Skin tone: Fair to medium
Maybelline comes up with new stuff often and even when I have 100 lipsticks from the brand, I still look for a new one. Recently, Maybelline has launched two new ranges called “powder matte” and “creamy matte“. I am more of a matte lipstick fan, so I bought few lipsticks from the powder matte range. So let’s get started with the review of the shade “Get Red-Dy” 🙂

My Experience with Maybelline Color Sensational Get Red-Dy Powder Matte Lipstick:
Packaging: Maybelline Color Sensational Get Red-Dy Powder Matte Lipstick comes in a deep maroon plum packaging with a silver base. The packaging looks a lot similar to the other lipsticks from the Color Sensational range. The lipstick comes wrapped in a plastic cover with “powder matte” written over it. But, I hate the fact that the name isn’t printed on the case as the name gets thrown away with the plastic wrapper, the moment I open it. The shade name is printed on the base, so it is a bit inconvenient to see it every time. The lipstick would have been so much better if it was color-coded, but it has the shade name at the base, so that settles it. The packaging is handy and good-looking too. The bullet works well with a twist-up mechanism, so there are no flaws with the packaging.
Shade: The shade, “Get Red-Dy” is a gorgeous, deep red color, which I would call as a perfect red shade. I love how subtle it looks on the lips and women who were always scared to use a hot-to-handle shade can try this one as it will look subtle yet gorgeous on the lips. Initially, the shade looks like a tomato red, but once you build up the color, it looks more of a deep cranberry red color. It is a beautiful shade for all the skin tones and all the occasions too. The pigmentation is pretty okay in the first swipe, but the moment you swipe it for 2-3 times, you would love the color.
Texture, consistency and finish: The lipstick glides very smoothly onto my lips without any effort. It provides a non-drying matte finish to the lips, which I love. The lipstick doesn’t cling onto the dry flakes on my lips and doesn’t settle into the fine lines too. I love the super matte finish of this lipstick.
Staying power: The lipstick stays for around 5-6 hours on my lips. It survives full meals with a slight fading. However, it does not fade away completely; it leaves a bright stain, which can be easily removed with a makeup remover. So, if you love matte lipsticks, pick this one up.
