To carry on from their other Blushed Nudes range (an eye shadow palette & nail polish), Maybelline have released the Color Sensational Blushed Nudes lipsticks AUD$16.95, a collection of nudey-pink lipsticks.
There are 6 lipsticks in the collection, each one has very fine rose gold micro glitter so they sparkle a little, definitely not over the top obvious however. The formula is more sheer than what I am used to with Maybelline lipsticks so they take a little to build up, particularly the lighter shades. They are also quite heavily fragranced of a sweet scent. I've never really been one to be put off a product because of it's scent however these are quite over powering when first applied. The scent does wear off over time.
I have to say, this collection isn't as nude as I'd like it to be, with a name like "Blushed Nudes". However the colours are beautiful and I like how it's a wide range of pinks.
107 Fairly Bare - A very light warm baby pink. This shade would mostly likely only suit fair skin tones due to it being so light.
117 Tip Top Tulle - A light cool baby pink.
207 Pink Fling - The most nude of the bunch (and probably my favourite), Pink Fling is exactly what I imagine "Blushed Nudes" to be, a beautiful nudey pink.
157 More to Adore - This is one is more of a dusty watermelon shade.
137 Sunset Blush - A subdued coral.
407 Lust Affair - A warm reddy-pink.
