Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 16 Review

Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 16

Hello IMBB beauties…..

The Maybelline lip polishes do not need much introduction and needless to say I was so intrigued by seeing such an array of shades that I had to give in to the temptation. I swatched the shades endlessly and honestly I wanted to get so many of them. Then I reminded myself that there is always tomorrow and I can come back for more. After much pondering I settled for Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 16.


Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 16 comes in a plastic tube packaging like most lip glosses available in the market. Being transparent the color can be easily identified. The cap is shiny silver metallic coating on a plastic wand and the wand is pretty short compared to other lip glosses. The wand comes with a unique shaped sponge tip. It picks up the right amount of the product for your lips.



Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 16 is very smooth to apply and non sticky. I have always steered clear of lip glosses due to their sticky nature but when I came to know about this property I wanted to pick one up. The shade that I have selected has golden shimmers but they are not tacky and do not travel all over the face which is again a pro for me.

The pigmentation is buildable. One can go sheer and opaque with the same shade. It all depends on the person how vivid the person wants the pigmentation to be.

Staying Power:

Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 16 stays for about 2hours without any food or drinks. But even after a meal the color does not vanish completely. It leaves a lovely stain on the lips and moisturizing feel is still there. Those with pigmented lips will find it good as it will not leave the lips completely bare after a meal.


My experience with Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 16

Maybelline has hardly failed to impress makeup maniacs like me. They always have something or the other coming up and mesmerizing us with its uniqueness. This lip polish is believed to be a 3 in 1 formula and I must say they have created a whole new concept. It works well a lipstick, lip gloss and a lip balm. I was amazed to find the moisturizing effect to stay even after a full meal. It gives an incredible shine which is again not over the top. The color can be built upon as per ones wish. I admit I am not satisfied with one shade and I am going to hoard soon. Love you Maybelline for bringing in this awesome concept to Indian beauty market.
