Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Soft Azalea PC41 – review

I love Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks. The first one I ever tried was from the Color sensational lipstick in Splendor Plum 118 introduced a couple of autumns ago (I think). I decided to feature it in my Throwback Thursday post this week. That formula and shade got me hooked to Maybelline lipsticks.

When I came to South Korea, I decided to try the brands that were not available in India. Maybelline, L’oreal, Dior, Chanel, Bobbi Brown, Bourjois etc are easily available in India so I decided to go majorly after the Korean cosmetic brands like Nature Republic, Missha, Shara Shara, Holika Holika, the Face Shop, Aritaum and Skinfood (there are many more but I only remember these right now.

So when I went to a newly opened Olive Young store in my neighbourhood, I kept on ignoring Maybelline cosmetics staring at me amongst Clio professional, Majolica Majorca, Elle girl, NYX etc. I resisted many times for the next few weeks but then I saw something that always makes my heart change – “SALE!”

My first thought was to ignore it but then I saw that the sale was 40% off even on all of the Color sensational lipsticks!  I had seen the new packaging of Color Sensational lipsticks on YT in the US so I knew the reason behind the sale. I decided to try a few shades and came home with one of the brightest pinks I would ever wear – Soft Azalea.

I did like three more shades but I had not brought my wallet just a 10,000 Korean Won bill in my pocket. The lipsticks are priced at 10000 but on sale each one was 6000 Won (~5$ ~ 300INR) I picked up a pair of lashes and went back.

 The lipstick suits me even though it is a cool toned pink and my skin is warm-toned. I would describe this as a deep pink with blue undertones. It is my brighest lipstick ever and I love it.

It is definitely not a color for the weak hearted. It is a statement shade and is going to be my summer lipstick especially on my lazy when I would just be rocking a winged liner!

I am a huge fan of Maybelline lipsticks. They glide on easily, stay put beautifully for 3 hours and are so affordable. I think these lipsticks are pricier in Korea after conversion than in the US or India.

Rating: 5/5

Recommend: Yes

Repurchase: Yes
