Maybelline New York Lip Polish by Color Sensational - Review

by Tripti Bisht

Maybelline Says:  Fall under the spell of the elixir effect. Hyper-saturated color, ultra cushiony feel. The new hypnotic lip sensation. Available in 16 hyper-saturated shades.

Price: Rs 450/- for 5ml

Variant I’m reviewing:  Pop 6

The Maybelline Lip Polish gives a smooth, soft feel to the lips and the shade "Pop 6" gives a rich red color as red as a ripening fruit.
No wonder I quickly got attracted to this product as I glanced it for the first time. This new hypnotic lip sensation is a impressive combination of "color of a lipstick, care of a balm and liquid shine of gloss."

The texture of the Maybelline lip polish is medium thick and applies evenly on the lips. The staying power of this lip polish is average, up to 2 hours and after that it fades away slowly, leaving a nice reddish stain. I feel if your lips are dry or cracked, this alone wouldn't be enough to provide enough hydration. So the days my lips are feeling a bit dry, I use a lip balm before applying this.

The specially designed leaf-shaped applicator accompanying the lip color, which has been made in order to facilitate easy and quick glide did not work that well for me. In fact, on first look I assumed it was a defected piece, but later on discovered that it has been specially designed this way.

The product comes attractively packed in a transparent container and looks like a hybrid between a Lipstick and a Lip gloss. This is easily available in all cosmetic stores.

What I don't like:

Lasting power is just average.
I do think this is a bit sticky.

What I like:

Gives bold color with rich shine just in a single stroke, which can be built-up more if needed.
I like it's mild scent and slight sweet taste.

It is a Lipstick + Lip Gloss + Balm. I mean come on, that has to be a reason enough to buy this.

Rate: 4.5/5

Recommendation: I do like this lip lacquer a lot! Maybelline has been one of my favorite cosmetic brands & I love its quality and reasonable price range.  The Color Sensational Lip Polish has some pretty exciting shades that I would love to add to my stack. You can check out all the shades available in India here.
