My Favorite Nudes - Maybelline ColorSensational Lipgloss in Iced Chocolate (swatch)

I am a red lippie girl through and through.  But there are times where I get a hankering for a luscious nude lip. I would not call myself a connoisseur of nude lip products, but I am particular enough that I will hunt and hunt for the perfect color and texture.  Maybelline's ColorSensational lipgloss in Iced Chocolate is one I could not live without!

Iced Chocolate is one of 12 glosses from the permanent range of colorsensational glosses.  You get .17floz of product in the tube.  These retail for around $7.50 USD, but have luck finding them on sale plenty of times, and Maybelline is good about doing coupons for lip products often.

This gloss has what I like to call a "cushion" effect.  Sits very nicely on the lips...the formula, although it covers completely, is not thick.  It really does a fantastic job of coating the lips and making them feel soft and saturated.  Iced Chocolate does have silver micro sparkles but they are not in your face, they add more to the look of shine than glitter.  I find this gloss moisturizing enough to be able to go about 3 hours before I need to reapply but your mileage may vary there.

I do not have the world's most pigmented lips.  They are somewhere between pigmented and washed out :(
Even with this, what I love about Iced Chocolate is that it gives the perfect amount of creamy nude with a slight hint of healthy pink!  In the picture above it comes off pinkier than it really is.  I can imagine that on someone with more pigmented lips, this would actually take on a more rosey tone.

What more could you ask for in a drugstore gloss...

awesome price point
healthy nude look ( a my lips but better if you will)
amazing texture and formula

Thanks for stopping by!
