Maybelline Color Whisper: Who Wore It Red-er and Oh La Lilac


          Today, I have two of the new Maybelline Color Whisper "lipsticks" to share with you. Maybelline describes these as pure color pigments suspended in a weightless gel. I think that's pretty spot on. 

Bare Lips



       For a point of reference, these are my bare lips. I didn't want to change the look or feel of the lip glazes so I didn't apply chapstick or liner. For normal wear, I would have used both. Especially in this cold weather.

        This is my favorite of the two. I was expecting a much redder  color, but I'm happy with the outcome. It's very wearable. With a red liner and base, this reads much differently. 



Oh La Lilac

        I was disappointed by this one. The color just doesn't do it for me and it didn't give me the color pay off I was hoping for. I think it doesn't work well with my natural lip color. 




Who Wore It Red-er (L) and Oh La Lilac (R)

Pros:
  • Light fruity smell and minimal taste
  • 20 shades to chose from
  • Easy application
  • Low price point: I paid $6 USD at Target.
  • Super glossy finish and build-able color
  • Convenient and attractive packaging 
Cons:
  • Not long lasting

          What do you think? Oh La Lilac just isn't for me. I'm still on the look out for the perfect lilac to suit my skin tone. Since swatching these, I've worn Who Wore It Red-er several times. It's great for every day looks since it isn't as intense as my full coverage lipsticks. If you haven't tried these yet, definitely pick one up! For $6, it's well worth a shot.

  1. I like them both but lilac looks weird on me usually. That red is definitely my colour and I really appreciate the comparison to your bare lips, thanks!
