You don’t come across them often.
In fact, it’s more rare than a 99-percent off everything sale at your favorite department store. That’s right, it just doesn’t happen.
So when I came across a brand, new lipstick display at Target – untouched by dirty fingers and chapped lips – I pounced on it before the red-shirted salesperson could finish setting it up!
Yet my excitement was tempered with the fact I’ve never had much luck with discount and drug store brands. I find their formulas to be either too dry or oily, and the colors to have little or no staying power.
I should have taken the pristine display as a hint that my luck had changed, because I am loving Maybelline’s Color Sensational lip colors!
Glides on smoothly, great color payoff and a variety of gorgeous shades that will make you think you’re in a department store. I picked Broadway Bronze and Mauve-ulous. But I wish I’d also bought the colors I waffled and then passed on.
So if you’re pocketbook isn’t quite up to a M.A.C. attack, definitely give one of these color-rich lippies a try.
