Maybelline Shine Sensational Lip Gloss in Peach Sorbet, taken on top of the ad in People StyleWatch March 2010 issue. My lips did not look at all like the models but the results were "real life" good!
During Fashion Week, Maybelline reps handed out free samples of some of their new products each day in the tents, so you know I stopped by every chance I could to get my freebie. My favorite product was probably the new Maybelline Shine Sensational Lip Gloss which I tested in Peach Sorbet. It's a fruity, glassy gloss that goes on smooth, not sticky, and lasts until your next meal (no way around that!).
While it looks NOTHING like the ads (see photos), it's still a really great gloss. My only complaint is that there's hardly any pigmentation. It's practically colorless. The packaging is adorable and young as are all the other 15 odd flavors, so it's not as chic as some glosses, just a fun, yummy product that won't dry your lips and will add great shine over lipstick or lips filled in with a pencil. Priced at $6, I'd recommend waiting for a sale at your local drugstore or using a coupon, then go for it. I plan on buying another flavor next time I see it on sale.
Close up of the applicator and how it looks on skin. Sorry, I couldn't take a decent photo of the gloss on my own lips, I tried!
