Break the Mould with Maybelline Loaded bolds {Review and Swatches}

They are bright, vibrant and hydrating, and the pigmentation is insane!

The Maybelline Loaded Bolds is a sure winner, if you like lipstick shades that are comfortable and with satin/matte finish, these are for you!

In my opinion, I find matte lipsticks to be the most pigmented with a dry formula, beautiful and long-wearing . .  but oh so uncomfortable.

However, with the  Maybelline Color Sensational® Loaded Bolds  you get, maximum opacity and maximum comfort.

The hyper-colour pigments give the lipstick its opacity and the creamy clay base deliver one-stroke intensity.


It also has honey nectar leaves a creamy finish. Maybelline’s Colour Sensational The Loaded Bolds is available in a range of shades from deep plums and electric blues (I think I pass on the blues) to vibrant reds and natural nudes.

Color Sensational® Loaded Bolds Lipstick, delivers MAC’s Amplified formula, with a satin finish, not super creamy, butnot full-on-my lips are dying matte.

Downside, it  transfers like crazy, which I don’t like. I like that I can dust a bit of translucent powder over top to make the lippies as  matte as I want  and increase the staying power, a tad.

I have the shades:

Midnight Merlot – a deep burgundy

Fiery Fuschia – a bright pink


Orange Danger – bright orangey red (Dupe For MAC’s Lady Danger)

Berry Bossy – A  smoked purple


It it really saturated with pigment: It stained my hands after the swatches!

I doesn’t settle into fine lines because never dries down super-matte. You don’t feel like you’ve lost sensation on your lips. Believe me, some super-pigmented matte lippies, are so drying you forget that you have lips and it becomes a problem when you smile, legit, serious.

Is this my fave drugstore lipstick formula? No, but it’s in the top 5.

The packaging sets itself apart from the other Maybelline Colour Sensational ranges because it has a royal blue cap blue and a silver tube with the shade and co-ordinating colour label on the bottom.

I appreciate that , especially when I’m in a hurry and I have no time to read the names and all that dee-daa-doo.

Final Thoughts

There is nothing bad to say about the lipstick except that is transfers, then again, no one promised it would be 24-hour-long wear.

Where to buy: selected Maybelline counters nation-wide or find it online at, or selected Maybelline counters nationwide.

Price: R110 – DATS NOT SSSSPENSIVE, worth the hype and worth your coin!
