Maybelline Purposeful Mauve Color Sensational Lipstick Review & Swatches

Maybelline Puposeful Mauve Color Sensational Lipcolor

Maybelline Purposeful Mauve Color Sensational Lipstick is one of several limited edition shades that launched with the Maybelline Queen of New York 100 Years Collection for Summer 2015.

I admit to having the worst love hate relationship with Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor in all of makeup history. I love the budget friendly price, I love the fact I can get it in 100’s of shades, I love the packaging, but…the formula isn’t quite as great as one would hope for!

Maybelline 100 Years Color Sensational Lipstick Swatches

Maybelline 100 Years Color Sensational Lipsticks

The new Maybelline Queen of New 100 Years Collection features five limited edition shades of Maybelline 100 Years Color Sensational Lipstick which I’m swatching up today! I have such a love hate relationship with the Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Collection. I can’t resist purchasing new shades because they are so pigmented and affordable but they also happen to be like chips, you can’t just eat one or in this case have one.

Maybelline Volum’ Express the Colossal Chaotic Lash Review

Maybelline Volum' Express the Colossal Chaotic Lash1

Maybelline Volum’ Express the Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara is the newest formula to join the Maybelline Colossal Mascara family. The Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara comes to us as part of Maybelline’s Summer 2015 Collection but will remain permanently available from my understanding.

Who approved the marketing ad on this mascara? It displays a model with spidery, clumpy lashes…eep! Not the look I go for when applying mascara but ummm ok maybe Maybelline wants to take a little “creative” liberties with the mascara marketing.

Maybelline the Colossal Chaotic Lash

I actually remember enjoy the original and first Maybelline Volum’ Express the Colossal Mascara but since that release there have been dozens of formulations and brush applicator changes that haven’t really caught my attention. I’m all about new and exciting products but the constant stream of “Miss Manga”, “the Colossal”, “Voluminous”, and other releases is not only confusing but so repetitive. As far as I’m concerned most times it’s just about a brush change and not so much a formula one.

Do we need another Colossal Mascara?

I say nay!

10 Budget Cream Blush Suggestions for Summer

budget cream blushes

Tis the season for cream blushes and I created a list of 10 Budget Cream Blush Suggestions for Summer that will give your cheeks the perfect flush of lightweight color without breaking your beauty budget!

I dunno what it is but when Summer rolls around I start going through my stash and setting aside all my cream blushes so I can wear them more often. Maybe it’s because they tend to be travel friendly and easy to apply without a ton of tools (just dab them on with your fingers and blend out!). Or maybe it’s because they are so lightweight and provide such natural color!

Whatever it is I tend to love wearing cream blush in the Summer.

How about you?
