Maybelline Color Sensational Color Whisper Lipsticks: Review + Swatches!


So unless you have been living under a rock you've probably heard of the new Maybelline Color Sensational Color Whisper Lipsticks. These Color Whispers are Maybelline's version of a tinted lip balm with a glossy finish, and let me just say that I'm in love! Keep reading to find out which shades I picked from the 20 available and check swatches down below!


The four shades I picked are Coral Ambition, Cherry On Top, Pin Up Peach and Lust For Blush. My favorite would definitely be Cherry On Top as it gives the most color and also leaves a pretty stain on my lips once the glossy finish has worn away.


I'll start by saying that these feel really nice on the lips. You almost can't feel them at all really, which is what I prefer in my lip products sometimes. They give a sheer tint of color to the lips that is buildable but still is on the lighter side no matter how many times you swipe it.


My lips are on the more pigmented rosy side, so these show up different on me than they do when I swatch them. I still love the way all four look on me, and will be returning to my local drugstore for more when I can.

L-R: Coral Ambition, Cherry On Top, Pin Up Peach, Lust For Blush


Coral Ambition is a soft coral peach shade.
Cherry On Top is a pink with a fuchsia tint.
Pin Up Peach is pinky peach shade.
Lust For Blush is a soft rosy pink. It is also the sheerest shade of the four.


I love these for days where I'm in a hurry, or where I just want soft neutral makeup. These leave such a lovely glossy finish to the lips and they last on me for about 3-4 hours. They have virtually no scent that I can detect and that goes for taste as well. These are also on the more hydrating side, which is nice for these drying Winter months.


If you're curious how these compare to the Revlon Lip Butters, I'll tell you that they are indeed different. The Revlon Lip Butters feel heavier on the lips, are more pigmented and in most cases, have a frostier finish. If you want a side by side comparison, let me know in the comments below! These retail for around $6 but I purchased mine on a BOGO 50% off offer at Walgreens! So check around your local drugstores for the deals.
