Have you been on the search for the perfect red lipstick? Personally…I want all the red lipsticks I can find that actually wear well & look great against my skintone. I have neon reds & sheer reds aplenty, staining reds & vampy reds galore…shimmery reds….not so many! But I am always on the hunt for one that “works” without being tacky looking on me. Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Ruby Star fits the bill, check it out! [Read more…]
With my lip/hand swatches of the new Maybelline Limited Edition Fall 2013 purple lip colors came a promise for comparisons! Today I’m showing you a few side by sides plus my quick purple ombre above.
When it comes to colors I really dig purple. I love greens as a very close second but purple is my jam. It is so exciting that drugstore brands like Maybelline are jumping on the vibrant & super bold purple lip trend & I was sucked into buying 3 products from their Fall 2013 display. There are other glosses & 2 more lipsticks but they either looked to close to shades I know I have multiples of or just weren’t for me. Keep reading to see my thoughts & lip swatches! [Read more…]
If you have seen my other reviews for the Maybelline Vivids (I’ve swatched them all! Part One is here & Part Two is here!) you may be telling me, “Stephanie? Why do you possibly need more Vivids?” & to this I say, “I NEED THEM ALL!” Because I really do feel that way. I simply need every single one. When I heard they were releasing 3 limited edition shades it should be no surprise I needed them in my collection. But I was scared….after many weeks of searching they just weren’t showing up! But…then they did so here they are! [Read more…]
So if you saw my first post then you knew to expect me to pick up the last 3 shades in the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid line. I’m obsessed with “pop of color” lips (especially for spring & summer) so it isn’t a suprise I ended up buying all 10 shades to have the variety & pigmentation with the drugstore price tag! & without further babble…here are the last 3 shades!

When it comes to Spring, I like to rock me some bright lips. Neon lips, off color lips, ridiculously pigmented lips. In the past, I’ve only stumbled onto a handful of drugstore shades that fit into this category. Maybelline Vivids are something I’ve been obsessing over since I first read the press release & I’m so incredibly excited to show them to you today!
So right out of the gate let me tell you I adore these lipsticks. I really want to own them all, but my CVS basically refuses to restock the ones I don’t have. I want #12 like no one’s business but they have one damaged, mangled one left. BOO! But overall, this is definitely one of my favorite lines from the drugstore, especially for around $5. [Read more…]
