Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick in Dusty Rose (811) and a Fungal Alert!!!!
A Review, a warning and a request!
This was my first ever lipstick purchase along with Lakme 129. When I swatched it in the shop, it was a nice mauvy-pink shade, which was what I was looking for, but when I tried it on at home, it turned out way too dark on my lips. On my mom, whose lips are way more pigmented than mine, it turns a lighter shade. I just don’t understand this shade, okay, anyway that’s just me!
The colour is mauvy-pink. It is a nice wearable shade. I think it would look very natural on darker skin tones, but still suit lighter and medium skin tones too. 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 the lipstick 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 re-apply to keep the color looking bright.
The lipstick is cased in a 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 of lipstick 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 Moisture Extreme in Dusky Rose:
– Excellent pigmentation.
-Smooth application and light texture.
– It’s very moisturizing and doesn’t dry out lips at all.
– Lipstick 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 Moisture Extreme Lipstick in Dusty Rose:
– Staying power on its own is ridiculously poor, so you might have to try it with a lip liner to make it last a decent amount of time.
– The color fades very quickly to a light tint.
I could have mentioned this in the review itself, but I wanted to make a strong point with pictures. Okay, so I have reviewed this shade and I also reviewed another shade, Bronzy Orange a while ago. They were fine around that time and a while after. Recently, I took them out of my makeup box to admire them (Yes, I am weird that way) and to my horror, they were spoiled. Yes, there was mould on them. Yuck! I was horrified and opened up all my lipsticks, including My Mahogany from the colorsensational range, but only the moisture extreme ones were spoiled. Even Lakme lipsticks and a 10-year-old Revlon belonging to my mom were unaffected.
Let me emphasize these facts:
-I placed them in a plastic box away from any humidity (so, it wasn’t my carelessness!).
-The two shades were bought in different shops on different days (so, it wasn’t a bad piece!).
-These were placed in the same compartment and same box as My Mahogany, Lakme 129 and Revlon Mocha Rose. Yet, only these got spoiled.
-I googled and found people on other blogs mentioning the same problem of “fungal infections” with these lippies.
Here are some pictures:
Top: The white fuzz all over the lipstick is fungus.
Bottom: Black fungus all over, especially on the top.
So, I recommend you think twice before buying these lipsticks, especially if you live in humid areas and if you already own them, please be careful and check before putting them on your lips. (I almost put the bronzy orange one on my lips because the molding isn’t as obvious as on the dusky rose one.) Definitely not me, it’s MAYBELLINE!
I so wanted the coral pink one, but now, I don’t know if I can take the risk I feel cheated, BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Could you guys recommend a longer-lasting dupe for Lakme enrich 129, the oh-so popular peachy brown shade? Any texture, matte/creamy will do, but something that will last for more than ½ hour, even a lip gloss is okay. Please help!
