Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstain

Ah, yet another reminder why unless absolutely necessary, to never EVER buy drugstore makeup >=(

A few weeks ago I was once again tempted by the drugstore sale fairy (damn her!) it was buy 2 for (insert slightly cheaper price here).

I did want a lip stain since I was tired of lipstick and lip gloss melting off my lips after a few hours or so, and I came across these Maybelline lip stains. Their description is "a sheer, water based lip stain." Which turned out to be a total lie. Heres me wearing the two colors I bought,

Wink of Pink:
Touch of Toffee:

As you can tell, the colors are completely, utterly off. They give me clown lips, especially the darker color. Also they leave my lips feeling strangely dessicated and covered in an unpleasant watery film. To top it off, it doesn't even stain at all. I wiped most of it off with a dry tissue after application -_-.

F- x infinity, Maybelline.


  1. I love lipstains, but I noticed the same thing with those Covergirl lipstains. They end up really dark, and the shades are really similar.
    Have you found any lipstains you like?

  2. bleh yeah haha I think we really shouldn't look to drugstore brands for lipstains... =((( I know that Stila has some lip/cheek stains and I was eyeing "yumberry crush" but it's 22 bucks! gotta wait for a sale or something...

  3. Revlon's just bitten lip stains are by far the best there is for me. :)
