Maybelline Colour Sensational Pearl Lipsticks

Whilst Christmas shopping the other day, I came across some Maybelline lipstick samples. Being the lip product lover that I am, I snapped them up!

The colours that I got were Pearly Pink and Coral Gleam. Pearly pink, as the name suggests, is a light pink colour that has a pearly sheen to it. I personally found that it was much too frosty for me. I wouldn't buy this colour for myself because it just made me look like a corpse. Coral Gleam was much better. It was a lot less frosty and contained more colour than sparkle. I thought it was going to be too orange in colour, however I found it to be quite easy to wear.

 On the left is Coral Gleam. The colour in real life is slightly different - a little more orange coloured, but still completely wearable. Below is Pearly Pink and it actually looks quite nice in the picture. It was a lot more shimmery and white in colour in real life, of course resulting in me looking rather washed out. It wasn't too awful but I definititely would not purchase the Pearly pink lipstick.

I looked up the lipsticks on the Maybelline website to see the different shades. It is funny because these two colours are the exact colours that I would generally choose, however this time Pearly Pink didn't work out.

I really quite liked the texture and feel of these lipsticks - they were smooth and creamy, although I did find Pearly Pink to contain a couple of gritty bits. I'm not sure whether this was because it came in a tiny sample though.

I'm not sure that this lipstick range would be anything that I would check out. I already have a pearly/frosty kind of lipstick and I don't wear it all that often.

I would give Pearly Pink 3 out of 10, and Coral Gleam 6 out of 10.
