Hello! I feel like I haven’t written in so long! I have been really busy at work, and sometimes I just don’t want to be on a computer anymore, since I spend the majority of my work day at the computer, unless I’m out photographing something. I LOVE my job though, so that’s not really a complaint. More like an observation that my eyes need a break sometimes. 🙂 Anyway, I currently can’t sleep, so I thought why not just get out of bed and blog?
SO- Maybelline Touch of Spice matte lipstick is totally that Marsala shade, as I’m sure you have heard by now, and since there was ONE left on the display at Meijer, I decided to pick it up!
Maybelline has really improved their lipstick formula in recent years. I used to hate Maybelline lipsticks! The matte ones are nice and “thin”, and not drying. That said, they are still pigmented.
Touch of Spice is a beautiful color. It applies evenly and doesn’t drag on the lips. You also don’t need to keep passing over it to build up color, which is always nice! It isn’t streaky and it doesn’t accentuate dryness (lucky for me).
Although it is matte, it does have a touch of shine. I paid less than $5 for mine- it was on sale for $4.79, so it is more affordable than the actual Marsala lipstick that Sephora sells ($18, and currently sold out).
Overall, definitely a great addition to my lippie stash, and an affordable way to quench my crazy all-the-Marsala desire!
