I guess there would be any girl who won’t own at least a lipstick or two. Few days back I was cleaning my closet and notice all my lipstick were more than 3yrs old and its time I need to trash them and then I was left with none. There was absolute vacuum within, God I don’t have a single lipstick. Next was Monday and entire day I was feeling so low. So while returning home I stopped to get my Lipstick.
After marriage I was so busy with this new life, location change, new colleagues and a complete different language that I hardly had any time for myself. Then came pregnancy and I almost lost the “Me” thing in myself and all simple grooming articles were out of my mind. I was really clueless about which lipstick to buy and the colors.
I just walked in the mall and the first counter was Maybelline, and I stopped there. After going through a lot of swatches I zeroed down on Maybelline Coloresensational-Plum Shade. It’s a deep plum shade. For me it’s like deep maroon shade. It’s a complete festive color, highly pigmented packed in a mettalic cherry red case. Just one swipe is enough. It would be better to use a lip liner to outline and define your lips to get that “Fuller” look else you can use a brush instead.
As compared to the lipsticks from the same range its moisturization capacity is less. It stays on the lips for around 2 hrs and then starts to fade evenly leaving a reddish stain behind. As it fades out it leaves the lips dry and settling down is fine lines which are so unattractive. So I had to constantly apply my Lotus chapstick. But what I noticed was the reddish stain remained intact till I used my baby oil to remove it. It survived almost 6-7 hrs with meals in between.
This is not at all an office wear , but I was so happy gifting myself a lipstick after three years that I applied it to office the very next day. After reaching office it was quite embarrassing for me. This shade is for festive season or any functions, mainly a night wear.

I won’t buy this; there are better options in terms of color and quality available in the same range. So would try other colors now.
