My take on Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner:
Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner is a short little lip liner pencil from the Colorsensational range. It is creamy, helps in preventing bleeding of soft creamy lipsticks, makes the lips more attractive, and gives a very neat highlighting definition to the lips. The color comes out very well, true to pencil color with light hand swipes. It requires no forcing while swiping. Gliding too is very satisfactory, no clumping and no tugging and it provides free flowing color
This lip liner has some slight silver shimmer to it so i find it strange that i like it so much because all the shimmery products I have owned so far lie mostly unused. But, this lip liner has an unusual attraction in spite of the shimmer present. Lips get an attractive shine only at the edges, which doesnt even look like shimmer but just a soft shine.The light nude -pink shade of velvet beige is also really flattering- it will work well as a neutral lip liner on deeper skintones, and a pink lipliner on lighter ones.
My only problem is that there is probably too little product, and given that this is not retractable, there is more wastage as well.
Ok, now is a small confession from me about using a lip liner. I use this on my eyes too. Couple of swipe on my lower lash line, and not too miss the darkest Kajal on the water line. I love the way my eyes turn out with velvet beige lip liner.
Recommendation: If you are a pencil person, then for a creamy, easy gliding, good color and shimmery lip pencil you have to go for Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner. Velvet Beige is an absolutely beautiful pinkish nude with undersated shimmer that will look gorgeous on all lip colors- neutral on darker skintones, and a more vivid pink on lighter ones.
