Up the drama: New lip products for fall from Maybelline


Lip products are the one beauty product I cannot get enough of.

Although my makeup drawer is filled to the brim with lipsticks, lip glosses, liquid lipsticks, etc., I love trying out new colours and new formulas. One of my favourite drugstore formula is the Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks, as they are just so creamy, glide on, and give major colour payoff.

Their fall collection, The Loaded Bolds, is made up to 10 dramatic shades perfect for the fall season. To the on-trend taupe Gone Greige to the forever in-style berry, Midnight Merlot, there is a colour for pretty much anyone’s fall look.

I received two of the shades from the 10-piece collection Mauve It, a muted mauve colour, and Midnight Merlot, a dark red-burgundy (I also featured them in last week’s fall roundup post). Both of these applied amazing and were super flattering on the lips. Best of all, they stayed put pretty much all day. I had to reapply Midnight Merlot a bit because of eating and drinking, but considering these are both cream lipsticks, the longevity on them held up quite well.


Color Sensational has been around a while, but new to the game are the Maybelline Color Jolt Intense Lip Paints. Available in eight shades from nudes to reds to purples, these give you eight-times more pigment with a dramatic application. They are in a squeeze tube with a soft flocked tip applicator, meaning you squeeze the tube to get the colour. These are super easy to apply and actually remind me of the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks (same application method, but smaller) and the OCC Lip Tars, but in a more convenient application method. Both come in a little squeeze tube, but the OCC ones you apply with a brush, which can get a little messy.

I received two colours from this line to try out, Talk Back Red and Never Bare. Never Bare is a peony-coloured pink that actually applies much nicer in tone than it looks in the package. Talk Back Red isn’t a true red, but has more of a pink undertone; it was also super flattering and very vivid on the lips.

Both of these lasted for quite some time with them fading to a stain throughout the day. They were both also super easy to apply, no lip liner ended. For C$11.99, these are much more affordable than their OCC and Too Faced counterparts. Like I said, there are only eight shades, but I’m sure they will be releasing more over the next few seasons because they are seriously bomb.

Have you tried any of the new Maybelline fall 2016 lip colour releases?
