Have you experienced the joys of Maybelline Salsa Sun yet? I’m so loving on this release. Maybelline did a really nice job with the colors and it really has a great Summer-y vibe. The collection is available for a limited time and consists of a color and a lip release. My first time around with the collection I ended up having to visit a few stores to locate it as the displays were pretty picked over but I’m noticing drugstores have started restocking and putting out new displays, so if you want it, go get it now.
A few days ago I showed you a few of the Maybelline Salsa Sun Lipglosses and today I hauled out the limited edition Sensational Lipsticks released with this collection.
A release of limited edition Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks shades in bright, Summer-y shades.
I think there are four LE shades which this collection and I must say they are truly lovely. Formula aside it’s the colors that really grabbed my attention.
Each lipstick is super pigmented and comes in incredibly bright colors that are ideal for Summer. The Maybelline Salsa Sun Collection leans towards more of an earthy eye look featuring shades of brown and green but for the lipsticks they went with brighter shades of orange and fuchsia which lend a beautiful contrast to the completed look.
I purchased three shades one of which I absolutely adore called Spicy Cinnamon which has a cream finish (normally not a lover of cream but this is lovely with clear gloss). The shade is a warm brown rose shade that’s will be ideal for Fall as well as the warmth of Summer.
I also got Southwest Sizzle which is a bright orange-y red and goes well with the Salsa Sun Lipgloss.
And finally Fiesta Flush which is a perfectly wearable shade of fuchsia.
The lipsticks are all very pigmented with a cream finish.
Sadly, these sport the typical Sensational Lipstick formula which doesn’t quite sit on my lips comfortable. I can’t really describe it but the lipstick just doesn’t feel nice on nor does it apply as nicely as other lipsticks I own as the glide isn’t as hydrating.
- Anyone looking for some bolder shades of color for their Summer lipstick wardrobe!
- Anyone who loves a pigmented lipstick!
- Anyone who wants a cheap lipstick ($8.99 or less when on sale)!
- Anyone who wants a hydrating formula that glides on and wears comfortably!
Overlooking the crummy formula, I must say the colors are thrilling and just gorgeous plus they all seem very wearable even though the shades are bolder.
I think these are well worth a look at if you’re looking to spice up your Summer lipstick routine, the shades just seem really special to me.
Just wish the formula was a bit more moisturizing and pleasant to wear…oh, and tasty, no likey the bitter taste!
