depending on where you buy it.

PACKAGING

I think the packaging is nice, the tube color matches the product and that makes it a lot easier to identify the one you want in your collection. The applicator is diamond-shaped and I find it really easy to work with.

COLOR SELECTION

The color selection is nice, but I think it would be better if they added more nude colors.

SWATCHES OF THE COLORS THAT I HAVE

With flash and without flash.

  • Lover (top one): this color swatched beautifully. With just one coat it was fully opaque.
  • Believer (bottom one): this one was more difficult, It took three coats to get it this opaque, which it was really disappointing.

 

AFTER WARING IT ALL DAY

After wearing the color lover for seven hours I have to say that I don’t hate the product but it’s not my favorite either. As I’vealready said, this color applied beautifully with just one coat. It dries really quickly, but the stickiness stays ALL DAY LONG.  You definitely know that you have something on your lips. By the end of the day, after eating and drinking, it had worn a little bit on the inside of my bottom lip, but other than that it was almost intact.

Pros 

  • dries quickly.
  • good coverage with one coat (lover).
  • doesn’t bleed, smudge, or transfer.
  • stays all day long.

Cons

  • it leaves a sticky feeling on your lips.
  • the darker color that I bought (believer) was really streaky and patchy. I had to build it up.
  • It’s so hard to take off!

FINAL THOUGHTS

I have to say that I’m 50/50 with this product. I like that it stays all day long, but if I’m honest the stickiness is really uncomfortable, at least for me. I don’t recommend the shade believer, at all. If you want to try them for yourself I’d say to stick with the nudes. I f I had to rate it I’d give it a 3/5.

Also, I prefer the maybelline matte lipsticks. In fact they’re my favorite matte lipstick ever. I made a post on them, check it out here.
