Getting glossy: Maybelline Colorsensational Cream Gloss in 'Coral Blush'

 Good morning everyone!

Today I thought I'd do a follow on post from my previous post, where I decided to give lipstick a miss for a while and see if I could find some lip glosses that would work better for me and I certainly have with maybelline's colour sensational cream gloss! 

It was a very reasonable price at £6.19 from Boots, which I think will turn out to be great value for money as the tube looks like it will last a very long time. I got it in 415 coral blush, as I wanted a quite casual pinky colour to wear mainly in the day time and I must say I absolutely love it! It's perfect for day time wearing when your on the go, as the pointed sponge applicator means you can put it on easily and evenly in seconds and even without a mirror when you're out and about. 

The main thing I love about this lip gloss is the colour and consistency of the gloss, as it looks exactly the same on your lips as it does in the tube due to it's thick and creamy consistency, whereas some lip glosses can really thin out on your lips and not create much colour at all. 

 You can also easily build up layers of the gloss for a bolder colour or just use one thin application for a more subtle look.

And this is the overall effect of my rosy lipped day time look...

The only negative I do have is that the gloss doesn't really last that long, so if you want it on all day you will have to keep applying it. However I prefer to keep applying or just let it fade away, rather than using long lasting lipstick and glosses that disappear on the inside of your lips when you eat or drink and leave you with that dreaded ring of colour around the outside of your lips. So until I find a product that lasts all day on 100% of my lips, even when your eating and drinking, I'll be sticking to this lip gloss :)

Have any of you tried this product? Do you prefer lipstick or lip gloss? 

I Hope you are all having a lovely week! I'm very excited as I've got the opening night of King Lear tonight- wish me luck!

Love Meg


  1. I love this colour, suits you a lotttt! and I'm soooo in love with your hair!!!

    LoveFaye xoxo

  2. I dont really like lip gloss much but the colour is so pretty! You look gorgeous btw!

  3. Faye- I'm glad you like it and thank you very much! I worry so much about my hair and spend way too much money trying to get it how I want it lol so it's lovely to hear compliments about it :)

    Zoe- yeahh I think the colour is the best thing and that's so lovely, thank you :)


  4. Try Lipcote, it keeps lipstick on your lips even if you drink/eat/kiss! haha i'm not a fan of lipglosses myself but the No7 ones have to be my favourite, not sticky and lovely colours :) You look beautiful! Your hair looks so healthy and shiny :)

  5. ooo I'm defo going to try that, where do you get it from? hmm I may also look into the No7 ones as I have many vouchers! aww thanks very much, it's good to hear my hair is looking healthy, I've been dying and straightening too much at the moment, so I've been treating it to lots of deep conditionings! xxx

  6. Thanks so much for your sweet comment,always so lovely to read. Such a gorgeous colour,sweet candy pinks are my favourite coloured glosses so cute x
    Hope your having a wonderful week too x

  7. I think this colour looks really nice on you (and yeah I know loads of people who swear by lipcote, so check it out!) I prefer lipstick personally, but then my lips tend to dry out, so I stick to lipbalm - such is life! x

  8. I have this lipgloss too! I totally agree with everything you've said about it.I've had mine for ages and still have loads left :)
    I got a no7 lipgloss yesterday as I've had so many of the vouchers from boots! The one I got is a fairly simnilar colour to this although a tiny bit more brown and its gorgeous - it conditions your lips and has spf in it and the applicater brush is perfect, really small and precise, so I'd highly recommend checking out one of theirs :D
    Good luck with King Lear,I've been studying that text on my course :)
