After reviewing the newly-launched shades of lipstick from Lakme, today I am going to review the newly-launched shades in the Maybelline lip polish range. The lip polishes by Maybelline have been pretty famous and 4 new berry shades have been added to it recently. I am reviewing the lip polish in the shade “Glam 21.” Read on to know if it’s worth the purchase.
Word of Advice:
Mix formula before applying.
It’s a trio of concentrate: Potent color extracts: Saturated color pigments that provide deep and intense color like a lipstick. Concentrated liquid balm: Moisturizing liquid conditioning balm gets the lips ready for rich color. It gives a cushiony feel and care to the lips. Glossy shine serum: Built-in glossy coat that makes lips look fuller and luscious. Comes with a special leaf-shaped applicator to make application quick and precise.
My Take on Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 21:
I often end up buying cute and luxurious looking products, which actually don’t turn out impressive. But this is an exception, the packaging is chic and so is the product. This lip polish has a see-through glass rectangle shape packaging, where-in the product is stored in the shape of an inverted lipstick bullet, with a silver screw cap. Overall, the message of this lip polish having multiple usage is conveyed by the packaging in the form of a gloss like wand packaging and with the product sitting in a lipstick bullet type look. The packaging department has done a good job here.
The texture is something that you can’t deny is the most amazing. It’s unbelievably smooth and gives a velvety feel. I like lip colors that give my lips a good feel along with good color pay-off. The texture glides over the lips like a dream. It’s so soft that your lips would love to wear it. The lip polish is so moisturizing and hydrating that no lip balm is required over or under it.
Glam 21 is a fine berry shade with red undertones. It’s a dark shade and may suit all skin tones. The lip polish is highly pigmented and gives color in one swipe, although I do a second swipe to even out the color. This lip polish stays on me for around 3-4 hours, which is too good considering its extremely creamy texture. It leaves behind a beautiful stain that lasts all day. The stain is beautiful too in its own way.
The thing I don’t like is its transferability. It’s so creamy and wet, that initially it transfers on anything and everything. Although, one can blot the lips with a tissue post-application, but that would lighten the shade to quite an extent.
Overall, it’s an amazing 3 in 1 lip product to own.
