I was planning on doing a new releases post based solely on Maybelline because they have so many new products on the market this month it’s actually insane. The only problem with that is that I live in Ireland and so most new releases reach us when they aren’t so new *sigh*. Scratching that plan I’ve decided I would just review these new releases as I find them and so today I bring you a review of the Maybelline Colour Drama Lip Paints.
Now these did take me a while to find and that’s mostly because they have a different name in the US. The are called Color Jolts in the US and I had assumed that they were called the same here in Ireland. They’re not, here in Ireland they have named them colour Drama for some reason. Anyway I picked up two of these because Boots was having a buy one get second half price offer so I said why not. The first shade that I got is 110 Never Bare
This is a gorgeous your lips but better colour, especially if you have a lot of natural pigmentation in your lips like I do. I really like the packaging of this lip paints even though they look small. You get 6.4 mls of product in the tube and my favourite thing about them the sponge applicator. Yes it’s very similar to the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors applicator but I still think it was a good idea that they copied them.
Because the product is quite thick in formulation I think the sponge applicator enables you to apply the right amount of product without getting a thick layer of product onto the lips, which can be quite uncomfortable to wear espically with the darker shades. Speaking of darker shades the second that I got is 370 Vamped Up.
True to the name this is a really intense deep purple shade that looks really vampy when applied onto the lips. Pigmentation is a little bit sheer but if you apply a lip liner under it you should be fine.
As far as I know these cost me 7.99 euros a piece but because of the offer I managed to get them for less than 15 euros. I bought these in Boots but I think you can get anywhere that sells Maybelline at this point.
