Maybelline Porcelains by Color Sensational Collection Lipsticks

On a recent trip to the drugstore, I noticed a new limited edition collection from Maybelline Color Sensational entitled the Porcelains by Color Sensational.  The collection consists of 4 quads and 6 lipsticks.

I purchased two of the lipsticks: Smooth Taupe (860) and Nude Nuances (865), both have a cream formulation (4.2g/.15oz each; Retail $6.99 at my local drugstore).  I was lucky to catch a BOGO 50% off sale on these. 

Left to Right: Smooth Taupe (860) and Nude Nuances (865)
Here are close-ups and swatches of each shade: 

Smooth Taupe (860)
Nude Nuances (865)
Top to Bottom: Smooth Taupe (860), Nude Nuances (865)
Here are the shades applied to my lips:

Smooth Taupe (860)
Nude Nuances (865)
Overall rating:  Booyah!  The shades are well pigmented and creamy.  Typically, I need to nude out my lips when wearing shades this light but this was not the case with these.

Have you tried any of the other shades or shadows from this collection?  I'd love to hear your thoughts on them.


  1. These are so pretty ....loving nude lips at the moment x

  2. I like nude lips also as I prefer to play up my eyes. Thanks for commenting. :)
