I have a new favorite lip product. It's called Maybelline Color Whisper. It provides moisture along with a hint of color, that's layer-able if you want more depth. You know how their tagline is "maybe she's born with it, maybe it's maybelline." ? Well, it finally rings true. People may actually think you were born with this lip color. does the post title finally make sense? maybe she's born with the gift of writing witty titles, maybe it takes hours of terrible ideas until she settles on one.
I'd compare it closely to the Revlon Lip Butters, that I wrote about here, but with a lighter, less "waxy" finish. I wouldn't describe the Lip Butters as waxy, but compared to the finish of the Color Whisper lip color, they are heavier and more dense.
So far I've only tried "Pin Up Peach", which is a great pink-y nude. It's perfect for daytime wear, but can also be thrown on top of a lipstick for shine + pink finish.
The staying power is pretty much what you would think of when you hear about a sheer, lightweight product, so you'll definitely need to reapply after a few hours, but you won't have the uneven fading that may sometime happen with lipstick.
