PRETTY IN PINK: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks Swatches

I actually already review these lipsticks here. They are creamy, pigmented, and last for a good amount of time. For those of you who claim that they smell like playdough most likely got a bad tube because all of mine smell like coconut and are very smooth in consistency. How did I come to this conclusion? Well, I bought Nearly There and returned it because it smelled like playdough and was hard and rubbery upon application! It was probably sitting on the shelf for a while.

The pinks and neutrals from this line goes great with my skin tone (tanned/olive complexion) and here are some swatches for your viewing pleasure.

Born With It: My favourite. A lustre pale pink so it is somewhat sheer and shimmery on my lips. Nonetheless, it is soft and really pretty.

Pink Please: Pale blue-pink with no shimmer. Some might say that this particular color is over-rated. It's also a hit or miss depending on your skin tone. When I first put it on my lip, I thought it was way too pinky but it grew on me and now I love it!

Plaza Pink: Plummy blue-pink with no shimmer. This is a nice darker color that is more mature in my opinion.

Warm Me Up: This pink is classified as one of their Neutral colors. It's almost like Plaza Pink but with less of a blue tint and more of a brown-earthy undertone.


Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase because I wear these lippies all the time :)

I love these colors... I think I like Plaza Pink and Warm Me Up the best. The not so light bright shades of pink look better on my tan complexion

I have the Pink Please and I really like the color...However, as I wore it more, it started feathering on my lips before the end of the day :[ Booo I hate it when that happens. Also, some people have complained that it smells like Play DoH?? Mine smells like coconut, so I don't know what they're talking about..How about yours?

When I put it on my lip, I thought it was way too pinky but it grew on me and now I love Jordana and maybelline Beauty Products.
