The Maybelline Color Sensatinal lipstick in My Mahogany is my absolute favorite lipstick - the one that I reach for the most - and seeing that I was using so much of it, I decided to get a little brave and pick up some more shades from this range.  The first shade I tried out was Summer Sunset.

Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in Summer Sunset is a reddish-pink shade with a hint of brown thrown in somewhere :P  There is very fine shimmer in the lipstick that doesn't show up on the lips or on swatches.  I do feel that this lipstick has a cooler tone to it, though, because of the silver shimmer.

On swatches, Summer Sunset looks like a warm pink with coral tones to it, but on my lips it's more reddish.  The silvery shimmer is just not visible, but it does give the lipstick a cool-bluish tone, imo.  Creamy and quite opaque (I applied it with a lip brush, hence the sheerer application), I find the formulation of this lipstick quite nice, especially for the drugstore price!  It lasts about 2-3 hours on me but not through a meal, and it doesn't dry out my lips either.  While I have no complaints about anything else, the shade itself I don't really like.  If you are lighter (and/or cooler toned) than I am, do give this a try - would be a nice, brightening color and a comfy alternative to a proper red lipstick.

  1. The lipstick looks really pretty on your lips.. complementing your look very well..looks reddish by itself though..but just 2-3 hrs staying power is too low dont you think?

    1. Actually, I don't have an issue with it..I prefer creamier, nondrying lipsticks and those don't usually last very long..guess it's a compromise of sorts but am okay with it :D

  2. I love this color and looks good on you :) but y don't you like it?

    My Mahogany doesn't show up on my lips so I feel this will look terrible on me. Y can't i wear such great colors :(

    Our skin tone might be different (I am not sure) but gradually (after several trials) I got this feeling that something that doesn't suit you won't suit me too !! And now I feel like trying My Mahogany once more in the stores :D

    1. I don't like this sort of color at all..I keep thinking of paaan eating whenever I see such colors :| :| It looks okay on my skin color..and it has that sheen kinds na because of the silver shimmer, I don't like that either...

      My Mahogany can make my face look washed out if I am a bit tanned, but I sort of like it with darker eye makeup..
