Maybelline New York Color Sensational Shine Gloss Stellar Berry 360 - Review, Pics, Swatches

Guest Post by Tejinder 

Hi lovely ladies

I am not a big fan of lip gloss but numerous positive reviews have tempted me to check out at least one of these Maybelline New York Color Sensational Shine glosses. I went to Boots and bought the shade Stellar Berry, a very pretty purple with pink undertone. It is a lovely creamy gloss that gives luscious shine and sensational color to the lips. 



Why You Will Love It:

1. Sophisticated color and shine from pure pigments

2. Luxurious feel from nourishing honey nectar

3. With Color Sensational Gloss achieve high-definition colour with sensational shine

4. Maybelline’s most luscious feel in a gloss, giving lustrous shine and rich colour coverage

5. 12 stunning shades


For Best Results:

Use the wand to apply lip gloss starting with the centre of your upper lip. Work from the centre to outer edges of your lips, following the contour of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.

My Thoughts: 

Stellar Berry is a very pretty and gorgeous purple/pink with just the right amount of shimmer that is more evident in the tube than on the lips. It is not sticky at all but stays only 2 hours on my lips leaving an even purplish kind of stain after fading. It does not dry out the lips, goes opaque in 1 swipe and gives a sheer finish. The quality of these products is amazing and choice of colours really impressive. The rich pigmented purplish gloss instantly brightens up my face & mood.


Packaging:  The glosses come in a square tube packaging with a silver cap which may look simple but who cares about packaging if product is awesome. It comes with a slanted sponge tip applicator that helps in precise application of the product. The shade name and number is mentioned at the bottom of the tube on the sticker. The smell of the gloss is lovely and fruity which I love but it may bother some ladies who are not too fond of fruity smells. It fades away after sometime though.





Texture: It is thick and creamy but not slippery. It is a very pretty and wearable colour for all skin tones. Gives decent shine, feels very light and makes my lips look really healthy and plump. In short, the formula is very comfortable and moisturizing.

Pigmentation: They are superbly pigmented as 1 swipe gives good coverage. It is non-sticky and glides smoothly on application.




Staying Power: It does not stay for more than 2 hours but I don’t mind reapplying. After all how much can we expect from a gloss?

Price/availability: £6.19 from Boots/Amazon UK/Superdrug 

Pros: 

· Very pretty shade

· Gives nice shine to the lips

· Feels great and glides on the lips really smoothly

· Colour is very flattering

· Gives good coverage

· The amount of shimmer is absolutely perfect. Not too glittery

· Good pigmentation

· Nice applicator

Cons:

· Packaging is very simple

· Doesn't last too long

Final Verdict: I really adore these cute babies which will suit all skin tones. These glosses may not be very long wearing but they are creamy in texture, have good pigmentation, gives a nice shine to the lips, light weight, contain perfect amount of shimmer and available in 12 shades. If you are a lip gloss fan then you can definitely add this one to your vanity.

My Note - That's a really pretty color Tej and it looks lovely on you! Wish this shade is available here soon so I can grab it..Great review as always :)
