All of the entries for the year 2020 were completed before March 2020. Most items were bought in, or before, 2019. And so, despite the pandemic where buying makeup is definitely a lower priority, I'm still publishing these posts.
Maybelline’s Color Sensational Lipstick in Plum Paradise (425)

This doesn’t have as much color payoff as I wish that it did. If it were fully opaque I think it would be a fast favorite of mine - I like the color, and wouldn’t mind if it were a little more saturated. This isn’t quite as bad as the Covergirl lipsticks that himt at total opacity but won’t build worth a damn
