Maybelline’s Color Sensational lipstick in Lilac Flush (725)

Almost a pastel lip color…admittedly, not what I was hoping for. Something a little deeper would have looked better on me. This was part of the limited-edition Rebel Bloom collection, and I’ll try just about any mid-shade-range purple lipstick. This one is a little too light/pastel-ish for my preferences, and the coverage is a little uneven. I had to go over my lips several times to get it to even out, and that had the unfortunate effect of making the lipstick bunch up a bit.
