OK, But Not Swoon-Worthy

I own the Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lippies in the colours 904 Vivid Rose, and 035 Pink Peony. The Vivid Rose is certainly "vivid" or shockingly bright, as I would call it, but it is less a rose and more a bold, coral fuchsia. The Pink Peony, on the other hand, looks pink in the tube, but when applied it looks more like a bright, rose-mauve. Not only were both colours much brighter than I had anticipated (or wanted), but also much glossier as well. I knew that they wouldn't be a matte finish, and would be more of a satin finish, but I was unprepared for the in-your-face va-va-voom factor of these lippies. The scent is lovely, smells like Play Dough to me, or maybe a bit like vanilla-scented crayons, so no complaints there. I would not repurchase these lip colours, as they are not what I personally look for in a lipstick, but I see no reason not to recommend them to others who are looking for a bold, glossy look.


If you want staying power with these, be sure to use a lip liner first, and then be prepared to reapply throughout the day. The colour transfers to coffee cups/glasses and other peoples' cheeks also, so be forewarned.

Ideal for

Those who want a bright, bold, glossy finish with good colour payoff, and who don't need it to last all day.

Amazing colour but doesnt last

I got this lipstick in the colour coral crush and I LOVE the colour of it.
I love how pigmented this lipstick is, just with one swipe of this on your lips gives you instant colour. Not only is the colour and pigment amazing but I also love how it glides on so smoothly. I would be buying more colours because of the reasons I stated above.

There are just certain things that I don't like about it but I suppose happens to most lipsticks that are not regarded as long lasting. All though it is a very pigmented lipstick I find that it does not last. I recently wore it to a wedding and I noticed that I had to keep reapplying through out the day, I also noticed that it would bleed and sometimes smudge outside of lips which I then had to apply concealer over because it was hard to take off my skin without ruing my foundation. But I do love the colour so I will be buying more but I just don't think I would wear to an event where you will be eating and drinking a lot.

Best lippie ever

I really loved this lipstick. I have it in 530 Fatal Red and its the perfect 'red lipstick'. It comes in an attractive casing. The lipstick has a pleasant slightly coconut-ey scent (this could be my imagination) and stays on without leaving your lips feeling dry. It is nourishing and very easy to apply.

Great lasting colour

This is a great product and well priced. I have this lipstick in 075 Let Me Pink &205 Nearly There. One is a nude pink and the other is a nude brown. The packaging is not very sturdy. The lip can come off easily, so I don't feel comfortable with this in my handbag. They have a slight harsh scent, which I don't like. But it doesn't bother me enough for me to stop using the lipsticks. The texture is creamy and easily applied. The wear is quite good and will last for a few hours without needing any touch ups.


The Nearly There colour I have has more shimmer in it than the other. I find it can leave behind some shimmer, which can be a bit gritty.

I don't regret buying it

I was feeling quite unsure about the colour I bought. The mandarin fizz 410 I'm pretty sure. I wanted to experiment with this brown/gold lipstick. But once I tried it on, with the hint of glitter on the lips with the colour it was gorgeous. It looks natural yet sophisicated and flirty. It's a great colour for fall/autumn or a night out with the girls. The smell of this lipstick is amazing! Smells like honey!

Best in Beauty 2014 - Pigmented lipsticks

When I first heard of the Maybelline New York Colour Sensational Lip Colour range and had a look at the vast array of shades separated into pinks, nudes/browns, plums/mauves, reds/corals I was transfixed. The shades were all eye catching and bright, not dull or ordinary. The problem I was facing was trying to decide what would be the first shade I would purchase. I am a huge fan of a nude natural mouth in the evening to pair with a smokey eye, so I decided to settle on the shade Pink Peony which is a natural, soft nude pink which is close to two shades lighter than my natural lip colour and Born With It. There are 48 captivating shades to choose from so there is something for everyone, and every look you are attempting to create.

The packaging of the lipstick is ultra stylish. Each of the four colour ranges are packaged the same but differ with the lid that corresponds to the group, so a pink lipstick will have a pink lid for easy identification which is convenient. The lipstick upon application is extremely hydrating on the lips, it has a very smooth formulation and the colour glides on very easily. The lipstick has a slightly moist finish that reminds me of MAC lustre finish lipsticks and adds a wonderful sheen to the lip area. It is interesting to know that the lipsticks in the range actually come in different finishes, some are quite frosty, some have a pearly finish such as born with it, and some have a cream finish like pink peony. For this reason I suggest trying the shades out before purchasing them. The pigmentation and colour pay off of these lipsticks are fantastic, the colours are very rich and intense which is due to the crystal-pure undiluted pigments which are used in these lipsticks. I cannot stress enough how wonderful the formulation of these lipsticks are, they are so creamy and smooth which is done by including nourishing honey nectar, emollient waxes and vitamin E in the lipsticks. They always left my lips feeling soft and moisturised, and throughout the day I did not feel my lips becoming dry.

Another bonus of these lipsticks were that they actually had great staying power which was surprising as they are very creamy in texture. I did not need to touch up nearly as much as I usually do, and I think it is the infused waxes in the lipstick which help make the lipstick long wearing. The lipstick does not feather or bleed into the lips over time, and is hydrating enough to be worn alone without the use of a lip balm underneath or a lip pencil. The lipstick bullet allows for easy, precise application and allows you to get into the inner corners of the mouth with the tip. With an affordable price tag of $16.95, amazing range of colours, a creamy formulation that sets itself aside from other lipsticks on the market, this is definitely a lipstick range which I will continue to purchase from.

Ideal for

Anyone - the vast amount of shades and colour ranges make these lipsticks accessible to anyone who is looking for the perfect pink, red, coral, plum, mauve or brown shade.

Incredible pigmentation

To be honest I did not expect much from this lipstick when I first bought it. I was on a quest to find a lipstick that would be as similar in colour to my all time favourite L'Oreal Color Riche in 371 Pink Passion ( unfortunately not available in Australia) as possible.
Maybelline Color Sensational in 910 SHOCKING CORAL does a pretty good job at it, being just slightly more pink but it is fine for me.
The packaging is very funky and elegant at the same time. The silver tube has got a lovely transparent vibrant coral cap. The lipstick smells very subtly of vanilla and something sweet in general. The fragrance of the product is not very overpowering.
What is the most surprising factor of the lipstick is its pigmentation! It is truly divine and one swipe on your lips is enough to create a full coverage look. The application is like a dream. The COLOR SENSATIONAL is easily applied straight from the bullet or using the lipbrush. I can't complain about the formula either as it is extremely creamy.
The finish is pretty shiny, not matte or satin at all. Very fresh and juicy. I feel very comfortable wearing this lipstick, not only doesn't it dry my lips out, it also stays put there for a very long time. The longevity of the product is definitely its asset too. In my opinion one doesn't need necessarily a lipliner with this lipstick. It does not feather, it does not "bleed". I really like it.
What is also very significant for me is the fact that it leaves a lovely satin on the lips and disappears evenly. I appreciate these factors very much. I have got several other picks in this category but will not be disappointed if Color Sensational wins BEST in BEAUTY 2014 in lipstick category. I highly recommend.

Best in Beauty 2014 - My Absolute Favourite!

The Color Sensational range is my absolute favourite and I have got almost every colour of this range. Great quality! The formula is reach and creamy. The colours are true to what you see and absolutely pigmented. The texture is soft, glides smoothly and keeps the lips moisturised. The colour doesn't feather and stays for a good amount of time.
Smells pleasant and the packaging is great.
I use this range regularly and it wont be wrong to say that these lipsticks are my all time favourite!

Best in Beauty 2014!

One of the best lipsticks I've tried up to date! This lipstick in the shade, 045 Pink Me Up is one of my favourite pinky-nude lipsticks that would complement any makeup look, either a natural or smokey look and its the versatility which I love about it! The formula is extremely creamy and smooth, doesn't cling to dry patches on my lips and applies so perfectly. The packaging is very classy too, a pinkish-purple cap and silver ballet which rivals many high-end lipstick packaging. It lasts fairly well on my lips, a few hours before needing to be reapplied. The scent is absolutely heavenly too, a beautiful sweet creamy vanilla scent that is mouthwatering and reminds me slightly of the Mac lipsticks! It is suffice to say that this lipstick is one of my holy grails, I can just whip it out whenever I need a little pick-me-up and it never fails to impress me! Amazing quality, affordable price and amazing an absolute godsend! Definitely deserves the Best in Beauty award!
