Today I am going to review what has become my go to lip product these days. I even pair it up with my favourite Lakme 9 to 5 tea-break to make it glossier.
It is none other than the Maybelline Color Sensational Lip polish in Glam 7.
What Maybelline says:
LIP POLISH - Liquid color balm by Color Sensational
A TRIO of CONCENTRATES:
1. Potent Color Extracts: Pure saturated color pigments that provide deep intense color like a lipstick.
2. Concentrated Liquid Balm: Moisturizing Liquid Conditioning Balm gets the lips ready for Intensely Rich color. Gives a soft Cushiony feel & care to the lips.
3. Glossy Shine Serum: Built-in glossy top-coat, that makes lips look fuller & more luscious.
Specially designed Leaf-shaped applicator which makes application quick & precise.
The color Glam 7 is a gorgeous subdued coral shade. It looks peachy under various lightings.
Packing: It comes in this cute and interesting packing. The inner barrel is shaped in the form of a lipstick whereas the entire packing is similar to a short lip gloss symbolizing the concept of the fusion between lipstick and a lipgloss i.e., lip polish. Easy to spot in my clutter.
Applicator: This applicator needs an obvious special mention because of its unique shape. It has a bent leaf like shape with a stiff skeleton which aids in seamless application even at the corners. The bottle has a restriction to prevent product wastage and that combined with the applicator’s wide middle makes sure that no product extra product gets struck and there will no need to scrape the excess off.
Texture and pigmentation: The texture is somewhere between lip cream and lip gloss. It does not feel very heavy on the lips and imparts a gorgeous glossy pigmentation. Product may require layering on heavily pigmented lips. The product is not too reflective to the point that it makes huge lips look so prominent. In short, it makes my lips look very pretty.
On initial application, it seems to glide on the lips and look uneven but in a moment the color fuses together sets to a perfect formulation. It does not feel overly sticky but yes for a matte lover like me, it does make its presence felt.
It does not emphasize dryness or settle into fine lines. Moisturizing is recommended as no lip product will look great on dry and parched lips.
It stays on my lips for about 3 hours before fading away. When it fades, it leaves a mild tint which is not prominent with this color but (I feel) will look great in darker shades.
Due to its texture it obviously transfers. No bothering fragrance.
This is how it looks on my lips after immediate application. See how it fills the thin lines?
I am not sure if it would look great on darker skin tones but if you are fair-medium, get ready to rock this shade.
