Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipstick Desert Bloom – Swatches and LOTD:
How is the week going for you guys? Mine is totally boring and uneventful. I am going to review a lipstick that I bought some donkey’s ears back and found recently in my stash. It is the Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipstick in the shade Desert Bloom.
Price: At that time it was Rs. 220. Not sure if it has increased now.
As you can see it came in this lovely peachy gold case. I carefully checked the case and was relieved to know that it has not yet expired. 🙂
Shade: Desert Bloom is the name of this beauty and it’s a soft muted pink that would look great on all skin tones below NC 40. It’s a very subtle warm soft pink that adds a hint of pinky sheen to your lips without being too warm or too cool-toned.
My Experience with the product:
Well, when I found this in my lipstick stash the other day, I went into a total flashback mode and remembered when Desert Bloom and I used to be sooo in love with each other. I had used this almost everyday at the time and used to love this shade. Swatch below.
Somehow, the shade reminded me of the very famous Mac’s Cosmo and I decided to do a quick comparative swatch (wow, I coined that phrase just now!). See below:
Here’s how it looks on my lips:
I think Cosmo is slightly darker and heavier in texture than this one, but on my lips they appear very similar.
The texture of this one is uber moisturizing and it glides on the lips like a dream. I don’t need to use any lip balm or gloss over it. It gives a lovely moisturized look to my lips. Being so moisturizing it fades pretty easily – after 2-3 hours.
Overall Verdict: I have totally fallen in love with this color…yet again and I am going to finish it off in the next 3 months before it expires. It’s a beautiful shade – I am not sure if this range is still available, if it is, please run and get it!
