Anyone who knows me; knows that I am a complete sucker for a great lip-stick or lip gloss!!! Nothing gets my gears going more than make up shopping. So I stumbled upon these beauties in Wal-Mart (Douglasville location). I was doing my usual random browsing and eureka the lip-gloss gods opened up the gates (dramatic yes, but this is how I felt). I was completely taking a chance on this purchase because I had not read any reviews on them or even heard of them for that matter! But geesh when I say I hit the lip-gloss jackpot! Maybelline has totally raised the bar and now I don’t expect them to produce anything less than this quality of glosses. I bought these for about $5 a pop; not bad if you usually purchase high-end! I feel like I totally got my monies worth; low-end price with high-end quality. I got 3 colors for starters. I purchased Raspberry Reflections (purplish), Electric Shock (bright pink), and Captivating Coral. There is no doubt I am going back this weekend for more colors!
All pros, no cons:
- Great application wand
- Great color selections
- Highly pigmented (for Maybelline glosses)
- Decent moisturizing qualities
- Sleek and classy packaging (heavy, glass-like tube w/ silver cap)
- Great price point
- Awesome with or without lipstick
- Shiny; yet non sticky (which I love in a gloss)
Below are the color swatches I did on my hand to show just how pigmented these glosses are.

I had to show you all the packaging…
