When I saw the purple metallic casing I just had to get it. I picked up Nude Delight for about $5 CAD and couldn't be happier. This is my new favourite nudey at the moment because it feels like lip balm but is opaque enough to show up on my pigmented lips. It's very moisturizing like the regular line but it doesn't smell like bubblegum-- something I liked a lot about the Lasting Finish Wear lipsticks in the burgundy tubes. It glides on like a dream and the color is the perfect nude for me that doesn't wash me out like NYX's Circe. It's not over drying either like Revlon matte lipstick in Nude Attitude but it possesses the same peachy beige color (more pinky undertones though) with very subtle shimmer. Pick this up immediately, you won't be sorry. =)

nude delight, nude attitude, circe

Nude Delight on my lips. You can see my natural lip color on the corner of my lips heh

REVIEW: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Warm Me Up

The Claim: "Crisper color from pure pigments. Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar. Lipcolor so rich, so stunning… it’s sensational. "

Overall: 4 out of 5
Packaging: 3 out of 5
Price: $8-10
Would you buy this again? If it were on sale, yes.

My favorite Maybelline lipstick is a color called Nude Blush from the Moisture Extreme line. It's an opaque nudey pink color that suits my skin tone naturally and feels very moisturizing on my lips. I compared this lipstick to Warm Me Up and these are the conclusions that I've drawn.

In terms of color, i prefer Nude Blush. Warm Me Up is bit of a brownish pinky mauve... a bit too earthy for my taste. The Color sensational smells like coconut whereas Moisture Extremes smell like Nair's Hair Removal Cream, something i don't particularly fancy. Both Lipsticks are moisturizing but Nude Blush is a lot more creamier.

Staying power is average and there is no need to line your lips with this lipstick because the color will not bleed pass your lips as it is thick in consistency. I really detest the tube because it's long and that makes removing the cap off a little bit of a hassle. I'm just not used to it. Despite that, it's worth a try.

Warm me up shows up really blue-pink with flash. In real life, it's more of a brownish pink.

My lips are pretty pigmented and both colors showed up very well.
