Makeup Mayfest Day 6

Have I admitted yet that I unhealthy obsession with drugstore lippies.
 
Step 1: Admitting I have a problem.
 
Step 2: Stop buying lip products
 
hmmmm, I will think about it.
 
I picked up these new Maybelline Whispers at Ulta this week and I need to play
with them more, but I've been kind of disappointed with them despite all the hype.
 
Maybelline describes the newly released lip whisper as:
"Sexy, soft see through color with no heavy waxes or oils. Just a kiss of shine."
 
 
 
Top color is Petal Rebel (a blue toned bright baby pink)
Bottom color is Lust for Blush ( a pinkish mauve)

This are definitely what they claim to be... a very sheer wash of color. I chose
to pick up pink shades because I feel that is the color I lack the most of and wanted
something soft and sheer for when I want a dark smoky eye.
 
I have worn these to work and with my current tan less skin I felt
pretty washed out. I like my lipstick and I like my color. I think I will appreciate using
these more at night with heavier bronzer and eye makeup and playing my lips down.
 
They do have a great texture as they are a gel formula. Very lightweight and smooth on the lips.
 
If you are into sheer lippies or glosses I think you will love these. They also
have some brighter colors that will probably have more pigmentation if you are looking
for something that pops a little more.
 
Stay tuned for more drugstore lippie posts.
They seem to be my thang right now.
 
Have you tried Maybelline Whispers?

  2. I suck at makeup. I wear moisturizer, foundation primer, foundation, concealer if necessary, powder, blush, mascara, and sometimes eye shadow. I use the exact same stuff EVERY DAY. I never wear lipstick, but I'm addicted to chapstick. I need to branch out, but I am horrible at applying makeup! Ugh :/

What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
