Review | Maybelline The Buffs Lipsticks

Hey Beauties!

Realistically, I know that it’s Spring and I should be wearing bright pops of colour. I have plenty of pinks, peaches and berries that are perfect for Spring but for some reason I just can’t stop rocking a nude lip. It might be inspired by my favourite Youtubers Carli Bybel, Jaclyn Hill and Amanda Ensing who always look amazing with their stunning nude pouts.  

I have become a little bit addicted to collecting nude lipsticks in a variety of shades so I knew I needed to try out Maybelline’s The Buffs collection ($9.99). The Buffs collection is an addition to Maybelline’s Colour Sensational line, which is one of my absolute favourite lines from both the drugstore and high end. The Buffs is a line of 8 nudes that range from incredibly pale beiges to deep mauves and browns. There is a shade that is perfectly suited for every possible skin tone even for the fairest and the deepest of complexions. 

They come housed in gorgeous silver bullets with sheer nude cases that look so incredibly chic sitting on a vanity. Each lipstick has a great pointed tip that makes application a breeze, you can throw these in your purse and apply on the go or pair them with a lip liner for a super precise edge. 

The lipstick itself is pretty much perfect, they are super creamy with a slight slip that means they glide across the lips smoothly and sets to a satin finish. They have really great pigmentation that becomes opaque in two quick swipes. You can easily build up the colour or pat one layer into the lips for a more sheer look. They have a nicely hydrating formula that feels super comfortable and lasts about 3 – 4 hours, which is great for a more moisturizing lipstick. 

I have 3 of the 8 shades – Nude Lust (a true pinky beige), Blushing Beige (a peachy beige) and Truffle Tease (a peachy caramel with warm undertones). All three of them are super wearable shades for my skin tone and Truffle Tease is the perfect darker nude that is so popular right now. If you have a darker complexion than me, there are 5 more shades to play with and I have no doubt that you will find the perfect shade for you!

There is something so stunning and timeless about a good nude lip and Maybelline has a collection that has an option for everyone! I highly recommend the Buffs collection and you can get them online or in your local drugstore.

    I have one of these and I love it! I picked it up by chance about a year ago when I was looking for a nude lip and it's absolutely fantastic, the best nude I own!The Makeup Directory

    I've seen this collection featured in magazines recently. I find it so hard to find a nude lip! I only have one, from the Too Faced Melted Kisses. Otherwise nude lips just scare me! I should look at this collection, I like the idea of a larger shade range.

    Blushing Beige looks so nice! It's so hard to find a nude to suit me, I recently got Fresh Sugar Lip treatment in Nude so we'll see how that goes.. Macarons and Mischief

    Wow, those really are gorgeous nude shades. Is it weird that I would actually want to wear them as eyeshadow…?
