Maybelline Rich Ruby, All Fired Up, Pink Sugar Creamy Matte Lip Colors

Maybelline Rich Ruby ColorSensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation that covered the lips for the most part, but there is a very light translucency to it overall. The texture was lightweight, velvety, and smooth and applied evenly to the lips. It was really comfortable to wear and wasn’t drying over the six hours it lasted, and I didn’t experience feathering or bleeding either. Clinique Cherry Pop (P, $18.00) is lighter. NARS Deadly Catch (LE, $26.00) is warmer. MAC Frank-n-furter (LE, $16.00) is darker. Kat Von D Hexagram (P, $21.00) is lighter, less glossy. Chanel La Desiree (327) (LE, $34.00) is darker. NYX Chic Red (P, $4.00) is darker. MAC Ronnie Red (LE, $16.00) is brighter. MAC MAC Red (P, $16.00) is cooler. Colour Pop Creeper (P, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy.

Maybelline Just a Glimmer, A Wink of Pink, Fuchsia Flicker, Lilac Lumi Baby Gloss Lipglosses

Maybelline Baby Lips Lipgloss ($4.49 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a new formula that’s supposed to be shiny, non-sticky, and hydrating for four hours with twelve shades divided into three finishes. I’m reviewing them based on finish, so this post features the four shimmery shades. They’re lightweight, mostly non-sticky (a very slight tackiness develops after two to three hours of wear), wear for one to three hours, and are comfortable and hydrating. The formula has a sweet, fruity-floral scent that tastes like perfume-y soap during the entire length of wear; I could taste it just talking to someone, and it ruined anything I ate or drank. The shimmer in these shades is noticeable in texture, though they are fine enough not to feel particularly gritty, but the thinner consistency made them apparent on the lips. They were comfortable to wear, though, and they don’t feel heavy and keep and maintain hydration going for an hour or two after most of the gloss has worn away. The formula is sheer with a lot of shades looking the same once applied, but they may vary wildly from person to person due to much of it being dependent on your natural lip color.

It had semi-opaque color payoff that went on evenly but had a slightly drier consistency compared to most of the range.
