The bonus item that I got from the September BDJ Box is this Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in the shade 135 Make Me Pink. It was included in the box as compensation for bumping me to September (instead of getting the August box which I had originally subscribed to). I was excited to see this as I really loved my first ColorSensational lippie (in Peachy Scene, from the May BDJ Box).
It comes in the same dark red cover and silver bullet, with the shade name and number at the bottom. I am still a big fan of this packaging, even if the red cover is just sturdy plastic.
Here is the swatch on my arm, one layer on the left and two on the right. As you can see, it’s a little buildable, but not much.
Unfortunately it looks a little weird on my lips. As this is a lighter pink and leans on the neon side, it pops out in a bad way on my darker lips.
The formula is still good though, and it doesn’t dry out my lips. This would cost the same as the Peachy Scene one, at Php399, and can be bought in major supermarkets and drugstores.
Pros: great packaging; availability; affordable
Cons: color doesn’t suit me
