Review of Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Make Me Pink
Guest Post By: Priyanka
Have you seen Nicki Minaj’s signature lip colour? The bright mauve lavender that is quirky yet flattering for her skin tone. While it is a very pretty shade it certainly isn’t suitable for a whole lot of skin tones.
The lipstick I am now going to review is something similar and was a gift from my evidently colour blind brother. :p
Price of Maybelline Colorsensational LipsticksThey cost INR 350/-
What Maybelline Colorsensational Make Me Pink claims :
- Crisper color from pure pigments.
- Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar
- Lipcolor so rich, so stunning sensational
My views on Maybelline Colorsensational Make Me Pink:
I love me some Maybelline but darn! This colour is horrendously garish on me! I am sure there are plenty of ebony skinned/ dusky women who’ll rock this shade like there is no tomorrow but I look like a sallow and yellow teeth-ed crone in this lipstick. This lipstick makes me look pale and drawn out and certainly isn’t universally flattering.
I can’t fault it’s formula as it is very pigmented and has an attractive glossy finish but it has the tendency to look patchy especially if you suffer from dry patches on your lips like I do. But at this price point you can work around the flaws of this emollient formula. All you need to do is properly exfoliate you lips so that the lipstick glides smoothly. After which it is sure to last a good 2-3 hours after which it begins to fade, starting from the centre of your lips. The longevity can be improved by using the apply-blot-reapply method which can make it last a good 4-5 hours but if you wish to reapply after this duration, you need to scrub off all remnants of the lipstick and start over. Something that might be just a tad too cumbersome to bother with, if you know what I mean. :p
The Maybelline ColorSensational Range has a wide array of options out of which every skin tone is sure to find a colour that they can totally rock. These lipsticks pack a punch as far as pigmentation is concerned and offer a bright glossy finish that lasts for atleast 2 hours after which the lipstick begins to lose its sheen and colour. But nevertheless, picking up one colour from this range is certainly a good call! My favourite is Fatal Red, what is yours?
