Lip balm stains have seemingly taken over the lip product category, and I think it’s a good, good thing. Brand new to your local mass market retailers this month are 20 shades of Color Whisper Lipsticks by Maybelline. Equal parts lipstick, balm, and stain, these gel-based lippies deliver shine, high pigmentation, and longevity.
Years ago I wondered what new, big thing could ever compete with lip gloss. As much as I love and cherish a shiny lip, who knew that a hybrid product of lipstick, balms, and stains would come around to grab our collective attention?
Out of a full display at my local CVS store I plucked out shade 85, Berry Ready, and have proceeded to fall deeply in love with this opaque and beautiful plum color.
These application and feel of Maybelline Color Whisper Lipsticsk is oh, so smooth. Once upon a time I had a coworker whose license plate said “Likbutr” and I’m not even kidding you that’s exactly how I feel about the texture of this lipstick. Like butter!
Between Revlon’s Lip Butters, L’Oreal Color Riche Lip Balms, and Maybelline Color Whisper, Maybelline and Revlon are the most similar to each other. Maybelline is a tad bit smoother than Revlon Lip Butters, in my makeup loving opinion.
The price is right at around $7, and I will definitely be back for more! You can find Maybelline Color Whisper Lipsticks at your local mass market retailer.
