Lipstick review Maybelline ‘Cherry Candy’

I love a red lipstick, I’m pale and I think my face needs a splash of colour! I love to achieve this splash with red lipstick, so over the years I have bought many from so many different companies, high street, budget and designer. I don’t really care about packaging, names or make. I just care about the texture, colour and last!
So Maybelline Colour Sensation ‘cherry candy’ lipstick. What do I think of it? Well, it’s a lovely bright red, it feels nice on your lips, but to be honest, I like my lipsticks quite dense and dry. This is light and moisturising. It has a glossy look, so if you want a glossy red with a bit of a shimmer. It really is lovely. It’s quite summery, quite a natural red. It’s really pretty, but it’s not a vibrant vintage red, it’s a glossy natural type red.
It lasted well and was comfortable. It wore off nicely, but it was not as dramatic as I wanted it. It shimmered but only a tiny amount (which is good!).
It’s a nice a lipstick, great for the money, really pretty, but it’s not for a vintage girl wanting a sharp red, but then it’s not meant to be. It’s really pretty, for me, it’s a Sunday morning lipstick! Lovely and a good price!
See it here!
