Today I’ve got a gem of a lipstick for you. I’ve been wearing it the last few weeks after picking it up in Asda and it’s a great ‘summer moving into autumn’ colour when you’re not quite ready to give up the summer feeling yet.
This lipstick is from Maybelline’s Color Sensational range. I’ve previously spoken about another shade in this collection which is called Shockingly Coral,but this shade is Electric Orange.
Firstly I like that all the lipsticks were individually packaged with tape so you knew nobody else had put their sticky fingers on it. This is always a massive plus for me!
Electric Orange is shade number 912:
This shade was a NIGHTMARE to photograph as the colour doesn’t actually look like any of the following pictures….this one was taken with a flash:
Hideous! It’s definitely not neon.
Without flash is a little more true to colour but the lipstick is a bit brighter in reality.
You can see the colour and the payoff on the back of my hand, the orange is a really wearable colour and has a shine which I love in a lipstick.
It’s also quite hydrating too so I feel like I can wear it for quite a while during the day without having to worry that my lips are going to crack and flake.
You can see it on my lips below, this photo was taken with a flash so the colour might not be exact but it’s pretty close. The colour is really easy to wear and its been great over summer and the few autumn weeks we’ve had so far. I can imagine I’m going to get a lot of wear out of it.
It’s similar in some ways to MAC’s Vegas Volt but a hydrating and more sheer version.
Have you tried any Maybelline lipsticks? Which of the Color Sensational lipsticks is your favourite?
