Almond Rose

Maybelline Almond Rose Color Sensational Inti-Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a slightly brighter, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had excellent coverage with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that glided across the lips comfortably. It wore well for four and a half hours with a bit of color that had settled into my deeper lip lines, but overall, it was lightly hydrating and didn’t emphasize the texture of my lips like some of the other shades in the Inti-Matte range did.

Maybelline’s Color Sensational line does have a sweet, perfume-y scent to them, though it did not seem quite as overwhelming in the Inti-Matte range compared to past launches to my nose.

Beige Babe

Maybelline Beige Babe Color Sensational Inti-Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium pinky-coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that did not apply particularly well; despite the texture feeling creamy and gliding across the lips without tugging, the color separated and caught on every flake and imperfection I had. It wore poorly, as the color moved around, migrated into lip lines, and turned patchy within two hours of wear. I think the only way to make it workable is mixed with a little bit of balm (which doesn’t help the settling but improves the drier appearance) or use over a lip liner.

Hot Sand

Maybelline Hot Sand Color Sensational Inti-Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm, pale orange undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation, but the consistency was chalk-like in that it appeared drier, almost crumbly on the lips and separated at my lip lines (like a matte, liquid lipstick might after drying down), despite the actual texture feeling very creamy with moderate slip. I think that if worn with a liner, it would look more flattering on. It lasted for three hours on me, but it had severely separated over time. The formula was lightly hydrating overall.

Best Lipsticks | Holiday 2016 Gift Guide

It’s that time of the year again:  holiday gift guides aplenty!  This year, I’ve broken out my gift guides into best of selections for blush, eyeshadow, highlighter, lipstick, lipgloss, palettes, and brushes.  These guides feature permanent formulas so that they can be useful anytime during the holiday season or even into next year.  For limited edition holiday products, you can check out our list of the top 50 highest-rated holiday products, which updates as I post more reviews for holiday products. Here’s a look at the best lipstick formulas I’ve tried:

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is supposed to have “bold, creamy color” with “extreme moisture, soft texture, and creamy wear.” The majority of the range is very pigmented–typically opaque with one pass–with a few shades being semi-opaque but usually buildable. The majority of the shades I’ve tested have been lightly hydrating to non-drying and fairly comfortable to wear for the long-haul. They wear longer than average, from four to eight hours, depending on the intensity and propensity of the shade to stain. The range is rather extensive with over 30 shades, so you may find our top 15 best Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks list useful. Some of my favorite shades are: Pickled Ginger, Kale, Sour Cherry, and Spritzer.

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.
