Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Fifth Ave Fuchsia

I’ve just discovered the Color Sensational range of lipsticks from Maybelline and they’re fantastic! I went on a bit of a buying frenzy last week at Priceline when the 40% off sale was on and picked up quite a few of these.


The shades that I bought are from the normal Color Sensational range and some which are from the Vivids range. Today’s shade, Fifth Ave Fuchsia, is part of the normal range but definitely wouldn’t look out of place next to the Vivid’s because it’s pretty intense!


Why I love them:

  • Firstly, all of the shade’s that I’ve tried so far are pretty opaque and packed with pigment which means intense colour build up without much effort.
  • The texture is gorgeous and feels really comfortable on the lips. It’s not moisturising as such but it doesn’t dry out my lips.
  • They wear really well through out the day. I can usually get at least 4 or 5 hours of solid wear without having to re-touch. Even though there’s minimal fading I do find that, by around the 5th hour, I need to wipe my lipstick off and reapply because I start to get some type of build up that doesn’t look very nice on the lips.


Fifth Ave Fuchsia is a gorgeous bright warm pink that I think is really wearable without being too bright. You all know by now how much I love a bright pink lip so, as much as I know I should have left it at the store, I really couldn’t help myself!

Here’s a comparison with some of the other shades in the Color Sensational range:

I looked through the rest of my collection of pink lippies and I swatched those that seemed the closest. When you take a close look though you can see that none of them are really dupes.

I’ve never really tried Maybelline lipsticks before and now I’m wondering why. If you haven’t already checked these out, I would definitely recommend taking a look!

US price: $7.49/ AUS price: $16.95 (I picked them up for $10.17 during the sale)
