Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick Dusky Mauve Review, Swatch 814:

I am so excited today to talk about my recent find the maybelline colorsensational lipstick in dusky mauve shade. This is my latest love and I could not believe I was missing this shade for so long. Off late I have started discovering maybelline and I have just collected four of them my major collection being Colorbar and Avon. Most of the lipsticks that I have are bricks and nudes and have been wearing them for so long that now I thought its time to shift domain to a little purples, mauves and pinks as well. I started with buying some cheap ones from Avon like plum perfect but the texture put me off. Then I decided to buy few from maybelline like chestnut and chocolate temptation .I got this one from pantaloons for 187 as 15 % off was going on. The mrp is 220 otherwise.im regretting buying just one lipstick though but im very happy with what I got. I was about to pick up the usual bricks again when this struck me as I was floored. I could not ask for a better transition from brick to mauve ….something between brown and mauve the most beautiful mix of mauve pink brick and brown in my opinion and one of the creamiest lipsticks I have. I don’t really care about staying power as I have to finish many and get many more :toothygrin:

About the lipstick:
Price Rs 220
Available at all maybelline counters
(I got this one from pantaloons)

I love maybelline for the variety in lipstick textures and the vast range of colours to pick from. Most browns and bricks are overlapping in shades and very wearable and that really confuses me a lot. Every time I go, I end up picking one or two and making a note of another five for the next time. Before picking up bronzy orange which I feel again is very coral and similar to so many in my collection. I had and urge to lean towards mauve these days and this one helped me in that slow transition towards mauve and purples.

dusky mauve

Dusky mauve is the perfect one for me as I wanted a change from usual bricks and browns and nudes. This lipstick is somewhere between brown and mauve with a hint of dark pink may be. It’s super creamy and renders a lot of color in just one swipe on the lips. It is super moisturising as the name says and I think even dry lipped girls should love it.

The texture is very much like Colorbar creamy matte ones almost like bare or pure innocence. In fact this one is a shade lighter than pure innocence the creamy matte one. Since I am unable to find Colorbar much here I am moving towards maybelline too. I never knew maybelline is even more affordable than Colorbar and had so many shades and textures to offer in the same color family.

What I love about Maybelline Lip Color in Dusky Mauve:

  • Universal color
  • Will be loved by girls who like mauves, bricks, browns and pinks
  • It’s a beautiful mix of mauve and brown
  • It’s super creamy with a little shine to it
  • No glitter or shimmer and neither is it matte
  • Can dab a single ply tissue and make it matte
  • Comes out more pigmented on the lips than in the tube
  • Can put gloss to make it high shine but my personal fav is matte
  • Sturdy packaging (I have never had a problem with any of my maybelline breaking at the base because of the soft texture, like all the elle 18 ones that I have
  • The color is exactly like the name sticker color
  • Super pricing
  • Last word , love love love the color
  • Goes well with my mauve and brown lip liners :)
  • Wearable anytime of the day

Same pinch! I have this & I LOVE it too! I have plenty of Maybelline lippies & I love them all. There’s one called Dusty Rose. Or maybe it’s Dusky Rose. Check that out. Also check out Natural Rosewood and Chestnut.
