Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Fuchsia Fever - Review, Photos, Swatches

Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in Fuchsia Fever is seriously one of my favorite drugstore lipsticks. It's a bright pink with slight cool undertones to it, making it a perfect Barbie pink shade.
It's color payoff is awesome. Very opaque, creamy, and moisturizes your lips
It has a decent hours of wear to it, and leaves a cute pink stain on your lips when it feathers off.
Its part of the permanent range but its one of those shades they usually run out of because its quite popular.
It has a certain taste to it, but nothing overwhelming.

PROS: awesome color, creamy, won't dry out your lips, opaque, affordable, locally available
CONS: subtle taste to it but I personally don't mind it all. May need a lip primer to help in the hours of wear


 I will definitely repurchase!

  4. Hi... :) how would u compare this to MAC's CYY? Hope you can help me as I am so confused whichnone to buy because as you know, there really is a huge price diff. :D

    How abouy you compare the ff:
    Maybelline fuchsia fever
    Nars schiap
    Mac camdy yumyum
    Mac pink fusion
    Mac pink.pigeon?

    1. OMG I totally forgot about this as a dupe for CYY! I would say they're pretty close, though CYY is a tough brighter. The only major difference would be the finish. CYY is matte while Fuchsia Fever is creamy. They're both pretty opaque also.

      Personally, I'd still prefer CYY because of the finish. I prefer bright shades in matte finish since they last a lot longer. I also think it looks more..classy? And I also prefer MAC's subtle Vanilla scenttaste. :)

      Anyway, I've already included a new swatch comparison. :)
      Sorry, I don't have Pink Fusion. Or did you mean Fusion Pink (more like Full Fuchsia, a little far from CYY)?

      Thanks, Shin!

  5. Hi I purchases Maybelline Fuchsia fever today and now I'm planning to purchase as well NYX in shocking pink and Barry M in shocking pink as well,are they almost the same? Or it's not necessary to hoad since they are almost the same?

    and I'm following you now, I hope you could follow back thanks pretty xx


    1. Barry M's Shocking Pink is the matte version of Fuchsia Fever, so if you'd like to try the same shade in a different finish, I'd suggest you get the Barry M.

      NYX Shocking Pink on the other hand is little more purple than Fuchsia Fever and Barry M's Shocking Pink. Personally, I prefer the Barry M one over the NYX one. It's all up to you though. :)
      Let me know which one you'll get! :)
