Today is World AIDS Day. A day that was started…
I finally found one of the Maybelline Fall 2013 limited edition Color Sensational lipsticks! It may take a little longer for LE stuff to get to Canada, but I always manage to find what I want in the end. Come to mama, Lavender Voltage (1000)! Totally cool rap name, am I right?
I don’t typically wear Maybelline lipsticks, except for that period of time I was crushing hard on their Vivids line… I digress… let’s see how this Color Sensational formula is!
Formula: extremely creamy and moisturizing. It stays really moist all day too plus it smells a bit like cocoa butter/suntan lotion. Downside is the application is a bit sheer and streaky, but I managed to even it out.
Pigmentation: sheer, buildable color. Not extremely pigmented, but a nice hint to start.
Wear time: 3-4 hours. Because of the sheer and slippery nature of the lipstick, it doesn’t stay put all day.
Final verdict? I love the color and moisture of this lipstick. It’s like the color if Violetta and Heroine had a baby! That being said, I’d stick to the Mac lippies this time around.
These lipsticks are few and far between… ’tis the nature of this limited edition world we live in. Other Maybelline Fall 2013 limited edition lippies that I didn’t manage to find include Violet Intrigue and Midnight Plum. Have you found these anywhere?
