Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Coral Lustre

I actually really, really like this lipstick, even if there are some problems overall.

-Just like the name suggest, it’s a lovely coral, a bright pinky/orange.  It pulls very pink, but still has an orange sheen to it, which works for me.

-The packaging is cute, although the shiny tube got so many fingerprints and scuffs from being in my purse, it went from looking splendid to scrubby in a couple hours flat.

-The color glides right on, it honestly felt like applying chapstick – it was that moist and creamy.  Because of this, I didn’t have anything on underneath or on top; the product worked well on its own.  It lasted about 3 1/2 hours, which isn’t much, but I don’t mind reapplying, especially when it’s such a creamy, moisturizing formula.  It’s slightly sheer, kind of that “your lips but better” look.  I guess it’s “your lips but really coral-tinted.”  It’s a totally lovely summer shade, which makes me sad that I purchased this at the beginning of fall, but there’s always next year.  There’s also no offensive odor or taste, whatsoever.

-Here are some swatch shots (I didn’t use the flash at all, I was rocking out the sunny day) for your viewing pleasure:
