Look at me, being all trendy and stuff….
As I will sing out loud and proud, CVS Extra Value Bucks are my absolute favorite thing about budget-friendly makeup shopping. Buy makeup, save money, and get money to spend on even more money — it’s a win-win situation for sure. With an abundance of Extra Value Bucks to spare, I headed to a CVS that usually has most of the new beauty items in stock and picked up Maybelline’s Color Sensational Lipstick in Violet Intrigue.
True to the name of this lipstick, it is quite the sensation. Just look at the color!
Violet Intrigue is part of Maybelline’s Fall 2013 lineup, which includes 4 Color Sensational lipsticks in varying plum and purple shades. This particular purple caught my attention, and am I ever glad to have it in my makeup loving hands.
This is my my first Color Sensational lipstick, and I have to say I quite like the creamy smooth texture and vivid pigmentation that leads to longevity – it definitely won’t be my last!
My Final Thoughts: I’m hooked on this little purple lipstick! The texture is akin to many other high end brands, and I’m officially a fan!
Price: Around $8
