Ola Beautiful Girls,

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Velvety Wine

Needless to say that I have now become a huge fan of lipsticks because of IMBB. I was having a lipstick tester pack from Amway Attitude and I was quite happy with that until I became addicted to IMBB. After reading so many nice reviews of lipsticks and looking at gorgeous Rati’s pictures, I finally decided to buy another lipstick for me. I wanted to start with budget items first, so I surfed for budget lipsticks on IMBB and zeroed in on “Maybelline Watershine” lipsticks.

Upon further research and some more reading of reviews (including the COMMENTS), I decided to buy Watershine Pure B22. Everything was decided and I was excited, and with the great spirit, I reached the Maybelline counter. I asked for B22 and got the billing done.  I was so happy and proud because I had shopped for something within half a minute, guess it is a world record for shopaholics!! :dance:

When the SA made the bill and I was about to leave, she interrupted me and told me about their offer of “buy 2 get 1 free.”  She didn’t even require to get pushy with me because I had already fallen for the offer. Seeing my record collapsing and cursing myself, I started looking for another lipstick. I picked MF21 and asked for the free one. The SA showed me two lipsticks from which I could choose the free one. One was horribly brown and the second was this bright pink lipstick called “Maybelline Color Sensational Velvety Wine.”  For the record, I also got a Maybelline Watershine lip gloss as well.


Were mentioned, but I have lost the cover. :((


Rs. 220 (but I got it as free).

My Take on Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Velvety Wine:

Before starting my take on the lipstick, let me tell you that Maybelline’s lipsticks have a tendency to break easily.  After testing the tester lipstick, when I got my lipstick packed, the SA tried to open the packed one without taking the package off.  It actually came off and the lipstick in that was already broken inside the case. So, I asked for another fresh piece.  When I opened the lipsticks at the counter itself, to my shock, MF21 and “Velvety Wine” lipsticks were broken inside the case itself, but B22 was okay.  I took fresh pieces but with a bit of hesitation.  I was handling them with immense care and not using them much while travelling.  All the three lipsticks I bought are in a good condition till now, but still, I will recommend everyone to open their lipsticks at the counter itself before coming home with them.

Now, about Velvety Wine.  It is a bright pink, but not baby pink color. It comes in a chocolate-y case. It is very well pigmented and glides easily on the lips. Velvety Wine is very creamy in texture and one swipe is enough to get a good coverage. Because my lips are pigmented at the corners, I swipe more to cover corners well. Here are the snaps taken in natural light and flash light of the camera. I have not liked this color so much because it is not either a peach or pink. It is 2-3 tones darker to pink and it has got shine as well.

This lipstick is not matte, actually has a little shine to it.  So, you won’t require lip gloss.  I have applied watershine lip gloss just to see its effect.

Staying power is pretty less. On me, it stayed like 1-2 hours and after that only a bright stain remained for the next 1-1/2 hour.  It may survive meals, but it did not survive ice-cream 😀

  1. yes Rashmi V.S, :yes: :)) i agree with you.. shopholics shopping within half a minute, is a record in itself. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: i like the the color how it looks on you in the second last pic though… :)) 🙂

  2. Nice review Rashmi :yes: The last 2 pics look so different from each other :methinks: Which pic look more like the actual color on the lips?

  3. hey very nice review Rashmi. it does come across as more pink than it actually is. and watershine are amazing too. I have recently ordered the B22 and cant wait after seeing your post. Maybelline is beginning to grow on me as a brand. and i wasnt aware that they break easy so thanks for that alert.

    1. Oh yes, they break like nothing else. Could you believe, many of the packed lipsticks (SA mentions them as so called ‘Fresh pieces’) go into pieces.. SA accidentely gave me M21 than MF21, that was also broken. I guess the SAs at the counter where I bought lippies are careless.. nways B22 is awesome.. all the best!!

  4. it’s a lovely color rashmi if i go by just your lovely lip swatches. but I can understand when we don’t like a certain color for ourselves it becomes difficult to make it work. :))

  5. But it looks pretty on ur lips Rashmi…. :haanji: i know what its like not liking the color on urself. I hv a few of these kinds and trust me even though i myself do not like them different ppl have complimented me on the shades.So i guess you can still use it once in a while. :puchhi:

  6. haha.. same with me.. as you can see in the above comments itself, people are complimenting me for the color it shows on my lips. so i guess i should keep using it more frequently :toothygrin:
