Maybelline Color Blur First Impression Review
I recently picked up the Maybelline Color Blur lipstick and I was curious to see how it would apply and hold up through a First Impression review. I picked “I like to Mauve It,” a color that I thought looked like a great everyday color.
The Maybelline Color blur retails around $8 and it is a two sided lip color. One end is the lip color and on the other is the blender/smudger which is made of plastic, to help blend for the ombre look.
In the photos I think that the ombre application looks unfinished, but I wanted to try it out for my self.
Here’s how it looks with the suggested application. I applied it to the middle and used the other end to blend out for the “ombre” affect. I think it looks a little undone this way and I didn’t like how it looked, just as I predicted.
I preferred using the lip color just like a normal lipstick and filling in my entire lips. I really enjoyed the outcome with this application.
2 Hours later
They do not claim that this is a long lasting color, but I wanted to see how it would hold up throughout the day anyway. After a few hours and eating a bit of greasy food, this is how the lip color looked.
For the most part the color stayed in place except for the inner parts of my lips and I found that it wasn’t drying at all. I touched up one last time and decided to check in again later.
About 7 hours later, you can still color on my lips but at this point it faded and it was a little drying.
Pros: Easy to apply, smooth velvet finish, long lasting, reapplying is easy and the product is unscented.
Cons: The smudger wasn’t useful, towards the end of the day my lips became dry and I’d like to see more colors added to the line.
