Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gradation Ogange1 Review, Swatch, FOTD

Hey all!

These lip gradations are the latest launches from our favorite brand Maybelline! They are inspired by Korean lip trends to give just bitten kind of natural stain to the lips. The shade I have for review is ORANGE1.

What I Say…

Packaging:

It comes in a dual ended stick kind of packaging! One end contains the Lip crayon which comes out when the base is twisted. The other end has a sponge for blurring the lip color to achieve gradation effect. I love the fact that the stick body is color coded which is exactly the same as the lip color!

Texture:

The texture is amazing…. Velvety matte which goes as smooth as butter on the lips! It does not settle into lines. But people with extremely dry or chapped lips needs prior exfoliation.

Shade:

They have 8 shades ranging from reds, pinks, corals and browns. ORANGE1 is a red toned orange which is perfect for this spring summer! It is not a neon orange. Because of the prominent red tone, it will work for a varied range of skin colors! So for those who shy away from wearing a full blown orange, this is the shade to start with.

Pigmentation:

Very intense! One swipe gives the true color and two swipes are sufficient to cover up lip pigmentation.

Staying Power:

It can definitely be labelled as long stay lip color! I get almost full day wear time out of it. Also it transfers very little. The color intensity obviously reduces over time, but it leaves stain behind while fading.

Quick Checkpoints:

Thumbs Up:
  • One of a kind product in the Indian market which has taken inspiration form Korean gradient lips trend
  • Gorgeous shade
  • Awesome pigmentation
  • Good staying power
  • Nice matte texture which is forgiving on the lips and feel comfortable to wear

Thumbs Down:
  • Pricey!! INR 500 for 1.25 gm of product? Why Maybelline?
  • I personally don’t find the sponge useful. If you use it for smudging, it will get dirty. And there is no provision for washing it
  • I am not a fan of gradient lips trend. It surely looks cute on Korean girls who have flawless skin and very different features than us Indians. On me, it looks like I have eaten up my lip color from the lip borders with my meal. I prefer two toned or ombre lips.

Final Word:

Over all, these lip gradations surely deserve to be tried. Despite mentioning so many cons above, I am a fan of the formula, finish and the shade. So look for deals and discounts online and grab your favorite shade from the range.

Rating: 4/5 (only because of the price and useless sponge)
