Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick (Summer 2013 Shades) Review & Swatches
Good news Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick fans! Nude Shimmer, Ravishing Pink, I Crave Coral and Sienna Sands are four new, limited edition Summer 2013 shades of Color Whisper Lipstick available at drugstores now (if you can find them GRRrrrRrrr).
Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick is possibly my favorite drugstore lippie at the moment so I was excited to see these new shades pop up.
Take a look!
Maybelline introduce Color Whisper Lipstick in 20 shades this past Spring and they are now popping up all over drugstores. Color Whisper is sort of a nod to Revlon’s popular range of Lip Butters and L’Oreal’s Caresse Sticks.
Sienna Sands, Ravishing Pink, I Crave Coral
These have a hybrid formula that’s part balm, part gloss, and part lipstick so the product pretty much covers all the bases we could possibly want in a lipstick. They offer fairly opaque fuller coverage and the formula is a little lighter in texture to Revlon’s Lip Butters making them a lovely lightweight balm-type lipstick. They don’t have any real glossiness or shine but they do have a high sheen finish. I find them quite moisturizing on my lips with a water based formula that give lips a cool, refreshing feel. They wear a good solid three to four hours without fading away or losing their hydrating factor.
Unfortunately, the Summer shades aren’t as exciting as I had hoped for as they lean towards more nude, subtle colors.
I Crave Coral is a very wearable orange based coral and my favorite of the three shades I purchased. I think if you really want to wear orange shades but simply can’t pull them off this is a nice shade to do so as it has a subtle orange undertone but doesn’t overwhelm or look too bold.
Sienna Sands is a sandy shade of caramel beige. This is a nice shade for a nude lip look and won’t take away from a vibrant eye look.
Ravishing Pink is a dusky lighter mod pink. This will be a nice MLBB (my lips but better) lip shade for girls (or guys) with less pigmented lips.
These four shades are available in a special Maybelline Summer 2013 display which also features two MORE Color Tattoo Eyeshadows in LE shades.
I located the display at CVS but they seem to be popping up everywhere lately.
Anyone try these?
