Maybelline Colorsensational lipsticks are one of the most popular lipsticks and today I’m reviewing a lovely soft coral red shade from this range – Glamorous Red!
Price : Rs 299 for 4.2 g
What Maybelline says about the lipstick :
CRISPER COLOR from pure pigments
CREAMIER FEEL from nourishing honey nectar
My take on the product
Maybelline Colorsensational lipsticks come in an attractive packaging with a colored translucent cap (depending on the color family the shade belongs to) and a silver body inside. I love the packaging of these lipsticks! These are not just lovely to look at but quite sturdy as well.
The texture of the lipstick is smooth and creamy. It has wonderful pigmentation and glides smoothly on the lips to give a slightly glossy finish with opaque coverage. Single swipe gives good color which can be made more intense but adding another layer. The formula is moisturizing enough and the color does not settle into the fine lines of the lips. With this particular shade, I get about 3.5-4 hours of wear and it leaves a soft pink tint behind which stays for some more time. Formula-wise, this is a great lipstick! It is comfortable on the lips and gives a good enough wear time.
The shade Glamorous Red :
If I had to design a shade named Glamorous Red, it would be a very full on glossy red! This shade in real is a reddened pink.. Even though the name’s slightly misleading, the shade itself is GORGEOUS! The color is glamorous in its own way while being subtle and not overly bright. In swatches, it looks more of coral-red but on my lips, its a soft reddened pink. The shade adds life to the face and its the kind of shade you can wear without foundation/eye makeup too. Depending on your skin tone, it would appear pinker or redder.
If you’re not comfortable with powerful reds, this is a great shade to start with! Highly recommended! I think it would suit a lot of skin tones.
This range from Maybelline has a great range of reds as well as nudes! Pleasure me Red, Red Peptite, Red Revival are amazing reds, to name a few! I own Hooked on Pink (which I was Hooked on to last spring!) and My Mahogany from this range -both of which are beautiful shades! While I have loved the creamy finish shades from range, I’m not a big fan of the frosty shades as I find their texture slightly grittier and not as smooth.
The shade reminded me of MAC Brick-o-la lipsticl. On swatching these next to each other, they look similar in terms of undertones, the Maybelline one is deeper and is redder.
The GOOD about Maybelline Colorsensational lipstick Glamorous Red :
- Attractive, sturdy packaging
- Smooth, creamy texture
- Good pigmentation
- Gives opaque coverage
- Glossy, healthy finish to the lips
- Moisturizing (though not overly so)
- Decent staying power
- Color Does not settle in the fine lines
- Available in a huge shade range
- Reasonably priced
- Shade would suit many skin tones
- Not very moisturizing, dry lipped women might need something extra after some time of wear
How it looks on me :
One of the best drugstore brand lipsticks available, it offers smooth texture, decent moisturization and staying power, packaged in a chic and attractive packaging – all for Rs 299 and comes in 45 shades. A must range to explore if you like nudes and reds. The shade Glamorous Red is a soft coral red shade, brightening but not too bold. It might look a tad pinker on some skin tones. It livens up the face and would suit many skin tones. If you’ve wary of bolder reds, this is a lovely shade to start with!
