White Gold

Maybelline White Gold Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lipstick ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, golden beige with warm, peachy undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which had even coverage on the lips but uneven texture–it seemed to bunch up i n places and appear almost crumbly at times. The texture was smooth, waxy, and it felt a lot more comfortable than it looked. This shade lasted for three hours on me with some color settling into lip lines over time, while the formula seemed to be neither drying nor hydrating.

The Matte Metallics is the newest finish in the Color Sensational range, and it’s supposed to pigmented, metallic, matte, and have a “comfortable creamy” feel. The formula had a smooth, waxy feel to me–it glided across the lips with ease but was thinner and did not lay down as much color in a single layer. Most of the shades were semi-opaque with some being slightly sheerer or more pigmented, but they were typically buildable. The lipstick was comfortable to wear and lasted between three and five hours on me with some shades being lightly hydrating and others were non-drying. There was a subtle, sweet scent but was significantly subdued compared to other Maybelline lip products.

Pure Gold

Maybelline Pure Gold Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lipstick ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a rich, molten gold with warm, coppery undertones and a metallic sheen. It had medium pigmentation that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and thin with a waxy feel that made it easy to glide the lipstick across my lips but did not seem to translate color as well. It could have applied more evenly, and the color gravitated toward my lip lines within two hours of wear. The lipstick lasted for closer to four hours on me and was non-drying.

Copper Spark

Maybelline Copper Spark Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lipstick ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, orange undertones and lighter gold, orange, and copper shimmer paired with a soft, metallic finish. It had good pigmentation–not quite opaque–that applied evenly across my lips. The texture was lightweight, thin but not clingy, and smooth so it never dragged on the lips. It wore well for five hours on me and was non-drying.

Copper Spark looks like a nice one! Not into anything quite this warm of an orange myself, but gorgeous for those who are!

Tbh, I would use White Gold as a cream highlight. It looks right up my alley for pigmentation and sheen. Also, Pure Gold still rated higher than I expected! For the price, it might be worth it since I have nothing like it.

Copper Spark looks quite good. I wonder if we’ll get these. I guess a run around the drugstore brands are in my near future.

I’ve never understood the whole “matte metallic” thing. Metal should be shiny. I’ve never found a product with that description that was flattering on.

I think there’s no glossiness – definitely a difference (to my eye) from a glossy finish vs. a “matte metallic” finish!

so happy copper spark got a good review ! i don’t have anything like it .

props to maybelline for offering an affordable matte metallic lipstick . i usually tend to stray from metallic lippies since most have a cream/satin finish .

hoping gunmetal, molten bronze, & serpentine also perform well .

Copper Spark is gorgeous, and the other two look like they’d be lovely toppers. I have dupes for Copper Spark and White Gold, but I might pick up Pure Gold at some point.
