“Lip liner is a lipstick’s best friend.” O:) They can do so many things like defining a perfect lip shape, hide lip pigmentation, change the color of the lipsticks, to name a few. Since I review a lot of lipsticks, I thought I will talk about 3 of my Maybelline lip liners today.
- Maybelline Colorsensational Lip liner – 540 Hollywood Red.
- Maybelline Colorsensational Lip liner – 630 Velvet Beige.
- Maybelline Moisture Whip Waterproof Lip liner – Cranberry.
The Colorsensational lip liners are priced at Rs. 210 each. I am cannot exactly recollect the price of “Moisture Whip” liners, but they too are around Rs. 200 I guess.
All 3 of the liners are smooth and glide easily on the lips. The main difference between the Moisture Whip and Colorsensational liner is that the Colorsensational ones have tiny sparkles in them. It is not very obvious and you can see them only if you look very closely. The Moisture Whip lip liner has more staying power than the Colorsensational ones, since it is waterproof. They can be blended easily with the lipsticks. Once the lipsticks fade, there is no trace of the lip liners too. The liners do not smudge once set and keep the lipsticks intact within the lips.
You can fill the entire lips with these, but they are not very moisturizing. You will surely need to apply a lip balm if you are using it to cover the entire lips since it emphasizes the fine lines and dry areas of the lips. In that way, I will say that these lipsticks are not creamier enough and will tug at the lips. If applied all over the lips and in too much quantity, it has a tendency to shift around. So, if you are fully covering the lips with them, use in moderation.
Hollywood Red: It is not exactly red in color. It is like a deep pink with some red in it. I use it with my dark colored lipsticks. These are the swatches.
Cranberry: I love this color a lot. It is like a muted maroon color and goes perfectly well with almost all of my lipsticks. I use it under my nude lipsticks too to give it a depth so that it does not wash me out. These are the swatches.
Velvet Beige: It is a nude brown shade. I use it with my nude lipsticks and also for toning down my dark lipsticks. It can also be used under sheer lip glosses to hide the lip pigmentation. These are the swatches.
Do I Recommend Maybelline Lip Liners?
Yes, they are a set of good lip liners with decent staying power at an affordable price, but I do feel that, when their lipsticks are priced around Rs. 200 plus, they could have sold these for less than 200 Rs :-D
