I hope everyone here is having an amazingly gorgeous week. I cannot express in words how grateful I am for your beautiful and encouraging comments in my last review – New York Color Liquid Lipstick: Liz. Thank you so much for welcoming me so warmly in our own little sanctuary that is IMBB 🙂
Now, today, I am reviewing this latest lip gloss that I purchased, from my most beloved brand Maybelline. It’s from the color sensational high shine range which they recently launched in India. Mine is called “Electric Shock.” 😛 Lovely name don’t you think? 😀
Rs. 350 for 5 ml.
- 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 10 arresting shades.
Available in 10 shades from subtle to eye-popping colors. They are Almond Crush, Electric Shock, Plum Luster, Iced Chocolate, Glisten up Pink, Captivating Coral, Mirrored Mauve, One Shine Day, Gleaming Grenadine, and Luminous Latte.
My Experience with Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lip Gloss in Electric Shock:
Firstly, I would like to say that there are only a few lip glosses that amaze me and I have tried a lot. So, I can strongly vouch that this is one of those products which you can rely on even with your eyes closed. The packaging, according to me, is very classy and also is quite similar to that of Lotus Purestay lip gloss range.
See the similarity?
LHS Maybelline Electric Shock and RHS Lotus Purestay Lip Gloss in Darling Lavender.
The applicator is the typical Maybelline doe-foot applicator which, as they claim, will adjust to the lips as and when you are applying the gloss. It’s sturdy and quite handy.
Electric Shock is a cool, blue-based pink with no shimmers. This is typically what I call a “Barbie Doll Pink.”
Since it is a blue-based pink, it will make your teeth appear whiter, which I feel, is an advantage and the color, although appears initially to be very nude, baby pink color, is actually quite flamboyant and slightly fuchsia-ish. When the gloss starts to fade away after 3-4 hours, it leaves behind a beautiful ruby pink stain. Its long-lasting nature is what I love the most, apart from the color that is.
Here’s the hand swatch:
It glides on very smoothly and does not leak or bleed which is great. Although, it does transfer a little bit, but that’s only a little bit. So, that can be ignored and it is so so so moisturizing.
So, overall I am very satisfied with the product.
Pros of Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lip Gloss in Electric Shock:
- Easily available.
- Stylish packaging.
- Very moisturizing.
- Well pigmented and will easily cover tanned lips.
- Does not bleed.
- Does not settle into fine lines.
- The color is very buildable; it goes from demure light pink to bold electric pink within seconds, depending on its application.
- Long lasting.
Cons of Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lip Gloss in Electric Shock:
- The list of ingredients is not mentioned, but for such an amazing product, I am hardly bothered.
- May not suit dark complexions.
Apart from this, I found no other cons.
Here are the lip swatches:
