Maybelline COLORsensational Lip Color - On the Mauve ~ Review, Swatch and 'Lip Clicks'

What Maybelline says about the Colorsensational Lip Color?
Crisper color from pure pigments. Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar. Lipcolor so rich, so stunning, it’s sensational.

    Price: 299 INR. for 4.2g.

    Look & Feel:

    First Impressions: 
    • When the SA first swatched the color on my wrist I instantly fell for this mid-toned mauve with a smooth creamy finish. Without any second thoughts I purchased it.
    • When I first applied on my lips which were quite dry at that moment, it glided on smoothly and softened the dryness. Very happily I looked into the mirror and was quite surprised to see how it looked on my lips. If you are wondering that it's the shade that surprised me then NO!!!,  it's not the shade but it's the micro shimmer which I failed to notice in the swatch. This color in-spite of having a creamy texture has accentuated the lines on my dry lips. All credit to the presence of the micro shimmer.
    • The next morning I have applied it on my scrubbed smooth lips and loved how it looked on my lips and the color!!! how perfect it is for work.

    Long Wear Test:

    Readers who have read my previous reviews must have already guessed that I tested it by wearing for work and yes you are right :) I did test it so. Well coming to the Lip Color, what impressed me the most is the moisturising. Usually most of the long stay lip colors provide moisturization for 2-3 hours post which even though the color stays lips become dry. But this is defintely an exception to all such lipsticks. The moisturization stays as long as the color which is about 5 hours.

    Nitty-Gritty of Colorsensational - On the Mauve

    • Texture: Creamy, smooth and gliding.
    • Package: I love flaunting the lipstick for it's package is so stylish.
    • Fragrance: Sweet Vanilla fragrance. Yummy :).
    • Shade: Mid-toned Mauve with micro shimmer.
    • Moisturzing? Yes for 4 hours without the need of a lip balm.
    • Lasting Power? Lasts for 5 hours surviving light snacks.
    • Color Pay Off? Full color in single swipe and buildable intensity.
    • Finish? Semi glossy.

    Tip: For this particular shade apply lip balm as soon as the lips feel dry because the shimmer accentuates the dryness and the lines.

    Final Note: The texture and the staying power of this lipstick are amazing but people with dry lips choose a  dark color with less shimmer to get the full benefits. However people with normal lips go grab all your favourite colors :)
