Today's spotlight is on Prachi, a beautiful newbie blogger who writes about her love of all things related to skincare and makeup at http://luminousha.wordpress.
com. Prachi lives in Bangalore and has always been very interested in trying out new beauty products and it is this interest that led to the creation of her blog, Luminousha .She is also a big fan of Ankita Chaturvedi of corallista.com and says that she will always be a big inpiration to her.(I love corallista too Prachi :)
Prachi talks about one of her all time favorite lipsticks, Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lipcolor in Coral Pink.
Packaging - Coral Pink comes in a neon orange colored bullet. The packaging is quite sturdy and travel friendly.
Color and Pigmentation - It is a beautiful coral color with a bit of pink in it. The formula of this lipstick is creamy and it glides on smoothly on the lips. Like all the Moisture Extreme lipsticks, this is very moisturising as well so there is no need for a lip balm before applying. Since I have quite dry lips, I tend to apply lip balms either before or after applying lipstick but with this I did not feel the need to. I'm pretty impressed by the pigmentation. One swipe easily covers pigmented lips and 2-3 swipes build up a beautiful coral pink color on lips. The color will suit fair - medium tones very well.
Staying Power - It lasts for about 2-2.5 hrs with some mild snacking in between. With heavy meals it completely disappears though from the lips. I like that it doesn’t settle into fine lines after fading away from lips. There are other brands which are of the same price range but they tend to settle in fine lines on lips and are not even as creamy as this but Maybelline scores great points here! I have heard that this range of lipsticks are susceptible to fungus but I've had Coral pink for over a year now and thankfully it still is pretty neat! I really wish that it had longer staying power as frequent touch ups are always not possible for everyone!
Pros of the Product
- Its reasonably priced
- The formula is quite creamy
- It is very moisturising. One wouldn’t need any lip balm while using it
- The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly.
- Great pigmentation – One swipe easily covers up pigmented lips and 2-3 swipes gives a beautiful color
- It doesn’t settle into fine lines.
- It has got SPF15.
Cons of the Product :
- Less staying power i.e. about 2-2.5 hours
Final Verdict : Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lipcolor in Coral Pink shade is a beautiful “Coral pink” color which is reasonably priced and the formula is quite creamy and moisturising. I would highly recommend this to everyone!
