I was in looking for new releases in Boots recently and these caught my eye. They are the Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints.
The packaging reminded me of the lip paints Sleek had out a few years ago which I loved. Or like the Too Faced Melted lipsticks which I never tried but I know people had mixed feelings about them. Again, like the L’Orèal True Match Highlight which I spoke about last week here. The Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints are something I can’t get much information about online. The States are calling them Color Jolts and have had them for a while now. If you do want to see some extra info or swatches. But, I thought I would throw my Irish two cents in, just in case too 🙂
We have five shades to choose from in the range. I picked up two of them to try because they were on buy one get on half off.
They have an angled sponge tipped applicator and the product comes out of the middle. Feels nice to apply with, but it will get a bit messy after a few uses.
I went with 110 ‘Never Bare’ which is a nude pale pink colour. They also have a brown nude in the collection.
This one is 120 ‘Fight Me Fuchsia’. I chose this because for some reason this type of hot pink always draws me in. I don’t know why 🙂
Here they are swatched side by side on my arm to give you an idea of the difference and the opaqueness of the colour.
The Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints are to me a creamy pigmented gloss. They apply nicely and don’t feel sticky or uncomfortable on the lips. They also smell like watermelon which I quite like. But, if you are not into strong scents, that could be a deal breaker for you. As they are a gloss they do move. But, the pigment does stain, so when the gloss fades, you do have some residual colour left over.
The Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints are in Boots stores at the moment but haven’t popped up on the Irish website just yet. They are priced at €7.49. You can check out the other selection of colours on the UK website here though.
