Good base product but not a good stand alone.
Maybelline Wet Shine Fusion Lipstick

Maybelline Wet Shine Fusion Lipstick
Advantages: Comes in different colors
Disadvantages: Needs to be used with other lip items to get the shine effect that I was looking for.
I am always on the search for the next best thing for my lips. Recently I came across this little gem. I was in a hurry looking for some thing to give my lips shine and just to make them look a little better all the way around. I seen this pink tube and thought I would give it a try. I cant remember how much I paid for it but I am sure it was cheap as I am never willing to spend a lot of money on make up.
The first thing that I noticed about this tube of lipstick was its color it came in a nice pink color very pretty and feminine. The second thing that I noticed and just loved about this tube of lipstick was how the lip clipped on letting you know it was securely on the tube giving it the proper protection that a tube of lipstick needs. I don't know how many times I have had tubes in my purse that the lid falls off and the lipstick gets covered with junk its just gross. So for me this was a great design for the actual lipstick tube.
The color I got is called Blush Boost. it's a rather Salmon looking color not to pink and not to orange or red either. Just right. I thought however when I bought the tube of lipstick that it would provide shine as its called wet shine fusion. It did not provide the type of shine I was expecting it was rather more subdued and more glittery than shiny.
The other problem I had was that when I applied it I noticed that it was rather hard to apply and in order to blend it in on my lips I had to apply to me what felt like a ton of the product. Now that I have the product on my lips I am overwhelmed with a floral type scent and taste. Not what I want to be tasting every time I lick my lips. When I apply lipstick I do not want to taste or smell anything. If I do happen to taste or smell anything I am more apt to not use that item again.
So I had been wearing the lipstick for a while when I went to the bathroom to freshen up when I got in and had a look at my self in the mirror I was rather horrified by my appearance or more directly the state of my lipstick. It seems that the inner part of my lips had no lipstick left on them at all it had all worn away. The outer part of the lips still had a small amount of color still left on them but my lips were dry and there was no way to reblend the color back on to my lips in a more even way. As I looked at my self in the mirror a little longer I noticed that no only had the lipstick worn away it had started to bleed at the outside of my lips as well.
I tried the lipstick again and once again got the same results. I did have better results when I used it with a high shine lip gloss as well. I have also found after reading other reviews that using a lip liner will stop the lipstick from bleeding.
For a stand alone lipstick I would not recommend this product. If you don't mind taking a few extra minutes and adding a few extra items to your make up bag then this is the lipstick for you. However for me I will continue to look for the lipstick that last all day long no matter what I do and maintain a high gloss shine as well. Impossible I know but a girl can dream.
Summary: Decent product for use with other items not a good stand alone product.
