I happened to walk down the cosmetic aisle of Kroger’s Grocery store and saw my sorority sister Melody. She told me about a new line of Maybelline lipsticks that were dupes for MAC lipsticks. She was looking to find dupes for Embrace Me and Candy Yum Yum. I was a bit hesitant because I’ve never tried Maybeline’s lip products. When it comes to drugstore lippies, I’m a huge fan of Revlon. I decided to go look anyway. While looking at the pinks, I happened to pickup a pretty purple called Brazen Berry.
It was love at first sight. Now mind you, I had no intentions of buying any lipsticks. I was only supposed to be “looking”. Needless to say I went home with Brazen Berry. Here’s my review below.
I’m in love with this lipstick. It feels really, really good on my lips.
It’s not quite as hydrating as my beloved Revlon Lip Butters, but it feels creamier than MAC Cremesheen lipsticks. The staying power is really good. I put on Brazen Berry early this morning at around 7:30 and it lasted well after lunch. I still had some color left on my lips, it just wasn’t as vibrant. That’s a shocker! I was pleasantly surprised at the great quality and value (less than $6). I’d definitely recommend these and I’ll be purchasing more colors.
