Makeup Monday – Maybelline Color Sensational

Ever since I posted in my “Favorite Things” tag that I loved Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick, I’ve been getting alot of traffic from people looking for swatches.  So today I bring you pictures and opinions of the colors I own from this line.  Hope this helps those of you looking more information on these!

Here I have lipsticks on the left, and glosses on the right as follows:

1. Plaza Pink   2. Hooked on Pink   3. Nearly There   4. Sugared Honey  5. Yummy Plummy

1. Plumtastic  2. Sugared Honey


Plaza Pink is a soft, almost nude creme pink.  It works well as an everyday or office color, and it won’t detract from heavier eyeshadow looks.

Hooked on Pink is a bright medium creme pink; although it looks soft in the picture, it really does pop.  Perfect for going out at night, and definitely not for tamer personalities.

Nearly There is the sheerest of the shades I own.  It adds a slight hint of nude with a little shimmer and glossy finish.  It’s understated yet gorgeous.

Sugared Honey is a mid-tone nude, and I suppose “sugared” means “heavy on the frost.”  I find I need to tone down the shimmer with a creme pink lipgloss.

Yummy Plummy is a gorgeous pinky-plum creme lipstick, and my personal favorite.  I actually bought two, because I’m afraid they might stop producing these lipsticks!


They have a very nice consistency, not too sticky, and stay put for a decent amount of time.  While not heavily pigmented, they do look very nice alone or layered over lipstick.  Plumtastic is a sheer plum shade, with no shimmer.  Sugared Honey is a pinky-beige nude shade with slight shimmer.  I didn’t take pictures wearing the glosses, let me know if you really want to see a picture and I will post them up.
