Maybelline Caribbean Coral Lustre Color Sensational High Shine Lipstick

Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lipstick in Caribbean Coral Lustre is one of the few LE shades from the Exotic Escape Collection. I wanted to scoop at least two more shades from the range (the sheer red and hot pink, both shimmer-free) but the totally underestimated the popularity of the collection so... This is all I ended up with (and I had to pay full price *the horror* ) .
Caribbean Coral Lustre (spelled differently from Coral Luster)  is a reddish orange coral in a true sorbet finish (that I have yet to seen from the brand because most sheer lipstick they have contain some shimmer/micro glitter) - sheer, juicy and moisturizing. It has the same citrus scent as the rest of Color Sensational High Shine lipsticks (you are getting the shimmer-free goodness in normal CS without the Playdoh-stink).
Caribbean Coral Lustre, Coral Crush, Essence Candy Bar, Liplicious Passion Fruit Guava. Even the Caribbean Coral Lustre which looks orange based, picks up some pink on my skin and ended up looking like a sheer, juicy version of Coral Crush. Admittedly, I prefer my coral to be bold and bright. At the same time, it's nice to know there is a more nose and lips friendly version of Coral Crush (it was a little drying and smells funny).
Maybelline Caribbean Coral Lustre Color Sensational High Shine Lipstick - The last time was alright (maybe around 2 hours before I needed to drink water?) . Overall: A great formula and color (albeit a little too similar to Coral Crush on me). I hope they bright the formula back when they revamped the Color Sensational High Shine range (they are on clearance in Walgreens, let's hope they are not sacking them).


  1. I hope they won't discontinue these lippies either. They have a lovely formula and that shade is so pretty!

  2. I have heard some really good reviews from Maybelline lippies. hope to check them out when I get back to the UK!
