Lipsticks are such an important part of every girl’s vanity. I wish I could own all the lip colors in the world! Okay a little too much, but I really like lipsticks of all kinds. Be it glossy, creamy or matte. Personally, I like mattes better because they are more intensely pigmented and last longer. The lipstick that I am going to be reviewing today belongs to the jewel collection of color sensational lipstick range by Maybelline in the shade “Mauve Mania.” Read further to know more.
Maybelline New York’s Color Sensational Lip Color is crisp, bold color from pure pigments for a beautiful, lasting look. The rich, creamy formula with nourishing honey nectar provides a velvety feel, while moisturizing your lips. It’s lip color so rich, so stunning…it’s sensational.
$7.79 dollars approximately.
My Experience with Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Color in Mauve Mania:
The packaging is simple and classy. The bullet comes in a jewel-themed purple sheer cap and the bullet itself is in bright silver color. I personally like the base of the bullet. It is square and seems like a magnificent stage for the lipstick to shine on, I love it. The lipstick has a reasonable sturdy packaging and will prove to be quite travel friendly.
Coming to the shade, it’s a lovely, completely opaque, pinky-purple shade, but at the same time it’s got enough pink to keep it from being outlandish. Not “flat” looking, just a nice, natural flattering color. I think many skin tones could wear this shade. It’s something you could wear every day if you like. It is a versatile lipstick and very close to MAC’s Plumful – also doesn’t give you the dreaded blue lips.
The application however is smooth and does not tug or pull the lips. However, this does settle in the fine lines which I really do not like as it makes the lips look unhealthy and rather aged. It is not drying at all, it stays true to color, does not get gummy or funky feeling; just wears very nicely. If I get 4 hours out of a lipstick anymore, it is doing great, and I do get about 4 hours out of this, so for me that is a well-behaving lipstick. Also does not bleed, settle in lines, smear easily or smudge.
The smell of this however is not appealing, there is something about it that really puts me off and I really do not like it. Apart from this little con, it is a good lipstick with an affordable price tag.
