@Maybelline Color Whisper by Color Sensational


Now that spring is here, I’ve traded in my deep, matte lipsticks for lighter and brighter lippies. Although I love a matte lip, I have not abandoned more moisturizing formulas. Speaking of mois-tur-i-zing, I had the chance to try the Maybelline “Color Whisper” Lip Color by Color Sensational. Let me tell you all how difficult it was to find even half of the 20-color collection in stock in a physical store. I’m convinced there is a Color Whisper monster taking the collection off the shelves in the middle of the night. Clearly the Color Whisper collection is a popular one. Luckily, I was able to pick up a few shades to see what all the hype was about.


Think of “Color Whisper” as a lip balm, lip tint, and a lipgloss hybrid–packaged in a lipstick tube. It has such a lightweight formula that I completely forgot I had any product on my lips. The application was smooth like butter–or in this case, a weightless gel. (I’m sure the Jojoba oil and shea butter have something to do with this.) While it gives you a “whisper” of color, the coverage and color are buildable. The pigmentation from these Color Whispers was particularly surprising. After one application, I achieved the perfect intensity.

Here’s what I purchased:
“Lust for Blush” – a soft, pale pink

“Who Wore it Red-er” – a pinkish red

“Berry Ready” – a true berry

In my experience, if you want an extremely moisturizing lip color, you have to sacrifice longevity. That was not the case here. I didn’t find myself reapplying any of the 3 shades, incessantly. They stayed on for hours. With Color Whisper, digging through my bag in search of my lip balm is unnecessary. Color Whisper is pretty much an all-in-one moisturizing lip color.

From nudes to oranges and reds, the Color Whisper by Color Sensational collection is extensive. With 20 colors to choose from, I’m sure you will find the ideal shade or shades for you. If you’re feeling creative, make your own customized shade by applying 2 or more of the Color Whisper shades. (My trademark lip is a combination of colors.) If you’re someone who is tentative about true lipsticks, Color Whisper is a great start.
