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 sale was going to last a few more days after this visit of mine so of course I would go back!
Product: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Soft Azalea PC41
Claim: Crisper color from pure pigments. Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar and lipcolor so rich, so stunning sensational
Price: 10000 KRW
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.
Do you like Maybelline products? What are your thoughts on the Color Sensational lipsticks or this shade in particular?
