Maybelline Color Sentational Popsticks

I was in Boots the other day and was drawn to the packaging of this Maybelline lipstick. The packaging alone had me sold! I picked it up not knowing much about it but also because Maybelline is currently on 3 for 2 in Boots. 

I was originally a little shocked at the actual colour of the lipstick compared to the tube. They have some other shades available but this one swatched the nicest and appeared to be the most pigmented. 

 It is slightly deceiving to call this a lipstick because it is really just a glorified tinted lip balm. Having said that I love it! It has a delicious cherry scent and is moisturizing but doesn't last very long. As you can see in the picture the pigmentation is very slight. I have found you have to be careful applying it without a mirror as it goes outside your lip line but that may just be me! I much prefer lip balms in a tube rather than a pot as I feel they are more hygienic and easier to apply as you don't have to deal with sticky fingers. I do enjoy this lipstick but don't think I would purchase any more as the price is steep for what it is and I feel you could get a cheaper product to do the same job.
