When did these come out…last summer? I never can remember these things.
Today, I’m focusing on the Maybelline Color Whispers. The last thing I thought I needed was another buttery, light coverage lip product, but then I tried this one. And then I had three. And now I can’t stop looking at them at the drugstore. Talk about a good color range, I seriously love all of the Color Whisper colors, but alas, I am running out of lip product storage, so we will have to stop at three. For now.
From Maybelline: “Pure color pigments suspended in a weightless gel.No heavy waxes or oils. Soft, sexy gel-color.”
Compared to the Revlon Lip butters, the Maybelline Color Whispers are much more lightweight, and give a softer look on the lip. They are buildable, but not much. 2 or 3 layers will give just enough color for a beautiful, everyday, pop of color.
My favorite think about the Color Whispers is the formula. They feel so, so great on the lips. Almost like half way between a gloss and lipstick. The formula isn’t heavy at all, and makes your lips feel very smooth. They aren’t the most hydrating, so I usually apply a little lip balm before I put it on in the morning.
The formula is not long lasting my any means, but it works really well to reapply, especially without a mirror. It is a great handbag product because you can apply on the go.
Sometimes I find the color can get a little trapped in the grooves of my lips, so don’t go overboard with the layers. One of two swipes is really all you need to get a great look.
Packaging is your typical lip product packaging. The covers match the color pretty well so you can figure out which one is which easily.
I have the colors ‘Petal Rebel’ which is a muted bright pink. In the tube it looks a tad shocking, but on the lips it is sheered out with just enough Barbie pink. ‘Pin Up Peach’ is a a pinky peach with a bit of shimmer and just a tad of a brown undertone. It is very sheer, but gives the lips a perfect peachy tint. Last, is ‘Lust for Blush’. This is a great everyday nude, sort of my lips but better shade. I wish it was just a tad less brown, but it looks really great with a smokey eye.
Do you have any Maybelline Color Whispers? What is your favorite shade?
