Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick: A Bit of Berry

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in A Bit of Berry:  A creamy, pink lipstick with a hint of berry to it, this lipstick is the typical Maybelline Color Sensational.  The pigmentation is opaque with a single swipe, yet the texture is light and creamy.  While not really hydrating, the Color Sensational lipsticks are some of the most lip-friendly ones I have, and A Bit of Berry is no exception.  It also has the caramel toffee sort of smell to it, that I personally don't mind much, and I don't really notice it much once I am done applying the lipstick.  While the lipstick looks like a brownish plum in the tube, on my lips it looks more like a brighter mauve-pink (something it shares with MAC Captive!).  With a brighter shade like this, I prefer playing it safe and going with neutral eyes and a clean face - a barely there pink blush to avoid looking too washed out.  Scroll on for photos and swatches:

This is one lipstick where my my swatches are quite unreliable.  I doubt if it is going look this pink on anyone, so in case you LOVE such bright shades and run out and get this because of my post - I am putting out a disclaimer - swatch before you buy!  :P :P :D   That said, I am guessing this shade would turn out a brighter pinkish-berry (rather than a darker plum) on just about everyone.  I bought it without swatching, and I am still getting used to wearing this in "real life."  If you love brighter lipsticks and/or can carry off a brighter lip color, do give this affordable lipstick a try - it could be your alternative to the classic red lip.
