Maybelline Coral Cocktail Color Sensational Lipstick is yet of the new limited edition Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor shades that launched with the Maybelline 100 Years Queen of New York Collection for Summer 2015.
Let’s take a peek!
I find myself cheating a lot with these lip shades! If you’re read some of my other reviews on these shades you know by now I’m not really impressed with the formula so I def have been cheating and applying gloss on top of them so they look and feel better! Maybelline Coral Cocktail Color Sensational Lipstick is no exception to this rule as the shade has a tendency to settle in my natural lip lines and look crazy dry and less than smooth. This one does tug a little during application and I wish it had more of a creamier texture! Below I’m wearing it with gloss and it looks amazing but without, well, it isn’t particularly pretty.

I’m not terribly keen on the shade either. It looks a little chalky on me without gloss as it is a cooler coral (I love more peachy warmer corals myself). The color is a bit more intense and neon-like with gloss on top of it but without it looks duller and drier. It’s a nice Summer shade just not one I’d typically pick for myself so combine the poor formula with a color I don’t really love and you have disaster.

If you are picking up a few of these new Color Sensational Lipsticks I’d recommend a skip on Coral Cocktail as it proves the worst of the shades I’ve tried thus far!
