My Review:

All the 4 shades in this range are not very unique and I already have these colours in my makeup stash. However i wanted to buy at least one shade to see the texture and longevity and share my review with you all.

I bought the shade Vivid2 Neon Pink due to its neon undertone which is not too on the face but gives the likeable pop of neon.

The texture is creamy and very easy to apply. The Liptick felt nice and light on the lips and color is gorgeous, however i am sorry to say……….the good things end here 🙁

My Main issue is with the formula, the Lipstick settles into the fine lines after few hours (say 4-5 hours)of wear time. It also looks patchy and the sight of patchy lips is a huge turn off for me. 

I had a wear time of 6-7 hours with slight fading around the corner and middle of the lips. This Lipstick leaves a strong hint of pink behind which could only be removed by a makeup remover.

Also, the texture is soft and not a fully matte. So if you are a hardcore dry matte fan like me then skip it. But if you like soft matte Lipsticks, you can give it a try.

Pros:

Perfect Neon color for fair to medium indian skin tone.

The texture is creamy.

Smooth Application.

Good Staying power.

Good Pigmentation.

Cons:

Not an ideal color for dusky beauties.

Not fully matte or you can say dry matte.

Formula settles into fine lines.

My Rating: 3.5/5

Word of Advice: It works better with a lip liner underneath as that provides a smooth base and avoids setting the lipstick into the fine lines/lip lines too much.

My Experience:
Indian Beauty Market has very limited options for Gel Nail paints so when I heard that Maybelline has launched Gel Nail Colours I was very eager to try them. What intrigued me the most was the claim of a 7 day gel nail colour. Price was a downer for me so I picked just one to see how true is their claim of “seven days of flawless, chip free colour for the perfect at home manicure that lasts.”

Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colours comes in a solid rectangular glass bottle, the surprise element of the packaging is the curved and wide angled brush. Sally Hansen nail paints usually have this kind of wide brush and I totally love them as they give a very precise application and covers the nail bed in just two strokes.

Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colour Hot Salsa is a very beautiful Coral shade. The range has total of 20 colour options available online consisting of pastels and bright colours. The consistency of the Nail Paint is thick, however it does not take long to dry. This range do offer Gel like formula but it does not offer the gel like finish we get from Professional Gel Nail Paints. I got opaque finish in just 2 coats, I have deliberately missed transparent base and top cost as I wanted to test the 7 day claim truly.

I wore it for 6 days and it started chipping from the tip of the nails after 5th day, but it was nothing very noticeable. With its long wear time and quick dry formula, I am loving it to the core. Totally Recommend it 🙂

Rating: 4.5/5

Gradation look with Smudger

My Review: I have posted the Swatches of Maybelline Colorsensational in my previous post. I bought the shade RED1 which is a beautiful Maroon color. The texture is soft and creamy. RED1 is very pigmented, just one swipe gives the enough color coverage, in hand swatch below I swiped the crayon 2-3 times and the coverage is amazing. The smudger/blender provided at the end is very effective to smudge the color, I am mentioning the hand swatch below wherein I have smudged the color with smudger and it went very smoothly. I tried the Gradient look by applying the Maybelline Lip Gradation RED1 at the centre of the lips and then smudged it finely/smoothly across Outer line of the lips. The blender/smudger is very Good in Quality and helps in achieving the gradient look effectively. Once the color is set on lips it stays for longer period of time, I had a wear time of 5-6 hours.

Pros:

  1. Innovative Concept-One of a Kind product in Indian Market.
  2.  Nice and Handy Packaging.
  3. Beautiful color selection available.
  4. Smooth texture.
  5. Matte Finish.
  6. Intense Pigmentation.
  7. Blender/Smudger does its jobs perfectly.
  8. Good Staying Power.

Cons:

  1. Formula is bit on dry side but that is an obvious thing in Matte Lip shades.

Rating: 4.5/5. I am enjoying wearing it and loving the Gradient look it gives. Highly Recommend it 🙂

Maybelline Velvet Matte Lip Color- MAT 6 Review and Swatches

Maybelline Colorsensational Velvet Matte Lip Color- MAT 6 

Maybelline Velvet Matte Lip Color- MAT 6-packaging

MRP: Rs. 475

Every high end and drug store brand is launching liquid matte lipsticks in recent times. You can define it a new TREND as these matte liquid lipsticks are fast becoming the favourites of beauties all around the Globe. When you hear the term LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICK, you expect two things the most…first is matte finish obviously and second is long staying power. BUT the MAYBELLINE liquid matte lipsticks fails to fulfil both of these criteria. I admit that L’oreal Color Riche L’extraordinaire Matte lipsticks  are also creamy but at least they set into matte finish after a wear time of an hour. Lets jump to the detailed review.

Maybelline’s claim:

This season is all about Mattes! Give your lips a petal smooth finish with Maybelline New York’s New Color Sensational Velvet Matte Lipsticks.

We bring to you a Liquid to Matte sensation with New Color Sensational Velvet Matte. This innovative “Liquid to Matte” product is a hydrating cream color that glides on smooth and sets with a matte finish. It comes in 7 trendy colors that are not only designed for long wear but are also lightweight. The velvety, buttery cushion-like texture keeps lips in comfort all day. Here’s your go-to matte lipstick, that will always make you look chic and classy.

Here’s why you’ll love it

  • – Its hydrating formula keeps lips non-sticky, non-chalky and hydrated all day long
  • – Available in 7 vibrant, richly-pigmented hues.
  • – It is lightweight, making it perfect for long wear.
  • – Price: Rs. 475.

My Review:

Color: Maybelline ColorSensational Velvet Matte Lip color Mat 6 is a berry toned lip color.

Maybelline Velvet Matte Lip Color- MAT 6-swatch

Packaging: Packaging consists of transparent plastic body and black cap. Below picture will give you a pretty clear idea about how the packaging looks.

Maybelline Velvet Matte Lip Color- MAT 6-lipstick wand

Texture/Formula: Viscosity of the texture is so well balanced that it helps the wand to take out right amount of product. The texture is perfectly thick and creamy. Formula is downer though because of non matte properties, I soooo wish it was satiny matte <3

Application: The smooth, thick and creamy texture makes the application very easy even for beginners.

Longevity: Wear time is a turn off as well but that is obvious considering the soft and creamy texture. I had a wear time of 2-3 hours with no meals or snacks in between.

My Verdict: If you are expecting it to be Satiny Matte lipstick, you will be disappointed BIG Time. Other than that it is a good option as a Lip Gloss.

Rating: 2/5.
