Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gloss

I got these first when they launched a few months back. But then I lost it. And I was too lazy to buy it again. But a few weeks back, I was shopping and couldn’t resist when I saw the Maybelline counter. This is one of my favourite glosses. And I know I’m late, but I thought I’d review it anyway since I love them so much.

I have two of them: Sugared Honey and Hooked on Pink.

Price: Rs. 250/- or $5.50

The Good:
1. All of the colors in the range are wearable and quite amazing
2. Lasting power is excellent. They last about 3-4 hours which, for me is really long. Most glosses last barely 2 hours on me.
3. Super creamy and pigmented. It feels like I’m applying liquid lipstick. And I love the lustrous shine it gives.
4. I like the smell. Its nice citrusy smell which I quite like. Even the taste is kinda nice and fruity.
6. I like that its not too sticky.
7. Price is good for the quantity.

The Bad:
1. I don’t like the packaging. Its pretty standard. And no labels or even the brand name on the tube. There’s a tiny little sticker at the bottom with the shade name, which is quite unreadable.
2. Limited number of shades. I wish they had more variety in shades. I think there are only 9-10 of them.
3. Dries out my lips after an hour or so. But nothing a lip balm can’t fix.

Sorry about the bad pics. Couldn’t find my camera, so had to use my phone.


Final Verdict: I’d definitely like to try out the other shades

I'm not a gloss person. Don't know why, but glosses just don't tempt me the way lipsticks do. Not that I'm complaining. It just means more money to spend on lipsticks :P

These glosses have been getting good reviews on many blogs. The lasting power seems pretty impressive. Plus, it's not too sticky. That's my main complaint against glosses.

@poohkie..I'm a new convert to lip products. And i'm not a big fan of glosses either. I have maybe 4-5 of them.

I prefer lipsticks anyday.. Last longer and i prefer that since i hate reapplying. I mostly buy glosses to layer over lipsticks..
