Maybelline Watershine Liquid Diamonds Lipgloss: Precious Lilac Review

Maybelline Watershine Liquid Diamonds Lipgloss: Precious Lilac

Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well 🙂

I love lipglosses and lip balms. I somehow prefer them to lipsticks (I hope Neha doesn’t read this confession 😉 )

Maybelline was the company from which I bought my first clear lipgloss and our relationship continues. My recent purchase is the Maybelline Watershine LipGloss. I always like pink shades with a hint of brown. Though this doesn’t fall in that category, I somehow liked this one a lot. It is a cross between pink and lilac.

Cost and quantity: Rs 180 for 3ml

My Take on Maybelline Watershine Liquid Diamonds Lipgloss

I know it looks baby pink in the swatch but it comes out almost clear on the lips with a slight hint of pink. It is glossy enough and the shimmer is not over the top. In fact it is barely visible on the lips. Can you see the shimmer in the below pics? When blended the shimmer is barely visible.

And yes, it is a bit sticky. I’m yet to find a lipgloss that is not sticky. Maybe glossiness and stickiness go hand in hand in lip glosses ;P. In fact, I really don’t mind it so much now. Once you remove the gloss, it doesn’t leave your lips a little dry. I’ve found this problem in a few lip glosses.

The wand like applicator does a neat job.
I found the following two ways do justice to the gloss. Pour in your suggestions too 

• It is suitable for evenings and with bold eye make up which in my case is a thick eyeliner and kajal :D.
• If you have an unflattering pink/mauve lipstick, you can use this over the top of the lipstick to make it more wearable.

There are other lovely shades in this range and two of them have already been reviewed here.

What I liked about Maybelline Watershine Liquid Diamonds Lipgloss

• The product did not irritate or harm the lips.
• Mild Fruity fragrance. 
• Neither very sticky nor very drying when applied.
• Stays on for 1 to 2 hours if you do not eat or drink anything. After that you will have to reapply.
• Color – With what I have experienced, this will suit everyone. Even if you feel that it doesn’t suit you, you can always use it with lipsticks.
• Simple and neat packaging with a very useful applicator. Sealed packing.
• Available in all major malls and supermarkets.
• Variety of colors to choose from and affordable.
• It has very subtle shimmering particles. Nothing over the top.

Things that could have been better

• The color totally vanishes after 2 hours. The color being light, you can hardly find any traces of the beautiful color after sometime.
• Leaves the lips a bit dry after removing the gloss.
• Ingredient list is not there.

I would anytime rate this product 4 on 5.
In all, a neat gloss for a neat price. The other cons except for the third one can easily be overlooked 😛

Will I buy it again? Yes but some other color.

If you are a gloss person, you would like the Water Shine Range. Do check it out 🙂

Have a nice day everyone!

  1. Ramya, it’s a lovely shade, and yeah stickiness is so inherent of lip glosses, but then, I guess it’s how most of the glosses work…………..good buy Ramya :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

  2. I also have the watershine in strawberry carats, I only thing I don like abt it is the smell Surprisingly 🙂 But it does look awesome on the lips 🙂

    1. I was pretty ok with the smell of this…. is it a different fragrance for every shade ?:) and yes, I really look how it appears on the lips 🙂

  3. These are good as far as the shine is concerned…but it takes off easily ….no lasting power,,,,works well if topped up on a lipstick… 😉
