Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Swatches (Brick Beat, Crazy for Coffee)

After mentioning my favorite lipstick formulas in another post, I thought it would be nice to swatch any formulas or colors that I haven’t shared in the past. Today I’ll be sharing my Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks.

These two shades are part of Maybelline’s traditional line which they used to refer to as a satin finish. They are now called “The Creams” and I think that is a more accurate description of the formula. They are comfortable, moisturizing, and provide good pigmentation. I would say they have a medium opacity. If you like a more opaque coverage, I don’t think these will do it for you. Brick beat has a little more coverage than crazy for coffee, but it is still not fully opaque.

While this formula does have some thickness to it, it doesn’t feel heavy. Brick beat has a thicker texture than crazy for coffee, which I would assume is part of why it is slightly more pigmented. Overall, I find the Maybelline formula to be comfortable but it does feel thicker on the lips than the Revlon Super lustrous lipsticks. This formula also has a scent, so if you prefer an unscented lip product you will not like these. If you are interested in this lipstick, save yourself some money and get it from Walmart ($5.50) or Target ($5.69).

If you are interested in my other favorite formulas, I’ll also be sharing swatches of the Bobbi Brown Luxe Lipsticks in the future. I have already posted a swatch of the Laura Mercier Rouge Essentiel in Brun Naturel and the Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks.
