Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Brazen Berry is a great soft lipstick that goes on more like a gloss than a lipstick. While it looks very vibrant in the tube, it goes on as more of a pink than a bright purple. It is not highly pigmented either. In fact, to give it some extra oomph I topped it off with a Black Radiance gloss.
All and all I’d give this lipstick a 6 out of a 10. It’s pretty, but it’s isn’t anything special. In fact I know I have a few other lipsticks in a similar shade. Improve the color payoff and lasting power, and we’d have a hit.
