Drugstore Finds: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Coral Crush*

Maybelline - Coral Crush - Tube

I got this tube of Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick from the October box that the folks at BDJ were kind enough to send me. 🙂 It’s in Coral Crush, which if you have been following my blog for a while, isn’t a shade I would normally pick out for myself. Mostly because it is quite warm and orange-y. That color just doesn’t work for me.

As far as drugstore lipsticks go, though, these ones by Maybelline are part of the “great quality” bunch. In this swatch, marvel at how opaque the coverage is with just two swipes! Coral Crush is a coral that leans warmer and orange-y, which is not something that is flattering on myself. I think it accentuates the yellow tones in my skin:

Because of the slip of these lipsticks, they may go on a little patchily, especially if you have dry flakes. I am not a fan of the scent either. In general, though, if you are looking for a top-notch lipstick at a drugstore price, these might be for you. I should mention that the shade range is quite fantastic as well.

Maybelline is not cruelty-free.

  1. I have this color as well from a previous BDJ Box. I have a better one this time. The smell is repulsive! But I do like its texture so I kept it.

  2. I used to be afraid of warm, orangey-coral lipsticks too, but now I can’t get enough of them! This one looks fabulous on you 🙂
