Packaging: The lipsticks come in the usual colour coded lipstick tubes similar to other maybelline lipsticks.
Texture: The lipsticks are very creamy and glide on smoothly. The lipstick leave behind a subtle moisturizing shine and is not actually matte.
Shade: 9 new shades have recently been launched by maybelline and here is summary on each of them:
Warm Latte: This is a lightest brown with copper undertones and a bit of shimmer. Looks golden-nude on the lips with subtle shine. Perfect to be used on occasions or on top of your regular lipstick. This shade might look a bit frosty on darker skin tones.
Romantic Rose: This is a very light pink shade which looks kind of nude with pink undertones. Might look frosty on darker skin tones.
Pretty in Plum: This is a perfect light purple shade and will suit all skin tones.
Fuchsia Flush: Fuchsia flash is a light fuchsia shade which is more towards light pink tone. Will go well with fair skin.
Rum Riche: This is a brown-mauve shade and perfect for everyday use. Will go well with all skin tones. This is the shade I loved the most in the entire range.
Deepest Cherry: This is a deep wine shade similar to nykaa so matte! lipstick in wicked wine.
Pink Wink: This shade is similar to warm latte in this range but is pink in colour. This too looks shimmery and quite similar to Maybelline New York super stay 24 hour lipstick in shade ‘Continuous Coral’.
Red Revolution: This is a perfect red shade and looks beautiful on all skin tones.
Blissful Berry: This is a deep purple shade and perfect for occasions or everyday if you prefer.
All the lipsticks have shine to it and are not exactly matte.
Fragrance: All the lipsticks have a mild sweet smell to it which isn’t OTT.
How I use and staying power: To use, simply swipe the lipsticks directly on the lips and you are done. The lipsticks glide on easily like butter and settle into shiny and opaque finish. I am not really a fan of lipsticks that shine but I am fine with these since the shine is not incredible and is subtle that wont looks flashy. The lipsticks are quite opaque and you get a well pigmented colour in just one swipe. They do transfer after light meals but leave behind a visible stain especially if you use darker shades. If you have heavy meals, you might have to reapply as the lipstick might completely go away; I anyways remove the lipstick before heavy meals (who wants to eat it?). Shade options are great and overall, i love them.
