My Experience with Maybelline Lust For Blush Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick:
“Lust for Blush” is part of Maybelline’s new “Creamy Matte” lipstick range introduced in Fall 2014. The range consists of 10 beautiful shades.
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a packaging similar to their regular “Colorsensational” lipsticks – silver tube but with a brown translucent cap. The cap fits tightly enough to carry it in your makeup bag without worrying. The shade name and number are printed on a sticker at the bottom of the tube, the color of the sticker being the same as the lipstick color.
Color: “Lust For Blush” is a beautiful cool-toned mauvy pink shade with a hint of purple. As you can see in the lip swatch, the purple undertones are more obvious outdoors and it looks more mauvy pink indoors. This is a very good everyday shade if you prefer cool-toned colors. If you are familiar with Maybelline’s Color Whisper range of lipsticks, there is a lipstick with the same name in that range. This matte “Lust for Blush” is the same color as the Color Whisper “Lust for Blush,” just in a matte formulation!
Texture: This is not a true matte lipstick, but a creamy matte. It is not drying like you might expect from a regular matte lipstick. This formula is creamy and glides easily on the lips without any patchiness. This feels very similar to the Rimmel Kate Moss matte lipstick formula.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is excellent. One swipe results in full opaque color.
Scent: The lipstick smells like sweet candy, but it is not very strong and you will not smell it after application.
Finish: The finish looks velvety matte with one coat, but if you add additional coats, you can see a very slight sheen. Being a semi-matte finish, it does accentuate dry spots on the lips. It is best to exfoliate your lips before you use this. The lipstick is not drying on the lips but neither does it add any moisture to the lips. So after wearing it for over 5 hours, I feel the need to apply a lip balm. It is better to apply a thin lip balm on your lips before applying this lipstick.
Longevity: Lasts for over 5 hours. There is no bleeding or feathering. The lipstick fades evenly without looking patchy. Being a creamy matte formulation, it does transfer slightly, especially if you have more than one layer on.

Cons of Maybelline Lust For Blush Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick:
