I recently was told by a friend that I might be a little too obsessed with Maybelline products because that was all I was suggesting to her when she was asking me for recommendations! But their products just perform so well and I can never get enough of them! The one product that I was most excited to try out recently was the Maybelline Colour Sensational Shine Compulsion Lipsticks! I can’t get enough of Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipsticks so I knew when this was released that it was a must try.

The packaging on this is gorgeous! It’s their normal Colour Sensational lipstick bullet but it has a stunning shiny rose gold colour to it! It does have a flat top lipstick – similar to most lip balms that I’ve tried. This can make it a little difficult to get the colour on precisely but if you take your time around the edge of your lips it’s not too bad. I do wish that the lipstick bullet was a little bit smaller or it was pointed better because that would make it a lot easier to apply!
I don’t always love the glossy Maybelline lipsticks so I was really interested to see how the formula would apply on my lips. Sometimes their glossy lipsticks can skip and look weird and splotchy on my lips. This formula though was a huge improvement. I love how it applied on my lips and it gave me a full punch of colour in a swipe or two.
It terms of the lasting power of the lipstick I found that it did easily fade throughout the day. It wasn’t able to withstand coffee drinking or eating and it usually was all over my water bottle, coffee cup or food! I don’t mind that sometimes because it was very easy to quickly apply again as the day went on. I definitely wouldn’t wear this if I needed something to look perfect and last throughout the day.
I loved the shade that I picked out Spicy Mauve. It’s the perfect berry shade that is wearable but still slightly bold. I had no problems wearing it when I was going out or on days when I was just going to work.
Overall I’m super excited to pick up more shades in the future and I hope they keep releasing new colours! I love this formula and I’ll definitely get a lot of use out of it!
