One of my first lipsticks was from Maybelline – Jewel Berry. I bought it over and over because I used to be really boring that way. Maybelline and I have moved on since, but I’ve always held a soft spot for their lippies because they are inexpensive little treats that are really nice. This is especially so when I have a soft spot for sheer moisturizing lipsticks in the Japanese style and the Maybelline Watershine range delivers on all counts on this one sans hefty price tag.
I’ve tried quite a few from the Maybelline Watershine range (3D Collagen, Watershine) which I like for the sheer subtle colour and shine. Not everyone’s cuppa that’s for sure.
In keeping with the 2011 trend for sheer shiny lipstick (seriously, is there a memo somewhere that brands consult?) Maybelline has Watershine Pure Diamonds. The colour featured here is #304 which looks pretty in the tube but is in fact, a very very light shiny pink. So light, the swatches barely show up, and so light I was sure I’d look like the walking dead. So it took quite a bit of thinking to get this colour to work 😉
