Pastels are the shades for this spring and summer and Maybelline has launched their pastel range which consists of beautiful shades and i am reviewing such one shade called Blushing Bud today.

Color: Color of Maybelline Blushing Bud is a very muted pink shade with very subtle glossy finish. If you have pigmented lips i advise you to stay away from this shade. It will suit medium to fair skinned beauties. I advise to pair it with heavy eye makeup like with black eye shadow, black smokey eyes or heavy kohl rimmed eyes.

Texture: Texture of the Maybelline Blushing Bud is creamy, it does not dry the lips and is very hydrating.

Application: Application is easy and it glides very smoothly on the lips, however the finish may be uneven if you have dry patches on lips. It highlights dryness and looks very bad on dry lips. I advise to prep the lips before application, exfoliation and moisturizing is must.

Pigmentation: The lipstick is very moderately pigmented. It does not provide full coverage and if you have pigmented lips then this lipstick is a big NO for you.

Longevity: I am not impressed with the staying power, i had the wear time of only 3-4 hours. It transfers on cups and glasses and does not survive meals.

  2. Glossy Finish.
