Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks - Swatches!

 You didn't really think I'd do it, huh? :P

Hey hey! New day, new post! How are we all doing today?

So, today I'd love to discuss (I thought I'd write "review", but I haven't really had a chance to use them a lot so I rephrased it) two new Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks I recently purchased! On Maybelline New York's website, they put a little "Why You'd Love It" section in the Product Details box, and they write as follows: 
"Fall in love with color, all over again:
 • Crisper color from pure pigments

 • Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar

 • Lipcolor so rich, so stunning…it’s sensational
 • 54 captivating shades"

Well, I purchased two shades: #832 - "Kiss Pearl" and #422 - "Coral Tonic". I actually didn't really plan to buy anything, but after I swatched Kiss Pearl on my hand at the drugstore and loved it(!) I decided to buy it right then and there - and since it was a "buy one get one free" sale, I thought about the fact that I have no corally colors in my collection at all, so I went ahead, swatched Coral Tonic, fell in love and bought that one too. (Impulsive shopper, aren't I?)

 Kiss Pearl is a frosty soft pink and Coral Tonic is, well, coral. Swatched on my hand they look like this:

And I've also swatched them on my lips:
Kiss Pearl

Coral Tonic
The formula is really good in my opinion - it really didn't feel like it's drying up my lips, but it's no lip balm/butter - meaning it doesn't really moisturize the lips or acts as a lip conditioner, but it feels nice to wear it. You can sort of tell how my lips are cracked a little from the cold (this winter is just bizzare - Israel is usually so hot, but this year it's just cold where I live! We had snow!!!). I'm not much of a lipstick person, I admit, but I do think that for the price - and the fact that it is a drugstore brand after all - it really is worth the money. 
Until next time...
