Hello Girls 🙂 I know we all love our nude lipsticks but at times you want to go bold. Fall and winter are the seasons to wear a gorgeous deep shade like this one. The Maybelline loaded bold lipsticks were launched sometime back but it is never too late to indulge in a unique and flattering shade of lipstick.
While summers are all about bright pinks, oranges and all sorts of popsicle hues, winters are about rich plums, cherry reds, berry pinks, and burgundy. What I am saying is that you must have at least one such shade in your collection. So let’s get down to the review of this fabulous lipstick, shall we?
Packaging: Talking about the packaging, this lipstick also comes in a shiny silver bullet as most of the Maybelline lipsticks do. The colour of the cap is transparent and blue-hued.
Price: Rs. 450
Shade: The colour seems a deep burgundy in the tube, looks a deep red with plum undertones in the swatch and develops into the perfect deep wine red on the lips.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation of this lipstick is superb right from the first swipe. It gives full-colour payoff. If you want to tone down the colour, I would suggest you get some product on your finger and dab it on the lips. This way it gives the perfect just-bitten natural look.
Texture and Finish: The lipstick has a velvety texture and a beautiful formula. You can easily wear it in cold climates without worrying about your lips drying. On application, it is creamy in texture while it settles down into a matte finish a few minutes later. I really do not like extremely matte lipsticks as they look really flat hence I prefer a creamy matte formula like this one.
Staying Power: It easily stays for 5 to 6 hours on the lips if you do not eat anything oily, any lipstick would break up in that case. However, it does leave a deep stain on your lips so you are not left with bare lips.
My thoughts on the product: What I think is that this would make for the perfect lipstick for the holiday season right now. I actually got it randomly while shopping for some makeup at Lifestyle and later I got one for my mom too. We both love it in our own ways. While she uses it all the time, I like wearing it as a stain with smudged kohl eyes. It is a very budget friendly lipstick too, so you must give it a try and it would also make the perfect gift for your mom.
