Maybelline Color Sensational - Porcelain collection

Last week, I saw a Maybelline stand that says Limited Edition at Walgreens. This Maybelline collection consists of porcelain tones and looks so dainty! Even the texture of the lipstick caps feel like precious porcelain and has the color of lavender frost.

Left: nude nuances, right: afternoon tea

I purchased two shades out of the five that were there. The shades I purchased were Nude Nuances and Afternoon Tea. I love the name of Afternoon Tea!
Nude nuance is a light baby pink with a sheen glow.
Afternoon tea is a mauvy pink also with a sheen.

Both applied very nicely and is fairly pigmented. They have the usual lipstick scent but that doesn't bother me too much since it leaves quite quickly. I was so focused on the color upon application that I didn't notice the scent. It was not until after I smelled it to report the scent did I find it smelled like traditional lipstick.
Anyway, I love the look it gives my lips! I have somewhat pigmented lips and Afternoon Tea just gives it that "My lips but better" look plus a side of dewy-ness! Nude nuance gave me a soft baby lips look. I really love them both :)

 Unfortunately, the display says these are limited edition. If you like natural, healthy looking lips I would go and grab this at Walgreens ASAP. Plus, Walgreens has a BOGO 50% off on all Maybelline this week. Good luck.


All products shown here were purchased with my own money and were given my fair and honest opinions


  1. I like afternoon tea (but hope Maybelline would get rid of that smell in their colorsensational line...the high shine formula was fine though)...Let's hope CVS would stock these soon (I usually buy Maybelline there because of the beauty club reward).

    1. Yay to the beauty club reward program at CVS! and the smell is a downside to this lipstick. Anyway, always room for improvement. and I can't get over how cute your icon looks :)

  2. I am totally checking these out at Rite Aid! Love the two you picked!
