Maybelline Red Around Town Color Whisper Lipstick is another of the new limited edition shades that are popping up in drugstores at the moment. Although I’ve been very impressed with two other shades in this collection, Coral Tease and Nude Night Out, I must say that Red Around Town isn’t all that much of a unique shade and looks similar to colors already available in the general catalog.
But if red is your color of choice I’m sure you’re going to like it!
Maybelline Red Around Town Color Whisper is what I would call a lighter tomato red. If you look good in reds like this you’re sure to love it. I personally prefer richer, warmer reds myself. The color runs sheerer and has more of a lighter textured compared to other Color Whispers I’ve tried. It has a more transparent look on lips but it builds easily for more opaque color.
I find the formula quite lovely. It’s soft, easy to apply, and leaves lips pleasantly moisturized through the wear. If you tried Color Whisper Lipstick before and were a little disappointed with it I’d suggest retrying with Red Around Town as the texture feels a little more weightless and even lighter than the original colors.
Red Around Town is quite close to other shades Maybelline already has so if you own many of the colors check in your stash and be sure you don’t already have a color like it.
It’s available now at drugstores for a limited time. I located it at Walgreens which is where I purchased it!
