Red for Me

Maybelline Red for Me Color Sensational Made for All Lipstick ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with cool, undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. The texture had a more powder-like, velvety texture that didn’t feel wet but skated across my lips comfortably; I even noticed that it went on more crisply along the edges than a typical matte red would for me. There was a smidgen of product that gathered in my deeper lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It wore well for over six hours, left a very strong stain behind, and was slightly drying after five hours of wear.

P.S. — The lipstick wasn’t secured in the base of the tube (I think it got so cold in transit, it froze and fell out!), so when I opened it up, the bullet fell onto the floor, which is why it looks… sad.

Formula Overview

$7.49/0.15 oz. - $49.93 Per Ounce

The ColorSensational formula is supposed to have "crisp and vibrant color" with a "sensuous finish" that is "comfortable" to wear. The "Made for All" range is specially designed to be "universally flattering" across 50 skin tones for each shade in the line. Most of the shades had semi-opaque to opaque color coverage that went on evenly and didn't settle into my lip lines. The consistency was lightweight, emollient without being slippery, and comfortable to wear, which ensured the color glided across my lips without tugging. The shades lasted for four to six hours on me with some of the deeper shades staining, while the formula felt lightly moisturizing. The matte finish has a more velvety feel and wasn't hydrating. It had a sweet, caramel-like scent to my nose but no discernible taste.

Ruby for Me

Maybelline Ruby for Me Color Sensational Made for All Lipstick ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, medium red with cool undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, and it built up easily to full coverage with another pass. The texture was lightweight, lightly creamy with a touch of tackiness, which did a good job at keeping it in place for longer and never felt heavy or thick on my lips. The color stayed on beautifully for over six hours, left a moderate stain behind, and was lightly hydrating over time.

Lovely reds. I can’t seem to not love and want all coolish red lipsticks I see. Strange, but true.
Do I need them? Hardly, but they are affordable, so maybe I’ll get them if they come to a counter near me.

These are beautiful, but I have plenty of reds already, so it’s a pass for me. I’m just super happy to see a drugstore brand releasing good quality products! 😀 And to see them being reviewed here on Temptalia, too. Very nice.

I bought both of these on a complete whim (CVSBucks & sale/coupon), and I absolutely love them! As someone who is very picky when it comes to reds, I was very surprised to find both to be so flattering. I personally didn’t have any issues with the matte one being drying over time, but I do remove/reapply frequently, particularly when wearing bolder shades.
