Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Liner – Midnight Plum Review

Hello Friends,

Today, I am going to review Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Liner in Midnight Plum.

Maybelline Colorsensational Lip liner Midnight Plum Review

I have fallen in love with lipsticks only after joining IMBB. Before IMBB, I had used lipsticks only once or twice and that too for wedding/parties only.  I am a bit shy to tell you people but its true that I didn’t own a single lipstick till I got introduced to IMBB; lipsticks, their colors, shades, and finishes were like “Greek and French” to me.

Since the day I have started using lipsticks, I prefer lining my lips before applying the lipstick. It not only prevents the lipstick from moving out of its defined area (read lips), but also gives a nice shape to the lips, which enhances the effect of lipstick on your face.

As Neha has already reviewed the same in Velvet Beige, I won’t be doing a separate review for that particular shade.

My Take on Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Liner – Midnight Plum:

The lip liner is a sharpen-able pencil with a transparent cap. The name of the shade is printed at the bottom of the liner. The texture is smooth and creamy and I did not have to tug or pull at it while applying. It takes some time to settle, otherwise it smudges if it is touched or rubbed just after applying. It stays on my lips for 3-4 hours. I mostly use it with my red lipstick (Lotus Red Rover), but the lipstick starts to bleed after the meals, so I am guessing that the liner must have vanished by that time.  I think the shade doesn’t do any justice to its name. The shade is more of a maroon-ish red kind with little plum undertones (I am very bad at describing shades!!)

Swatches: Top – natural Light, Bottom – With Flash

The plum undertones are completely invisible on the lips. The color of the pencil is same as that of the shade, so its easy to pick it from a bunch of liners.  I also own the Velvet Beige one.

Pros of Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Liner – Midnight Plum:

  • Plain color (matte finish) with no shimmers or frost.
  • Will go with most of the maroon or plum undertone lipsticks.
  • Glides easily on the lips.
  • Increases the staying power of the lipsticks.
  • Easily available.

Cons of Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Liner – Midnight Plum:

  • Doesn’t stay for long.
  • Smudges if smeared immediately after application.
  • As it is a sharpen-able pencil, a lot of product will get wasted while sharpening.
  • Ingredient list is missing.
  • The shade doesn’t match with its name.
  • Only 6 shades are available to choose from.

IMBB Rating:


Do I Recommend:

It is an average kind of lip liner and there is nothing amazing about this one, but Maybelline products are so easily available and this product can be given a try.
