My Favorite Lipglosses: Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Gloss

All products shown in this post were purchased by me.

Prior to now, if I had to choose, I'd probably say Revlon Super Lustrous Lipglosses were my favorite lipgloss formula. Honestly there really hasn't been a stand out favorite for me in the lipgloss category. I have a ton of them and there are pros and cons to every line. Really I've been kinda 'meh' about lipgloss in the past, until I met my new favorite, that is...

The colors I've noted are LE (limited edition) above are from Maybelline's new spring collection called Color Goes Electric. Basically, go out and look for this collection right now! Ignore the permanent line and search for these limited edition colors, because they have a very nice color selection and I don't know how much longer they'll be available.

First, can we talk about how gorgeous that packaging is? It's so gleaming and mirror like! There's no text or wrappings mucking up the view on this gorgeous gloss. It looks very high end to me, I love it!

Now for swatches!

The best thing about these glosses are the awesome colors and the opacity. I mean there are a couple sheer ones like Striking Peach & Knockout Pearl, but the rest are all full-on, bold color that applies so smooth and opaque. Do you see how the color keeps going even down toward the end of the swatch? I just basically drag the doefoot applicator across my arm to swatch, and where most lipglosses would be petering out in color, these are still going. It's awesome!

The second thing I love about these are the texture. The texture is somewhat thick and they feel so smooth and plush on the lips. You can really feel the gloss when you rub your lips together and it feels so good! Some people have mentioned these have a graininess to them, which I find to be somewhat true, but it doesn't bother me in the least. I think they're slightly grainy because they are so pigmented. 

The lasting power of these glosses is truly phenomenal! They stay shiny and colorful for hours. They really cling to the lips and that's another reason I find them to be the best lipglosses I've ever tried. They do have a mild fruit punch type of scent. 

Have you tried any of these yet? If not, grab some ASAP! :)
