Maybelline WaterShine Extra Volume Lip Gloss in Full Bodied Wine
What the Website Claims:
Why You’ll Love It:
• Plump, Voluptuous lips… at the flick of a wand!
• Menthol and ginger extracts give a tingling feeling for the “plump lips” effect.
• Fast wearing hi – shine lip gloss available 5 dazzling shades.
The shades available are:
1. Full bodied wine.
2. Full lustful brown.
3. Full voluptuous brown.
4. Mauve and grape.
The website says 5 shades, but only 4 of them are listed. I have the shade called full bodied wine.
Not available in the website.
The gloss is just the size of my middle finger, with a gunmetal colored cap and transparent body. It is very small and can be easily carried in a purse. (Look at the mess near the mouth of the bottle).
My Take on Maybelline Water Shine Extra Volume Lip Gloss in Full Bodied Wine:
I got this lip gloss some time back. It was not an intentional purchase, just got it while I was strolling past a cosmetic store. The gloss is not very thick, nor is it very runny. It is of medium consistency and has got silver glitters, which are a bit large and stays on even after wiping it off my lips (the size of the glitters can be seen in the swatch). The applicator is the usual doe-foot one. The smell is kind of weird, it smells of mint. Since the smell goes off within minutes of application, I am okay with the smell, but some may not like it.
One can feel a cooling sensation just like a mint balm being applied, on application of this gloss, which continues for half an hour. The gloss is very sheer. The worst part of this gloss is its staying power. It stayed on me only for one-and-a-half hours. I wore it by 9:30 am and by 11:30 am, there was absolutely nothing on my lips. I had just one small cup of coffee in the middle.
I also felt that this did nothing to add volume to my lips or rather even if it does, it will go unnoticed.
Now let us get to the pros and cons of this gloss.
Pros of Maybelline Water Shine Extra Volume Lip Gloss in Full Bodied Wine:
1. It is not sticky and does not dry the lips.
2. The shimmer is not obvious when the gloss is freshly applied, it merges with the gloss.
3. It is very compact and does not occupy much space.
Cons of Maybelline Water Shine Extra Volume Lip Gloss in Full Bodied Wine:
1. The gloss is not opaque, does not cover pigments on lips.
2. The smell is weird.
3. The staying power is very bad.
4. But once the gloss fades away, the large glitter particles stay back on lips.
Even though the pros and cons are equal in number for this gloss, I feel this gloss is not up to the mark. Even if the staying power of a gloss is pretty bad, it can be considered for its smell, but this one fails over the smell too. It can probably be worn over a matte lipstick, that’s all I can think of! I am using it just for the sake of finishing it soon.
Would I Recommend it?
2.5/5. (For the cute size and the price).
