Beauty Blurbs: Maybelline ColorSensational Lipcolor in Warm Me Up


Hey party people! Y’all ready for fall? This warm, nude lipstick is perfect for this season, and honestly, year-round! I’ve reviewed Maybelline’s ColorSensational lipcolors before in Vivid Rose and Vibrant Mandarin, but those colors are just a tad bit bright for October. Since I love the formula of Maybelline ColorSensational lipsticks and they have such a great selection, I decided to look for a fall color within their collection.

I decided on Warm Me Up, and I couldn’t be happier. I would describe Warm Me up as “my lips but better.” It’s almost the same shade as my natural lips, but it has some pinky-brown undertones that give my lips a little extra oomph. To show you how natural looking it is, I only applied it to my top lip in the picture below.2

The formula is relatively long-wearing and pretty moisturizing. I applied it yesterday, and it stayed on for four hours easily. Aside from it being a great product, the price is wallet-friendly, too! 3 I think this color would look great on a variety of skin tones. Since it’s relatively neutral, you could pair it with dramatic eye looks or with a swipe of mascara on days you’re running out the door. 4

This color is very similar to my holy grail lip product, Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey, so I think it will be a staple in my makeup routine for quite awhile! 5 Are you as excited as I am about my newest lipstick find?? If not, just give me a fake smile and pretend.


If try Warm Me Up, let me know what you think! I hope you love it as much as I do!

Beauty Blurbs: Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids in Vivid Rose


I’ve been wanting a bright pink lipstick for spring lately, but I couldn’t seem to find one I liked. I was scared to break my love affair with Revlon Balms, but then I saw my fellow Aggie, Meg, post about some beautiful Maybelline colors. I realized I’d been breezing past every other brand straight to Revlon, and I needed to branch out!


The Maybelline lipsticks are organized by color type (Buffs, Vivids, Reds, etc.), which makes them super easy to shop. I went straight for the Vivids section and zeroed in on Vivid Rose, a bright, hot pink.


I was so happy to see that the color was just as rich on my lips as it was in the tube. I hate when a color looks vibrant, but once you put it on it’s sheer. This was TOTALLY not the case with Vivid Rose! It was super pigmented, bright, and completely coated my lips.


Vivid Rose also has a pretty shine to it, and I think it really complimented my fair skin. I have to say though, I’m pretty sure any skin tone could pull off this shade of pink. It has honey nectar in it too, which made it moisturizing. I loved that it didn’t dry out my lips at all.


The wear is pretty good. I don’t think it claims to be long-wearing, but it lasted several hours on me before it wore off. However, the first time I wore this, I met a friend for lunch at Chic-fil-a (aka Food Heaven). After I ate my Chicken Sandwich she informed me that I had pink lipstick smeared all over my chin. Any of my lipstick that got on the bread transferred back onto my chin, and I couldn’t get it off…so…that was cool. Meaning: it’s VERY long-wearing on the chin, and pretty long-wearing on the lips. You’ve been warned if you eat food with it on.

5That being said, Vivid Rose is a beautiful color that is just as pretty on as it is in the tube. At around $7-8, the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids lipstick is a great purchase. I’m anxious to try some of the other shades soon! And…I must agree, the color IS Sensational. 😉
