Maybelline Color Whisper Review, Photos, & Swatches. Plus a Sweepstakes!


Maybelline Color Whisper

I have been hearing raves about Maybelline’s new Color Whisper Lipsticks ($7.49 USD) from the beauty community for some time now, so I was very excited when I finally got my hands on some this past week. With 20 shades to choose from, I had a hard time picking out which ones I wanted to try out first in the collection. I decided to choose one of each color from the plum, coral, pink and mauve families (the shades of lip products I normally wear). Plus, all four colors I chose are perfect for spring!

I left the store with the following four (4) shades:

  • Petal Rebel: Sheer, cool pink
  • Coral Ambition: Peachy Coral
  • Lust for Blush: Muted Mauve Pink
  • Oh La Lilac: Light Lavender 

First off, I am in love with the packaging of these lipsticks! You can see the color of the lipstick through the beautiful jewel-toned cap adorned with the word color Whisper in beautiful writing. Aside from the beautiful packaging, I found these lipsticks to range from a sheer to medium to full coverage, generally the darker the shade was the more pigmentation it had. All of the lipsticks I picked up swatched beautifully on my hand with high pigmentation. When applied to my lips, they glided on smoothly leaving my lips with a weightless, gorgeous shine. They did apply on my lips more sheer than when I swatched them on my hands; however, the color was easily buildable. I love how fool proof the sheer to medium shades are to apply, making them perfect to toss in your bag for a quick application anytime. In addition, they provide my dry lips with moisturize, which I love!

I find that with the gel formula they do not “set” in place, which makes the lasting power just a few hours. I also find the full coverage lipsticks less fool proof and a little scarier to apply on the go. However, I have an easy tip to help set the lipstick in place for longer wear and a less likely possibility that they will smudge. What works for me is applying a lip primer and a lip liner. Using these products will help keep your lipstick or gloss from feathering or bleeding. In my personal experience, this method helps lock the lipstick or gloss in place for hours longer than without using one!
