Simply Lippy Challenge Day 190 | Maybelline Colour Drama Intense Lip Paint in Shade 120, Fight Me Fuchsia

Maybelline lip paints have become one of the big surprises of my challenge so far; I previously tried two shades with today being my third, and though I wasn’t blown away by the first two shades, I am really starting to love their formula.


Of the two shades I’ve tried up to now, Never Bare, and Stripped Down, the later was probably my preference because it was a richer, caramel shade whereas Never Bare was a super pale pink, and not my usual shade of choice. However, today’s shade is now by far, my favourite!

Maybelline describes this lippy as intense lip paint and that is the perfect description of you ask me. The colour and pigment is incredibly intense and bold, and the fuchsia pink colour is just gorgeous.


I love the richness and brightness of the shade which completely pops the minute you apply it. It’s certainly not for the faint hearted, but I’ve been never one to shy away from a bold lip, and have to say, I am loving it!


The formula itself is creamy which I love, and while I don’t think it’s particularly moisturising, it’s definitely not drying and does feel lovely to wear.


This is the kind of lip colour that would be fab for a sunny, boozy lunch with the girls, or a night out on the tiles, and I’m just a little bit disappointed I didn’t have anything fancy on tonight to wear it to! 


As it’s a Sunday night, it’s a night in on the couch for me and my pink lip. But, next time I wear this, I’ll make sure I’m out doing something fabulous!

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 166 | Maybelline Intensive Lip Paint in Shade 110, Never Bare

I first wore one of these lip paints from Maybelline a few weeks back, and today I tried out my second shade from the range.


When I first bought these, I had no idea what they would be like, but after being impressed by both the creaminess and the pigment the first time around, I decided to buy a few more shades and see how they lived up to the first one, Stripped Down.


Once again, I’m very impressed by the pigment on these lippies; the opaque finish gives full coverage to the lips and the colour pay off is just brilliant.


Today’s shade, Never Bare, is a bright pink shade which I thought would be more of a rose nude from the look of the packaging, but when I applied it, it was much more ‘pink’ than I had expected.


There’s nothing wrong with the shade per se, it’s just that as many of you guys know already, I’m not that into pink in general. While I do like some pink shades, this one is not really my thing and for that reason, I probably wouldn’t wear it again.


However, when it comes to the formula, I do really like it; it’s creamy and glides on to the lips so easily using the angled sponge applicator which I’m also a big fan of. The staying power is also really good so you won’t have to worry about reapplying this too often throughout the day either.


There are lots of gorgeous shades in this range and I’ll definitely be buying some more to try because I have a feeling the bolder colours will be insane in this formula. As I’ve only tried lighter shades up to now, I’m excited to find out what the others are like.
