Instant ombre lips anyone? Well that’s the fun concept Maybelline has come out with.
Sounds good. Let’s do away with the hassle of using multiple lip products
to achieve that awesome ombre lip look or the flushed , bitten lip look (popularly known
as the korean lips). Instead lets just use one lip product and you have instant ombre lips .
PRICE : Rs 475
QUANTITY : 3.9 gms
SHADES AVAILABLE IN INDIA : OR01 Sunset Sorbet
RD01 Rasberry Smoothie
The outer packaging comes wrapped in a plastic sheet .
It’s the usual maybelline lipstick packaging. But this one has an ombre or gradient
look. And of course it’s sturdy enough to carry in your bag & travel with it.
These are the list of ingredients which are printed on the outer thin plastic sheet.
Of course you will tend to throw this away & only retain the actual lipstick.
The product is made in china.
I picked up the shade RD01 Rasberry Smoothie
The lipstick tube/ bullet is tri colored or has three different shades – a nude shade ,
a medium pigmented shade & a deeper shade. FLUSHED BITTEN LIP LOOK
FLUSHED BITTEN LIP LOOK
- Firstly the concept is so freaking good.
- The formula is that of a lip balm & not of a lipstick so it’s extremely hydrating on the lips.
- If you are a person with non pigmented lips then this product would work great for you.
- Its light weight.
- It’s not pigmented enough.
- The formula is that of a tinted lip balm.
- The color does not show on pigmented lips.
- Since the texture is that of a lip balm the ombre effect will smudge off into a single shade on the lips.
- It has a sweet bubble gummy smell , which some people might not like (personally not in my lipstick)
- It’s a bit expensive for using it as a tinted lip balm.
WILL I PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT AGAIN?
No. This is an awesome product to be used as a lip balm. And if you are a person with non pigmented
lips then you can use it for that ombre effect on your lips. This is a bit pricey to be used as a lip balm.
There are other maybelline lip balms I would rather choose which perform great & priced less too.
Hope this review was helpful.
