Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks collection – Swatches and Review

I might have gone a little over board with my shopping at Olive Young store. The reason being the ongoing 50% off sale. Maybelline is one of my favorite drugstore brands for lipsticks and I think they have really nice shades in their Color Sensational collection. It is very well organized shade wise and the colors pay off is super impressive. My first Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick was Splendor Plum which I think I bought in the fall of 2011. I have been hooked ever since.

So right now, I have 5 shades from the line and it seems like Maybelline is going to revamp the line. I see different shades in the US and I expect those to hit the Korean stores soon; maybe by the beginning of fall.

Toffee cream (B43) is a beige-nude. It is your-lips-but-better shade in my opinion.
Chestnut (B41) is a pinkish-nude. It give the illusion of healthy looks. It is probably my favorite nude color ever.
Pink Peach (P32) is blue-ish peachy pink shade. It does not suit me at all without a pink lipliner. It will look good only on lighter skintones and also less-pigmented lips.
Soft Azalea(PC41) is bright fuscia. I am in love with this shade. It took me some tie to get used to this shade on my face as it is the brightest boldest pink I have ever worn but I love it so much now that it is my go to special-occasions-pink.
Splendor Plum(118) I have had this shade for a couple of years and I am going to get rid of it soon but it was my darkest shade then. It is a very flattering plum shade for fall and I think will suit all skin types.

Which one is your favorite shade out of the Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks?
