Maybelline New York Pink Alert Lipstick in POW 2 Review, Swatch and LOTD

Hello folks,

Maybelline Newyork Pink Alert Lipstick in POW 2 Review, swatch

Happy Monday! Being my budday week (I know I should not be as excited as turning 16 when I am actually turning 25!) I decided to start it with a vibrant lipstick review.

Maybelline has launched four pink lipsticks from its color sensational range and has named them Pink Alert! Among the four only two caught my attention ie., POW 2 and POW 4.

Today I will be reviewing POW 2 for you all.

About: 

PINK ALERT BY COLOR SENSATIONAL
Amp up your lips in the hottest pink. In 4 bright pink shades.

· PASSIONATE PINK COLOR only from our vivid color pigments
· CREAMIER FEEL only from our nourishing honey nectar

Packing: Comes in a metallic steel bullet with a transparent plastic pink cap. The bullet and the cap feel sturdy enough to be my travel buddy. It is not unique but come on. If they had made the packing different I would have asked for a free unicorn. *Human wants are unlimited*

Shade: It is a bright borderline neonish pink. I was sceptical in trying this out as I am not fond of hot bubble gum pink Nicki Minaj look. But surprisingly, it looked absolutely gorgeous and made my face look so bright and bubbly. It is a youthful color that is bound to take years off from your face.

Finish: Semi-matte. It looks mildly glossy once applied but sets to a semi-matte finish. Glossiness is lost over period of time

Texture: It is sooooo creamy. The bullet feels fragile. I must find a way to use it up before it melts into a pink puddle in this Chennai climate.

Pigmentation: It has awesome pigmentation. Single swipe is enough for me but for heavily pigmented lips, it might need two coats. That said, it covers any kind of pigmentation. Due to its texture, it may not look so appealing when layered too much.

Staying Power: It stays for about 4 hours on my lips and leaves a pretty pink stain. The glossiness is lost gradually during the wear-time. Due to its texture, it does transfer.

Other Points:  It does not emphasize fine lines but yes we need moisturized lips to rock this texture. When the lipstick starts wearing off, I find it quite drying but nothing that a balm could not fix.  It does not have any overpowering fragrance.

Swatch:

Indian Beauty Maniac’s Rating
4/5

 A gorgeous hot pink is a must have in every lipstick lovers kitty. POW 2 flatters my skin tone (NC 42) very well. Highly recommended.

Maybelline!!!! I am loving your new launches! Pleaseeee launch the matte shade in your color tattoo range here in India soon
**pretty please**
