Review: Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lipstick in Raging Raisin

There are several shades I want from Loaded Bolds, but here is just one for now.

Say hello to the babely Raging Raisin.


As the name suggests, Raging Raisin is a rich raisin shade. A mix of plum and brown.



Maybelline promises “ultra hydration, vibrant color, creamy matte”.

It is a creamy matte, gives decent pigmentation, and is not drying but not ultra hydrating either.

I wore this for 5 hours straight before I saw slight fading toward the center of my lips. It wasn’t terribly significant, and when I drank a beverage it didn’t smear too much.

The color is rich and true to the bullet. It was opaque and not patchy or sheer.

It has that signature powdery scent Maybelline lipsticks are known for. It wasn’t particularly strong or overpowering for me.

Pros: Good pigmentation, lasts for at least 5 hours, affordable, not drying, goes on smooth.
Cons Isn’t too hydrating, has a scent that may bother some consumers.Β 

Grade: A

I paid $7.99 for this at Walgreens.
