Review: Maybelline Lipstick in Coffee Craze

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!

Stay Creative,

    It’s a really pretty delicate shade, my skin is very pale too but I do like sheer shades like this!
