My Experience with Maybelline Maple Kiss ColorSensational The Buffs Lip Color:

Maybelline’s “In the Buff” collection features a wide array of neutral shades designed to work as the perfect n*de lipstick for every skin tone. The shade “Maple Kiss” caught my eye, hence I got this particular shade even though this cannot be considered a n*de lipstick on me.

Packaging:  The lipsticks from this collection come with a dusty beige cap. The name of the shade can be read on a sticker underneath the lipstick.

Texture and Pigmentation:  This lipstick applied smoothly on the lips without any tug or skip. I was highly impressed with the dreamy creamy application and how it deposited 100% color in one swipe. The slightly curved tip hugged my lips and provided a smooth application.

The texture of this lipstick is very forgiving. It makes the lips appear smoother and does not accentuate fine lines or dry patches.

Shade:  I am in love with this shade. “Maple Kiss” is a gorgeous coppery-rusty brown with hints of orange undertone. It is a very warm shade and looks breathtakingly beautiful on our desi skin tone. I believe it is a very universally flattering shade and light-medium to dusky skin can carry off this shade with ease. This is a shade you could wear everyday.

Finish:  This lipstick has a gorgeous satin finish. It gives the lips just the right amount of sheen without being too glossy.

Staying Power:  Since it is a very creamy lipstick, it is prone to transferring. The staying power is just like traditional lipstick around 4-5 hours and will need reapplication after a full meal, but the whole time it is on my lips, it feels highly comfortable.

Scent:  This lipstick has a very noticeable sweet chocolate-y scent which I enjoy. It does not have any detectable taste.

Overall, I absolutely love this lipstick. This shade is very similar except for the difference in finish and can be called a close dupe of Givenchy Le Rouge 104 which I adore and have reviewed earlier on IMBB. I highly recommend this lipstick.
