Everytime Maybelline releases more shades in their Color Sensational range, I kind of already know I’m going to like them. I’ve had nothing but great experiences with their lipsticks before and their new Blushed Nude Lipsticks* collection is of course, stunning.

These lipsticks are creamy. They glide on absolutely effortlessly and settle really nicely on the lips. The intention of this collection (ha, it rhymes), is to give the lips a nice, ‘fresh flushed look’. To me, I personally take this as a decent pop of colour, without being too bold. I think they’ve really done this!
I personally am a little scared of lipsticks that are too bold so I like that I can play around with the depth of colour. I like to apply the lipsticks a little more light handed than I did in the swatches. Having said that, if you wanted the colour to be bolder, you can definitely layer it up. The formula is really forgiving and lets you, so why not!
My two favourite shades are 207 Pink Fling and 407 Lust Affair. Pink Fling for me is the perfect everyday shade because I am all about light, mauve, rosey pinks. Lust affair is a teeny bit more edgy and fun, perfect for a night out.
You can find the Blushed Nudes range at selected Woolworths and Coles, but if you’d like to play with the full range, try get instore a Chemist Warehouse or Priceline. The recommended retail price is $17.95.
