Maybelline Fall 2013 Limited Edition Color Sensational Lip Gloss

Hi everyone!!!
Happy Tuesday! I had an amazing weekend getting to hang out with Kristin Gehm in Chicago! It's kind of the halfway point between where we live, and we just had a blast (there will be a video coming). But she gave me some gifts-- including these incredible lip glosses that she's been raving about! They're limited edition for fall from the Maybelline Color Sensational line (the same line that makes Almond Crush- which I love!) I was never able to find these new shades, so being the makeup-loving friend she is, Kristin tracked them down for me up in Wisconsin! Thank you!!! ♥
The deeper shade is #305 Raspberry Ablaze, and the pink-ish color is #310 Berry Brilliance. 
These are creamy, shiny colors with no shimmer. They don't feel sticky on the lips, yet I think the staying power is pretty impressive. I've been wearing Raspberry Ablaze today and have gotten groceries and eaten lunch... while there's not a lot of shine, there's still plenty of color hanging around on my lips, and it hasn't gotten sloppy running outside my lip line. I also like that I can get full color with a minimal amount of product- without having to build it up with tons of extra gloss. Goopy lips are not fun!
Here I'm wearing Raspberry Ablaze- while the color seems to have a lot of purple tone to it in the tube, it seems like more of a classic berry shade on the lips. Absolutely love it!  
And here's Berry Brilliance. As you can see, the two shades aren't incredibly different, but Berry Brilliance is a bit brighter and more pink (and I actually feel like I see more of a difference between the two in person). 

I just wanted to get this post out in case you find any of these glosses hanging around in special Maybelline displays in your local drugstores! If you end up missing out on these limited edition glosses, definitely check out the regular Color Sensational line. I have a few of the lighter shades- Almond Crush (sheer champagne), Luminous Latte (honey/nude), and Glisten Up Pink (light pink shimmer), and I really enjoy them! Are there any other limited edition collections you've been trying to hunt down?

Daily Nuggets...
  • It's a rainy, dreary day here!
  • I like the sound of the dishwasher running.
  • More editing to do now- trying to get ahead for the days I'll be gone later this week.
  • If you might be interested in winning an amazing new holiday palette- keep an eye on my Beauty Broadcast channel tomorrow... just sayin'!
  • I went the new Ulta in my area today! OMG. I thought it was opening this weekend, but turns out their "soft opening" is this week! It's amazing and it seems so big! I'm going to have to control myself...

  1. Ahhh I have that Rasberry Ablaze...and I love it so much! Was thinking about buying the new Maybelline lip product, I think they're like liquid lipsticks I forgot what they're called exactly but ended up buying the lipgloss instead.

  2. Randomness: On the white noise app I recently got there's a dish washer option.

  3. My target had all their color sensational lipglosses on clearance for $2.78 the other day. It was their normal display and all colors so I'm not sure what the deal is...I definitely stocked up though! :)

    1. I noticed the same thing at our Target stores here in Maryland. (In fact, I was visiting the blog tonight specifically to make *sure* this was the same lipgloss Emily has been raving about) I had assumed that the entire line was either being reformulated, repackaged, or discontinued. =( I got the Almond Crush color while I knew I still could.. Hopefully the line sticks around though, it would be a shame to lose it!!

  4. I very nearly bought one of these limited edition glosses at Walmart a few weeks ago...but none of them were sealed! Yech. It was super disappointing! I haven't been able to find them anywhere else, either. Oh well - haha, I probably don't need any more lip gloss, anyway! ;)

  8. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the Smashbox Rose Gold kit. I have been eying it for a while and so far resisting temptation.

  9. I thought you should know (to possibly make a blog announcement or something) that the entire line of these lip glosses, the colored maybelline macaras, the jewel of an eye palette by sonia kashuk (and some other duos of hers), some SK lip liners, ...and I think a brush set as well. ALL 50% off!!!

  11. Both colours are stunning on you. Only recently came across your videos and blog but you inspired me to get back into a make up routine - especially now in the cooler season. Love your style as I feel that even as a 40++ I can still pull it off.

  16. My FAVORITE beauty finds are LE drugstore makeup items. I recently got the WNW LE trios, Maybelline LE quads, and ELF villains palettes. I really love the LE Maybelline lipstick in Violet Intrigue (think Up the Amp, CG Divine). Completely gorgeous shade. Check out my latest HUGE haul (cheap: Forever 21, Target, etc) on my blog. xoxo!
