My Experience with Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick Vibrant Violet:
It has been quite some time since Maybelline New York Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick range was launched in India. One of the most raved lipstick ranges from Maybelline, this offers matte finish lippies but with a creamy texture. There are a total of 15 shades in this range and the shade range has something to offer to every skin tone. I picked a purple lip colour because I’m pretty obsessed with purple lipsticks these days.
The packaging is nothing new to Maybelline buyers. The lipstick comes in a usual Maybelline packaging with a translucent mauvish brown cap that has a matte finish. The shade name is mentioned via a colour-coordinated sticker, which makes the shade identification easier. The cap shuts in place properly with an audible click. Overall, the packaging is simple and travel-friendly.
Just as the shade name describes, it is a vibrant, beautiful purple colour that has a pinkish undertone, which looks gorgeous on my lips. The moment I opened the cap, I instantly fell in love with this gorgeous purple. It gives me a feeling of wearing purple orchid flowers on lips. This shade is perfect for fall season. But it is a bold shade and is not meant for daily wear. You have to be really confident to pull off this shade.
It is well suited for fair to medium skin tone. This will not be a good choice for dusky beauties. Maybelline lipsticks have a beautiful fragrance which I absolutely love and this one too is no exception. This could be a concern for people who don’t like fragrant lipsticks.
Pigmentation is bang-on. On my lips, it just needed a single swipe for getting the true colour pay off. For pigmented lips, you might need more swipes for opaque coverage. Be rest assured that this will hide lip pigmentation well.
I am quite impressed with the texture of this lipstick. It glides on my lips so smoothly without any pulling or tugging. I love matte lipsticks but most of them do dry out my lips. But with this lipstick, you have no such issue. It will give a beautiful semi-matte velvety finish with a buttery texture which is just great. It provides a good amount of hydration to your lips and gives you healthy looking lips. It does not feel heavy on lips due to its velvety finish.
The formula is non-drying and does not feel sticky at all. It does not get patchy and gives an even application when you start to layer it. It does not settle into the fine lines of your lips. However, this lipstick is not completely transfer-proof. It transfers slightly but that can be ignored as the colour intensity does not get affected due to this.
Before application, I apply Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Concealer so that the natural colour of my lips gets neutralised and I can get the exact colour pay off of this shade. In order to get healthy looking lips, don’t forget to exfoliate your lips and moisturise them with a lip balm. Overall, the formulation is great and lures you to hoard more lipsticks from this range.
It stays for about 4-5 hours on my lips after which it starts fading from the centre of my lips. This lipstick can survive normal drinks or snacks but having oily food will fade away the colour intensity. When this fades away, it does not leave behind any stain on my lips. However, I need to reapply it. But reapplication does not make my lips patchy, so I am okay with it. Removal of this lipstick is also very easy. It gets removed easily using the Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water or any other makeup remover.
The colour is truly awesome and so is the matte but creamy consistency. The staying power is good as well. I love this range and will definitely more shades from this range.
