Dare to Whisper: Maybelline Color Whisper by Color Sensational Review, Swatches

I first tried Maybelline’s new Color Whisper lip colors a few months ago, and I’ve been hooked ever since! I just added three more shades to my growing collection, so let’s check them out!

Lust for Blush, Oh La Lilac, A Plum Prospect

Color Whisper by Color Sensational is a new collection of lip colors from Maybelline that have a unique, lightweight formula with pure color pigments suspended in a translucent gel base. Available in 20 shades, the shades are clear and light, with the perfect whisper of color. All of the colors are so soft and beautiful, and flattering on a variety of skin tones.

The best part about these to me, is the softness and the hydration. Color Whisper contains nourishing honey nectar to encourage softer lips, and the weightless gel adds plenty of shine. I know some parts of the country are still experiencing freezing temperatures, so these will be a great lip color choice for parched winter-weather lips. 

To me, Color Whisper is a hybrid formula—a little bit like a lipstick, lip balm, and lip gloss. The color usually lasts around three hours for me, but that’s completely dependent on what I’m doing (eating, drinking, etc). I don’t really detect flavor or fragrance, so I know that will make a lot of people happy. Color Whisper feels super buttery, and glides across my lips with ease. It’s definitely one of my favorite new releases of the year so far! They retail for around $7.49 each, and can be found at most drugstores and mass retailers.

Try this…

One of my favorite lip tips (and one that will pair nicely with a Color Whisper shade), is a simple exfoliation trick you can do at home with two basic ingredients you likely have in your kitchen. Take a pinch of granulated sugar, with a few drops of olive oil, and combine them in the palm of your hand. Then, gently apply it to your lips with light friction, and wah-lah! Flake-free, soft lips ready for your favorite Color Whisper lip color.
