Maybelline India always offers some great new launches, and this time, they have launched some amazing lipsticks called The Loaded Bolds Lipsticks. We all know that bold lipsticks have already won over the market and people are loving to wear bold shades on the lips. This new range has 10 gorgeous bold shades. Generally, I prefer either dark shades or full nude shades that actually defines my personality, but this time, after I saw all the shades, I decided to go with a totally different color which I have never tried before. So, today, I am going to review the shade called ‘Fearless Purple’. Let’s get into the details!
Beyond bold, it’s sensational. Achieve high-impact color in one saturated stroke with Maybelline’s The Loaded Bolds lipstick.
What it is – Color Sensational® Loaded Bolds Lipstick. Maybelline’s creamy lip color is available in a collection of full-spectrum shades from jet black to bright white.
Benefits – Hypercolor pigments and an opaque, creamy clay base deliver one-stroke intensity. Sumptuous honey nectar leaves a creamy finish. Maybelline’s Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds is available in a range of pigment-loaded shades from deep plums and electric blues to vibrant reds and natural nudes. Dermatologist tested. Allergy tested.
My Experience with Maybelline New York Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lipstick Fearless Purple:
Packaging: The Loaded Bolds Range comes in the signature Maybelline’s lipstick shape and this range has a nice glossy blue cap with a silver base. The packaging of this range is similar to Maybelline packaging and there’s a color-coded sticker at the bottom of the tube. Now, this time few shades have different colored caps and few have blue. Obviously, the color is different from their old range, but still, it becomes quite difficult to find a particular shade among the same range. Still, the packaging is travel-friendly and affordable too.
Shade: As the name describes, the range has nice bold shades like reds, pinks and a white too, but this particular purple looked most interesting to me. Fearless Purple is a gorgeous, dark neutral toned true purple shade and it goes will all skin tones. This is quite a bold dark shade which is not an everyday wear color and not everyone’s cup of tea, but it looks stunning on me. This is actually the most wearable purple and quite a unique color, which you will not find easily among drugstore brands. Also, the shade is super pigmented which requires only one swipe to get the perfect color pay off.
Texture and Quality: Lipstick has a very nice smooth creamy texture that glides easily on the lips. It evenly occupies my lips and feels very light. I really like this formula and it has a nice soft velvety matte finish that looks stunning on the lips. It doesn’t feel patchy or dry on the lips. Hence, it never highlights dry patches either. The formula provides good hydration to the lips which never make the lips dry. It is a nice one for dry lips too. I absolutely love its non-drying matte texture which is good to all.
But, due to its creamy formula, initially, it does transfer slightly. So, it is not a 100% transfer-proof lipstick, but a lot of color still remains on the lips and color doesn’t look even faded. Once it sets to a perfect matte finish, it doesn’t transfer much. Also, the lipstick doesn’t settle into the fine lines or creases at all. Hence, it is definitely a good quality lipstick. This lipstick is quite similar to the Maybelline Powder Matte range but the power matte has a lighter formula than this.
Staying Power: Like a good matte lipstick it nicely stays for over 7 hours and it can survive a meal but not 100%. It looks slightly faded after a heavy meal, but I do not mind it since reapplication does not make it patchy. Only, it is a little difficult to remove the lipstick completely. Actually, it leaves a deep pink stain on the lips which takes the time to remove properly.
Overall: I love its formula and quality, and I am so happy to have such a beautiful purple shade. It somehow looks gorgeous on me. The color is quite similar to the MAC Heroine but Maybelline offers it at a very affordable price.
