THE VERDICT:

Upon gazing at these newest Color Sensational Lipsticks by Maybelline, it immediately crossed my mind that they've hired Barbie as their Color Concept Director for it. I've never seen a range of pink lippies this fun, cute, and totally girly! If anything sweet, feminine, and flirty is your thing, you will love the new Pink Alert shades!

MAYBELLINE COLOR SENSATIONAL PINK ALERT LIPSTICKS IN DETAIL

POW1

- POW1 is a fluorescent pastel pink shade.

POW1 best suits fair skin tones and cool undertones-it's a pretty close dupe of MAC's st. Germain.


POW2

- A bright fuchsia pink with a slightly reddish undertone.

POW2 is a gorgeous fuchsia, which is a tad bit red and brighter counterpart of Color Sensational in Fifth Ave. Fuchsia. This shade suits warm skin tones.

POW3

- POW3 is a bright pink shade.

POW3 fits cool undertones and fair skin tones, and is pretty close to the shade of POW1, but this one's a tad bit warmer and less fluorescent yet still bright.

POW4

- POW4 is a parrot pink shade.

Parrot Pink, in my opinion, is a fancier description that brands use to describe tropical pink shades. POW4 is just that and this bright pink shade laced with coral looks stunning on medium and warm skin tones-it's bright enough to give your skin a fresh pop of color, but isn't too bold and sexy unlike POW2.

Color Sensational's lipsticks, as always, are downright moisturizing and pigmented, but I've encountered a problem with this particular batch: I realized that they're too soft and three out of the four colors ended up melting and breaking on the base considering that I store them in an air- conditioned place. There must have been a change in formulation and it's not entirely good, obviously and I hope Maybelline addresses this soon. In sum, I love these nice, new pink shades, but the consistency must be improved!

6 Lovely Thoughts

  1. Parrot pink looks best on you. Haayst, sometimes a swatch is really needed to see the real color it will give in the skin. I don't prefer soft lipstick, it doesn't last long.
