It’s time to experiment with your lip makeup. For the bold and adventurous look, Maybelline New York brings international trends with the newest release, Lip Gradation. Available in 8 bright, matte shades, this double-sided lip product will inspire you to experiment with your looks. In this post, I am reviewing 2 shades from the collection – RED2 & CORAL1
MAYBELLINE COLORSENSATIONAL LIP GRADATION – RED2, CORAL1 – INR500 each
Packaging & Price
Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Gradation are a color stick at one end that gives you a gorgeous pop of color while the cushion blender tool at the other end give a sexy, graded look. This tool is used to smudge the product on your lips to create a softer look. The overall packaging is sturdy and easy to carry around.
For a complete trend-on look, apply color on the centre of your upper lip and use the sponge smudger to extend the color to the outer edges till the contours of your lips or use it as a matte lip color or a lip liner.
The moment I saw the packaging, I was impressed. I like the twist up- retractable kind of packaging. Easy and convenient. Minimal wastage of product. Also, The INR 500 for each sounds awesome! It’s right available at Nykaa for a discounted price of INR 475 each.
Here’s a picture of how much product you get. I have completely twisted up the product and this is how it looks!
Formula, Pigmentation & Longevity
Maybelline Lip Gradation lipsticks are really pigmented. With just one swipe. It covers your lips. It is very creamy and glides really easily on the lips. The finish is matte. It doesn’t settle on the fine lines. Applies creamy and feels very soft and comfortable on the lips. Even if you layer the product, It doesn’t feel heavy at all. Out of the 2 shades I recevied – RED2 & CORAL1 ; RED2 is my favorite. It is just the perfect blue based red that suits most skintones. The lasting power is about 3-4 hours and it survive light meals. It has no fragrance which I love about it. I am not a fan of CORAL1. Maybe it’s not very flattering on my skintone (NC40). Though, RED2 didn’t settle onto the fine lines of my lips, I find CORAL1 a little more creamy and I feel it transfers easily. I also found that CORAL1 didn’t last more than 3 hours on my lips.
Moving onto swatches & LOTDS
Overall, I love RED2 shade. It’s really pretty and highly pigmented. CORAL1 is not my kind of shade. If you like similar shades- You can give it a try. In general,Maybelline ColorSensational Lip Gradation is available in 6 shades. They have a matte finish. Easily glide onto lips. Has no fragrance. After about 4 hours- These start to fade leaving a beautiful tint on your lips. These double up as a lip liner too. These comes off pretty quickly using your cleansing oil. Worth giving a try for the affordable price tag!
