If there's one colour of lipstick I don't have in my collection it's purple. I'm not afraid of bold, bright colours on my lips, but purple is something I've never tried out. Finally, when I saw a buy one, get one half price offer on Maybelline products, I thought I'd pick something up. I still didn't have the courage to go for a completely bold, purple lip, so I chose a more subtle, purple/pink shade called 'Plum Passion' by Maybelline Color Sensational.

Up until recently, I really didn't own many products by Maybelline. When I've been walking around Boots, I've always found myself drawn to other brands and their products. A few weeks ago I had a proper look through due to the offer they had on and found so many things I wanted to pick up. One of the things I picked up was the Maybelline Color Sensational in 365 'Plum Passion'. Plum Passion is a gorgeous pink/purple colour. It's bold and bright and it has the perfect amount of purple for someone like me whose trying out that colour. I absolutely adore the shade. It's a really wearable colour for day and for night. 

This lipstick for me is in between matte and shiny, therefore it's not too drying on the lips. Although I am normally a fan of matte lipsticks, this is a nice in between and is slightly moisturizing. The formula is beautiful and glides onto the lips with ease. It's quite long lasting as I'd say it lasts for around 4 hours without needing to top it up, 

Overall, I'm glad I finally decided to try some more Maybelline products and I have began to experiment with a purple lip! 

Have you tried any Maybelline lip products before?
