Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Glamourous Red Review

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all are having a good day.  Firstly, I would like to thank all of you for reading my reviews and your sweet comments. It motivated me to write more and more.  Now, coming to the review, today, I would be reviewing my most favourite everyday lipstick which is Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Glamorous Red.

Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Glamourous Red Review

Product Description:

Crisper color from pure pigments. Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar. Lip color so rich, so stunning, it’s sensational, 45 Captivating Shades. Apply your lipstick by starting in the center of your lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip for a gorgeously perfect finish.


INR 350 for 4 gm.


It comes in a rectangular tube with a tinted cap. As in all the shades belonging to a particular color family have a cap in that shade. The cap closes perfectly. The shade name and number are written on a label at the bottom of the lipstick. The label is also of the same shade as the lipstick itself.  Okay, now that I have this lipstick since almost 6 months, I have noticed that the paint has started peeling off from the packaging. I don’t know whether I got a bad piece or so, but now that the paint has started peeling off, it doesn’t look so pleasant.

Maybelline describes this lipstick as “Glamorous Red,” but trust me, the shade is nowhere close to red.  Rather it’s a very pretty pinky brown. You can easily wear it everyday for running errands without getting any unwanted stares. The shade looks very natural on me, so I love it for that.

I had read a method online which helps you select a lighter shade which is:  The “Under your lip” method for choosing a lighter lip color.  A technique to help you choose a lighter lip color is to match your lipstick to the area under your bottom lip. Stick your bottom lip out and the pale pink flesh inside – that’s the color you should go for when you buy a lighter color.

This lipstick is that perfect pink for me, so I am glad I found mine.  The lipstick has a crème finish so it isn’t all that drying, but they don’t glide easily, so I always use a lip balm underneath this, so that my lipstick glides smoothly. The lipstick has a very pleasant smell, it’s so yummy 😛  The pigmentation is average.

If you have pigmented lips, then the lipstick will give you uneven coverage, the pigmented portion will look different from the normal portion of your lips.

It stays for 2-3 hours with slight snacks in between and they don’t stain at all, so it’s a major plus point for me.

Do I Recommend/Would I Repurchase Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Glamourous Red?

I would recommend this range of lipsticks because they have a very nice shade selection and I have read that the brighter shades are far more pigmented than the lighter ones.  Also, this particular shade suits me to the T and you can see that I have finished more than half of the tube. It is by far my most used lipstick 🙂  I love the shade and I would surely repurchase this, but I would also like to know of any dupes of this color because I want something that is more pigmented. Any drugstore suggestions ladies???

IMBB Rating:

4/5 (minus marks for average pigmentation and because it’s not very moisturizing).

  1. awesome shade and nice swatches. you are right, the color is nowhere close to red, but a great daily wear shade. Somehow in this range maybelline seems to get the name of their shades all wrong. But the product is great at a decent cost

  2. I got this lipstick after seeing the review here. but as arja mentioned above the colour is a bit different from the pics in the review. Still it is a pretty shade.. thanks for the review..
