My first beauty review on my blog! Exciting times :)
I picked up these two lipsticks from the Maybelline Colour Whispers range after deciding that I needed to branch out and expand my very small lipstick collection. I've heard some amazing things about these products and have been wanting to try them for a while, so when I saw them during a 1-Day makeup sale, a snapped them up without hesitation.
The two colours I picked out are Red Around Town and Strike A Rose. Red Around Town is a sheer red colour without any shimmers or glitters, and has a nice glossy finish. The colour is bright without being in-your-face; the perfect red lip for day time wear. Strike A Rose is a light to medium pink colour with a subtle frosted/metallic finish. This is my personal favourite out of the two!
Both these lipsticks have a super moisturizing and soft formula that glides onto the lips effortlessly. They feel very comfortable to wear, and aren't sticky or tacky at all. Red Around Town is a bit sheer, but can easily be built up to give a more opaque finish. They do tend to wear off quickly/smudge easily though, due to the light texture. However, they are super easy to re-apply when in need of a touch up, especially Strike A Rose since it is a less intense shade.

Overall, I really love these lipsticks, and definitely think I'll be purchasing some more very soon! I definitely recommend trying them out, especially if you're just starting out with makeup. They're just so easy to wear, and super affordable too. There are have so many colour options though, I might have a hard time picking.. If you've used any of these lipsticks, I'd love to hear what shade is your favourite! :)
