Bare essentials: Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs collection

Maybelline title

If you know me, you will know I love my lipsticks.  If you really know me, you’ll know that I mostly only wear nudes or pinks.  So when I found out that Maybelline was releasing a collection that only had nude shades, I just about died.

I have been a huge fan of Maybelline’s lipsticks since they released their Color Sensational Vivids collection a year or so ago.  Knowing how amazing Maybelline’s lipsticks are, I knew that this collection would not disappoint.  The Buffs is also part of their Color Sensational line, so that means that they are very pigmented and moisturizing.

The 10 shades in the line range from a concealer-like nude to a deep wine colour.  Since they are all nudes, they range from having pink, red, and brown undertones.  So that means that if you are pale as me or darker, you can find a shade that’s perfect for your skin tone.  Total plus in my books!

Since I am quite fair, my favourites are 910 Bare All (this is a great base colour, I don’t think I would wear it solely on it’s own), 915 Blushing Beige (my favourite), 920 Nude Lust, and 930 Truffle Tease.  For the most part, I have been wearing Blushing Beige probably most days since I got them.

There are two more colours which I haven’t tried, 935 Sin-A-Mon and 940 Touchable Taupe. Overall I was actually surprised by this collection.  Obviously I love the lighter shades but even the darker ones, those of which have brown undertones, are quite wearable on me and my fair skin as well.  I do want to note that as amazing as these colours are, the lighter ones don’t have the best wear on them.  I find I have to reapply every hour or so.

Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs collection launched a month or so ago so check your local drugstore for a display.  I believe that they are part of the permanent collection.  Shop around for the best price, so far Wal-Mart Canada are the cheapest I’ve seen them.
