Maybelline Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner Review and Swatches

Lip liner was a step that I used to skip until I realized that it can really make a difference in the wear and appearance of my lip products and now it's an integral step in my makeup routine. I even enjoy wearing them on their own over lip balm for a quick and easy defined lip look which often lasts longer than any lipstick since most lip liners combine a light formulation with high pigmentation these days. Lip pencils are also probably the one makeup product I experiment with the most. I sometimes use lip liner on the inside my lip line to give the appearance of smaller my lips and I also like to play around with pairing up contrasting shades to change up my lip colors.

Maybelline recently sent me a set of their Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liners which are now offered in 14 shades. The collection includes a clear lip liner and a range of wearable nude and vibrant reds and bold colors. These are mechanical type, self-sharpening liners that twist up in the packaging to reveal a pointed tip that can be used to create a precise line as well as fill in the lips with color.

These lip liners are stiff enough to retain their shape and soft enough to glide easily over the lips. The formulation has a creamy and smooth texture but I did find that certain shades were smoother than others. They offer up a matte finish with deep pigmentation and long lasting wear whether worn alone or under other lip products. This is nice since it prevents lipstick from bleeding and feathering while the color manages to stay intact even when your other lip products wear away.  One downside is that they can be drying if you don't properly moisturize your lips before application.

Maybelline did a good job in coming up with a range of wearable shades that are both classic and trendy at the same time.  This was my first time using a clear lip liner and I really like it how it defines my lips and extends the wear of my lip products without affecting the color because sometimes you just want the unadulterated color out of the tube but without the bleeding and feathering. I also appreciated having some different nudes to play around with as well as a classic red and some deeper tones. Totally Toffee and Magnetic Mauve have been getting the most use since they closely match my everyday lip colors. I've also discovered that I could be comfortable with a coral lip color since trying out the Pink Coral and Rich Wine is a color that is so nice on it's own that I don't need anything else over it.

Maybelline Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liners are color coordinated to pair with Maybelline's Color Sensational Lip Color collection. It's super simple to create complementary lip looks with a matching Color Sensational Lip Color or you can go for bold definition by pairing up contrasting shades together. Layering coordinating lip colors is a terrific way to create richer and longer lasting lip looks while also bringing out the true depth of color. And one of the easiest ways to adjust your lip color is by using a lip liner whether you looking to tone down a vibrant shade or give some pop to a neutral.

Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipsticks are infused with nourishing honey nectar for a velvety texture and moisturizing feel on the lips. The collection includes shades that range from neutral to "bold/audacious" in both satin and matte finishes. Totally Toffee and Toasted Truffle have been my favorite combination for that every day lips but better look and I also really like Magnetic Mauve and Warm Me Up for a more muted lip look when I play up my eye and face makeup. The Color Sensational lip colors have a creamy consistency with semi-opaque coverage and a lightweight feel. They're not drying and comfortable to wear. Lasting power is only a few hours before reapplication is required. I don't really care for the artificial vanilla scent of these lipsticks but at least it's not all that strong.

Maybelline Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liners make it easy to define your lips, to create shape or definition while extending wear and prevent feathering. At $7.99 each, they're certainly affordable enough to have more than a few.  And they're pretty easy to find as well. Maybelline Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liners are sold at Amazon, Ulta, Target, Walmart, and most major drugstore chains.

Although I don't wear lip liner all of the time, I do have a few in my beauty arsenal that I like. The Wild Violets and Dusty Rose colours from Maybelline are lovely--it's nice that they can be easily paired also with contrasting colours. Have a great start to the new week, Rowena.

Lip liner is one of the things I really should use, but rarely do. Part of the reason is I don't have all the colors I need to match my lipsticks, so I guess I should take a closer look at these offerings.

The color range is amazing and I have already bought a few, color wise they are fantastic but I find them a tiny bit too soft for my liking.

Oh, how neat! Many people fill lips with liners then wear lipsticks over, which I think is less drying than using matte liquid lip colors for instance. All colors look pretty and wearable.

I do agree. Lip liners make such a difference. I don't use a lot of make up products, but I never use a lipstick (or a lip gloss) without using a lip liner. I'm really happy I started using lip liners because they do make every lipstick look better and last longer.

Wonderful swatches and reviews. There are so many shades available. It is amazing.

Gabrielle said...

Magnetic Mauve liner and Warm Me Up lipstick make such a beautiful duo! It looks like an entirely wearable, flattering everyday combination. Thanks for the introduction to this collection Rowena!

I don't actually use liners very much, but I do own one of these (I think it's the magnetic mauve). The swatches are so vibrant.
