The gorgeous Natasha from Bellezakisses and I were chatting a few months back and I expressed the fact I would love to try the 'Color Whisper' lipsticks that aren't available in the UK. So we decided to do a swap, Natasha really wants to try the Apocalypse so in return for these Whispers she will be receiving some of them. Time kind of went on, Natasha was moving house so we had to put the swap on hold. However, to my surprise, these gorgeous little beauties arrived on my doorstep last week.
Maybelline Color 'Whispers'
The Maybelline Color Whispers are available over in the States but unfortunately not released over here, as far as I am aware. In 20 stunning shades, the Color Whispers are a cross between the Revlon Lip Butters and Maybelline Baby Lips. They have the pigmentation of the Lip Butters but moisturising like Baby Lips. However, the darker shades do seem to have a richer pigment than that of the lighter shades.
The packaging of these are really pretty, slender and rectangular which is perfect for storage. I like the fact that each of the shades correspond to the colour of their respective lids.
Natasha very kindly sent me 4. From left to right -
Who wore it Red-er, Made it Mauve, Rose of Attraction,
Faint for Fuchsia
Each of the shades are true to their colours. None are overpowering and each give a nice coverage over the lip. They are very build able to give you the desired look you are going for and if you don't have a mirror, don't worry you could easily apply these without any worry if the lack of mirror situation occurred. These are really moisturising and will appeal to all - I am sure.
I will probably shock some of my regular readers by saying that my favourite out of the lot is 'Faint for Fuchsia' - this is a barbie pink and I'm really loving a bold lip this season. Normally I go for a Red but trying to live a little.
The only negative i'd have about these is the longevity, I do feel l have to reapply every couple of hours but this isn't a huge issue to me. They have a gorgeous smell, can't quite put my finger on it but refreshers or for those of you who remember 'fruit salads', spring to mind.
I said before that these aren't available in the UK however, when scouring the web, I came across an Ebay seller based in England selling these for £6.95 each - with free delivery. The price being very similar to the Revlon Lip Butters.
