Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Color – Very Cherry Review

Hey Beautiful Gals,

I am back with another red as stated earlier.  I have gone crazy for plums and reds now! Totally loving winters with lavishing reds and plums everywhere.  Though the color is quite appealing and undoubtedly gorgeous, but I feel this particular colorsensational lip product can be skipped. Read on further to know more about “Very Cherry.”



$ 7.49 for 0.15 Oz (4.2 g), may vary from store to store.

Very Cherry 1

Product Description:

Smoother, more nourished lips instantly. The freshest, most fabulous color. Color sensational lip color’s exclusive nourishing honey nectar dramatically hydrates beyond perfection. Discover a sensational improvement in overall lip appearance.

Very Cherry 8

The soft lip color comes in an ordinary packaging with see-through semi opaque cap. Nothing fancy about its packaging other than the travel-friendly case. It is mildly scented which remains for a few minutes after application.

My Experience with Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Color – Very Cherry:

I have heard a lot about Maybelline, but never got a chance to try them until I decided to try my hands at full on makeup art.  It’s so hard to choose a handful of goodies out of the million and zillions of beautiful products. I was totally lost in beauty section of our nearby mall when I was supposed to pick any one red shade to match my Aadya’s upcoming birthday bash outfit P Anyhow, I managed to choose “Very Cherry” shade out of 50+ shades of Colorsensational series alone.  Though the packaging was unappealing, the swatches were damn gorgeous and promising.  Very Cherry is yet another beautiful red from the “Colorsensational” series after “Color Whisper.”

Very Cherry 5

As the name suggests, its a bluish pink kind of shade which ultimately imparts a healthy glow on the face. Thankfully, it does not contain shimmer.  The secret behind its soft, silky touch! I believe many of us, be it fair, light or wheatish, medium skin toned beauties will easily pull it off.  Earlier I used to believe that red, maroons are “auntijee” shades as I used to look matured and rough, but this soft cherry red makes me feel so youthful and innocent you know.  Feels like my college days are back again. Other than that, we already know about their ultra soft and hydrating texture gals.

Very Cherry 6

The lipstick is so soft that it tends to melt if I keep it under direct sunlight, even though the temperature is freezing low.  Hence I feel it has to be refrigerated during freaking summers! Maybelline lipsticks are so for me after Color Whisper and Vivid, but its highly disappointing to notice comparatively low staying power due to highly transferring lip color.

Very Cherry 7

You won’t believe my hubby narrates my whole day’s eating schedule just by looking at the lipstick marked cups and plates 😛 Even my baby can’t play with me as she becomes monkey red after our playing sessions 😛 Totally embarrassing for me to sip a cup in front of anyone as it leaves stubborn marks like any other cheap brand.

It has just 4 hours of staying power, washes away after a meal, leaving behind a subtle sheen. I never experienced this before hence, I feel I should skip Maybelline lipsticks except Color Vivid and High Shine Lip Glosses.

Let’s sum up the pros and cons:

Pros of Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Color – Very Cherry:

  • Beautiful cherry red shade, bluish pink.
  • Travel friendly case.
  • Soft, hydrating lip color.
  • Easy to apply, mild scented lipstick.
  • Does not dry on the lips or bleed.

Cons of Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Color – Very Cherry:

  • Highly transferring color.
  • Ordinary packaging.
  • Low staying power.
  • It may melt if kept under direct sunlight, even in winters.

Well I could not find anything special about “Colorsensational” lispticks to go ga ga, though they are nice and smooth! I feel I won’t purchase them again, though I would at least try other shades from New Color Vivids and Color Whisper range of Maybelline!

Hope it may help you! Take Care gals 🙂
