Product Review, Swatches and FOTD: Maybelline The Jewels By Colorsensational Lipstick in Amethyst Ablaze 591

Hey Everyone!

Today I will be reviewing the  Maybelline The Jewels By Colorsensational Lipstick in Amethyst Ablaze 591. I have worn this lipstick a couple of times and recently I was wearing this product when I invited a couple of old friends over for an informal get-together at home. I got a fair amount on compliments, so I decided to share the look with you too.

Product Claim:


A must have lipstick for all the lipstick hoarders! Maybelline Color Sensational Jewels Lipstick gives the perfect kissable shade to your lips.These comfortable, long-lasting lipsticks feature intense colour pigments for radiantly beautiful lips.
  • The formula does not settle into fine lines or feather around edges of lips.
  • This richly pigmented formula adds fullness and luster, immediately shaping and softening lips for a plush, cushiony, hydrating effect.
  • Available in 8 different shades.
 Product Price: INR 375/ for 3.9gms 




My take on the Product:
 
Maybelline The Jewels By Colorsensational Lipstick comes in a metal finish (steel) twist- up cylindrical container.  It has has a plastic, semi-transparent magenta cap with holographic rainbow accents.
The product comes in a traditional lipstick bullet form. The formula is very smooth and the lipstick glides over the lips easily and gives near opacity in the first application. In 2-3 swipes it gives full opacity. It has a lovely shimmer shine to it. Those who don't like this kind of shine,you may pat down lightly on your lips with the cushion of your finger and mattify it a bit. 

The formula is quite moisturising and is richly pigmented. The lipstick has a good staying power of about 4-5 hrs. The pigment does fade a bit after that but leaves a nice stain behind. Amethyst Ablaze has tiny shimmer particles. Yet there is no gritty feeling on application or rubbing lips together. The product does not emphasize lip lines, nor does it settle into them. 

I've quite liked the product and I am eyeing a few other shades form this range.
















Pros: 
  1. Attractive packaging.
  2. Great pigments
  3. Moisturising
  4. Lasts 4-5 hrs
  5. does not feather
  6. Does not sit in the liplines.
  7. Leaves a pretty stain
  8. 8 great shades.
  9. Great price point
Cons: Could do without that sticky sweet smell.

Overall Verdict: 4.9/5. 0.1 deducted for the slightly unpleasant smell. Otherwise a really great product!

Will I buy the product again? Sure! in a coupke of other shades too!!
