Pssst I swear I exist. I’ve been traveling like a maniac but I’m back to share with you what’s been in my bag, along with a 200lb laptop and a bunch o business cards -> the new Maybelline Color Whisper lip … lip … I don’t even know what to call it.
I’m a constant applier of all things tinted lip balm ish, but this is a little bit more than that - it has the creamy feel of a lipstick but the sheer look of a tinted balm.
When I had the opportunity to pick these up c/o Maybelline, I couldn’t stop myself from buying the hot pink Faint for Fuchsia, but obviously hedged my bets like the lame adult I am and also bought the shade literally called One Size Fits Pearl.
That was not necessary. I was so pleasantly surprised when the pink turned out to be completely wearable - it’s like that bright matte pink you’re dying to wear with a grey t-shirt, jeans and Ray-Bans, like you’re some kind of retro downtown Nicki Minaj … but it’s really just the idea of that and not the (potentially so wrong) reality. It’s toned down and shined up just enough to not cause your man/woman, your boss, or your reflection to wonder where the real you went.
The sheer pearl is the easiest thing on earth - I use it on days that start with my favorite lip stain, to moisturize and create dimension.
My advice -> look at the shades in the tube, pick the lipstick shade you always wanted to wear but didn’t dare, and buy it - because what this actually is … is the wearable version of it. Trust.
