I bought this lipstick today in the colour 'fatal red' or 530 it is a darker red than the 'are you ready" colour. It doesn't have many pink or purple tones in it which a lot of red lipsticks tend to have, the colour is vibrant when applied to the lips at least two coats to get the full saturation. It has a creamy texture and leaves a shine on the lips, it is easy to apply because of it's creamy consistency and glides across the lips softly. It also acts as a moisturiser for the lips which is really appealing to me in a lipstick. The only fault that i could find in this product is the fragrance, i'm not a huge fan of beauty products with scents but that is my personal preference, it's not an awful smell or anything it's just not ideal for me.

After trailing this product in beige rose the only thing I am disappointed with is that I didn't buy more colours. ! I love it , it costs my lips in a glossy shine and this nude colour is just beautiful !!! I feel glamorous with out any bold colours ! It's very rich and creamy and so easy to apply and glide over lips . I love the case and for the affordable price it's not cheap looking! It also has a beautifully pleasant smell which I was very impressed with , most lipsticks are full and boring normally ! Overall a great buy !!!

A good lipstick
The shade of lipstick that I have is called "Red Revival"; given to me by a friend. I would class it as a deep blue red and it is perfect for me as I have fair to medium complexion and my hair is dark.
The lipstick casing is silver and its rectangular lid, a transparent red brown colour. The lipstick smells faintly of vanilla which I don't notice when it is on.
This lipstick is very pigmented and only a couple of swipes across the lips is required before a deep opaque red is deposited on the lips. This lipstick colour is so "blue" that I used another white pearlised lipstick over it to lighten the shade a bit. Otherwise, this lipstick applies smoothly and leaves a satin-like finish.
Because the lipstick is so satin-like, I honestly thought that the majority of lip colour would come off once I had a drink but I was pleasantly surprised. I drank a cup of Milo, ate a Fortune cookie and when I arrived home was surprised to find my lips still significantly coloured.
Removal of the lipstick was easy too with some creamy makeup remover. This is a big plus for me because I'm not fond of lipsticks that stain the lips and are difficult to remove.
I'm quite happy with the performance of this lipstick. I look good wearing it and it matches one of my red blouses perfectly. So overall, I award it a 4 Star Rating.

Good but not great
I really wanted to love this lipstick, it's pretty good priced, colour is super pigmented and stays on considerably long (with the help of lipliner and blotting). I got the colour in "Are you Red-dy", it's a bright true red hue and is my first lippie other than my blue undertone red lipsticks. To sum up, that's two stars for it.
What I didn't like was that, firstly it settles in the fine lines of my lips, the more I touch up or reapply the more it settles into it. Even when I blot, the colour still settles into the cracks let alone my lips are moisturised which does not help much.
Secondly, it's drying on my lips. When I first used it, the finish was very nice and full of colour, few hours later my lips were very dry and peeling. I did apply lipblam prior and after but to no avail. With dry peeling lips, reapplying lipstick is not a good look! I didn't want to waste it so I ended up using another lipstick underneath and apply this one on top to act as a barrier. Now to wear this, I would need two lipsticks and a lipbalm and would need them for touch ups throughout the day!
Most likely won't purchase this again even though the range have some impressive colours.

Fifth Avenue Fuschia
I have this in Fifth Avenue Fuschia, a brilliant bright fuschia colour (as the name suggests) that is wearable during the day and night. Lasts for ages with amazing pigmentation, but of course eating/drinking will wear it off (that's just a given for basically any lip product haha). Doesn't really feather and leaves a nice stain on the lips. There is a bit of a vanilla-type fragrance to it, so if you're not into fragrances then it might put you off a bit. :)

I only have this in one shade but i will definitely be getting more. I have 045 Pink me up, it's a very nice everyday shade and very close to my natural lip colour. I was looking for something darker but i'm not disappointed with this colour, i'm waiting for a sale to get more shades, right now i have my eye on Hook Me Up. Great colour payoff and although it doesn't last all night, it's still a reasonable amount of time before reapplying is needed.

One of the best lipsticks
Great lipstick better then a lot of the more expensive brands! I have about 12 of these now in nearly every shade, i'd probably say I am addicted and it's like they have a hint of vanilla scent about them and I love it so much! Their colour pigment and their long lasting effect and not having to touch up almost at all has got me buying 2+ every week! Their red revival is my favourite I suggest everyone that reads this review should buy it!

Holy shimmer me timbers!
What did I get? - I've got the 205 Nearly There which is one of the nudes in a darker shimmery brown.
My take on initial application: This is definitely a shimmer with initial high pigment that for me, wasn't what I was expecting the first time I put it on my lips! The consistency is almost balm-like, also what I was not expecting, and your lips feel super satiny but not sticky. Awesome. It is slightly perfumed but not overpoweringly so. On its own, this lippy lasts quite well.
Lasting impression: Pretty darned impressed for a Maybelline lippie.

I only bought this because it was on special - Maybelline sweet Bordeaux 380 - I was not too sure about it because of the colour it was. But boy was I proven wrong!!! even though the colour is nothing fancy to look at once applied it was an amazing red, I love this lipstick not only does it smell amazing and go on smoothly you only need 2 coats and have wet luscious looking lips. I have had so many people comment on how good the colour is. LOVE THIS COLOUR!! LOVE IT!!!!

Colour is pretty vibrant and feels pretty smooth on the lips. None of the nude shades really stood out to me and didn't seem that great on me but the other colours (especially the pinks) are really pretty. Packaging is quite sleek and small so it's easy to carry around for touch ups. Product is unscented but has this strange smell which I can't seem to identify but it isn't horrible or anything.
