It's a lipstick kind of day, no? Granted, I can go for a new lipstick any day, but today in particular says lips. Maybelline has an interesting new lip offering in their Colour Jolt Intense Lip Paint. The liquid lip colour is a meld of lipstick and gloss to create a product that's pretty unique for drugstore beauty.

As mentioned, Colour Jolt Intense Lip Paint is like a lipstick / lip gloss hybrid. You get a liquid lipstick with a glossy shine. The product has a thick-ish texture, but it's easy wearing, non-sticky and quite comfortable- I'd go so far to say it's even lightly moisturizing.

The product comes housed in a small squeezy tube, with a slanted, doe foot type applicator. The applicator works well with the formula and easily maneuvers the shape of lips and applies product evenly. There is a watermelon scent (ugh, not a fan) but no taste and the scent does wear off pretty quickly. While I don't like the scent, it's not a deal breaker for me.

There are currently eight shades in the range (I sense that will change) with your standard fare- red, pinks, nudes, etc. I have tested three shades- Orange Outburst (red-tinged orange), Red-dy Or Not (cool red), and Berry Naughty (red-toned berry) and have found the formula to be consistent with them all.

Overall, I quite like these! They wear easily and last for a handful of hours (4-5) before fading away. I find the glossiness wears off first, leaving a more satin finish that holds pretty well. The shades I tried stained a bit, so these looked very decent as they faded- no weird patches.

I know what you may be thinking... Do they compare to the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks. Yes and no. I've only tried one shade from the too Faced line, and would say Colour Jolts have more gloss and a bit more slip. Both have a thicker formula, but similar feel on lips. While not dupes, Maybelline has made a pretty great product, but doesn't offer was wide a shade range. What do you think? Tried these or want to?
