Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipcolor
Best drugstore lipstick
Consumers love the huge range of colors (48 shades and counting) and wide availability of Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipcolor. An affordable price tag also helps. It has a creamy texture that feels good on the lips and the formula is highly pigmented so colors are crisp. Reviewers also love that the shades look the same on the lips as they do in the tube. Experts, however, point out that cream lipsticks like Maybelline Color Sensational must be reapplied often, and because they are so creamy, they can bleed into small wrinkles around the lips. By comparison, MAC Matte Lipstick tends to last a bit longer on the lips, but is double the price. Maybelline's downfall, say some, is that the lipstick starts to smell bad after a few months due to the castor oil-based formula.
