Maybelline New Lippies

Hello, hello heelloooo!!! I put my blog on pause for a little while but as I'm in between changing my position at work- blah blah blaahhh boring stuff. In more exciting news- I got myself a new camera which I'm very happy about and can't wait to try it out. ANYWAY onto the post today which is about Maybelline's Color Sensational's 'Blushed Nudes' lipsticks.

Following the release of The Blushed Nudes eyeshadow palette, Maybelline have released a range of their popular Color Sensational lipsticks also called 'Blushed Nudes'. Even though personally I don't wear a lot of pink, I thought the colours are perfect for spring so I bought shade 117 'tip top tuille', 207 'pink fling' and 940 'rose rush'.
Stating off with shade 117 'tip top tullie'. Its a sheer pink and it's quite glossy. It's quite a cold tone pink so it wasn't the best match for my skin, but still a really nice colour. The only thing I didn't like with this shade is that for some reason it was a bit patchy to apply. I think this is because is quite glossy and such a light colour? I don't know, but it's not that pigmented. 
Next onto shade 207 'pink fling'. I liked this colour a lot more on me, it's a warmer pink and suited my warm toned skin a lot more. I felt this colour was easier to apply and more pigmented. I thought I would have the same issues with the previous shade as they are both the same finish, but no, 207 was fine! I really like this shade, for someone like me who normally steers well clear of pinks, this is a nice way to add a little bit in as it's still quite a natural colour.
Finally shade 940 'rose rush'. This is a bright, matte pink shade. This colour is very bold. It's nice but it's very cool toned again. The formula of the matte shades are much nicer than the sheer ones to apply, like it's a lot easier, but I have to say it's not completelyyyy matte. I can live with that though. I already have two other shades from Maybelline's Color Sensational range which I really like and again, I am happy with this one too. The only thing is the colour, not the best match for me, but I'm sure when the sun starts shining and I get some colour back, it will look good!

Personally my favorite shade out of the three would be 'pink fling'. It's the one that suits my skintone the best, but I do like 940 'rose rush' because of the matte finish and the nice pigmentation. Another weird point to add in- they all smell amazing, so that's a plus? All in all I think they are decent lipsticks. The matte shades are longer lasting and I think give a nicer looking finish, but for the price they are OK value. I think the range of shades in this collection are lovely, maybe not are all for my skin tone but for paler/cooler complexions, I think this would be great. You can pick any of these lipstick's up at Boots or Superdrug for £6.99.
