Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in 240 Galactic Mauve

I just love this shade, it's a obvious mauve tone and has the most pretty luminous micro gold sparkle to it. The texture also happens to be silky smooth, glide on lipstick style, the casing is also very... shall I say 'Posh' for Maybelline.  

Ok, there I'm getting on it, there's a big fat downside to this 'would of been a lovely lipstick' if it didn't reek of play-doh and taste oh so bitter. I'm not sure if I can get past it, Play-Doh really shouldn't be near the lips. These lipsticks are apparently enriched with honey nectar, so I was expecting a sort of honey scent, never this. I've seen a few other reviews comment about the bad taste/smell and in my opinion they're right. 


My first ever lipstick that was not kiddie style was from Maybelline and I always had a place in my heart for their lipsticks but this has definitely disappointed me. 


If they did sort out the weird, tasting and smelly lipstick thing, then I would definitely be purchasing more Colorsensational lipsticks but until then, no thank you.


RRP is around £6.99




Purchased at Superdrug

  2. No not at all haha. I love it when a lipstick smells yummy, but I seriously never got this one at all. XD

  3. Do you think that's the same as the american one named Madison Mauve? I'm guessing that they may have different names in the UK and USA? If so, I like the color :)

  4. Phyrra- More than likely, because I don't think we have Madison Mauve over here, it's kind of annoying though when they change shade names for different parts of the world. xx

  5. I found a swatch of me wearing it, it's been so long I'd forgotten what it looked like on the lips!

  6. Looks similar, but I guess we will never know unless we have both lipsticks. Looks really pretty on you by the way! :D x

  8. It's a pretty shade; I definitely like it. I've never tried these lipsticks before, but I'm rather tolerant when it comes to cosmetics with offensive odors (like Tarte lip / cheek stains, they taste pretty nasty).

  10. I have this one, along with Ambre Rose and I love them both completely. The gold in this one is just so pretty.

    I have a poor sense of smell, lol, so very little bothers me ;)

  11. Katie- I've never tried anything from Tarte but the cheek stains look good though. Mostly all stains do taste weird that I've tried. x

    SilhouetteScreams- LOL! XD

    Small Town Gal- Hmm, maybe some of them are more offensive than others. :)

  12. Beautiful color!! I generally don't mind a not so pleasant scent, but I can't stand it when a lip product tastes bad!!

  13. I agree, as most scents tend to go away. Although this took a long time for me. Even if you don't lick your lips much you're still going to taste it when eating/drinking. x
