My Experience with Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick –Berry Ready:

The Color Whisper lipstick range from Maybelline comes with a unique gel-like formula, which provides color and hydrates the lips. It is supposed to be a highly pigmented balm with a glossy tint, but not all colors in this range have good pigmentation. Some of the lighter colors will apply like a sheer lip balm, while some of the darker colors are so pigmented that you will not be able to believe this is a hybrid lip product. Berry Ready falls in the latter category.

The lipstick comes in a silver tube with a translucent, color coordinated cap. The cap fit snugly enough to carry it in your bag without worrying. The shade name and number are printed on a sticker at the bottom of the tube. This lipstick tube and the lipstick bullet are slightly thinner than a regular lipstick, though the same height. The quantity you get is only 3g as compared to the usual 4 gm.

A beautiful pinkish-red berry shade that would look great for all skin tones. If you are not comfortable sporting a full-fledged berry shade, this can be the perfect choice with the hints of pink and red. If you find it too dark for day wear, you can wear it as a stain, which also looks so very pretty.

I was just blown away by the pigmentation of this particular shade. A single swipe is enough to produce a color opaque enough to cover pigmented lips. It is definitely a full coverage lip balm/lipstick!

The lipstick smells like sweet candy. I love the smell!


This lipstick has a gel-like texture. It glides easily on the lips and feels quite comfortable. There is no greasy or sticky feel. It is quite moisturizing as well. My dry lips do not need an additional lip balm when I use this. These feel much lighter on the lips when compared to the Revlon lip butters.


The finish is slightly glossy. The color and the texture is such that it is quite forgiving on chapped lips too! It does not accentuate dry spots on the lips.

Lasts for over 4 hours, after which it fades slightly. Because it is so creamy, it transfers a bit. Since the color is so pigmented, you will be left with a tint even after a heavy meal.

    That’s a lovely shade! Since this line is not available in India, can anyone suggest a dupe for this? Preferably in drugstore budget?
