New collection alert! I’m excited to be bringing you a review of the new Maybelline ColorSensational Stripped Nudes collection, featuring the lipstick shade Coffee Craze. I received this product in a recent Glossybox and was intrigued to try it out.
On first glance, I wasn’t sure that this would necessarily be the shade for me. I’ve always avoided any make up shade with ‘coffee’ or similar in the name, as I think my pale skin just ain’t made for it. But there was something about this that drew me in (not going to lie, I think I just loved the packaging!) and I gave it a try.
My favourite thing about the lipstick is the shape of it – the unusually angled tip actually makes the application a million times more precise (not that I’m exaggerating or anything…) and allows you to make your cupid’s bow look more defined. The shade is actually much nicer than I imagined – it’s not my all-time-favourite, but it’s something I would definitely consider wearing out!
I also love how moisturising the formula is (essential for dry lipped girls like me!). The lipstick does need a couple of coats to look fully applied and not patchy, but once it’s on properly it’s good to go. I love being pleasantly surprised by a product and am excited to try different eye make up looks to go with it!
Are you ever surprised by shades you don’t think will suit you? Let me know!
