Be still my beating heart. That is what I thought when I first set eyes on Maybelline’s new Color Whispers.* These lipsticks have just arrived in Canada…and in this lipstick junkie’s hands. Can I hear a woot, woot?!
The lipsticks seem to be the talk of the beauty community. They are Maybelline’s answer to the lip balm/gloss/lipstick hybrids that are cropping up everywhere, from Revlon Lip Butters to Rouge Coco Shines. I am a big, big fan of these hybrid lipsticks so these are right up my alley. I could collect them all…and I think I’m well on my way.
According to Maybelline, these are: ‘pure color pigments suspended in a weightless gel. No heavy waxes or oils. Soft, sexy gel-color.’
Sounds divine, yes? Since I just received these over the weekend, I don’t have a verdict just yet. For now, here are a few photos and swatches.
I love the cute little container that came as part of the press kit. I might just keep them in there permanently. It keeps everything so organized!
Once you lift the covers of the tubes, you see the beautiful colours. Sigh.

And, below are the swatches. There are a few that are calling out my name. Can you guess which ones?
The Maybelline Color Whispers are gorgeous. I can’t wait to try them on my lips!
Have you tried them yet?
