Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Red Revival : Swatch, Review, Photos
This post has been written by a guest writer: Lapanika . Take it away girl !
This lipstick defies, every rule of why people shouldn’t wear certain colors with certain undertones and blah blah ..So I did something similarly crazy and went on a total whimsical tour, to buy a band aid at the local Walmart and found myself staring at this color. Two reasons mainly, I did not have a “Red lipstick” and “It’s , so nice to buy a red lipstick with a band-aid”. As funny as the second reason sounds , but if you look at this beautiful, saturated color , you will love it .
Price : $7 and Rs 290 approximately
About Maybelline Color Sensational in Red Revival: Although this is a bluish red shade, and suits best on fair complexions, it looks equally great on dusky women. As most bloggers say this shade is a dupe of MAC Russian Red, but I wouldn’t be able to compare because I do not have the latter. This shade is opaque and goes well on pigmented lips. The texture is semi glossy and it glides on effortlessly and leaves a shiny finish. Oh ! How I love the deep saturated color . Coming back, it stays on for 5 hours ( with eating and drinking) but leaves a tint behind. I really wouldn’t use any lip-liner or gloss, because the color itself can come a little too strong. It is a bold and a very vibrant red , no wonder, the model sports this color on the catalog.
Verdict : 4/ 5
Will I buy again : One shade is enough for now
Price: Rs 290/-
Recommendation : Since I bought “Red Revival” , in an attempt to revive some bold color in my life , I was initially little skeptical about trying it. It was like going from plain Jane to “all-of-you-look-at-me-I-have-these-Red-lips” kind of a phase . This color is great for evening parties, clubbing ,or a girls night out , but definitely not a wearable day color.
