Maybelline Born With It Lipstick

The Spring Season: Maybelline Born With It Lipstick

Maybelline Born With It ColorSensational Lipcolor ($7.49) is a softened pink-nude with soft champagne shimmer and a creamy finish. It has a light sheen, more sheen than glossiness, and it has decent color coverage–though not quite opaque (you can still see my little lip freckle/beauty mark!). This is probably one of my favorite shades of Maybelline lipstick I’ve tried so far! What are your favorite Maybelline shades?

MAC Touch Lipstick

The Spring Season: MAC Touch Lipstick

MAC Touch Lipstick ($14.00) is an creamy, full color coverage browned nude with a glossy sheen. This is one of my favorite browns to wear, because on me, it’s just right–I find that darker browns can look odd on me–it has just enough warmth and lightness to make it work as a darkened nude.  Touch has a lustre finish, but it’s the best kind of lustre–all of that beautiful shine with creamy color.  Like other MAC lipsticks, it is vanilla-scented and wears for about four hours before fading.

Urban Decay Indecent Lipstick

The Spring Season: Urban Decay Indecent Lipstick

Urban Decay Lipstick Indecent ($22.00) is a semi-sheer, ultra glossy/shiny softened orange-coral with subtle champagne-gold shimmer. It’s so sheer and glossy that it almost looks more like a thin gloss than a lipstick. Urban Decay lipsticks have kind of a burnt caramel sugar scent and they don’t taste like much to me, though some with more refined tastebuds have noted it has an off-taste. They are moisturizing and last about four hours on my lips, though sheerer shades like Indecent seem to wear off a little faster than more opaque or heavier shades do!

More Urban Decay Lipstick fun!

MAC Creme d'Nude Lipstick

The Spring Season: MAC Creme d’Nude Lipstick

MAC Creme d’Nude Lipstick ($14.00) is a creamy, nearly opaque pink-toned fleshy nude. It’s warm enough to keep it from being too corpse-ish of a nude, and it’s definitely a popular favorite amongst Temptalia readers! (I wasn’t going to include it, because my store was out when I did my buying for Spring Season lipsticks, but due to the demand… I pestered my store until they found one for me!) It’s a cremesheen finish, so it has a creamier look without being too thick or having a lot of slip. Like most MAC lipsticks, it is vanilla-scented and wears for a few hours before fading.

Guerlain Galia Rouge G Lipstick
Guerlain Galia Rouge G Lipstick

The Spring Season: Guerlain Galia Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Galia (#03) Rouge G Lipstick is a pinked-beige nude lipstick with a creamy, lightly glossy look. It has no real detectable shimmer, but it has this soft sheen that makes it look like you’re almost wearing a gloss but not quite. I found this to be a hard-to-describe color, just because it’s not quite a nude yet it’s not beige nor pink nor peach. It’s like a triple threat combo!  Rouge G lipsticks are soft, creamy, and wear beautifully with a solid four to six hours of wear and always feel lightweight while giving full color coverage.  They are, however, scented with a sweet strawberry-ish scent (more subtle than the typical Guerlain lip color scent, but it’s the same).

Benefit Zone Out Lipgloss

The Spring Season: Benefit Zone Out Lipgloss

 

Benefit Cosmetics Lip Gloss Zone Out ($18.00) is an ultra sheer shimmering champagne with a touch of gold. This is really a gloss that’s best to enhance another lipstick or worn alone for a quick, everyday kind of lip that just sparkles a bit. It doesn’t actually add or change-up my normal lip color, so that’s why I like to pair it with a flatter lipstick to enhance the undertones of my lip color instead. Benefit Lip Gloss is a non-sticky, thinner gloss with a springy doe-foot applicator and no real noticeable scent from what I could sniff out!
