Maybelline “The Buffs” Color Sensational Lipsticks


I’d like to share with you three of the lipsticks I purchased from Maybelline’s “The Buffs” Lipstick Collection.  I was very excited when I learned of their release.  Like a lot of other beauty fanatics, I LOVE a nude lipstick.  What was great to see about this nude colour range, was that Maybelline had included a beautiful range of “nudes” for ALL skin tones!  They include 8 shades.

They were a big hit in the US, with shades selling out quickly.  I was able to cross the border and get mine on the US Side, before their release in Canada.  Since I have many nudes, I decided  that I’d go with #920 Nude Lust.  I ventured away from what would be a nude for my skin tone and decided to add some color, and picked up # 940 Touchable Taupe and #950 Untainted Spice.

They became available in Canada in mid January, and everyone kind of gave a sigh of relief, when they started showing up as part of the permanent collection.  They are very pigmented and apply nicely and I found them moisturizing.  They do have a bit of a smell, which I have learned is common for the Maybelline lipsticks.  They have a basic packaging, which personally I don’t care for…..I find it makes them look cheap.  What can I say, I prefer nice packaging!

Overall, I do recommend checking them out….I am sure that whatever your skin tone is, you will find  your perfect nude.

    I have nude lust as well (but I can find at it the moment, haha). But these others look nice too!

      Yes, it is one of my favorites. Can’t wait to see the Maybelline Dare to GO Nude collection!

    These colours are so pretty on you, but I can never get past the smell of the Maybelline lipsticks. Wish they’d reformulate.
