Product Review: Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Polish Glam 14

Today I will review a beautiful lip product from the Maybelline stables. It is called Colour Sensational Lip Polish. It is a 3-in-1 product which includes a lip balm, lip gloss and a lipstick rolled into one.
Company claims:
Liquid color balm by Color Sensational A TRIO of CONCENTRATES:
1.Potent Color Extracts: Pure saturated color pigments that provide deep intense color like a lipstick. 2.Concentrated Liquid Balm: Moisturizing Liquid Conditioning Balm gets the lips ready for Intensely Rich color. Gives a soft Cushiony feel & care to the lips.
3.Glossy Shine Serum: Built-in glossy top-coat, that makes lips look fuller & more luscious. Specially designed Leaf-shaped applicator which makes application quick & precise.
It comes in a transparent plastic cuboid container with a silver colour cap. The actual inner tube which contains the product is shaped like a lipstick, which looks very cute. It comes with a leaf shaped applicator.
















Price: INR 450/-
Quantity: 5 ml
My Experience with the Product:
I had heard about this product from a friend and thought I would try it out. So I went to the Maybelline counter and asked the sales assistant for the product. The product has 16 shades, names starting with Glam 1 through Glam 16. It ranged from the nude to very high colour saturation with corals, plums, reds, pinks and browns. I picked up two shades Glam 6 and Glam 14. Glam 6 is a deep plum (I will put up pics in a couple of days). Here I will be reviewing Glam 14.
It is a lovely peachy nude with a light hint of pink. The formula is slightly sticky but not irritatingly so. It sits quite lightly on the lips. The sheer colour pay-off is good, but I think it will look different on different people due to the natural lip-colour of different people. The overall effect is beautiful. The colour and shine lasted for about 5 hrs through my evening coffee and dinner. But after 6 hrs first the gloss and then the colour began to fade. However, my lips did not feel dry or chapped. This product needs to be used along with a lip liner or else it may bleed along the tiny folds along the lips.

Pros:
  1. Great colour pay-off.
  2. Good lip coverage.
  3. Good formula, not too sticky or heavy on the lips
  4. Long-lasting.
  5. Good price
Cons:
  1. Compared to L'oreal Shine Caresse Lip Gloss, it has a slightly heavier and stickier formula. But nothing I can't handle.
  2. transfers on to cups when drinking.


Product Rating: 4.75/5
Will I buy this product again? Yes! Though in a different shade. Highly recommended for those who like high gloss lip colours!
