Rose of Attraction

Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick range has been very hyped among the beauty community. If I'm not mistaken, the range is not yet available here in Germany. I was aware about the range from the lovely Paddy from Innenundaussen ( her blog is in german but lipsticks and blushes are universal language I believe :P ) so when I saw the range on the drugstore while I was in Riga, I was very excited. 
Unfortunately after I did some swatches, I was not really impressed with the texture, and the colors available, so I picked up only 1.

The packaging looks totally different from the ones Paddy showed on her blog, but after I did some researches, the packaging is different because I got the 'East Europe' edition since I bought it in Latvia. here . I personally prefer the american packaging because the one I got looks cheap and tacky with the bright transparant jelly pink bullet. 

I picked up the shade Rose of Attraction , a pretty bright pink with sheer pigmentation. The color is similar to my YSL sheer candy #4 but this one is less coral-y. It has some glitters which aren't really visible on the lips but are quite flaky I must say.

I had such a high expectation on this lipstick, but I have to say I am a bit disappointed. The texture feels very flaky because of the glitters. It feels like the lipstick has sand in it. The color I picked is very pretty though, but it appears on my lips much paler and washed out than it is seen on the pictures above. ( It looks very nice on the pictures, surprised me a lot, but sadly it doesn't look as nice on the real life.
The staying power is average but I didn't expect it to be impressive either. The texture of this lipstick is more slippery than balmy. Actually what I experienced from this lipstick is just all total opposite of what people experienced, so maybe I just got a one bad product. 

I am still curious to try on other shades as I believe I just picked up the wrong shade with this one.

Have you ever tried the Maybelline Color Whisper range? How do you like it?
