Review: Maybelline Loaded Bolds by Color Sensational

26 April 2017

Are you ready for the MOST LOADED and BOLDEST lipstick collection to come from a drugstore brand yet? I SURE AM! Ohmygolly goodness, color me excited because I will be sharing swatches of the new Maybelline Loaded Bolds in this post!


I've never been one to shy away from bold lip colors, but I never thought I'd see the day I'd try on unconventional lipsticks. Well, spoiler alert! I TRIED BLACK LIPSTICK ON AND I LIKED IT. ♥

Maybelline recognizes that it takes guts to flaunt some of the boldest beauty looks that come out of the runway but with the launch of their latest lipstick collection, I'm positive every girl will surely go for the boldest shade. Think black and blue, the Loaded Bolds by Color Sensational truly boasts bold and edgy shades that we only see in the catwalk. Read more to see my swatches and quick thoughts on each of the 12(!!!) shades that will be released in our shores!

Audacious Blue
Audacious Blue is an electrifying blue that can never look boring even if it tried! I can't wait for the day we can wear colors like this on a regular basis because can imagine myself pairing it with a denim on denim outfit. HAH.

Berry Bossy
Berry Bossy is a beautiful berry red that's flattering for all skin tones. This is one of my favorite shades in this collection. I find myself reaching out for it when I want to look effortlessly pretty.

Chocoholic
Chocoholic is the Loaded Bolds' answer to the '90s throwback that's still the rage these days. It's a gorgeous brown that aims to get noticed.

Dynamite Red
Dynamite Red is a fiery red. It's not really my favorite red in this collection but it reminded me of Taylor Swift for some reason.

Fearless Purple
Fearless Purple is another favorite. It's a nice alternative to my Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Vibrant Violet that melted.

Fierce Fuchsia
Fierce Fuchsia actually looks fiercer and brighter in person. It's a loud and proud pink and every girl should have it in her lipstick stash.

Midnight Date
Midnight Date is a nice vampy and sophisticated red. I've been using it on my meetings for the last two days.

Pitch Black
Pitch Black is a great black lipstick that applies well and doesn't look streaky. I LOVE IT SO MUCH AND I'M TYPING IN ALL CAPS TO DRIVE MY POINT ACROSS MORE CLEARLY. I'm planning to wear it out more often.

Raspberry Rendezvous
Raspberry Rendezvous is a fabulous berry pink that's more wearable than Fierce Fuchsia if you don't like neon pinks that much.

Smoking Red
Smoking Red is my favorite red in this collection. Red lipsticks instantly make me feel sexy but this red just makes me feel more alluring. I love love love this red.

Sunny Coral
Sunny Coral is a red orange that's perfect for summer. I think it'll be my shade for this coming extra-long weekend.

Wickedly White
Oh Wickedly White, I tried so hard to love you but I can't get over how difficult it was to make sure the color applies evenly. A lip liner would've helped but I didn't have one during my swatch party. Either way, this would be a great base lipstick for those who have pigmented lips. I also like that we can turn to Maybelline for options when we need lipsticks that are out of our ordinary pinks, reds, and nudes.

Indeed, these are Maybelline's most pigmented mattes to date. I couldn't believe how intense the color payoff I got was with just a single swipe! As with all other Maybelline lipsticks released recently, I'm a fan of its creamy texture and high pigmentation that don't leave my lips feeling parched! Staying power is greater than average, too!

I wish I could've attended the launch event that happened a day before my birthday, but I was too busy tying loose ends in the office before I left for my two week-vacation. The launch showcased a fashion show with special guests Maureen Wroblewitz and Jennica Sanchez from Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5. where both contenders also shared their experience being in the top model reality show with the audience. Looking forward to attending the next event with my fellow Maybelline Squad members!

The Loaded Bolds collection will be available at Maybelline counters starting May 2017 for only P299. Seriously, you guys, that's way too cheap for the quality and formulation of these lipsticks! I'm actually willing to pay more for these! Thank you for making prettifying ourselves easier on our pockets, Maybelline!

Here's a photo of the products I used on my face for this post. Everything from Maybelline! I'm so excited to share my reviews on all the other products with you guys. ♥
