These were released awhile ago and provide a sheer wash of glossy color. Maybelline claims that these Color Whispers provide a gel-like, weightless finish to the lips with no heavy waxes or oils.

There's also no seal on the product. This means when you buy it in the store you really have to make sure no one has opened it before you purchase it. I'm always paranoid with accidentally buying a product someone's used at drugstores. This problem would easily be fixed if we had testers in our drugstores...
Anyways, the lipstick bullet is a lot thinner than regular lipsticks but I think that allows for easier application. Overall, the packaging is really sleek and pretty in my opinion.
Just like the claims these give a nice, glossy finish to the lips and they are very gel-like. When I wear this product there is no need for a gloss on top. Who Wore it Red-er is more of a pinky red color and Berry Ready is more of a red with a slight berry tone. Pin UP Peach is the sheerest formula and it's a nice peach color with a slight shimmer.
Berry Ready and Who Wore it Red-er are a lot more pigmented than I expected and Pin up Peach is more of a 'my lips but better' shade.
Because these have a glossier finish, the wear time isn't very long. I would say that these last for maybe 2-3 hours but the darker colors might leave a slight stain behind on the lips. If you have dry, flaky lips make sure you exfoliate your lips before. I've found that these do cling to dry patches on your lips and will make them stand out.

If you're looking for a glossy lip product that isn't super pigmented these will be perfect for you. If you're looking to try a bold, bright lip but are a little hesitant these will also be a great transition product for you.
If you want a matte or completely opaque product then these might not be for you.
