It’s Throwback Thursday time again! And I want to talk about Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick – Splendor Plum which was released in the fall of 2011 (as far as I remember). But let me tell you what is Throwback Thursday?
Throwback Thursday is a series of posts where I talk about makeup and beauty products I have used in the past, before becoming a beauty blogger. Some of these products may not be available in the market today. This series is my way of looking at the change/growth rate in the beauty world!
I always love Maybelline lipsticks and love their color selection. Amongst the drugstore brands that I have tried, I love Maybelline the best for their awesome Color Sensational lipsticks. They always come up with so many colors that can suit different skintones. There are so many brands that release fewer colors for darker skintones. And even though I am wheatish in complexion, warm toned shades look much better on me.
Color Sensational lipsticks are richly pigmented, have good color payoff, have a variety of shades to choose from for different skintones and also last for a good amount of time on the lips. They are not drying to the lips and never bleed outside the lips or settle into the lines.
This Splendor Plum lipstick is a deep plum shade which I never would have thought of trying. I always wore light pink and brown shades, and this was a huge leap for me. But I loved it. I still wear this color since it is winter and it looks really good even if I do not have any makeup on my face. It just adds a sophisticated glamour to my face!
I absolutely love Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks and plan to try more from the line in the future!
