Maybelline Color Sensational lipcolor Are You Ready review , swatch
Fact: Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick are my FAVOURITE budget lipsticks of all time – you can read my full review of the line in my original Color Sensational post. However in a nutshell, here’s what I love about them:
- The colour range is fantastic! There’s something to suit any skin-tone and style
- The packaging is surprisingly good for a budget brand, it’s attractive and functional
- They have great pigment and a nice ‘sheen’
- You can pick one up easily (Maybelline is sold in Priceline, Target, Pharmacies and some supermarkets) and they’re less than $20AUD – score!
Are You Ready? is easily one of the best budget red lipsticks going around, it’s a true red with no obvious red or orange undertones. The finish is lovely, it has a slight shine but I wouldn’t go as far as to call it glossy. Along with decent staying power, an easy application and pleasant scent this lipstick is perfect for those wanting to try out a bold red lip without splashing too much cash around (I managed to pick up Are You Ready in a buy one get one free deal, so it was even more of a bargain!)
On the lips there is nothing that would indicate this to be a ‘cheap’ lipstick, it looks just as good (if not better) than many of the other red shades that I own. I cannot recommend it enough…see for yourself just how gorgeous it is.

Maybelline is by far my favourite budget brand, it’s products are great quality for the price and they perform well across a variety of categories (I also love their Dream Liquid Mousse foundation and Line Stiletto liquid liner.) I plan to do further reviews of the Color Sensational line, perhaps I’ll do a series of the ‘Coloured Month’ style themed posts.
