Product Description:

Lavish lips with a molten hot glaze. More Vibrant Color from pure liquid pigments.  Cleaner Shine from our 100% wax-free gloss.  Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar.  Now, gloss goes gutsy in 12 arresting shades.  For Best Results: Use the wand to apply lip gloss starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to outer edges of your lips, following the contour of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.

Ingredients:

Polyisobutene, OctyldodecylNeopentanoate, Hydrogenated Styrene/Methyl Styrene/Indene Copolymer, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Hydrogenated Castor Oil Isostearate, Hydrogenated Styrene/Butadiene Copolymer, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Isopropyl Isostearate, Pentylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Parfum/Fragrance, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Alumina, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Silica, Polyethylene Terephthalate, Citral, Aluminum Hydroxide, Mel/Honey/Miel, Acrylates Copolymer, Limonene, Tin Oxide, Dimethicone, NelumbiumSpeciosum Extract/NelumbiumSpeciosum Flower Extract, Chlorella Vulgaris Extract. May Contain: Mica, CI 77891/Titanium Dioxide, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499/Iron Oxides, CI 45410/Red 28 Lake, CI 15850/Red 7, CI 45380/Red 22 Lake, CI 15985/Yellow 6 Lake, CI 19140/Yellow 5 Lake, CI 42090/Blue 1 Lake, CI 75470/Carmine.

Packaging:

The gloss comes in a plastic tube, but if you look at it from a distance, it looks like glass. The tube looks very classy and almost crystal like, if you inspect it closely. The lid is silver and sturdy. The wand is very cheap, I feel like it will break of if I press it too much.

My Take on Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Lip Gloss in Captivating Coral:

So, I bought this lip gloss because I was smitten by the model’s lips on the promotional poster. The orange looked so luscious and juicy (creepy!) on her lips. It was an impulse buy, but I don’t regret it one bit. The color isn’t as pigmented as they show on the model, but you could get it close enough if you layer it a couple of times (does not feel heavy at all). This gloss is light enough to be worn to work or to a small get-together and vibrant enough after you layer it a few times for night.

Coral Lip Gloss 2

The texture is so smooth and creamy, smoother (and lighter) than the L’Oreal Infallible 8 HR Lip Gloss I reviewed. My lips felt hydrated and soft after applying it. The shine and color was so loud and clean on my lips. I definitely agree with the company’s description: “Lavish lips with a molten hot glaze.” That’s exactly how my lips felt and looked. There’s so much going on in this lip gloss all at once that makes it irresistible. It has a mild fruity scent when you first apply it, but goes away in a few minutes.

Coral Lip Gloss 3

The lip gloss is not long lasting; it stays for about 2-3 hours, including snacks. It doesn’t survive meals. The gloss completely disappears after a meal and even after the gloss fades off, my lips stay soft and hydrated all day. The gloss does transfer a lot, I was drinking green tea once and all the gloss transferred to my cup (not cool!), and when I was eating a burger, the gloss started sticking on to the bread. But then all the glosses do that, so I can’t complain much.

I don’t like the wand. I can’t apply the gloss correctly; the wand feels really cheap and weak.

Coral Lip Gloss 4

Overall, I really like this lip gloss, its creamy, light, hydrating, and luscious. I could wear it every day, but I really hate the wand, its so thin and cheap looking, I am afraid to put pressure on it. I feel like it would break off.
