Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick B42 Buff

Hello everyone! It's time for another Maybelline lipstick review and this is the Color Sensational B42 Buff. It's a brownish red lipstick that I want to wear if I want to sport a strong lip but feel like a red, or a brown shade is a little too much. I like this color when I'm in the mood for a natural face and eyes but want to add color to my lips. I really love Maybelline Lipsticks because they are affordable and have really great quality! Not to mention that they have a whole lot of colors to choose from you're sure to find a shade or two that you will like. 

The flash on my camera washed the color out big time so looks coraly pink on the bullet so I'm sorry about that. This lipstick is extremely pigmented, creamy, glossy, and moisturizing. I love how velvety it is, it just glides on the lips smoothly. I blotted it with a tissue and there's still enough product left on my lips and the color stays on pretty good. Of course you can build it up if you want to deepen the color up but 2 - 3 coats is really more than enough. The color pay off and staying power is rather good making this product worth every penny. Here are some swatches:

I love how it looks after I blotted it with a tissue as it seems more natural. Not too shiny nor creamy. I tried setting it with a translucent powder for a matte effect and it made it longer staying, it didn't move even after I ate :). Just one thing I don't like it is the smell. It's not a terrible scent but I just don't like it because somehow it made me feel uneasy :(. It's tasteless though and the smell goes away after a few minutes, but may put off those who are not into scented lip products.

I'm not sure if there's a difference in the quality and formulation of Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks released in the States and in the UK which are beautifully packaged compared to those available in Asia. I haven't tried it yet but they look really nice from the outside, so I wonder how they are :D.

My verdict: 4 STARS!!!



  1. Sis I want this :) I'm gonna see if I can get my hands on it!

    1. Pretty, right?! Maybelline has a P50 - P100 off on their lipsticks now so it's the best time to get one :D

  2. Oooo Pretty color! Looks really good on you!
