Maybelline Color Sensational Midnight Plum || Review

Hello Lovelies,

Today I thought I would review this little lippy as I spotted it on bloglovin' yesterday (for the life of me cannot remember where I saw it and now can't find it, so sorry) and picked it up on my travels around town.

This Maybelline magic in Color Sensational Lipstick in Midnight Plum (£7.19) is a rather brave colour for me, but as autumn will soon be here I thought I definitely needed something for the evening and this was going to be it.  I stick to nude colours during the day and brighter pinks at night but this Autumn everything was going to change.

The colour is initially rather scary, but once you have got over the shock it is actually lovely.  The lipstick is a berry/plum colour with blue undertones and a shimmery hint which was impossible to capture on camera.  I love lipsticks with a blue undertone as they make you teeth look white, I don't know anyone who doesn't want a pearly white pair of gnashers!

As the Majority of Maybelline lipsticks it glides on really easily, but I do find it rather sheer so using a brush to build colour really helped. Maybelline does normally set standards pretty high when it comes to staying power, and I wasn't dissapointed.  Although this was for autumn I write this on a really hot day sitting in my garden in shorts, just slightly ironic you've gotta love British weather!  

Is anyone else being brave with colour?


  1. Great colour - it is so pretty and would be great for autumn! :)

  2. That colour is lovely! I've seen a lot of purples/burgundys for autumn, I just might be tempted to give this lip colour a try!
