How have you all been doing? My life’s been a crazy ride all this while, especially the last two months and I have been having a hard time juggling between the rest-of-the-world and my kid who btw is growing up so fast and needs so much more attention than ever before. Especially since we hardly get to spend any time together. Weekdays are crazy and weekends are lazy…err..I don’t know if I can explain that well.. Anyhow, here’s my quick review on the Maybelline LIPgradation in PINK2 that is one of the recent launches by Maybelline India and what I exactly think of this much hyped product.
Go Bold Or Graded And Sexy On Your Lips With The New Color Sensational Lip Gradation
It’s time to experiment with your lip makeup. For the sexy, bold and adventurous woman, Maybelline New York brings international trends with the newest Lip Gradation. Available in 8 bright, matte shades, this double-sided lip product will inspire you to experiment with your looks and bring out your unique style and personality. The color stick at one end will give a gorgeous pop of color while the cushion blender tool at the other end will give a sexy, graded look. For a complete trend-on look, apply color on the centre of your upper lip and use the sponge smudger to extend the color to the outer edges till the contours of your lips or use it as a matte lip color or a lip liner.
How much does it cost?
Rs 500 for a stick!
What kind of color is that?
PINK2 is a very warm bright Pink, the kind of pink that isn’t too hard to carry, and flatters olive Indian skin.
What does it feel like ?
A stick that is smooth and creamy. Ease of application is the highlight of this dainty and good looking lip product. It deposits rich pigmented color in one stroke that covers all kinds of lip pigmentation. The pointed shape of the stick makes it easy to reach the corners of the mouth too. It doesn’t smudge, bleed or feather so yays to that!
What is the finish like?
The Maybelline LIPgradation in PINK2 looks creamy when freshly applied but sets to a beautiful and vivid creamy-matte finish.
So, how long does it last?
All day, all night and so much more, until you take it off. This product has far surpassed my expectations in terms of longevity. I apply it at the start of the day, have all my meals, and still at the end of 10-11 hours the color is intact. After I even blot off the color, there is a strong tint that is left behind and needs to be taken off with a makeup remover.
Does it dry the lips?
Not mine, but I would suggest some prepping if you have extra dry lips.
Do you like it?
I doubt if someone wouldn’t. It is a very versatile lip product, which can be used as a lip liner, an all over lipcolor or to create the fashionable gradient lip that s quite popular in the beauty-enthusiasts’ circuits.
Overall, I think the Maybelline LIPgradation in PINK2 is one of my best buys from Maybelline ever and one of the best new launches to have hit the drugstore makeup shelves in recent times. I have my eyes on a couple of other shades from the range too , including the much loved Mauve1 , and hope to pick it up soon.
