First thing’s first. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and one of the best features of these babies are that they leave the most perfect ‘kiss on the cheek’ marks. Exhibit A – the Beauty Bug Husband is pictured to the right with a Berry Ready kissed cheek. Just enough color, they don’t have a greasy finish, and the natural flush that it gives your lips is sexy yet demure. And, it’s a ‘barely there’ product that the significant other in your life will approve of. Maybelline takes home the gold just for that.
Available in 20 shades, you won’t be able to just buy one. Or two. Or three for that matter. Like The Beauty Bug, you’ll most likely find yourself driving from drug store to drug store looking for that one color that seems to be sold out everywhere. For The Beauty Bug it was Lust for Blush and Made-it Mauve – two universally flattering colors.
The darker colors (the reds and Berry Ready) have a bit more color payoff, but you can get decent color coverage from any shade by building. The product feels amazing on, and the nourishing honey and nectar keeps lips feeling soft and hydrated. Compared to Revlon Lip Butters, the Whisper Collection is a little less thick (texture is weightless) and a bit easier to build color.
Ladies, you need at least three Color Whisper lipsticks in your makeup bag for Spring. So, pucker up and get ready to plant on a cheek of the one you love!
Maybelline Color Whisper by Color Sensational is available at mass market retailers nationwide for $7.49.
