Before I get into the product itself, let's talk about the packaging. I adore the packaging on these. It's a super lightweight, slimline case. These lipsticks are a tad taller than an average maybelline lipstick, but quite a bit slimmer, which is great because they take up very little space in your bag or your makeup storage area. The caps somewhat coordinate with the color of the lip product inside, and the cursive font that spells out the "whisper" is adorable. I really love the packaging on these!

All of these lip colors leave a very nice, glossy finish to the lips. None of them are particularly long lasting. They're very sheer and moisturizing which is great, but doesn't lend itself to long wear. Each of these lasts about 3-4 hours on the lips if I am not eating or drinking. But, due to their sheer nature they are very easy to reapply without worrying too much about application. The only one that you really even need a mirror for is Berry Ready, and even that one is very forgiving.
Overall I really love these lipsticks. I might like them even more than my beloved Revlon Lip Butters, if you can believe it. I think I have a very nice variety of shades, but I definitely want to invest in more in the future. Luckily, as far as I can tell, these lip colors are part of Maybelline's permanent collection, so they will be sticking around for a while! Do you own any of the Maybelline Coor Whisper lipsticks?
