Maybelline Color Sensational The Pearls Collection lipstick swatches

Today I have some swatches for you of the new Maybelline Color Sensational The Pearls collection. This collection consists of 10 lipsticks, of which I have 5 swatched here for you. To check out the other shades, they are here on ulta. I also just realized that the color Bronze Beam is in this collection, which I have (someone gave it to me) and I can't pull off brown or bronze anything. Bronze Beam is the darkest color in the collection and kind of the odd one out in my opinion. There are also some coordinating glosses in this collection but I'm not sure how many shades.

These colors are mostly very light, pearly colors that are probably overly frosty for most people. I really like them to layer gloss over personally or for a little color that lasts longer than a gloss. I really like the texture on the Color Sensationals, they are nice and smooth and a little moisturizing. They sell for around $7 each and I've found them at almost any drug store.

Other than that the swatches kind of speak for themselves. However, I do have a little something to say about Coral Gleam. When I picked this up I had already had the matching lipgloss, which is a creamy soft coral. Combined with the color of that and the color of Coral Gleam in tube I thought that would be a soft coral pearl...pfft, no. This came out way too "spicy" for my liking. It's more of a terracotta color than coral in my opinion. Anyways, on to the swatches!





And here is a photo to show these aren't overwhelmingly frosty. I'm wearing Pearly Pink topped with a dab of clear gloss. I think these are the perfect counterbalance to a dark or dramatic eye.

I had decided to pass on these - but your pics have changed my mind. I definitely need Twinkle, and possibly some of the others.

And your haircolor. Drooooool. So awesome.
