Rose of Attraction - Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick

More draft folder clear up - Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick in Rose of Attration was a clearance bin find from Rite Aid. The range has since (actually I have seen the clearance going since last summer) be continued and Maybelline no longer has a sheer lipstick range.
Rose of Attraction is a little deceiving (especially looking at the lid, which made me assume that it's a deeper rose): The lighter than medium bright pink (I think it leans a little more yellow than it leans blue)is rather sheer, glossy and slippery and there is a load of silver shimmer than isn't too obnoxious.

I have tried only a handful of Color Whisper Lipsticks and so far, they are either thin, shimmery/slippery or in a better slightly-thicker jelly finish. I prefer the latter but Rose Attraction belongs to the former. I am OK with the shade but I have way too many lipsticks so I don't find myself reaching for it.

  1. Love the roses! I wish there were more rose bushes in Manhattan. When I lived in Seoul, there are red roses everywhere in May and June. I miss that!
    I never tried this range but the packaging reminds me of the L'Oreal Balm Pop (I ranted that the color I picked up is too pigmented to pass as a balm). I don't like it when the formula is inconsistent within the same range. I understand it has a lot to do with the kind of pigment used, but certain consistency is expected.

    Have a great weekend! :)

    1. Happy weekend to you as well, I love the whole seasonal flower things in new jersey(of course I will always miss the cherry blossom)as well...makes a perfect backdrop instead of the usual green in texas. I just hope it will stop being so hot.
