Color My Lips: Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lip Color in SUMMER SUNSET

Hi everyone!

I'm back with a new Color My Lips tutorial. This time, I featured the Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Exteme Lip Color in Summer Sunset (whew!). It's a very beautiful and pigmented red lipstick which, by the way, is one of my favorite lipsticks ever. In this post, you'll not just see the look I created using the said lipstick but I will also do a review about it.

I got this months ago and I can say that it's actually love at first try! The color is just amazingly pigmented. It's very rich and moisturizing on the lips. One thing though that I hate about this lipstick is its scent. I got this for only PhP 210.00 because Maybelline was on sale the day I bought this. The original price is PhP 299.00.

PRODUCT NAME:  Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lip Color in Summer Sunset
PRICE:  PhP 299.00
SPOTTED:  SM North Edsa, Watsons

I'm in love with this not just because of its color and not just because it's from Maybelline. I love RED color, that's a fact but that doesn't mean I would collect any red lipsticks out there without knowing if they are actually worth my hard-earned money. I'm in love with this lipstick because of the richness of its color and its staying power. Let me show you 3 different photos taken from two different events that will prove the power of the color's longevity.

This is the first photo. This was taken last December. I was on my way to a makeup gig that time. This photo was taken 2 hours after the application. The color was still very pigmented and no trace of bleeding.

Not yet convinced?

Take a look at the second photo. The event was my aunt's 60th birthday party and they wanted a 50's theme so my cousins and I decided to sport red lips and vintage hairstyles. Anyway, this photo was taken before the party started at around 6 in the evening.

This is the third photo. This was taken before the party ended at around 11 in the evening. Amazing huh? I apologize for the bad quality of the photo pala. :)

I did not even re-apply my lipstick during the party because we were so busy taking care of the event since we're a part of the organizing committee because the occasion was actually a surprise party for my aunt so we needed to help out our cousins, her children, with the party preps and managing the whole event.

My experience with Summer Sunset during my aunt's party made me love it more. I'd always reach for it whenever I want to wear red lips. I have also used this in two of my video tutorials.

The first one is my Holiday Makeup Look Part III, Classic Red Lips and Sultry Eyes. 

You can watch the video here:

The second tutorial is my latest one. It's my second video for my one of my segments in my YT channel which is the Color My Lips. I paired the look with a simple gold eye makeup.
