Maybelline Color Sensational Shine Lip Colors

I've got some absolutely stunning lip colours to show you today from Maybelline and I have a feeling these are the budget alternatives to certain high end / high price sheer but glossy lipsticks... *cough* Chanel Rouge Coco Shines *cough*


Late last year I was sent a lovely surprise pack from Maybelline for Christmas, which included all of the colours in this collection, and of course I couldn't not show them on the blog.

There are 10 colours in the Maybelline Color Sensational The Shine Lip Color range which are all swatched below.

L/R: Rosy Dream, Beige Rose, Iced Tea, Juicy Pink, Juicy Bubblegum
Rosy Dream - very pale blue based pink for a hint of shimmer
Beige Rose - sheer pinked beige
Iced Tea - a frostier version of Beige Rose
Juicy Pink - frosty light raspberry pink
Juicy Bubblegum - creamy blue based pink (my favourite... in case you can't guess!)


L/R - Mango Diamonds, Cherry Candy, Sugar Plum, Mauve Diamonds, Luminous Cocoa

Mango Diamonds - sheer creamy coral
Cherry Candy - sheer cherry red
Sugar Plum - slightly frosted light plummy colour
Mauve Diamonds - frosted blue toned mauve
Luminous Cocoa - frosted bronze colour

Overall thoughts
  • They glide on very smoothly and feel silky and moisturising on the lips. 
  • They have a barely noticeable fruity smell, although according to Maybelline they are honey infused. I can't really smell the honey, more a fresh berry like smell. 
  • Not heavily pigmented, so they're great if you want to experiment with bolder brighter shades but want to start slowly. 
  • Because they are sheer and lightweight they last on the lips about 2 - 3 hours if you don't eat or drink but will disappear at the first bite of your breakfast bagel (ok, maybe I'm talking about me here, I'm clearly going through a bagel phase).

    As I mentioned earlier, these are the purse friendly alternatives to the likes of Chanel Rouge Coco Shines and Dior Addict High Shine lip colours. I never jumped on the Rouge Coco Shine bandwagon because no matter how I tried I could not justify the exorbitant price tag however a cheaper alternative is always welcome!
    Available - January 2012  for $16.95 aud each wherever Maybelline is sold

    What do you think of sheer lipsticks? Love them or leave them?

    10. How nice! I can't decide which ones are my favourites, the greatest thing is that the shimmery versions are not intimidating. xx

    11. are these different than the High Shine lipsticks?

    12. Love the Mango one! Great swatches.

    13. Holly - I think they're the same as the High Shine ones but in Australia they're called THE Shine. They are all exactly the same colours and finishes.

      Anni - you're obsessed with your Rouge Cocos, so I won't try to convert you over to these.

    14. I'm always blown away by the prices of imported brands in Australia. Seems so high! :D I totally predicted your favorite though! It's a great suggestion to use these to ease into brighter colors~

    15. Such beautiful shades! :) I'm not a Maybelline fan, but I would definitely try at least one of these.

    16. I really like the look of Iced Tea and the 2 bubblegum shades.Mango diamonds looks lovely also.

      Lilit...Bagels are the bomb!

    17. Om nom nom I like the look of Juicy Bubblegum, Mango Diamonds and Cherry Candy! I used to hate the idea of sheer lipsticks, but I'm quite liking them lately. I'm not a huge L'Oreal fan but I'm also liking the look of those sheer lipsticks they put out recently (whatever they're called :P)

    18. These remind me of the Revlon lip butters! I love this line and can't wait to try a few of the shades.

    21. Ah! Thank you for the review! I've seen these around.. Looks really nice in your swatches, but too pearly for my liking :( I think with your lovely skin tone, you could pull off Rosy Dream easy? ^_^ Looking forward to see you include these into FOTDs!! ^_^ x
