Maybelline’s Color Sensational Lipstick in Blissful Berry (410)

This almost looks like a very pigmented lip balm instead of a lipstick. This was a more recent purchase, so maybe the formula had changed from the bulk of the Colorsensational lipsticks that I bought between 2011-2017. I did want a darker shade, but this works for me for daily wear when I want that “darker balm” shade but that’s as much color as I want on my lips.
