We’re doing a back to back lip post, I know. I usually try not to do that for variety’s sake but I think these in color contrast are way different. These Lip Gradation Sticks by Maybelline (Lip Studio Color Blur in U.S.) are by far the easiest, most comfortable matte bright lipsticks I’ve ever put on from the department store, and they’re not patchy. I’m kind of late in discovering these, but that’s okay.
TOP DOWN: MAYBELLINE Lip Gradation in Mauve 1, Orange 1, and Fuschia 1, Php349.50 from local department stores.
They’re perhaps the next best thing to Colourpop Lippie Stix in form locally. I spotted them at Maybelline’s Brooklyn Brow event yesterday. Maybe the Maybelline team wondered why I was anything but focused on brows after I grabbed these testers from their table, haha. Read on to see why I was distracted.
