Maybelline has long been a go-to brand for me when seeking out drugstore lipsticks. I have 7 of the 10 shades to share with you today & I’ve been wearing them for months. When they first came out there was an intense craze (myself included) & I picked up the shades I thought were either most original or that I figured I’d wear the most. Craving Coral, Ravishing Rose, & Nude Embrace were the shades that didn’t make the cut. Without further interruption I give you my thoughts & swatches of the Maybelline Creamy Matte Sensational Lip Colors in Daringly Nude, Touch of Spice, Lust for Blush, Faint for Fuchsia, Mesmerizing Magenta, Siren in Scarlet, & Divine Wine.
Across the board the formula is pretty similar on these shades. The formula is creamy, doesn’t tug, & isn’t overly hydrating. While I wouldn’t call these shades hydrating at all I do think the “creamy” aspect is definitely there. When my lips are super dry I can top these shades with a gloss or balm without them looking odd which is also nice. On their own these shades last quite a decent amount of time- I can manage 4-5 hours which is surprising for something not marketed as long-wearing.

As I’m writing this I’m disappointed I didn’t do full face lip swatches so you could really see these shade on. Would you be interested in seeing these in a video maybe? Either way I’m really loving these shades & since they’re permanent I’m glad. Picking a favorite here is pretty tough but I have been reaching for Lust for Blush & Touch of Spice most in these colder months. I have a feeling when the weather warms up I’ll be all over those brighter shades though!
Have you checked out these beloved & raved about drugstore shades? Any particular color catch you eye? What is your favorite?
