Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick Plum Perfect

It is really plummy and it is perfect. Maybelline colorsensational lipsticks have made quite an impression among bloggers and makeup lovers. After having read countless reviews, I decided that I want my perfect colorsensational lipstick as well. Well, I knew that at least I would find the perfect shade for myself because this range of lipsticks has around 45 different color choices including brown, pink, mauve and red shades. Having decided this I went straight to the Maybelline counter at Westside. Of course as always I was swamped by SA from other counters, but I had decided that I was going to get a colorsensational lipstick ONLY (Well, I did end up getting some other stuff as well J, BUT at least I got what I wanted). Here is my review of the first (certainly not the last) Maybelline colorsensational lipstick

Packaging: The packaging of this lipstick is surprisingly good. I am sucker for beautiful, classy packaging and anything in cheap plastic things just is not my thing. The colosensational lipsticks have different shades of outer casing based on the lipstick color. Since I have a plum lipstick so the casing is a nice plum color. Believe me this is a boon when you are hunting from around fifty lipsticks in your makeup bag. This is how the lipstick casing looks (Cool..Isn’t it)

Color: The color is a gorgeous plum color. I am more of a browns and nudes girl but this shade just seemed so flattering that I just could not resist it (Of course I am eyeing the brown shades too..They are just sooo tempting). I am dusky and the color makes my face look bright. Here are the swatches of this gorgeous shade. (Sorry for the blurry pics..Still learning)

Texture: You will love the texture of this lipstick. Smooth, creamy and surprisingly long lasting..what more could a girl want. It glides on like a dream and stays for more than four hours provided you are not gorging on French fries and burgers in between. Even after four hours it does not go away completely and fades nicely leaving behind a slight hint of color on your lips.

Price: The lipsticks are nicely priced at Rs. 299. Considering the color payoff and the texture I think it’s a great deal.

What Do I Not Like

  • Hmm.I guess the smell..its kind off weird. I have a sensitive nose and hate any strong smelling product.
  • Maybelline counters (at least in Pune) just do not have enough shades of this range. The counter I visited had just ten to twelve shades of the range.
This is a great lipstick for warm skin tone and dusky girls. Will I get another one of these? Yes for sure..and the other shades too. In fact I went ahead and ordered Crazy for Coffee which is an amazing pink brown shade. Review and pics later :)
