Reader Lip Swatches: 18 of 20 Shades in the New Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Collection

Eighteen of the new Maybelline The Loaded Bolds Lipsticks as worn by reader Nikki

I want to thank longtime reader Nikki (@recycledstardust on Instagram and The Cosmeholic on YouTube) for this one! Nikki purchased all 18 of the new Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lipsticks that are now popping up at Target stores and kindly shared the above collage with us! There are twenty shades total in this collection but the white shade, Wickedly White, and black shade, Pitch Black, are not available in the Target display (as I mentioned in a previous post, I expect that those two shades will be available once the entire collection moves to the permanent display at Target and other retailers; you can see swatches of both of those shades HERE).

Nikki also has a live swatch video HERE that you should definitely check out, because she discusses the formula, texture, and performance of all 18 shades. Her video is incredibly helpful, especially if you find this display locally and feel a bit overwhelmed. After watching her video, I think I know exactly which shades I want to pick up (Raging Raisin, Berry Bossy, Sapphire Siren and Midnight Blue; the last two are way out of my comfort zone but I neeeed them!).

Thanks again, Nikki, for the fantastic pics. I really appreciate it!


  1. Sapphire Siren is making me feel some kind of way...

    1. Me too! It may be time for he to try blue!

  2. I wonder if Gone Greige might help me mute some of my crazy bright lipsticks without lightening them a lot....hmmm...

  3. These look beautiful in the swatches! I'm going to go watch the video now; thank you for sharing. I think I definitely need Gone Griege in my life.

  4. These popped up on ultas site today and the Katy lipsticks if anyone is looking for either.
