Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick

13. avgust 2013

Hello lovelies! Today I'll be talking about the Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick. Yes yes, I know everyone and their mother blogged about these lipsticks already, but hey... one more review surely can't hurt anyone, right? :) 

I really didn't fell in the whole 'lipstick-balm' craze that was going on with Revlon Lip Butters, Maybelline Baby lips, these lipsticks and all other similar products. But about a month ago I was browsing around a drugstore (which is never a good thing) and decided to swatch these lipsticks to see what colors are available and how they actually show up on the skin. There were quite a few shades I liked but I decided to take 430 Coral Ambition home with me. :)

I have to say I really like this lipstick (if you can call it that). I love the packaging, though I have no idea why the packaging in our stores doesn't have 'Whisper' written on it... The scent of the lipstick is really nice, can't really define it but it seems sweet to me. It feels really nice and moisturizing on the lips (as is expected of it) and it's not too waxy. Of course the staying power is not great. I would say 1-2 hours and that's if you're not drinking and eating. But I much prefer a lipstick or any other lip product to feel nice and moisturizing on the lips and needs frequent reapplying, rather than having a long lasting one that feels drying and uncomfortable.

I don't know about the other shades, but this shade doesn't look coral on my lips, it looks pink. Now, I like pink on my lips so I'm totally fine with that, but for someone who would buy this lipstick because of the coral color, this would probably be a disappointment.

The only down side of this lipstick is the price. I think that almost 10 € (I paid 9,90 € in Muller) is way too much for a lipstick-balm hybrid. Having said that, I do like it a lot and I love using it now, in the summer when I don't like to wear heavier, bolder lipsticks. I can see myself reaching for this item quite a lot, since you don't have to be careful with application and even though it's not a real lipstick, it still gives your lips some nice color and a lovely subtle shine.

Have you tried this lipstick? Which shade(s) do you own? :)

  1. Imam točno ta odtenek in mi je super, So pa cenejše v DM-u kot v Muellerju, v Dmu so malo manj kot 8€, bom pa definitivno kakšen odtenek še kupila.

  2. Nisem še poskusila teh, imam pa točno ta odtenek na WL in zdaj ko ga vidim pri tebi mi je še bolj všeč, res lepa barva :) So pa tudi po mojem cene teh zadev pretirane, že 10eur za Revlonov lip butter mi je bilo preveč... Za šminko mi ni problem dat, samo za nekaj kar je basically obarvan balzam za ustnice je pa malo drago :P

  3. @aydii - Hvala za ta podatek, bom skočila v DM, če me bodo še kakšni drugi odtenki premamili. :)

    @Lux - Jp, za šminko dam tudi jaz več denarja, to je pa res obarvan balzam in čeprav je super zadeva, bi lahko malo znižali ceno (no, saj v Ameriki je veliko ceneje). :D

  4. Imam identičan ruž :))

    Divan mi je, baš kao balzam za usta.

    I tebi super, super stoji :)

  5. Jaz se telih izogibam ravno zaradi cene. Res bi jih lahko malo pocenili... :D

  6. @Nuša - Jp, jst tut mislm, da so mal precenjeni te hibridi. :)

    @Sandra - Za šminko mi ni problem dat 10 € in več, za obarvan balzam pa malo težje...
