Here is a recent lipstick discovery and I am loving it. It is the Maybelline Water Shine Pure lipstick. Continue reading for my quick product review and see swatches!
Maybelline is probably my go-to drugstore brand for lipsticks. They have a wide selection of colors and finishes at affordable price points. I got myself recently a tube from their Water Shine Pure collection.
Maybelline Water Shine Pure Lipstick Product Review
The name of the shade is this weird letter and number combination – MF21. I prefer they name their shades with actual colors or something (like with their Color Sensational line *click for review here*).
The packaging looks nice and simple. It is also sturdy because I dropped it once yet the lipstick bullet remained intact (wheww!). This particular color I got could be deceiving when you first see it from the tube! It seems dark (like cherry red) but surprisingly it was not when I swatched it.
It turned out to be this pretty sheer pink color. It is the type of pink that can be worn during the day because it is just light and not at all flashy. Pigmentation is okay and buildable.
This is how it looks on me. I can sometimes skip applying lip balm when I use this lipstick. It is already moisturizing and does not chap my lips. I like the creamy and soft formulation, as compared to matte ones which can be drying to the lips! Downside to that is it is not long-wearing, maximum of 3 hours and you have to reapply.
I recommend this Maybelline Water Shine Pure lipstick to girls who like sheer, shiny and barely there pink lipsticks that can be worn daily at school or in the office. It is not at all opaque so do not expect this to entirely cover the natural shade of your lips. There are around 10 shades available for the Water Shine Pure lipstick line.
