Maybelline launched a new range of lipsticks earlier this month called the Maybelline Color Sensational Pink Alert. There are 4 shades in this range – POW1, POW2, POW3, POW4. The shades are a mix of pink and coral but do not go deeper in color. All the 4 shades are light-to-medium pink/coral color. There are 2 more lipstick ranges released in Korea alongwith Pink Alert this month – Bold Matte and Red Porcelain.
These are quite expensive in Korea (15000 KRW ~14$) considering they are so affordable in India(350 INR ~7$) and of course in the US. Seoul is the second most expensive city in the world so it is sort of expected. Anyway!
About the shades
POW1 – A Cool toned light pink which in my opinion will not suit medium to dark skintones.
Not for me!
POW2 – A coral shade less intense and cool (undertones) than POW4.
This would be my second choice from this line. I really liked this shade but it is slightly lighter than my preference.
POW3 – A statement pink shade which is not unique in my opinion but beautiful nonetheless!
I already like my Soft Azalea from Maybelline color sensational so I skipped buying this one too!
POW4 – A Coral lipstick to die for!
My favorite of the 4, I absolutely love this shade and it is the best coral lipstick available in the market. This would be a perfect spring/summer lipstick!
I saw Maybelline Pink Alert in Korea a couple of days ago at Watsons otherwise they are not available anywhere else yet (not even Olive Young). Watsons store was running a discount on these so I got POW4 which was my favorite shade of the 4 hands down!
I will be reviewing the POW4 soon so stay tuned for that!
Do you like Pink Lipsticks? Would be buying any of the Maybelline Pink Alert lipsticks?
