Though I have over a 100 lipsticks, I sadly have just one Maybeline lipstick.The reason can partly be my craze for colorbar or my lack of knowledge of the fab colors that Maybelline offers. A while ago when I went to health and glow to pick up the Maybeline lasting drama eye liner, I could not resist buying this lipstick. I thought it would be a good start for my Maybelline collection, which I m going to top up with colorsensational “magnetic coral , my mahogany, hooked on pink” and few others. I am still to lay my hands on Maybelline colorsensational Lipsticks.:)
About the crème caramel 758: The lipstick costed me about 225INR. The packaging is orangy beige one curved at the top. It feels slim to hold between your finger(yes the shape and packaging do make a lipstick attractive for me and so does the bullet inside)
The bullet is regular lipstick shaped. The color is very creamy and has a glazy finish to it with a little bit of water shine.
The lipstick is fixed well in the tube though recently im having trouble with the tube due to the summer as the bullet keeps shaking and thereby causing dent on one side of the lipstick inside. This one is smooth and need to be stored away in the fridge with other lipstick family. (I am sure this one need company from other maybelline ones soon)
What I like about the shade: I quite like the beige shade as it’s a very neutral shade. It’s super creamy and glides on the lips.
The creamy nature renders a lot of color on the lips in just one swipe. This is an amazing color for day wear or for days when u don’t know which lipstick to wear with what outfit. It’s a safe color for most skin tones in my opinion. It’s super as nude shade. Its super when paired up with kohl or smoky eyes. If you don’t have nude lippy yet, this shade is worth considering.
What I don’t like about this lipstick:
I don’t quite like the glaze finish this lipstick has. I would have preferred gloss or cream finish. The glaze finish makes it shinier and makes my skin look dull. It’s creamy so it bleeds a lot. I am still unable to find matching lip liner for this one. It sure does need one. It bleeds out of my nude lip liner and make the lip look messy. It odes transfer on my teeth as well sadly. It’s not like one of those light wear lipsticks where you don’t feel you are wearing a lippy. When I wear this lipstick, I am constantly conscious of it bleeding or transferring on the teeth. It feels heavy on my lips due to that shiny glaze finish. I prefer creamy matte lipsticks and hence this may be just my perception. A lot of you may be comfortable wearing moisture extreme. It smells like alpenliebe or caramel. I don’t like my lipsticks to smell much. It makes me conscious of it. I prefer lipsticks not to have any taste or flavour to them I particularly hate floral or rose smelling ones like the lakme ones. I can’t see any mention of the quantity as well.
Comparison to oriflame minis: the crème caramel shade reminded me of two of my oriflame lipsticks: almond brown and iced café. Almond brown is a lighter version of mabelline and little lighter on the lips, it’s not as pigmented as maybelline as well.
The iced café is a little darker version of the moisture extreme and is less pigmented and with a lighter finish. The three colors more or less belong to the same beige lipstick family. The oriflame one are nice and small so I can manage to finish them soon. They do feel sturdy inside the tube and I haven’t had a problem with them breaking or melting yet. These two shades, iced café and almond brown very overlapping colors just that the iced café has more brown in it. Both do have a glazed finish 🙁 but much lesser than maybelline one. Unfortunately I believe Oriflame has discontinued these mini lipsticks now unless on an offer or clearance sale. I am happy I stocked my favourite shades up like a true makeup junkie.:D
Will I recommend maybelline moisture extreme crème caramel: for the color, yes, for the moisture, yes, for the price, yes, for a nude lippy, yes, for the packaging, yes, for pairing up with kajal or smoky eyes, yes.
I would not recommend to for the heavy feel it gives to my lips, glaze finish is really subjective but I personally don’t like it. It kind of feels sticky on the lips. It also smells like caramel (or alpenliebe candy ).It also doesn’t feel sturdy inside the tube. It shakes when opened fully and applied. It’s better off in the fridge than your purse in this heat.
