The Sultry Season: Maybelline Bit of Berry Lipstick
Maybelline Bit of Berry Lipstick ($8.29 for 0.15 oz.) is a beautiful plummy pink cream with rich, opaque color and a slightly glossy sheen. This is what I consider a drugstore gem, and it’s definitely one of the best Color Sensational lipsticks I’ve come across in texture and consistency, as well. It’s very creamy, which makes application a cinch, but it’s also incredibly pigmented and completely covers my lip freckle! I love that the color isn’t too cool, either. It lasts three to four hours on me, which is about average. I wish the lipstick smelled less synthetic and sweet, but otherwise, this one’s a keeper.
(You should be able to pick one up for less than $8, which is full retail price–drugstore.com has it for $6.22 at the moment.)
Is this the right berry for you? Would you wear it?
