I was so excited to try these new lipsticks. I am a big fan of Maybelline’s Color Sensational Matte lipsticks so my expectations were set high. The shade I chose was Copper Rose, as I think it looked the prettiest when I swatched them at the store, and I thought it would make a lovely Fall shade. Some of their other shades like Copper Spark, White Gold, Pure Gold, Copper Spark, and Hot Lava I did not try.
Unfortunately, the formula of this lipstick wasn’t up to the standards of its cousins. The Copper Rose shade, I can’t speak of the shades I didn’t try, was very patchy. I had to apply multiple layers to make it work. Also, it is definitely not matte, it doesn’t dry as matte as other matte lipsticks. Although I loved the shade and the way it looked, it was too much work as I am an apply-lipstick-on-way-to-door kind of person.
