NEW Maybelline Colorsensational Pearls lipstick swatches

Wednesday, 5 October 2011

Look what arrived on my desk today…

Ah, the joys of being a beauty ed…

One of the first things you notice about Maybelline’s new Colorsensational Pearl lippies is the soft, pretty vanilla-esque scent. Perhaps it’s the Honey Nectar they’ve used to give each lippie a nourishing, creamy texture…

…and how cute is the pretty pink packaging?

Available in nine shades, each lipstick contains a blend of 3 different pearly pigments to ensure they all give off a soft, natural-looking glow. Due to their creamy texture, they don’t last as long on your lips as Maybelline’s other lippies,  but as they feel so deliciously indulgent on your lips, reapplying every so often is a bit of a treat.

Anyhoo, take a look at the shades, we did a nice, fat swatch session for you…

These were shot without flash on a co-worker who is darker than I am as these shades were too pale to show up on my skin. From L to R; Rose Pearl, Delicate Pearl and Pearly Pearl.

If you’re a pearly girl, look out for Maybelline’s Pearl collection in store, they’ve just hit the shelves and each shade is a v. reasonable R89,95 a pop.
