Budget Shopping Weeks: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor #065 Hooked on Pink
I love lipsticks and my favorite lip color is red, but sometimes I like to experiment with color. I need to be careful because I’m lucky enough to be able to very all bright colors easily, but pinks and nudes are my instant problem. Unless I’m wearing a make up with well-defined eyes, I feel like my lips are lost on my face. I prefer to experiment with budget lipsticks and I bought few from Maybelline Color Sensational.
I’ve tried few shades and I can say that this lipstick:
+ applies nicely;
+ has good coverage;
+ creamy feeling and creamy finish;
+ lasts for a long time: 5-6 hours (although it’s not long-lasting by definition and it’ll stay on your cup also);
— it looks bad on dry lips;
#065 Hooked on Pink — creamy pink, looks like dusty rose, but brighter, still it’s a kind of neutral. It has creamy finish, a bit wet, no shimmer. It look not so bold when I swatched it on my hand, but one layer is enough for me (I’ve used two for photos).
Availability: your local drugstore.
Final Thoughts: nice creamy lipstick, good everyday shade, but won’t look good on dry lips. Still it’s a good choice from low priced lipsticks and there’s big variety of shades (54 in total). I’ve just thought that Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color SPF 12 #11 Rose Blossom is very alike in color in texture, but Bobbi Brown is more neutral in color, real dusty rose, it has somehow better coverage (but not dramatically) and SPF.
