Maybelline Touchable Taupe Color Sensational Lipstick Review & Swatches

Maybelline Touchable Taupe Color Sensational Lipstick

Maybelline Touchable Taupe Color Sensational Lipstick is one of several new nude shades of lipstick that Maybelline has introduced entitled “The Buffs”.

I’m going to take a deep breath and say it…this reminds me of poop. Or melted milk chocolate. Perhaps poop is a more accurate description though. Just keeping it real peeps.

I’m probably keeping some major makeup crime by saying I’m not a fond fan of taupe anything. Maybelline Touchable Taupe Color Sensational Lipstick has a creamy texture with a smooth, even application. It does have that floral, play-doh fragrance and flavor that all the Color Sensational Lipsticks sport.

Maple Kiss, Truffle Tease, and Touchable Taupe

The color wears for about four hours and feels quite creamy through that where. In terms of formula I’d say Touchable Taupe is one of the friendly shades in the Color Sensational Lipstick Collection. I find the collection is a bit inconsistent sometimes so you get hit and misses with the shade formulas but always, always you get plenty of color and pigment is always rich on these lipsticks. The same holds true for this shade as it nudes out lips on a single pass and can be built for even more drama.

This isn’t a shade I really love on myself but I can see it being very appealing to a more medium skin tone.

Facts is facts though the Buffs is probably the collection I’m liking most from the Color Sensational Collection. These shades have been very unique and I’m glad Maybelline is making them a permanent part of the collection.

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I tried Sin-Amon after another beauty blogger posted a pick looking lovely in it. It had the most awkward gray undertone on me which highlighted all my dark under eye glory! Not cute. I might be FINALLY ready to admit I am not one who can wear a nude lip with success. I just keep clinging to hope that I’ll one day find one!

      awww hugs! It’s just about finding the right one Sadie! Def don’t give up!

    Hi Poopy Face!! :). Kidding of course….actually, that color looks quite elegant on you. I would have pegged it as a high end brand.

  • Quinctia

    Nah, that’s not poop. Pennyroyal Lip Tar on its own, now that’s poop.

    Hey, Muse! This color, though it looks heinous in the tube, looks really nice on you. I know it would look horrid on me — I’m super pale & anemic. I bought Maple Kiss & I really like it; the formula is really nice.

    • Isabella Muse

      oh susan I really love maple kiss! thank you! I’m unsure if I like this, just a weird shade but thanks 🙂

  • Melody

    I’m annoyed but not surprised by the descriptions certain beauty bloggers make about these nudes.
    Touchable taupe does not remind me of poop -_- but a nice milk chocolate.
