Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner Velvet Beige 630 Review

:toothygrin: it’s a lip liner for a change. I can now safely say that I have researched and almost exhausted maybelline lip range err or lipstick range for you guys and so I picked up a lip liner which I should say would cost you almost same as their moisture extreme lippy :stars: I needed some lip liners not want or lust after for a change :P and so I thought let me see what maybelline has on offer. But I was so disappointed to see just some three or four liners including a deep maroon and no twist up style ones. perhaps the counter dint have any but from what I like was just this one nudey beige color to go for all light lippies and mainly I use such lip liners to fill the lips first before applying lippy. The lippy stays and the color comes out well in my opinion and it really fades away beautifully too.

From the maybelline india site: Why You’ll Love It
• Keep your lip color looking beautiful with coordinated lip liners that won’t smudge, smear or bleed! s

Expert Tip
Line your lips starting in center of your upper lip. Work from the center to outer edges of your lips, following the contour of your mouth. Follow the same technique for your bottom lip. To extend the wear of your favorite lipstick or lip gloss, first fill in your lips completely with lip liner.

About the lip liner:
They just have six colors in total perhaps the counter did not have all . I remember the dark brown and the maroon one which were mmm passable. The only color that caught my eye was this velvet beige .The other shades are :
Choco pop
Stellar pink
Midnight plum
Copper brown
Hollywood red

So we can say that they do cover all the color families. And this one is perhaps the only nude color that I saw. When I swacthed it at the counter, I was not so super impressed but I thought okay . It should ideally set and not smudge and should have been creamier. But contrary to that it was on the hard side. Nevertheless I wanted to give maybelline a chance and I got it home. when I saw it again at home, I found it unusually smaller in size. The reason may be that all my other liners were twist up form mainly and they do contain smaller amount of product but are creamier I had expected it to be longer than this. Then I opened the seal which I don’t like which is so tightly bound plastic that it’s a pain to remove but never mind that. When I tried it at home, I saw that it has very very fine silver shimmer to it, say on a nude beige base.it was good somewhat above average in softness and not bad but still not as creamy s my twist up pencils. The color no doubt is gorgeous and I would have preferred it flat so to say but this one is glazy due to the shimmer. Then I tried smudging it immediately and it did smudge . then the second time around I gave it a minute to set and it did set to my happiness and smudged very teeny weeny bit.Over all, it is an above average to good liner which sets after application but it does smudge a tiny bit. It did a god job of lining and saving the lippy from bleeding but it tugged too. its not creamy soft and it can be a disaster for dry lips. Try using a balm before it but I never ever do that. So I use it as such and fill in the lips with this and use it as matte lippy too.its almost a nude lip liner and you may like it fro day wear.

Last word:
I expected more softness from it , more length, and a cheaper price say 150 or 175 for this. Its somewhere between above average to good but not mighty impressive.it sets after application but even after that it smudges a bit . :(  But then I think what lip liner would I get for a price of 200, so perhaps I may try some other shades from this.they definitely need to improve the formula and also make more colors.i found it a little tiny too :dumb: it could have been better for 200 rupees.the color is gorgeous and the shimmer does not look abd at all though!

It dsnt look bad for the price no but i guess that this price one can get bourjois lip pencils which are much creamier than this and have better color selection. :))
