Maybelline // ColorSensational Popsticks in Pink Sugar

Maybelline Color Sensational Popsticks have been out for quite awhile now and have got to be the most pointless item I have ever purchased. I picked this up when I needed a little pick me up, my Boots had just got them in. Maybelline Color Sensational Popsticks retail at £7.19.
As soon as I opened Pink Sugar it went in the basket, perfect dupe for the Topshop one I missed out on. The other shades in this range looked disgusting, they were so dark and reminded me of the Push Pop lollipops as a child. Not something I'd want on my lips. They smell delicious though, very fruity!
Popsticks won't give you any colour, certainly not Pink Sugar, but I expected a bit more from them. The glitter doesn't show up on the lips, hence no lip swatches, nobody wants to see naked, boring lips. Pop Sticks are just a pretty, over priced lip balm, that isn't even that great at moisturising. You have to keep frequently reappling and defintely don't go by the swatches on Boots online, nothing like the product. 
With Flash.
Would I purchase again? No, I got sucked in by the glitter and hoped it would be like the Topshop version, where the glitter does show. An over priced, dressed up lip balm, I'd rather of had Baby Lips released in the UK.

    1. I suppose you can't expect much from a clear lippy though :) But if it's glitter I want glitter and moisturising!

    1. Completely pointless product, I don't know what the other shades are like, but they looked pretty rank in the bullet.

    1. We really should, they do a mango flavour don't they? I'm mad for mango, peach and coconut. Don't forget the bouncy blushes and mega plush mascara too :(

  8. Nice to read a good honest review, I like to know when things are crap just as much as when they are good! Saves me wasting my pennies :)

  10. I'm just like you and always get sucked in by pretty things! It looks lovely, but can see how this would be too sheer xxx
