Maybelline Colorsensational Lipcolor in Born With It No. 015: My New Favorite Pinky Nude Drugstore Lipstick Review & Swatches

Purchased by me
Meet my new favorite pinky nude drugstore lipstick: Maybelline Colorsensational Lipcolor in Born With It!
According to Maybelline, their Colorsensational Lipcolors have "crisper color from pure pigments" and a "creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar". I have yet to find the list of ingredients- it was neither under the label on the package, nor was I able to locate it on the Maybelline website. However, I suspect that it contains other moisturizing agents since my lips feel comfortably hydrated when I wear it. 

 • Crisper color from pure pigments
 • Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar
 • Lipcolor so rich, so stunning…it’s sensational

Born With It No. 015 is a lovely pinky nude with a creamy shimmer-laden finish. It has a lovely sheen that plays beautifully with the light, but I would not classify the finish as glossy. The coverage is buildable, and looks beautiful whether sheered out or built up to near full opacity. It is comfortable wearing with a nice amount of cushion, and I get several hours of wear out of a single application. There is a fragrance/taste that is somewhat fruity, and that may be a put-off for people who don't like or can't tolerate fragrance in their lip products.
The color is itself divine. It is the perfect pinky nude that is definitely a more cool blue-based color that works very well with my complexion.
Overall assessment: I am really loving Born With It! It is well worth your consideration if you love nude pinks! 

I purchased mine from CVS during a sale, and spent around $4.00. However, the regular price is between $6.50-$8.50 depending on where you shop. Stock image from Maybelline. (unaffiliated links provided for your convenience).
