The Spring Season: Cooler Pinks Lipstick Wrap-up

For our next visual recap of the Spring Season, we’re showcasing all of the cooler-toned pink lipsticks.

  • #1 (Benefit Jing-a-ling) is like a lighter, cooler version of #8 (Urban Decay Rush).
  • #6 (MAC Hue) and #7 (Maybelline Born With It) seem awfully similar, with Hue not quite as pink.  #5 (MAC Angel) is pinker than both the Born With It and Hue.

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?
