Maybelline Colour Sensational Popsticks!

I thought I would do a little review today on the Maybelline Colour Sensational Popsticks, in particular, the shade 030 'Pink Lollipop'. The craze of the Revlon Lip butters I think has caused this little gem to slip through the net so to speak, I haven't seen it spoken about much throughout the blogging world.

These first caught my eye mainly due to the product packaging, a bright neon pink case on the shelf; they're hard not to miss! I think it is also worth mentioning the mirror on the top end of the packaging, it is really useful for when you are out and about.


Here it is in all its glory! Now, the lipstick itself is like a neon see through pink with small glittery particles within it, I love it! It is so pretty and cute and do you know what, for me it comes out lovely! It's not bright and in your face once applied so you could use it every day. It has like a waxy appearance to it, that is the only way I feel I can describe them. They glide on great though, I even thought of a lip balm when I first applied it.

Here is a swatch I made of the shade; I hope people can see it as it's quite pale on my hand. The picture below gives an indication as to what it is like on. These shades are not something to choose if you are after a really pigmented lipstick, they are however perfect if you're after a  nice natural sheer to your lips.

They have an OK taste too which when comparing these to the Revlon Lip Butters that was something I noticed they lacked in; I think Revlon missed out on that. My only issue with these as at the moment as far as I'm aware there are currently only 5 shades, hopefully more will come out! 

These can be picked up from Boots and Superdrug.

  1. I saw these in a blog post about 6 months ago and asked in Boots if they had them. I'd forgotten the name and the woman thought I was crazy asking for the "see through" lipstick! lol

    Lovely you picked as well :)

    Thanks for following :)

    1. I haven't used mine that much at the moment so I can't say a great deal about how long they last. Need to build them up to get colour, very moisturising though :)

      (I think I was persuaded by the packaging haha)
