Today was just one of those Monday’s where I felt like I was completely exhausted from the really busy weekend. I woke up and looked in the mirror, saw my tired-looking eyes and sallow skin and thought to myself, “How can I perk my face up today?” Fake it until you make it, right? This Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick in Ravishing Pink seemed to do the trick for me. It’s a really beautiful pastel pink shade that looks glossy on your lips, so the light seems to just be drawn to your face. It perked up my lips, brought a little sparkle back to my eyes, and made me look more awake.

Ravishing Pink is part of Maybelline’s “Sweet Summertime” Collection which is limited edition for the month of May 2013 only. I’m a huge fan of their Color Whisper Lipsticks because they’re the perfect grab-and-go lip color. They’re perfect for daytime because they have a sheerness to them and look glossy on your lips. Ravishing Pink itself is a gorgeous pale pink shade that ends up looking shimmery and shiny on your lips. It’s essentially the perfect “nude-pink” lip color for anyone of any skin tone because of the neutral tones in it.
What I love about the Color Whisper’s is that they can be applied sheer or built up to be more opaque. There is a sheerness to them when you first apply them, and you can easily build the color up to be noticeable in just a few swipes. I like the shiny, glossy effect they give off. It keeps the look youthful, modern, and fresh. They also feel really moisturizing on your lips, like a lip balm, when you apply them.
This color is stunning. It’s not overly milky, chalky, or too light. It also doesn’t lean too cool or too warm toned. It’s a universally flattering pale pink shade that really livens up the face.
You can see above that the lip color just helps bring a dewy, youthful look to my face, and a little shimmering white eyeshadow in the corner of my eyes never hurts either. Overall, this is a really pretty limited edition Maybelline Color Whisper, and definitely a flattering shade for everyone and anyone.
Maybelline Color Whisper in “Ravishing Pink” is part of Maybelline’s limited edition “Sweet Summertime” Collection for May 2013 only.
