Maybelline ColorSensational Lip Stain in In The Buff

This is my very first experience with lip stains - ever. I purchased this at WalMart a couple months ago but i loved it so much i knew i had to do a buy more, lol. I really don't like lipsticks or even glosses that much, and i only own a small handful of each. However, these lip stains are great! *Photos are mine.
This particular lip stain marker is Maybelline's ColorSensational in In The Buff (05). It actually the lightest shade i found and still slightly dark - if you ask me. When i think of a 'buff' or nude shade i think of them to be neutral and light. This, however, is a sort of rosey pink shade if you ask me.
easy to apply
opaque color
no heavy or sticky feeling - basically feels like bare lips
smells really good and fruity
travel friendly
long lasting
didnt need to reapply all night
gave my lips a healthy flush and that 'just bitten' look
marker tip is a little rough, but not too bad
shade was alot darker than i expected according to shade/name
Overall i really like this lip stain marker! I was always scared to try them before because im like... "ok if i put this on and hate it, theres no turning back, my lips will be stained for hours!" but now i dont feel that way. I picked the lightest shade WalMart had to offer in their Maybelline ColorSensational section and i have been wearing it underneath my new CoverGirl NatureLuxe gloss balm in Marble (zero color payoff, basically just a sheer gloss) and the two work really nicely together!
Would i buy more? Yes! I am going to check out some more shades and see if there are any i may like (from Maybelline and other brands that sell lip stains).
Have you ever tried these? I would like to know what you thought or if you have any tips/suggestions for me. Thanks!

  1. That's a pretty color, it reminds me of Orgasm blush by Nars but in lip form. I've never tried this but I'll add it to my wishlist.
