Maybelline - Colour Sensation High Shine Lip Gloss

Hey lovelies! So a few days ago I received my first ever Her Fashion Box and inside I received a Maybelline Colour Sensation High Shine Lip Gloss in the shade 040 Captivating Coral. You would probably know by know that I'm not really a fan of lip gloss simply because I don't like the texture.

I find the packaging to be quite average but not cheap like those plastic tube glosses. It would have been good to include some branding so it'd be easier to identify which product you are using for future references.

The colour is a really nice orangey coral and it looks quite pigmented when I swatch it. There's a really small amount of shimmer as well though it's not very noticeable but it adds a bit of dimension. What caught my attention was the tangy, orangey scent when I opened the product. It's not a strong scent but if you like fruity, citrusy scents then you'll definitely like the smell of this.

What I love about this lip gloss is it's not as sticky in comparison to other lip glosses I've tried. However I noticed there was a very weird tingling sensation when I applied it on my lips and I find this uncomfortable. Luckily the tingling feeling went away and it's supposed make your lips look fuller. I also love how easily this went on my lips; the texture is really smooth and it really makes my lips feel moisturised.

Please excuse my horrible panda eyes

Look at how full my lips look, especially my bottom lip! The colour isn't as orange as the swatch as my lips are somewhat pigmented already but it's still a nice colour! I found that it only lasted me around 2-3 hours after eating and drinking, but definitely much longer if you're not doing anything.

So I hope you enjoyed reading my review. Have you tried any lip glosses from this range and what are your thoughts? :)

  6. That color looks lovely on you! I feel like a lot of plumpers do have something inside that make your lips tingle. That is probably because it plumping as it tingles!
