Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick Collection Review X Picture Heavy

Maybelline Color Whisper Collection Lipstick


“Because a whisper can say more than a shout”

If the Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids collection was a bit to bright for you Maybelline’s Color Sensational Color Whisper might be right up your alley!
The Maybelline Color Whisper Collection ($7.49) is an assortment of 20 Whisper Soft pure color pigment shades suspsended in a weightless gel with no heavy waxes or oils. These are very reminiscent of the Revlon Lip Butters, so if you liked those you may very well like these. The colors are clean and light and offer a very natural hint of color depending on how heavily you apply them. Infused with nourishing honey nectar that help keep the lips feeling smooth and soft, the moisture level I have to say is about a 7. I was able to wear these for a long period of time without my lips feeling as if they were becoming dry or chapped.

Maybelline sent over 7 of the 20 Color Whisper colors to try and I must say that out of the ones I received I was very pleased with the color pay off. I’m usually a bright vibrant in your face type of gal when it comes to lip products but it was nice to see and try shades that were softer and still feel like I could really wear them.

1. Some Like it Taupe is darkest of the three nude colors from the collection. In the picture at the top you can see a hint of shimmer in infused within the lipstick. This does show on the lips. I really liked how this went on more as a balm then a lipstick, giving my lips very subtle color and shimmer.

2.Orange attitude is a soft pastel coral toned liptick. While the color in the tube looks a bit bright it doesn’t show that way on your skin. Remember these are “Color Whispers” and the shades are very toned down. I liked how this one gave my lips more of a peachy flesh toned color.

3. Who Wore it Red-er is a watermelon pinkish red. It shows up a lot more pink than it does Red. I think if applied a bit heavier you may start to get more of the reddish color. Even though it wasn’t a true red I still thought it was one of the prettiest out of all the colors I received.

4. Petal Rebel is a very sheer soft pink. Applying it a little heavier really gave my lips a bit more color. While this may be a bit pink on some this is a great color for those who are my complexion or a bit lighter.

5. Rose of Attraction it has a little bit more than Petal Rebel, but it’s a still a very nice natural color for those who want to add a little color to the lips.

6. Ohla Lilac is a soft sheer lavender. It’s not as pink as Petal Rebel but it’s also not too light where you’ll have “Tyrone Biggum” looking lips. This is still a very nice shade for Women of Color around my complexion or a bit lighter.

7. A Plum Prospect is the darkest of the 20 colors. This lipstick gives off just the right amount of pigment to create a nice soft berry toned hue. It does show up a bit brighter then expected but if applied lightly this is still a very nice shade for those looking for something a bit more natural.

Of all the Maybelline Color Whisper colors, “Some Like it Taupe” and “Who Wore It Red-er” were my favorites. There are 13 more colors available so if none of these caught your eye one of them might. Some of these reminded of the lip glosses available from Tarte Cosmetics, very soft and natural. Keep a look out for these and the Vivid collection in your local stores as the Maybelline Color Whisper Collection is set to be released in early January.

Give me your thoughts, which ones did you like the best? Have you spotted any of the Maybelline Color Whispers yet?

    I got the lilac and really like it. Those kinds of pastel cool toned purple and pinks on me get just as much as when I wear neons like nylon lip tar. But I also got the cherry on top one you didn’t get. It looks almost exactly like the loreal blushing sequin which reminds me alot of impassioned. I have to had a pale pink like (barry m babu pink or dollhouse to make it work for me because they pull a little to warm without…don’t ask me why i keep getting them, they always look different in store then when I get home.

    Oooh thanks for the swatches I can’t wait for these to hit my stores. I’ve already started a list of lippies I want to add to my collection! I’m sure to purchase these before the Vivid Collection as they are more work-friendly/appropriate.

    Great review and I love the lip swatches! I bought “A Rose Attraction” tonight and I love it. I love the feel of these lipsticks and they are pretty hydrating! These are really similar to L’Oreal Colour Caresse lipsticks. I like these better though!

    I picked up a couple of these today because I just LOVE Maybelline. I hope they look half as good on me as they do on you. Great swatches!

    I was looking at these today and the only reason I didn’t buy one is that I worried about fragrance. Do you notice any??

    Your review is so real. I bought #40 Organge Attitude. I don’t wear any coral colored lipsticks and this is my first “dare”, but I love the fruity scent so far. I LOVE the color itself but wearing it for the first time, it looks a bit awkward. I’m sure I’ll get used to it. I love how it’s very duey and moisturizing though.

      Thank you so much! I really try to give great in depth reviews with lots of pictures. I wouldn’t want to spend my money on something that just isn’t great. I’m glad this review was helpful!
