I'm blogging right now from Greenbelt 5 and the place just exudes this Christmas-y vibe: Christmas light and trees are now everywhere, and the air is filled with Christmas jingles! I am so excited for this season!
Speaking of the holidays, berries and wines are so in this season. In my experience, high end makeup brands make good berry and wine shades and it's so hard to find good ones from entry level brands. Good thing Maybelline came out with ColorSensational Jewels, a lipstick collection comprised of luxurious, bold shades.
The holographic tube is just so cute! It reminds me of our Pink and Blue Christmas lights in our old house.

Pigmentation is very good--it's almost the same as the original ColorSensational Long Lasting line, but this one has a different finish: It is more moisturizing and leaves a hint of sheen. Staying power is very good, albeit the colors could leave a semi-permanent stain on your lips. Don't worry, the stain goes away overnight.
Berry Brilliant is a wine shade with a pinky undertone and plain finish.
Fuchsia Crystal is a deep fuchsia color with a slight berry undertone and micro glimmers. The glimmers aren't really noticeable once they're on your lips.

Both colors have this violet-ish tone to them. Fuchsia Crystal is good for daytime, while Berry Brilliant is good for night time.
Hear ye, hear ye. I am happy to announce that my beloved (and pricey) Nars Funny Face lipstick is somehow duped by Fuchsia Crystal! On this skin swatch, both colors look EXACTLY alike.
But on my lips, both lipsticks look slightly different from each other because both have different finishes: Nars is semi-matte while Maybelline is creamy. Nars' Funny Face has this unique blue glimmer, while Maybelline's Fuchsia Crystal has silver glimmer. If not for its glossy sheen, Fuchsia Crystal would've been the perfect dupe for Funny Face. But it's so close-for the first time, I have found a good alternative to Funny Face, one of my most favorite fuchsia shades. So if you want the gorgeous color of Funny Face without having to spend a fortune, grab Maybelline's Fuchsia Crystal!
I highly recommend this line because it's very affordable, yet the colors don't look cheap at all!
