Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in "Electric Orange" & "Ruby Star": Review & Swatches

Disclaimer: Products featured were provided for review.
Hi everyone, today I have the swatches and reviews of two lovely lipsticks from Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipcolor line. "Electric Orange" is from the Vivids collection and "Ruby Star" is from their original line. To read more and see some lip swatches, click......

A simple summery and bright orange lipstick, "Electric Orange" has great pigmentation and a nice application. I wish I had gotten this color when I was in my "orange lipstick" phase, I would have really rocked it then! Nowadays I am a little hesitant about wearing a color like this, especially during winter times. But formula-wise, this is a great lipstick! Perhaps I'll give this a go when the summer months arrive.

Appropriately named, "Ruby Star" is a beautiful and pigmented wine colored lipstick embedded with micro-flecks of gold glitters. The application is very smooth despite the gold flecks and I think this is a great red for the holidays, with a vampy twist.
Overall, I really enjoyed both of these lipsticks. They were all nicely moisturizing and richly pigmented. The only minor downside I have with these (as I mentioned in my previous Sensational Lipstick review), is that they have that old-school lipstick smell which I personally don't like. It's not a deal breaker but it's worth mentioning for those that prefer their lipsticks to be scent-free.

So what do you think? Which do you prefer? The bright "Electric Orange" or the festive "Ruby Star?
Let me know in the comments below, have a good day!
