Picture from Maybelline Website
I got this lipstick during my brother’s wedding as far as I remember. Wedding purposes need at least one bright red lipstick-I am sure! I am a confused customer when it comes to wearing reds-at first I think I cannot carry off-may be it will fast-forward my look to some 20 years ahead-or “what will I do with this lippy for the rest of the year??-if its not everyday wearable”. With all these thoughts bubbling on my mind-I settled for this RED from the Maybelline Colorsensational line. And I am happy!

What the Maybelline Website Says about these Lipsticks:
 Why You’ll Love It:
  • Crisper color from pure pigments. Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar
  • Lipcolor so rich, so stunning… it’s sensational
  • 33 Captivating Shades

Expert Tip

Apply your lipstick by starting in the center of your lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip for a gorgeously perfect finish.


Well-as much as I feared that a “too bright” or “vampish dark” red will either mar my look or stay unused for rest of the year-I got this red as a most wonderful-pinkish red shade. Its often hard to tell if its a pretty deep pink with red tones-or a pretty red with pink undertones!! This red suits occasions-and also-because it is such a cool toned red-I think it will not look OTT even if worn during the day. It can be safely paired with a wide range of outfit colors also-from baby pinks-to royal blues-I have tried this and never got a smirk or squint or any grimace from onlookers..hehe!!. And there is nothing more to say about the moisturizing qualities of these lipsticks. In their budget, they simply RULE! Staying power is medium-with meals-it just fades somewhat. Overall-I will suggest everyone to have this versatile shade-because it’s can safely work for occasions and cater to everyday reach outs equally!

 Pro Side: 

1) Lovely color-its hard to say if this color would ever look OTT!
2) Very Moisturizing
3)  Affordable quantity and quality
4) Easy availability
5) I have never had any of these  lippys that melted and broke!!
Down Side: Nothing
Recommendations: (For the Shade: 80%)

  18. I guess this as a versatile red-irrespective of complexion-this would suit anyone-best if paired with a suitable lipliner-and hey thankss soo much for visiting my blog :)

  19. I got this shade today from URBAN TOUCH...
    I mussay the name is really misleading its not really a red red. But yes, its a lovely color to have... As per my knowledge this shade is a lil tricky and looks different yet pretty on everyone. It doesnt looks the way on me like it does on u.. But the color is really making your features glow. Looks pretty on U! :)

    1. i agree with u!! the shade is a pinkish red-the share of pink is more actually-but I prefer it over stark reds-and as u said-it looks really pretty irrespective of complexion :) I am sure u will love it too :)
