Sneak Peek: Maybelline New York Color Whisper Lip Colour Coming in January

by Janine on 23 October 2012 · 21 comments

Revlon ColorStay Lip Butter, Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine, L’Oréal Paris Colour Caresse by Colour Riche Lipstick… and now Maybelline New York adds to the growing category of wonderfully weightless, ultra-smooth, sheer, softly glossy hydrating lipsticks that feel like light balms on the lips.

Maybelline New York Color Whisper by ColorSensational ($9.99) is so new that the only complete set in Toronto is the one you see at the photo above, at Maybelline makeup pro Grace Lee’s station backstage at World Mastercard Fashion Week.

For her strut down the Pink Tartan Spring 2013 runway last night, Maybelline New York muse Charlotte Free (top photo) wore Maybelline New York Color Whisper in Petal Rebel (above right), with Color Whisper in Pin Up Peach (above left) tapped on top in the centre of the lower lip.

Oooh. It looks amazing. Did you try it? Will it replace Baby Lips as your number one? Which is your favourite? (January? I want it to be January now.)

I haven’t tried it myself yet — and there were too many people around for me to sweep the collection into my bag and run away!

As where I could have 15 bold pink lipsticks and still want more, I have a couple of sheer glosses/sticks/balms and I find that’s enough. I want to spend money on COLOUR!!!!! But if I didn’t have any sheers, I think I would be all over this.

Guess what, lovely — Maybelline is also launching a line of Vivid lipsticks in January! Stay tuned! (How much do I love that you could have 15 bold lipsticks and still want more???)

Off topic but….I love Charlotte’s pink ombre hair! So cute.

Oh goodie. Sheer lippies are right down my alley. Now the waiting game begins!

I spotted these at target today. They must not been out long because not one was missing! I got cherry on top which is almost an exact dupe to loreal blushing sequin and la la lilac which is a close dupe to revlon gumdrop. They honestly feel like a mix between those 2 formulas. Not as creamy as lip butter but not as light as the loreals.


Janine 26 December 2012 at 11:17 am

I haven’t actually had a chance to try one yet; thanks for the tip! This whole lipstick-balm thing is such a growing category in lip colour, right? Feels like everyone’s doing one now. Kind of like BB creams… *grin*
