Product Review: Maybelline New York Color Whispers

I am a little late with posting about these, but life with a small baby keeps me a little busy… Anyway, here are my thoughts on the *Maybeline New York Color Whispers;

What They Say:
Maybelline New York Color Whisper is a sheer and subtle lip colour that leaves lips shiny, featuring flexible gel and silicone oils. The pure colour pigments are dispersed through the gel formula that offers translucent colour. The lipstick is packaged in a slim case and comes in eight different shades.

RRP: $14.95 – Available from Priceline, selected pharmacies, department stores, variety stores and supermarkets

What I Say:

The Maybelline New York Color Whispers come in a selection of 8 different shades;

L-R: 25, 55, 65, 45, 40, 60, 90, 95

25 - Lust for Blush (Dusty Rose)

55 - One Size Fits Pearl (Sheer Pearlescent)

65 - Pink Possibilities (Bright Pink)

45 - Who Wore It Red-Er (Red)

40 - Orange Attitude (orange)

60 - Petal Rebel (Medium Pink)

90 - Oh La Lilac (Lilac)

95 - Mad for Magenta (Magenta/Fuchsia)

They Color Whispers have a gentle scent, which reminds me a little of vanilla, and they come in a modern case with a transparent lid, which has the colour of the actual lipstick, and this makes it so easy to find the shade you are looking for – especially if you’re lucky and like me have a selection of the colours. I personally like most of the colours, but my favourite is Who Wore It Red-Er.

The actual lipstick are more like lip butters than lipsticks, although they do have more pigmentation. On the lips they feel like lipbalm, so soft, smooth and very moisturising. It has a fairly good wear of a few hours – although more for the darker colours, which naturally have a better pigmentation – and even when it has worn off, my lips feel soft and moisturised.

With a baby and not much time to apply my makeup, lately I’ve been wearing more casual makeup, and also a lot more lipglosses than lipsticks – but these Colour Whispers will be perfect for a daytime casual look.

 What I Like:
  • The nice selection of colours – there should be one for everyone!
  • The price
  • Easy to apply
  • They feel so lovely to wear

What I Don’t Like:
  • I really cannot think of any negatives about these Color Whispers

Overall, I really like these Color Whispers, they feel so comfortable to wear and compared to a lipgloss, they give your lips little more colour, yet is not as heavy as a normal lipstick.

  1. The seem lovely and moisturising on the lips, but the pigmentation looks a little weak for some of the shades :o) Xx

    1. Yes, they are very moisturising on the lips, almost like a lip balm, and as for the colours, yes, they are very sheer, but guess that's only to be expected with a name like Colour Whisper!
