Maybelline Color Whispers Lip Color in 35 / 430 Coral Ambition: Review and Swatches

Hello my lovelies! Hope you had a fab weekend and are now off for a great start of the week! I had a lovely relaxing weekend and I managed to catch up on my favorite blogs and we also celebrated my dad’s Birthday, which was super exciting because I got to meet my whole family! <3 I feel so full of ideas of blog posts at the moment and I don’t even know where to start from so if you have something particular that you want to see me doing, let me know! :) For today I wanted to do a review of some of the new beauty bits that I got recently and it is Maybelline Color Whisper Lip Color in Coral Ambition.

I recently did a review on my favorite shade from the bunch (Pink Possibilities) and many of suggested to try Coral Ambition as well so I went ahead and got it straight away! :) It is a beautiful light coral with strong peach undertones to it and I absolutely love it. In the tube. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look very flattering on my lips. As I said, the shade is quite light and it washes me out a lot. I am extremely pale so I am sure the problem is in my behalf but if you have very light skin tone and you’re not a fan of nude lips I highly suggest you to go swatch it in the store. I am sure though that as I’m getting tanner from the sun now, this color would look very pretty on me and I can’t wait to wear it! The Color Whispers are relatively sheer but still give a decent amount of color to the lips, especially if you build it up. My lips are naturally darker so I have to apply multiple coats to get it fully opaque but this doesn’t bother me too much. (: They go on like charm because they’re quite soft and creamy and have beautiful glossy finish.

The formula of the Color Whispers is gel-like and definitely has a lip balm feel to it. They are a little bit more watery for my liking but it’s still lovely; I just prefer more creamy consistency. The Whispers are pretty moisturizing and don’t dry out my lips. What I love most about these is that they are not waxy or sticky at all and they feel very smooth and soft on the lips. Sadly, the staying power of these beauties isn’t their strongest point and they last on my lips for about an hour, which is such a shame. Luckily I don’t mind reapplying often but I know that for most of you this will be a huge turnoff! :( The Color Whispers come in a colored transparent packaging, which is very sleek and lovely. I don’t know why the ones that we have in my country doesn’t have the ‘Color Whisper’ label on them, I know that the ones in the States have it but oh well… The smell of these gems reminds me of vanilla and luckily the scent is not too overpowering. (:

In a nutshell, I really do love the Color Whispers in general, but sadly Coral Ambition doesn’t look great on me. If you have darker skin tone though, I’m sure it would look fab with maybe a smokey eye or just as a little pop of color. The consistency of these babes is lovely and they feel so soft and smooth on the lips! On a downside, however, they are not very long lasting but nonetheless I love them and I’ll have a look at some of their brighter and more vibrant shades and I suggest you do the some! :)

Have you tried the Coral Whispers? What do you think about them? <3

Lots of love,


  1. I think the colour is lovely but I think the fact the it isn't particularly long lasting would put me off a bit. I don't really like having to reapply lipstick multiple times throughout the day!


  2. what a lovely shade , perfect for summer time!


  3. Thankyou so much for this! I was literally just looking for colour whispers and I was a bit confused with which colour to buy, and whether I should buy them at all! This made it so much clearer, THANKYOU!

  4. This looks really pretty must check if these are out in Ireland yet!

  5. This shade looks amazing, but sadly I think it will emphasize dry patches...

  9. I wish they just packaged this as a tinted balm because the color payoff is really just a "whisper" :P

  11. These colours look amazing! I will have to check it out.


  12. I wish the colour whispers were for sale where I live, you take the best photos! Such gorgeous colours xx


  13. Really want to give one of these a go!


  14. This looks like an absolutely beautiful colour, but the staying power would totally put me off. Have you tried the Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede lipsticks yet? They stay on forever and have some lovely colours, I've been raving about them ever since I tried them, haha. Michaela xoxo


  15. This is so pretty I love the colour it looks slightly iridescent!? Gorgeous!

  17. Gorgeous colour! I never wear lipsticks though they just don't seem to suit me, I always look too overdone. x

  18. This is such a pretty shade of lipstick. Very summery x

  19. I haven't tried them, but they look amazing, I definitely should How much do they cost?


    1. I am pretty sure they are around $6 hun! :) xx

  20. I really enjoy the way you write your reviews! I haven't tried Maybelline Color Whispers and wanted to get it, but this review made me rethink about purchasing it. I tend to forget to reapply lip products so it might be a bother that Color Whispers fades rather quickly. Great review, can't wait to read more!

  21. love the colour!! obssessed with coral lately :) xx


  22. I bought this in the color "orange attitude" which I really like! I agree with you about the gel like consistency but I don't mind it too much because I wear it very casually; this isn't the kind of product I would wear out at night. I don't know if you've tried the Revlon Lip Butters but they are similar that they're very moisturizing but definitely have a more creamy consistency!

  24. Omg.... can I just say how much I love your photos and this layout??? And lol, I have that one from Maybelline. Lol I got three colors and they all swatched out sooo similarly. Coral Ambition and Pink Possibilities were one of them. I like the formula and color!

  41. GORGEOUS! I've been hearing so many good things about the color whispers! Too bad about this color, are you going to buy some other colors? Sounds like they are kinda like the lip butters, as far as formula and lasting power...what do you think? Comparable?
    Another great review, Andrea!
