My take on the product:
These lipsticks have been around for a few months now, I hadn’t tried them earlier, so when Maybelline contacted me about expressing my thoughts on these lipsticks, I was pretty excited. Being completely honest, if they wouldn’t have sent it, I wouldn’t have picked these up for myself. I am a MAC lipstick addict and I believe nothing comes anywhere close to their lipsticks.
As mentioned, this range has around 32 shades, with various color families, red, pink, brown and mauve. I received two shades: Fuchsia Flare & Orange Lion. Given a choice, I would’ve gone for the same colors.
Orange Lion: This is a gorgeous shade of orange, very on trend at the moment. But don’t be scared of the brightness, it is very sheer, compared to Fuchsia Flare. I like it for the same fact, that it is sheer; anything darker and I would’ve been scared to bits on trying it on. Very moisturizing, feels great on the lips; almost like a tinted lip balm. A great day time lipstick, would look great with lots of shimmery bronzer! This is how it looks on me.
Fuchsia Flare: This again is my-kinda-shade, gloriously pink. I mean, which girl doesn’t love PINK! In contrast to its counterpart, Orange Lion, this one is extremely pigmented. One swipe and you get beautiful opaque color. One downside though, it stains your lips! Some people wouldn’t mind it, but I personally don’t like that part. I am not a fan of lipstains and do not like my lipstick to stain either. Overall it is again very similar to the other one, hydrating and good color payoff. Here’s how this one looks on me
- Pocket friendly
- Chic packaging
- Very moisturizing on lips; no need of separate lipbalm
- Opaque color (Fuchsia Flare)
- Wide color range
- Easily available
- Stains the lips
- Not a fan of the smell
