My first lipstick - Maybelline Colour Sensation Sweet Pink

Yep you read right, I've never bought or used lipstick before!

Since it was 3 for 2 at Superdrug and Tony was offering to treat me I decided to pick one up. I didn't really think too much about the brand, I kind of went to the first section I could see. I tried a few and decided on Sweet Pink (132) from Maybellines ColourSensation range.
I'm not very good at photographing make up, or my face so please bear with the shoddy photos - I'm hoping to get a new camera for christmas :)
I really like this colour, it's subtle enough to wear everyday (which I might start doing!) The consistency is really nice too, which I didn't expect as I'm easily irritated by products on my face :)

Along with this I also bought the GOSH Light'N Shine in 01. It's a clear ligloss with fine glitter in it. This is the one with the mirror on the side and the light under the lid to help with the application...
I thought it would be a really great way to turn the Maybelline lipstick from day to night appropriate, and I really like the way it looks. My only criticism is that the formula is a little sticky, but not something I can't live with.

Have you tried either of these? ♥
