Beauty ¦ Maybelline colour sensational shine glosses

I'm not usually a lip gloss person, the only lip glosses I don't hate are the Clarins instant light natural lip perfectors. However I'd read some good things about the Maybelline Colour sensational glosses so I decided to bite the bullet and give them a go. Now don't get me wrong I don't like them as much as the Clarins ones however I was pretty impressed.
They are a little bit sticky but no way near the levels that some drugstore glosses can be. The pigment of them is really lovely and they both add a wash of glossy colour. Glorious grapefruit is my favourite of the two shades, it's a peachy pink shade which looks lovely to add a slight bit of colour to bare lips or over a nude lipstick to make it a little more pink. Electric orange is a very bright true orange shade which looks amazing with a fairly minimal makeup as a little pop of colour. This one would be brilliant if you want to try an orange shade without going full on bright orange.

Neither of the shades have any shimmer in which is something I am really glad about as I find a lot of glosses can be far too glittery for my liking. The formula is lovely and creamy and they feel really hydrating and smooth on the lips. I find they wear for around 3 hours however electric orange leaves behind a light orangey tint on the lips. The glosses have a slight citrusy scent which I personally really like but if you aren't a big fan of scents in your lip products these probably aren't for you.
Overall I'd recommend these if you don't have the budget for the Clarins lip perfector however if you do I would definitely suggest those.
