maybe the tagline finally makes sense

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.

    I bought that exact color and it’s beautiful. However, I don’t like wearing it because it creates little vertical creases on my bottom lip. So when I smile all you see are these ugly vertical lines. This happens to me a lot with lipstick products so I never wear them. :( But I thought I’d try this and it did the same thing. I only wear glosses because of this. Any idea of how to fix this? I love this color and would really enjoy wearing it if it didn’t create those creases. The color looks beautiful on you!

    Ok, I may have to go try that lip product. Thanks for the recommendation! By the way, I love that you cut bangs again. They are so pretty on you. I know they’re a pain when you first cut them, but you’ll get them trained in no time, and then they will be a breeze again.

    I’ve been looking for a nice lip tint for work, and my current balm with colour just isn’t cutting it. I’m going to grab some today in my travels, I’m excited to try it!

      I finally found some a few days ago, I got the peach as well and I absolutely love it! It’s very dry where I work so this stays on me and is reapplied throughout the day with zero issues. Thanks for the rec!

    I have a hard time with drugstore lip products because I hate the way they smell. Do you find that too? I think Revlon has a really bad smell, I just can’t stand it. Haven’t tried many of the others but after wasting some money on Revlon I stuck with what I know doesn’t stink, Clinique.

    You got me hooked on the Revlon Lip Butters…I’ll have to try these now.

    I wish I lived in NC so I could come to the Loft event – it sounds like so much fun!

    This seems to be a trend in the comments, but how I wish I could come to the event! WI is a little far away, and if blogger events like that happen here, I haven’t found them yet! I’d love to meet people and shop.

    Have you tried out the L’Oreal Colour Riche Lip Balm…the Maybelline packaging looks exactly like the L’Oreal one. I tried it when it first came out and have been totally and completely hooked, and haven’t bothered trying the Revlon or new Maybelline one. Definitely thinking about trying it now, but would love to know how you thought it compared to L’Oreal!

    Your cut and color look so amazing right now! I really like your hair with the carmel low lights, your skin looks so radiant! You are an inspiration, so glad I’ve found your blog!

    Just got this lip color and love how silky it feels on my lips. I used your homemade sugar and honey lip exfoliator before I tried it and I quit rubbing my lips together. They feel so soft and awesome. Love your bangs. :)

    I went three places tonight looking for it and couldnt find it in stl yet! Maybe I need to go to Ulta tomorrow night and see if they have it. I hate lipstick but cant wait to see if this one works.

    Looks like a copy of Loreal’s Color Riche lipbalm. I use that in Nearly Nude and I love it. It doesn’t dry out my lips, makes me feel like it’s a “my natural shade but better” and I don’t mind reapplying it – it feels amazing! But, I’ll definitely try this new peachy-pink color, looks great!

    I love these maybelline whisper ones, but the L’Oréal color riche lip balms are better I think. The shade Rose Elixer is my ‘my lips but better’ shade! :)

    Thanks for this recommendation! I was looking through some of your posts yesterday and stumbled on this one. I bought the color later when I went grocery shopping and I LOVE it! It’s the best pink/peachy shade of lip color I’ve ever bought.
