Hi lovebugs! Tonight I have something a little different from my norm. Something I absolutely love and can't wait to bring more of to my blog: beauty posts! Woohoo! So let's hop right into this, shall we?

Maybelline boasts that their Color Whispers are "pure color pigments suspended in a weightless gel. No heavy waxes or oils. Soft, sexy gel-color." As a huge Maybelline fan, I was pretty excited to hear they were coming out with their own version of a "lip butter". Unfortunately, I've never tried Revlon's Colorburst Lip Butters nor L'Oreal's Colour Riche Lip Balms so I really can't compare. With 20 shades from nude to deep plum and everything in between, there's something for everyone.

Straight off the bat, I love the packaging. Super trendy and eye-catching. Only drawback is, the packaging is tinted so you can't really tell what the true color is unless you open it or search for it online.

Go Nude is a super sheer peachy nude.

Application was very slick, smooth and moisturizing but settled into the lines of my lips and is very sheer.

Pin Up Peach is a peachy blush-y pink with subtle gold shimmer.

Much MUCH better! No issues here! Pin Up Peach is super moisturizing and smooth to put on. The color is not super sheer like Go Nude but rather gives a peachy pink tint to whatever your natural lip color is. I really love this color with my skin tone but I feel like it may look different according to your own natural lip color.

Berry Ready is a fun fuschia berry.

Squee! My ultimate favorite of the bunch! Super opaque and just absolutely yummy! Super smooth and slick to put on. This left a nice stain on my lips once is faded. This is a bit darker in person.

Petal Rebel is a bright soft pink (does that make sense?).

Total different color than what I thought it'd be! Again, super moisturizing and slick. I love the glossy look it has. This was light, but unlike Go Nude, was surprisingly not sheer. On me, this almost gave off that whole light pink Mod look. A little shocked but I loved it!

Overall: I'm pretty happy I bought these but now I want to try the lip butters from other companies for comparison. I noticed the lighter shades are more sheer (but somewhat build-able) than the darker ones. I noticed that like most lipsticks, they faded pretty quickly although Berry Ready did give me a nice little stain once it wore off. All four of these did not disappoint in the moisture and slickness departments. I'll definitely be purchasing more! 

Where to buy: Walmart, Target, local drugstores, etc. Price: $5.99 - $9.99
