They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. I say “pink lipsticks aren’t less either!” (Crazy, I know 😛 ) Don’t we all love pink lipsticks? Be it baby pink, rose pink, fuchsia, neon pink, we adore all kinds of pink! And when a brand like Maybelline New York launches new lipsticks and names them “Pink Alert”, isn’t that totally awesome? So the lipstick I’m reviewing today is Maybelline Pink Alert lipstick by Color Sensational in the shade POW4.

My experience with is Maybelline Pink Alert lipstick by Color Sensational in the shade POW4:
Just when I thought I was so done with buying pink lipsticks and that I own almost all shades of pink, here come the Pink Alert lipsticks. There are such gorgeous shades of pink in this Pink Alert collection that I bought not one, but three lipsticks. The one I’m reviewing today is the shade POW4 which is a coral pink color.
Let’s start off with the packaging, like I described in the previous two posts on Maybelline Pink Alert lipsticks, the plastic wrap on the outside has Pink Alert written on it in a very gorgeous font. The other three sides have the MRP, product details etc mentioned on them. The sticker at the bottom shows the shade number and is also shade coordinated. The inside packaging is very much same as the other lipsticks by Color Sensational; only the pink cap is what’s different here.
Now coming to the lipstick, like I said in my previous post on Pink Alert lipstick, the texture is very, very creamy and moisturizing. It glides very effortlessly onto lips, without settling into fine lines. The pigmentation is great. I just swiped it once, and the color it imparted on my lips was a gorgeous pink. Since it’s a bright pink and the pigmentation is so great, I don’t think more than two swipes would be required anyway! Talking about the staying power I wore it for around 6-7 hours yesterday, so I know that it’s lasting power is pretty good. I didn’t touch up the lipstick even once. At the end of the day, the lipstick stain still remained which looked okayish (I had no problem with it). The lipstick has a glossy effect and because it’s so moisturizing, I can give your lip balm and gloss a break for the day when I’m thinking of applying this lipstick. The price still remains the best part! So affordable! 😀 This is probably the best pink lipstick in my stash.
Final Verdict: Awesome price, superb pigmentation, long lasting. Go for it, everybody!

• Cute, girly packaging
Cons of is Maybelline Pink Alert lipstick by Color Sensational in the shade POW4:

Will I repurchase/ Do I recommend is Maybelline Pink Alert lipstick by Color Sensational in the shade POW4?
