Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick
Today I’m reviewing a lipstick from Maybelline that seems to be a favourite amongst bloggers. I’ve read raves about this particular shade on a lot of Indian blogs but couldn’t find a review of it on IMBB so I thought I would review it. This is one of the first lipsticks in my collection and definitely my first orange shade. Being new to lipsticks, I was a little hesitant about buying this shade. Moreover, one of the first shades I got from Maybelline was dusty rose. I bought it thinking it would be an everyday pink-mauvy colour but it was too dark for me. If the Bronze Orange shade had been more expensive, I would have reconsidered buying it but Rs 220 is an extremely affordable price point. I got a further 10% discount as I bought it at Beauty Fair which means I only paid Rs 198 for it. So there was no reason for me not to buy it 😉 Over the past year, I have experimented a lot with my looks and buying this was a part of the evolution of a daring, new me 🙂
I wasn’t disappointed with this lipstick. In fact, I love it. It is my absolute favourite out of the few that I own. I wear it all the time. When I’m meeting up with friends and constantly on a recent trip abroad. It is especially good for photos. I must have reapplied it almost every time we stopped to take pictures at monuments and museums. It brightened up my complexion in a jiffy and made me look really good in all the photos.
The colour is a mix of orange and pink. It is quite a bright colour but at the same time extremely wearable. It is a perfect way to sport the recent orange/bright lips trend.
The pigmentation is excellent and the colour shows up in just one swipe. The colour is also very glossy and moisturizing for a lipstick.
The texture of this product is smooth. It is also very light and there is no heaviness after applying. The color doesn’t bleed and there’s no need to use a lip liner unless you want to use it to increase the staying power. It is like you’ve applied a very thin layer of Vaseline petroleum jelly on your lips. This lipstick has the exact same feel on the lips.
That being said, it also wears off really quickly like Vaseline 😉 I haven’t tried it with a lip liner or a base but on its own, it has very poor staying power. On me, it lasts barely an hour or two and that is, if I don’t drink or eat anything. Also, in a very short time the color lightens up drastically and becomes a faint orange so you have to constantly reapply to keep the color looking bright.
It’s is cased in a metallic orange tube which I quite like. The tube is pretty sturdy and the lipstick doesn’t break easily. I always twist up only a few inches while using it so that there is no chance of any breakage happening. I find that doing this is not enough to prevent lakme lipsticks from melting and breaking. So, this is a definite plus with Maybelline moisture extreme lipsticks.
What I love about Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick
– Gorgeous, easily wearable pinky orange shade. Great for adding color to your complexion.
– Excellent pigmentation.
– Smooth application and light texture.
– It’s very moisturizing and doesn’t dry out lips at all.
– The fun metallic orange packaging. I’ve noticed many bloggers mention it as a minus but I quite like the colour of the tube.
– Doesn’t melt or break, even in summers.
– Doesn’t bleed at all irrespective of how many layers you pile on.
– The affordable price of Rs 220 and Rs 198 if you buy it in beauty shops.
– Good, sturdy packaging. No problems with the cap not closing.
What I Don’t Love About Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick
– Staying Power on its own is ridiculously poor so you might have to try it with lip liner to make it last a decent amount of time.
– The color fades very quickly to a light orange tint.
In conclusion, love everything about this shade and range except the staying power. If there was a way to make it stay on a bit longer, I would buy a lot more shades from this range. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to add a nice wearable, fun orange shade to their collection 🙂
