Hope you are having a great week. I have been extremely busy with work and family, but now I am back and will be posting reviews and hopefully some tutorials shortly. Today, I will be reviewing one of my very first lipsticks from Maybelline’s Colorsensational range.
I personally love “Colorsensational” lipsticks. They are fantastic in texture and perfect for everyday office wear. The shade range is huge and I mean really huge ranging from nudes, browns, pinks, to plums, etc. The one I will be reviewing today is called “Nearly There.”
I bought this lipstick thinking it would be a perfect n*de lipstick for me. Also, when the SA swatched on me, it looked gorgeous with all that frosty glossy finish, but the moment I tried it on, I was highly disappointed! This shade does not suit me at all and in fact makes me appear sick and weird. The frost finish of the lipstick makes my lip appear ghastly white. I think I picked up the wrong shade for my NC42 skin tone because my sister has the same lipstick and it looks gorgeous on her, but she is like 10 shades lighter than me. So, I think this shade will suit fair skin tones only and will wash out medium to dusky skin tones.
The shade overall is pretty and has frosty finish. The pigmentation is good and stays on me for about 2 to 3 hours. I usually top it off with a lip gloss to make this work for me. Also because of the frosty finish, it instantly makes lips appear plump and fuller.
Pros of Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Nearly There:
- The shade is a pretty n*de color and perfect for daily wear or office wear.
- Pigmentation is good.
- Stays on about 3 hours.
- Easily available at all Maybelline counters and online.
- Does not bleed or settle in fine lines.
- Makes lips appear fuller and plump.
Cons of Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Nearly There:
- The shade is only suitable for fairer skin tones and will wash out medium to dusky girls.
- Not everyone likes frosty finishes, this is purely personal preference.
3.5/5 (purely because the shade did not suit me).
Do I Recommend Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Nearly There?
Yes, if you are fair and want a good everyday wear lipstick and if you like frosty finishes. I do not recommend this lipstick to dusky girls as it will wash them out.
Hope this review was helpful to you all. Until tomorrow, take care and stay beautiful.
PS:- Sorry for no LOTD/FOTD as camera was not catching the color at all and making my lips appear ghastly frosted.
