Maybelline’s Color Sensational lipstick in Flawless Fuchsia (855)

This was part of a collection that…well…let's be charitable. It didn't quite catch on the way Maybelline thought it would. All of the lipstick colors were pastels that looked like they were applied over a whitened base. They were near-matte finish, so they really exacerbated any wrinkles, and they looked…well…streaky. This color looked like it might be really really good on me. Sadly, instead, it was really really horrible.
