Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Chestnut Cream
By Guest Writer Sangeeta
When cosmetic products remind me of food, i find the experience of using the product rather yummy. In fact the first thing that caught me about Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Chestnut Cream was the name and i started drifting thinking about creamy cupcakes.
Maybelline Colorsensational Chestnut cream lipstick is a nude orange based brown with very fine shimmer particles. The colour will work well for both day and night. Just top the lipstick with a shimmery gloss and you are all set for a fun night out. Chestnut cream is a shade that will suit most Indian skin tones well. This shade looks very different under different lightings though, It sometimes looks more nudish and at other times a light orange with a tint of brown.
Overall a nice everyday colour from the color sensational series. The pigmentation is good and can built-up for full coverage, and the lasting power is decent. This shade is not too drying but it is not moisturizing at the same and I feel it’s best to use a lip balm first before applying the lipstick. The fragrance smells a bit coconut like and I don’t like it much, but the smell doesn’t last long.

- Pigmentation is good
What I don’t really like about Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Chestnut Cream

- Has a weird smell but not too overpowering
Overall Verdict : B+
Would I repurchase this?I would pick up more colours from the Color Sensational series.
Overall Recommendation: I own 4 Maybelline color sensational lipsticks and I totally love them. Chestnut cream is a nude orange based brown with slight shimmer particles making it appear a bit frosty. This is a shade that will suit most Indian skin tones well.
