Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Coffee Craze 740 is part of the Stripped Nudes collection, known as The Buffs in the USA. This is a beige nude so it is more brown than pink which makes a refreshing change from all of the pink nude shades that are available. It has strong pigmentation and a satin finish. The shine is great for a gloss lover like me and as it is not a gloss, just a bit shiny, there is not the disadvantage of hair sticking to my lips.
The best thing about this lipstick is the staying power. It is very comfortable to wear as it is not drying and it lasts for ages. It lasts for many hours through several snacks before needing touching up. I have gone to touch up many times only to find that it is not necessary.
Another nice touch is that the scent reminds me of Play Doh. Happy memories!
I am really pleased I snapped this up. It is a pleasure to wear – I literally couldn’t ask for anything more from it!
See how nude this is on my Dark Blue Eyes and Ultra Nude Lips post.
