My take on the product
Maybelline Colorsensational lip glosses are one of my absolute favorite lip glosses. These come in a slim long tube packaging with a transparent body and metallic silver cap. The packaging looks quite attractive and is provided with a regular slanted sponge tip applicator. The only drawback is that the product has no brand label on it and just a tiny name label at one end which can be a little hard on the eyes to read. The applicator picks up enough product for a medium coverage wash of color on the lips, one needs to dip back into the tube for more product to get intense opaque color.
The texture of this lipgloss is non-sticky and creamy. It is quite pigmented and gives medium intensity coverage to the lips. The intensity of the color can be built up by applying more product. The texture feels really comfortable and moisturizing on the lips. While the texture and feel of this lip gloss is wonderful, the staying power is average as would be expected of a non-sticky lip gloss. It stays around 2.5-3 hours on my lips with lighter meals and gets completely wiped out with a heavier meal. Despite the average wear time, I really like these lip glosses , they are quite awesome for the price!
The gloss has a mild sweet fragrance that vanishes some time after application.
The shade Cranberry Cocktail :
Cranberry Cocktail is a beautiful muted cool toned red lip gloss. One could even call it neutral but I feel its a little cool toned as it leaves a soft pinkish red stain behind as it fades. Worn sheerly, it gives a soft red flush to the lips which is very wearable, I’ve been wearing this gloss almost everyday that way. By building up the coverage, it transforms to a glamorous glossy red which is bright but still not in-your-face bright. It contains ultra fine shimmer that is barely visible, it just adds to the shine.
I feel sheer/muted red lipsticks as well as lipglosses look beautiful on most skin tones and give that luscious flushed look. If you’ve been afraid to try reds, this shade can be a good start. The balance of cool and warm tones in this shade makes it suitable for all skin tones. I personally love reds especially sheer ones for everyday and this shade tops my list of gorgeous everyday reds.
