Maybelline ColorSensational High Shine Lip Glosses Review & Swatches
I have two more products from Maybelline's limited edition Fall 2013 Runway Collection, and they are the Color Sensational High Shine Lip Glosses in Lavender Lavish (top) and Raspberry Ablaze (bottom). I've actually wanted to try these glosses out for a while but there was never a shade that really interested me until now.
I really like the packaging for these glosses.. it's just very sleek and simple. They come with a slanted doe-foot applicator that's also pretty flexible, making for easy and precise application.
Here's Lavender Lavish swatched on the left, and Raspberry Ablaze on the right. Pretty, right? Lavender Lavish is a cool toned pink with a hint of purple, and Raspberry Ablaze is a rich berry color. Here's some lip swatches (sorry about the quality!):
I wasn't expecting these glosses to be so opaque so I was happily surprised when I tried them on. I personally don't like sheer glosses and I was excited to see such good color pay-off on the lips!
As for the formula, it's applies easily and is comfortable to wear. I can't stand sticky glosses, and these are only a little bit tacky at the most. Overall, I kind of love these. The only thing I dislike about them is that they have a generic lipgloss taste and smell that's kind of icky.. but otherwise I love 'em and would definitely recommend!
