Round-up: Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color

Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color
Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color

Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a new set of shades that’s supposed to have “one-stroke intensity” in an “opaque, creamy clay base.” For the most part, the shade range is mostly opaque to fully opaque with some falling short with semi-sheer to semi-opaque, more uneven coverage. The texture is smooth, creamy, lightweight, and it glides on without tugging or dragging; some shades feel more satiny while others have a bit more slip. Unfortunately, some of the ones in this review were particularly slippery, which made them harder to apply evenly. I’m a fan of the Color Sensational formulas, but the one thing that I’m not a fan of (and that can be a deal-breaker) is the scent, which is a very strong, sweet, lightly perfume-y scent that lingers and sometimes tastes soapy.

Maybelline Fiery Fuchsia Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color
Maybelline Fiery Fuchsia Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color

Maybelline Fiery Fuchsia Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a bold, bright medium-dark fuchsia with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation that applied fairly evenly–there was some slip to the formula that left very, very subtle streaks around the edge, but I did not find these to be noticeable to my eye when looking at myself in a regular mirror. The texture was creamy enough to glide on but didn’t slide around when worn. It wore well for six hours, left a stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating. Charlotte Tilbury Electric Poppy (P, $32.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Dangerously Red (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Alpha (P, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Burberry Magenta (33) (P, $34.00) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced It's Happening (P, $21.00) is less glossy, cooler, lighter (90% similar).

Maybelline Rebel Pink Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark berry pink with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff, so some of the natural lip color can influence the end result, particularly if your lips are darker or more saturated. The texture was lightweight, slightly less creamy than the other shades in the range, but it still applied evenly. This shade lasted for five hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. Bite Beauty #002 (LE, $36.00) is glossier (95% similar). Urban Decay Menace (P, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Flat Out Fabulous (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar).

NARS Carthage (P, $26.00) is darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Bauhau5 (P, $20.00) is less glossy (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Berry Bossy Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff, though not full coverage. The texture was lightweight, moderately emollient, and glided on without tugging. This shade lasted for five hours on me and was very slightly hydrating. Colour Pop Plastics (LE, $5.00) is cooler (95% similar). Anastasia #10 (Vol. 1) (P) is lighter (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Hel's Bells (P, $32.00) is warmer, lighter (95% similar). Givenchy Heroic Pink (212) (LE, $36.00) is glossier, lighter (90% similar).

MAC Fashion Revival (LE, $17.00) is warmer, lighter (80% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Little Pretty (130) (DC, $30.00) is warmer, lighter (80% similar). Tarte Twerk (P, $20.00) is brighter, lighter (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Blackest Berry Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, dark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a natural shine. It had semi-opaque pigmentaiton that applied unevenly and looked patchy on the lips. The color had moderate slip, which caused some of the color to gather into lip lines as well. This shade lasted for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. I would also be concerned it could be prone to feathering on some (it did not for me). MAC Cyber (P, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Smoked Purple (P, $17.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Colour Pop Hutch (LE, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Maybelline Midnight Merlot Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color
Maybelline Midnight Merlot Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color

Maybelline Midnight Merlot Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a dark, red-burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a fine pearl. It had a more natural sheen to its finish without being truly glossy, but it did suffer from more uneven application and sheerer coverage due to the extra slip. If it had been more satiny like other shades, I think it would have applied better. This shade lasted for six hours on me, left a stain behind, and only had minor settling into lip lines for me over time. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Makeup Geek Risque (P, $15.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Dahlia (P, $18.00) is glossier, cooler (95% similar).

Maybelline Smoking Red Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, muted burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish.

The formula wasn’t hydrating, but it also wasn’t drying. Marc Jacobs Beauty Bad Behavior (LE, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Rouge Audace (59) (LE, $37.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Maybelline Dynamite Red Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a bold, bright medium-dark red with subtle warm undertones and a satin finish. It had very nearly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, creamy consistency that wasn’t too heavy or too thin. It sat well on the lips and didn’t slide around over the six hours it lasted. The formula was comfortable to wear but not particularly hydrating. NARS Mysterious Red (P, $27.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Rita (P, $32.00) is glossier, brighter, lighter (95% similar).

Maybelline Orange Danger Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is bold, bright, medium-dark orange with strong red undertones and a mostly matte finish. It was one of the more matte shades in the range, but the consistency was firmer and harder to apply–I felt like I really had to press the bullet to my lips in order to get smooth coverage. It lasted for five hours but was somewhat drying. Estee Lauder Uninhibited (P, $32.00) is glossier, brighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty Cayenne (P, $26.00) is glossier (95% similar).

Maybelline Mauve It Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color
Maybelline Mauve It Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color

Maybelline Mauve It Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, muted mauve with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had very nearly opaque pigmentation with a creamy, velvety consistency that glided on easily and delivered the coverage as promised–one-stroke intensity. The only drawback to this shade was that some of the color seemed to gather in lip lines as the color wore down, but the creamier formula made it easier to press my lips together to smooth the color out of the lines. This shade lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Amorous (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Secret Salma (P, $32.00) is lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Brown Blush (P, $7.99) is more muted, darker (90% similar).

Maybelline Raging Raisin Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark burgundy-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a creamy, glide-on texture that was comfortable to wear and flattering on as it didn’t emphasize the texture of my lips. This shade lasted for five hours, left behind a slight stain, and was neither drying nor hydrating. Bite Beauty Nori (P, $26.00) is warmer, darker (95% similar).

Maybelline Coffee Addiction Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark red-brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. The coverage was fantastic with creamy, opaque color that applied smoothly and evenly. It was comfortable to wear over a five hour period, though it was neither hydrating nor drying. Tarte Latte (LE, $20.00) is glossier (95% similar). Colour Pop Kae (LE, $6.00) is less glossy, warmer (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Birkin Brown (P, $32.00) is cooler, lighter (85% similar).

Maybelline Chocoholic Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, reddish brown with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It was semi-opaque and had moderate slip, which made it harder to apply evenly as it would seep into lip lines and move around a lot. I didn’t experience feathering, which isn’t something I typically experience, but it might be an issue if you are prone to feathering due to the vampy hue and slippery feel. It lasted for five hours, left behind a stain, but it did sit in lip lines easily. Urban Decay Disturbed (P, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Editrix (250) (P, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Paramour (LE, $5.00) is cooler, darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Prim (P, $6.00) is cooler (95% similar).

MAC Runner (LE, $17.00) is lighter (80% similar). Estee Lauder Desirous (P, $30.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a new set of shades that’s supposed to have “one-stroke intensity” in an “opaque, creamy clay base.” For the most part, the shade range is mostly opaque to fully opaque with some falling short with semi-sheer to semi-opaque, more uneven coverage. The texture is smooth, creamy, lightweight, and it glides on without tugging or dragging; some shades feel more satiny while others have a bit more slip. Unfortunately, some of the ones in this review were particularly slippery, which made them harder to apply evenly. I’m a fan of the Color Sensational formulas, but the one thing that I’m not a fan of (and that can be a deal-breaker) is the scent, which is a very strong, sweet, lightly perfume-y scent that lingers and sometimes tastes soapy.

Maybelline Wickedly White Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color

Maybelline Wickedly White Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a stark white with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a smooth, creamy consistency that glided across the lips without tugging, but it is more unforgiving applied directly to the lips–it’s something that will be better over a lip liner or primer, but it’s probably most usable as a layering or mixing shade to lighten other colors than worn on its own. It lasted for three hours on me, gathered in lip lines, and was neither drying nor hydrating. Bite Beauty Blanc (P, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Primary #1 (Vol. 1) (P) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Frosting (P, $17.00) is more pigmented, lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever C600 (P, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Iced (P, $18.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). MAC City Slick (LE, $17.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Nude Thrill Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a light beige with warm, peachy undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a creamy consistency that applied without tugging. The texture was lightweight and comfortable to wear, though it was not a hydrating formula. As it wears away, the color seems prone to settling into lip lines. This shade wore for three and a half hours on me. MAC Myth (P, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Maybelline Purely Nude (P, $7.99) is lighter (95% similar). Maybelline Blushing Beige (915) (P, $7.49) is glossier (90% similar).

Maybelline Gone Greige Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a lightweight, creamy texture that applied well and looked even. This shade lasted for four and a half hours, and it didn’t settle into lip lines like the previous two shades did! The formula was not hydrating on me, but it also was not drying. Tarte Texas Toast (LE, $20.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Oblivion (P, $17.00) is lighter (80% similar). Colour Pop Kapow (LE, $6.00) is cooler, darker (80% similar).

Maybelline Grey Over It Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, muted taupe-brown with warm undertones and a satin finish.

Too Faced Naughty by Nature (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Mess Around (P, $6.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Stone (P, $17.00) is lighter (80% similar).

Maybelline Violet Vixen Color Sensational Lip Color

Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a new set of shades that’s supposed to have “one-stroke intensity” in an “opaque, creamy clay base.” For the most part, the shade range is mostly opaque to fully opaque with some falling short with semi-sheer to semi-opaque, more uneven coverage. The texture is smooth, creamy, lightweight, and it glides on without tugging or dragging; some shades feel more satiny while others have a bit more slip. Unfortunately, some of the ones in this review were particularly slippery, which made them harder to apply evenly. I’m a fan of the Color Sensational formulas, but the one thing that I’m not a fan of (and that can be a deal-breaker) is the scent, which is a very strong, sweet, lightly perfume-y scent that lingers and sometimes tastes soapy.

Maybelline Violet Vixen Color Sensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a bold, bright, medium-dark purple with warm, red undertones and a satiny sheen with very fine pearl. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation that applied unevenly and tended to clump up. It gathered in my lip lines noticeably within two hours of wear–I think it’s too emollient for the type of color it is. The color lasted for four and a half hours while leaving behind a very strong, fuchsia-tinted stain. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Pandemonium (P, $17.00) is less glossy, warmer, more muted (95% similar). Urban Decay Jawbreaker (P, $17.00) is warmer, more muted (90% similar). Smashbox Violet Riot (P, $21.00) is more muted (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Alt-Girl (LE, $16.00) is glossier, cooler, lighter (85% similar). MAC Hellebore (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Leather (P, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Punk Couture (P, $17.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Sapphire SIren Color Sensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, navy blue with strong, cool undertones and as atin finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, which applied decently, but I had a tough time getting it to stay perfectly in place as it had moderate slip. I think a lip liner or primer would really help this one, since it’s biggest issue is just evenness. The color wore well for five hours, left behind a stain, and was lightly hydrating. MAC Blue Beat (P, $21.00) is more muted, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Heroine (P, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). Maybelline Midnight Blue (P, $7.49) is darker (80% similar). Makeup Geek Wild Child (P, $12.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Midnight Blue Color Sensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a blackened blue with cool undertones and very fine shimmer with a satin finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that went on evenly for the most part, though it wasn’t perfect. Again, it’s a shade that I think would be helped by a lip liner or primer to fill in lip lines as well as help it adhere evenly. This shade lasted for five hours and left behind a bluish-purple stain. Kat Von D Poe (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Unspoken (P, $27.00) is less glossy, lighter (90% similar). Smashbox Deep (P, $21.00) is warmer, more muted (90% similar). MAC Blue Beat (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Time (LE, $18.00) is lighter (85% similar). Bite Beauty Squid Ink (P, $26.00) is cooler (80% similar). Kat Von D Echo (P, $20.00) is less glossy, lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Maybelline Sapphire Siren (P, $7.49) is lighter (80% similar). Urban Decay Time (P, $18.00) is less glossy, lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). Too Faced Who's Zoomin' Who (P, $21.00) is less glossy, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Pitch Black Color Sensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark black with a natural sheen. This is best applied with a lip brush over a lip liner or primer, because it just doesn’t go on evenly due to having a lot of slip–it slides around and gathers in lip lines. If you press your lips together, it moves and creates “lines.” This shade wore for four hours, feathered slightly on me, and further gravitated towards lip lines. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Kat Von D Slayer (P, $21.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). NYX Chambord (P, $6.00) is better quality, darker (90% similar). Smashbox Bankrolled (P, $21.00) is glossier, lighter (85% similar). MAC Hautecore (LE, $17.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Black Night (LE, $17.00) is warmer, brighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Nayeon (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Make Up For Ever #50 (P, $19.00) is better quality, darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
