Maybelline Color Whisper Lipsticks In Australia + Swatches

Hello lovelies. I hope you are all doing well. I'm sure everyone has heard of the Maybelline Color Whispers. The Color Whispers are the equivalent of the Revlon Lip Butters which I absolutely love. These lipsticks are raved a lot internationally. And these babies have hit Australian shores. Last Thursday I was at Priceline having my weekly dose of makeup browsing when I spotted a 'new' sign by the Maybelline section. I waddled over and saw these amazing lipsticks that I have waited forever for to come to Australia. I also noticed that there were five new nail polish shades added to their Color Show line called the Color Show Sequins. Now back to the lipsticks, at Priceline the Whispers cost $14.95. Which I think is decent considering Australia's outrages prices. There is 8 shades currently available in Australia. Unfortunately I didn't have the money to buy these lippies at the time but once I do have money I'll be going back and buying all of them, so the swatches below are in-store swatches. I apologize if the pictures are bad quality and aren't as accurate. I was planning to buy all of the lipsticks as a prize for a lucky reader. Let me know in the comments if that would be something you would be interested in winning. The packaging is fairly similar to the Revlon Lip Butters. The outside is in the shade of the actual lipstick. The word 'Whisper' is written on the side of the lid. I'm sorry that I didn't take a picture of the packaging. Now let's get onto the swatches:

L-R: 25 Lust for Blush, 40 Orange Attitude, 45 Who Wore it Red-er, 55 One Size Fits Pearl,  60 Petal Rebel, 65 Pink Possibilities, 90 Oh La Lilac, 95 Mad for Magenta

L-R: Lust for Blush, Orange Attitude, Who Wore it Red-er, One Size Fits Pearl
Lust For Blush: A muted cool-toned mauve pink. This shade would be perfect for those who love pinky nudes.
Orange Attitude: A juicy orange. I personally don't like to wear orange lipstick but this shade is a more of a toned down orange so if you're scared of wearing bold orange like I am I suggest you try this colour as it isn't as bold as other orange lipsticks.
Who Wore it Red-er: A red-dish pink. I absolutely adore the name of this lipstick. This is a mix between a red and a pink. For those of you that are afraid of red lipstick this may be the perfect way to start getting into red lips as this shade isn't as bold as a red, making it a little easier to wear.
One Size Fits Pearl: A sheer, barely there pink. This colour is a perfect natural, nude shade. It's nude but has a hint of pink. This would be perfect for those who would want to wear nude lips but are afraid of getting  the corpse look.

L-R: Petal Rebel, Pink Possibilities, Oh La Lilac, Mad for Magenta
Petal Rebel: A sheer, cool blue-based pink. This is quite sheer so it adds a subtle hint of pink to the lips.
Pink Possibilities: A medium-toned pink. This is the perfect neutral pink.
Oh La Lilac: Nice lilac pink. I personally don't like to wear these types of shades as I think it looks horrendous on me. But I do like it on other people.
Mad for Magenta: Fuchsia with tiny shimmers. The above picture didn't capture the shimmers really well.

This is my first ever swatch post, let me know if you enjoyed it and if it was helpful. Also let me know if you have tried these lipsticks and in what shade you have. Are you planning on buying any of the Color Whispers?
