Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Gloss Review + On Lip Swatches

Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Glosses

From left: Electric Shock, Raspberry Reflections, Gleaming Grenadine, Captivating Coral

Price/Quantity: $5-7 for 5ml

Availability: Drugstores, Target, Walmart, Ulta, Fred Meyer

Color Range: 12 Shades

Color/Texture:

  • Electric Shock is a bubble gum pink.
  • Raspberry Reflections is a berry pink.
  • Gleaming Grenadine is a candy apple red.
  • Captivating Coral is a light tangerine.

None of these shades is shimmery but when I look at these up close I can see that there are some sparsely scattered sparkles in the tube which are not visible on the lips. The formula is thin and non-sticky but the color payoff is fantastic. They can be applied sheerly or built up to be nearly opaque without feeling goopy.

Longevity: The shine lasts a maximum of 2 hours and after that a stain is left on the lips for another hour or so. These will not last during a meal or cup of coffee. I wore Gleaming Grenadine during dinner and by the end of the meal the gloss and stain had completely worn off.

Smell/Taste: The smell and taste of these is somewhat citrusy and remind me of the scent of the Fusion plumping lip glosses. It’s not very strong and it fades within minutes of applying.

Packaging: These look slick but they scratch so easily. I haven’t even thrown them in my purse yet and they somehow already have scratches on them. They have a slanted doe-foot applicator that picks up just the right amount of gloss.

Would I buy these again? Yes! These have such a comfortable texture and great color payoff that I am thinking of trying some of the other shades in this line.

    Thanks for swatching all of these. I wanted to get an idea of what they looked like and they all look great on you. I think I’ll run out and buy some of them since they are on sale right now at RiteAid. Thanks!
