Maybelline Raw Reveal Color Sensational the Buffs Lipstick is a new limited edition shade that’s available with the Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Collection.
Raw Reveal is an iffy little purchase for me as this is truly a nude shade but it has its uses.
There is no doubt in my mind a lot of women and men can rock Maybelline Raw Reveal the Buffs Lipstick like a superstar. I am however, not one of those lucky people. A few years ago MAC released a collection with a similar shade the name of which escapes me at the moment but it was massively popular at the time.
As you know shades like I put on my zombie aka rigor mortis lip shade list. They just look deathly on me! Or if I’m honest I kinda look like I have chapped lips with it on.
This is a lighter tan beige that completely nudes my lips out. It feels kinda like it has a hint to mauve to it when I apply it but that could be the natural pigment of my lips that’s morphing the color. The texture is quite creamy and surprisingly the shade doesn’t settle into the natural lines of my lips and leaves behind a smooth, even finish. It has a light kinda play doh-ish scent and flavor. I noticed that the Buffs Lipsticks vary in the fragrance/flavor department on my testing. Some of the permanent shades I tried barely had any fragrance where as these new LE def have it!
This isn’t a completely useless shade. You can use it to prime lips and it’ll make a particularly good base for lipsticks as it nudes your lips out completely so it’ll allow darker shades to look more intense and vibrant. That’s how I’m using it!
Of course, if you can rock the shade, obviously you won’t need to use it as a lip primer 🙂
It’s available now but only for a limited time!
How’s it look on you?
