Maybelline Lip Liner in Velvet Beige: Review & Swatches

By Guest Reviewer CSP Ballal

Details about the product:

Keep your lipcolor looking beautiful with coordinating lip liners that won’t smudge and smear.

Slant tip and slim-line barrel provide precise application and control for a perfectly defined look.

Creamy formula with Vitamin E glides on silky smooth.

Prevents feathering and bleeding.

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.

Rating: B+

Price: Rs.210

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.

Nice review :) I have this but it darkens my lipsticks and lip glosses a bit too much for my liking.

Hi thr! The colour luks nice esp coz I like subtle shimmers.. though I feel.. a lip swatch would have given a more better idea :)

Never thought of using a lip liner under my eyes, but to come to think of it…it is pretty cool. Shall try it next time!

great color…would have loved a EOTD as well!!

Beautiful everyday shade. I am definitely checking out this range as most lip liners are a bit hard to apply on the lips and this sounds perfectly smooth and creamy! Lovely pics :)


Niesha December 11, 2012 at 2:20 pm

beautiful color, i wanted to try that in Hollywood Red.:)


Shang J. December 11, 2012 at 5:47 pm

A very pretty colour. I would love to use this alone with only a gloss. x


Nitya December 11, 2012 at 11:24 pm

Nice Review, also thanks for your review on Deborah atomic red shade #19 earlier, based on that I bought it and I love it, its my everyday shade now :)

That’s a fun colour! It reminds me of MAC Spice lip liner, but only a tad bit lighter and with shimmers :)
