Do you every find a beauty product that you totally love but didn’t even know you needed it until you had it? Well I found that recently with a lipstick that I stumbled upon during my lipstick drawer organization (which you can see here). I didn’t know I was a fan of mauve lipstick until now, but now I can’t imagine my world without such a great mauve lip colour!
Maybelline New York ColorSensational LipColor in Magnificent Mauve is the prettiest mauve lipstick I have ever seen. I didn’t even know what mauve was until I got this beauty. The colour is fantastic and has an ‘almost everyday but not quite‘ kind of feel to it.
Magnificent Mauve is a blue toned shade that has just the right combination of purple and pink to make the pretty mauve shade. On my tanned skin it looked more towards the purple side, where as when my Mom tried it on her lighter skin it looked more like a dusty rose pink shade.
This lipstick is just what I have been looking for since I can get away with it on a normal day at the office, but it also has a little more interest to it. The mauve hue makes it look like and edgy purple lipstick but super toned down. I’m the only one of my friends who would wear this, but it isn’t too out there that I look crazy. This shade is the perfect combination of unique yet still wearable, and I will definitely be reaching for it frequently this summer.
