New Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks India Review, Swatches

Hi guys,

I have two shades from the new Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks and you already saw me using one in the previous Valentine’s Day Tutorial post.

I have been testing these out and here are my thoughts..

To start with, the sheer grey purple case and steel body packaging is quite nice. I always liked the Color Sensational range packaging, they change the outer case color for different ranges.

Although I am not happy with the increase in prices, the Color Sensational range started with Rs.299/- in India and then it increased to 399, 425, 500 and now 575. I feel 575 is a little too steep for Maybelline as we always associate it with affordable prices.

The formula is creamy matte as per the name. It is very comfortable and glides on the lips easily, and gives an opaque finish in two swipes. They are quite moisturizing and feel light weight on the lips.

These are quite pigmented and stay for around 5-6 hours. Since I have both deeper, brighter shades, they definitely stay longer and leave behind a strong tint. I had to finally take them off after 6 hours and scrub my lips well to remove the tint. The lighter nude shades won’t last that long.

These are slightly glossy, and not a flat matte or powder matte finish. Also they do transfer on everything, but don’t go away completely and fade off quite evenly.

I like the fact that they have a good variety of shades, but I still see more of reds. Only two nudes and one violet, would have loved more shades in this range, at least about 20-25.

Faint for Fuchsia is a barbie fuchsia pink. Slightly cool toned but not neonish.

Craving Coral is a bright coral orange.

These swatches are two swipes, I love the pigmentation.

I do recommend the new Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks, I only wish it was priced below Rs.500

Valentine's Day Matte Pink/Plum Makeup Tutorial

I am going to try both the nude shades Nude Nuance and Touch of Spice and also the Vibrant Violet.

They have recently launched the Intimatte Nudes collection in the US and I absolutely love few shades like Raw Chocolate, Beige Babe, etc. I hope they launch that range in India soon!

This Creamy Matte range is available online on Nykaa.
