Maybelline Pink Alert by Color Sensational – POW3

Hi everybody!

Just yesterday I was strolling through the Maybelline counter and I swear I had no intention of spending another penny on lipsticks; not this week at least, when I spotted this awesomeness. The SA told me it’s a newly launched lipstick so I thought I’d just swatch it but will buy it next week. But the moment I swatched it on my hand, I fell in love with every bit of it. It’s Maybelline Pink Alert lipstick by Color Sensational in the shade POW3. It’s a neon pink shade and I’m super excited about reviewing it 😀

My experience with is Maybelline Pink Alert lipstick by Color Sensational in the shade POW3:



Before I begin with sharing my experience, I’d like to confess I’m a sucker for pink lipsticks and I love collecting them. I’d been eyeing Mac candy yum yum for a couple of months but always ended up picking some other shade whenever I visited MAC. Then yesterday, when I was at the Maybelline counter and saw this neon pink lipstick, it almost appeared as a dupe for Candy Yum Yum, which Is probably the only reason I picked this up.  Now let’s begin with my experience with this lipstick. This lipstick is similar to the’ Vivids’ lipsticks by Color Sensational which aren’t available in India yet. But since this one is now available here, I couldn’t miss giving it a try. When I bought it, I had very less expectations from it considering it was my first time trying a neon lippie. But it totally amazed me; the color actually suits my skin tone! Hehe!


The packaging is similar to the usual Color Sensational lipsticks. The pink cap is the only different thing. The sticker at the bottom of the lipstick denotes the shade of the lipstick. The cap closes real tight, so the packaging can be called secure. All in all, the packaging is cute yet sophisticated.

Coming to the lipstick, the texture is the best part! It’s so creamy and moisturizing, I absolutely love it. It feels really light on lips; besides, it does not settle into fine lines, so that’s another plus there! This lipstick is really pigmented, only one swipe is enough to impart a gorgeous neon pink color on lips. Since it’s a neon pink, I prefer using it only as a lip stain (to avoid looking scary, LOL) The lipstick is super affordable and is also long lasting. I applied it this very morning for a maybe 4-5 hours. Since I didn’t have any meals during that time, the lipstick didn’t diminish at all. The lipstick is not completely matte, nor is very glossy either. It has a bit of shine in it which is good if you don’t want to team it with a gloss.

Final Verdict: One of the best neon pink lipsticks available out there, at this great a price!
